Have you ever wanted to get to know the world of the Bible better? Well, you can! The University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute houses a collection of artifacts from ancient Israel, Assyria, Canaan, Egypt, and Babylon, and once a year our own Dr. Cuffey leads a tour of these artifacts, focusing on the items that are most relevant for understanding the Old Testament better.
- 12:45 – Meet outside the front doors of the Oriental Institute (The Oriental Institute is located on the campus of the University of Chicago, in the southside Chicago community of Hyde Park, at 1155 East 58th Street, Chicago, IL 60637)
- 1:00-4:00 – Tour of Oriental Institute’s Old Testament-related artifacts.
- 4:00-5:00 – Explore on your own (museum, gift shop, nearby stores)
- 5:00 – Dinner at a nearby restaurant (optional if you arrive on your own; if you ride with the seminary group, however, this is a part of the tour, even though you will need to pay for your own meal).
