The Complete Jewish Study Bible

Posted in Christian Life, and Reviews

When sitting down to study scripture, it is important to understand the culture and customs during the time period when the Bible was originally written. As I read more in this Jewish Study Bible, I realize that my education in Jewish history and customs is lacking. I have studied some Jewish history and a minimal amount of Hebrew, but I’ve never really dug into it like I wanted. This study Bible is a nice starting point for those studies.

prAna sent me the Mantra pant and Ravena top for the purpose of writing this post. As soon as we had a break in the high summer temperatures, we knew that it was time to hit the trails and the boulders. D had a long weekend thanks to Labor Day, so while we did have some work that had to get done, our main focus was having some fun in the park. We decided that we’d split our time between climbing at the gym and hiking and climbing in the park. We’re fortunate to live in an area that is rich in…
