Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Town Clerk
TOWN CLERK . In Græco-Asiatic cities under the Roman Empire the grammateus (tr. [1] ‘town clerk’) was responsible for the form of decrees presented to the popular assembly. They were first approved by the senate and then sent to the assembly, which formally passed them. At Ephesus ( Acts 19:35 ) the clerk feared that he would have to account to the Roman governor for the irregularly constituted assembly.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Town Clerk,
the title ascribed in our version to the magistrate at Ephesus who appeased the mob in the theatre at the time of the tumult excited by Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen. (Acts 19:35 ) The original service of this class of men was to record the laws and decrees of the state, and to read them in public.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Town Clerk
grammateus . An officer originally appointed to record the laws and decrees of the state, mid to read them in public; but in Asia Minor, under the Roman empire, authorized to preside over popular assemblies and submit questions to their vote, as inscriptions on marbles testify; in short, governors of single cities and districts, and named as such on the coins; sometimes also entitled "chief priests"; a kind of state secretary. The town clerk at, Ephesus appeased the mob gathered by Demetrius the silversmith against the gospel preachers (Acts 19:35-41).
His speech is a model of judiciousness, and perfectly carried his point. Such excitement, he reasons, is undignified in Ephesians, seeing that their devotion to Diana of Ephesus is beyond question. It is unreasonable, since the men apprehended are neither church robbers nor blasphemers, so ye ought to do nothing rashly; if even there were grounds against them, there are legal means of redress open, without resorting to illegal; lastly, we are in danger of being called in question by Roman authority for this uproar (see Proverbs 15:23). Boeckh mentions an Ephesian inscription, No. 2990 C. and H. ii. 80. "Munatius the townn clerk and ruler of Asia" (Asiarch).
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Town-Clerk
The town-clerk of Ephesus (Acts 19:35-41), who displays tact and also points out the illegality of the whole proceedings of the crowd, with the proper means of redress if there be a real grievance, was a typical official of a Greek city with the Athenian type of constitution. In cities like Ephesus, which were the headquarters of a Roman governor, the town-clerk appears to have acted also as a kind of intermediary between the proconsul (with his staff) and the municipal authorities. The Acts narrative is in fact a precious document for the understanding of the town-clerk’s position. With the advent of the Empire the free democratic constitution of most provincial cities was suspended. The assemblies could be held only with the permission of the governor, who was an Imperial official (cf. Acts 19:38-41). No longer could a citizen bring a proposal before the assembly personally, but only through the presiding official. The old council of annually elected citizens remained, as did the old magistracies. These offices were held only by the rich, as no salary was attached to them. The στρατηγοί (see Magistrate, Praetor) and the γραμματεὺς τοῦ δήμου formed the magisterial board of the city. Every measure to be brought before the people must first have had their approval and support. These magistrates seem to have presided over the assembly in rotation. A decree passed by the assembly required the confirmation of the governor before it could become law. The high importance of the town-clerk appears from the fact that his name alone is frequently given as a means of dating a decree, and, if it is his second period of office, inscriptions indicate that in the usual way. An inscription of Branchidae in the same province of Asia as Ephesus (Greek Inscriptions in the British Museum, no. 921) provides the best illustration of the import of this riotous assembly in Ephesus (C. G. Brandis, in Pauly-Wissowa [1] , ii. [2] col. 1551). A citizen of Branchidae in 48 b.c. is celebrated on it as having gone on an embassy to Rome and restored to the people of Branchidae their former assembly and laws. Under the Empire privileges were apt to be taken away from cities if they were abused. This had happened in the case of Branchidae, and only the intervention of a prominent citizen, who took the journey to Rome and doubtless spent a large sum of money, was able to recover their old rights for the populace. So in Ephesus and elsewhere the local officials were most careful to avoid punishment from the Roman authorities on account of assemblies illegally summoned.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Town Clerk
1: γραμματεύς (Strong's #1122 — Noun Masculine — grammateus — gram-mat-yooce' ) "a writer, scribe," is used in Acts 19:35 of a state "clerk," an important official, variously designated, according to inscriptions found in Graeco-Asiatic cities. He was responsible for the form of decrees first approved by the Senate, then sent for approval in the popular assembly, in which he often presided. The decrees having been passed, he sealed them with the public seal in the presence of witnesses. Such an assembly frequently met in the theater. The Roman administration viewed any irregular or unruly assembly as a grave and even capital offense, as tending to strengthen among the people the consciousness of their power and the desire to exercise it. In the circumstances at Ephesus the town clerk feared that he might himself be held responsible for the irregular gathering. See SCRIBE.

In cities like Ephesus, which were the headquarters of a Roman governor, the Town-clerk appears to have acted also as a kind of intermediary between the proconsul (with his staff) and the municipal authorities.

Gerasenes, Gergesenes - The neighbourhood of the Town of Gadara must be pronounced absolutely impossible for the miracle (see Gadara). But as this would not be officially correct, Gadara having been the capital of the country to the south of the Town, it might be better to say that popular usage gave to the whole district on the eastern shore of the Lake the name of the principal Town. (It need scarcely be said that this latter Town is out of the question as the scene of the miracle, being some 30 miles from the Lake). ’ But this reading he objected to, inasmuch as he knew of only one Gerasa, the Town of the Decapolis, which he rightly conceived could not have been the scene of the miracle. He suggested that ‘Gergesenes’ must be the true reading, as he knew of a Town on the eastern shore of the Lake bearing the name Gergesa. ]'>[1] ? There can be here no certainty, but the probability is that Origen was right, and that the true name of the village or Town where the miracle occurred, ‘over against Galilee,’ was Gergesa

Kings - In Scripture many persons are called kings, whom we should rather denominate chiefs or leaders; and many single Towns, or, at most, together with their adjacent villages, are said to have had kings.

