An Invitation

Readers of JUST GENESIS are invited to join the Facebook group The Bible and Anthropology where we discuss many of the topics found here in great detail. This is more interactive than a blog can be.

The Bible and Anthropology is an international forum that helps the members gain a better understanding of the Bible through guided application of cultural anthropology. We investigate the biblical texts for anthropologically significant information that clarifies the context of biblical peoples. 

Members recommend topics for discussion, pose questions, post news, make thoughtful comments and observations, and provide links to pertinent material.

Biblical Anthropology is a science. It requires that assertions be backed up with hard data. Here we investigate the biblical texts, seeking anthropologically significant data. We identify the data and explore correlations to the findings of other sciences: linguistics, DNA studies, recorded climate changes, archaeology, migration studies, etc.

This new branch of anthropology is especially relevant to Christians as it helps us to understand the antecedents of our Messianic Faith and reinforced our conviction that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah.
