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.
