Statement of Beliefs
The Israel Bible™ was created to honor “the God, the People and the Land of Israel” from an Orthodox Jewish perspective. With our rich content and robust discussion of biblical text, we hope to connect with Jews and Christians who appreciate the biblical significance of the Land of Israel, the God given land of the Jews.
We are living in unique times. The twentieth century has seen the establishment of the modern State of Israel, as well as a rise in the number of Christians who are interested in studying Bible from a Jewish perspective. With these changes, the numbers of supporters recognizing Israel as the God given home for the Jews is growing and with Jews and Christians studying together, we believe that we can make a difference in history.
We pray that by learning together we will hasten the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy (3:1-3); “And it shall be at the end of the days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be firmly established at the top of the mountains…..and all the nations shall stream to it….And many peoples shall go, and they shall say, “Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mount, to the house of the God of Jacob, and let Him teach us of His ways, and we will go in His paths,” for out of Zion shall the Torah come forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
The Israel Bible™ website is a unique forum for Jews and Christians to study the Bible together. We encourage open dialogue and welcome respectful questions. However, since we are an Orthodox Jewish site, Bible study is intended to be from an Orthodox Jewish point of view and is meant to stay focused on our shared heritage of the Hebrew Bible, and not Christian Scripture. We ask that our readers are sensitive to our ‘mixed’ audience and follow the following guidelines when commenting on our site:
- Comments must be respectful and non offensive.
- Comments must not promote a Christian agenda such as proselytizing.
- Comments should stay focused on the Hebrew Bible and not refer to Christian Scripture.
Any comments that do not comply with these guidelines may be removed from the site. Comments that are particularly thoughtful or helpful may be utilized by The Israel Bible™ or its affiliated sites for educational or promotional purposes. If you have any questions about our guidelines or to report a comment you believe violates our guidelines, please contact us.