Archaeology - When a Town was destroyed, whether by conquest, earthquake, storm or flood, the usual practice for the new generation of builders was simply to level off the ruins and build on top of the flattened rubble and dirt. The result is that in many places today, the site of an ancient Town is covered by a mound (Arabic: tell), which looks like a small tableland
Sargon - They also remarkably illustrate 2 Kings 17:6, that he placed the deported Israelites (in Halah, Habor, the river of Gozan, and at a later time) "in the cities of the Medes"; for Sargon in them states he overran Media and "annexed many Median Towns to Assyria.

Nazarene (2) - As usually understood, ‘Nazarene’ in the first place meant ‘of [1] Nazareth,’ and indeed this explicitly appears in some passages in the Gospels (e. ); but, according to Cheyne, the name Nazareth in its original significance was the designation not of a Town but of a district, and ‘Nazarene’ is primarily equivalent to ‘Galilaean’ (see, further, below, and art. ’]'>[10] doubts whether Nazareth was ‘originally the name of a Town (or village) at all
Libertines - 1, montibus Libystinis), would have been quite suitable for designating the Towns lying westwards from Cyrene, had it been supported by good manuscript authority (cf.

The people leave the Towns and live in lodges and tents among the vineyards (Judges 9:27); sometimes even before the vintage (Song of Solomon 7:11-12)
Ephesus - The history of the Town turns very much on the opposition between the free Greek spirit of progress and the slavish submission of the Oriental population to the goddess.

Galilee - "A circle" or "circuit" around Kedesh Naphtali, in which lay the 20 Towns given by Solomon to Hiram, king of Tyre, in payment for his having conveyed timber from Lebanon to Jerusalem (Joshua 20:7; 1 Kings 9:11).

Samaria - The ruins of the ancient Town are all scattered over the hill, down the sides of which they have rolled
Gath - Because the Hebrew term gath/gat meant “winepress” and since vineyards and winepresses were widespread in the land, a number of Towns in Palestine were named Gath. In addition to Gath, the other Towns of the Philistine city-state system were Ekron, Ashdod, Ashkelon and Gaza (1 Samuel 6:17 ). Based on information from the biblical accounts, Gath was located inland as opposed to the other Philistine Towns which were on or near the coast. We may assume that these Towns were taken by the Philistines at this point. Gath was one of the locations to which the Philistines took the ark (1 Samuel 5:8-9 ) and was the hometown of Goliath (1 Samuel 17:4 ) and Obed-edom (1 Chronicles 13:13 ). Eventually David defeated the Philistines and made Gath an Israelite Town (1 Chronicles 18:1 )

Antioch - The once vast city has shrunk into a small, ignoble, and dirty Town of 6,000 inhabitants, still, however, hearing the name of Antaki (Turkish) or Antakiyah (Arabic).

Founded by the inhabitants of Magnesia, it was made a free Town by the Romans, and a colonia was established there by the emperor Augustus to keep the barbarians of the neighbourhood in check
Bethlehem - —Two Towns of this name are mentioned in the Old Testament. ‘Some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the Scripture said that Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the Town of Bethlehem where David was?’ (John 7:41-42). This Town (the modern Lahm) is situated about 6 miles S. The terraces, as they sweep in graceful curves round the ridge from top to bottom, give to the little Town the appearance of an amphitheatre, and serve to make to the approaching traveller a picture which closer acquaintance does not wholly disappoint. ...

Sheba - The present capital is Sana, a Town of about 20,000 inhabitants, on the southernmost of three great plateaux. Knowing that Joab and Abishai were on his heels, he shut himself up in Abel-beth-maacah (modern Abil ), a Town in the extreme north

Judas the Galilaean - This discrepancy may be due to a confusion of a Galilaean Gamala with the better-known Town of the same name east of Jordan; or to the fact that the activities of Judas were largely confined to Galilee; or to the loose use of the word ‘Galilaean’ to describe a Jew born near Galilee
Nineveh - " He further claims that Assyrian writers do not consider these places to be parts of Nineveh, but distinct and separate cities; that Calah was for a longtime the capital, while Nineveh was a provincial Town; that Dur-sargina was built by Sargon—not at Nineveh, but near Nineveh; and that Scripture similarly distinguishes Calah as a place separate from Nineveh, and so far from it that there was room for a great city between them

Refuge - ...
It is a curious fact, that the North American Indian nations have most of them either a house or Town of refuge, which is a sure asylum to protect a man-slayer, or the unfortunate captive, if they can once enter it. "In almost every Indian nation," says Adair, "there are several peaceable Towns which are called old, beloved, ancient, holy, or white Towns: (white being their fixed emblem of peace, friendship, prosperity, happiness, purity, &c:) they seem to have been formerly Towns of refuge; for it is not in the memory of their oldest people that ever human blood was shed in them, although they often force persons from thence, and put them to death elsewhere

Nero, Claudius Caesar - Whether well founded or not, and whether, supposing it true, the emperor's motive was to clear away the crooked, narrow streets of the old Town in order to rebuild it on a new and regular plan, or whether it was a freak of madness, need not be discussed here. At that time Jews and Christians lived in the same part of the Town and in the same manner
Salim - Going on for some time ‘per vallem Jordanis super ripam fluminis ipsius,’ the traveller sees after a little the Town of the holy prophet Elia, ‘id est Thesbe,’ where his cave is, and also ‘memoria sancti Gethae,’ of whom we read in the Books of the Judges (this is, of course, Jephthah, and not Gad, as has been suggested by Mommert)

Jerusalem - ...
"Jerusalem is a city of contrasts, and differs widely from Damascus, not merely because it is a stone Town in mountains, whilst the latter is a mud city in a plain, but because while in Damascus Moslem religion and Oriental custom are unmixed with any foreign element, in Jerusalem every form of religion, every nationality of East and West, is represented at one time. ...

