Hoppe, O.F.M., Ph.D., an expert on the Holy Land, you will look at Jerusalem’s special status in these religions. You will also explore the centrality of the city in the Hebrew Bible, which provides the basis for the city’s uniqueness, and in the New Testament.

In addition to examining the Holy City’s story through sacred literature, you will also discover its rich history by exploring the archaeology of the city. If you are interested in the contemporary issue of Jerusalem’s political status, this series will broaden your horizons.

The story of the city and its people over the millennia is a fascinating study of the human spirit in seeking an experience of the Divine.
