Over 100,000 alumni have already completed the program, finding a deeper love for the Bible through classroom community, exploring the original Scriptures and revealing new layers of meaning in the Biblical stories they love.
One of the many unique elements of the program is the impressive roster of over 300 instructors.

Classes take place weekly in a small group online classroom setting. Students receive a deep immersion in the Biblical texts, cultural context, and language of the time in an agreeable format that unlocks the depths of Biblical wisdom in a turn-key way.
According to Jonathan Lipnick, Dean of Holy Land Studies, “Our live teachers in a virtual classroom setting have engaged adult students at every level, across 108 countries and in 6 languages.
