We currently offer eight different programs for our live online tours:

1. The Animal World of the Bible

A standalone presentation that surveys a variety of different aspects of the animal kingdom in the Bible. Ideal for community groups with a variety of different audience ages.

2. The Wonderful World of Animals

Exploring the marvels of the natural world, with a particular focus on those creatures which are highlighted in Scripture for their wondrous characteristics.

3. Biblical, Israeli and World Wildlife

The concept and historical context of Biblical zoology – differentiating between animals of the Bible, animals of modern-day Israel, and animals of other parts of the world.

4. Beasts & Behemoths

A presentation on the identities and symbolism of various predators and other animals in Scripture, including lions, hyenas, and more!

5. The Birds

The symbolism of eagles, storks, and other birds in the Bible. The Biblical episode of the quail sheds important light on the nature of miracles in general, and modern zoology in turn sheds much light on this.

6. Reptiles and Creepy Crawlies

A survey of the identities and fascinating natures of the reptiles and small mammals that are listed in the Bible. This presentation also shows how creatures that appear so lowly and mundane can be a source of tremendous inspiration. Featuring lots of live specimens!

7. The Laws of Kosher Creatures

The Biblical laws of kosher vs. non-kosher mammals, birds, eggs, fishes, and insects, reveal fascinating insights into zoology and life in ancient Israel. Featuring astonishing examples from throughout the animal kingdom!

8. Horns, Shells and Shofars

Which horns can be made into shofars, and why? This presentation features the world’s largest collection of shofars from different species. It also discusses other biological artefacts that are relevant to the Bible: seashells, which exhibit stunning diversity of form, texture and color. One of them is the source of the Techelet dye used for the Temple – but which?
