Be our guest and explore our ABH Topic Library.
The Bible is a fascinating and multilayered document. It is both historical
and spiritual and contains both historical and spiritual content.
At ABH, we believe that the best way to read and understand the
Bible is to study the texts through the eyes of the ancients. By considering
the original languages, times, customs, culture and traditions, people-tribes, places and events, the scriptures can be fully appreciated
and its message becomes excitingly obvious and meaningful.
The topics in our library are based on interesting words, phrases, idioms,
expressions, or ancient terms as found in the Bible. A variety of historical
sources (with references) are used to explain their meanings and how they
can be best understood in the texts in which they are found.
ABH is a non-denomination historical resource.
New content is added regularly to our topic library.
