Description

We chose an ancient oil lamp for the cover image of Will Our Generation Speak? because of the great symbolism it contains in relation to witnessing. These household lamps (from Jesus’ time) are most likely what His hearers pictured in their minds when they heard Him say the words, “Nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men … (Matthew 5:15-16).”

Like these little oil lamps, we are simple clay vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7). Like the oil lamps need to be regularly filled with oil, we continuously go to the Lord in His Word for refilling to burn brightly. Our relationship with Him is always top priority.


This Byzantine Lamp is an example of those used during early Christianity. This style was used from about 400 AD to 500 AD.

This lamp is intended to be used with vegetable oils, preferably olive oil.
Made in Israel.
Approximately 3.5 inches long
