What do we know about the people we read about in the Bible?
We know some of their names, sometimes part of their stories, their heroic acts, their strengths, their failures, their genealogies, their legacies.
We think about them with a 20-20 hindsight vision, like we could have done better. Or like they were so disadvantaged – like, what’s a world without electricity? How did they survive without cars? Bath tubs? Without the internet? With smart phones? Without modern conveniences and technologies?
We really know very little about the “Bible People”. For starters, what did they look like? Yes, some of what we know about them are just in our imagination, projecting our current realities unto theirs.We often forget they were real humans like us.
The Bible is full of dotted lines, and many tiny puzzles which when joined together, we see the Big Picture, and we realize that everything is connected.
Real Bible People tells the stories, stories of these individuals, and groups, and places, and events found on the pages of the Bible.
So, welcome to Real Bible People.
