BIBLE DEFINITIONS (GRACE, GRANT, GRAVE)

grace

GRACE- Favor or kindness shown without regard to the worth or merit of the one who receives it and in spite of what the person deserves. Grace is one of the key attributes of God. The Lord God is

“merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth.” Therefore, grace is almost always associated with mercy, love, compassion, and patience.

GRAVE- A place where the dead are buried. In general, the Hebrew people buried their dead in graves much as today, except that they were not as deep. In towns and cities the burial grounds were situated outside the city limits. Evidence of this may be seen today in the many graves in the Kidron Valley east of Jerusalem and at the Essene community overlooking the Dead Sea. Plain stones or a stone slab were used to cover the graves as a safeguard against animals and to mark the burial-place (2 Sam 18:17). In some instances hewn stones were used. Occasionally expensive pillars were used as memorials (2 Kin 23:17); thus, Jacob erected a pillar over Rachel’s grave (Gen 35:20), which today is marked by a building over the traditional site.
