    Our study trips provide participants with experiences and insights into the culture, geography and history of the land of the Bible. Vital to this is walking the land as Jesus and his talmidim (disciples) did. The followers of Jesus not only learned with their eyes and ears but also with their feet. In so doing they grew into a close net community. As we learn with our feet, the Word of God grows our perspective in new and exciting ways.

    Under the Fig Tree study experience are not the typical “tours” where tourist sites drive the tour. We view our study trip ministry as a message to be experienced, one from which God will seek fruit. Signing on to travel with George will involve going to a variety of key biblical sites along with ones not found on typical tours.

    Our trip experiences include visiting upper and lower Egypt (pyramids), the Sinai, the Negev and Judah wilderness, central and southern Jordan (Petra), north and central Galilee, Jerusalem and the old city, as well as traditional and non-traditional sites.

  • Israel in Depth

    Bill Geisel

    When Jesus said He was The Way in John 14, He meant more than is seen at first glance. When we learn in the places where He taught and the culture of His people, we begin to understand His teaching in depth. Come and walk the ancient Land of Israel and discover why His early followers were called The Way and how that can change your life now!

    Bill first studied in Israel in 1998 and has been teaching groups there since 2000. He currently pastors a fellowship of passionate disciples in the greater Knoxville, TN area. Utilizing insights gained through the historic context of the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, Bill brings a deepened perspective on important relationships and Kingdom issues. He also is a missionary in the role of Tennessee State Minister with Capitol Commission, whose mission is to serve state leaders and their staff through Bible study, pastoral support and sharing the Good News of the Gospel.
