At a given time there are up to 15 projects at work in HaGefen. Obviously, some are smaller and shorter in their life span than others, and their completion depends on the funding as well.

Projects listed below are at a different stage of production. You are invited to browse these projects, which we believe the Lord has guided us to produce for the advancement of the Kingdom among Jewish Israelis. Your support of each of these projects can have an impact on the lives of the people here in Israel.

The Testimony (Hebrew)

Volume 6, New Testament

 The Testimony

The translation of the Old Testament was completed in 2013. After some thought and prayer, HaGefen team decided to continue the project and to translate the New Testament from Greek into contemporary Hebrew for youth. It would be wrong not to complete the whole Scriptures, although other translations of the New Testament to Hebrew already exist and their language is suitable for reading also for younger generations. Also, the colorful illustrations rich in historical content and visual information are a unique feature of “The Testimony” series, which are found in no other Bible and help young minds to capture the truth visually.

Christianity Through the Centuries, by Earle E. Carins (Hebrew)

images

HaGefen and The Israeli College of Bible have incorporated in the vision of publishing high-quality academic material about the history of the Christian church. The body of Christ in Israel is very young (first-third generations) and every day there are new Jewish converts coming to know Christ. Yet there is no Christian tradition or Christian history knowledge to the young Jewish community of believers. In order to connect the body of Christ in Israel to its Christian heritage, we are looking forward to publishing this book.

Earle E. Cairns, professor emeritus of Wheaton College, is a graduate of Presbyterian Theological Seminary at Omaha (Th.B.) and the University of Nebraska (Ph.D.) not only explains how doctrines, movements, and institutions developed but also examines “the impact of Christianity on its times and to the mark of the times on Christianity.”

The One and Only Comfort (Hebrew, second edition)

One and Only Comfort

The Heidelberg Catechism, written in 1563 was conceived originally as a teaching instrument to promote religious unity in the Palatinate, the catechism soon became a guide for preaching as well. It is a remarkably warm-hearted and personalized confession of faith, eminently deserving of its popularity among Reformed churches to the present day. The one and Only Comfort is a modern application of the Heidelberg Catechism, in Hebrew.

The Holiness of God, by RC Sproul (Russian)

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

Knowing Christ, by Mark Jones (Hebrew and Russian)

The Puritans loved the Bible and dug into it in depth. Also, they loved the Lord Jesus, who is, of course, the Bible’s focal figure; they circled round him, centered on him, studied minutely all that Scripture had to say about him, and constantly, conscientiously, exalted him in their preaching, praises, and prayers. Mark Jones, an established expert on many aspects of Puritan thought, also loves the Bible and its Christ, and the Puritans as expositors of both; and out of this triune love he has written a memorable unpacking of the truth about the Saviour according to the classic Reformed tradition, and the Puritans supremely. It is a book calculated to enrich our twenty-first-century souls and one that it is an honor to introduce.

It is a journey filled with amazing discoveries and delightful surprises, a journey that is sometimes painful but that ends with joy, a journey through which you will learn the real story of this man named Yeshua: the most famous Jew of all time, the Jewish nation’s greatest prophet, the most illustrious rabbi ever, the light of the nations and Israel’s hidden Messiah.

Sexual Detox, by Tim Challies (Hebrew)

In this book, the author is trying to help male readers to reorient his understanding of sex, both in the big picture and in the act itself, according to God’s plan for this great gift. The book helps to detox from all the junk men have seen, all the lies they’ve believed. This is not an easy process. It is rarely a quick process. It involves letting go of old realities and an embrace of a new normal. Whether single or married, such a reset to normal is the only thing that can ever equip men to become a pure, loving, attentive, sacrificial husband.
