Nothing is told of his parents but the father's name, though he must have been a man of some wealth and doubtless of earnest piety. No hint is given of Elisha's age or birth- place, and it is almost certain that he was born and reared at Abel-meholah, and was a comparatively young man when we first hear of him. His early life thus was spent on his father's estate, in a god-fearing family, conditions which have produced so many of God's prophets.

"-im" is a plural suffix in Hebrew, and the inhabitants of Rhodes[1] were also called Rodanim or Dodanim.

A General Favorite: Absalom was born at Hebron (2 Sam 3:3), and moved at an early age, with the transfer of the capital, to Jerusalem, where he spent most of his life. He was a great favorite of his father and of the people as well. His charming manners, his personal beauty, his insinuating ways, together with his love of pomp and royal pretensions, captivated the hearts of the people from the beginning. He lived in great style, drove in a magnificent chariot and had fifty men run before him. Such magnificence produced the desired effect upon the hearts of the young aristocrats of the royal city (2 Sam 15:1 ff). 2. In Exile: When Amnon, his half-brother, ravished his sister Tamar, and David shut his eyes to the grave crime and neglected to administer proper punishment, Absalom became justly enraged, and quietly nourished his anger, but after the lapse of two years carried out a successful plan to avenge his sister's wrongs. He made a great feast for the king's sons at Baalhazor, to which, among others, Amnon came, only to meet his death at the hands of Absalom's servants (2 Sam 13:1 ff). To avoid punishment he now fled to the court of his maternal grandfather in Geshur, where he remained three years, or until David, his father, had relented and condoned the murderous act of his impetuous, plotting son. At the end of three years (2 Sam 13:38) we find Absalom once more in Jerusalem. It was, however, two years later before he was admitted to the royal presence (2 Sam 14:28)... http://www.bible-history.com/isbe/A/ABSALOM+(1)/

King Ahaziah died shortly thereafter in battle at Megiddo and the throne was usurped by Queen Athaliah. About ninety years old at the time of this marriage to the young princess, he was instrumental in the staging of the coup that dethroned and killed the ultra wicked Queen Athaliah. Jehosheba and Jehoiada had rescued the infant Joash from Athaliah's slaughter of the royal children. For six years, they hid the sole surviving heir to the throne within the temple. Jehoiada guided much younger King Joash in a righteous rule for about 35 years which included restoration of the temple (2 Kings 12:4-15 ). Jehoida is also noteworthy for the national covenant that he made "between him, and between all the people, and between the king, that they should be the LORD's people" (2 Chronicles 23:16 ).

    According to the Bible, Daniel, also known as Chiliab, was the second son of David, King of Israel, with Abigail, widow of Nabal the Carmelite, David's third wife. (1 Chronicles 3:1, cf 2 Samuel 3:3) Unlike the other of David's three elder sons, Amnon, Absalom, and Adonijah who were important characters in 2 Samuel, Daniel is only named in the list of David's sons and no further mention is made to him. Though being the second son, Daniel was not a contender for the throne of Israel, even after the death of the first-born Amnon, the third-born Absalom and fourth-born Adonijah. The throne eventually passed to his younger half brother, Solomon.

He had six sons, one of whom was Amalek, born to his concubine Timna, who was the ancestral enemy of the Israelite people (Exodus 17:16; Deuteronomy 25:19). The Midrash relates that when Jacob escaped from Esau and fled to his uncle Laban in Haran, Esau sent Eliphaz to pursue and kill Jacob. When they met Jacob implored Eliphaz not to kill him, but Eliphaz challenged that he had his father's instructions to fulfill. Jacob gave everything he had with him to Eliphaz and said, "A poor person is as good as dead." Eliphaz was satisfied and left his uncle naked and penniless, but still alive.

  • Abel

    Abel, the second son of Adam and Eve, was murdered by his brother Cain. Abel was a shepherd and Cain was a farmer. They both made an offering to the Lord from the fruits of their labor. The Lord expressed favor toward Abel's offering, but rejected Cain's. In a fit of jealousy, Cain killed his brother (Genesis 4:2-8). In the New Testament, Abel is called righteous (Matthew 23:35), and is named by Jesus as a just and innocent man who suffers and is killed (Luke 11:51). Abel's sacrifice is judged greater than Cain's because of his faith, and this faith speaks beyond the grave (Hebrew 11:4).

  • Abagtha

    Abagtha was a court official (likely a eunuch) of King Ahasuerus. He is mentioned once in the Book of Esther (Esther 1:10). According to this narrative, he and six other officials suggested that Queen Vashti parade before the king and his ministers in the crown jewels. Her refusal led to her demise and the selection of Esther as the new queen of the Persian Empire. The Hebrew word סָרִיס (sarīs), translated eunuch, can mean a general court official, not only a castrated man. Since Abagtha and the other six officials are spoken of as attending to the king, not to royal women, it is possible that he was not a eunuch in the technical sense.

    Amoz was the father of the prophet Isaiah, mentioned in Isaiah 1:1 and 2:1, and in II Kings 19:2, 20; 20:1. Nothing else is known for certain about him. There is a Talmudic tradition that when the name of a prophet's father is given, the father was also a prophet, so that Amoz would have been a prophet like his son. Though it is mentioned frequently as the patronymic title of Isaiah, the name Amoz appears nowhere else in the Bible.

  • Amon

    Amon was the king of Judah who succeeded his father Manasseh of Judah on the throne according to the Bible. His mother was Meshullemeth, daughter of Haruz of Jotbah. He was married to Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath. Amon began his reign at the age of 22, and reigned for two years. (2 Kings 21:18-19 ) William F. Albright has dated his reign to 642-640 BC, while E. R. Thiele offers the dates 643/642 – 641/640 BC.[1] Amon continued his father's practice of idolatry, and set up the images as his father had done.Zephaniah 1:4 (also 3:4 , and 11) describes his reign as marked by moral depravity. He was assassinated (2 Kings 21:18-26 , 2 Chronicles 33:20- 25 ) by his servants, who conspired against him, and was succeeded by his son Josiah, who was eight years old. (2 Kings 22:1 ) At the end of Amon's reign, the international situation was in flux: to the east, the Assyrian Empire was beginning to disintegrate, the Babylonian Empire had not yet risen to replace it, and Egypt to the west was still recovering from Assyrian rule. In this power vacuum, Jerusalem was able to govern itself without foreign intervention. He is also one of the kings mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew. Thiele's dates for Amon are tied to the dates for his son Josiah, who reigned 31 years (2 Kings 22:1). Josiah's death at the hands of Pharaoh Necho II occurred in the summer of 609 BC.[2] By Judean reckoning that began regnal years in the fall month of Tishri, this would be in the year 610/609 BC. Amon's last year, 31 years earlier, then calculates as 641/640 BC and his first year as 643/642 BC.

He wrote about the end of the Assyrian Empire, and its capital city, Nineveh, in a vivid poetic style. Little is known about Nahum’s personal history. His name means "comforter," and he was from the town of Alqosh, (Nah 1:1) which scholars have attempted to identify with several cities, including the modern `Alqush of Assyria and Capharnaum of northern Galilee. He was a very nationalistic Hebrew however and lived amongst the Elkoshites in peace. His writings could be taken as prophecy or as history. One account suggests that his writings are a prophecy written in about 615 BC, just before the downfall of Assyria, while another account suggests that he wrote this passage as liturgy just after its downfall in 612 BC.

Derivative references to Elijah appear in the Talmud, Mishnah, the New Testament, and the Qur'an.

  • Gershom

    According to the Bible, Gershom was the firstborn son of Moses and Zipporah. The name appears to mean a sojourner there, which the text argues was a reference to Moses' flight from Egypt; biblical scholars regard the name as being essentially the same as Gershon, and it is Gershom rather than Gershon who is sometimes listed by the Book of Chronicles, as a founder of one of the principal Levite factions. Textual scholars attribute the description of Gershom to a different source text to the genealogy involving Gershon.

  • Gershon

  • Amos_(prophet)

    Amos, (Hebrew:עמוס), is a minor prophet in the Old Testament, and the author of the Book of Amos. Before becoming a prophet, Amos was a wealthy sheep herder and a large scale sycamore fig farm. Amos' prior professions and his claim "I am not a prophet nor a son of a prophet" (7:14) indicate that Amos was not from the school of prophets, which Amos claims makes him a true prophet (7:15). His prophetic career began in 750 BCE out of the town of Tekoa, in Judah, south of Jerusalem. Despite being from the southern kingdom of Judah Amos' prophetic message was aimed at the Northern Kingdom of Israel, particularly the cities of Samaria and Bethel.

  • Cush

    A son, probably the eldest, of Ham, and the father of Nimrod (Gen. 10:8; 1 Chr. 1:10). From him the land of Cush seems to have derived its name. The question of the precise locality of the land of Cush has given rise to not a little controversy.

  • Agee

    Agee in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a'-ge (aghe', "fugitive"): A Hararite, father of Shammah, one of David's "three mighty men" (2 Sam 23:11). In 1 Ch 11:34 we read of one "Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite." The parallel in 2 Sam 23:32,33 reads "Jonathan, Shammah the Hararite." If we read "Jonathan (son of) Shammah," then Agee is the grandfather of Jonathan. Some, however, think 1 Ch 11:34 to be correct, and read "Shagee" for "Agee" in 2 Sam 23:11, and for "Shammah" in 2 Sam 23:33. This makes Jonathan and Shammah brothers.

  • Heli

    Heli is a Bible character mentioned in Luke 3:23 whom many Protestant scholars consider is the father of Mary, mother of Jesus. The Lukan genealogy mentions Joseph, not Mary, but does not have the word "son of" in the Greek text, leading to the suggestion that "son-in-law" of Heli is intended: Luke 1:23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, [the son] of Heli, 24 [the son] of Matthat, [the] son of Levi

Under the names בני-חת (BNY-ḤT "children of Heth") or חתי (ḤTY "native of Heth") they are mentioned several times as living in or near Canaan since the time of Abraham (estimated to be between 2000 BC and 1500 BC) to the time of Ezra after the return from the Babylonian exile (around 450 BC). Heth (Hebrew: חֵת, Modern Ḥet Tiberian Ḥēṯ) is said in Genesis to be a son of Canaan, son of Ham, son of Noah.

The sons of Ham are stated, to have been "Cush and Mizraim and Phut and Canaan." Ge 10:6 comp. 1Chr 1:8 Egypt is recognized as the "land of Ham" in the Bible. Ps 78:51; 105:23; 106:22 The other settlements of the sons of Ham are discussed under their respective names. The three most illustrious Hamite nations--the Cushites, the Phoenicians and the Egyptians--were greatly mixed with foreign peoples. Their architecture has a solid grandeur that we look for in vain elsewhere. 2.

  • Jochebed

    According to the Torah, Jochebed was the mother of Aaron, Moses, and Miriam, and the wife of Amram. Jochebed is also described as being related to Amram prior to her marriage to him, although the exact relationship is uncertain; some Greek and Latin manuscripts of the Septuagint state that Jochebed was Amram's father's cousin, and others state that Jochebed was Amram's cousin, but the masoretic text states that she was Amram's aunt[3]—although Jochebed's relationship to Levi is not explicitly stated. In the Apocryphal Testament of Levi, it is stated that Jochebed was born, as a daughter of Levi, when Levi was 64 years old.

  • Ahaz

    Ahaz in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a'-haz ('achaz, "he has grasped," 2 Ki 16; 2 Ch 28; Isa 7:10 ff; Achaz). 1. Name: The name is the same as Jehoahaz; hence appears on Tiglath- pileser's Assyrian inscription of 732 BC as Ia-u-ha-zi. The sacred historians may have dropped the first part of the name in consequence of the character of the king. 2. The Accession: Ahaz was the son of Jotham, king of Judah. He succeeded to the throne at the age of 20 years (according to another reading 25). The chronology of his reign is difficult, as his son Hezekiah is stated to have been 25 years of age when he began to reign 16 years after (2 Ki 18:2). If the accession of Ahaz be placed as early as 743 BC, his grandfather Uzziah, long unable to perform the functions of his office on account of his leprosy (2 Ch 26:21), must still have been alive. (Others date Ahaz later, when Uzziah, for whom Jotham had acted as regent, was already dead.) 3. Early Idolatries: Although so young, Ahaz seems at once to have struck out an independent course wholly opposed to the religious traditions of his nation. His first steps in this direction were the causing to be made and circulated of molten images of the Baalim, and the revival in the valley of Hinnom, south of the city, of the abominations of the worship of Moloch (2 Ch 28:2,3). He is declared to have made his own son "pass through the fire" (2 Ki 16:3); the chronicler puts it even more strongly: he "burnt his children in the fire" (2 Ch 28:3). Other acts of idolatry were to follow... http://www.bible-history.com/isbe/A/AHAZ/

There is a faint possibility that this Ahitub was made high priest by Saul after the extermination of the family of Ahimelech, but it is very unlikely as there are apparently no references supporting this. It is much more likely that Saul had no official high priest after this incident until the end of his reign (see Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, Book VI, Chapter XII, Paragraph 7 .

Not long afterward he died, and his two sons married Moabite women, Ruth and Orpah. Ten years in all were spent in Moab, when the two sons died, and the three widows were left.

  • Adah

    The first wife of either Lamech or of Esau.

  • Adam

    Adam in Smiths Bible Dictionary (red earth), the name given in Scripture to the first man. It apparently has reference to the ground from which he was formed, which is called in Hebrew Adamah. The idea of redness of color seems to be inherent in either word. The creation of man was the work of the sixth day--the last and crowning act of creation. Adam was created (not born) a perfect man in body and spirit, but as innocent and completely inexperienced as a child. The man Adam was placed in a garden which the Lord God had planted "eastward in Eden," for the purpose of dressing it and keeping it. [EDEN] Adam was permitted to eat of the fruit of every tree in the garden but one, which was called ("the tree of the knowledge of good and evil," because it was the test of Adam's obedience. By it Adam could know good and evil int he divine way, through obedience; thus knowing good by experience in resisting temptation and forming a strong and holy character, while he knew evil only by observation and inference. Or he could "know good and evil," in Satan's way, be experiencing the evil and knowing good only by contrast. -ED.) The prohibition to taste the fruit of this tree was enforced by the menace of death. There was also another tree which was called "the tree of life." While Adam was in the garden of Eden, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air were brought to him to be named. After this the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon him, and took one of his ribs from him, which he fashioned into a woman and brought her to the man. At this time they were both described as being naked without the consciousness of shame. By the subtlety of the serpent the woman who was given to be with Adam was beguiled into a violation of the one command which had been imposed upon them. She took of the fruit of the forbidden tree and gave it to her husband. The propriety of its name was immediately shown in the results which followed; self-consciousness was the first-fruits of sin their eyes were opened and they knew that they were naked. Though the curse of Adam's rebellion of necessity fell upon him, yet the very prohibition to eat of the tree of life after his transgression was probably a manifestation of divine mercy, because the greatest malediction of all would have been to have the gift of indestructible life super- added to a state of wretchedness and sin. The divine mercy was also shown in the promise of a deliverer given at the very promise of a deliverer given at the very time the curse was imposed, Ge 3:15 and opening a door of hope to Paradise, regained for him and his descendants. Adam is stated to have lived 930 years. His sons mentioned in Scripture are Cain, Abel and Seth; it is implied, however, that he had others. http://www.bible-history.com/smiths/A/Adam+(1)/

The word is always treated as a common noun in the ordinary Greek copies, being rendered either "brother" or "brothers," or "his brother" or "his brothers"; but this is probably to be taken as an instance of the relative inferiority of the Greek text as compared with the Massoretic Text. See OSTRACA. (1) One of the sons of Beriah, the son of Elpaal, the son of Shaharaim and Hushim, reckoned among the families of Benjamin (1 Ch 8:14). Beriah and Shema are described as `ancestral heads' "of the inhabitants of Aijalon, who put to flight the inhabitants of Gath." (2) A descendant of Jeiel ("the father of Gibeon") and his wife Maacah (1 Ch 8:31; 9:37). King Saul apparently came from the same family (1 Ch 8:30,33; 9:39). (3) One of the men who drove the new cart when David first attempted to bring the ark from the house of Abinadab to Jerusalem (2 Sam 6:3,4; 1 Ch 13:7). In Samuel Uzza and Ahio are called sons of Abinadab. By the most natural understanding of the Biblical data about 100 years had elapsed since the ark was brought to the house; they were sons of that Abinadab in the sense of being his descendants.

  • Haggai

    Haggai was a Jewish prophet during the building of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, and one of the twelve minor prophets in the Hebrew Bible and the author of the Book of Haggai. His name means "my holiday".

  • Avim

    The Avim in the Old Testament were a people dwelling in Hazerim, or "the villages" or "encampments" on the south-west corner of the sea-coast. They were subdued and driven northward by the Caphtorim. A trace of them is afterwards found in Joshua 13:3, where they are called Avites.

  • Girgashites

At times they are not listed along with the other Canaanite tribes inhabiting the Holy Land; according to some, such as Rashi, this is because they left the Land of Israel before the Israelites returned from Egypt.

