What this website is about

The Bible in Its Traditions is a project of the École Biblique et Archéologique Française de Jérusalem, the creators of the Jerusalem Bible.

The goal of this project

We intend to create the most extensive and helpful set of notes for the entire bible, with information of interest both to biblical scholars and casual readers.

Unique Features

The Bible in Its Traditions will present significant differences between different versions of the text of the Bible in the text itself, rather than in footnotes. In addition, the text is accompanied by extensive notes divided into different topics, such as vocabulary, social and cultural milieu, and Jewish and Christian tradition, among others.
