HOW IT ALL BEGAN…
My first visits to Israel, in the mid-1970’s, changed my life forever! Having read/studied the Bible many times through, I found a solid Biblical frame-of-reference. But because those early tours were the typical touristy tours, many questions remained.
In the 1992, I co-hosted a short scholar-guided tour. This tour specialized in strong scholarship focused on the GEOGRAPHY / TOPOGRAPHY of the Land – along with a clear picture of the Land’s influence on HISTORY. Many of my long standing questions were finally answered!
The incredible scholarship further confirmed my direction and long-held conclusion: word studies, exegesis, and inductive study, were all excellent and necessary study tools – but those tools often lacked three foundational basics necessary for proper biblical interpretations with life applications.
THREE FOUNDATIONAL KEYS ARE ESSENTIAL
1. Geography / Topography of the Land
2. Ancient Middle Eastern / Hebrew Culture
3. Ancient Middle Eastern / Hebrew History
For the last 50+ years, I have dedicated myself to studying the WORD and pursuing answers to my constant “why” questions. With that pursuit, and the Lord’s calling to take people to “the pupil of God’s eye” and other Bible Lands, I began teaching classes. The obvious need was to have “building blocks” written down for the students study.
From a three-ring notebook the Discover The Bible Lands! Study Manual was born. For over 20 years DTBL! has developed a pre-tour & touring system like no other in the industry. The DTBL! traveler is prepared for a lifetime experience. Step-by-step we visually absorb much through DTBL! Presentations & Classes using the DTBL! Study Manual. The final chapter is stepping into the Land for on-site discovery… knowing the essential three foundational keys.
There is a real sense of ahhhh… and awe when those keys unlock large passages of Scripture. Suddenly, things fit together and makes sense! The practical, everyday applications, sweep over one’s inner being – faces light up with joy!
God gave truth–and often illustrated it with simple visuals with terms that were common knowledge at the time. He wanted everyone to know what He was saying… and for all to intimately know HIM!
