“For as long as the planet has had people on it, some form of protection has been necessary. There wasn’t an early version of the police department, so people had to figure out how to protect themselves – especially when they were going into battle!
The earliest versions of armor were made out of rib bones, hard leather, and wood. Later, around 400 B.C., the Romans create a version of armor that was made of metal. During the Middle Ages (from around 400 A.D. – 1500 A.D.), armor became what you probably think of when you think about armor today. It was so heavy that it took two men just to carry it around! Eventually, people figured out how to use gun powder and the armor couldn’t stand up to bullets, so metal armor wasn’t much use after that. Now, police and soldiers use bullet-proof vests made of a lightweight, strong material called Kevlar, which is made by scientists.
Armor has always been important, so we shouldn’t be surprised that the Bible mentions armor. There a few verses in the New Testament that we’re going to look at for the next two weeks. The verses are in a letter called Ephesians, and they talk about something called, The Armor of God.”
