The Virtual Bible - Abraham's Journey
The Virtual Bible
From The Publisher:
Abraham's Journey is an interactive CD-ROM recreation of biblical Megiddo/Armageddon from the time period of Abraham (Middle Bronze Age). Reconstructions include 3D animations of the temple complex, gate, palace, and residence. You will trace the steps of Abraham via helicopter video from the north of Israel down to Beersheba as well as the site of Megiddo as it is viewed today.
The Virtual Bible has combined the talents of some of today's foremost biblical scholars and archaeologists with highly skilled animators to create educational and realistic reconstructions of biblical stories. These interactive CDs give you the capability of viewing how people lived in biblical times by walking through the ancient sites and picking up the artifacts from the time period. All the materials are reconstructed with the latest archaeological information. This is combined with helicopter video to emphasize the geography of land and trace the movements of the biblical stories. When merged together, they create a powerful educational tool for biblical studies for classroom instruction in your church, synagogue, or private use.
"This use of virtual reality enhances our understanding of the Bible as it provides us our first experience with a new technology that can bring the world of the Bible to life."
—Dr. Thomas R. W. Longstaff, Director, Jewish Studies, Colby College.

—James K. Hoffmeier Professor of Old Testament & Near Eastern Archaeology Trinity International University
