The Byzantine Jesus: A Mosaic of Culture and Context (Hardcover)
The Byzantine culture of the Middle East is a mosaic of colorful and distinct tiles, with the religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam coming together with the ethnicities of several groups, including the Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Aramaic peoples. By studying and understanding this culture, which is the backdrop against which Judaism and Christianity's Scriptures were written, author Dr. Victor Z. Khalil hopes to give readers deeper insight into the Bible. By studying the rich Scriptures within the proper framework, clarity, and illumination can lead to a greater peace and better understanding of the Bible and the God of the Bible.
