Biblical Resources

Many sites and organizations offer free biblical resources. These resources offer an insiders view into life in the biblical era, but they lack the Islamic point of view, as they are focused mainly on the Jewish bible (Torah) and the Christian bible (both old testament and new testament).

To find out more about the Islamic view of biblical time you need to search for resources with Quranic Arab references. You may also be assisted by ancient maps of Syria, the Middle East and the entire Mediterranean Basin.

Further resources include ancient literature and scriptures, as the Middle East was home to some of the world's most ancient civilizations, amongst which are the common ancestors of Judaism, Islam and Christianity – the three Abrahamic religions – all drawing from ancient Semitic religions and sources.
