SUSPENDED – Biblical Travel & Study Program with Br. John Barker, OFM

April 25, 2020 @ 8:00 AM - May 15, 2020 @ 5:00 PM

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic CTU has canceledor postponed all events until April. This event has been postponed until further notice.

Join the internationally renowned faculty of Catholic Theological Union for an experience in the Holy Lands of the Bible unlike any other.


Stand on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and watch the early-morning fishing boats. Climb the Mount of Olives and stand before the panorama that is the Old City of Jerusalem. Walk the streets of Ephesus and imagine Paul preaching there. Stand on the Areopagus in Athens, overshadowed by the Parthenon, and ponder the origins of early Christianity.


For more than 30 years, CTU Bible faculty have led Biblical Study and Travel Programs. This year’s program will be guided by Br. John R. Barker, OFM, Associate Professor of Old Testament Studies
