Top Highlights

“Luke’s original audience—people who lived in the Roman Empire in the first century—would understand the census as a visible sign of Rome’s power over the provinces. The census in Judea would raise taxes to benefit Rome and impoverish the Jews.” (Volume 11, Number 1, Page 31)

“When Mary says, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May your word to me be fulfilled,’ she is surrendering all of her life to God’s purposes, trusting in his vindication and his sustaining hand.” (Volume 11, Number 1, Page 25)

“Notably, all four women in Jesus’ messianic genealogy were gentiles (non-Jews), and each was morally compromised.” (Volume 11, Number 1, Page 19)

“In the Middle East, a person’s place in the community is their primary source of identity.” (Volume 11, Number 1, Page 24)

“Mary ‘glorifies’ the Lord (a term that means to give honor)” (Volume 11, Number 1, Page 25)

Praise for the Print Edition

. . . a serious, clearly written [publication] that uses biblical scholarship to illuminate but not refute the principal beliefs of evangelical Protestantism. . . . [It] is to Bible studies what Scientific American is to science or Psychology Today to psychology. A thoughtful bridge between the work of scholars and laypersons looking for a deeper understanding of the biblical texts.

—Steve Black
