Take a theological tour of Israel! A stronger grasp of biblical principles will open a new understanding of the Bible, theology, missions, God’s purposes in history, and a more profound comprehension of the relationship between Israel and the Church. This study will result in a firm commitment to the faithfulness of God (not only to Israel, but also to each believer), a broader view of current events, and a burden for the salvation of Israel and the nations.
Dr. Jim Sibley served Southern Baptists in Jewish ministry for more than 30 years, including almost 16 years as a missionary in Israel, planting congregations in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. He is Research Professor of Biblical Studies at Israel College of the Bible and he and his wife, Kathy, just returned from a two-year assignment in Israel this year. Having received so much by growing up at First Baptist Dallas, Jim has had the opportu-nity to give back—by teaching young adults in the past and now in Discipleship U. With degrees from Baylor University, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Southwestern Semi-nary, Jim is passionate about helping others gain a deeper understanding of Scripture and the crucial role God has for Israel. He and Kathy have two married daughters and six grandchildren.
