The biblical research “The Importance of the family in the Old
Testament” presents the cultural customs of the families in the Jewish
culture before Christ, as it is mentioned in the books of the
Old Testament. The study analyses the monogamic and polygamic
families in the Jewish culture, the education of children and the
relations between husband and wife, governed by the fear of God.
The research emphasises the importance of the concept of family in
the Old Testament and the biblical conception on the family.
