EAST Holy Land Study Tour 2022

15 Days, 27 November to 11 December 2022. Picture yourself cupping your hands to drink water at the same spring where Gideon’s band of 300 select men did the same, climbing the steps that led to the altar of the golden calf in the northern kingdom of Israel, or studying about Jesus calming the storms as you sail across the Sea of Galilee. This is an opportunity to study God’s Word in its original setting. For more information about the Study Tour email studytour@east.edu.sg. Read more

I & II Samuel (Day Course)

OT538 I & II Samuel (3 credits)
Fridays, 1.45 pm-5.00 pm

The books of Samuel invite the reader to a journey from the theological summit of messianism to the valley of human depravities.  On this journey we will encounter famed heroes and failed fathers, loyal servants and lowly scumbags.  This journey welcomes us to the house of David, on a guided tour through his palace to private spaces behind doors where we will encounter acts of magnanimity as well as manipulation.  This class is designed with the hope of inviting you on a transformational journey as we deal with contemporary issues concerning leadership, parenting, role of women, friendship, and servanthood.


Jeremy Chew, PhD, as a Cru Singapore staff (since 1991), ministered to high school and campus students both locally and overseas as a missionary.  He received his PhD from Asbury Theological Seminary.  His greatest desire is to integrate biblical exposition with spiritual formation.
