Classrooms Without Walls

We believe that the best learning environment for studying the context of the Bible and encountering the mosaic of the modern Middle East is a classroom without walls.

EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS

Read how studying in Jerusalem has impacted how our students understand the world of the Bible and the Modern Middle East today. In the words of Phillip, disciple of Jesus, "Come and see."

"The program and faculty at JUC were just what I needed. They set my feet on a path that ultimately led to a wonderful, fulfilling career and, more importantly, combined to inform and deepen my faith. What a rich resource, one that simply cannot be duplicated elsewhere in the world, awaits future students who find their way to Mount Zion." -Ron E. Tappy G. Albert Shoemaker Professor of Bible and Archaeology, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
