Join Williamson College on Saturday, April 27, 2019 and Learn to Understand the Bible Through a Middle Eastern Lens!

"The Bible was written FOR us, but it was not written TO us. It was written to a people in another country and in another time. Only through understanding the culture, language, and theology of the ancient Israelites can we fully grasp the context of the Word of God today. Join us for the Journey!"

There will be 4 sessions during this event:

Session I: Reading the Bible through a Middle Eastern Lens
with Kristi McLelland:

Speaker, teacher and professor at Williamson College, Kristi has dedicated her life to teaching people how to study the Bible for themselves through a Middle Eastern lens. Her great desire for people to truly experience the love of God has birthed her desire to lead biblical study trips to Israel, Turkey & Greece, Jordan, and Italy through her New Lens Biblical Studies ministry.


Session II: Chronological and Historical Meta-Narrative of Scripture
with Dave Dillon.

Dave uses his corporate training expertise to serve as Williamson College's Chair of Ministry Leadership degree. He has been with the college for 18 years, sharing his vast knowledge of Bible and theology. He has also served as a Minister of Christian Education and Youth Pastor. His joy is to watch how God changes the lives of students as he leads them into a deeper knowledge of Scripture.

Session III: Context of the Bible through Archeology and Geography
with David McCall.

After 38 years of business experience, David now serves as Executive Pastor of Highland Park Church in Nashville. He has taught Bible study for over twelve years, and is also a professor at Williamson College. With a degree in Ministry Leadership and a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Williamson, David has started developing his true passion of leading biblical study trips to Israel.
