I Never Knew That Was in the Bible: A Resource of Common Expressions and Curious Words from the Bestselling Book of All Time by Martin H. Manser

Money is the root of all evil...or is it? What does prodigal son really mean? In biblical times, would you see a doctor when you were sick? The meanings of many words and phrases contained within the Bible have changed dramatically over time. A host from the Bible is certainly not the same host that you would like serving you dessert at a dinner partyin Biblical times, host referred to an army. Alternatively, many common, everyday expressions have their roots in the Bible. I NEVER KNEW THAT WAS IN THE BIBLE is a wonderful resource to find the origins and intended meanings for all of these curious words and common expressions from the Bible. Black and white cartoon illustrations add wit to sometimes humorous and always fascinating stories behind the words and phrases. Great for Bible readers, literature students, English teachers, writers, and anyone who loves words.
