ISRAEL BIBLE PARK
Re-creating the life and times of the Bible in the very place where it was first written…
Inspiring a new generation with the Bible’s beauty, meaning & relevance…
Rising on the very site where young David fought Goliath and Biblical Israel lived and worked and worshipped thousands of years ago — ISRAEL BIBLE PARK is a living history museum.
It is being modeled on Virginia’s COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG and California’s RENAISSANCE FAIR.
Costumed guides, well-versed and educated in the arts, crafts, and culture of ancient Israel, will guide visitors from across Israel and around the world in a personal encounter with the life and times of the Bible.
They will bring alive the past and remind us all of the lessons and values to be gained from the Bible for our own lives today.
This is the largest Bible Times model village & re-creation ever undertaken anywhere in the world — and it is being built in the very place where these stories originally took place.
Linked to the world via modern technology it will inspire not only those who visit in person, but millions more who will interact via live Internet technology — the present touching the past as never before….
Through AMERICAN FRIENDS OF ISRAEL BIBLE PARK
you and your school, congregation or organization can be part of this history-making undertaking.
In ISRAEL BIBLE PARK biblical farms will grow and harvest crops as they did thousands of years ago. Grapes and olives will be harvested from vines and trees cultivated with the same methods used in Biblical times..
The biblical town rising in this living history museum will function in the same way as its ancient counterpart, with shops, and stalls, homes and cottage industries just as they were thousands of years ago.
Market day will be every day, displaying a harvest of biblically grown crops and hand-made crafts for sale to modern day visitors. Weddings and harvest festivals, village theaters and celebrations so familiar to our forefathers will be carried on just as they were in Bible times.
Children will experience stories from the Bible presented with puppets as they might have been in Joshua’s time or pet the animals that might have been found on the farms of the Holy Land in the time of King David.
The larger building components of this historic undertaking are being underwritten by generous major donors and prominent philanthropists. However there remain wonderful smaller opportunities for American individuals, congregations and organizations to participate in ISRAEL BIBLE PARK , and to be publicly recognized for their contribution to this international showcase of the Bible.