  • Ahitophel

    Ahithophel in Wikipedia ("Brother of Insipidity", or "Impiety") was a counselor of King David and a man greatly renowned for his sagacity. At the time of Absalom's revolt he deserted David (Psalm. 41:9; 55:12-14) and espoused the cause of Absalom (2 Samuel 15:12). David sent his old friend Hushai back to Absalom, in order that he might counteract the counsel of Ahitophel (2 Sam. 15:31-37). Ahitophel, seeing that his good advice against David had not been followed due to Hushai's influence, correctly predicted that the revolt would fail. He then left the camp of Absalom at once. He returned to Giloh, his native place, and after arranging his worldly affairs, hanged himself, and was buried in the sepulcher of his fathers (2 Sam. 17:1-23). It would seem from a conjunction of II Sam, 23:34, and 11:3, that Ahitophel was the grandfather of Bathsheba, and it has been suggested, as an explanation of his conduct towards David, that he had kept a secret grudge against the King for the way he had treated Bathsheba, and her first husband, Urias. This, or some motive of ambition, would be in keeping with the haughty character of Ahitophel... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahithophel

  • Ahitub

    Ahitub in Wikipedia brother of goodness = good. A few people in the Bible have this name: (1.) The son of Phinehas, grandson of Eli, and brother of Ichabod. On the death of his grandfather Eli he most likely succeeded to the office of high priest, and would have been succeeded by his son Ahijah (references to Ahitub as the father of are in 1 Sam. 14:3; 22:9, 11, 12, 20). Ahijah (also spelled Ahiah), who is listed as his son in 1 Samuel 14:2-3, 18-19 , may have been the same person as Ahimelech (1 Samuel 22:9-20 ), or he may have been another son of Ahitub (probably an elder son if this was the case). Preceded by Eli High Priest of Israel Succeeded by Ahijah (2.) The father of Zadok (2 Sam. 8:15-17 ). This Ahitub was the son of Amariah, who was the son of Meraioth, who was the son of Zerahiah, who was the son of Uzzi, who was the son of Bukki, who was the son of Abishua, who was the son of Phinehas, who was the son of Eleazar, who was the son of Aaron (1 Chronicles 6:3-8 ). There is a faint possibility that this Ahitub was made high priest by Saul after the extermination of the family of Ahimelech, but it is very unlikely as there are apparently no references supporting this. It is much more likely that Saul had no official high priest after this incident until the end of his reign (see Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, Book VI, Chapter XII, Paragraph 7 . (3.) A priestly descendant through the priestly line of the first Zadok. This Ahitub is mentioned in 1 Chronicles 6:11- 12 . To make matters a bit more confusing, this Ahitub also had a son (or probably grandson) by the name of Zadok. This Ahitub may have been high priest in the later time of the kings, but he also may not have been a high priest. He did become the ancestor of later high priests, which served during the fall of Jerusalem and post-exile. (4.) An ancestor of a person mentioned in Nehemiah 11:11 . This person might be one of the three prementioned persons, but probably is not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahitub

    Elkanah was, according to the Books of Samuel, the husband of Hannah, and the father of her children including her first, Samuel. Elkanah is a bigamist, his other wife, less favoured but bearing more children, was named Peninnah. The names of Elkanah's other children apart from Samuel are not given. Elkanah plays only a minor role in the narrative, and is mostly a supporting character to Eli, Hannah, and Samuel. Elkanah was the son of Jeroham, who was the son of Elihu, who was the son of Tohu, who was the son of Zuph. Elkanah is described as having originated from Zuph, specifically Ramathaim-Zophim, which was part of the tribal lands of Ephraim; however, the Books of Chronicles state that he was a Levite living amongst Ephraim rather than a member of Ephraim itself.[1]

    There are three kings designated by this name in Scripture. (1.) The father of Darius the Mede, mentioned in Dan. 9:1. This was probably the Cyaxares I. known by this name in profane history, the king of Media and the conqueror of Nineveh. (2.) The king mentioned in Ezra 4:6, probably the Cambyses of profane history, the son and successor of Cyrus (B.C. 529). (3.) The son of Darius Hystaspes, the king named in the Book of Esther. He ruled over the kingdoms of Persia, Media, and Babylonia, "from India to Ethiopia." This was in all probability the Xerxes of profane history, who succeeded his father Darius (B.C. 485). In the LXX. version of the Book of Esther the name Artaxerxes occurs for Ahasuerus. He reigned for twenty-one years (B.C. 486-465). He invaded Greece with an army, it is said, of more than 2,000,000 soldiers, only 5,000 of whom returned with him. Leonidas, with his famous 300, arrested his progress at the Pass of Thermopylae, and then he was defeated disastrously by Themistocles at Salamis. It was after his return from this invasion that Esther was chosen as his queen. http://www.bible-history.com/eastons/A/Ahasuerus/

  • Goliath

    The giant of Gath, and champion of the Philistine army (1 Sam 17:4-23; 21:9; 22:10; 2 Sam 21:19; 1 Ch 20:5 ff). He defied the armies of Israel, challenging anyone to meet him in single combat while the two armies faced each other at Ephesdammim. He was slain by the youthful David. Goliath was almost certainly not of Philistine blood, but belonged to one of the races of giants, or aboriginal tribes, such as the Anakim, Avvim, Rephaim, etc. The Avvim had lived at Philistia, and most probably the giant was of that race. His size was most extraordinary. If a cubit was about 21 inches, he was over 11 feet in height; if about 18 inches, he was over 9 feet in height. The enormous weight of his armor would seem to require the larger cubit. This height probably included his full length in armor, helmet and all. In either case he is the largest man known to history. His sword was wielded by David to slay him and afterward carried about in his wanderings, so it could not have been excessively heavy. The story of his encounter with David is graphic, and the boasts of the two champions were perfectly in keeping with single combats in the Orient.

"The word of the Lord came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee." The correspondence and contrast in the life of our blessed Lord will not fail to be remembered. After He had passed judgment upon the moral condition of the blind leaders of the blind, He "went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon," and there, having exposed the real state of the heart of man, as seen in His professing people, He revealed the heart of God to a poor Canaanitish woman who was destitute of all claim upon His goodness and mercy. (Matt. 15.) Elijah was sent to the same region to be sustained, and also to become the channel of God's grace, and even of resurrection power.

  • Abimelech

    Abimelech or Avimelech was a common name of the Philistine kings. Abimelech was most prominently the name of a king of Gerar who is mentioned in two of the three wife-sister narratives in Genesis. The Haggada identifies them as separate people, the second being the first Abimelech's son, and that his original name was Benmelech ("son of the King") but changed his name to his father's. At the time of Abimelech, there was an Egyptian governor of Tyre named Abimilki.

  • Abimelech

    In the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible, Abimelech[pronunciation?] (אֲבִימָלֶךְ ) was a son of the great judge Gideon (Judges 9:1); thus his name אֲבִימֶלֶךְ / אֲבִימָלֶךְ can best be interpreted "my father, the king". "Abimelech", a name claiming the inherited right to rule, was also a common name of the Philistine kings. He was, however, merely the son of Gideon's concubine, and to make good his claim to rule over Manasseh, he resorted to force. He put to death his 70 half-brothers, aided by his mother's relatives, "on one stone" at Ophrah. Jotham, the youngest brother, escaped, however. Abimelech ruled just three years in Shechem after the death of his father (Judges 8:33-9:6). According to Judges 9:6, he was made "king". According to the Bible, he was an unprincipled, ambitious ruler, often engaged in war with his own subjects. When engaged in reducing the town of Thebez, which had revolted, he was struck on the head by a mill-stone, thrown by the hand of a woman from the wall above. Realizing that the wound was mortal, he ordered his armor-bearer to thrust him through with his sword, so that it might not be said he had perished by the hand of a woman (Judges 9:50-57). [edit]

    Abishai was the eldest son of Zeruiah, sister of the Biblical King David. His name means father of (i.e. desirous of) a gift. He was the brother of Joab and Asahel (2 Sam 2:18; 1 Chr 2:16), and a military leader under David. Abishai was the only one who accompanied David when he went to the camp of Saul and took the spear and water bottle from Saul as he slept (1 Sam 26:5-12). He had the command of one of the three divisions of David's army at the battle with Absalom (2 Sam 18:2,5,12). He was the commander of the second rank of the three "mighty men" (2 Sam 23:18,19; 1 Chr 11:20,21). On one occasion, he withstood 300 men and slew them with his own spear (2 Sam 23:18). Abishai was involved in David's battle with the Philistine giant Ishbi-benob, who threatened David's life; depending on the exact reading, Abishai either saved David by slaying the giant, or else helped David slay him (2 Sam 21:15-17). Some Jewish sources interpret this latter option as meaning Abishai's prayers saved David.

  • Gomer

    Gomer is also the name of the adulterous wife of the prophet Hosea, mentioned in the Hebrew Bible's Book of Hosea. Some analysts, following Felix Ernst Peiser, have suggested that this marriage is really a figurative or prophetic reference to a union between the "lost tribes of Israel" with the above-mentioned people of Gomer, following the Assyrian deportation. The relationship between Hosea and Gomer has been posited to be a parallel to the relationship between God and Israel. Even though Gomer runs away from Hosea and sleeps with another man, he loves her anyway and forgives her. Likewise, even though the people of Israel worshiped other gods, God continued to love them and did not abandon his covenant with them.

  • Jotham

    Jotham, "God is perfect" or "God is complete"; Greek: Ιωαθαμ; Latin: Joatham) was the youngest of Gideon's seventy sons. He escaped when the rest were put to death by the order of Abimelech (Judges 9:5). When "the citizens of Shechem and the whole house of Millo" were gathered together "by the plain of the pillar" (i.e., the stone set up by Joshua, 24:26; compare Genesis 35:4) "that was in Shechem, to make Abimelech king," from one of the heights of Mount Gerizim he protested against their doing so in the earliest parable, that of the bramble-king. This parable is often repeated at Tu Bishvat and is famous in Israel. His words then spoken were prophetic. There came a recoil in the feelings of the people toward Abimelech, and then a terrible revenge, in which many were slain and the city of Shechem was destroyed by Abimelech (Judg. 9:45). Having delivered his warning, Jotham fled to Beer from the vengeance of Abimelech (9:7-21).

The LXX, Syriac, and Arabic, however, refer to the name as Barak, instead of Bedan; and the two latter versions refer to Samson, instead of Samuel.

    In Jericho, a prostitute (Biblical commentator Rashi claims she was a food saleswoman) named Rahab assisted Israelite spies by hiding them and telling the local authorities that she did not know where they went. The spies, in return for her protection, promised to save her and her family during the planned military invasion as long as she fulfilled her part of the deal by keeping the details of the contact with them secret and leaving a sign on her residence that would be a marker for the advancing soldiers to avoid. She kept her word by hiding the spies when the city guard came to her house looking for them; the Israelites kept their word by sparing her family from the general massacre after taking the city: they recognized Rahab's house by a red cord hanging from her window. After the people of Israel conquered Canaan, she left prostitution, joined the Jewish people, and became a respectable married woman. She is the subject of a discussion in one section of the Talmud.

The king of Israel suspected in this some evil design against him, and tore his clothes. When the prophet Elisha heard about this, he sent for Naaman. Naaman was then cured of leprosy by dipping himself seven times in the Jordan River, according to the word of Elisha. Naaman also renounces Rimmon after being cured by Elisha.

  • Athaliah

    Athaliah was the queen of Judah during the reign of King Jehoram, and later became sole ruler of Judah for six years. Jehoram, a descendant of King David, actively promoted the worship of YHWH in his country, but he tolerated Athaliah's worship of Baal. After Jehoram's death, their son Ahaziah became Judah's king with Athaliah acting as queen mother. She used her power in that role to establish the worship of Baal in Judah after Ahaziah was killed in a state visit to Israel along with the then-king of Israel, also named Jehoram, who was Athaliah's brother (or possibly nephew). Jehu assassinated them both in Yahweh's name and had Athaliah's entire extended family in Israel put to death. Athaliah, as queen of Judah, tried to have all possible successors to Ahaziah executed; one, however,a grandson of hers named Joash was rescued from the purge by Jehosheba, Ahaziah's sister, and was raised in secret by the priest Jehoiada. Six years later, Athaliah was surprised when Jehoiada revealed Joash and proclaimed him king of Judah. She rushed to stop this rebellion, but was captured and executed.

  • Sidon
  • Adino

    Adino in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ad'-i-no, a-di'-no (`adhino, "his adorned one"): The senior of David's "mighty men." "Josheb-basshebeth a Tahchemonite, chief of the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite, against eight hundred slain at one time" (2 Sam 23:8). This very exact rendering makes it evident even to an English reader that the text is imperfect. Ginsburg offers a corrected form taken substantially from the parallel passage in 1 Ch 11:11: "Jashobeam a son of a Hachmonite, chief of the captains; he lifted up his spear." This is plausible, and is very generally accepted, and eliminates the names Adino and Eznite, which do not occur elsewhere in the Bible. Some of the facts are against this. The Septuagint has the names Adino and Eznite. The Latin finds no proper names in the passage, but so translates the words as to presuppose the Hebrew text as we have it. It may be a case for suspended judgment. The texts concerning David's mighty men are fragmentary both in Samuel and in Chronicles. If they were more complete they would perhaps make it clear that the three seniors were comrades of David at Pas-dammim, Ephes-dammim (1 Ch 11:13; 1 Sam 17:1); and that we have in them additional details concerning that battle. The record says that on the death of Goliath the Philistines fled and the Israelites pursued (1 Sam 17:52 ff), but it is not improbable that during the retreat portions of the Philistine force rallied, so that there was strenuous fighting.

  • Beeri

    Beeri in Wikipedia was the father of the prophet Hosea. Jewish tradition says that he only uttered a few words of prophecy, and as they were insufficient to be embodied in a book by themselves they were incorporated within the book of Isaiah, viz., verses 19 and 20 of the 8th chapter. As such, Beeri is considered a prophet in Judaism. Another Beeri was the father of Judith, one of the wives of Esau (Genesis 26:34), the same as Adah (Gen. 36:2). In Hebrew, the word "Be'e'ri" literally means "my well" as in, a well of water—an important source of life in the desert. He is also considered holy by Muslims.

  • Adonijah

    Adonijah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ad-o-ni'-ja ('adhoniyahu or 'adhoniyah, "my lord is Yahweh"): (1) The son of David and Haggith, the forth of David's sons, born in Hebron after David became king of Judah, principally known for his attempt to become king instead of Solomon (2 Sam 3:4; 1 Ch 3:2; 1 Ki 1 and 2). The record gives no details concerning Chileab, the son of David and Abigail. Leaving him out, Adonijah was the oldest living son of David, after the death of Amnon and Absalom. In treating the record it has been needlessly obscured by neglecting or distorting the time data. It says that the rebellion of Absalom broke out "at an end of forty years" (2 Sam 15:7). The natural meaning is not forty years after the last-mentioned preceding date, but at the close of the fortieth calendar year of the reign of David. Since David reigned 40 1/2 years (2 Sam 5:4,5), the close of his fortieth calendar year was the beginning of has last year. That the date intended was at the beginning of a vernal year is confirmed by the references to the season (2 Sam 17:19,28). Instead of giving this number Josephus says that 4 years had elapsed since the last preceding date, which is very likely correct...

    Almodad in Wikipedia was a descendant of Noah and the first named son of Joktan in Genesis 10:26 and 1 Chronicles 1:20 . While the Bible has no further history regarding Almodad, this patriarch is considered to be the founder of an Arabian tribe in "Arabia Felix".[1] This is based on the identification of Joktan's other sons, such as Sheba and Havilah, who are both identified as coming from that region.[2] According to Easton's Bible Dictionary "Almodad" means "immeasurable", however it has also been translated as "not measured",[3] "measurer",[4] "measure of God",[5] "the beloved," or, "God is beloved",[6] "God is love",[7] and "God is a friend".[8][9] Many translations and scholarly works use "Elmodad", including Josephus,[10] Douay Rheims Bible[11] and the Targum Ps.- Jonathan, which elaborates Gen 10:26 and says "begot Elmodad, who measured the earth with cords. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almodad

While Adonijah is usually described in the Bible as "the son of Haggith," there is no suggestion that his mother was involved in his attempt to gain the throne, or with his (likely politically motivated) attempt to take Abishag, his father's concubine.

According to Genesis 11 Terah had three sons: Abram; Haran; and Nahor; according to Genesis 20:12, Sarah, Abraham's wife, was his half-sister (Terah's daughter by a wife other than Abraham's mother). He lived in "Ur of the Chaldees," where his son Haran died, leaving behind his son Lot. Terah later migrated with Abraham (probably his youngest son) and Lot (his grandson), together with their families, from Ur. He intended to go with them to Canaan but he stayed in Harran, where he died at the age of 205 years (Genesis 11:24-32). Abram moved his family out of Harran when Terah was 145 years old (Gen 11:31,32; Acts 7:4). The Book of Joshua reports that Terah worshipped other gods (Josh. 24:2).

    The Zarqa River is identified with the biblical river Jabbok. The Biblical Jacob crossed the Jabbok on his way back to Canaan, after leaving Harran. It leads west into the Sukkot Valley, from where one crosses over the Jordan and can easily reach Shechem, as Jacob eventually did. The biblical cities of Zaretan and Adam are also at the mouth of the valley. The river is first mentioned in connection with the meeting of Jacob and Esau, and with the struggle of Jacob with the angel (Genesis 32:23 et seq.). It was the boundary separating the territory of Reuben and Gad from that of Ammon, the latter being described as lying along the Jabbok (Numbers 21:24; Deuteronomy 2:37, 3:16; Joshua 12:2). The territory of Sihon is described as extending "from Arnon unto Jabbok" (Numbers 21:24), and it was reclaimed later by the King of Ammon (Judges 11:13, 22). Eusebius[4] places the river between Gerasa and Philadelphia.

Rather than choosing a great leader or king, God chooses Abraham, an elderly shepherd from Mesopotamia, as the way to establish his Covenant with mankind ... Abraham is a man of great faith. After his calling he continues to believe in God even when He seems to have abandoned him. For Abraham, God's greatest promise is that his family will continue through the line of Isaac, Abraham's favourite son.

Houbraken felt Aelbert had neater brush strokes and Benjamin showed the rough approach of his teacher. According to the RKD, Houbraken was mistaken about the family, and Benjamin and Jacob were both born in Dordrecht as the sons of a glasspainter from Venlo named Gerrit Gerritsz Cuyp. Benjamin learned to paint from his older half-brother, Jacob Gerritsz Cuyp. He was therefore the uncle, not the cousin, of the much more famous Aelbert Cuyp.

Lodovico Cardi was born at Villa Castelvecchio di Cigoli, in Tuscany, whence the name by which he is commonly known. Initially, Cigoli trained in Florence under the fervid mannerist Alessandro Allori. Later, influenced by the most prominent of the Contra-Maniera painters, Santi di Tito, as well as by Barocci, Cigoli shed the shackles of mannerism and infused his later paintings with an expressionism often lacking from 16th century Florentine painting.

  • Esau_and_Jacob_Presented_to_Isaac

    Looks like a happy family now. But there was a problem - both parents played favorites. Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau while Rebekah loved Jacob. As their family story unfolded, we can see problems of sibling rivalry. First, they struggled over the issue of birthright (Genesis 25: 29-34). Esau ended up selling his birthright to Jacob in exchange for some bread and lentil stew. Then, when old, blind Isaac called for Esau to pass on to him his blessings before he dies, Jacob, through the prodding of Rebekah, beats Esau to the blessing by pretending to be Esau and tricking his father, Isaac (Genesis 27:1-40). How remorseful and bitter Esau was for having lost to Jacob his birthright and his father's blessings, too. Esau was so angry at Jacob that he promised to kill his brother after his father dies. Rebekah knew about it and told Jacob to flee with Isaac's consent causing them (mother and son and brothers) to be separated from each other for a long, long time. It was only after 20 years that both brothers reconciled. How sad to have spent 20 years away from family because of sibling rivalry!

    Jacob's course of suffering for 21 years in Haran can be seen as a model for all those who must endure exile and privation. His course of service to Laban is a model for those who wish to win the respect and trust of their oppressors. His wrestling with the angel shows that a man of strong faith can defeat the spiritual forces of darkness and the demons of his own mind. Most importantly, his sincere humility in front of his brother Esau—dramatically reversing the story of Cain and Abel—is the first recorded example of a man who successfully practiced the dictum "love your enemy." It is a pattern for anyone to restore a damaged relationship and bring about reconciliation with an enemy, attaining the goal of peace through unselfish love. It can also be applied to groups and even nations.

    In this story, Jacob demonstrates his role as trickster as he tricks his brother out of his birthright and his father's blessing, tricks his father into blessing him instead of Esau, tricks his uncle out of his best cattle , and attempts to trick his brother again when they meet years later. He is also, in turn, tricked by his uncle Laban into serving fourteen years for Rachel when Laban secretly presents Jacob first with Leah.

    I was really struck by frailty and fleshiness of the figures. Given the C17th taste for larger women, it’s not surprising that Eve doesn’t look like something from Cranach. But Adam looks positively middle-aged. In fact, even though he’s still reaching towards the apple, he looks fallen. And I think it makes for a surprisingly touching image. - from http://heracliteanfire.net/2010/12/05/harrys-advent-calendar-of-paintings-day-5-jordaens/

    Jacob was forced to flee his family after receiving the blessing of God from his father, Isaac. He ran as a result of his broken relationship with his brother, Esau, who threatened to kill him. He was alone after leaving his family and was sleeping in the wilderness area at Bethel. It is here that Jacob encountered God personally for the very first time. He had a dream in which Heaven was opened up to him. The Lord spoke to him there and gave him a promise to give him the very land on which he was lying.

In his frustration, Moses struck the rock, and water appeared and enabled the Israelites to drink.

  • Landscape with Ruth and Boaz

    Joseph Anton Koch spent most of his life in Rome where he became a pivotal figure in 19th-century German landscape painting.Combining French classical traditions with an emerging Romanticism, the genre flowered anew in Koch’s hands. Constructing a “heroic” landscape in which human figures are presented in nature as an expression of eternal majesty and grandeur, Koch transformed natural elements into idyllic, often stagelike spatial structures. A radiant, eternally blue sky symbolizes the timeless, universal validity of nature, God’s creation. The Old Testament tale of Ruth and Boaz depicted here tells the story of how the widowed Ruth faithfully accompanied her mother-in-law, Naomi, back to her homeland where, while gleaning wheat, she met and later married the owner of the fields, Boaz. This story of love and family devotion would have appealed to the German nationalist sentiment that emphasized family virtues.

