In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000

The Bible has been called the best-selling book of all time, though the term itself comes from biblia, Greek for a collection of books. The Bible developed gradually, over many centuries, as the result of cultural interaction and exchange among many different societies. Over time, some texts were accepted as part of the canon of belief, while others were excluded as apocryphal and heretical. Out of this rich diversity and cultural complexity emerged the modern Bible. In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000 tells the story of this formative period. From fragile fragments of papyrus and humble early parchment codices to resplendent illuminated manuscripts, In the Beginning presents the physical evidence of the earliest versions of both Bible and book. The quest to discover ancient biblical manuscripts The Christian concept of the Bible was established long before many of its earliest materials were discovered in the Middle East.

how to read the bible [with amazement] : 18 Flares Google+ 4 Facebook 5 Twitter 4 Pin It Share 2 2 Buffer 3 Email -- Email to a friend 18 Flares × There was likely a period after Paul’s conversion to Christianity when he spent considerable time studying the Scriptures (The Law and the Prophets). As a Pharisee, he would have had an extremely high level of knowledge regarding the Word of God. Now being full of revelation, wisdom, and the Holy Spirit… I imagine that reading the Scriptures would have been a whole new experience for Paul. There are few things as exciting as reading the Bible with a fresh set of eyes. That’s exactly what Michael Card has done with his latest project Luke: The Gospel of Amazement (Biblical Imagination Series, IVP). Card challenges the reader to take the same approach that he’d been taught: “We must learn to read the Bible at the level of the informed imagination.” The imagination part of this statement gives the reader permission to think through what is said, as well as what is not said.
