In the 21st century we have the ability to know what is going on almost anywhere in the world, sometimes in a matter of seconds. But in ancient times, it wasn’t so easy. As empires would rise and fall, people in other lands would often find out by their own type of newspaper: coins! Just as today, ancient coins had faces on them but they weren’t of former leaders but new ones. We welcome our own Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry church ministries representative, Peter Colón to the program this week to talk about the importance of ancient coins, especially three that were used during Bible times. Peter will give us background on three very important coins that are referenced in the Bible. When we learn more about the culture of the day in Bible times, this gives a deeper look into why certain things were said and referenced. If you would like to see the coins Peter references you can see them below, or you can visit https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/coins-from-judaea-capta to find out more.
