If you’ve ever wondered about writing historical fiction, you need to know that it requires all the usual novelist skills as well as a real love for research . . . because you’re going to have to dig. You can’t have your characters sit down to dinner without knowing where they’re going to eat, what they’re going to eat, and how they’re going to eat it. Contrary to rumor, you can’t just make it up.
Okay–I’ll toss out two questions. See how you do at finding the answers . . . and if you enjoy the process.
1.) See if you can find the names of Jesus’ half-brothers and half-sisters. How many of each?
2). How many pieces of clothing did the typical Galilean man wear . . . and what were they?
🙂 I’ll give you the answers the next time I’m able to blog.
Shalom! I’m in an airport . . . again.
