Popular Bible Dictionary
This resource, inspired by El diccionario popular de la Biblia compiled by Juan Rojas, draws its information from Easton’s Bible Dictionary, a public domain work originally produced by Matthew George Easton M.A., D.D., as well as other free online resources.
The Popular Bible Dictionary is just what we need, and with good reason! Many wish to study the Bible, understand it, and become familiar with the names of the people, places and objects it discusses. This work places a wealth of basic information about the Holy Bible within reach.
More than 5,000 names and subjects
are addressed simply and precisely!
