...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The Tree of Life Bible Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that began in 2008 with the goal of gathering over 60 Messianic Jewish and Christian scholars to create a new Biblical text called the Tree of Life Version - TLV. The Messianic Jewish Family Bible Society has now expanded their mission to: -Reach out with God's Word -Safeguard God's Word -Gather Families Around God's Word


What are your strategies for making this happen?

We make the original language and culture of the Bible, and its salvation message, accessible through translation, art, and teaching.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

Since our inception: a hope for a children's Bible became a dream for a family Bible, one translator multiplied into 32 scholars, a $5000 check gave seed to $850,000 in donations, a single translation became a collaborative work, the Greek sentence structure was restored to Hebrew sentence structure, faith turned into a verb instead of a noun, salvation became Yeshua, and peace became shalom. Only God could have orchestrated this marvelous work. We are humbled that God would again call His people Israel to care and preserve His Holy Scriptures for yet another generation. We are honored to carry on the work of our forefathers and trust fully in God's eternal hope of salvation, Messiah Yeshua.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

We believe the Presence of God can be cultivated in every home through worship, prayer and with reading of the Bible as a family- the Bible now crosses multiple devices. The Bible provides practical tools to teach families how to develop an environment- a sacred place- for God to open hearts, heal souls and rekindle our family's devotion to the God of Israel and to the Body of Messiah. The MJFB will provide multi-media programs to encourage and train up families in these Biblical tools and principles.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

The Tree of Life Version (Genesis - Revelation) is now available as a free download from YouVersion.com, BibleGateway, Pocket Bible, eSword, and many others. You can also find our translation on most presentation software packages. We have also created multiple tools for Bible learning such as calendars, starter kits, planners, devotional curriculum, podcasts, audio readings and more! Additionally, we launched the TLV Journey Bible App in 2018 to provide a multimedia platform to facilitate family Bible engagement. Our goals for the future include an expansion of our bible app to include more content, create new Bible editions, fulfill our mandate to create a Children's Bible, and spark a Bible reading revolution throughout the world. Our hope is to see families return to reading the Bible together!
