Three Jewish scholars are participating in a nine-month, interfaith television initiative to teach Italians more about the Bible.

Since the beginning of October, Italian state-run television has been broadcasting a six-minute program, “Know the Bible,” from Monday to Friday morning. Each program features a Bible verse with commentary by a panel of Jewish, Catholic and Protestant experts.
