The Familiarity of New Testament Writers |

TBC Staff

Throughout the Bible, one of the clearest evidences that the writers understood the background of the times is that they referred to the customs of various officials with great precision. This sort of accuracy is seen in Luke, for he refers to different local officers by their exact titles... Obviously, he knew a great deal about local buildings and areas, referring confidently and yet casually to the marketplace at Philippi.