In the text as we have it, the being with which Jacob wrestles is variously described as an angel, a man, or a god. Some would see here different source texts, while other readings are sensitive to the fluid language of myth. In any case, the being says his name is the same as where the fight takes place, which Jacob names Peniel or Penuel or Phanuel.The event occurs during Jacob's journey back to Canaan.

  • David and Bathsheba
  • David

    The story of David and Goliath comes from 1 Samuel 17. The Israelites are fighting the Philistines, whose best warrior - Goliath - repeatedly offers to meet the Israelites' best warrior in man-to-man combat to decide the whole battle. None of the trained Israelite soldiers is brave enough to fight the giant Goliath, until David - a shepherd boy who is too young to be a soldier - accepts the challenge. Saul, the Israelite leader, offers David armor and weapons, but the boy is untrained and refuses them. Instead, he goes out with his slingshot, and confronts the enemy. He hits Goliath in the head with a stone, knocking the giant down, and then grabs Goliath's sword and cuts off his head. The Philistines honorably retired as pacted and the Israelites are saved. David's special strength comes from God, and the story illustrates the triumph of good over evil.[1]

  • The Binding of Isaac

    The Binding of Isaac is mentioned in the New Testament Book of Hebrews among many acts of faith recorded in the Old Testament: By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense. (Hebrews 11:17–19, NKJV)

  • Chichester Psalms

    Chichester Psalms is a choral work by Leonard Bernstein for boy treble or countertenor, solo quartet, choir and orchestra (3 trumpets in B♭, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion [7-8 players], 2 harps, and strings). A reduction written by the composer pared down the orchestral performance forces to organ, one harp, and percussion. Bernstein stated explicitly in his writing that the part for countertenor may be sung by either a countertenor or a boy soprano, but never by a woman. This was to reinforce the liturgical meaning of the passage sung, perhaps to suggest that the 23rd Psalm, a "Psalm of David" from the Hebrew Bible, was to be heard as if sung by the boy David himself. The text was arranged by Bernstein from the psalms in the original Hebrew. Part 1 uses Psalms 100 and 108, Part 2 uses 2 and 23 and Part 3 uses 131 and 133.

  • Civil Rights March on Washington D.C.

    The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (or "The Great March on Washington," as styled in a sound recording released after the event)was one of the largest political rallies for human rights in United States history and called for civil and economic rights for African Americans. It took place in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, August 28, 1963. Martin Luther King, Jr., standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech advocating racial harmony during the march. The march was organized by a group of civil rights, labor, and religious organizations, under the theme "jobs, and freedom."[4] Estimates of the number of participants varied from 200,000 (police) to over 300,000 (leaders of the march). Observers estimated that 75–80% of the marchers were black and the rest were white and non-black minorities. The march is widely credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965).

  • David and Abigail

    Antonio Molinari (January 21, 1655 – February 3, 1704) was an Italian painter of the Baroque era in Venice. Son of a painter, he apprenticed with Antonio Zanchi in Venice. He was strongly influenced by the vigorous and athletic paintings of Neapolitan painters like Luca Giordano. He typically painted tumultuous narratives of mythology and religion in large canvases. This would influence his pupil (1697–1703), Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, and his grand manner style. Among his works are the Feeding of the Five Thousand (1690; San Pantalon, Venice) and the Death of Uzzah (c. 1695; Santa Maria degli Angeli in Murano); Fight of Centaurs and Lapiths (c. 1698, Ca' Rezzonico).

    The story is recounted in 1Kings 3:16-28. Two young women who lived in the same house and who both had an infant son came to Solomon for a judgement. One of the women claimed that the other, after accidentally smothering her own son while sleeping, had exchanged the two children to make it appear that the living child was hers. The other woman denied this and so both women claimed to be the mother of the living son and said that the dead boy belonged to the other. After some deliberation, King Solomon called for a sword to be brought before him. He declared that there is only one fair solution: the live son must be split in two, each woman receiving half of the child. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy's true mother cried out, "Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!" However, the liar, in her bitter jealousy, exclaimed, "It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!" Solomon instantly gave the live baby to the real mother, realizing that the true mother's instincts were to protect her child, while the liar revealed that she did not truly love the child. The reputation of the king greatly increased when all the people of Israel heard of this wise judgment.

  • Highway_61_Revisited

    Highway 61 Revisited is the sixth studio album by singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. It was released in August 1965 by Columbia Records. On his previous album, Bringing It All Back Home, Dylan devoted Side One of the album to songs accompanied by an electric rock band, and Side Two to solo acoustic numbers. For Highway 61 Revisited, Dylan used rock backing on every track, except for the closing 11-minute acoustic song, "Desolation Row". Critics have written that Dylan's ability to combine driving, complex, blues-based rock music with the power of poetry made Highway 61 Revisited one of the most influential albums ever recorded.

    Wearing a magnificent silk robe with an ermine lining, King Solomon kneels and makes an offering to a pagan idol. One of his wives appears to instruct him while several other concubines, lavishly dressed, stand behind. A group of men in elaborate headpieces and rich finery watch Solomon and the women from the left with displeasure, as if they know that Solomon's idol worship will eventually destroy his kingdom. The Temple of Jerusalem, which was erected under the King's reign, is under construction in the background. Solomon was known for his proverbial wisdom and great wealth. In his later years he was drawn more and more to the pagan cults, which were thought to have been introduced into Israel by the women who came from neighboring kingdoms to join his large harem. This subject was popular in Protestant countries in the 1600s because it reflected Protestant disapproval of the Catholic Church's use of religious imagery, a practice that Protestants viewed as idolatrous.

    The Prodigal Son, also known as Two Sons, Lost Son and Prodigal Father is one of the parables of Jesus. It appears in only one of the Canonical gospels of the New Testament. According to the Gospel of Luke (Luke 15:11-32), a father, in response to his demands, gives the younger of his two sons his inheritance before he dies. The younger son, after wasting his fortune (the word 'prodigal' means 'wastefully extravagant'), repents and returns home, where the father holds a feast to celebrate his return. The older son refuses to participate, stating that in all the time the son has worked for the father, he did not even give him a goat to celebrate with his friends. His father reminds the older son that everything the father has is the older son's, but that they should still celebrate the return of the younger son as he has come back to them. It is the third and final part of a cycle on redemption, following the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin. In Western Catholic tradition, this parable is usually read on the third Sunday of Lent, while in the Eastern Orthodox Church it is read on the Sunday of the Prodigal Son.

  • The_Reconciliation_of_Jacob_and_Esau

    Esau's spirit of revenge, however, was apparently appeased by Jacob's bounteous gifts of camels, goats and flocks. Their reunion was an emotional one. Esau offered to accompany them on their way back to Israel, but Jacob protested that his children were still young and tender (born 6 to 13 years prior in the narrative); Jacob suggested eventually catching up with Esau at Mount Seir. According to the Sages, this was a prophetic reference to the End of Days, when Jacob's descendants will come to Mount Seir, the home of Edom, to deliver judgment against Esau's descendants for persecuting them throughout the millennia (see Obadiah 1:21). Jacob actually diverted himself to Succoth and was not recorded as rejoining Esau until, at Machpelah, the two bury their father Isaac, who lived to 180 and was 60 years older than them.

The woman at top left, barely visible, is likely the mother,[4] while the seated man, whose dress implies wealth, may be an advisor to the estate or a tax collector. The standing man at centre is likely a servant.

  • 스스로 있는 자

    그래서 그들에게 하나님의 이름을 어떻게 소개해야 되느냐고 물은 모세의 질문에 하나님은 “나는 스스로 있는 자”라고 대답하셨다. 이 대답만으로 따지면 하나님의 이름은 “스스로 있는 자”가 된다. 그러나 사실은 하나님의 대답은 그것이 아니었다. 성경 번역을 그렇게 했을 뿐이다.
    히브리 원어적으로 하나님이 가르쳐 주신 자신의 이름은 영어식으로 하면 주어와 Be 동사 뿐으로 그냥 “I am”이었다. 말이 안 되는 이름이다. 영어로 “I am”이라고 말하는 경우란 단순히 내가 존재한다거나, 어떤 질문에 대한 긍정의 의미밖에 없다.
    . 성경 번역가들은 히브리 원어의 하나님이 말씀하신 자신의 이름 “I am”을 그대로 살리면서 제대로 된 문장을 만들려고 그 이름을 보어의 위치에 넣은 것이 “I am who I am”이 된 것이고 그것을 번역하면 “나는 스스로 있는 자”가 된다.
    혹시라도 오해를 말아야 할 것은 이 부분의 번역 자체가 잘못된 것은 절대 아니다. 가장 훌륭하고도 완전한 번역이다. 하나님의 하나님 다우심을 이 만큼 잘 표현한 말도 없다. 스스로 있는 자란 “홀로 하나”(딤전1:17)이신 분으로 피조물이 아니라 창조주라는 말이다.

    37. 페리토메(περιτομή) : 할례 ‘또 그 안에서 너희가 손으로 하지 아니한 할례를 받았으니 곧 육의 몸을 벗는 것이요 그리스도의 할례니라’(골2:11) ‘할례’라고 번역된 헬라어 단어는 ‘페리토메’ (περιτομή)이며, 동사형은 ‘둥글게 자르다, 할례를 행하다’라는 뜻을 가지 ‘페리템노’ (περιτέμνω)이다. 그리고 ‘페리템노’ (περιτέμνω)는 ‘주위에, 통해서, 대하여, 가까이’라는 뜻의 전치사 ‘페리’(περι)와 ‘단번에 잘게 자를 수 있다는 뜻에서 더 날까로운’(히4:12)의 의미를 가진 ‘토모테로스’(τομώτερος )의 합성어에서 파생되었다. ‘할례’ (페리토메 : περιτομή)는 남자 성기 귀두 위에 덮여 있는 표피를 제거하는 것이다. 소위 손으로 하는 할례이다. 그런데 골로새서 2장 11절에서는 성도들을 향하여 손으로 하지 아니한 할례 곧 육의 몸을 벗는 것인 그리스도의 할례를 받았다고 기록하고 있다. 도대체 할례가 가지고 있는 성경적 의미가 무었일까? 구약 히브리어 성경을 헬라어로 번역해 놓은 70인역에서 ‘페리토메’(περιτομή)로 번역한 히브리어 단어가 ‘물라’(הלומ)이며 동사형은 ‘물’(לומ)이다. 먼저 ‘물’(לומ)은 기본적으로 ‘할례를 베풀다, 자르다, 베임을 당하다, 베어 쓰러뜨리다, 끊어버리다’는 의미를 가지고 있으며, 알파벳이 가지고 있는 음가에 따라 파자하면 ‘진리와 연합되어 그 진리와 함께 위로 향하다’라는 의미이다. 그리고 명사형인 ‘물라’(הלומ)를 파자하면 ‘진리와 연합되어 그 진리와 함께 살아 가는 실존’이라는 의미를 가지고 있다. ‘너희 중 남자는 다 할례를 받으라 이것이 나와 너희와 너희 후손 사이에 지킬 내 언약이니라. 너희는 포피를 베어라 이것이 나와 너희 사이의 언약의 표징이니라’(창17:10,11) ‘할례’ (περιτομή) 를 받으라는 말씀은 ‘너희에게 있는 생명을 완전히 끊어버리라’는 말씀을 상징하고 있다. 그러면서 ‘너희 안에는 생명이 없으며 너희가 가지고 있다고 생각하는 그 생명은 진짜 생명이 아니다’라는 말씀을 하고 있는 것이다. 더 나아가 ‘그 생명은 내가 주겠다’라는 언약의 말씀도 들어있는 것이다. 우리에게 생명 주시겠다고 약속하신 하나님께서는 선악의 주체가 되어 생명아닌 것에 목숨걸고 살아가는 죽음 그 자체인 나를 살리려 약속의 후손 예수를 보내주셨다. 그리고 예수님께서 내가 되어 언약의 십자가에서 죽으심으로 하나님의 언약을 성취하신 것이다. 그래서 이제는 더 이상 율법의 내가 아닌 그리스도로 살게 하신 것이다(갈2:20). 언약의 십자가에서 예수님과 함께 하나님 처럼의 내가 다나토스의 죽음으로 완전히 죽어 버린 것, 이것이 바로 그리스도로 할례 받았다는 의미인 것이다. 그러므로 성도에게 있어서 ‘할례’ (περιτομή) 란 하나님의 언약의 말씀에 따라 육이 죽고 영으로 살아 진리와 연합되어 그 진리와 함께 살아 가는 성도의 실존인 것이다.

    48. 스타우로스(σταυρός): 십자가 ‘이에 예수께서 제자들에게 이르시되 누구든지 나를 따라오려거든 자기를 부인하고 자기 십자가를 지고 나를 따를 것이니라’(마16:24) ‘십자가’로 번역된 헬라어 단어 ‘스타우로스’(σταυρός)는 위로 향한 막대기, 기둥을 말하는 ‘곧은 기둥’, 최고형을 집행하는 도구로서 ‘십자가’, 상징적으로 ‘죽음의 위협에 노출됨, 자기부인’ 그리고 함축적으로 ‘그리스도의 속죄’라는 광범위한 의미로 사용되어지고 있다. 오늘날 교회에서의 ‘십자가’에 대한 이해는 ‘우리의 죄를 대속하시기 위해서 예수님이 당했던 그 당시 최고형을 집행할 때 사용한 십자가’를 말하며 ‘우리를 향한 하나님의 사랑의 증표, 예수님의 대속의 죽음, 구원의 능력, 기독교인의 자랑의 상징물’로써 이해되고 있다. 그래서 ‘십자가’ 자체가 실제로 어떤 능력을 가진 것처럼 오해하여 우상(εἴδωλον)처럼 떠받들기도 하는 것이 현실이다. 그렇게 ‘십자가’(스타우로스 : σταυρός)라는 단어는 알게 모르게 그 단어가 가지고 있는 본래의 의미를 모른 채 왜곡되어 사용되는 단어도 없을 것이다. ‘십자가’로 불리워지는 ‘스타우로스’(σταυρός)의 정확한 의미를 알기 위해서는 그 단어의 유래가 되는 ‘히스테미’(ἵστημι)라는 단어를 살표 보아야 한다. ‘히스테미’(ἵστημι)는 기본적으로 ‘서게 하다, 두다, 놓다, 세우다, 옆이나 가까이 서다, 확고한 마음을 가지다, 권리를 포기하지 않다’라는 의미를 가지고 있다. 여기서 ‘히스테미’(ἵστημι)가 가지고 있는 ‘서다’라는 의미는 수동태와 수평적인 위치를 의미하는 것으로써 ‘배치하다, 세우다, 놓다, 정박하다, 수립하다’라는 뜻의 ‘티데미’(τίθημι)와 비교하여 능동적이며 수직적 위치로의 ‘세워짐’의 말하는 것이다. 좀더 부연 설명하면, 하나님의 창조 (בָּרָא)의 목적은 하나님께서 창조하여 배열해 놓은(티데미 : τίθημι)우리 눈에 보이는 이 세상 (호 코스모스 : ὁ κόσμος)의 모든 것들을 통하여 그 속에 담겨진 내용 즉, 말씀으로 창조된 만물 가운데 숨겨진 하나님이 마음인 말씀을 깨달아 그 언약의 말씀으로 굳게 세워지도록(히스테미 : ἵστημι)하는 것이며, 우리를성전 (אב) 삼으시는 것이고(고전3:16). 성도에게 있어서 ‘스타우로스’(σταυρός)는 더 이상 어떤 것을 상징하는 상징물이 아니라 하나님의 언약의 말씀이며, 그 말씀 앞에 선악의 주체로서 하나님 처럼의 내가 죽는 자기부인의 자리이고 더 나아가 그 말씀이 되어 말씀이신 그리스도로 사는(갈2:20)것이다. 그래서 성도는 더이상 예수의 ‘스타우로스’(σταυρός)가 아닌 반드시 말씀이 되어 자기 ‘스타우로스’(σταυρός)를 져야 하는 것이며 그가 바로 땅적 존재에서 하늘적 존재가 된 자, 구원 받은 자가 되는 것이다.

    왜 빈 들인가? 빈 들에서만이 심령이 강해질수가 있었다. 세상의 소리는 우리를 불안하게 한다. 두려움을 준다. 세속의 소리는 하나님의 음성을 믿지 못하게 만든다. 주님은 심령이 강한 자를 쓰신다. 빈 들에 있는 자는 가히 총독이나 제사장들에게 “회개하라” 외칠수 있는 강심장을 받게 된다. "살리는 것은 영이니 육은 무익하니라 내가 너희에게 이른 말이 영이요 생명이라”(요6:63)

    구체적으로 모노게네스 (μονογενής)는 ‘하나님으로부터 시작된 하나님이신 하나’(요1:14)이며, ‘시작이 되시고 완성이 되시는 하나님 자신인 하나’라는 의미이다.

    42. 뒤나미스(δύναμις ) : 권능 ‘오직 성령이 너희에게 임하시면 권능을 받고 예루살렘과 온 유대와 사마리아와 땅 끝까지 이르러 내 증인이 되리라 하시니라’(행1:8) ‘권능’으로 번역된 헬라어 단어 ‘뒤나미스’(δύναμις )는 ‘할 수 있다, 가능하다, 힘이 있다’는 뜻의 ‘뒤나마이’(δύναμαι)에서 파생된 명사형으로 ‘강한 힘, 이적적인 능력, 전능한 일’이란 의미이다. 보통 ‘무엇이든 할 수 있는 능력’이라는 의미로 알려져 많은 그리스도인들이 ‘능력(δύναμις )을 얻기위해 기도하곤 한다. 그러나 이 단어가 쓰여진 용례를 보면 숨겨진 속뜻이 있음을 알 수 있다. 성령(말씀)이 임하면 권능(δύναμις )을 받아 말씀의 증인이 되며(행1:8), 예수님께서 말씀을 가르치실 때 그러한 권능(δύναμις )이 어디서 났는지 사람들이 놀라고(마13:54, 막6:2), 스데반이 은혜와 권능(δύναμις )이 충만하여 성령으로 말하며(행6:10)… ‘권세’ (엑수시아 : ἐξουσία)가 ‘하나님의 말씀을 품을 수 있는 능력’이라고 말한다면, ‘권능’ (뒤나미스 : δύναμις )은 ‘하나님의 말씀을 넘겨주는 능력’으로 이해할 수 있다. 이는 헬라어 ‘뒤나미스’( δύναμις)가 히브리어로는 ‘코아흐’(כח)라고 하는데 이를 파자하면 ‘완성된 진리로서의 생명을 넘겨줌’이라는 의미를 가지고 있다는데서 좀 더 확실하게 알 수 있는 것이다. ‘내가 너를 세웠음은 나의 능력을 네게 보이고 내 이름이 온 천하에 전파되게 하려 하였음이니라’(출9:16). 하나님께서는 하나님의 이름(말씀)을 온 천하에 전파되도록 하기 위해 모세를 세우면서 능력(כח, δύναμις)을 보여주신다. 모세가 받은 능력은 다름 아닌 말씀을 전하는 능력이었던 것이다. 성령(말씀)이 임했다는 것은 나의 말(율법)이 죽었다는 것을 의미한다. 그리고 하나님의 말씀을 품을 수 있는 권세(ἐξουσία)가 임하게 되었다는 것이며, 나아가 하나님의 말씀을 전해주는 능력(δύναμις)을 받았다는 것을 의미한다. 그러므로 능력(δύναμις) 행함이란, 눈에 보이고 육신을 만족케하는 기사와 이적을 행하는 의미에서의 행함이 아니라 오히려 진리의 말씀, 생명의 말씀을 전해준다는 의미에서의 행함을 말하는 것이며 그 말씀을 통하여 그리스도로 살도록 하는데 그 목적이 있음을 알아야 한다. 그런 의미에서 성도는 날마다 능력(δύναμις)행함의 삶을 살아야 하는 것이다.

