About The Israel Bible
The Israel Bible is the world’s first Tanakh (Bible) centered around the Land of Israel, the People of Israel, and the dynamic relationship between them. Designed for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers alike, The Israel Bible offers a unique commentary that seeks to explain God’s focus on the Land of Israel alongside the original Hebrew text, transliteration of select Hebrew verses, and the New Jewish Publication Society translation. Throughout this website, you will find commentaries that highlight verses that relate to Israel, including relevant quotes and perspectives from prime ministers, as well as abundant maps, charts and videos.
In the 70 years since the modern rebirth of the State of Israel, the Jewish State has been at the forefront of the world’s attention. Today, there are countless efforts to vilify the Jewish state. Yet, there is also an ever-expanding movement of biblical Zionists who stand alongside the nation of Israel as an expression of their commitment to God’s eternal word. As we seek to understand the clash between these two conflicting ideologies, while seeking to make sense of the modern world’s great interest in Israel, the need for The Israel Bible has never been so timely or important.
From the land which has always served as the home for the Bible, it is our fervent prayer that the Almighty bless our efforts to inspire the hearts, minds and actions of our readers. Standing on the great shoulders of those who came before us, may The Israel Bible be a small contribution toward bringing about the final redemption of Israel and the world.
