Roman-Jewish oil lamp
Come with us to the everyday culture of the people about 2,000 years ago in the land of Jesus in Israel. It has become evening, the sun has set, the fishermen have pulled in their nets and are on their way home with their caught fish. Moon and stars are their lights on the way. Arriving home, they open the door and enter a room sufficiently lit with oil lamps, pretty and shrouded in mystery. Isn't that a wonderful feeling to be greeted with so much domestic warmth. The wife and children prepare the fish for the meal, they dine together and when the oil from the lamps is used up, everyone goes to sleep.
