2023 Pilgrimage to Egypt
Kirk in the Hills is planning our next pilgrimage of spiritual growth and enrichment to Egypt. We will encounter the religious experiences of the ancient Egyptians and discover the roots of our own Biblical origins. This is a country that saved Jacob’s family from starvation, educated Moses, and shielded Jesus from Herod’s wrath.
We will have the opportunity to visit the monumental remains of the Pharaonic Egypt with its old and magnificent historical treasures as well as modern Egypt’s mosques, squares and the Nile. We will visit the cities of Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor.
We will meet members of the Coptic church, visit some of the oldest mosques and learn what it is like to live as a Christian in a predominantly Muslim country.
Our tour guide is the esteemed Old Testament scholar, Dr. Theodore Hiebert. He has a Ph.D. in Classical Hebrew and Hebrew Scriptures, a M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and a B.A. in English Literature from Fresno Pacific University. Dr Hiebert’s research has been primarily in the Pentateuch and the Prophets. (Information courtesy of McCormick Theological Seminary)