  • 38. 디카이오쉬네(δικαιοσύνη ) : 의 ‘의에 주리고 목마른 자는 복이 있나니 그들이 긍휼히 여김을 받을 것임이요’(마5:6) ‘의’로 번역된 헬라어 단어 ‘디카이오쉬네’(δικαιοσύνη )인데, 넓은 의미에서 ‘의, 하나님이 받으실 만한 조건’, 좁은 의미에서 ‘각자에게 책임으로 주어진 정의와 도덕’이란 의미를 가지고 있다. 디카이오쉬네(δικαιοσύνη )의 형용사형은 ‘의로운, 신의 법에 순종하는, 거룩한, 흠없는’의 뜻을 가진 ‘디카이오스’(δίκαιος)인데 이 단어는 ‘옳은, 공의, 심판, 처벌, 복수, 옳바름’의 뜻을 가진 ‘디케’(δίκη)에서 파생되었으며, ‘디케’(δίκη)는 ‘보여주다, 증거를 제시하다, 말이나 가르침으로 나타내다’라는 의미를 가지 ‘데이크뉘오’(δείκνυω)에서 유래되었다. 성경은 ‘의인(δίκαιος)은 없나니 하나도 없나니’(롬3:10)라고 말씀하고 있다. 이 말씀은 하나님이 받으실 만한 조건으로서의 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )는 인간에게서는 나올 수 없다는 것이다. 뿐만아니라 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )속에는 ‘공의와 심판과 처벌’이라는 의미가 모두 포함되어 있다는 사실에서 죄인인 인간에게 해당되는 말이 아닌 것이다. 신약성경에 기록된 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )의 좀더 구체적인 성경적 개념을 알기 위해서는 이 단어가 번역된 히브리어를 살표보아야 한다. 70인역에서 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )로 번역한 히브리어 단어가 ‘쩨데크’(צךק)인데 이 단어는 ‘올바르다, 의롭게 하다, 의를 나타나게 하다, 정의를 행하다 또는 가져오다’라는 형용사 ‘짜다크’(צךק)에서 유래 되었다. ‘여호와여 주는 의로우시고(צךק ) 주의 판단은 옳으니이다’(시119:137)는 말씀에서 하나님 그분이 바로 ‘의’(צךק)이심을 알 수 있다. 이 말은 ‘하나님은 죄가 없고 도덕적, 윤리적으로 완전하신 분이다’라는 의미가 아니라, 언약의 관계에서 ‘의’(צךק)이신 하나님께서 스스로 의를 행하신다는 의미인 것이다. 그래서 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )이신 하나님께서 말씀 육신이 되어 이땅에 오셨으며(요1:14), 하나님의 백성들과의 언약을 십자가에서 이루신 것이다. ‘이것은 죄 사함을 얻게 하려고 많은 사람을 위하여 흘리는바 나의 피 곧 언약의 피니라’(마26:28) 또한 ‘쩨데크’(צךק)를 파자하면, ‘잡아서 구분하여 죽이고 살리신다’는 의미를 가지고 있다. 성도의 ‘의’ (δικαιοσύνη )’란 하나님의 언약의 말씀안에서 하나님의 열심으로 하나님 처럼의 ‘나’를 십자가에서 죽이시고 ‘그리스도’로 살게 하시는(갈2:20) 하나님의 은혜의 선물인 것이다.

  • 부활

    아나스타시스(ἀνάστασις) : 부활 ‘예수께서 가라사대 나는 부활이요, 생명이니 나를 믿는 자는 죽어도 살겠고’(요11:25) ‘부활’로 번역된 헬라어 단어 ‘아나스타시스’ (ἀνάστασις)는 ‘다시 일어서기, 죽음에서 부활, 자리에서 일어남, 죽음에서 일어남, 올림’이라는 뜻을 가지고 있다. ‘부활’이라는 단어의 국어사전적 의미는 ‘죽었다가 다시 살아남, 쇠퇴하거나 폐지한 것이 다시 성하게 됨 또는 그렇게 함, 십자가에서 못박혀 세상을 떠난 예수가 자신의 예언대로 사흘 만에 다시 살아난 일’이라고 정의하고 있다. 그래서 많은 기독교인들이 부활의 첫 열매가 되시는 예수님을 바라보며 죽음에서의 부활을 믿으며 소망하는 소위 부활신앙을 가지고 오늘도 열심히 신앙생활을 하고 있는 것이다. 그러나 성경이 말하고 있는 ‘부활’의 의미는 국어사전이 정의하고 있는 것과는 너무나 많은 차이가 있다. ‘부활’로 번역된 ‘아나스타시스’(ἀνάστασις)가 유래된 동사형인 ‘아니스테미’(ἀνίστημι)라는 단어가 가지고 있는 원래의 의미에서 찾을 수 있다. ‘아니스테미’의 뜻은 ‘다시 일어나다, 똑바로 서다, 죽음에서 일으키다, 나아가다, 자리에서 일어나다, 들어올리다’인데, ‘한 가운데로, 중앙에 , 의 복판에, 사이에’의 뜻을 가진 ‘아나’(ἀνά)와 ‘서다, 이룩하다, 두다, 세우다, 옆이나 가까이 서다, 확고한 마음을 가지다, 권리를 포기하지 않다’의 뜻을 가진 ‘히스테미’(ἵστημι)의 합성어에서 유래된 단어이다. 정리하면, ‘부활’(ἀνάστασις)의 성경적 의미는 ‘하나님이 창조하신 모든 것을 통하여 그 속에 담겨진 하나님의 마음인 말씀을 깨달아 그 말씀으로 똑바로 서는 것, 선악의 주체가 되어 두마음을 가지고 하나님처럼 살아가는 영원한 죽음의 삶에서 한마음이신 예수 그리스도의 영원한 생명의 삶으로 나아가는 것 그리고 하나님이 주시겠다고 약속하신 진리의 영이신 성령(말씀)을 통하여 진리(말씀)의 완성이라는 의미를 가진 ‘다나토스’(θάνατος)의 죽음으로 다시 살아나는 것’으로 이해할 수 있다. 그런 의미에서 예수님의 ‘나는 부활이다’(Ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ ἀνάστασις)라는 고백은 ‘나는 말씀이다’((Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ λόγος)라는 고백과 같은 것이다. 그러므로 그리스도의 사람인 성도는 그리스도의 영(말씀)을 가진 자이며(롬8:9), 하나님의 성령(말씀)이 거하는 성전이고(고전3:16) 이미 부활(ἀνάστασις)의 삶을 사는 자인 것이다.

  • Abraham and Isaac

    This short film learning experience highlights the true story of Abraham and his son, Isaac. Often called “the Father of Faith,” Abraham faced a difficult test when God commanded him to make an unusual and—based on human standards—seemingly nonsensical and cruel sacrifice. God used this test of obedience to see whether or not Abraham trusted Him fully and would, in faith, obediently make everything he had available for God’s use. Today we each have a choice. Will we listen to God’s voice—through the Bible, prayer, and the wisdom of godly people? Will we not only seek God’s will for our lives but obey Him faithfully—whether or not we know the final outcome?

  • Abraham and Isaac

    In Genesis chapter 12 verses 1-3, when Abraham is already 75 years old, God promises that he will be the father of a great nation - but he does not have any children. The promise is repeated in Genesis chapter 13 verses 14-16, but there is still no sign of children. In Genesis chapter 15 verses 4-5, when Abraham doubts, God renews the promise - but there are still no children. So when he is 86, Abraham decides to take things into his own hands, and fathers a child on one of his slave girls. In Genesis chapter 17 verses 17-19, thirteen years later, when Abraham is 99 and his wife is 90, God renews his promise

  • God's message to Abraham

    The Gospel taught by Jesus and the apostles was not fundamentally different from what was understood by Abraham. God, through the Scriptures, "Preached before the gospel unto Abraham" (Gal. 3:8). So crucial are these promises that Peter started and ended his public proclamation of the Gospel with reference to them (Acts 3: 13,25).If we can understand what was taught to Abraham, we will then have a very basic picture of the Christian Gospel.

  • Crossing of River Jordan

    Crossing the Jordan 3 Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. 2 After three days the officers went throughout the camp, 3 giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. 4 Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. But keep a distance of about two thousand cubits[a] between you and the ark; do not go near it.” 5 Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”

  • Rape of Dinah by Shechem

    Genesis 34. Two wrongs do not make a right. The rape of Dinah by Shechem was inexcusable. But the treachery of Jacob’s sons in insisting that the men of the town be circumcised – only to weaken them so that they could attack and kill them – was also wrong on so many levels. Fast forward into the future and you will see the consequences of this tragedy: Simeon and Levi had taken it upon himself to avenge Dinah’s rape by murdering the inhabitants of Shechem. They would both lose the inheritance due to the oldest and it would go to Judah instead (Reuben would lose this privilege for another reason). Jacob was right in assuming that this event would cause lasting enmity between his family and the Canaanites and Perrizites. Some of the Israelites who would return to possess this land were actually descendants of the Shechemites (29). LORD, help us to see that there can be lasting consequences when we insist on getting even with those who have wronged us.

Now I will make your name great, like the names of the greatest men on earth. 10 And I will provide a place for my people Israel and will plant them so that they can have a home of their own and no longer be disturbed. Wicked people will not oppress them anymore, as they did at the beginning 11 and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies. “‘The Lord declares to you that the Lord himself will establish a house for you: 12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever. ’” 17 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.

  • Rebuilding of Wall of Jerusalem

    When the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem, the Bible noted the following, "And all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls of Jerusalem all around" (II Kings 25:10; also Jeremiah 52:14). Seventy years later, Nehemiah heard of the destruction and wanted to repair the walls. "And they said to me, "The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire."" (Nehemiah 1:3). Nehemiah arrived and inspected the walls. "Then I arose in the night, I and a few men with me; I told no one what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem; nor was there any animal with me, except the one on which I rode. And I went out by night through the Valley Gate to the Serpent Well and the Refuse Gate, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem which were broken down and its gates which were burned with fire. Then I went on to the Fountain Gate and to the King's Pool, but there was no room for the animal under me to pass. So I went up in the night by the valley, and viewed the wall; then I turned back and entered by the Valley Gate, and so returned" (Nehemiah 2:12-15).

No decent food; no water—we can't stomach this stuff any longer." 6-7 So God sent poisonous snakes among the people; they bit them and many in Israel died. The people came to Moses and said, "We sinned when we spoke out against God and you. Pray to God; ask him to take these snakes from us." Moses prayed for the people. 8 God said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it on a flagpole: Whoever is bitten and looks at it will live." 9 So Moses made a snake of fiery copper and put it on top of a flagpole. Anyone bitten by a snake who then looked at the copper snake lived.

Mordecai said that he does not bow because he is Jewish. Haman wanted to kill Mordecai and end the disobedience, but could not ask the king to kill Mordecai because the king did not make the order that the leaders at the king's gate must bow. Killing Mordecai would not solve Haman's problem because a new Jewish representative will take his place and will not bow. So Haman decided to kill the whole nation of Mordecai and Mordecai himself, and then there will be no need for a new Jewish representative, who might not bow to him.

    Many tragic incidents occur as the unexpected outcome of a sequence of events. Certainly that is the case with King David. A little vacation from war leads to a day spent in bed, followed by a stroll along the roof of his palace as night begins to fall on Jerusalem. By chance, David sees a woman bathing herself, a sight which David fixes upon, and then follows up on with an investigation as to her identity. The woman is shortly summoned to the palace and then to his bedroom, where David sleeps with her, even though he has discovered she is the wife of Uriah, a warrior who is fighting for the army of Israel. The woman becomes pregnant, and so David calls Uriah home, hoping it will be thought that he has gotten his wife pregnant. When this does not work, David gives orders to Joab, the commander of the army, which arranges for Uriah's death in battle. It looks like the perfect crime, but David's sin is discovered and dealt with by Nathan, the prophet of God.

  • Giving_of_Abrahamic_Covenant

    A covenant is an agreement between two parties. There are two types of covenants: conditional and unconditional. A conditional or bilateral covenant is an agreement that is binding on both parties for its fulfillment. Both parties agree to fulfill certain conditions. If either party fails to meet their responsibilities, the covenant is broken and neither party has to fulfill the expectations of the covenant. An unconditional or unilateral covenant is an agreement between two parties, but only one of the two parties has to do something. Nothing is required of the other party. The Abrahamic Covenant is an unconditional covenant. God made promises to Abraham that required nothing of Abraham. Genesis 15:18-21 describes a part of the Abrahamic Covenant, specifically dealing with the dimensions of the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants.

  • Demolition of Babel Tower

    According to the biblical account, a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating from the east, came to the land of Shinar, where they resolved to build a city with a tower "with its top in the heavens...lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth." God came down to see what they did and said: "They are one people and have one language, and nothing will be withholden from them which they purpose to do." So God said, "Come, let us go down and confound their speech." And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city, which was called Babel "because God there confounded the language of all the Earth."(Genesis 11:5-8).

  • Parable of the Prodigal Son

    The Prodigal Son, also known as the Lost Son, is one of the best known parables of Jesus. It appears only in the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament of the Bible (Luke 15:11-32). It is the third and final member of a trilogy, following the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin.

  • The_marriage_of_Ruth_to_Boaz

    BROTHER-IN-LAW MARRIAGE: Under the Law aman would marry his deceased brother’s sonless widow in order to produce offspring to carry on the brother’sline. (Genesis 38:8) (Deuteronomy 25:5-7) The woman was not to become a strange mans’ wife from outside thefamily. When the brother in law took her, the first-born would bear the name of the deceased man. A well-knownexample of brother-in-law marriage in the Bible is themarriage of Ruth to Boaz as recorded in the book of Ruth. Jehovah blessed this arrangement, for they gave birth to Obed who was the father of David in the directlineage of Jesus Christ. (Ruth 4)

    1 Kings 18:17-40 Elijah challenges the priests of Baal to a contest - 4-50 priests of Baal make sacrifices, even hurt themselves, to get Baal's attention => nothing happens after several hours - Elijah prepares his sacrifice => He pours water on it three times, and prepares a moat to keep the water in => This makes the offering difficult to set fire to - Elijah calls on God once => The Lord sent fire which not only consumed the wet offering, but also all the wood, the stones, the very dirt under the alter, and also took all the water! - The people recognize God and worship him - They destroy all the false prophets who had led them into idol worship.

  • Destroy of Amalekites by Saul and Disobedience

    Saul’s refusal to totally annihilate the Amalekites costs him his kingdom. It is a most serious sin. Our text not only exposes Saul’s sin, it may very well expose our own. Saul is willing to do things we might never even consider – like killing little children. Would we have put the Amalekite children to death as Saul did? If not, why not? Our text addresses the nature of Saul’s disobedience which is very much like the disobedience prevalent among Christians today. Our text holds important lessons for us to learn about Saul’s disobedience and its consequences and about our own disobedience to God’s commands as well.

  • Tower of Babel

    The Tower of Babel, according to the Book of Genesis, was an enormous tower built at the city of Babylon, a cosmopolitan city typified by a confusion of languages, also called the "beginning" of Nimrod's kingdom. According to the biblical account, a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating from the east, participated in the building.

  • Sarah and Abimelech

    Abraham and Abimelech The second story is split into two parts. The first part is in Genesis 20:1-16 and the second in Genesis 21:22-34. The first part begins with Abraham emigrating to the southern region of Gerar, whose king is named Abimelech. (Note that, by this time, God has changed Abram and Sarai's names to Abraham and Sarah, respectively, as stated at Genesis 17:5,15.) Abraham states that Sarah, his wife, is really his sister, leading Abimelech to try to take Sarah as a wife; however, God intervened before Abimelech touched Sarah. God visits Abimelech in a dream and tells him the truth, acknowledging that Abimelech made the mistake innocently, but ordering Abimelech to restore Sarah to Abraham. Abimelech complains to Abraham, who states that he didn't exactly lie, since Sarah is his half-sister. Abimelech rebuking Abraham by Wenceslas Hollar. Abimelech asks Abraham, "What has thou done unto us?" Abimelech then restores Sarah to Abraham, and gives him gifts of livestock and servants by way of apology, and also allows Abraham to reside anywhere in Gerar. Abimelech also gives 1000 pieces of silver to Abraham to reprove Sarah by a covering of the eyes.

  • Conquest of the north by the Assyrians

    The Northern Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Neo-Assyrian monarchs, Tiglath-Pileser III (Pul) and Shalmaneser V. The later Assyrian rulers Sargon II and his son and successor, Sennacherib, were responsible for finishing the twenty year demise of Israel's northern ten tribe kingdom. Sennacherib also invaded some parts of the Southern Kingdom of Judah. He records forty-six fortified towns captured from Judah, and presumably carried away into Assyria. Jerusalem was besieged, but not taken. The tribes exiled by Assyria later became known as the Ten Lost Tribes.

  • Battle of the Vale of Siddim

    background: In the days of Lot, before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, The Elamite empire occupied the Land of Canaan which included all of the Jordan River Plain and many surrounding tribes and cities. The occupation was under the rule of King Chedorlaomer for twelve years. In the thirteenth year, five kings of the cities of the Jordan plain revolted against Elamite rule. According to Jewish tradition, the revolt started with refusing to pay tribute to the Elamite empire. This triggered Chedorlaomer to assemble forces from the four main directions of Mesopotamia. Chedorlaomer's campaign to the Jordan plains began with sacking and looting every city along the way.(Genesis 14:1–7)

  • Sansom and Temptation of Delilah

    Samson and Delilah - Story Summary: When Samson fell for Delilah, a woman from the Valley of Sorek, it marked the beginning of his downfall and eventual demise. It didn't take long for the rich and powerful Philistine rulers to learn of the affair and immediately pay a visit to Delilah. Using her powers of seduction and deception, Delilah persistently wore down Samson with her repeated requests, until he finally divulged the crucial information. Having taken the Nazirite vow at birth, Samson had been set apart to God. As part of that vow, his hair was never to be cut. When Samson told Delilah that his strength would leave him if a razor were to be used on his head, she cunningly crafted her plan with the Philistine rulers. While Samson slept on her lap, Delilah called in a co-conspirator to shave off the seven braids of his hair. Subdued and weak, Samson was captured. As he slaved at grinding grain, his hair began to grow, but the careless Philistines paid no attention. And in spite of his horrible failures and sins of great consequence, Samson's heart now turned to the Lord. He was humbled. He prayed to God—a first—and God answered. Rather than killing him, the Philistines preferred to humiliated him by gouging out his eyes and subjecting him to hard labor in a Gaza prison.

  • Friendship between David and Jonathan

    David were heroic figures of the Kingdom of Israel, whose covenant was recorded favourably in the books of Samuel. Jonathan was the son of Saul, king of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, and David was the son of Jesse of Bethlehem and Jonathan's presumed rival for the crown. David became king. The covenant the two men had formed eventually led to David graciously seating Jonathan's son Mephibosheth, a cripple, at his own royal table instead of eradicating the former king Saul's line. The biblical text does not explicitly depict the nature of the relationship between David and Jonathan. The traditional and mainstream religious interpretation of the relationship has been one of platonic love and an example of homosociality. Some later Medieval and Renaissance literature drew upon the story to underline strong personal friendships between men, some of which involved romantic love and could perhaps be described as romantic friendships. In modern times, some scholars, writers and activists have emphasized what they interpret as elements of homoeroticism (chaste or otherwise) in the story.

