Illustrated Bible Dictionary

Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., 2006 M10 1 - 724 pages
"The fruit of many years of loving labor," Scottish Presbyterian minister Matthew George Easton's Illustrated Bible Dictionary has become a classic reference for those studying the Bible. Originally published in 1897, three years after Easton's death, it contains almost 4,000 entries and dozens of illustrations and maps. Readers will find definitions of terms ranging from Alpha to Zuzims. In between they'll find entries both obscure and common, such as Emims (a warlike tribe of giants), Hagar (Sarah's handmaid), immortality, meekness, Pentecost (the feast of harvest), seventy weeks (a prophetic period of time before the coming of the Messiah), sling (what David used to slay the giant), and Zorah (Samson's birthplace).
