Excerpt from Biblical Antiquities: A Hand Book for Use in Seminaries, Sabbath Schools, Families and by All Students of the Bible
That branch of biblical science known as antiquities has to do with the peoples among whom _the Bible arose, especially with the Hebrews. In this w... ork the subject is made to refer chie¿y to the social, civil and religious conditions of the Hebrew people in biblical times. The antiquities of other historically related peoples are considered only as far as they shed light on those of the Hebrews or otherwise contribute to a clearer under standing of the Bible.
The advantages of a knowledge of their antiquities to a stu dent of the Scriptures cannot well be overrated. It serves to place him in the position 'of one who lived in the times when they first appeared and in the lands where they were actually written.
My aim has been to present the principal facts of biblical antiquities in the stricter sense, together with some of their moral and religious bearings, and to show their true place and significance in the plan and history of redemption. No attempt has been made to treat largely of the geography or topography, the political or natural history, of the lands of the Bible, each of which themes would require a volume.
