Sabeel Bible study facilitators met in the village of Taybeh

On Friday 10 June, twenty Bible study facilitators from seventeen different communities in the West Bank and East Jerusalem travelled to the village of Taybeh for a one-day trip. The group met with the local clergy, shared their experiences, and encouraged each other. Since 2015, Sabeel has been focused on encouraging women and young adults in the Holy Land to read the Bible and connect it to their own context and destiny. Unfortunately, many people around the world have used the Bible to justify the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and their dispossession. But Sabeel and Palestinian Liberation Theology offers a liberating reading of the Bible as a tool of liberation and inclusivity.
