Dr. Ergun Caner, president of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, arrived in Israel Monday night and is leading a group or more than 90 through the Holy Land for the Seminar in Theological Studies course.
The group includes residential and Distance Learning Program students from 24 states and two from Japan.
The relatively new program is unique in that it allows DLP students to meet one-on-one with a professor and tour the land where Jesus walked. Caner is lecturing each night.
The team is scheduled to return Jan. 15, in time for the residential spring semester.
