Dr. Robert Duke
Dr. Robert Duke is director of Museum of the Bible’s Scholars Initiative, a Dead Sea Scrolls scholar, and a professor at Azusa Pacific University. Duke has studied, excavated, and been a guide in Israel since 1996. From Jerusalem University College to Hebrew University to the Albright Institute for Archaeological Research, his diverse educational and research experiences in the land will be evident on this trip. He has excavated at several sites in the land, including Qumran, El-Araj, and Tel Shimron. His love of the Dead Sea Scrolls culminated in his PhD from UCLA, which focused on the Aramaic texts found in the caves. He desires participants to explore the land, not just visit, which he hopes will lead to a deeper reading of the Bible.
