"It's not if you come to IBEX, it's when." - Dr. William Varner
The Master's College Israel Bible Extension program was founded in 1995 as a semester-abroad, in-depth study of the Scripture based on experiencing the land, culture, and language of the Bible first hand. Students are afforded the opportunity to live, travel, and study in the land for three months, where the combination of study and hands-on experience is unequalled. Doug Bookman, co-founder of the IBEX program, has been known to comment, "Everyone has an impression of the land of the Bible before they come. Their impression is wrong."
