JUC 511 - Physical Settings of the Bible

(4) A study of the physical features of the land of the Bible, stressing geographical factors affecting settlement and communication in the various regions. Readings, preparatory map study, and lectures provide the background for field trips. Relevant archaeological, historical and biblical material is correlated with sites, roads, and features in each region, but the main emphasis of the course is geography. Regions studied and visited include Galilee, Golan Heights, Judah, Samaria, Negev, Shephelah, Jordan and Jezreel Valleys, Benjamin, Sharon Plain, Philistia, and Transjordan (the Medabah Plateau, Moab, and Edom). This course is required for all graduate students admitted to the JUC program. Undergraduate students may be allowed to take this course but they must meet all the graduate-level requirements of the course. Enrollment is limited to students admitted to the study abroad semester or year program at Jerusalem University College in Jerusalem, Israel.
