[Cae·sa·re′a], pertaining to Caesar—An important biblical seaport located south of modern Haifa. Built at enormous expense by Herod the Great between 25 and 13 B.C., and named in honor of Caesar Augustus, the city was sometimes called Caesarea of Palestine to distinguish it from Caesarea Philippi.
Herod spent 12 years building his seaport jewel on the site of an ancient Phoenician city named Strato’s Tower. He constructed a huge breakwater. The enormous stones he used in this project were 15.25 meters (50 feet) long, 5.5 meters (18 feet) wide, and 2.75 meters (9 feet) deep. Some of them still can be seen extending 45.75 meters (150 feet) from the shore. Caesarea frequently was the scene of disturbances as cities of mixed Jewish–Gentile population tended to be. When Pilate was prefect (governor) of Judea, he lived in the governor’s residence at Caesarea. In 1961, a stone inscribed with his name was found in the ruins of an ancient amphitheater there. Philip the evangelist preached there (Acts 8:40), and Peter was sent there to minister to the Roman centurion Cornelius (Acts 10:1, 24; 11:11). Herod Agrippa I died at Caesarea, being “eaten of worms” (Acts 12:19–23).
Caesarea was prominent in the ministry of the apostle Paul as well. After Paul’s conversion, some brethren brought him to the port at Caesarea to escape the Hellenists and sail to his hometown of Tarsus (Acts 9:30). Paul made Caesarea his port of call after both his second and third missionary journeys (Acts 18:22; 21:8). Felix sent Paul to Caesarea for trial (Acts 23:23, 33) and the apostle spent two years in prison before making his celebrated defense before Festus and Agrippa (Acts 26). Paul sailed from the harbor in chains to appeal his case before the emperor in Rome (Acts 25:11; 26:1–13).
Other ruins on the site that demonstrate the splendor of ancient Caesarea are a large amphitheater and sections of an aqueduct, which was used to pipe water from the mountains to the coastal city. Caesarea attained ecclesiastical importance by becoming the seat of a bishop in the second century.

[Ha·na′ni], gracious—Five Old Testament men:
1. Father of Jehu, the prophet (1 Kings 16:1). He denounced Asa, king of Judah, and was imprisoned (2 Chron. 16:7).
2. Son of Heman. He was the head of the eighteenth course of musicians appointed by David for the sanctuary (1 Chron. 25:4, 25).
3. Son of Immer, a priest. He rejected his foreign wife (Ezra 10:20).
4. Nehemiah’s brother (Neh. 1:2; 7:2).
5. A Levite musician who officiated at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem (Neh. 12:36).

[Le·vi′a·than], coiled one—This word occurs only six times in the Old Testament but the term has stirred up great interest and controversy. Leviathan has become a word for anything of enormous size and power. The word is thought to be derived from a verb meaning “to twist.” Job 41 is devoted to a detailed description of Leviathan, with God challenging Job to master him.
Some scholars believe that in Job the word poetically describes the Nile crocodile with his scaly hide, terrible teeth, and fast swimming. They feel that this fits in with the overthrow of Egypt in the Red Sea, since “Leviathan” is used for Egyptian troops in Psalm 74:13–14. But in Psalm 104:25–26, some envision a dolphin or a whale. However, the description in Job 41:33–34 seems too majestic for a crocodile or dolphin, or even for a whale: “On earth there is nothing like him, which is made without fear. He beholds every high thing; he is king over all the children of pride.” Since we really do not know for certain what a Leviathan was (or is), the best we can say is “great sea animal whose identity we do not know.”

This book springs from the conviction that there is a new and different way to organize a concordance. For years, concordances have used the individual-word format to help Bible students find familiar passages of Scripture. But this book departs from that standard procedure by using important Bible phrases as the reference key. This system has several distinct advantages over the old approach.
First, this organization by phrases reduces the bulk of a concordance considerably, making it easier to handle and use. Suppose a Bible student is searching for a specific passage that mentions "word of God." With a standard exhaustive word concordance, he would have to labor through more than 900 references to "word" or about 4,500 occurrences of the word "God." But with Find It Fast in the Bible, he looks under "word of God" and its 48 occurrences to find exactly the passage he is searching for in a fraction of the time.
Another advantage of the phrase format is that it allows the user to trace an important theme or topic throughout the entire Bible. For example, the concept of the "Day of the Lord"—a time of God’s approaching judgment on an evil world—was a prominent theme of the prophet Joel. But a careful study of this phrase in Find It Fast in the Bible shows the idea was also mentioned by other Old Testament prophets as well as several New Testament writers. Other key biblical themes and phrases, such as "Spirit of God," "Kingdom of Heaven," and "Lord of Lords," are easy to research by using the information in Find It Fast in the Bible.
Finally, a concordance arranged by familiar Bible phrases is an excellent sourcebook of Scriptural quotations. New Testament writers often quoted from the Old Testament to support an argument or drive home an important point. Turn to the phrase, "Calls upon the name of the Lord," in this concordance for a good example of this quoting technique.
In this particular case, the apostle Peter quoted from the prophet Joel to impress his Jewish audience with the credentials of Christ. The careful Bible student will find many cases like this in Find It Fast in the Bible that show how often the New Testament draws upon the riches of the Old.
To use this handy concordance, try to recall a memorable phrase from the specific Bible passage you are searching for. Then look under that phrase in the book. The 5,200 phrases in Find It Fast in the Bible are arranged in alphabetical order according to the first words of the entries.
