WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

The family: home and haven

From the February 2003 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Galen Goldsmith has a Master of Philosophy in Classical Hebrew exegesis from the Faculty of Oriental Studies at Cambridge University, England. As part of its expanded Bible coverage, the Journal asked her to comment on the role of the family in the community during Bible times and how this outlook would have shaped Jesus' life.
