Journey of Promise: from Glory to Glory!
A travel course hosted by Regent College, open to all.
Led by Professor Rikk and Katie Watts with Pastor Bronwyn Spilsbury
This journey focuses on Jesus in His world. Whether on the shores of Galilee or the Temple Mount, each unique site brings home the historical reality of the person, Jesus, the LORD himself among us.
While we sometimes feel Christianity is under assault, several high-profile, non-Christian thinkers have recently shown how much our modern world—East and West—owes to the Gospel. As one eminent historian put it: “the Gospel unleashed the most extraordinary revolution humanity has ever seen.”
Our aim is to encourage and strengthen your understanding of and love for Him, your confidence in the trustworthiness of the Gospels, and your appreciation for the staggering impact of their message. Our hope is to equip you to share your faith with confidence, and above all, that you will find yourself encountering Jesus anew. Katie and I are very much looking forward to sharing Him with you all.”
Unashamedly a Jesus enthusiast, Rikk Watts is Research Professor of New Testament at Regent College where he has taught the Life of Jesus and Gospels classes for over 20 years. He has a special interest in how the Old Testament shapes the New, and the history of ideas, particularly the impact of the Gospel. He has led several tours to Israel and Egypt, and is a sought-after speaker both in the church and in academic settings, around the world.
