From shells and spice to shekels and mites

How about a little frankincense for your birthday? It might not be your first choice for a present today, but at the time Jesus was born, it was a valuable gift. Suppose you lived in a country that had no banks, no checking accounts, no credit cards, and no paper money. Coins were rare. What would you do if you wanted to buy some candy? You'd have to go to the person who made candy and offer to trade something or do some work in exchange for the candy.

That's how people got the things they needed before money came into use. Thousands of years ago, people usually lived in small villages. They raised most of their own food, built their own simple homes and furniture, and made their own clothes. Or they might trade with a neighbor, giving him grain in exchange for animal hides or sheep's wool.

Then villages got bigger and people began to specialize. One person became a carpenter, another raised cattle. Trading became more common. But what would a weaver do if he needed bread, and the baker didn't need cloth? He might try to find out what the baker did need, perhaps some firewood, and trade cloth to someone else for firewood, then trade that to the baker. It could get pretty complicated.

So people began to assign values to items that were easy to trade, such as shells, beads, and metals like gold, silver, and copper. Because these metals had to be mined and refined, they were very valuable. At first these metals were traded in lumps called ingots. The ingots were stamped with information about their weight and value. Merchants would still have to weigh the ingots each time, though. Some metal might have been chipped or shaved off. Sometimes a merchant took a little nick out of the ingot to see if it was solid gold or contained some other metal inside.

Historians think the first coins may have been created, or minted, in about 700 BC in Lydia, a region in modern Turkey. These coins were round lumps of precious metals with their weight stamped on them.

A good coin would have a large seal on each side covering the entire area of the coin. That way, people could tell if any of the metal had been chipped or shaved off. (The ridges - called "reeding" - around the edges of modern coins were originally added so that you could tell if any metal had been nicked off.) The seal might be a picture of an animal, a politician, a god, or some other object. Traders brought coins to Greece and Iran, and their popularity grew.

By the 5th century BC, coins were being used throughout much of the Middle East and Mediterranean region. Rulers had coins minted to mark important events or with their pictures on them. Ancient Jewish coins were produced during only a relatively short period from 134 BC to AD 135.

Since coins in biblical times were hand-made, each might have a different weight and value. Merchants had to weigh the coins each time a trade was made. They used a set of balancing scales to do this. To weigh the coin, it would be put on one side of the scale, and counterweights of a known weight would be put on the other side until the scales balanced. Then the merchant knew that the coins weighed the same as the counterweights on the other side.

Scales like those used to weigh coins in biblical times have been traced back to 3000 BC in Egypt. They may have evolved from the shoulder yokes worn by people to carry heavy loads. The wooden yoke went across the carrier's shoulders and burdens were hung from the ends, divided equally so the load would balance. Balance scales are still used by scientists today to weigh tiny amounts of chemicals and other items.

To find out if a coin was made of pure gold without melting it down or damaging it, merchants used another invention from Lydia: a touchstone. Touchstone is a fine-grained velvety black rock, a kind of quartz. When a gold coin is rubbed on a touchstone, it leaves a stripe of a particular color. The color of the stripe is compared to the mark made by gold of a known purity. The test is quite accurate.

By the time Jesus was born, people in his region were familiar with coins. It's not likely that they used them for all their purchases, though. Bartering was still very common, and trades involved not only coins, but also other items of worth such as frankincense and myrrh.

In the story of the three wise men visiting Jesus at his birth, three scholars in a country far to the east of Jerusalem notice an unusual occurrence in the night sky. They know from their studies that this is the sign of an important event. They are Magi, who have studied how to read the signs of the sky and interpret them. Their job is to make predictions based on these observations, and they are well paid by members of the royal court. The Magi's pay might have been in the form of gold and silver coins, but also in valuable spices and other items. Spices were highly valued in Bible times. Frankincense and myrrh were burned as incense during worship and used in making perfumes. They were also used as medicine or in burial preparations. And items such as these were also a form of currency, because they were valuable and easy to carry around.

So when the Magi find the newborn king, they give him the same royal gifts that they have received from princes and kings - gold, frankincense, and myrrh. They also warned the baby's parents that Herod, the pro-Roman Jewish governor of Galilee, feared the baby could threaten his throne. Herod, they said, might try to harm the child. So Mary and Joseph took their infant to Egypt, perhaps using the gifts of the Magi to pay their way and support them while they were in hiding.

