Taking the ABF on a Trip Back in Time

Feb 14, 2005

How do you make your ABF series of lessons on Old Testament Survey come alive? Take the students on a field trip to the Oriental Institute Museum on the campus of the University of Chicago, of course. That’s what Bruce Barlow, who has been teaching the “Real People” ABF at Winona Lake (IN) Grace Brethren Church did Saturday. Here Jim and Nancy Dougan, Dalton and Paulette Kanode, Rich and Kathy Barnhart and others listen to a tour guide describe artifacts and relate them to various Old Testament characters. An interesting highlight of the trip involved meeting–and hearing observations from–a modern-day Iraqi woman from Mosul, site of the biblical Nineveh. (Gordon Austin photo) Posted by Hello
