SHEMA ISRAEL

WHY SHEMA?

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.

WHO WROTE IT

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.

WHERE TO START

“The Bullet of the Bible”, as the first lesson is entitled, will help understand the value of the Bible, that common ground of Jews and Christians. “I learned all the Torah,” boasted the proud student of the Bible. “Good,” the Master answered, “but what did you learn from the Torah?”
