BiBloS Issue 3


BiBloS 03-March 2016 211:300 v. small

This, our third offering, is finally ready for your consumption. Again, we hope you find this to be as useful and as encouraging as those that have gone before. If you missed either of the previous issues, then you should able to find them on our web site. You may download it now by clicking on the cover image to the right.

You will again find an assortment of articles, word studies, reviews and other focus areas. The short articles are intentionally short and provide something of an introduction to the matters raised.

We have not intentionally focused on any particular theme, but a number of articles in this issue address the matter of sin and death in one way or another. Even our archaeological journey, which has continued further south and into the Negev, takes us into an arid land not far from the Dead Sea.

You might find it useful to consult our web site for additional information and a little background to some of the articles, along with some suggestions for further reading.

Don't miss an issueBiBloS is to be published in an online format, three times each year, and is downloadable from our web site.
We certainly welcome any feedback you care to give, and ideas of how we make it better – we just ask that you be gracious! And please do let us know if you might be interested in articles on a particular subject or theme.

Thank you for reading. Please feel free to share it far and wide. And may this be a blessing to us all, that we might be a blessing to the world in which we live.

  3. Big Black Dictionaries

    Over recent years the way many of us use reference books has changed. If I cannot remember whether Thingummy was the father or son of Whatsisname, or how many Ls there should be in Maher-shalal-hash-baz, or how many miles there...
  4. One Who Will Take Our Side

    Can you imagine what it would have been like to be Job? One minute he had been one of the wealthiest men of his area and the next he had lost everything. Then his friends showed up (at least they...
  5. Aquila and Priscilla

    Aquila and his wife Priscilla were Jews and natives of Pontus. Pontus extended along the coast of the Pontus Euxinus Sea, from which the name was derived. It is mentioned three times in the New Testament (Acts 2:9; 18:2; 1 Peter 1:1)....