In 1291, the Town of Acre or Ptolemais was taken and plundered by the sultan of Egypt, and the Christians quite driven out of Syria
Moab - There are manifest and abundant vestiges of its ancient greatness: the whole of the plains are covered with the sites of Towns, on every eminence or spot convenient for the construction of one; and as the land is capable of rich cultivation, there can be no doubt that the country now so deserted once presented a continued picture of plenty and fertility. The frequency, and almost, in many instances, the close vicinity of the sites of the ancient Towns, prove that the population of the country was formerly proportioned to its natural fertility. Their place, together with the adjoining part of Idumea, is characterized, in the map of Volney's Travels, by the ruins of Towns. At Heshban, (Heshbon,) are the ruins of a large ancient Town, together with the remains of a temple, and some edifices. There being no springs on the spot, the Town had two birkets, the largest of which is cut entirely out of the rocky ground, together with many cisterns. Kerek, which neither bears any resemblance in name to any of the cities of Moab which are mentioned as existing in the time of the Israelites, nor possesses any monuments which denote a very remote antiquity, is the only nominal Town in the whole country, and, in the words of Seetzen, who visited it, "in its present ruined state it can only be called a hamlet: and the houses have only one floor. " But the most populous and fertile province in Europe, especially any situated in the interior of a country like Moab, is not covered so thickly with Towns as Moab is plentiful in ruins, deserted and desolate though now it be. When the Towns of Moab existed in their prime, and were at ease; when arrogance, and haughtiness, and pride prevailed among them; the desolation, and total desertion and abandonment of them all, must have utterly surpassed all human conception

City - In Mark 1:38 the word κωμόπολις is used, apparently as a designation of a large unwalled village or Town. Bethlehem and Bethsaida, though generally classed as cities, are spoken of as κῶμαι in John 7:42, Mark 8:23; Mark 8:26, the natural inference from which is that the words ‘city,’ ‘town,’ and ‘village,’ though having, as with us, a technical signification, were occasionally used in a looser and less precise manner

Miletus - The trade of the Maeander Valley was diverted to Ephesus, and, before the coming of the Romans, Miletus, though still called a ‘metropolis’ of Ionia, had become a second-rate commercial Town, which the conquerors did not think it necessary to link up to any important city by one of their great roads

Samaria - Ginea (the modern Jenîn) is given as the most northerly Town (Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) III. The Assyrian conqueror Shalmancser (2 Kings 17:24), or, according to the inscriptions, his successor Sargon, deported from Samaria only the most influential families, which would have been those most likely to give trouble-27,000 persons in all-leaving the humbler classes in the cities, as well as whole minor Towns and villages, undisturbed. 6), was re-created as a Roman colony under Septimius Severus; but when the need for a fortified ‘Watchtower’ was past, the tide of prosperity returned to the ancient Town of Shechem (re-named Neapolis, now Nâblus), and Samaria fell into decay

The Lord of the whole earth made the descending waters stand in a heap very far from their place of crossing, namely, by the Town of Adam, that is beside Zarthan or Zaretan, the moment that the feet of the priests bearing the ark dipped in the water. Conder considers the tells in the Jordan valley and the Esdraelon plain as artificial, and probably the site of the stronghold of ancient Towns; the slopes are steep; good water is always near; they are often where no natural elevation afforded a site for a fortress

Love-Feasts - They had likewise public feasts for certain districts, suppose for a Town or a city, toward which all who could afford it, contributed, in proportion to their different abilities, and all partook of it in common. Townley, of the manner in which the ancient agapae were celebrated, is given by Tertullian, in his "Apology," written in the second century: "Our supper," says he, "which you accuse of luxury, shows its reason in its very name, for it as called αγαπη , that is, love

Ephesus - (Ἔφεσος, a graecized form of a native Anatolian name)...

Desert, Wilderness - The ‘desert’ of the Bible is rather a place without human habitations, devoid of cities or Towns, but by no means devoid of vegetation, at least for a considerable portion of the year. The desert was thus the special home of nomadic or wandering tribes, although the name ‘desert’ or ‘wilderness’ was applied to the uncultivated tracts of land beyond the bounds of the cultivated area near the Towns or villages. If this refers to the road which passed through the desert, there is no difficulty; but the natural application of the words is to Gaza itself, which in the time of Philip was a prosperous Town
Antiochus - Pagan sacrifices were ordered in every Town in Judæa, and every month a search was made to discover whether any Jew possessed a copy of the Law or had circumcised his children
Aenon - It is at least possible that this name was once borne by one of the Towns whose ruins still crown the neighbouring heights.

Philippi - The former is the ordinary term for the supreme board of magistrates in a Greek Town, the latter the popular equivalent of praetores.

