CIU STUDENTS JOIN OTHER BELIEVERS ON THE MT. OF OLIVES TO COMMEMORATE PALM SUNDAY
Columbia International University has an educational partnership with Jerusalem University College, an evangelical institution on Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. CIU’s Middle Eastern Studies majors study a year at JUC, focusing on Jewish or Arab studies, and a number of students attend for a semester to study the Bible in the land of the Bible among the people of the Bible. The courses students take in Jerusalem transfer to their CIU programs.
This spring, Brandon Thompson, a Pastoral Theology major, and Jared Lee, a Youth Ministry, Family, & Culture major, are studying at JUC. As the world celebrated Palm Sunday, the CIU students joined JUC classmates in actually commemorating the events of that first Palm Sunday on the Mt. of Olives where it happened. Palm branches in hand, they reflected on Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-11).
