I have been reading a book called "The Conquest of Civilization" By James Henry Breasted. Its an older book and very interesting. The author is well known for his excellent chapter on Egypt. I am still currently reading it; and I am on Western Asia: Babyonia. Its talking about the very beginning (of civilization). I have also been reading and studying the Bible at the same time. So much history is happening! It is so amazing to learn all of this! I learned a lot of this in school, but not this detailed...... I also think it is very important to know your geography and history when studying the Bible. This did happen...........! And we didn't just magically acquire the Bible! People lived and breathed in whole different time! I love history!!!!!!! :)
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
