The Bible is a history book. The events recorded in it really happened to real, flesh-and-blood people who were not very different from real people who have lived in every age and in every place. Maybe if we understand that a little better, we would read the Bible with more interest.
Miriam Feinberg Vamosh can help us with that. This American-born Israeli writer, translator, and guide has a deep love of her homeland. She has learned much about her Jewish heritage in the Land, and about the course of Israel’s history which have shaped the realities of the present. She is eager to share her learning with others. As she says
My love affair with the Bible and ancient sources, which led to my books and articles, deepened over my many years as a tour educator – and thus, every visitor who ever asked me a question has earned my gratitude.
Miriam’s decades of work have resulted in a number of books which introduce audiences to a wide variety of aspects about the land and people of Israel. This includes her first historical fiction novel, The Scroll. Miriam crafted this story from a real archaeological find from Masada, weaving it into the saga of a family that spans the dramatic decades from the fall of Masada at the end of the Great Jewish War to the Bar Kokhba Revolt in 135 CE.
Come along and join us in our visit with Miriam. You just might learn that life in modern Israel is just as fascinating as Israel’s bigger-than-life biblical history!
