Type the word “dating” into your bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book of the bible dedicated to the topic, or at least even a chapter.
Not only is there nothing said about the topic, but the concept of dating didn’t even exist in biblical times.
Even today in the cultures of the Middle East, dating is a relatively new concept.
The modern-day concept of “dating” looked far different 2,000 years ago.
The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.
Finding a mate functioned a lot more like a bartering system than dinner and a movie.
