Description

You’re invited to a Lands of the Bible Event with Tom Yoder Neufeld and Ingrid Reichard.

Join these two popular Bible teachers on Wednesday, January 17, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Conrad Grebel University College.

Ingrid Reichard will begin with a talk entitled: The Geography & Theology of the Book of Judges. Along with insights about the northern and southern kingdoms of Israel, Ingrid will share photos of locations where events in Judges took place from her past Holy Land tours.

Tom Yoder Neufeld will speak about: “Paul the Jewish apostle to the Gentiles confronts the Empire with the gospel of Christ.” With photos and commentary Tom will show what ancient sites in Greece, Italy, and Turkey associated with Paul’s travels can teach us about the beginnings of the Christian faith.


At this event, you’ll:

  • Discover how the book of Judges is arranged geographically, not chronologically
  • Learn what contributed to the captivity of the 10 northern tribes of Israel and why the fate of Judah was so different
  • See photos and hear stories about meaningful sites in the lands of the Bible including: Israel/Palestine, Jordan, Italy, Greece, and Turkey
  • Find out about Ingrid Reichard’s upcoming Holy Land tour that includes sites in Jerusalem, Petra (Jordan), and Israel’s southernmost city—Eilat
  • Hear about Tom Yoder Neufeld’s World of Paul tour that includes stops along Paul’s second missionary journey such as Thessaloniki, Athens, and Corinth in Greece PLUS Rome

Refreshments included. This event is FREE but be sure to reserve your tickets!