  • The_discovery_of_the_Law_of_Moses_in_Josiahs_reign

    King Josiah tried to reform the religion of his kingdom to make monotheism the official religion, with Yahweh (God) as the only God of Judah, with the Temple in Jerusalem as the only place of worship. Some of the laws of Moses were written down at this time as part of Josiah's Deuteronomistic reforms, including an injunction to worship God alone. However, many of the laws attributed to Moses were not written until the Babylonian Exile or later, and were therefore unknown to Josiah. Much of what we now attribute to Moses should be attributed to authors of the first millennium BCE, including the Deuteronomist who wrote during the reign of Josiah.

  • Passovers

    Passover is a Jewish festival. It commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.

  • Building of Temple

    After the death of his father David, Solomon issued the orders for the building of the First Temple to commence: You know that my father David could not build a house for the name of the Lord his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side until the Lord put his foes under the soles of his feet. (1 Kings 5:3). The building of the First Temple was a monumental task. Phoenician craftsmen were employed to build the Temple. Construction began in the fourth year of Solomon's reign and took seven years: Then King Solomon raised up a labor force out of all Israel - and the labor force was thirty thousand men . . . Solomon selected seventy thousand men to bear burdens, eighty thousand to quarry stone in the mountains, and three thousand six hundred to oversee them. (1 Kings 5:13; 2 Chronicles 2:2).

  • The_Exodus_from_Egypt

    Because of an inscription from the reign of Merenptah, who succeeded Ramesses II on the throne, it has been suggested that the event of the Exodus should not be dated much later than the middle of the 13th Century BC. In the last lines of this inscription, carved on a stela set up to commemorate Merenptah's victory over the Libyans in his fifth year on the throne (about 1209 or 1208 BC), the king boasts of his victories over various peoples and places in Syria-Palestine. Here, he claims, with the common exaggeration of royal inscriptions, that "Israel is desolate, and has no seed". Clearly, Merenptah's army had victoriously fought some part of Israel, and the message to us today is clear. By this point in history, the Israelites were in the land of Canaan though the account does not really help us to date their actual arrival. Hence, the majority view among scholars is that the Exodus must have taken place by at least the 13th Century BC. Moses, of course, plays an obviously important role in the Exodus. The Bible tells us that he was born in Egypt to slave parents and saved from a genocidal policy of the pharaoh when his mother places him adrift on the Nile in a basket. The basket was then found by a daughter of the king, and he was thus brought up at the royal court. However, he would grow up to become the Israelite's leader, deliverer in to freedom and lawgiver.

  • Reconciliation_of_Jacob_and_Esau

    When Jacob lifted his face, on the horizon in the distance, it looked like Esau was coming bringing along with him four hundred men. Jacob had spent the night face to face with God and made preparations to meet face to face with man. His resolve was made up. He had turned it all over to God, and standing at the lead, he went forward. Until he arrived at Esau's position, he lowered himself down to the ground seven times. Then, Esau came running. Jacob couldn't run away or hide now. Since God struck the joint of his hip, he didn't have the option to run away. Right now, though, Jacob wasn't depending any more on his own power and strength. The only thing that mattered was that he had been forgiven and blessed by God. That's right, the rock that anybody can ultimately depend on is only the forgiveness and the blessing of God. 5. The brother running to him came up to him, and a surprising thing happened. What Jacob saw there was not the figure of a brother crazed with anger and brandishing a sword. Esau welcomed him with opened arms, he hugged him, held his head, and kissed him. Esau was weeping. Jacob wept with him. So, reconciliation took place in a manner which far exceeded Jacob's thoughts on it.

  • Golden Calf

    In Hebrew, the incident is known "The Sin of the Calf". It is first mentioned in Exodus 32:4. Bull worship was common in many cultures. In Egypt, whence according to the Exodus narrative the Hebrews had recently come, the Apis Bull was a comparable object of worship, which some believe the Hebrews were reviving in the wilderness;[1] alternatively, some believe the God of Israel was associated with or pictured as a calf/bull deity through the process of religious assimilation and syncretism. Among the Egyptians' and Hebrews' neighbors in the Ancient Near East and in the Aegean, the Aurochs, the wild bull, was widely worshipped, often as the Lunar Bull and as the creature of El.

  • Meeting of Lot and Boas

    According to Josephus, he lived at the time of Eli. Son of Rachab and Salma, he was a rich landowner who noticed Ruth, the widowed Moabite daughter-in-law of Naomi, a relative of hers, gleaning grain from his fields. He soon learns of the difficult circumstances her family is in and Ruth's loyalty to Naomi. In response, Boaz invites her to eat with him and his workers regularly as well as deliberately leaving grain for her to claim while keeping a protective eye on her. It should be noted that the tradition of Boaz descending from a Canaanite prostitute stems from confusion regarding the identity of the mother of Boaz, who is not mentioned in the Tanakh but is in the Genealogical record of Matthew; Because they have the same name some people believe she is the same person mentioned in Joshua, but that is not supported by linguistic and textual evidence. Boaz married Ruth and, consequently, preserved the name of Elimelech, Naomi's deceased husband, a sort of levirate. Their firstborn was considered a son of Elimelech's lineage (Rt-4.5, 10). Boaz purchased the family lands that Naomi had sold, and restituted them to Elimelech's lineage (vv. 3, 7–10). For those substituting, redeeming factors, Ruth's husband is considered by Christians to be a type of Jesus of Nazareth, whom they consider to be the Messiah. Although Boaz is noted to be much older than Ruth in the traditional account[13] and he marries her for Naomi's sake, most dramatic adaptations[citation needed] have Boaz as a handsome young man so as to enhance the romantic nature of the story. Their son was Obed, father of Jesse, and grandfather of David. Boaz is mentioned in both the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke as an ancestor of Jesus, "according to the flesh".

  • Jeroboam and his two golden calves

    After the death of Solomon the usurper Jeroboam sought to strengthen his hold on the northern 10 tribes by making two golden calves. The declarations of Aaron's followers and Jeroboam are almost identical: 'These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt' (Exod 32:4, 8); 'Behold your gods, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt (1 Kings 12:28) After making the golden calf or golden calves both Aaron and Jeroboam celebrate festivals. Aaron builds an altar and Jeroboam ascends an altar (Exod 32:5–6; 1 Kings 12:32–33). Richard Elliott Friedman says "at a minimum we can say that the writer of the golden calf account in Exodus seems to have taken the words that were traditionally ascribed to Jeroboam and placed them in the mouths of the people." Friedman believes that the story was turned into a polemic, exaggerating the throne platform decoration into idolatory, by a family of priests sidelined by Jeroboam.[5]

  • Seizure of Vineyard by Naboth

    Naboth "the Jezreelite," is the central figure of a story from the Old Testament. According to the story, Naboth was the owner of a plot on the eastern slope of the hill of Jezreel. Described as a small "plat of ground", the vineyard seems to have been all he possessed and lay close to the palace of Ahab, who wished to acquire to "have it for a garden of herbs" (probably as a ceremonial garden for Baal worship). Naboth, however, had inherited his land from his father, and, according to Jewish law, could not alienate it. Accordingly, he refused to sell it to the king. Ahab became deeply dejected, at not being able to procure the vineyard. Returning to his palace, he collapsed with depression, lying on his bed, his face to the wall, and refused to eat. His wife, Jezebel, after learning the reason for his depression, (in addition to being irritated at the king's emotional state urging him to return to his entertainment saying mockingly, "Are you the king or aren't you?") promised that she would obtain the vineyard for him. To do so, she plotted to kill Naboth by mock trial, and then told Ahab to take possession of the vineyard as the legal heir. As punishment for this action, the prophet Elijah visited Ahab while he was in the vineyard, pronouncing doom on him. Ahab humbled himself at Elijah's words, and was spared accordingly, with the prophesied destruction being visited instead on his son Joram.

  • Birth of Samuel

    Samuel was born about 1105BC and was the son of Elkanah and Hannah, from the tribe of Levi. Samuel was born in answer to Hannah’s prayers. Samuel's mother Hannah dedicated Samuel from birth to the Lord God and Samuel served God all his life. Samuel was asked by God to anoint two kings. First Saul as king then David as king. In Hebrew, Samuel means: heard of God because God heard Hannah’s prayers

  • Death of Moses

    The Death of Moses 34 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, 2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”

  • Joseph_in_prison

    Joseph in Prison Imprisoned with Joseph were two men who recognized his piety and righteousness. Both had been plagued by vivid dreams and now hoped Joseph would be able to interpret the dreams for them. One man saw a dream in which he was pressing wine, the other saw a dream in which birds were eating bread from his head. Joseph said, “I will inform you of the meaning of these dreams before your next meal is served”.

  • Jacob Family Move to Egypt

    Joseph throws his arms around his brothers, and he hugs and kisses them all. When Phar´aoh hears that Joseph’s brothers have come, he tells Joseph: ‘Let them take wagons and go get their father and their families and come back here. I will give them the best land in all Egypt.’ That is what they did. Here you can see Joseph meeting his father when he came to Egypt with his whole family. Jacob’s family had become very big. Altogether there were 70 when they moved to Egypt, counting Jacob and his children and grandchildren. But there were also the wives, and probably many servants too. These all settled in Egypt. They were called Israelites, because God had changed the name of Jacob to Israel. The Israelites became a very special people to God, as we will see later.

  • Binding of Isaac

  • Education of Book of the Law of Moses

    "So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading." (Neh. 8:8) The return to Jerusalem from 70 years of Babylonian captivity occurred in three stages: 1)- Zerubbabel returns to build the temple, 2)- after a gap of 57 years Ezra returns to reform the people and 3)- 12 years later Nehemiah returns to rebuild the walls of the city. It was immediately following the reconstruction of the city walls that events of Nehemiah chapter eight took place. Nehemiah brought great energy and courage to the building of the walls. The success of this project led to a dramatic change in the attitude of the people of Judah. Their self-respect had been recovered by their victory over their enemies; their awareness of God's presence had been stirred. Gathering together to celebrate and praise God, Nehemiah put forward Ezra the scribe "to bring out the Book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded for Israel" (8:1). All the people gathered to hear Ezra read and interpret the words

  • Jacob and Laban

    When Jacob reached Haram, almost the first person he met was his uncle Laban's younger daughter, Rachel, to whom he was immediately attracted. Laban gave Jacob a warm welcome and employed him as a shepherd, on the understanding that in return for seven years' work he should be allowed to marry Rachel. The seven years passed quickly, but after the marriage ceremony Jacob discovered that his veiled bride was not Rachel, but her elder sister Leah. When Jacob protested, Laban replied that custom did not permit a younger sister to be married before the elder, but agreed to let him marry Rachel as his second wife as soon as the celebrations for his marriage to Leah were over, provided he would undertake to work for him for a further seven years. (ibid. ch. 29, vv. 1-30).

  • The_Babylonian_Captivity_of_the_southern_kingdom

    Nebuchadnezzar was the king of the most powerful nation on earth at this time. His father, Nabopolassar, had founded the Babylonian empire after defeating the Assyrians and developing the commerce and massive building program. He extended the empire as far as the Mediterranean Sea. Three waves of captives The Jewish captives were settled along the Chebar River and treated as colonists. They were given freedom to lead normal lives as long as they remained politically loyal to the Babylonian government. Daniel became a government official. Many became quite wealthy in Babylon and their families remained there after the seventy years of captivity were over. The first group of captives to be led away to Babylon included the prophet Daniel in 605 B.C. A few years later in 597 B.C. ten thousand captives, including the prophet Ezekiel followed. Finally, when the city of Jerusalem fell in 586 B.C. the final captives were led away to the banks of the River Chebar in Babylon (2 Kings 24:1-18; 2 Chron. 36:11-21; Jer. 52:1-11; Ezek. 1:1-2; Daniel 1:1-7). The important lesson from the captivity was the purging of idolatry from the hearts of God’s people. They never forgot the penalty of turning from Yahweh to follow other gods. They were more faithful to Him in Babylon than in Jerusalem.

  • David's extermination of Amalekites

    God knowѕ the future. God knew whаt the results wоuld be іf Israel did nоt completely eradicate thе Amalekites. If Israel did not carry out God’s orders, thе Amalekites wоuld cоme back tо “haunt” the Israelites аgаіn аnd again. Saul claimed to havе killed еverуonе but thе Amalekite king Agag (1 Samuel 15:20). Obviously Saul waѕ lying…just а couple оf decades later thеre wеrе еnоugh Amalekites tо tаke David аnd his men’s families captive (1 Samuel 30:1-2). After David аnd hіs men attacked thе Amalekites аnd rescued their families, 400 Amalekites escaped. If Saul hаd fulfilled what God hаd commanded him, thіѕ never would havе occurred. Several hundred years later, a descendant of Agag, Haman, trіеd tо havе the entire Jewish people exterminated (see the book оf Esther). So, Saul’s incomplete obedience аlmost resulted іn Israel’s destruction. God knew thіs wоuld occur, so He ordered thе extermination of the Amalekites ahead оf time.

  • Ascension of David

    Saul and Jonathan are killed by the Philistines at Mount Gilboa. David mourns their death, then goes up to Hebron, where he is anointed king over Judah; in the north, Saul's son Ish-Bosheth is king of the tribes of Israel. War ensues between Ish-Bosheth and David, until Ish-Bosheth is murdered. The assassins bring the head of Ish-Bosheth to David hoping for reward, but David executes them for their crime against the Lord's anointed. Yet with the death of the son of Saul, the elders of Israel come to Hebron, and David, 37 years old, is anointed King over Israel and Judah. David conquers the Jebusite fortress of Jerusalem, and makes it his capital, and "Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, also carpenters and masons who built David a house." David brings the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, intending to build a temple, but God, speaking to the prophet Nathan, forbids it, saying the temple must wait for a future generation. God makes a covenant with David, promising that he will establish the house of David eternally: "Your throne shall be established forever." With Yahweh's help David is victorious over his people's enemies. The Philistines are subdued, the Moabites to the east pay tribute, and Hadadezer of Zobah, from whom David takes gold shields and bronze vessels.

  • Joseph's family settles in Gushen

    How did Joseph’s family end up living in Egypt? Joseph was released from prison and put in the service of the Pharaoh as second in command of Egypt because he correctly interpreted the Pharaoh’s dream that a great famine was coming. He predicted 7 years of good harvest followed by 7 years of famine. Joseph recommended that Egypt make great stores of food to prepare for the famine. This famine not only affected Egypt but also Israel. Joseph’s father, Jacob, sent his sons to Egypt to get food during the famine. At first Joseph did not reveal who he was to his brothers but finally revealed himself and Jacob and Joseph’s brothers were invited to come and live in Egypt. The Hebrew people (Israelites) were the descendants of this group.

David then gathers his army and goes against the Ammonites and has a great conquest of them.

  • Wise Judgement by King Solomon

    The story is recounted in 1Kings 3:16-28. Two young women who lived in the same house and who both had an infant son came to Solomon for a judgement. One of the women claimed that the other, after accidentally smothering her own son while sleeping, had exchanged the two children to make it appear that the living child was hers. The other woman denied this and so both women claimed to be the mother of the living son and said that the dead boy belonged to the other. After some deliberation, King Solomon called for a sword to be brought before him. He declared that there is only one fair solution: the live son must be split in two, each woman receiving half of the child. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy's true mother cried out, "Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!" However, the liar, in her bitter jealousy, exclaimed, "It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!" Solomon instantly gave the live baby to the real mother, realizing that the true mother's instincts were to protect her child, while the liar revealed that she did not truly love the child. The reputation of the king greatly increased when all the people of Israel heard of this wise judgment.

Of all the children in his household, he loved Rachel’s firstborn son, Joseph, the most. Thus Joseph’s half brothers were jealous of him and they ridiculed him often. Joseph even told his father about all of his half brothers’ misdeeds. When Joseph was seventeen years old, Jacob made a long coat or tunic of many colors for him. Seeing this, the half brothers began to hate Joseph. Then Joseph began to have dreams that implied that his family would bow down to him. When he told his brothers about these dreams, it drove them to conspire against him. When Jacob heard of these dreams, he rebuked his son for proposing the idea that the house of Jacob would even bow down to Joseph. Yet, he contemplated his son’s words about these dreams. (Genesis 37:1-11) Sometime afterward, the sons of Jacob by Leah, Bilhah and Zilpah, were feeding his flocks in Shechem. Jacob wanted to know how things were doing, so he asked Joseph to go down there and return with a report. This was the last time he would ever see his son in Hebron. Later that day, the report that Jacob ended up receiving came from Joseph's brothers who brought before him a coat laden with blood. Jacob identified the coat as the one he made for Joseph. At that moment he cried “It is my son’s tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces.” He rent his clothes and put sackcloth around his waist mourning for days. No one from the house of Jacob could comfort him during this time of bereavement. (Genesis 37:31-35) The truth was, Jacob’s son Joseph, was turned on by his brothers and ultimately sold into slavery on a caravan headed for Egypt. (Genesis 37:36)

  • Jacob and Ladder

    Jacob left Beersheba, and went toward Haran. He came to the place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or "beside him"] and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants; and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you." Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place; and I did not know it." And he was afraid, and said, "This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."

  • Vision of Edenic future

    Isaiah 2:1~6 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: In the last days the mountain of the LORD'S temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. 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. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD. You have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans.

  • Pillar of Salt

    She became a pillar of salt - The vast variety of opinions, both ancient and modern, on the crime of Lot's wife, her change, and the manner in which that change was effected, are in many cases as unsatisfactory as they are ridiculous. On this point the sacred Scripture says little. God had commanded Lot and his family not to look behind them; the wife of Lot disobeyed this command; she looked back from behind him - Lot, her husband, and she became a pillar of salt. This is all the information the inspired historian has thought proper to give us on this subject; it is true the account is short, but commentators and critics have made it long enough by their laborious glosses.

  • Divine Shepherd

    Psalm 23 portrays God as a shepherd, feeding (verse 1) and leading (verse 3) his flock. The "rod and staff" (verse 4) are also the implements of a shepherd. Some commentators see the shepherd imagery pervading the entire psalm. J. Douglas MacMillan argues that "you prepare a table for me" in verse 5 refers to the "old oriental shepherding practice" of using little raised tables to feed sheep. Similarly, "you anoint my head with oil" may refer to an ancient form of backliner—the oil is poured on wounds, and repels flies. MacMillan also notes that "Goodness and mercy" in verse 6 remind him of two sheepdogs coming behind the flock. [edit]In Jewish tradition

  • The_silver_cup

    Joseph ordered his steward to load the brother's donkeys with food and all their money. The money they brought was double what they had from the first trip. Deceptively, Joseph also ordered that his silver cup be put in Benjamin's sack. The following morning the brothers began their journey back to Canaan. At Joseph's command, the steward was to apprehend them and question them about the silver cup. When the steward caught up with the brothers, he seized them and searched their sacks. The steward found the cup in Benjamin's sack just as he had planted it the night before. This caused a stir amongst the brothers. However, they agreed to be escorted back to Egypt. When the Vizier (Joseph) confronted them about the silver cup, he demanded that the one who possessed the cup in his bag become his slave. In response, Judah pleaded with the Vizier that Benjamin be allowed to return to his father, and he himself be kept in Benjamin's place as a slave. (Genesis 44)

  • Birth of Isaac

    It was prophesied to the patriarch Abraham that he would have a son and that his name should be called Isaac. When Abraham became one hundred years old, this son was born to him by his first wife Sarah. Though this was Abraham's second son. it was Sarah’s first and only child. On the eighth day from his birth, Isaac was circumcised, as was necessary for all males of Abraham's household, in order to be in compliance with Yahweh's covenant. After Isaac had been weaned, Sarah saw Ishmael mocking, and urged her husband to banish Hagar and Ishmael so that Isaac would be Abraham's only heir. Abraham was hesitant, but at God's order he listened to his wife's request.