Patricius, or Saint Patrick - " We now know that decurions—who were not magistrates but Town councillors rather, and members of the local senates—were found all over the Roman empire to its extremest bounds by the end of the 4th cent. of Ballymena, where a Townland, Ballyligpatrick, the Town of the hollow of Patrick, probably commemorates the position of the farm where he fed Milchu's swine (cf

Golgotha - If we place Golgotha at the traditional site, we make Jerusalem at the time of its greatest prosperity no larger than the poverty-stricken Town of the present day, ‘containing not far from 200 acres, from which 36 acres must be deducted for the Haram area’ (Merrill). ...
The existence of an undoubted Jewish tomb at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the one now called the Tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea, has been cited as evidence that the place was outside the old city wall, ‘but we know from the Talmud that ancient half-forgotten tombs were allowed by the Jews to exist within Jerusalem, and any writer will admit that, in the time of Agrippa at least, this particular tomb was within the circuit of the Town. So that, even if it could be shown that the Sepulchre was outside the second wall, it certainly lay far within the line of the third, and in the midst of this new Town which at the time of the Crucifixion must have been already growing north of the second wall

Antioch - Antakiyeh is now but a meagre Town of 600 inhabitants, though its environs ‘are even at the present day, in spite of all neglect, a blooming garden and one of the most charming spots on earth’ (Mommsen, ii. It was intended as a garrison Town and a centre of Hellenic influence in the heart of Asia Minor, commanding the great trade route between Ephesus and the Cilician Gates
Tarsus - for the purpose of allaying discontent in Tarsus and the neighbouring Town of Mallus (2 Maccabees 4:30 f. The citizens of Greek Towns were divided into ‘tribes’ (φυλαί), each observing its own special religious rites; and, as the individual could not enjoy civic privileges except in his relation to the tribe, there must have been a φυλή of Jews in Tarsus, each member of which could boast of being ‘a Tarsian of Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city’ (Acts 21:39)
Money - A coin of Ephesus mentions its "town clerk"; also another its temple and statue of Diana

Laodicea - ‘Formerly a small Town’ (Strabo, xii
Minister - The sharp shrill cry of 'Acqua! Acqua!' constantly pierces the ear of the wanderer in Venice and other Towns of sultry Italy. In most of the Swiss villages there are streaming fountains by the dozen, and the pure liquid is to be had at every corner; may we yet see the Word of God as abundantly distributed in every Town, village, and hamlet in England
Jew, Jewess - In the Acts of the Apostles we see how the Roman proconsul Gallio (Acts 18:12-17) simply regards Christianity as an insignificant variation of Judaism, and the same view is taken by King Agrippa (Acts 26:32), as well as by the Town-clerk of Ephesus (Acts 19:37)

Paulinus, Bishop of Nola - His father was praefectus praetorio of Gaul, had large possessions in the province in which he lived, and was the founder of the Town of Burgus (Bourg) on the Dordogne, and, as well as his wife, appears to have been a Christian. ...
When Paulinus settled at Nola, the burial-place of Felix, called in the Martyrology of Bede in Pincis or in Pineis, about a mile from the Town, had become the site of four churches ( basilicae ), one built by pope Damasus, and also a chapel. He avoids most of the legends, and shews that the use of bells in churches, an invention credited to him by tradition, is not due to him, nor even to the Town of Nola
Economic Life - ...
Urban Economic Life Local trade expanded beyond the sale of surplus commodities and hand-crafted items as the villages and Towns grew in size. A network of roads gradually developed to accommodate this economic activity and to tie together the villages and Towns throughout the nation. ...

Weights and measures also fitted into the sale of commodities in the Town marketplace
Philip: Deacon And Evangelist - Buell was coming to this Town. Buell's meeting; and when I heard of it, I sat still in entire willingness that God should bless his labours among us as much as He pleased, even though it were to the refreshing of every saint and the conversion of every sinner in the whole Town
Thessalonica - As the peace of the city had been disturbed, the angry passions of the ‘wild beast’ aroused, and a dangerous state of public feeling created, they felt justified in binding over the Apostle’s friends-Jason and others-to keep the peace, and in the circumstances this could be done only if those friends advised the man who was the innocent cause of the disturbance to leave the Town
Egypt - ’ The 355 idols of the temple, to which divine honours were daily paid, fall prostrate, and are broken in pieces; and Affrodosius, the governor of the Town, coming with an army, at sight of the ruined idols worships the child Jesus, and all the people of the city believe in God through Jesus Christ

Samaria - The woman of Samaria and several of her Townsmen (John 4) were the firstfruits gathered into Christ; the fuller harvest followed under Philip the evangelist deacon (Acts 8, compare John 4:35). Then He was coming from Judaea, at a season "four months before the harvest," when the Samaritans could have no suspicion of His having been at Jerusalem for devotion (John 4:8; John 4:35); so the Samaritans treated Him with civility and hospitality, and the disciples bought food in the Samaritan Town without being insulted

Rivers And Waterways in the Bible - To the south at Ephesus, the original Town site on the disease-ridden marshlands was abandoned about A. Though anchorages and small harbors, such as tel Qasile, a Philistine Town, were established along its course and the cedar timbers from Lebanon were floated inland to Aphek for transport to Jerusalem for the construction of Solomon's palace and Temple, the Yarkon historically formed a major barrier to north-south traffic because of the extensive swamps that formed along its course. While limited port facilities existed at coastal Towns such as Joppa, Dor, and Accho, they were hardly adequate to facilitate more than a local fishing fleet and an occasional refuge during a storm for the larger merchant ships that frequented the great harbors established farther to the north along the Phoenician coast

