Bible Study Resources

Israel-a-history-of.com wishes to build an interactive community of Bible Study resources, including forums, discussion boards and other resources for individuals interested in expanding their knowledge on God, the Bible, Israel, the ancient Near East, the Middle East, and any other topic that may be related. Israel is a unique country, born from mysterious beginnings in the book of Genesis. We can all trace our roots to Abraham, thus, fulfilling God's Promise for him to become a father of many Nations.

Muslims, Jews, and Christians all share many more similarities than differences. However, this fact seems to be lost in the modern day. Help create an environment which promotes learning, increases knowledge, and challenges others to think.

These Bible study resources and forums are open to Muslims, Jews, Taoists, Buddhists, Christians, Atheists, non-religious persons, and anybody else interested in open discussion.

Submitted material is subject to review and editing before posting in one of the orums. No posts will be declined based on religion, faith, creed, ethnicity, or gender. Submit freely and openly, but appropriately please.

We wish to create an interactive community of learners and seekers. Feel free to post anything on your mind by clicking on the link below!

BIBLE STUDY FORUMS

The Book of Enoch

The Book of Enoch was written by the prophet Enoch, found in Genesis 5. Enoch was one of only two people in the Bible to not experience death. God took him when he was 365 years old. The Book of Enoch is fully of mystery and intrigue, and played a significant role in the writing of the New Testament.


Who Was Melchizedek?

Genesis 14:18 depicts Abraham paying respects and tithing to a mysterious "Priest of the Most High God". This figure was known as Melchizedek. His identity is shrouded in mystery.


The Nephilim

The Nephilim appear in the opening verses of Genesis 6. Their identity could change our modern view of God and the Bible, as well as our understanding of ancient "myths".


Ancient Israel from Adam to Abraham

Ancient Israel was guided by the very hand of God. The Bible is a record of one family answering God's call, and creating a nation He would claim His own.


The Garden of Eden

The search for the Garden of Eden has been an ongoing search for thousands of years. New technology, such as satellite imagery, may have finally solved the mystery.


The History of Palestine

The Old Testament speaks not of only Israel, but also the land of Palestine. The two are inextricably connected. The history of Palestine was shaped by a number of civilizations and cultures, all making up Canaanite society.


Jericho Israel

Jericho has shown traces of civilization dating over 9,000 years ago! This ancient city was a pivotal city throughout the Old Testament. The battle of Jericho remains one of the most famous battles in history.


Who Were the Habiru?

The Habiru are closely connected with the ancient Hebrews. The two may have been referred to as the same by outside countries and rulers. They play a dominant role in the Amarna Letters.


Nimrod and the Tower of Babel

Nimrod was a key figure in ancient Israel. He was the driving force behind the Tower of Babel. He was a "mighty hunter", seemingly in defiance of God. He was the founder of the Babylonians, and the system of religion which would battle God throughout all of history.


Ancient Mesopotamia Forum

Ancient Mesopotamia and ancient Israel shared many close bonds. Some scholars claim the Mesopotamian hero Enkidu is one and same as the Biblical Enoch. The Patriarchs were closely tied to this land.


Abraham Discussion Forum

Abraham was promised by God to become a father of many nations. His children through Sarai, Hagar, and Keturah would lead to the founding of Israel and the Arab nations.

Visit the Sons of Noah

The sons of Noah were responsible for repopulating the world. Their descendants spread to all corners of the globe. Many claim Shem is actually the Melchizedek Abraham encountered in Genesis.
