We are happy to share with you an article from Tablet! The Hebrew Bible’s Christian Students.
When Knesset member Yehuda Glick founded the Lobby for Encouraging the Study of the Bible, his aim was to build support for expanding the Jewish public’s study of this book. But the organization recently found itself co-sponsoring a joint Christian-Jewish Bible study session in the Knesset in honor of Yom Yerushalayim—Jerusalem Day, the day marking Israel’s victory and its subsequent taking over all of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War.
“Here we are, Jews and non-Jews studying together in Jerusalem,” Glick said in his opening remarks at the session.
Someone in the audience yelled, “Hallelujah.”
“Hallelujah, that’s the word,” Glick responded with a smile on his face. “Let’s send a text message to Elijah and tell him the bones are not dry anymore,” referring to a passage from the Book of Ezekiel.