Amphilochius, Archbishop of Iconium - 161) might imply that he was born and lived in Basil's own Town Caesarea
Jeru'Salem - Its elevation is remarkable; occasioned not from its being on the summit of one of the numerous hills of Judea, like most of the Towns and villages, but because it is on the edge of one of the highest table-lands of the country. 9:38, the "broad place of the temple towards the east;" the "street of the house of God," (Ezra 10:9 ) the "street of the gate of Ephraim," (Nehemiah 8:16 ) and the "open place of the first gate toward the east," must have been not "streets," in our sense of the word, so much as the open spaces found in easter Towns round the inside of the gates. Under the Ptolemies and the Seleucidae the Town was prosperous, until Antiochus Epiphanes sacked it, B. The greatest siege that it sustained, however, was at the hands of the Romans under Titus, when it held out nearly five months, and when the Town was completely destroyed, A

Mary - MARY MAGDALENE, so called, it is probable, from Magdala, a Town of Galilee, of which she was a native, or where she had resided during the early part of her life. Townley's Essays, there is one of considerable research on Mary Magdalene; and his conclusion is, that it is probable that the woman mentioned by St
Peraea - ’ His usage may depend on whether he happened at the moment to be referring to the district which was more completely Jewish, or to the whole region, which was governed as one, and which included the Hellenistic Towns of the Decapolis (Ant. The northern parts of Peraea mingled with the region of the Decapolis, where in the Towns there was a vigorous Hellenistic civilization, and apparently north of the Yarmuk the Jewish element of the population was inconsiderable. ...
The immigration of Greek settlers into the country east of Jordan probably began with the presence there of Alexander the Great, and the Towns of Pella (no doubt named from the Macedonian city which was Alexander’s birthplace) and Dion may have been founded by him, as Steph. Besides these Towns, many other powerful Hellenistic communities sprang into existence, and flourished in the midst of a population from which they were separated by their distinctive culture, and, in so far as it was Jewish, by the practice of heathen worship. He took Hippos, Gadara, Pella, Dion, and other important Towns, and extinguished the Greek culture which had flourished in them. ...
Among the Towns of Peraea, Pella has a special interest as having been twice the refuge of the Christians fleeing from Jerusalem, in a. His preaching may have been successful there, and His connexion with the Town such as to suggest it as a refuge to the Christians
Poverty (2) - Nor does the fact that Nazareth was an inconsiderable Town Synagogue (2) - For advanced studies and for technical Jewish training, provision was made in some of the Towns or near the residence of some distinguished Rabbi; but everywhere the elementary school was an inseparable adjunct of the synagogue. If there were several synagogues in a Jewish Town, all were knit together into some kind of organization, under a controlling council which regulated also all the civil affairs of the community. The case of a Town with but a single synagogue was simpler, but not radically distinct
Vespasian - He sprang from an obscure family, his grandfather having been a citizen of the Sabine country-town Reate, who served as a centurion on the side of Pompey against Julius Caesar in the Civil War till the battle of Pharsalus (48 b.

Commerce - Barter and the buying and selling of goods and services held a prominent place in the life of villages and Towns. The narrow confines of the villages and Towns in Palestine, however, restricted commercial activity to shops or booths built into the side of private homes or to the open area around the city gate. ...
For most Palestinian villages and Towns, the gate was a vital place where commercial, judicial, and social activities of all sorts took place. Until the establishment of the monarchy, commercial transactions were governed in each Israelite Town by a local standard of exchange

John the Apostle - Youngest of the twelve, probably of Bethsaida upon the sea of Galilee (John 1:44; Luke 5:10), the Town of their partners Simon and Andrew
John the Baptist - A number of commentators have assumed, without any warrant, that this must have been Hebron, as being a priestly Town in that region. All this, however, is purely conjectural, and it is best to be content to say that John was born in a Town unknown, in the hill country of Judah
Colossians, Epistle to the - Colossae was at this time a small Town of declining importance, overshadowed by Its great neighbours, Laodicea and Hierapolis, some 10 miles down-stream. In all three Towns churches had been founded by the labours of Epaphras (Colossians 1:7; Colossians 4:12-13), himself a native of Colossae (Colossians 4:12), who had met St. ...

Dominicans - In this and some subsequent scenes (the detail of whose enormities, for the sake of brevity, we shall here omit) the impostor talked much to Jetzer of the Dominican order, which he said was peculiarly dear to the Blessed Virgin: he added, that the Virgin knew herself to be conceived in original sin; that the doctors who taught the contrary were in purgatory; that the Blessed Virgin abhorred the Franciscans for making her equal with her Son; and that the Town of Bern would be destroyed for harbouring such plagues within her walls
Gideon - Former judges, Othniel, Ehud, Barak, had been moved by the Spirit of God to their work; but to Gideon alone under a terebinth in Ophrah, a Town belonging to Joash, Jehovah appeared in person to show that the God who had made theophanies to the patriarchs was the same Jehovah, ready to save their descendants if they would return to the covenants. Gideon with ten servants overthrew Baal's altar and Asherah in the night, for he durst not do it in the day through fear of his family and Townsmen
Greece - The highest rewards he can set before the keenest ambitions are no better than if we should now fire our youths’ imagination with the prospect of becoming parish beadles, vestrymen, or at most Town councillors’ (J. Under him the representatives of all the autonomous and non-autonomous Towns of the province of Achaia were allowed to constitute themselves in Athens as united Greece, as the Panhellenes
the Widow With the Two Mites - So much so, that wherever you see a Free Church door open on a Sabbath morning, in Town or country, and the people flocking up to it, you have had a hand in opening that door, and in sustaining that minister, and in preaching the unsearchable riches of Christ to that congregation

Arts - In rural parts milling and baking may indeed have continued to be woman’s work in the house (or tent), but in Towns there had arisen millers and bakers, the latter in particular exercising their craft in shops, many of which were found in the same district or quarter, as is still the practice in the East to-day.

