In this 6-part series, we'll study various aspects of the critical transition in the biblical narrative when the wandering Israelites enter and settle the land of Canaan. Using source texts from the books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel & Kings, as well as modern archaeological excavations, participants will track the geography of conquest and settlement, examine the interactions between Israel and the other peoples of the land, contemplate the paradigm shift from Twelve Tribes to a United Kingdom, experience the genesis of pilgrimage to the Holy Temple, and explore the impact of Kings David and Solomon on the political and architectural landscape, especially in and around Jerusalem. Virtual tours of the biblical geography and of well-known archaeological sites will enable us to experience each event as it plays out, and better understand how this historical period serves as a foundation for our own faith identities and our relationship with the Holy Land today.
