Let’s plunge into the Bible together!
Zion Bible Studies has many fascinating and relevant videos to help deepen your appreciation of the Bible.
Israel: The Land God Calls His Own
The only land God calls “My land” is Israel. It represents the starting point, destiny, and ultimate destination of all of humanity, not just the nation of Israel. As both a physical location and the spiritual epicenter of the world, its story and history are His story. By considering its centrality in the Bible and the prophecies pertaining to it that are more current than today’s newspapers, we come to appreciate that missing this is not missing part of the Bible’s message, it is missing the Bible.
Biblical Holy Days and Their Messages
Holy days punctuate the cycle of the Biblical calendar almost monthly. Observing them obligates Israel, but their messages impact everyone who takes the Bible seriously as God’s will revealed in His word. By focusing on the themes that are unique to each of these days, our growing through God’s word comes to include our growing according to the rhythm God mapped out in the Bible. We probe what each of these themes invokes — and what responses they should evoke from us.
The Torah: The Five Books of Moses
The Five Books of Moses are God’s eternal word, transmitted directly by Him at Sinai. Despite the common mistranslation of “Torah,” the Hebrew name means not “law” but “teaching.” The Torah’s teachings are as timely as they are timeless. We delve into the Torah according to a tradition of study spanning over three millennia, in light of all the nuances of the original Hebrew text, to extract the lessons it contains that are no less relevant today than they were to the Israelites at Sinai.
Roadmap of the Prophets: Visions of Isaiah
Solely by answering the question “What is God’s word saying?” can we approach the question “What is God’s word saying to us?” The words of the prophets can truly inspire us once we first allow them to inform us. Only by listening attentively to them can we glean their salient messages and abiding, universal impact. We immerse ourselves in their words, in light of all the nuances of the original Hebrew text, to understand what they said then — and what that means now to us.
