Gain a clear biblical perspective on the Jewish mission through the Center of Judaic Studies as you prepare for Christian ministry or service. Our program in Jewish Studies instructs undergraduate students and prepares them for graduate studies, Jewish outreach ministries, or an academic career in the field of Judaic studies.
The center also equips churches to make a biblical response to the Jewish people and the modern State of Israel.
The Liberty Biblical Museum is a unique educational collection of authentic biblical-era artifacts. The museum provides you with the historical and cultural background of the Jewish people over a 4,000-year period. Our exhibits, open to faculty, students and the public, give you a firsthand encounter with the ancient past and the facts of the biblical faith. The museum is open the same hours as the Center for Judaic Studies and small groups or classes may schedule tours with our office.
Why Jewish Studies?
Historically, the church has been largely ignorant of Christianity’s Jewish roots. This has resulted in a misunderstanding of the Jewish people and an adversarial relationship with them. Training in Jewish studies will enable you to impact your world academically, spiritually, and politically with a biblical and balanced worldview of Israel and the Jewish people. Details >>
Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, a Jewish believer in Jesus, author, scholar and the president of Ariel Ministries, will share his testimony of how he came to faith in Jesus.
Join us on a journey through the lands of the Bible. Study history, archaeology, geography, religion, and culture under the expertise of Dr. Randall Price.
“Our goal is to equip students academically and spiritually to serve the Lord in personal and professional ministry with an understanding of God’s plan for Israel and with an awareness of Christianity’s historical relationship and indebtedness to the Jewish people.”
- Dr. Randall Price, Executive Director
