I've not been feeling real great these last few days and almost didn't get this new list of words up, but I seem to have gained my 2nd wind tonight-- and probably last :). So here goes, the new words for this week are:
We find this reference in Matthew 27:7-10, "And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me."
"Potter's field" is the name that was given to the piece of ground which was bought with the money given to Judas.
This word is found in Matthew 23:5, "But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments."
Phylacteries consisted of strips of parchment which had inscribed on them text from Exodus 13:1-10, Exodus 11-16, Deutoronomy 6:4-9 and Deutoronomy 11:18-21. They were enclosed in a leather case which had one side inscribed the Hebrew letter shin. The case was fastened by straps to the forehead just between the eyes. By "making broad the phylacteries" they were enlarging the case so it would be conspicuous.
Have a great weekend!