As more metals were mined and refined, coins became more common. Eventually, most purchasing in developed countries was done with coins and then paper money. Now we also have checks, credit cards, and debit cards. Large sums of money change hands without any materials at all, but simply as numbers sent and received electronically. In today's society, wise uncles and aunts may give children gifts in the latest style: gift certificates from Internet shopping sites.

Nov. 23 to 30 is National Bible Week in the United States.

A teeter-totter (or do you say "seesaw"?) is a modern example of the kind of scales used to weigh coins in biblical times. You can make your own simple balance scale using a pencil and a ruler. Put the pencil on a table. Now balance a ruler on the pencil by placing the ruler flat across the pencil, perpendicular to it.

Once you get the center of the ruler exactly on the pencil, the ruler will balance. Both ends will be in the air. Take two paper clips and carefully place one at each end of the ruler. The ruler should still balance.

Now try putting a large paper clip on one side and a small one on the other. Your scale will overbalance. Can you add a second paper clip to make your scale balance again? Or try sliding the pencil closer to the heavier clip. Can you make it balance that way? By moving the pencil, you're changing the scale's center of gravity.

This "center of gravity" principle was used by Romans 2,000 years ago to weigh heavy objects. Instead of using an equal-armed scale, one with a short arm and a long arm was used. A heavy object was hung from the short arm of the scale. A lighter object was moved up or down the long arm until the two arms balanced. Markings on the long arm showed the weight of the heavy object. Today this is known as a steelyard scale.

Coins as money didn't start to be common until about 500 BC, and a shekel was a unit of weight before it was a coin. So some Old Testament references to "10 shekels of silver" mean silver that weighs 10 shekels (about 4 ounces), not 10 silver coins.

To add to the confusion, when shekels became coins, there were "light" shekels and "heavy" shekels. "Light" ones had only half the value of "heavy" ones. So how much would a shekel be worth today? It depends. Modern scholars put its value at between 32 and 64 cents.

Judas Iscariot's infamous "30 pieces of silver," the bribe he was paid to betray Jesus, was a unit of 30 shekels called an "argurion." An argurion was the fee required from someone who accidentally killed a servant.

Three thousand shekels made up a unit known as a talent. A silver talent was worth $960 to $1,920 and weighed between 38 and 76 pounds (depending on whether the shekels were "heavy" or "light"). A talent of gold was valued at $14,400 to $28,800. (See the parable of the servants and the talents in Matt. 25.)

And the widow's two mites, which she cast into the treasury (Mark 12:42)? Worth about 1/8th cent apiece.


Why does the recipe say "cut into 1 1/2-inch-thick rounds" yet the photo seems to be of cut into quarter or 1/8 lenghts. And the video is for a different recipte -- scallops. Did people cut the yams as they look in the photo? Thank you.

Supposed to bake 40 minutes and they were burned at 16 minutes. I was going to flip them at 20. I cut the heat to 400 and by 30 minutes they were even more burned. And yet, they weren't remotely crispy. Basically burned and soggy. Threw them away and went back to Russell potatoes. Not remotely the right instructions to cook sweet potatoes.

Love yams done this way. I agree that cooking them at 375* for 35-40 minutes is perfect. They have a crunchy exterior and soft interior.

This is my favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. I cube them, and everyone loves the sweet spicy chunks!

These were absolutely delicious! My kids (7 and 3) devoured them. I cut a few of the larger rounds in half, those browned a lot more than the full rounds. I did turn them after about 30 min then let them finish off for another 10 so both sides would brown. I think using fresh thyme is important in this dish, dried might be too hard and gritty. Will make again for sure!

These are the best by far. good warm and great cold. I have already made them twice since last week. ☆☆☆☆☆

I've been making these for years and they're simply amazing. Adjustments to keep them from burning: I roast them at 375 or so in middle of the oven. I often use chopped shallots instead of the garlic. I toss the potatoes in olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme or rosemary, hot pepper flakes, and sometimes smoky paprika and roast for 15-20 minutes and then add the shallots/onions tossed in the same bowl with the olive oil residue and a little salt and scatter them over the potatoes for the rest of the baking time. Usually I flip them over after about 25 mins so both sides get browned. They come out dry/crisped on the outside and terrifically moist inside. Buying a good baking sheet can make all the difference, as well, with this recipe. The Nordic Ware aluminum commercial half sheet is inexpensive and has completely changed my cooking life.

