Josephus Flavius’ Military Camp
found at Kela Valley


The camp of Josephus’ force was discovered at the convergence of Kela Valley and the Jordan River by a team from the Bethsaida Excavations Project of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).

At the urgence of Dr. Carl Savage, who had noted for many years the presence of a stone enclosure across the Jordan River from the tell of Bethsaida, Dr. Rami Arav, chief archaeologist, led the team that also included Ann Haverkost (UNO), Hanan Shafir (project
photographer), and Itai Savage (Princeton University) to the location that was a perfect hiding place for
Josephus’ Jewish fighters, who revolted against the Romans.

Northwind offers a new style of online learning: Guided Education

When thinking about a seminary course, the common image is a professor in the front of a room, lecturing, and asking or answering questions. Sometimes facilitating peer learning in small discussion groups. This allows students to learn in a very direct way, but it is not the only way to teach. Northwind Theological Seminary courses are designed for the individual student who is taking a course anywhere (wifi available), anytime (at the student’s pace), on any device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone). 

The Pedagogy or teaching philosophy at Northwind is Guided Education. Faculty-Mentors vet resources, 
organize learning, and guide students in Video-Lecture Courses, Tutorial Courses, & Oxford-Style Courses.

Notice of Nondiscriminatory Policy

Northwind Theological Seminary admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, or other school-administered programs.