Diocletian, Emperor - Elsewhere every Town in the empire witnessed acts of incredible cruelty
Ammonites - At length their city Jaser, and the neighbouring Town, fell a prey to the Jews, who smote the men, carried their wives and children into captivity, and plundered and burned the city.

Israel - As they made no attack, the besieged were thrown off their guard, so that, when on the seventh day the Israelites made an attack at the end of their marching, they easily captured the Town. We learn from Judges 15:1-20 that they possessed the Town of Zorah, where Samson was afterwards born
Education - there was a synagogue in every Town, and in the 2nd cent. 63 to 65, and who ordained that teachers of youth should be placed in every Town and every village, and that children on arriving at school age should be sent to them for instruction. Plutarch in his treatise on the education of children says: ‘Some one may object that I in undertaking to give prescriptions in the training of children of free citizens apparently neglect the training of the poor Townsmen, and only think of instructing the rich-to which the obvious answer is that I should desire the training I prescribe to be attainable alike by all; but if any through want of private means cannot attain it, let them blame their fortune and not their adviser
Joram - Josephus mentions, under the name of Paneas, both the Town and the district of which it was the centre; he also mentions the Paneion, and speaks of ‘the famous fountain’ (cf. This circumstance undoubtedly accounts largely for the fact that there are not and never have been any Towns on the banks of the Jordan. The few Towns of the Ghôr at one time populated, e.

Synagogue - The general management of the synagogue of a Jewish Town, where it served also as a court of justice and in the smaller Towns and villages at least as a school, was in the hands of the elders of the community.

Elijah - Scheutzer observes, that he cannot think that the orebim of the Hebrew, rendered "ravens," means, as some have thought, the inhabitants of a Town called Oreb, nor a troop of Arabs called orbhim; and contends that the bird called the raven, or one of the same genus, is intended
Simon Maccabaeus - Simon Magus was a native of Gittum, a Town in Samaria; and it is stated in a suspicious document of ancient though doubtful date, that he studied for some time at Alexandria