  • Jacob wrestles with an angel at_Peniel

    Jacob then transported his family and flocks across the ford Jabbok by night, then recrossed back to send over his possessions, being left alone in communion with God. There, a mysterious being appeared ("man", Genesis 32:24, 28; or "God", Genesis 32:28, 30, Hosea 12:3, 5; or "angel", Hosea 12:4), and the two wrestled until daybreak. When the being saw that he did not overpower Jacob, he touched Jacob on the sinew of his thigh (the gid hanasheh, גיד הנשה), and as a result, Jacob developed a limp (Genesis 32:31). Because of this, "to this day the people of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket" (Genesis 32:32). This incident is the source of the mitzvah of porging.

    Upon the death of Solomon in 931 B.C. the united kingdom of Israel was spit with ten northern tribes pulling away and forming their own nation using the name Israel. The two remaining tribes in the south continued under the name of Judah. During the next 209 years the northern kingdom of Israel continued its worship of idolatry until in 722 B.C. God used the Assyrians as His hammer of judgment. The southern kingdom of Judah continued on for another 134 years after Israel’s fall only to be judged for its spiritual adultery by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar (2 Chron. 36:17-20).

  • Jacob_in_Egypt

    When the sons of Israel (Jacob) returned to Hebron from their second trip, they came back with twenty additional donkeys carrying all kinds of goods and supplies as well as Egyptian transport wagons. When their father came out to meet them, his sons told him that Joseph was still alive, that he was the governor over all of Egypt and that he wanted the house of Israel to move to Egypt. Israel’s heart “stood still” and just couldn’t believe what he was hearing. Looking upon the wagons he declared “Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.” (Genesis 45:16-28)

  • The_enslavement_of_Israel_in_Egypt

    The Israelites Oppressed 1 These are the names of the sons of Israel who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah; 3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin; 4 Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher. 5 The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy[a] in all; Joseph was already in Egypt. 6 Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died, 7 but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them. 8 Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. 9 “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.” 11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly. 15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. 18 Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?” 19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.” 20 So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own. 22 Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

  • Fruit of Good and Evil

    The Eden story, which takes up chapters 2 to 4 of the Book of Genesis, tells how the Abrahamic God creates the first man and puts him in a paradise-garden in Eden. Before making the first woman, God tells the man that he may eat the fruit of any of the trees in the garden except that of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God then forms the first woman (named Eve) and Genesis 2 ends with a note that the man and woman "were naked and felt no shame". A talking snake subsequently tempts the woman to eat the fruit with the promise of knowledge. The woman and the man both eat, become aware of their nakedness and make coverings for themselves. God, aware that the first humans now have knowledge, banishes them from the garden lest they eat from the Tree of Life and live forever.

There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death.” 4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. 5 On the sixth day they are to prepare what they bring in, and that is to be twice as much as they gather on the other days.

  • Plot of Killing of David by Saul

    Plans for the murder of David Saul said to David, "Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the lord's battles." Saul was thinking to himself that instead of him killing David, he would send David to war and his enemies would kill him. Then David said to Saul, "Who am I? And what is my life or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?" David was confused because he came from a lowly family and the king wanted him to marry his daughter. When it came time for the wedding, Saul's daughter was given to another man to marry. I wonder if David felt sad. Saul had another daughter named Michal who loved David. They told Saul and it pleased Saul that they should marry--Saul said in his heart, " I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him." Saul knew that his daughter would be trouble to David so he said, "Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain." Saul commanded his servants, "Commune with David secretly and tell him, 'Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee: now therefore be the king's son in law.'" And so, the king servants spoke these words in the ears of David. David answered and said, "Does it seem insignificant to you to be a king's son-in-law considering that I am a poor man and lightly esteemed?" Then Saul's servants went back and told Saul what David said. Then Saul said, "Thus shall ye say to David, 'The king does not want a dowry (a gift for his daughter) but rather 100 foreskins of his enemies the Philistines.'" King Saul didn't really want the foreskins, he wanted David to get killed while fighting the Philistines. After the servants told David what the King said, David was pleased to be the king's son-in-law. So David and his men went and killed 200 Philistines and David brought their foreskins to the King. Saul's plan didn't work. God help David to slay the king's enemies. Saul then gave David his daughter Michal to wife. Saul grew more afraid of David because he could see that the hand of the Lord was with David. He also saw that his daughter Michal loved David. This made Saul more and more jealous and he became more of an enemy to David. All the people loved David because he behaved himself more and more wisely.

  • Easu_sells_his_birthright_to_Jacob

    Esau sells his birthright to Jacob A birthright is a very special honor given to the eldest son in Israel's tradition. The older son with the birthright receives double portions of the inheritance and is named the leader of the clan. So, this was no minute trinket Esau was giving up when he decided to sell his birthright to Jacob. Who Is To Blame? We are tempted to place all the blame on Jacob for taking advantage of Esau but there is another angle to this story. Esau showed that he cared very little about the spiritual gifts he had received and traded it away without much thought -- for a bowl of soup and some bread. If Esau had decided to keep his birthright he would have received untold blessings in the future. Yet, he decided to go after the immediate pleasures of life instead of waiting for what was rightfully his. Esau reacted to this situation primarily on impulse without a second thought of how it would affect his future and the future of generations to come.

  • David and Goliath

    The story of David and Goliath comes from 1 Samuel 17. The Israelites are fighting the Philistines, whose best warrior - Goliath - repeatedly offers to meet the Israelites' best warrior in man-to-man combat to decide the whole battle. None of the trained Israelite soldiers is brave enough to fight the giant Goliath, until David - a shepherd boy who is too young to be a soldier - accepts the challenge. Saul, the Israelite leader, offers David armor and weapons, but the boy is untrained and refuses them. Instead, he goes out with his slingshot, and confronts the enemy. He hits Goliath in the head with a stone, knocking the giant down, and then grabs Goliath's sword and cuts off his head. The Philistines honorably retired as pacted and the Israelites are saved. David's special strength comes from God, and the story illustrates the triumph of good over evil.

  • Friction in the Kadesh and Water in Meribah

    The flow of water from the famous spring for some reason had ceased. In their distress the people became impatient and petulant. At the door of the tent of meeting Moses and Aaron received the Lord's instructions. In his speech of remonstrance to the people Moses seemed to glorify himself and his brother; and instead of speaking to the rock as God had commanded, he struck it twice with his rod. The flow of water was at once restored; but Moses and Aaron were heavily punished because they did not sanctify God in the eyes of the children of Israel. The "Waters of Meribah" was the name given to this scene of strife. The incident is referred to in Numbers 20:24, and Deuteronomy 32:51 (merobhath qadhesh, the King James Version "Meribah-Kadesh," the Revised Version (British and American) "Meribah of Kadesh"). In Psalm 81:7 God appears as having tested Israel here. The sin of Israel and the ensuing calamity to Moses are alluded to in Psalm 106:32.

  • The_annointing_of_Saul_as_Israels_first_king

    Saul was the first king of the united Kingdom of Israel. He was anointed by the prophet Samuel and reigned from Gibeah. He fell on his sword to avoid capture in the battle against the Philistines at Mount Gilboa, during which three of his sons were also killed. The succession to his throne was contested by Ish-bosheth, his only surviving son, and his son-in-law David, who eventually prevailed. The main account of Saul's life and reign is found in the Books of Samuel.

  • The_call_of_Moses

    This lesson records the call of Moses to deliver the children of Israel. God often skips many generations of earthly rulers and kingdoms with a verse or a word. However, He takes two entire chapters to tell us of His encounter with Moses at the burning bush. In this lesson, God emphasizes His power as opposed to the ability of man. The bush burns supernaturally. But the power is not in the bush, it is in the God who caused the bush to burn. When God puts His touch on something, any old bush will do. Moses has to learn this lesson about himself. Forty years earlier, he had learned that he could not deliver Israel. Now, he has to learn that God can use him anyway.

  • Daniel and three friends in fiery furnace

    13 Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king,14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, "Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? 15 Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?"

  • Saul conquers Philistine

    Saul first conquered the Ammonites after hearing of their king, Nahash, laying siege to Jabesh in Gilead. The king only agreed to spare the inhabitants on the condition that they put out their right eyes. They asked for seven in which they could seek help from their brethren. They dispatched messengers to Gibeah, probably unaware of Saul's election as king, who stated their case to the people. After returning from the field, Saul heard their grave news, and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him. Deeply angered, he hewed in pieces a yoke of oxen and sent them throughout all of Israel, calling the people to rally around him in defense of their countrymen. This call was answered when three hundred thousand stood together at Bezek. On the following day Saul arranged the army into three divisions, who forced their way into the enemy's camp from three different sides, and routed then completely (1 Samuel 11:1-11).

  • Daniel in Lion's Den

    Some governors were jealous of Daniel because King Darius favoured him, and sought an opportunity to remove him from power. Daniel contined to obey God's laws, so they could not find fault in anything he did. The governors met and said, "We will not be able to find fault with him, unless we use his faith against him." They knew they could take advantage of the king's pride and trick him into removing Daniel from power. They sought a meeting with the king and lied to him, "Oh King, the governors, captains, princes, and counsellors have come together to create a new law. We say that if any man pray to their God or any other man except for you for thirty days, the man should be thrown in the den of lions.

As Judge, she was also leader of the army of Israel.

  • Cain and Abel

    In the Bible, Cain and Abel are two sons of Adam and Eve. The Qur'an mentions the story, calling them the two sons of Adam. Cain is described as a crop farmer and his younger brother Abel as a shepherd. Genesis 4:2 Cain is portrayed as sinful, committing the first murder by killing his brother, after God rejected his offerings of produce but accepted Abel's sacrifice "from the firstborn of his flock and from their fats".Genesis 4:1,3 Thus, Cain was the first human born, and Abel the first to die. The oldest known copy of the Biblical narration is from the 1st century Dead Sea Scrolls. Cain and Abel also appear in a number of other texts, and the story is the subject of various interpretations. Abel, the first murder victim, is sometimes seen as the first martyr; while Cain, the first murderer, is sometimes seen as an ancestor of evil. A few scholars suggest the pericope may have been based on a Sumerian story representing the conflict between nomadic shepherds and settled farmers. Others think that it may refer to the days in which agriculture began to replace the ways of the hunter-gatherer. Allusions to Cain and Abel as an archetype of fratricide persist in numerous references and retellings, through medieval art and Shakespearean works up to present day fiction. Some Jewish traditions hold Cain to have been fathered by the serpent from the Garden of Eden.

  • Joseph and Potiphar

    Potiphar or Potifar /ˈpɒtɨfər/is a person in the Book of Genesis's account of Joseph. Potiphar is said to be the captain of the palace guard and is referred to without name in the Quran. Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers, is taken to Egypt where he is sold to Potiphar as a household slave. Potiphar makes Joseph the head of his household, but Potiphar's wife, furious at Joseph for resisting her attempts to seduce him into sleeping with her, accuses him falsely of attempting to rape her. Potiphar casts Joseph into prison, where he comes to the notice of Pharaoh through his ability to interpret the dreams of other prisoners.

  • Burning bush

    The burning bush is an event described by the Book of Exodus (3:1-21) as being located on Mount Horeb; according to the narrative, the bush was on fire, but was not consumed by the flames, hence the name. In the narrative, the burning bush is the location at which Moses was appointed by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into Canaan.

  • The_capture_of_Jerusalem_and_recovery_of_the_Ark_by_David

    In 1 Samuel chapter 4, the Ark of the Covenant was captured by the Philistines, who killed the two sons of Eli, the priest. In verse 4:4, this was clearly identified as the ark of the Exodus legend, with the mercy seat on which the Lord of hosts sat between the two cherubim. Although the Ark of the Covenant was said to have been built at enormous expense, to support the mercy seat on which God sat while he travelled with the Israelites and to keep the sacred tablets of the ten commandments, Psalm 132 says this most sacred artefact of the Hebrews was found abandoned in a field. Second Samuel chapter 6 describes how David recovered the Ark and moved it to its place in the tabernacle. The author had no doubt that God was still seated 'between the cherubim', with frequent references such as David dancing 'before the Lord', and God blessing a household for hosting the ark. After allowing this treasure to be captured and later allowing it to be lost, God must have had a renewed interest in it: for example he killed Uzzah just for touching the ark in order to steady it while it was being transported on a cart. So, the Ark had been captured and returned, then abandoned, but found and recovered. If it really did exist, it must have been lost yet again, but there is no record of such an event.

  • God answers Job out of the whirlwind

    God IS revealed in Nature and Scripture BOTH!!! Modern religious teachers often forget this. The last five chapters of the Old Testament book of Job provide an excellent illustration. God's answer to Job's question of why he was going through all that hardship, is God's four chapter lecture on the wonders of nature, with a few comments. God does not employ some kind of theological lecture, or scripture! Nature gives sufficient answer.

  • God's message to Abraham

    The Gospel taught by Jesus and the apostles was not fundamentally different from what was understood by Abraham. God, through the Scriptures, "Preached before the gospel unto Abraham" (Gal. 3:8). So crucial are these promises that Peter started and ended his public proclamation of the Gospel with reference to them (Acts 3: 13,25).If we can understand what was taught to Abraham, we will then have a very basic picture of the Christian Gospel.

  • Crossing of River Jordan

    Crossing the Jordan 3 Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. 2 After three days the officers went throughout the camp, 3 giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. 4 Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. But keep a distance of about two thousand cubits[a] between you and the ark; do not go near it.” 5 Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”

  • Rape of Dinah by Shechem

    Genesis 34. Two wrongs do not make a right. The rape of Dinah by Shechem was inexcusable. But the treachery of Jacob’s sons in insisting that the men of the town be circumcised – only to weaken them so that they could attack and kill them – was also wrong on so many levels. Fast forward into the future and you will see the consequences of this tragedy: Simeon and Levi had taken it upon himself to avenge Dinah’s rape by murdering the inhabitants of Shechem. They would both lose the inheritance due to the oldest and it would go to Judah instead (Reuben would lose this privilege for another reason). Jacob was right in assuming that this event would cause lasting enmity between his family and the Canaanites and Perrizites. Some of the Israelites who would return to possess this land were actually descendants of the Shechemites (29). LORD, help us to see that there can be lasting consequences when we insist on getting even with those who have wronged us.

Wicked people will not oppress them anymore, as they did at the beginning 11 and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also give you rest from all your enemies. “‘The Lord declares to you that the Lord himself will establish a house for you: 12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever. ’” 17 Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.

  • Rebuilding of Wall of Jerusalem

    When the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem, the Bible noted the following, "And all the army of the Chaldeans who were with the captain of the guard broke down the walls of Jerusalem all around" (II Kings 25:10; also Jeremiah 52:14). Seventy years later, Nehemiah heard of the destruction and wanted to repair the walls. "And they said to me, "The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire."" (Nehemiah 1:3). Nehemiah arrived and inspected the walls. "Then I arose in the night, I and a few men with me; I told no one what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem; nor was there any animal with me, except the one on which I rode. And I went out by night through the Valley Gate to the Serpent Well and the Refuse Gate, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem which were broken down and its gates which were burned with fire. Then I went on to the Fountain Gate and to the King's Pool, but there was no room for the animal under me to pass. So I went up in the night by the valley, and viewed the wall; then I turned back and entered by the Valley Gate, and so returned" (Nehemiah 2:12-15).

It marks the point in the Exodus at which the Israelites leave Egypt and enter into their wilderness wanderings.

They spoke out against God and Moses: "Why did you drag us out of Egypt to die in this godforsaken country? No decent food; no water—we can't stomach this stuff any longer." 6-7 So God sent poisonous snakes among the people; they bit them and many in Israel died. The people came to Moses and said, "We sinned when we spoke out against God and you. Pray to God; ask him to take these snakes from us." Moses prayed for the people. 8 God said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it on a flagpole: Whoever is bitten and looks at it will live." 9 So Moses made a snake of fiery copper and put it on top of a flagpole. Anyone bitten by a snake who then looked at the copper snake lived.

  • Idolatry of King Solomom
  • Joseph sold to Egypt

    In reading Genesis 37:36 and the first part of Genesis 37:28, perhaps the Midianites were the ones who arranged the buying and selling of Joseph. The Midianites are described as merchants in Genesis 37:28. And, in reading Genesis 39:1 and the second part of Genesis 37:28, it seems clear that the Ishmaelites physically carried out the transport and sale of Joseph. Both tribes were responsible and accountable for the sale of Joseph. Incidentally, the Midianites and the Ishmaelites were related. The Ishmaelites were descendents of Abraham through Hagar. And the Midianites were descendants of Abraham through Keturah.

  • Rebellion of Absalum and King David

    Murder among Brothers David had a number of sons, of whom four, Amnon, Absalom, Adoniah, and Solomon became conspicuous in the history of Israel. Amnon, the son of Ahinoam of Jezreel, was David's first-born. His brother Absalom, the son of David's other wife, was famous for his splendid appearance. His long and luxuriant hair was his peculiar pride. Absalom had a sister named Tamar, who was very fair. Once Amnon deeply offended her, which exceedingly enraged Absalom. Between Absalom and his half-brother Amnon there was now kindled a terrible feud which could only be quenched in the life-blood of the offender.

  • Jewish Masscre by Haman

    Mordecai was the lone Jew in the king's gate. Mordecai job was to represent the Jews and translate the king's order for the Jewish community. Mordecai said that he does not bow because he is Jewish. Haman wanted to kill Mordecai and end the disobedience, but could not ask the king to kill Mordecai because the king did not make the order that the leaders at the king's gate must bow. Killing Mordecai would not solve Haman's problem because a new Jewish representative will take his place and will not bow. So Haman decided to kill the whole nation of Mordecai and Mordecai himself, and then there will be no need for a new Jewish representative, who might not bow to him.

  • David and Bathsheba

    Many tragic incidents occur as the unexpected outcome of a sequence of events. Certainly that is the case with King David. A little vacation from war leads to a day spent in bed, followed by a stroll along the roof of his palace as night begins to fall on Jerusalem. By chance, David sees a woman bathing herself, a sight which David fixes upon, and then follows up on with an investigation as to her identity. The woman is shortly summoned to the palace and then to his bedroom, where David sleeps with her, even though he has discovered she is the wife of Uriah, a warrior who is fighting for the army of Israel. The woman becomes pregnant, and so David calls Uriah home, hoping it will be thought that he has gotten his wife pregnant. When this does not work, David gives orders to Joab, the commander of the army, which arranges for Uriah's death in battle. It looks like the perfect crime, but David's sin is discovered and dealt with by Nathan, the prophet of God.

  • Giving_of_Abrahamic_Covenant

    A covenant is an agreement between two parties. There are two types of covenants: conditional and unconditional. A conditional or bilateral covenant is an agreement that is binding on both parties for its fulfillment. Both parties agree to fulfill certain conditions. If either party fails to meet their responsibilities, the covenant is broken and neither party has to fulfill the expectations of the covenant. An unconditional or unilateral covenant is an agreement between two parties, but only one of the two parties has to do something. Nothing is required of the other party. The Abrahamic Covenant is an unconditional covenant. God made promises to Abraham that required nothing of Abraham. Genesis 15:18-21 describes a part of the Abrahamic Covenant, specifically dealing with the dimensions of the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants.

  • Demolition of Babel Tower

    According to the biblical account, a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating from the east, came to the land of Shinar, where they resolved to build a city with a tower "with its top in the heavens...lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth." God came down to see what they did and said: "They are one people and have one language, and nothing will be withholden from them which they purpose to do." So God said, "Come, let us go down and confound their speech." And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city, which was called Babel "because God there confounded the language of all the Earth."(Genesis 11:5-8).

