Articles address the reality behind each unfamiliar or misunderstood image. Contributors also explain how the biblical authors have employed that image in various passages of Scripture.


Why then do traditional Bible dictionaries and reference works offer so little help to explorers of the Bible's galaxy of verbal pictures? They excel in describing the climate, borders and location of Galilee or Sinai. But they are often blind to the artistic expressions and deaf to the musical meanings that echo from within the world of the biblical text.


This unique dictionary explores the dazzling variety in which the Word of God comes dressed in clothes of everyday life. It traces the trail of images from Eden to the New Jerusalem. It captures the plotted patterns of biblical narrative. It surveys the imaged texture of each book of the Bible. In short, The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is an inviting, enlightening and indispensable companion to the reading, study, contemplation and enjoyment of the Bible.

If one looked up the word "image" in a Hebrew dictionary, it would not be very satisfying, being a typical textbook definition. It merely means "a shadowing forth, a phantom, a sketch, an outline." It gives the impression of a mere shape, a stickman. However, it has another, more interesting definition that means "whatever makes a man remarkable or procures respect."


With the continued concern about swine flu, I have been praying more deeply. I felt led to look up the word "virus" in the dictionary. One definition surprised me: venom. This immediately led my thought to the biblical image of the serpent, which appears famously in Genesis, tempting Eve, and in Revelation as "the great red dragon."


The wisdom of the Bible may seem irrelevant to modern calamities, in which solutions are expected to come only from material means. But biblical messages of truth remain potent antidotes to the venom of today's serpents. And understanding them will bring healing and abundant proof of God's tender, constant care for His creation. 041b061a72
