Study Tour to Jordan & Israel

Explore the land, culture and text of the Bible with this escorted tour led by Dr Sarah Harris

31st August – 16th September 2019

Following the success of our 2017 trip, Carey is delighted to offer a guided tour of Israel & Jordan again in 2019 where we will explore the land, culture, and text of the Bible. This trip aims to stimulate and enhance you reading of scripture as we visit ancient sites where we will read biblical texts in situ and hear the words and message afresh.

This tour is available as a Carey undergraduate and postgraduate course for credit, and for personal interest.

What previous participants say:

“The entire Israel study tour was amazing; but one significant personal encounter with Christ was at the Calvary where he spoke to me through John 14. It has been a life changing experience knowing that he is so real in our lives.”

“For me one of the (many) key moments was at The Garden Tomb when I turned to leave the ‘room’ and the sign on the door was ‘He is Risen!’ It was a reminder that we can get caught up in the intellectual discussions about the ‘actual’ locations, but wherever it was, Jesus did not stay in the tomb – he is the risen God! That is who we worship!”


Details and Costs

Total Package Price $7,190 per person (twin share) + Carey audit fee ($300) or Carey course credit fee for 2019

Study Tour Interview

Sarah Harris talks with Director of Ministry Training Jonny Weir about his reflections of the 2017 Tour. Jonny has been a Pastor and preacher for 30+ years. He says

“I so wished I had done this when I started in ministry back in 1989”

“The extra dimension it would add if I started my preaching now would be phenomenal!”
