Abstract

The perceptions of educators who participated in a Bible lands study tour were investigated. Using a qualitative research model, participants shared their thoughts before the tour, during it, immediately after and again four years later. Interviews and observations during the tour recorded in-depth and general reactions to experiences. The literature indicates that visits to the Bible lands impact people spiritually. This investigation offers evidence that the participating educators on this study tour perceived spiritual and professional impacts as a result of the tour. They also perceived that after the tour, they were able to reveal Jesus and the biblical narrative with more authenticity, empathy, passion and insight.
