Besides the spiritual message found in the biblical text, the narrative that delves into the history, geography, society and politics of this ancient land sometimes is vague and incomplete. The archaeological research of the past 150 years puts “flesh onto the bones” of the biblical narrative- giving us a better glimpse of the past.

Survey the religions that arise from Western tradition and thought – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Each of these beliefs has sacred texts, dogmas, rituals and symbols that are often starkly different from one another, yet share a common heritage. Explore the bases of these faiths, and gain a new understanding about how humans demonstrate what it means to be religious.
