It can be easy to read the Bible cover to cover and ignore the thousands of names, places, routes, climate conditions, and references to plants, animals, and culture. While they might not seem relevant to us, every one of them was recorded for a reason, and understanding those reasons will unlock deep and rewarding spiritual knowledge. The Understanding the Bible Series helps unlock this knowledge.
The Understanding the Bible Series was developed by Carta Jerusalem, a highly-respected academic publisher in Jerusalem, Israel. For the past 61 years, Carta Jerusalem has worked with the world’s top scholars, cartographers, and on-site archaeologists. Located in Jerusalem, the publishers have the unique advantage of being surrounded by biblical and historical significance on a daily basis.
Each of the included volumes in this collection explores a different aspect of the historical background of the Bible. You’ll find volumes covering Biblical Archaeology, Biblical Kingdoms & Empires, Great People of the Bible, the Gospels as Ancient Jewish Literature, the Geography of the Bible, the Ecology of the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and more.
Each volume is filled with beautiful, full color photography, helpful maps, and illustrations. Understanding the Bible includes many hyperlinked Bible references. This lets you have the referenced verse opened alongside the series, helping you visualize the story. The Understanding the Bible Series is a one-of-a-kind set that will bring the stories of the Bible to life.
