WHEN DAVID Ben-Gurion settled the land of Israel, he was an atheist. Yet, Ben-Gurion understood “the Bible’s power and importance as the central document and the Jewish people’s deed to our land,” says Yaakov Beasley, who has been lecturing on Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) for 20 years.

Beasley wrote the commentary on Prophets for “The Israel Bible,” released this year on Israel Independence Day, and the world’s first Tanakh centered around the land of Israel, its people, and the dynamic relationship between them. Beasley explains that 70 years since the Jewish state’s founding, the Bible has assumed an even more central place in the Israeli narrative.