Hieronymus, Eusebius (Jerome) Saint - 346 at Stridon, a Town near Aquileia, of Catholic Christian parents (Pref. They probably first returned home and lived together for a time in Aquileia, or some other Town in N
Augustinus, Aurelius - His father Patricius, a jovial, sensual, passionate man, and till near the end of his life a heathen, was one of the curiales of the Town, but without large means. He early shewed signs of pre-eminent ability, and his parents, both of whom entertained the ordinary parental ambitions, found means to send him to school at the neighbouring Town of Madaura. —One day a Christian fellow-townsman Pontitianus who held an appointment at court called to visit Alypius. After the baptism, Augustine, with Alypius, and Evodius, a fellow-townsman, converted before Augustine himself, who had joined him at Milan, set out for Africa, with the intention of continuing their common life. Augustine travelled to different places in search of a suitable site—avoiding Towns where the see was vacant, for he knew that his growing fame might lead men to think of him
Jerusalem - Instead of a wretched and ruined Town, by some described as the desolated remnant of Jerusalem, we beheld, as it were, a flourishing and stately metropolis, presenting a magnificent assemblage of domes, towers, palaces, churches, and monasteries; all of which, glittering in the sun's rays, shone with inconceivable splendour. It appeared like a walled Town of the third or fourth class, having neither towers, nor domes, nor minarets within it, in sufficient numbers to give even a character to its impressions on the beholder; but showing chiefly large flat-roofed buildings of the most unornamented kind, seated amid rugged hills, on a stony and forbidding soil, with scarcely a picturesque object in the whole compass of the surrounding view
Palestine - ...
In this article we shall consider the influence on Jesus (1) of Syria as a whole; (2) of the Gentile elements in the land; (3) of the open field and of Nature as seen in Syria; (4) of the Town and village life with which He was familiar; (5) of the city of Jerusalem. Such books as Townsend’s Asia and Europe and Fielding Hall’s The Soul of a People (to mention two out of many popular accounts of East and West), though their generalizations are not always convincing, are full of suggestive illustrations of this. ‘Eternal consciousness!’ exclaims Townsend: ‘that to the majority of Asiatics is not a promise but a threat. Not far from this edge, nestling in hollows or crowning heights, lay the Towns and villages among which Jesus spent His early years. We are not, indeed, told that He visited those Towns, and the word ‘coasts’ may even refer to the landward district near them. Yet, obviously, no place could offer Him better hiding than a manufacturing: seaport Town, where He would be easily lost in the crowds of workmen which came and went about the dye-works and the glass-works and the shipbuilding yards, or in the many-coloured throngs of native and foreign sailors on the quays, It is characteristic of Jesus that the record of that visit ignores the whole splendour of the wealthy life of Phœnicia; its temples with their sun-pillars, its markets, and its ships might have been non-existent for all the notice given to them
Theodorus, Bishop of Mopsuestia - Theodore first appears as the early companion and friend of Chrysostom, his fellow-townsman, his equal in rank, and but two or three years his senior in age. ...
Mopsuestia was a free Town (Pliny) upon the Pyramus, between Tarsus and Issus, some 40 miles from either, and 12 from the sea. It is now the insignificant Town Mensis, or Messis (D
Ships And Boats - Zidon, the earliest Phœnician settlement, was, like its synonym, Beth-saida, derived from a root meaning to catch prey, and was doubtless first noted as a fishing Town
Judges, Theology of - In Gibeah (the hometown of Saul) his party is not shown any hospitality by the native citizens of the Town; rather a man from Ephraim finally comes to his aid
Assur - of the Town Mayadin (Chesney): Genesis 10:10-12
Jews, Judaism - Prophetic promises and messianic hope based on the study of God's Word among those in exile made possible the remnant that returned to rebuild temple and Town, as God had promised through the prophet Jeremiah (25:11; 29:10-14)
Lazarus - He repaired to the sepulchre, which lay at least 2000 cubits outside the Town,* Capernaum - But it has to be remembered that these large villages or Towns on the Sea of Galilee had each its ‘territory. 1); and the ‘Gerasene’ demoniac (in Mark 5:1-17 ||) is a case of the same kind—the swine were not feeding in the Town itself but in its territory
the Angel of the Church in Philadelphia - Mill, influenced and edified the whole Town and country round about
Greece, Religion And Society of - As the Town grew, the residence moved to the slopes; and the Acropolis was reserved for the king's palace and temple
Ibas, Bishop of Edessa - Reports diligently spread in Edessa during his absence of Ibas's heterodoxy made his reception so unfavourable that he was obliged to leave the Town and call upon the "magister militiae" for a guard to protect him
Edom - A single extract from the Travels of Volney will be found to be equally illustrative of the prophecy and of the fact: "This country has not been visited by any traveller, but it well merits such an attention; for, from the report of the Arabs of Bakir, and the inhabitants of Gaza, who frequently go to Maan and Karak; on the road of the pilgrims, there are, to the south-east of the lake Asphaltites, (Dead Sea,) within three days' journey, upward of thirty ruined Towns absolutely deserted. These Towns were situated on the adjacent gulf of the Red Sea, where we still find the latter yet retaining its name, and perhaps the former in that of El Akaba, or ‘the end of the sea. It even appears that the Idumeans rivalled the Tyrians, who also possessed a Town, the name of which is unknown, on the coast of Hedjaz, in the desert of Tih, and the city of Faran, and, without doubt, El-Tor, which served it by way of port. Of its eastern boundary, and of the adjoining part of Arabia Petrea, strictly so called, Burckhardt writes: "It might, with truth, be called Petrea, not only on account of its rocky mountains, but also of the elevated plain already described, which is so much covered with stones, especially flints, that it may with great propriety be called a stony desert, although susceptible of culture; in many places it is overgrown with wild herbs, and must once have been thickly inhabited; for the traces of many Towns and villages are met with on both sides of the Hadj road between Maan and Akaba, as well as between Maan and the plains of the Hauran, in which direction are also many springs
Prayer - Where there was no synagogue, a spot outside the Town was chosen, near some stream, for hand-washing before prayer ( Acts 16:13 ; Acts 16:16 )
Priscillianus And Priscillianism, Priscillian - Elusa (Eluso) near Eauze, a Town on the Gelise near Auch, is especially mentioned
Bible - And His revealing His will "in many portions" (polumeros ; Hebrews 1:1, one prophet or inspired person or writer receiving one portion of revelation, another another: to Noah the quarter of the world where Messiah should appear, to Abraham the nation, to Jacob the tribe, to David and Isaiah the family, to Micah the Town, to Daniel the time), and "in divers manners," corresponds to tits sending from time to time a Bacon, Newton, Shakespeare, etc

