Jordan Study Trip 2023 Overview
Extension Dates: June 4—7, 2023
Dr. Grisanti will be leading a 4-day Jordan extension trip, starting right at the end of the 2023 TMS Israel study trip. Like the rest of the TMS trip participants, we will have Saturday, June 3, as a free day, but bring our luggage to Jerusalem and roll them to our hotel for Saturday night. On Sunday morning, when most of the group are winging their way back to the US, we will be riding our bus to the border crossing between Israel and Jordan. We will be travelling with brothers and sisters from Magic Valley Bible Church in Twin Falls, Idaho.

- In order for Dr. Grisanti to act as the official trip guide, without an Israeli guide present, everyone will be considered his students and therefore required to participate in lectures and exams. The exams will be straightforward and there will be review sessions to prepare beforehand. However, you will not be required to receive academic credit for the trip.
- Be prepared for full days of walking (including steps up and down). You will be tired at the end of the day but will be overjoyed at what you are learning and blessed by the fellowship of fellow-students of the Word. To prepare for the trip, plan on getting a good set of walking shoes and put together a walking regimen.
- Participants need to be in general agreement with TMS’s doctrinal statement. Teaching will be from a futuristic or dispensational, premillennial perspective, expecting the nation of Israel (made up of believing Israelites) to be established once again in the land of promise. Questions about this can be directed to Dr. Grisanti.
- Many people have concerns about the safety of traveling to Israel. Consider this helpful article on the topic, topic, Is it Safe to Travel to Israel?
