Product Description

Because the Bible describes a culture very different from that of Western countries today, what it says is sometimes puzzling to modern readers. In many cases, however, the ways in which Near Eastern merchants and farmers carry on their daily work have hardly changed over the intervening centuries since the inspired authors wrote. The aim of this interesting volume is to clarify familiar scriptural phrases and texts by explaining some unusual Eastern customs, thereby shedding new light on the unchanging truth of God's word.

Here are fascinating insights into a number of areas of life in biblical lands yesterday and today--clothing and jewels, feasts, home life, women, peasants, fields, tombs, tents, trades, and much more.

    A BIBLE COMPANION MUST!

    Jesus (Yeshua) was a Hebrew (Jewish by birth); this book reveals many of the idioms and cultural norms of HIS daily life. Only in the light of these cultural understandings can some of the Scriptures be understood correctly.

    This book may reflect some modern ways of life but the middle east ways have changed so little among the desert dwellers that it is still very applicable. So many "churched", western minded people misinterpret scriptures because they do not understand middle eastern ways of life. This book is a must to correct those errors!

    This book has been in my library for many years and I reference it often as I study God's Word. I like to keep one on hand to use as a gift.

    All Christians should read this book! Because our culture is so different than the Near East, we often misunderstand the meaning of some scriptures. A good example is when the woman washed Jesus feet with her tears. She wasnt crying, she was pouring tears from her tear bottle. This book explains the meaning of the tear bottle and what the meaning of this woman's action was. This book helps to open your eyes to a much deeper understanding of scriptures. A MUST read!!!
