Incidentally it may be remarked that the mention in the Babylonian story of creation of the allotment of three stars to each of the sections (Mizrata) of the year, shows that not only had the division of the zodiac into 12 equal signs been effected, but that a further step had been taken, namely, the division of each sign into 3 equal parts, later known amongst the Greeks as its "decans," corresponding roughly to the 36 decades of the Egyptian calendar.

The Strong's numbering system is used and cross-referenced in most study tools today.

The workbook is divided into two main parts: the first is a brief look at the physical attributes of all Bible lands in seven lessons, while the second (which contains the rest of the lessons) correlates the history and geography.

The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon (BDB - look for the unabridged or enhanced editions) has been a long-time standard, but it has weaknesses. Primary, Intermediate, and Advanced student pages include comprehension activities, more advanced memory work, map and timeline work (using the Wall Maps/Time Line packet), activities for interacting with Bible stories, and Bible lesson application. Britnell writes of gazetteers in Ming China, "by the sixteenth century, for a county or monastery not to have a gazetteer was regarded as evidence that the place was inconsequential". [44] While working in the Department of Arms, the Tang dynasty cartographer Jia Dan (730–805) and his colleagues would acquire information from foreign envoys about their respective homelands, and from these interrogations would produce maps supplemented by textual information. [45] Even within China, ethnographic information on ethnic minorities of non- Han peoples were often described in the local histories and gazetteers of provinces such as Guizhou during the Ming and Qing dynasties. [46] As the Qing dynasty pushed further with its troops and government authorities into areas of Guizhou that were uninhabited and not administered by the Qing government, the official gazetteers of the region would be revised to include the newly drawn-up districts and non-Han ethnic groups (mostly Miao peoples ) therein. [46] While the late Ming dynasty officials who compiled the information on the ethnic groups of Guizhou offered scanty details about them in their gazetteers (perhaps due to their lack of contact with these peoples), the later Qing dynasty gazetteers often provided a much more comprehensive analysis. [47] By 1673 the Guizhou gazetteers featured different written entries for the various Miao peoples of the region. [47] Historian Laura Holsteter writes on the woodblock print illustrations of Miao peoples in the Guizhou gazeteer, stating "the 1692 version of the Kangxi era gazetteer show a refinement in the quality of the illustrations by comparison to 1673". [48] Historian Timothy Brook states that Ming dynasty gazetteers demonstrate a shift in the attitudes of Chinese gentry towards the traditionally lower merchant class. [49] As time went on, the gentry solicited funds from merchants to build and repair schools, print scholarly books, build Chinese pagodas on auspicious sites, and other things that were needed by the gentry and scholar-officials in order to succeed. [49] Hence, the gentry figures composing the gazetteers in the latter half of the Ming period spoke favorably of merchants, whereas before they were rarely mentioned. [49] Brook and other modern sinologist historians also examine and consult the local Ming gazetteers to compare population info with the contemporary central government records, which often provided dubious population figures that did not reflect the actually larger population size of China during the time. [50] Although better known for his work on the Gujin Tushu Jicheng encyclopedia, the early-to-mid Qing scholar Jiang Tingxi aided other scholars in the compilation of the "Daqing Yitongzhi" ('Gazetteer of the Qing Empire'). [51] This was provided with a preface in 1744 (more than a decade after Jiang's death), revised in 1764, and reprinted in 1849. [51] The Italian Jesuit Matteo Ricci created the first comprehensive world map in the Chinese language in the early 17th century, [52] while comprehensive world gazetteers were later tanslated into Chinese by Europeans.

In Han dynasty (202 BC–220 AD) China, the Yuejue Shu (越絕書) written in 52 AD is considered by modern sinologists and historians to be the prototype of the gazetteer ( Chinese: difangzhi), as it contained essays on a wide variety of subjects including changes in territorial division, the founding of cities, local products, and customs. [25] However, the first gazetteer proper is considered to be the Chronicles of Huayang by Chang Qu 常璩. Take the challenge to build the foundation of your life on the Word of God.

A. (Strong's is used for the following study explaining the use of a concordance.) A concordance is helpful in three ways: 1. I find myself always wishing he went into more depth. How have the two groups arrived at such different conclusions? A Bible dictionary will explain who they are so you’re not left clueless about their role and purpose in the Bible. Barry Beitzel If you want a Bible that mimimizes the use of often biased notes, but still provides a wealth of information, my personal recommendation would be one of the Thompson Chain Reference Bibles from Kirkbride: If you decide to use a Thompson Chain-Reference Bible, go with the NKJV, as it is the only one of the Thompson's that has all the chains completed.

Many higher critics hold that some or all of the books of the Bible were not written by the men that the books claim as authors, that the books were not written when they claim to be written, and that they were often not unified books but composed of several documents pieced together. ‎Today some orthodox scholars use the term higher criticism in a somewhat different sense. You can branch out to the Old Testament later in your readings. The more we do something then the more familiar we are with it.

We are familiar with various health information regarding eating right and exercising. So, I've put together a list of some of my favorite resources. I use all of these resources and find them very helpful. In this step, you are not trying to find out the meaning of the text for yourself. Text first, original audience second, our perspective last. Having the discussion about who actually wrote the book of Hebrews is thus fundamentally different than stating that Deuteronomy is a fake that was made up 600 years later.