This recipe is definitely a keeper. Easy and great flavor. Like previous reviewers advised I cut in 1/2 inch disks. I cooked for 40 minutes and some were charred so would probably take out at 35 minutes next time. Also, with 4 sweet potatoes I needed 2 9x13 dishes not one.

Nice easy recipe that can be adjusted by additions. Good alternative to a plain roasted potato I will use this recipe often.

Very tasty, spice lovers will like this. I doubled the spice and used dried thyme, but I know this dish is better with fresh thyme. Next time I might make/use a thyme infused olive oil to add another thyme dimension. Only 3 stars because I save 4 stars for my wow/company-worthy dishes. For us, this was a great midweek side dish.

These potatoes were great -- I used mini sweet potatoes quartered lengthwise and they were great. Served with pork tenderloin medallions with a maple bourbon glaze and peas. Had a chardonnay with it to cut through some of the sweetness.

Peeled and diced the sweet potatoes into 3/4" cubes and mixed with the ingredients stated in the recipe then roasted for 30 minutes. These were yummy.

I made this tonight for my husband and I. One long potato (about 8 inches) 2 to 2 1/4 in in diameter was just a little big for the two of us. I cut it in 3/4 inch disks and it took 30 minutes at 425 degrees F. We enjoyed it a lot. I served it with Pork Tenderloin with Maple Glaze, steamed brussels sprouts w/butter and caraway. Plus a salad. Yum. No dessert needed with all the sweet flavors.

Made this for Thanksgiving this year for a big event as a savory version of the traditional sweet potatoes. It worked well, and the group loved it.

I tried this recipe because I had some sweet potatoes lying around. Apparently, I had them a little too long because only two smaller ones were good enough to use. I also had a butternut squash, so I added that to have enough for the recipe. I also didn't have the red pepper flakes another reviewer suggested but I like things spicy so I added chipotle spice along with pablano peppers instead of bell peppers. We wanted a main dish, so I added italian chicken sausage. It turned out amazing and nothing was left over! The butternut squash cooked faster than the sweet potatoes, so next time I may add those 10 minutes into the cooking process. Great recipe - just a little chopping and time in the oven and you've got an amazing main dish!

Loved this recipe. It was very simple but perfect and I will definitely be making it again. I'm glad I had all the ingredients on hand. My potatoes were browning and soft at 30 minutes.

These were delicious! Only made a couple of minor changes. Used 1 T dried thyme as I prefer it over fresh, cut the slices into half circles, and cut the garlic cloves in half and discarded them after they flavored the potatoes. Mine burned a bit (wasn't watching) so next time I'll probably lower the temp a bit and/or cut the roasting time.

Fantastic! I used about a little less thyme that recommended but I'm not a major fan of that spice.

Hi, Love the recipe, but I used coconut oil instead of olive oil. Olive Oil loses a lot of its value when heated at too high a temp. See attached link for more info.

This is a good recipe. To avoid burning the garlic, I turned the oven way down when the outsides were crisp and dark at the edges and spread the garlic in olive oil across the potatoes. When the rest of the meal is ready to plate, remove the potatoes from the oven and serve. The potatoes are crisp outside and tender and delicious inside.

Get the best of Bottom Line delivered right to your in-box

Is your Norman Rockwell print still valuable? What about that set of fine china you paid a fortune for years ago? Or those figurines you&rsquove been collecting? Collectibles go in and out of style&mdashand the collectibles market has experienced some dramatic shifts recently. Here what&rsquos hot now in the world of collecting&mdashand what&rsquos not&hellip

On the Rise

Prices have increased in the following categories. If you own any of these items&mdashor see an opportunity to snap them up at a garage sale&mdashthis could be a good time to sell them at a profit&hellip

Vinyl records. Old record albums seemed likely to fade into history in this age of digital music. Instead they have resurged in value. Prices vary, but many albums from the 1980s and earlier in near-mint or mint condition can bring $10 to $30 these days, and rare desirable albums sometimes sell for thousands.

Example: A rare original issue of the David Bowie album The Man Who Sold the World recently sold for slightly more than $10,000 on eBay. A near-mint copy of the more common Bowie album Space Oddity might bring $25 to $30.

Old stuff made of iron. Almost anything old, interesting and made of iron is popular. That includes iron doorstops&hellipgarden statues&hellippots and pans&hellipornate fencing and railings&hellipand distinctive household devices.

Example: A cast-iron doorstop from 1927 shaped like a lighthouse recently sold for $715.51 on eBay.