    Saul’s refusal to totally annihilate the Amalekites costs him his kingdom. It is a most serious sin. Our text not only exposes Saul’s sin, it may very well expose our own. Saul is willing to do things we might never even consider – like killing little children. Would we have put the Amalekite children to death as Saul did? If not, why not? Our text addresses the nature of Saul’s disobedience which is very much like the disobedience prevalent among Christians today. Our text holds important lessons for us to learn about Saul’s disobedience and its consequences and about our own disobedience to God’s commands as well.

  • Sarah and Abimelech

    Abraham and Abimelech The second story is split into two parts. The first part is in Genesis 20:1-16 and the second in Genesis 21:22-34. The first part begins with Abraham emigrating to the southern region of Gerar, whose king is named Abimelech. (Note that, by this time, God has changed Abram and Sarai's names to Abraham and Sarah, respectively, as stated at Genesis 17:5,15.) Abraham states that Sarah, his wife, is really his sister, leading Abimelech to try to take Sarah as a wife; however, God intervened before Abimelech touched Sarah. God visits Abimelech in a dream and tells him the truth, acknowledging that Abimelech made the mistake innocently, but ordering Abimelech to restore Sarah to Abraham. Abimelech complains to Abraham, who states that he didn't exactly lie, since Sarah is his half-sister. Abimelech rebuking Abraham by Wenceslas Hollar. Abimelech asks Abraham, "What has thou done unto us?" Abimelech then restores Sarah to Abraham, and gives him gifts of livestock and servants by way of apology, and also allows Abraham to reside anywhere in Gerar. Abimelech also gives 1000 pieces of silver to Abraham to reprove Sarah by a covering of the eyes.

  • Conquest of the north by the Assyrians

    The Northern Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Neo-Assyrian monarchs, Tiglath-Pileser III (Pul) and Shalmaneser V. The later Assyrian rulers Sargon II and his son and successor, Sennacherib, were responsible for finishing the twenty year demise of Israel's northern ten tribe kingdom. Sennacherib also invaded some parts of the Southern Kingdom of Judah. He records forty-six fortified towns captured from Judah, and presumably carried away into Assyria. Jerusalem was besieged, but not taken. The tribes exiled by Assyria later became known as the Ten Lost Tribes.

  • Battle of the Vale of Siddim

    background: In the days of Lot, before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, The Elamite empire occupied the Land of Canaan which included all of the Jordan River Plain and many surrounding tribes and cities. The occupation was under the rule of King Chedorlaomer for twelve years. In the thirteenth year, five kings of the cities of the Jordan plain revolted against Elamite rule. According to Jewish tradition, the revolt started with refusing to pay tribute to the Elamite empire. This triggered Chedorlaomer to assemble forces from the four main directions of Mesopotamia. Chedorlaomer's campaign to the Jordan plains began with sacking and looting every city along the way.(Genesis 14:1–7)

  • Sansom and Temptation of Delilah

    Samson and Delilah - Story Summary: When Samson fell for Delilah, a woman from the Valley of Sorek, it marked the beginning of his downfall and eventual demise. It didn't take long for the rich and powerful Philistine rulers to learn of the affair and immediately pay a visit to Delilah. Using her powers of seduction and deception, Delilah persistently wore down Samson with her repeated requests, until he finally divulged the crucial information. Having taken the Nazirite vow at birth, Samson had been set apart to God. As part of that vow, his hair was never to be cut. When Samson told Delilah that his strength would leave him if a razor were to be used on his head, she cunningly crafted her plan with the Philistine rulers. While Samson slept on her lap, Delilah called in a co-conspirator to shave off the seven braids of his hair. Subdued and weak, Samson was captured. As he slaved at grinding grain, his hair began to grow, but the careless Philistines paid no attention. And in spite of his horrible failures and sins of great consequence, Samson's heart now turned to the Lord. He was humbled. He prayed to God—a first—and God answered. Rather than killing him, the Philistines preferred to humiliated him by gouging out his eyes and subjecting him to hard labor in a Gaza prison.

  • Friendship between David and Jonathan

    David were heroic figures of the Kingdom of Israel, whose covenant was recorded favourably in the books of Samuel. Jonathan was the son of Saul, king of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, and David was the son of Jesse of Bethlehem and Jonathan's presumed rival for the crown. David became king. The covenant the two men had formed eventually led to David graciously seating Jonathan's son Mephibosheth, a cripple, at his own royal table instead of eradicating the former king Saul's line. The biblical text does not explicitly depict the nature of the relationship between David and Jonathan. The traditional and mainstream religious interpretation of the relationship has been one of platonic love and an example of homosociality. Some later Medieval and Renaissance literature drew upon the story to underline strong personal friendships between men, some of which involved romantic love and could perhaps be described as romantic friendships. In modern times, some scholars, writers and activists have emphasized what they interpret as elements of homoeroticism (chaste or otherwise) in the story.

    King Josiah tried to reform the religion of his kingdom to make monotheism the official religion, with Yahweh (God) as the only God of Judah, with the Temple in Jerusalem as the only place of worship. Some of the laws of Moses were written down at this time as part of Josiah's Deuteronomistic reforms, including an injunction to worship God alone. However, many of the laws attributed to Moses were not written until the Babylonian Exile or later, and were therefore unknown to Josiah. Much of what we now attribute to Moses should be attributed to authors of the first millennium BCE, including the Deuteronomist who wrote during the reign of Josiah.

  • Passovers

    Passover is a Jewish festival. It commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.

  • Building of Temple

    After the death of his father David, Solomon issued the orders for the building of the First Temple to commence: You know that my father David could not build a house for the name of the Lord his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side until the Lord put his foes under the soles of his feet. (1 Kings 5:3). The building of the First Temple was a monumental task. Phoenician craftsmen were employed to build the Temple. Construction began in the fourth year of Solomon's reign and took seven years: Then King Solomon raised up a labor force out of all Israel - and the labor force was thirty thousand men . . . Solomon selected seventy thousand men to bear burdens, eighty thousand to quarry stone in the mountains, and three thousand six hundred to oversee them. (1 Kings 5:13; 2 Chronicles 2:2).

  • The_Exodus_from_Egypt

    Because of an inscription from the reign of Merenptah, who succeeded Ramesses II on the throne, it has been suggested that the event of the Exodus should not be dated much later than the middle of the 13th Century BC. In the last lines of this inscription, carved on a stela set up to commemorate Merenptah's victory over the Libyans in his fifth year on the throne (about 1209 or 1208 BC), the king boasts of his victories over various peoples and places in Syria-Palestine. Here, he claims, with the common exaggeration of royal inscriptions, that "Israel is desolate, and has no seed". Clearly, Merenptah's army had victoriously fought some part of Israel, and the message to us today is clear. By this point in history, the Israelites were in the land of Canaan though the account does not really help us to date their actual arrival. Hence, the majority view among scholars is that the Exodus must have taken place by at least the 13th Century BC. Moses, of course, plays an obviously important role in the Exodus. The Bible tells us that he was born in Egypt to slave parents and saved from a genocidal policy of the pharaoh when his mother places him adrift on the Nile in a basket. The basket was then found by a daughter of the king, and he was thus brought up at the royal court. However, he would grow up to become the Israelite's leader, deliverer in to freedom and lawgiver.

  • Reconciliation_of_Jacob_and_Esau

    When Jacob lifted his face, on the horizon in the distance, it looked like Esau was coming bringing along with him four hundred men. Jacob had spent the night face to face with God and made preparations to meet face to face with man. His resolve was made up. He had turned it all over to God, and standing at the lead, he went forward. Until he arrived at Esau's position, he lowered himself down to the ground seven times. Then, Esau came running. Jacob couldn't run away or hide now. Since God struck the joint of his hip, he didn't have the option to run away. Right now, though, Jacob wasn't depending any more on his own power and strength. The only thing that mattered was that he had been forgiven and blessed by God. That's right, the rock that anybody can ultimately depend on is only the forgiveness and the blessing of God. 5. The brother running to him came up to him, and a surprising thing happened. What Jacob saw there was not the figure of a brother crazed with anger and brandishing a sword. Esau welcomed him with opened arms, he hugged him, held his head, and kissed him. Esau was weeping. Jacob wept with him. So, reconciliation took place in a manner which far exceeded Jacob's thoughts on it.

  • Golden Calf

    In Hebrew, the incident is known "The Sin of the Calf". It is first mentioned in Exodus 32:4. Bull worship was common in many cultures. In Egypt, whence according to the Exodus narrative the Hebrews had recently come, the Apis Bull was a comparable object of worship, which some believe the Hebrews were reviving in the wilderness;[1] alternatively, some believe the God of Israel was associated with or pictured as a calf/bull deity through the process of religious assimilation and syncretism. Among the Egyptians' and Hebrews' neighbors in the Ancient Near East and in the Aegean, the Aurochs, the wild bull, was widely worshipped, often as the Lunar Bull and as the creature of El.

  • Meeting of Lot and Boas

    According to Josephus, he lived at the time of Eli. Son of Rachab and Salma, he was a rich landowner who noticed Ruth, the widowed Moabite daughter-in-law of Naomi, a relative of hers, gleaning grain from his fields. He soon learns of the difficult circumstances her family is in and Ruth's loyalty to Naomi. In response, Boaz invites her to eat with him and his workers regularly as well as deliberately leaving grain for her to claim while keeping a protective eye on her. It should be noted that the tradition of Boaz descending from a Canaanite prostitute stems from confusion regarding the identity of the mother of Boaz, who is not mentioned in the Tanakh but is in the Genealogical record of Matthew; Because they have the same name some people believe she is the same person mentioned in Joshua, but that is not supported by linguistic and textual evidence. Boaz married Ruth and, consequently, preserved the name of Elimelech, Naomi's deceased husband, a sort of levirate. Their firstborn was considered a son of Elimelech's lineage (Rt-4.5, 10). Boaz purchased the family lands that Naomi had sold, and restituted them to Elimelech's lineage (vv. 3, 7–10). For those substituting, redeeming factors, Ruth's husband is considered by Christians to be a type of Jesus of Nazareth, whom they consider to be the Messiah. Although Boaz is noted to be much older than Ruth in the traditional account[13] and he marries her for Naomi's sake, most dramatic adaptations[citation needed] have Boaz as a handsome young man so as to enhance the romantic nature of the story. Their son was Obed, father of Jesse, and grandfather of David. Boaz is mentioned in both the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke as an ancestor of Jesus, "according to the flesh".

  • Jeroboam and his two golden calves

    After the death of Solomon the usurper Jeroboam sought to strengthen his hold on the northern 10 tribes by making two golden calves. The declarations of Aaron's followers and Jeroboam are almost identical: 'These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt' (Exod 32:4, 8); 'Behold your gods, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt (1 Kings 12:28) After making the golden calf or golden calves both Aaron and Jeroboam celebrate festivals. Aaron builds an altar and Jeroboam ascends an altar (Exod 32:5–6; 1 Kings 12:32–33). Richard Elliott Friedman says "at a minimum we can say that the writer of the golden calf account in Exodus seems to have taken the words that were traditionally ascribed to Jeroboam and placed them in the mouths of the people." Friedman believes that the story was turned into a polemic, exaggerating the throne platform decoration into idolatory, by a family of priests sidelined by Jeroboam.[5]

  • Seizure of Vineyard by Naboth

    Naboth "the Jezreelite," is the central figure of a story from the Old Testament. According to the story, Naboth was the owner of a plot on the eastern slope of the hill of Jezreel. Described as a small "plat of ground", the vineyard seems to have been all he possessed and lay close to the palace of Ahab, who wished to acquire to "have it for a garden of herbs" (probably as a ceremonial garden for Baal worship). Naboth, however, had inherited his land from his father, and, according to Jewish law, could not alienate it. Accordingly, he refused to sell it to the king. Ahab became deeply dejected, at not being able to procure the vineyard. Returning to his palace, he collapsed with depression, lying on his bed, his face to the wall, and refused to eat. His wife, Jezebel, after learning the reason for his depression, (in addition to being irritated at the king's emotional state urging him to return to his entertainment saying mockingly, "Are you the king or aren't you?") promised that she would obtain the vineyard for him. To do so, she plotted to kill Naboth by mock trial, and then told Ahab to take possession of the vineyard as the legal heir. As punishment for this action, the prophet Elijah visited Ahab while he was in the vineyard, pronouncing doom on him. Ahab humbled himself at Elijah's words, and was spared accordingly, with the prophesied destruction being visited instead on his son Joram.

  • Birth of Samuel

    Samuel was born about 1105BC and was the son of Elkanah and Hannah, from the tribe of Levi. Samuel was born in answer to Hannah’s prayers. Samuel's mother Hannah dedicated Samuel from birth to the Lord God and Samuel served God all his life. Samuel was asked by God to anoint two kings. First Saul as king then David as king. In Hebrew, Samuel means: heard of God because God heard Hannah’s prayers

  • Death of Moses

    The Death of Moses 34 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, 2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”

  • Joseph_in_prison

    Joseph in Prison Imprisoned with Joseph were two men who recognized his piety and righteousness. Both had been plagued by vivid dreams and now hoped Joseph would be able to interpret the dreams for them. One man saw a dream in which he was pressing wine, the other saw a dream in which birds were eating bread from his head. Joseph said, “I will inform you of the meaning of these dreams before your next meal is served”.

  • Jacob Family Move to Egypt

    Joseph throws his arms around his brothers, and he hugs and kisses them all. When Phar´aoh hears that Joseph’s brothers have come, he tells Joseph: ‘Let them take wagons and go get their father and their families and come back here. I will give them the best land in all Egypt.’ That is what they did. Here you can see Joseph meeting his father when he came to Egypt with his whole family. Jacob’s family had become very big. Altogether there were 70 when they moved to Egypt, counting Jacob and his children and grandchildren. But there were also the wives, and probably many servants too. These all settled in Egypt. They were called Israelites, because God had changed the name of Jacob to Israel. The Israelites became a very special people to God, as we will see later.

(Neh. 8:8) The return to Jerusalem from 70 years of Babylonian captivity occurred in three stages: 1)- Zerubbabel returns to build the temple, 2)- after a gap of 57 years Ezra returns to reform the people and 3)- 12 years later Nehemiah returns to rebuild the walls of the city. It was immediately following the reconstruction of the city walls that events of Nehemiah chapter eight took place. Nehemiah brought great energy and courage to the building of the walls. The success of this project led to a dramatic change in the attitude of the people of Judah. Their self-respect had been recovered by their victory over their enemies; their awareness of God's presence had been stirred. Gathering together to celebrate and praise God, Nehemiah put forward Ezra the scribe "to bring out the Book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded for Israel" (8:1). All the people gathered to hear Ezra read and interpret the words

  • Jacob and Laban

    When Jacob reached Haram, almost the first person he met was his uncle Laban's younger daughter, Rachel, to whom he was immediately attracted. Laban gave Jacob a warm welcome and employed him as a shepherd, on the understanding that in return for seven years' work he should be allowed to marry Rachel. The seven years passed quickly, but after the marriage ceremony Jacob discovered that his veiled bride was not Rachel, but her elder sister Leah. When Jacob protested, Laban replied that custom did not permit a younger sister to be married before the elder, but agreed to let him marry Rachel as his second wife as soon as the celebrations for his marriage to Leah were over, provided he would undertake to work for him for a further seven years. (ibid. ch. 29, vv. 1-30).

  • The_Babylonian_Captivity_of_the_southern_kingdom

    Nebuchadnezzar was the king of the most powerful nation on earth at this time. His father, Nabopolassar, had founded the Babylonian empire after defeating the Assyrians and developing the commerce and massive building program. He extended the empire as far as the Mediterranean Sea. Three waves of captives The Jewish captives were settled along the Chebar River and treated as colonists. They were given freedom to lead normal lives as long as they remained politically loyal to the Babylonian government. Daniel became a government official. Many became quite wealthy in Babylon and their families remained there after the seventy years of captivity were over. The first group of captives to be led away to Babylon included the prophet Daniel in 605 B.C. A few years later in 597 B.C. ten thousand captives, including the prophet Ezekiel followed. Finally, when the city of Jerusalem fell in 586 B.C. the final captives were led away to the banks of the River Chebar in Babylon (2 Kings 24:1-18; 2 Chron. 36:11-21; Jer. 52:1-11; Ezek. 1:1-2; Daniel 1:1-7). The important lesson from the captivity was the purging of idolatry from the hearts of God’s people. They never forgot the penalty of turning from Yahweh to follow other gods. They were more faithful to Him in Babylon than in Jerusalem.

  • Fall_of_man

    Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’? ” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

  • David's extermination of Amalekites

    God knowѕ the future. God knew whаt the results wоuld be іf Israel did nоt completely eradicate thе Amalekites. If Israel did not carry out God’s orders, thе Amalekites wоuld cоme back tо “haunt” the Israelites аgаіn аnd again. Saul claimed to havе killed еverуonе but thе Amalekite king Agag (1 Samuel 15:20). Obviously Saul waѕ lying…just а couple оf decades later thеre wеrе еnоugh Amalekites tо tаke David аnd his men’s families captive (1 Samuel 30:1-2). After David аnd hіs men attacked thе Amalekites аnd rescued their families, 400 Amalekites escaped. If Saul hаd fulfilled what God hаd commanded him, thіѕ never would havе occurred. Several hundred years later, a descendant of Agag, Haman, trіеd tо havе the entire Jewish people exterminated (see the book оf Esther). So, Saul’s incomplete obedience аlmost resulted іn Israel’s destruction. God knew thіs wоuld occur, so He ordered thе extermination of the Amalekites ahead оf time.

  • Ascension of David

    Saul and Jonathan are killed by the Philistines at Mount Gilboa. David mourns their death, then goes up to Hebron, where he is anointed king over Judah; in the north, Saul's son Ish-Bosheth is king of the tribes of Israel. War ensues between Ish-Bosheth and David, until Ish-Bosheth is murdered. The assassins bring the head of Ish-Bosheth to David hoping for reward, but David executes them for their crime against the Lord's anointed. Yet with the death of the son of Saul, the elders of Israel come to Hebron, and David, 37 years old, is anointed King over Israel and Judah. David conquers the Jebusite fortress of Jerusalem, and makes it his capital, and "Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, also carpenters and masons who built David a house." David brings the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, intending to build a temple, but God, speaking to the prophet Nathan, forbids it, saying the temple must wait for a future generation. God makes a covenant with David, promising that he will establish the house of David eternally: "Your throne shall be established forever." With Yahweh's help David is victorious over his people's enemies. The Philistines are subdued, the Moabites to the east pay tribute, and Hadadezer of Zobah, from whom David takes gold shields and bronze vessels.

    Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: "On the first day of the first month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. You shall put in it the ark of the Testimony, and partition off the ark with the veil. You shall bring in the table and arrange the things that are to be set in order on it; and you shall bring in the lampstand and light its lamps. You shall also set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the Testimony, and put up the screen for the door of the tabernacle."

  • Joseph's family settles in Gushen

    How did Joseph’s family end up living in Egypt? Joseph was released from prison and put in the service of the Pharaoh as second in command of Egypt because he correctly interpreted the Pharaoh’s dream that a great famine was coming. He predicted 7 years of good harvest followed by 7 years of famine. Joseph recommended that Egypt make great stores of food to prepare for the famine. This famine not only affected Egypt but also Israel. Joseph’s father, Jacob, sent his sons to Egypt to get food during the famine. At first Joseph did not reveal who he was to his brothers but finally revealed himself and Jacob and Joseph’s brothers were invited to come and live in Egypt. The Hebrew people (Israelites) were the descendants of this group.

