Certificate in Jewish Context and Culture


At Israel Bible Center the courses are designed for learners of all levels. The certificate program covers a wide variety of carefully selected topics: Interpretation of Biblical Texts and Ancient Jewish Literature, History, Jewish Culture and Customs, Rabbinic Theology, Archeology, Original Languages and the best of modern scholarship in many other areas. The program is highly relevant for anyone seeking to become a responsible and creative interpreter of Sacred Biblical Texts.


The program consists of 24 mini-courses. The study plans offered on our website are flexible, self-paced and videos can be streamed to most mobile devices. Unlike seminary-style studies, the certificate program in Jewish Context and Culture was not created to support any specific institution. The content we offer is best suited for modern Christ-followers of diverse backgrounds who desire to study beyond Christian theological tradition.



Internationally and regionally-recognized accreditation is available only to traditional degree-granting institutions. Israel Bible Center is not a college or a university. Since we offer open enrollment to anyone interested in learning and do not grant formal degrees our certificate program does not qualify for accreditation consideration. As a non-traditional educational institution, we strive to serve learners of all levels regardless of their academic qualifications. And the quality of our materials is backed by the high caliber of scholars and teachers associated with Israel Bible Center. We feel that anyone should be able to enjoy deep university-level biblical education in plain language and at a fraction of the typical cost.