Norman Rockwell prints. These were little more than flea market fodder a decade ago, but the art world has reevaluated Rockwell, who died in 1978, and decided that he should be considered a serious artist after all. That has dramatically increased the value of original Rockwell paintings&mdasha Rockwell painting titled Saying Grace sold for $46 million in 2013&mdashand increased the value of Rockwell prints, too, even as much of the rest of the print market has declined. Original Rockwell prints come from three publishers&mdashAbrams, Circle Fine Art and Eleanor Ettinger, Inc.&mdashand have an original pencil signature by Norman Rockwell on the right side of the lower margin.

Example: Original prints of the Rockwell painting After the Prom can bring $4,000 to $5,000 on eBay.

Midcentury modern furniture and housewares. Furniture and housewares from the 1940s through the 1960s made in the then-futuristic &ldquomidcentury modern&rdquo style is hot now.

Examples: An Eames 670 lounge chair and an ottoman in a red leather from 1956 recently sold for $7,500 on eBay&hellipa Finn Juhl Design teak salad bowl recently sold for $3,827.99.

Distinctive antique typewriters. Rare typewriters made before the 1920s with unusual shapes are very much in demand these days, perhaps as a backlash against soulless computer keyboards.

Example: An 1881 Hammond 1 Typewriter with ebony keys and a curved keyboard sold for $1,600.

Hermès handbags. Used Hermès handbags can sell for thousands of dollars even if they are not exceptionally old and rare. Bags that feature high-end flourishes such as diamonds, gold or platinum hardware some­times fetch five or even six figures.

Example: Heritage Auctions sold a Hermès Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin bag with diamonds and gold hardware for $185,000. A basic Hermès ­Rouge Garance Evelyn bag sold for $2,000 on eBay.

Vintage political collectibles. Campaign buttons, posters and items with images of political candidates from the 1920s or earlier are selling well.

Example: A Calvin Coolidge/Charles Dawes 1924 campaign button with an attached eagle pin recently sold for more than $5,600 on eBay.

Oil-and gas-related ­antiques and advertising items. &ldquoPetroliana&rdquo&mdashthat is, gas station&ndashrelated collectibles&mdashincluding vintage enameled gas station signs, pre-1960 oil cans and the glass globes that once sat atop early gas pumps are in great demand.

Example: An enameled Gulf Supreme Motor Oil sign from the 1930s sold for $2,925 on eBay.

Taxidermy. Stuffed, mounted animals and animal heads used to attract little interest at estate sales, but lately they have been climbing in value. Exotic animals are especially desirable, but some states have laws controlling their sale&mdasha local taxidermist might be able to provide details.

Examples: A mounted bison head in good condition can bring $1,000 to $2,000 on eBay. A more common six- or eight-point whitetail deer head often will fetch $60 to $150.

On the Outs

The market has dried up for the following collectibles. That doesn&rsquot mean you shouldn&rsquot buy these things&mdashin fact, this is a great time to find great deals. But it does mean that you should buy these items only if you love them, not as investments. After collectibles fall out of favor, they might rebound, but there is no guarantee that they will&hellip

Figurines. Knickknack-size items are increasingly seen as clutter to avoid. Figurine values have fallen farthest due to this trend, but other undersized collectibles ranging from antique bottle openers to decorative thimbles have seen their values slide, too.

Examples: Royal Doulton Bunnykins figurines once sold for perhaps $100 apiece. Today you can find them at $25 for a lot of six. (The most desirable ones can bring more.) Most examples of the Hummel figurine &ldquoStormy Weather&rdquo (shown above) sell for between $40 and $60 on eBay, a fraction of what they sold for two decades ago.

Antique wood furniture. The typical piece of antique wood furniture has lost around two-thirds of its value in the past decade or so. Many 19th-century tables, chairs and desks now can be had for $200 to $400&mdashright around what you might pay for a piece of pressed-wood furniture at Ikea. (Exceptionally well-made or attractive pieces of antique furniture still can have considerable value despite this decline in interest.)

Example: A maple drop-front Chippendale-style desk made in New Hampshire in 1780 would have sold for $3,000 in an antiques shop in the late 1990s&hellipbut just $300 to $500 today.

Modern toys in less-than-mint condition. Toys from the 1970s and 1980s were a hot collector category, but they have cooled dramatically and now have significant value only if they are extremely rare and/or are in such great condition that they look like they were never played with (or, better yet, still are in their original boxes).

