First Presbyterian to host lectures on biblical history

Anonymous • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:07 AM

Fleming divides his time by lecturing around the world, leading study tours to the Holy Land and the Mediterranean world, teaching guide courses in Israel, directing ministries of biblical resources in Israel and the U.S., and supervising the explorations at the Antiquity Center in LaGrange, Ga.

He also serves as director of the Biblical Resources Study Center, an ecumenical organization with offices in Israel and the U.S. The center produces audio-visual aids for teaching Bible history, geography, archaeology and theology.

Fleming’s lectures weave four perspectives to help us understand biblical times: archaeology, history, geography and theology. He uses an ecumenical approach in bringing together old and recent discoveries to assist in our faith journeys.

Through Fleming’s lectures, you embark on a journey to the ancient lands of the Bible and learn of new discoveries of ancient manuscripts that have added significantly to our understanding of the events, hopes and fears of the people in various biblical periods. He makes extensive use of slides showing geography, culture and archaeological discoveries in biblical lands. These bring us close to the lives of the ancient teachers and prophets, and to the peoples that heard Jesus.

The lectures are scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23; at 9 and 10:45 a.m., and 1:15 and 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24; and at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 25. The lectures are free and open to the public.
