About Jerusalem University College
The university was founded in 1957 by Dr. G. Douglas Young to enrich the understanding of the Scriptures through a firsthand encounter with the land, culture, languages, and history of Israel.
The university is housed on historic Mount Zion, a few yards from the traditional site of Christ’s Last Supper and the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. It sits atop the foundations of the ancient walls of Jesus’ day with the excavation of the important Essene gate literally in its backyard.
