Orientalisms (by Verse)


                     OLD TESTAMENT                                           THE GOSPELS                                            NEW TESTAMENT 


When we consider the “light through an Eastern Window” we must always remember that the Bible is an Eastern book, written by men who spoke an Eastern language and used words expressing Eastern customs. Many of the Eastern phrases used as figures of speech are interpreted literally in the West and that to our own hurt. Doing this has caused great confusion and much harm to the work of God.
