Smartphones Have the Power to Make the Bible Come Alive

"Angels Ascending from the Land of Israel" in collection of Israel Museum, Jerusalem

“He had a vision in a dream. A ladder was standing on the ground, its top reaching up towards heaven as Divine angels were going up and down on it.” (Genesis 28:12)
This biblical passage about Jacob’s dream inspired artist Mel Alexenberg to create the serigraph “Angels Ascending from the Land of Israel” that is in the collection of the Israel Museum.  He created this artwork at the museum’s affiliated graphics center in Jerusalem.

It shows digitized Rembrandt angels ascending from a NASA satellite image of Israel based upon the biblical commentary that the angels in Jacob’s dream go up from the Land of Israel and go down throughout the world. This serigraph morphed into the cover of Prof. Alexenberg's book Through a Bible Lens: Biblical Insights for Smartphone Photography and Social Media with the angels emerging from the satellite image of Israel displayed on a smartphone screen.
Smartphones have the power to make the biblical account of Jacob’s dream become a digital age reality by uploading cyberangels in Israel into "The Cloud" (network of all networks) and inviting people everywhere to download them.

Through a Bible Lens is available at Amazon and most other Internet booksellers
