In the Light of the Menorah: Story of
The aim of this book is to examine the menorah from a variety of perspectives. The eighteen articles appearing here were written by scholars and experts in their fields: some were composed especially for the book, and some were adapted from previously published articles for this purpose. Each article discusses a specific topic, though the list is by no means comprehensive. The articles are brief, but further references are provided for those who wish to learn more on each topic. The book opens with an essay on the selection of the national emblem of the State of Israel. The next group of articles relates to the sources of the menorah's form. This is followed by a discussion of the messianic message inherent in the menorah. A large section deals with the role of the menorah in liturgical contexts and on ritual objects from ancient times through the modern era, including a discussion of the menorah in Christianity. Also included is the story of the menorah in Kabbalah and mysticism, followed by articles on the role of the menorah in contemporary art and applied graphics. The book concludes with a discussion of the relationship between the menorah and the Magen David, a symbol that has accompanied the menorah since the late Middle Ages, sometimes even taking its place.

The Light of the Menorah brings new clarity and understanding to one of the most beautiful golden objects in the ancient Temple. Join author Valerie Moody as she explores fascinating details about the lampstand of light. In a mysterious way, the Menorah at the Temple exalted the light of God. It was related to the light of creation which reduced chaos, brought order to the universe, and established time. It was connected with the pillar of fire in the wilderness. The Menorah also revealed the actual measurable light inside human beings which scientists are only now discovering. The theme of God’s Kingdom is the spiritual lighting of the Menorah. Its light depicts the light of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. When the Menorah disappears from the awareness of His followers, it is a duty to bring it back in some way.

The Israel Bible (Hebrew and English Edition)
The Israel Bible (Hebrew and English
The Israel Bible is the world's first Bible centered around the Land of Israel, the People of Israel, and the dynamic relationship between them. Designed for both Jewish and non-Jewish readers alike, The Israel Bible offers a unique commentary that seeks to explain God's focus on the Land of Israel alongside the original Hebrew text and the New Jewish Publication Society translation. All 929 chapters highlight verses that relate to Israel, including relevant quotes and perspectives from prime ministers, as well as abundant maps, charts, and illustrations. In the 70 years since the modern rebirth of the State of Israel, the Jewish State has been at the forefront of the world's attention. Today, there are countless efforts to vilify the Jewish state. Yet, there is also an ever-expanding movement of biblical Zionists who stand alongside the nation of Israel as an expression of their commitment to God's eternal word. As we seek to understand the clash between these two conflicting ideologies, while seeking to make sense of the modern world s great interest in Israel, the need for The Israel Bible has never been so timely or important.
