WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME AND VISIT US HERE IN ISRAEL?
Israel College of the Bible is at the forefront of biblical teaching in Israel. It is the only Hebrew-speaking Messianic Bible college in Israel, from which the next generation of leaders are being trained and sent out. Our desire is to use our expertise not only to build the body in Israel, but also to spiritually enrich our brothers and sisters from around the world, by sharing the knowledge that we have about the land, history, and culture of the Bible.
Study the Bible with us in the land where it all happened!
