History and foreign languages are my favorite academic subjects.  I love history and how it illuminates scripture passages.  We cannot understand the Bible without history.   Along with a study of the original Greek or Hebrew texts,  history is the key to understanding the scripture passages used to teach holiness "standards".  In other words, a scholarly approach.  It is imperative to study these scriptures in their historical and cultural context, rather than attempting to interpret them literally, almost word-for-word, within a modern day church setting.  The antiquity of the texts, itself, is sacred.   If you are interested in studied and researched interpretations of the scriptures used to teach "standards", WELCOME.
