Quote of the Day – “In Jewish culture then a man and woman were betrothed or pledged to each other for a period of time before the actual consummation of their marriage. This betrothal was much stronger than an engagement period today, for the two were considered husband and wife except that they did not live together till after the wedding.” – Dr. John R. Martin in The Bible Knowledge Commentary
