The Shema Israel Bible course is designed for people with Jewish heritage or even Christians who wish to rediscover their Jewish roots. Shaped from a specific Hebrew perspective this course takes into account not only the Hebrew text but also the testimony of ancient Jewish sources.

The author of this course is Dr. Jacques Benyamin Doukhan, a former Yeshiva student, and currently professor of Hebrew Language, Exegesis and Jewish Studies, as well as director of the Institute of Jewish-Christian Studies at Andrews University. He is also the editor of Shabbat Shalom and has authored a number of books and articles dealing with Jewish-Christian issues, including Israel and the Church: Two Voices for the Same God.

 

Shalom Adventure
Jewish Heritage Torah Study

*Free Lessons*

A series of 15 lessons which cover important topics such as how to know God's will for our lives, faith, hope, why God allows suffering, what happens when we die, and much much more. Each lesson will cover the life of one of our patriarchs or matriarchs and a specific lesson we can learn from their lives. For instance this first lesson is about Abraham, but it is also about faith.

For some people who are well versed in the Scriptures they may be familiar with the facts about each biblical personality, but the topics, for example faith, are topics that we can never mine the depths of. As those who are acquainted with the Scriptures apply the principles of these lessons to their lives they will possess a richer, fuller walk with Adon haShamayim v’haEretz (Master of the Heavens and the Earth). The Bible novice will find these lessons simple to understand and follow, and will experience a life-changing surge of freshness and newness as they come to know God through His Word. Thus, for both the beginner and for the seasoned veteran, the Jewish Heritage Scripture Studies will prove valuable as you apply the lessons to your individual life today.