Leadership - There were elders in the individual Towns (Judges 11:3-11 ; 1 Corinthians 14:29-3210 ; 30:26-31 ; 1 Kings 21:8,11 ). First Samuel 30:26-31 indicates that the elders of Judah were comprised of the elders of the individual Towns, though later Ezekiel speaks of "seventy elders of Israel" (8:11-12). Galatians 1:19 assumes that most of them are out of Town (Jerusalem), presumably on missionary endeavors
Paul as a Man of Prayer - Speaking of Paul's physician, I shall close with a few lines on this subject, out of the private papers of Sir Thomas Browne, a man of prayer, not unworthy to be named with the Apostle himself: "To pray in all places where quietness inviteth; in any house, highway, or street; and to know no street in this city that may not witness that I have not forgotten God and my Saviour in it: and that no parish or Town where I have been may not say the like
Dress (2) - Indeed, among the better class of Townsfolk it is probable that Jewish costume was largely modified under Hellenic and Roman influence. In the Towns it is often ornamented with yellow silk worked in patterns; while the haj who has made the Mecca pilgrimage, and the Druse, wear plain white; and the sherîf or ‘descendant of the prophet’ wears green. Shoes are to-day almost universally worn; but a fellah with a new pair of shoes will often, when outside the Town, prefer to save his shoes from wear and tear by carrying them. Lebâs or drawers, though utterly despised by the true Arab, are in common use in Towns
Egypt - And when a famine arose through many years, I distributed the grain through the Town in every famine. Among the various other allusions to Egypt in the Bible are those to its fertility and productions, Genesis 13:10; Exodus 16:3; Numbers 11:5; to its mode of irrigation as compared with the greater advantages of Canaan, which had rain and was watered by natural streams, Deuteronomy 11:10; its commerce with Israel and the people of western Asia, Genesis 37:25; Genesis 37:36; 1 Kings 10:28-29; Ezekiel 27:7; its armies equipped with chariots and horses, Exodus 14:7; Isaiah 31:1; its learned men and its priests, Genesis 41:8; Genesis 47:22; Exodus 7:11; 1 Kings 4:30; its practice of embalming the dead, Genesis 50:3; its aversion to shepherds, and its sacrifices of cattle, Genesis 46:34; Exodus 8:26; how its people should be admitted into the Jewish Church, Exodus 1:11; the warnings to Israel against any alliance with the Egyptians, Isaiah 30:2; Isaiah 36:6; Ezekiel 17:15; Ezekiel 29:6; and to the Towns of the country
Division of the Earth - Of Canaan's sons, Sidon, the eldest, occupied the north-west corner, and built the Town of that name, so early celebrated for her luxury and commerce in Scripture, Judges 18:7 ; 1 Kings 5:6 ; and by Homer, who calls the Sidonians, πολυδαιδαλοι , skilled in many arts

Cures - The ears and the tongue of the deaf-mute are touched, the blind man in one case is led out of the Town, saliva is applied to his eyes, and the touch of the Lord’s hand; in the other the eyes are anointed and the patient is sent to a distant pool in the exercise of faith
Red Sea - He evidently confounded the Town of Kolsum, the ruins of which he places near Suez, and where he supposed the passage to be made, with the bay of Kolsum, which began about forty-five miles lower down; as Bryant has satisfactorily proved, from the astronomical observations of Ptolemy and of Ulug Beigh, made at Heroum, the ancient head of the gulf

Government - When the Sumerians came to Iraq they discovered that the land was already organized loosely into groups of villages and small Towns, a system that they further developed. Each small Town had its own synagogue, where the men met to worship on the Sabbath and to hear the law explained
Jerusalem - Its elevation is remarkable; occasioned, not from its being on the summit of one of the numerous hills of Judæa, like most of the Towns and villages, but because it is on the edge of one of the highest table-lands of the country. ...
To the four hills, Zion, Ophel, Acra, and Moriah, in the ancient city may be added the hill of Goath, and Bezetha, the new Town. , "broad place of the gate of Ephraim," Nehemiah 8:16; and the "open place of the first gate toward the east" could not have been "streets," in our sense of the word, but rather open spaces found in eastern Towns near the inside of the gates
Passover - Jehovah smote the firstborn of man and beast, and so "executed judgment against all the gods of Egypt" (Exodus 12:12; Numbers 33:3-4), for every nome and Town had its sacred animal, bull, cow, goat, ram, cat, frog, beetle, etc
Ephraim (4) the Syrian - On his expedition against the Persians Julian had advanced as far as Haran a Town so famous for obstinate adherence to heathenism that Haranite in Syriac is equivalent to pagan and there determined to hold a great sacrifice to which he commanded the Edessenes to send chosen citizens to do him homage and to grace by their presence his restoration of the old cult
Papyri And Ostraca - In ancient times the dumping grounds for rubbish and refuse were on the outskirts of the cities, Towns, and villages. To show that the ostraca, besides their indirect importance, have also a direct value for the history of Christianity, we may refer to the potsherds inscribed with texts from the Gospels, or the early Christian legal documents recently discovered at the Town of Menas, but chiefly to the Coptic potsherds containing numerous Christian letters and illustrating particularly the inner history of Egyptian Christianity
Judas Iscariot (2) - ’ A less probable opinion is that the Town referred to is Κορέαι or Kurawa (Josephus BJ i. If any one of these Towns was the birthplace of Judas, he was not a Galilaean
Birth of Christ - It has, indeed, not unfrequently happened that a man has been associated with, or even named after, a Town where his youth and early manhood have been passed, rather than after the actual place of his birth, in which his parents may have sojourned for a while (B

Egypt - In every part of Egypt, we find the Towns built in this manner, upon the ruins, or rather the rubbish, of the former habitations.

Arminianism - To avoid this tyrannical treatment, many of them retired to Antwerp, others to France, and a considerable number into Holstein, where they were kindly received by Frederick the duke, and where, in the form of a colony, they built for themselves a handsome Town, naming it Frederickstadt, in compliment to their friend and protector

Roman Empire - It was a community of shepherds, who, along with their wives, families, and property, were protected from an enemy by the strong walls surrounding the Town. Hill Towns are still a feature of Italy. The free inhabitants of Italy consisted now of (a) Roman citizens, residents in Roman territory and in coloniae, and individuals in municipia on whom citizenship had been conferred; (b) inhabitants of municipia (certain country Towns) who had the citizenship of Rome (i. ) Latini, who stood in a relation to Rome like that of the parties to the old Latin league, and had the capacity for acquiring Roman citizenship, by going to Rome or (later) by holding a magistracy in their own Towns; (ii. His attack on the two Towns Oricum and Apollonia on the Illyrian side of the Adriatic, which had recently come into the possession of the Romans, drew Rome into the vortex of Eastern politics
