Jerusalem Center: 2020 to 2021!

Dear friends and co-workers!
Let us welcome the new year boldly with a New Song. Let us put the focus on the NEW, so beautifully expressed in Psalm 33:3-4:

“Sing unto Him a new song, play skillfully with a shout of joy.
For the Word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth.”

Let us thank for a fruitful and blessed study year of 2020 at JCBT – in spite of the Corona virus – and look forward to the new year. It has some big changes:

  •  The director of the study program will be changed from Mirja Ronning who led the program for last 25 years to the most capable hands of Reinier de Blois director of Nida Institute, a change that came about by a miraculous route.
  • The 5 month study program will be given mostly by Zoom, except for one month Land of Bible tour in May, Lord willing.
  • JCBT will focus on advanced teaching to consultants to fill a need in the BT world of well prepared consultants of OT, for which there is a great lack. There are 11 highly-qualified students in the program from 9 locations.

Let us remember at all times that:

“He who dwells in secret place of the Most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord: He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in him I will trust.”
Psalm 91:1-2

With best wishes for a blessed year – BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING!
Halvor and Mirja Ronning
Founders and Co-directors of JCBT
