This month in Ink we’re going back two thousand years to look at life at the inflection point between the Old and the New Testaments. First Dr Peter J Williams fills in the blanks about what was happening politically, culturally and religiously between Persian rule in Nehemiah and the appearance of the Romans in Matthew. Then Dr John D Meade looks at the journey of the Bible, asking how similar the Scripture in Jesus’s hands would have been to the modern editions in ours.
We also catch up with Dr Myrto Theocharous, who works with sex-trafficked and refugee women, when she’s not teaching Old Testament at the Greek Bible College in Athens. She explains how the call in Deuteronomy to care for the vulnerable was one she couldn’t ignore.
If you enjoy finding out more about Bible languages, Bible manuscripts and the ancient world, please join us as we explore these issues further in the very first Tyndale House podcast. Entitled Trusting the Bible, the podcast is a joint venture with Bible Society, and you can find out more on pages 18-19.
Our goal for every issue of Ink magazine is to give evidence-based answers to real questions that people are asking about the Bible. If there’s something you'd love to read about in an issue of Ink let us know. You can email us at email@example.com
