Bible Insights

Since 2003, our Bible Forum column has provided readers with valuable Bible scholarship and historical context. Starting with this issue, the Journal is revamping the column to feature shorter insights and ideas from contributors’ individual Bible study. This approach will continue to shed new light on familiar (or not so familiar) Bible stories, history, and scholarship. But we also hope it will inspire more readers to dig deeper into their own study of the Bible and Christian Science—and to offer their insights and discoveries for publication.
