GlossaHouse Illustrated Biblical Texts (GIBT) present the books of the Bible in their original languages, embedded scene by scene in the context of Keith Neely’s evocative, full-color illustrations. These innovative resources will accelerate your comprehension by helping you distinguish narrative from dialogue at a glance. The illustrations provide visual cues for action, tension, and emotion, inviting an immersive reading experience in the ancient languages. While the books are supported by an original English translation on each page, the graphic approach of the GIBT series pushes against a tendency in biblical language learning to make translation the end goal. On the contrary, we hope that these books will help you begin to think in the biblical language—to hear echoes of the authors’ own voices, thick with the accents of their ancient dialects. Whether you are a beginning student of biblical languages, or an accomplished scholar, our hope is that this fresh presentation of the ancient texts will ignite your imagination and turn the world of these words into an expansive, multicolored landscape in your mind’s eye.
