Mirror

Additional Links
A polished or smooth surface that produces images by reflection. Throughout the biblical period mirrors were made of polished metal (bronze, Exodus 38:8 ; molten [metal], Job 37:18 ). Glass mirrors became available only in the late Roman period. Paul's readers could be expected to appreciate the illustration of the unclear image of a metal mirror (1 Corinthians 13:12 ). See Glass .
