Jewish History is important to anyone who takes the Bible seriously to understand how God has moved throughout time and to understand fulfilled prophecies that are happening even during our life-time. For example, the re-formation of the Jewish State of Israel has been called a modern-day miracle. Learn about some of the amazing men and women who helped form and shape it!
The story of modern Israel is amazing in itself, but when taken within the context of the history of the Jewish people, it is clearly miraculous. The only explanation for this epic tale is a biblical one. ~ Israel Answers
