[The Bible is an “Eastern” book. It was written many years ago in the “East” which today we refer to as “The Middle East.” As such, there are many customs and idioms that are not familiar to the “Western” mind.]
An “Eastern Eye” Podcast!
Today is what is referred to as Good Friday. This time of year many remember the sufferings of Jesus. And of course this Sunday is Easter, which some call, “Resurrection Sunday,” as we remember Jesus Christ being raised from the dead to die no more.
If you haven’t read the article I posted this past Wednesday, The Greatest Lie Ever Told, you ought to read it. It has some great information about the resurrection. In this short podcast (7:43) I wanted to reiterate a very unique point from that article. It is a very important point that almost no one mentions.
Since it involves the culture of Bible times, I have placed this post here in the Eastern Eye category.
Have a joyous weekend!

There are a number of books that you can read to get insight on customs, manners, idioms and meanings from the Eastern culture in which the Bible was written. The best I know of were written by Bishop K. C. Pillai I have had the pleasure of listening to many recorded teaching by him.
He wrote three books, and they are hard to find, and are usually over priced. But, if you want to you can check this link to see what Amazon has to offer. Light Through an Eastern Window
Another great resource that I have used for years is a book called, “Manners and Customs of the Bible,” by James Freeman. Mine was printed in 1972 and I know they have newer additions. For the newest edition, just click the link and it will take you to Amazon. The New Manners and Customs of the Bible (Pure Gold Classics)
