Welcome to KEEPERS' Israel Collection!  I'm glad you stopped to take a look.  There will be more than 1,000 photos in this category! I've been to Israel four times so far, and each visit was a great learning experience to actually see and travel to the places that are mentioned in the Bible and meet the people who live in the Land today! One of those adventures lasted more than a year, living in Jerusalem, studying Hebrew, and experiencing the seasons and holidays, (also the Gulf War, air raid sirens, incoming Scud missles and all!) ... In Israel, everywhere you go and everything you see brings to mind favorite Scripture verses and will make your understanding of certain biblical passages so much clearer. Throughout these Israel pages, I've noted Scripture verses that mention the locations in the photos, and it is my heart's desire that you will use this web site again and again to aid you in your Bible study to help you understand the geography of the Holy Land and picture in your mind the actual places where biblical events took place. Whether or not you've had an opportunity to visit Eretz Israel, I hope that the photos and descriptions I have to offer will help make God's Word "come alive" for you. Please give the photos some time to load, and in the meantime, browse through the descriptions and Scripture verses and be blessed!

Scripture Pictures:
These first 33 are available as framed "Scripture Pictures." You may also order any of these photos as unframed enlargements, or license them as digital images for publications. I hope you'll find a lovely photo that you'd like for yourself or to give as gifts to Christian, Jewish, or Messianic friends.
