The Bat Kol Institute

Bat Kol Institute in Jerusalem: A Post-Vatican II Institute where Christians study the Word of God (Torah) within its Jewish milieu (the Land, the Book and the People). Jesus was and always remained a Jew. Whoever meets Jesus Christ meets Judaism (John Paul II).

(Deut. 5.27).
