The study pilgrimage, Acts in Eastertide, engages the Scriptures, places, and pilgrimage traditions associated with the books of Acts which are set in present-day Israel-Palestine (e.g., Acts 1–12, 15, 21–26). The course will embody the post-Resurrection movements and narratives of the early Church, beginning with the Ascension of Jesus and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost in Jerusalem, moving through Judea and Samaria, and sending participants home to the ends of the world. Topics of interest will include the Jerusalem Temple, Old Testament figures mentioned in Acts, the Judas traditions, and the stoning of Stephen, as well as the figures of James the Great, James the brother of Jesus, Philip the Deacon, the Ethiopian Eunuch, Dorcas (Tabitha), Cornelius, Peter, and Paul. Day trips are planned to Hebron (Judea), Nablus (Samaria), Beit Jamal Monastery (St Stephen), Jaffa, and Caesarea Maritima. In the spirit of Pentecost, the course will include voices and site visits representing various cultures and traditions of the Christian Church. All nights will be spent at St George’s College in Jerusalem.
