by Charissa Veal
CLEVELAND, Ga.,(TMNews) –Truett-McConnell College welcomed its first chapel of the Spring 2015 semester with a message from its own president, Emir Caner. On January 15, Dr. Caner asked, "When was the last time that you were a part of something bigger than yourself?"
Following a recap of the life of Conrad Grebel, an Anabaptist, Caner stated, "Revival isn't simply something that happens in your own heart. Revival is such a movement of God that it will happen to others...." He explained through the individual revival of Grebel, God caused a large scale revival to spread throughout the neighboring towns and to transform lives.
TMC Partners with the University of the Holy Land to Offer Three Week Summer Course in Israel
Truett-McConnell College is partnering with the University of the Holy Land to offer students a three week course in Israel this summer entitled, Historical Geography of the Bible I: Israel.
This course is designed to familiarize students with the physical stage on which most Biblical events transpired. The country is examined on a regional basis, observing how the character of each region, and the routes which passed through it, influenced the history of the area. Attention will be given to the imagery used by the Biblical writers in connection with each region. Issues in historical geography, natural history, archaeology, ancient texts, and anthropological models are explored.
