Why Is THAT in the Bible? By Eric J. Bargerhuff from Bethany House Publishing.The Bible Passages You've Always Wondered about-Explained What should we make of the Bible story about a talking donkey? What about the passage in Joshua where the sun and moon stood still? Should biblical practices like women wearing head coverings still be followed today? The Bible serves as the foundation for all of Christian life, crossing time and transcending cultures, yet many passages are perplexing.
Providing fascinating historical and scriptural
insights, Eric J. Bargerhuff demystifies forty Bible verses and stories.
Ranging from strange accounts, such as bears mauling forty-two boys (2 Kings
2), to hard-to-accept statements, such as Jesus saying we must hate our
families in order to be his disciples (Luke 14), you will learn the context of
each passage and how it applies to us today. Other fascinating accounts include:
· The Finger on the Wall
· "Lead Us Not into Temptation"
· Jeremiah's Linen Underwear
· "No One Knows the Day or the Hour"
· The Battle for Moses' Body
· Death at Communion
In all, this book will help you be more confident about interpreting all of God's Word accurately.
My Opinion: Before reading this book I saw the bear mauling forty-two boys and thought what a morbid thing to look at the bible to read but I looked at it and saw where it came from and who it came from and cursed them in the name of the LORD and learning about the times back then was interesting.
