Origins of Christianity

with Dr John Dickson

What really happened in first-century Galilee and Judaea?

Join author and historian John Dickson on a journey throughout the length and breadth of modern Israel & Palestine —from the Dead Sea to Lake Galilee, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean. We will investigate the key sites of Jesus’ life, explore his cultural background, separate fact from fiction, and piece together how a peasant preacher changed the course of history.

On the tour you will be:

  • Learning about the different sects of Judaism
  • Travelling to Judeo sites to gain a greater understanding of where Christianity was birthed from
  • Welcomed as a believer or a skeptic
