He also teaches courses on the culture, history and geography of the lands of the Bible.

He is also an instructor in an advanced educational program for licensed Israeli tour guides at the Yad Ben-Zvi Institute in Jerusalem, and at Tantur, a Christian research center between Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Dr. Wright holds the BA degree in anthropology from Bethel College (now Bethel University), an MA degree in the history of ancient Israel from the Institute of Holy Land Studies, an MA degree in Old Testament from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and the M Phil and PhD degrees in Bible and Ancient Near East from Hebrew Union College.

They are active members of East Jerusalem Baptist Church, a small congregation that represents an active mix of dedicated people from all over the world who live and minister in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. Dr. Wright finds his time in Jerusalem to be very fulfilling. "As a written record of God's work in the world, the Bible is a book that is quite real. It is a privilege to be able to explore the realities of the world of the Bible with so many students who are eager to learn on-site. There are clear connections between the ways that the people who lived in the lands of the Bible thought about God and organized their lives in ancient times, and how folks living in the same places respond to the Divine tug today. The longer I live in Jerusalem, the more I am learning to appreciate the consistent call of God on His people, and our responsibility to live whole lives that are characterized by shalom, the peace that only He can give." sha'alu shalom yerushalayim, yishlayu ohavyich "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may those who love you be at ease . . ." (Psalm 122:6) "It is a pleasure to recommend this atlas by the biblical scholar and experienced historical geographer, Paul Wright. Nothing is more important than the relationships of the great men and women of the Bible with God and with the land that God gave them. Wright provides the best possible introduction, with outstanding texts, maps, and photos, for the adventure of guiding the reader through the stories of the Bible." Richard S. Hess, Ph.D., Earl S.
