The Byzantine Jesus
The word “Byzantine” has many definitions. It is often used as an historical term in reference to the Byzantine Empire, which was the direct continuation of the Roman Empire during late antiquity and the Middle Ages, centered in the capital of Constantinople. The word itself also has a cultural context. Byzantine culture is characterized by conservative beliefs, hospitality, religious action and ideology, zeal, and family orientation, amongst other valued traits. The Byzantine era is unique in that it encompasses religion, culture, language, and politics — and these are considered inseparable in Middle Eastern thought. The Byzantine culture, both past and present, is very similar to the culture in which the poetry, history, and prophecy of the Bible occurs, and since we see clearly Christ in all of the books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, the title of this book discusses Jesus as seen from this perspective. Therefore, the purpose of this book is to uncover the culture of the Byzantine era as it applies to the Scriptures, in order to help the reader understand the Middle Eastern backdrop in which the Bible verses were written.
