I wrote, in a very recent post , “Are there some things very special about Judah that we need to acknowledge? Absolutely!! ”
Even as I wrote it, I was thinking of a few things I am very thankful to my brother Judah, or the Jews, for. Only later did I think, “I’m not sure I’ve ever said ‘thank you’ publicly!”
Indeed, all mankind has much to thank the Jews for as a cursory look at Nobel Winners will reveal a wildly disproportionate number of winners that are of Judaic decent. Countless inventions, scientific findings, technologies, etc are directly attributable to those of Jewish descent.
But this is more personal. As a believer Continue reading “Thank you, Judah!!”
I have recently written several posts highlighting glaring translator error or bias. Predictably, I have received multiple requests about Bible translation recommendations, or thoughts on a particular version… I should have seen that coming! So, here is a short post with a few thoughts..
While I am no expert on translations, I think there a few assertions I can safely make:
YHWH was pleased for His righteousness’ sake to make the Torah great and glorious! Is. 42:21
Did He stop being righteous?
Did He change His mind?
Or, is the idea that He did away with His Torah a FALSE teaching that does NOT square with Scripture in the front OR the back of the Book?
Now it will come about that
In the last days
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the TORAH will go forth from Zion
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
And He will judge between the nations,
And will render decisions for many peoples;
And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.
Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the Lord. Isaiah 2:2-5
… Uh, there is none. Look it up: Jeremiah 31:31
Are you grafted in? Do you know what that REALLY means?
