SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR JEWISH HISTORY

While this bibliography is short, all these books are in print, are the best in their field and readily available from Amazon.com, etc. Please keep in mind that most of these authors assume the traditional Jewish point of view that denies that Yeshua was the Messiah. As long as that caveat is kept in mind, much can be gained from their insights into Jewish history and culture. MB.

TOURS and TRAVEL to ISRAEL
We often are asked to recommend good groups with whom to tour Israel. Your choice of Tour Operator will determine if you get to see and walk the genuine places that Messiah Yeshua walked and ministered, or if you spend most of your time in a huge tour bus being driven from fake sites to the overpriced tourist souvenir shop run by your bus driver's cousin and then back to your hermetically sealed Tourist Hotel.

1. Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum leads 15 day study tours that are not 'Tour Bus Comfy', but Mini-Van expeditions. He is a Jewish believer in Jesus, has lived in Israel, speaks Hebrew, and his Masters Degree is in the Biblical Geography of the Land of Israel. He knows the same 'back roads' the ancient Jewish prophets traveled! It's not for everyone, but if you're up to a real study tour with long days, this is it. Contact Dr. Fruchtenbaum at  http://www.ariel.org/ 

2. Arlie Francis is a solid Bible Teacher who regularly conducts a quality study tour of Israel. You will see all the Biblical sites and have your faith built up!  Contact Arlie at:  www.discipledaily.org/Disciple_Daily/Tours.html
