BIBLE BACKGROUND OF THE NEW TESTAMENTParables, Metaphors, Similes, Gestures and Attitude
This book is written specifically for the churchgoer, which means you do not need to know Greek, technical terms are defined, and many unfamiliar words have footnotes with background information. The author does not assume you are familiar with these subjects. Therefore, while easy to understand, it is deep enough for seminary students as well.
BIBLE BACKGROUND OF THE NEW TESTAMENT will cover the meaning behind hundreds of Parables, Metaphors, Similes, Gestures and Attitudes, giving the Christian an opportunity at peering into the life & times of the New Testament world.
What is conveyed in kneeling, bowing, prostrating, covering the head, removing one's sandals, pouring water on another's hands, and the like? What did Jesus mean by the hidden treasure parable, the mustard grain parable, the Good Samaritan parable, and the rest? What is a metaphor, a simile, how do they differ, and how are they to be interpreted? How are we to understand the figurative use of body parts, such as being 'in, into, or under one's hand'? What does it mean by 'dropping the hands down,' or 'opening up the hand,' 'life of your hand'? What is meant by being in "want of heart"? What is meant by being 'halfhearted' or 'double hearted'? BIBLE BACKGROUND OF THE NEW TESTAMENT will disclose the meaning behind these, as well as hundreds more, looking at over 1,500 Scriptures, as well as a number of Bible translations.
