Learn to read the Bible through the lens of cultural anthropology and you will never read it the same way again. This empirical approach to the biblical texts exposes inaccurate interpretations, clarifies the cultural contexts of biblical populations, and pulls back the veil of time to reveal the roots of the Messianic Faith among Abraham's ancestors.
Reading Scripture through the lens of cultural anthropology is rigorous because no assumption can stand untested, and no assertion can be made without data. If we seek to understand the Bible rather than use the Bible to support an agenda, we will find the approach of Biblical Anthropology helpful.
Biblical anthropology is being discussed at a new Facebook group, The Bible and Anthropology. This international forum shares ideas, insights, discoveries, images, and documents that help the members gain a deeper understanding of the Bible through application of cultural anthropology. Anthropology degrees are not a prerequisite for participation!
Consider joining the group. Share what you experience where you live and how the experience relates to Scripture. Help advance the scientific field of Biblical Anthropology. The objective is to share and learn from each other.
