Enjoy the light of King David, King Solomon, King Shaul and much more. Lamps appear in the Bible as lighting the way for the righteous, the wise, and for love and other positive values. While fire was described in the Bible as being destructive, light was given a positive spiritual meaning. The oil lamp and its light were important household items in Biblical times, and this may explain their use and connotations in the Bible. Oil lamps were used for many spiritual rituals. Lamps were used to honor the memory of the deceased as well as acting against evil spirits.
