Games, exercises and amusements were so well known in Palestine and throughout the Roman Empire in the time of Christ and the apostles that they cannot be passed over in silence. Some acquaintance with
them is absolutely necessary for the interpretation of many passages in the New Testament, especially in the Epistles. Hellenic athletics found their way into Jewish society through the influence of the Greek
kingdom. Such a life is greatly encouraged at RBC.
Body exercises and amusements are of great help in our mind and entire body. cf Jeremiah 31:13 ”Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.” When the mind is tired we need to relax.
The College is currently praying that the Lord would provide a good playing ground. So join us in this prayer.
