The rich history of the chosen nation of Israel has attracted a lot of people to learn more about it. More than the accounts of events and people presented in the Bible, the miracles that are considered part of their history, and the commands of God listed in the Scriptures, the interest to learn more and delve deeper in the Holy Land is a common desire for those who are believers of God.

In another part of the Scriptures, the Lord also told Him that those people who bless Him will be blessed, while those who cursed Him will be cursed.