Example: A typical Hot Wheels car from the 1970s in good but not perfect condition might have sold for $5 a few years ago&hellipbut now is worth the 25 cents it might fetch at a garage sale.

Fine china. Many older people who own fine china are downsizing, and the younger generations have shown little in­terest in purchasing this collectible. That has created a supply/de­mand imbalance that has devastated prices.

Example: A vintage Limoges set of 12 berry bowls sells for $150, a fraction of what it brought a decade or two ago.

Helpful: This could be a good time to buy a set of china that you&rsquove always wanted or add to a set you already have.

Lithographs and other prints. Norman Rockwell aside, the print market has fallen sharply in the past decade as tastes have shifted away from the historic and Americana scenes that many prints depict. (Prints of birds and fish are among the exceptions&mdashthey have held their value well.)

Example: A Currier & Ives large print that might have sold for $1,000 a decade ago now might bring $500.

Bakelite jewelry. In this century&rsquos early years, jewelry from the 1930s and 1940s made of Bakelite, a type of plastic, commanded prices in the hundreds of dollars, occasionally more. Values have collapsed&mdashthe market has become flooded by so-called &ldquofakelite,&rdquo a modern version of Bakelite that is extremely difficult to distinguish from the real thing.

Example: Now a Bakelite bracelet that might have sold for $500 a decade ago could bring just $100 at auction.

Taco Bell's dollar menu actually raised the price of some items

When items officially find their way onto a fast food dollar menu they're supposed to be a better deal than previously, right? That's the idea at least. Unfortunately, that may not technically always be the case.

When Taco Bell officially started calling their value menu the Dollar Cravings Menu in 2014, customers were treated to 11 items for the flat price of $1. While this might have still been cheaper than the $2 items showing up on McDonald's and Wendy's dollar menus, it actually raised the price of some Taco Bell items (via Money).

Before finding their way to the Dollar Cravings Menu, popular favorites like Cinnamon Twists, the Cheese Roll-up, and Crispy Potato Soft Taco were priced at 99 cents. When they went to the new menu they were a penny more expensive. Obviously, a penny increase in price isn't much and nobody made a fuss about it, but technically, the move to the dollar menu for those three items didn't work in favor of the customer.

The ultimate guide to WW SmartPoints® for every condiment

There’s a convenient way to add a big punch of flavor to any dish without reinventing the wheel: Reach for a condiment. Whether you’re a sriracha or mayo person, a squirt or scoop of your favorite sauce, dip, or spread can quickly make over a meal.

And here’s some good news: on myWW+ , these add-ons won’t interfere with your weight loss efforts. Many condiments are low in Smartpoints ®, so you can easily mix-and-match. Ketchup, mustard, and relish on that hotdog? Why not! Two different types of hot sauce on your scrambled eggs? Go for it.

That said, if you want an extra dollop of barbecue sauce or sour cream on your food, remember to track portion sizes when measuring out your condiments. One tablespoon of no-sugar-added ketchup has zero SmartPoints (Green, Blue, Purple), but if you use 3 tablespoons with your fries, then it goes up to 1 SmartPoints value (Green, Blue, Purple).

Why is there vanilla in the chocolate Frosty?

The secret ingredient in every Wendy's Frosty—both Classic Chocolate and Vanilla—is vanilla. Kappus was apparently inspired by ice cream at a race track in Cleveland, to which Kappus' company had supplied the ice cream machine. A sign on the ice cream machines at the track read, "SECRET FORMULA, FROSTED MALTED," according to the Wendy's blog.

At the time, vanilla wasn't so secret. In fact, it was used widely amongst ice cream mixers because it smoothed out the chocolate, altering the flavor into more of a malt-like taste.

After Kappus introduced Thomas to the racetrack's ice cream style, Thomas knew they had something good. So they added vanilla to the chocolate Frosty. The rest is pretty much history.

Please Share with Your Friends – The World Needs Turmeric!

I hope you learned something from this article – WHAT IS GOLDEN PASTE? If you take just one thing away I would like it to be that Golden Paste heals inflammation and inflammation is what causes the majority of disease in the body. Please share this with friends and family. They deserve to know this too.

I have recently come across a supplement that I now recommend if you cannot get hold of turmeric in the paste or powdered form. It’s called Turmeric Plus and I have researched it thoroughly and it gets my tick of approval. Click on the pic below to check it out.