He will not come before it with shield or build a siege ramp against it. 33 By the way that he came he will return; he will not enter this city, declares the Lord. 34 I will defend this city and save it, for my sake and for the sake of David my servant.’” 35 That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies!

  • David's conquest of Ammon

    Second book of Samuel, In chapter 10, David sends a delegation to the sons of Ammon to grieve with them over the death of their king. However, the Ammonites interpret this as a ploy to spy out their land to conquer them and they publicly humiliate those spies. David then gathers his army and goes against the Ammonites and has a great conquest of them.

  • Three imortant relations with God

    Second relation: Relationship among men. As shown in chapter 2:20~22, We have to help each other. We should respect each other, especially in our marriage life. The marriage is the cruel reality. It is kind of carrying crosses against our life. Learn perseverance and then you can stand tall in the center of your life.

  • Wise Judgement by King Solomon

    The story is recounted in 1Kings 3:16-28. Two young women who lived in the same house and who both had an infant son came to Solomon for a judgement. One of the women claimed that the other, after accidentally smothering her own son while sleeping, had exchanged the two children to make it appear that the living child was hers. The other woman denied this and so both women claimed to be the mother of the living son and said that the dead boy belonged to the other. After some deliberation, King Solomon called for a sword to be brought before him. He declared that there is only one fair solution: the live son must be split in two, each woman receiving half of the child. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy's true mother cried out, "Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!" However, the liar, in her bitter jealousy, exclaimed, "It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!" Solomon instantly gave the live baby to the real mother, realizing that the true mother's instincts were to protect her child, while the liar revealed that she did not truly love the child. The reputation of the king greatly increased when all the people of Israel heard of this wise judgment.

  • Jacob_in_Hebron

    Plot against Joseph The house of Jacob dwelt in Hebron,in the land of Canaan. His flocks were often fed in the pastures of Shechem as well as Dothan. Of all the children in his household, he loved Rachel’s firstborn son, Joseph, the most. Thus Joseph’s half brothers were jealous of him and they ridiculed him often. Joseph even told his father about all of his half brothers’ misdeeds. When Joseph was seventeen years old, Jacob made a long coat or tunic of many colors for him. Seeing this, the half brothers began to hate Joseph. Then Joseph began to have dreams that implied that his family would bow down to him. When he told his brothers about these dreams, it drove them to conspire against him. When Jacob heard of these dreams, he rebuked his son for proposing the idea that the house of Jacob would even bow down to Joseph. Yet, he contemplated his son’s words about these dreams. (Genesis 37:1-11) Sometime afterward, the sons of Jacob by Leah, Bilhah and Zilpah, were feeding his flocks in Shechem. Jacob wanted to know how things were doing, so he asked Joseph to go down there and return with a report. This was the last time he would ever see his son in Hebron. Later that day, the report that Jacob ended up receiving came from Joseph's brothers who brought before him a coat laden with blood. Jacob identified the coat as the one he made for Joseph. At that moment he cried “It is my son’s tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces.” He rent his clothes and put sackcloth around his waist mourning for days. No one from the house of Jacob could comfort him during this time of bereavement. (Genesis 37:31-35) The truth was, Jacob’s son Joseph, was turned on by his brothers and ultimately sold into slavery on a caravan headed for Egypt. (Genesis 37:36)

  • Jacob and Ladder

    Jacob left Beersheba, and went toward Haran. He came to the place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it [or "beside him"] and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your descendants; and your descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and by you and your descendants shall all the families of the earth bless themselves. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done that of which I have spoken to you." Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place; and I did not know it." And he was afraid, and said, "This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."

    Isaiah 2:1~6 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: In the last days the mountain of the LORD'S temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. 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. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD. You have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans.

  • Pillar of Salt

    She became a pillar of salt - The vast variety of opinions, both ancient and modern, on the crime of Lot's wife, her change, and the manner in which that change was effected, are in many cases as unsatisfactory as they are ridiculous. On this point the sacred Scripture says little. God had commanded Lot and his family not to look behind them; the wife of Lot disobeyed this command; she looked back from behind him - Lot, her husband, and she became a pillar of salt. This is all the information the inspired historian has thought proper to give us on this subject; it is true the account is short, but commentators and critics have made it long enough by their laborious glosses.

  • Divine Shepherd

    Psalm 23 portrays God as a shepherd, feeding (verse 1) and leading (verse 3) his flock. The "rod and staff" (verse 4) are also the implements of a shepherd. Some commentators see the shepherd imagery pervading the entire psalm. J. Douglas MacMillan argues that "you prepare a table for me" in verse 5 refers to the "old oriental shepherding practice" of using little raised tables to feed sheep. Similarly, "you anoint my head with oil" may refer to an ancient form of backliner—the oil is poured on wounds, and repels flies. MacMillan also notes that "Goodness and mercy" in verse 6 remind him of two sheepdogs coming behind the flock. [edit]In Jewish tradition

  • The_silver_cup

    Joseph ordered his steward to load the brother's donkeys with food and all their money. The money they brought was double what they had from the first trip. Deceptively, Joseph also ordered that his silver cup be put in Benjamin's sack. The following morning the brothers began their journey back to Canaan. At Joseph's command, the steward was to apprehend them and question them about the silver cup. When the steward caught up with the brothers, he seized them and searched their sacks. The steward found the cup in Benjamin's sack just as he had planted it the night before. This caused a stir amongst the brothers. However, they agreed to be escorted back to Egypt. When the Vizier (Joseph) confronted them about the silver cup, he demanded that the one who possessed the cup in his bag become his slave. In response, Judah pleaded with the Vizier that Benjamin be allowed to return to his father, and he himself be kept in Benjamin's place as a slave. (Genesis 44)

  • Birth of Isaac

    It was prophesied to the patriarch Abraham that he would have a son and that his name should be called Isaac. When Abraham became one hundred years old, this son was born to him by his first wife Sarah. Though this was Abraham's second son. it was Sarah’s first and only child. On the eighth day from his birth, Isaac was circumcised, as was necessary for all males of Abraham's household, in order to be in compliance with Yahweh's covenant. After Isaac had been weaned, Sarah saw Ishmael mocking, and urged her husband to banish Hagar and Ishmael so that Isaac would be Abraham's only heir. Abraham was hesitant, but at God's order he listened to his wife's request.

  • Jacob wrestles with an angel at_Peniel

    Jacob then transported his family and flocks across the ford Jabbok by night, then recrossed back to send over his possessions, being left alone in communion with God. There, a mysterious being appeared ("man", Genesis 32:24, 28; or "God", Genesis 32:28, 30, Hosea 12:3, 5; or "angel", Hosea 12:4), and the two wrestled until daybreak. When the being saw that he did not overpower Jacob, he touched Jacob on the sinew of his thigh (the gid hanasheh, גיד הנשה), and as a result, Jacob developed a limp (Genesis 32:31). Because of this, "to this day the people of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket" (Genesis 32:32). This incident is the source of the mitzvah of porging.

When their father came out to meet them, his sons told him that Joseph was still alive, that he was the governor over all of Egypt and that he wanted the house of Israel to move to Egypt. Israel’s heart “stood still” and just couldn’t believe what he was hearing. Looking upon the wagons he declared “Joseph my son is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.” (Genesis 45:16-28)

  • The_enslavement_of_Israel_in_Egypt

    The Israelites Oppressed 1 These are the names of the sons of Israel who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah; 3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin; 4 Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher. 5 The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy[a] in all; Joseph was already in Egypt. 6 Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died, 7 but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them. 8 Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. 9 “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.” 11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly. 15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. 18 Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?” 19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.” 20 So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own. 22 Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

  • Fruit of Good and Evil

    The Eden story, which takes up chapters 2 to 4 of the Book of Genesis, tells how the Abrahamic God creates the first man and puts him in a paradise-garden in Eden. Before making the first woman, God tells the man that he may eat the fruit of any of the trees in the garden except that of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God then forms the first woman (named Eve) and Genesis 2 ends with a note that the man and woman "were naked and felt no shame". A talking snake subsequently tempts the woman to eat the fruit with the promise of knowledge. The woman and the man both eat, become aware of their nakedness and make coverings for themselves. God, aware that the first humans now have knowledge, banishes them from the garden lest they eat from the Tree of Life and live forever.

There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death.” 4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. 5 On the sixth day they are to prepare what they bring in, and that is to be twice as much as they gather on the other days.

  • Plot of Killing of David by Saul

    Plans for the murder of David Saul said to David, "Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the lord's battles." Saul was thinking to himself that instead of him killing David, he would send David to war and his enemies would kill him. Then David said to Saul, "Who am I? And what is my life or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?" David was confused because he came from a lowly family and the king wanted him to marry his daughter. When it came time for the wedding, Saul's daughter was given to another man to marry. I wonder if David felt sad. Saul had another daughter named Michal who loved David. They told Saul and it pleased Saul that they should marry--Saul said in his heart, " I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him." Saul knew that his daughter would be trouble to David so he said, "Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain." Saul commanded his servants, "Commune with David secretly and tell him, 'Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee: now therefore be the king's son in law.'" And so, the king servants spoke these words in the ears of David. David answered and said, "Does it seem insignificant to you to be a king's son-in-law considering that I am a poor man and lightly esteemed?" Then Saul's servants went back and told Saul what David said. Then Saul said, "Thus shall ye say to David, 'The king does not want a dowry (a gift for his daughter) but rather 100 foreskins of his enemies the Philistines.'" King Saul didn't really want the foreskins, he wanted David to get killed while fighting the Philistines. After the servants told David what the King said, David was pleased to be the king's son-in-law. So David and his men went and killed 200 Philistines and David brought their foreskins to the King. Saul's plan didn't work. God help David to slay the king's enemies. Saul then gave David his daughter Michal to wife. Saul grew more afraid of David because he could see that the hand of the Lord was with David. He also saw that his daughter Michal loved David. This made Saul more and more jealous and he became more of an enemy to David. All the people loved David because he behaved himself more and more wisely.

  • Easu_sells_his_birthright_to_Jacob

    Esau sells his birthright to Jacob A birthright is a very special honor given to the eldest son in Israel's tradition. The older son with the birthright receives double portions of the inheritance and is named the leader of the clan. So, this was no minute trinket Esau was giving up when he decided to sell his birthright to Jacob. Who Is To Blame? We are tempted to place all the blame on Jacob for taking advantage of Esau but there is another angle to this story. Esau showed that he cared very little about the spiritual gifts he had received and traded it away without much thought -- for a bowl of soup and some bread. If Esau had decided to keep his birthright he would have received untold blessings in the future. Yet, he decided to go after the immediate pleasures of life instead of waiting for what was rightfully his. Esau reacted to this situation primarily on impulse without a second thought of how it would affect his future and the future of generations to come.

  • David and Goliath

    The story of David and Goliath comes from 1 Samuel 17. The Israelites are fighting the Philistines, whose best warrior - Goliath - repeatedly offers to meet the Israelites' best warrior in man-to-man combat to decide the whole battle. None of the trained Israelite soldiers is brave enough to fight the giant Goliath, until David - a shepherd boy who is too young to be a soldier - accepts the challenge. Saul, the Israelite leader, offers David armor and weapons, but the boy is untrained and refuses them. Instead, he goes out with his slingshot, and confronts the enemy. He hits Goliath in the head with a stone, knocking the giant down, and then grabs Goliath's sword and cuts off his head. The Philistines honorably retired as pacted and the Israelites are saved. David's special strength comes from God, and the story illustrates the triumph of good over evil.

  • Friction in the Kadesh and Water in Meribah

    The flow of water from the famous spring for some reason had ceased. In their distress the people became impatient and petulant. At the door of the tent of meeting Moses and Aaron received the Lord's instructions. In his speech of remonstrance to the people Moses seemed to glorify himself and his brother; and instead of speaking to the rock as God had commanded, he struck it twice with his rod. The flow of water was at once restored; but Moses and Aaron were heavily punished because they did not sanctify God in the eyes of the children of Israel. The "Waters of Meribah" was the name given to this scene of strife. The incident is referred to in Numbers 20:24, and Deuteronomy 32:51 (merobhath qadhesh, the King James Version "Meribah-Kadesh," the Revised Version (British and American) "Meribah of Kadesh"). In Psalm 81:7 God appears as having tested Israel here. The sin of Israel and the ensuing calamity to Moses are alluded to in Psalm 106:32.

    Saul was the first king of the united Kingdom of Israel. He was anointed by the prophet Samuel and reigned from Gibeah. He fell on his sword to avoid capture in the battle against the Philistines at Mount Gilboa, during which three of his sons were also killed. The succession to his throne was contested by Ish-bosheth, his only surviving son, and his son-in-law David, who eventually prevailed. The main account of Saul's life and reign is found in the Books of Samuel.

  • The_call_of_Moses

    This lesson records the call of Moses to deliver the children of Israel. God often skips many generations of earthly rulers and kingdoms with a verse or a word. However, He takes two entire chapters to tell us of His encounter with Moses at the burning bush. In this lesson, God emphasizes His power as opposed to the ability of man. The bush burns supernaturally. But the power is not in the bush, it is in the God who caused the bush to burn. When God puts His touch on something, any old bush will do. Moses has to learn this lesson about himself. Forty years earlier, he had learned that he could not deliver Israel. Now, he has to learn that God can use him anyway.

  • Daniel and three friends in fiery furnace

    13 Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king,14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, "Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the image of gold I have set up? 15 Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?"

  • Saul conquers Philistine

    Saul first conquered the Ammonites after hearing of their king, Nahash, laying siege to Jabesh in Gilead. The king only agreed to spare the inhabitants on the condition that they put out their right eyes. They asked for seven in which they could seek help from their brethren. They dispatched messengers to Gibeah, probably unaware of Saul's election as king, who stated their case to the people. After returning from the field, Saul heard their grave news, and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him. Deeply angered, he hewed in pieces a yoke of oxen and sent them throughout all of Israel, calling the people to rally around him in defense of their countrymen. This call was answered when three hundred thousand stood together at Bezek. On the following day Saul arranged the army into three divisions, who forced their way into the enemy's camp from three different sides, and routed then completely (1 Samuel 11:1-11).

  • Daniel in Lion's Den

    Some governors were jealous of Daniel because King Darius favoured him, and sought an opportunity to remove him from power. Daniel contined to obey God's laws, so they could not find fault in anything he did. The governors met and said, "We will not be able to find fault with him, unless we use his faith against him." They knew they could take advantage of the king's pride and trick him into removing Daniel from power. They sought a meeting with the king and lied to him, "Oh King, the governors, captains, princes, and counsellors have come together to create a new law. We say that if any man pray to their God or any other man except for you for thirty days, the man should be thrown in the den of lions.

  • Deborah the Judge

    Deborah is a unique character in the Bible. She is the only woman to be a Judge of Israel. Her story takes place between the years 1209 and 1169 B.C. She was a prophetess and Judge of Israel, the equivalent of king. How she came to be chosen for this position is not recorded but it is evident in her story that her leadership was honored. As Judge, she was also leader of the army of Israel.

    Daniel 4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.

  • Cain and Abel

    In the Bible, Cain and Abel are two sons of Adam and Eve. The Qur'an mentions the story, calling them the two sons of Adam. Cain is described as a crop farmer and his younger brother Abel as a shepherd. Genesis 4:2 Cain is portrayed as sinful, committing the first murder by killing his brother, after God rejected his offerings of produce but accepted Abel's sacrifice "from the firstborn of his flock and from their fats".Genesis 4:1,3 Thus, Cain was the first human born, and Abel the first to die. The oldest known copy of the Biblical narration is from the 1st century Dead Sea Scrolls. Cain and Abel also appear in a number of other texts, and the story is the subject of various interpretations. Abel, the first murder victim, is sometimes seen as the first martyr; while Cain, the first murderer, is sometimes seen as an ancestor of evil. A few scholars suggest the pericope may have been based on a Sumerian story representing the conflict between nomadic shepherds and settled farmers. Others think that it may refer to the days in which agriculture began to replace the ways of the hunter-gatherer. Allusions to Cain and Abel as an archetype of fratricide persist in numerous references and retellings, through medieval art and Shakespearean works up to present day fiction. Some Jewish traditions hold Cain to have been fathered by the serpent from the Garden of Eden.

  • Joseph and Potiphar

    Potiphar or Potifar /ˈpɒtɨfər/is a person in the Book of Genesis's account of Joseph. Potiphar is said to be the captain of the palace guard and is referred to without name in the Quran. Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers, is taken to Egypt where he is sold to Potiphar as a household slave. Potiphar makes Joseph the head of his household, but Potiphar's wife, furious at Joseph for resisting her attempts to seduce him into sleeping with her, accuses him falsely of attempting to rape her. Potiphar casts Joseph into prison, where he comes to the notice of Pharaoh through his ability to interpret the dreams of other prisoners.

  • Burning bush

    The burning bush is an event described by the Book of Exodus (3:1-21) as being located on Mount Horeb; according to the narrative, the bush was on fire, but was not consumed by the flames, hence the name. In the narrative, the burning bush is the location at which Moses was appointed by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into Canaan.

  • The_capture_of_Jerusalem_and_recovery_of_the_Ark_by_David

    In 1 Samuel chapter 4, the Ark of the Covenant was captured by the Philistines, who killed the two sons of Eli, the priest. In verse 4:4, this was clearly identified as the ark of the Exodus legend, with the mercy seat on which the Lord of hosts sat between the two cherubim. Although the Ark of the Covenant was said to have been built at enormous expense, to support the mercy seat on which God sat while he travelled with the Israelites and to keep the sacred tablets of the ten commandments, Psalm 132 says this most sacred artefact of the Hebrews was found abandoned in a field. Second Samuel chapter 6 describes how David recovered the Ark and moved it to its place in the tabernacle. The author had no doubt that God was still seated 'between the cherubim', with frequent references such as David dancing 'before the Lord', and God blessing a household for hosting the ark. After allowing this treasure to be captured and later allowing it to be lost, God must have had a renewed interest in it: for example he killed Uzzah just for touching the ark in order to steady it while it was being transported on a cart. So, the Ark had been captured and returned, then abandoned, but found and recovered. If it really did exist, it must have been lost yet again, but there is no record of such an event.

  • God answers Job out of the whirlwind

    God IS revealed in Nature and Scripture BOTH!!! Modern religious teachers often forget this. The last five chapters of the Old Testament book of Job provide an excellent illustration. God's answer to Job's question of why he was going through all that hardship, is God's four chapter lecture on the wonders of nature, with a few comments. God does not employ some kind of theological lecture, or scripture! Nature gives sufficient answer.

  • 마태복음
  • 요한복음
  • Book of Lamentations

    Lamentations was written by the Prophet Jeremiah, according to some opinions before the events occurred. The verses follow the Aleph-Beit in three chapters, a hint to the three cardinal sins that caused the First Temple to be destroyed. The third chapter (some say added later) alludes to the destruction of the Second Temple, caused by unjustifiable hatred. It contains three sets of Aleph-Beit, as that sin is as destructive as the three cardinal sins put together.

  • Book of Isaiah

    The Book of Isaiah is a book of the Bible traditionally attributed to the Prophet Isaiah, who lived in the second half of the 8th century BC. In the first 39 chapters, Isaiah prophesies doom for a sinful Judah and for all the nations of the world that oppose God. The last 27 chapters prophesy the restoration of the nation of Israel.

  • Book of Judges

    The Book of Judges (Hebrew: Sefer Shoftim ספר שופטים) is a book of the Bible originally written in Hebrew. It appears in the Tanakh and in the Christian Old Testament. Its title refers to its contents; it contains the history of Biblical judges (not to be confused with modern judges), who helped rule and guide the ancient Israelites, and of their times. As Judges stands today, the last judge it mentions is Samson, and although there are two further stories, the traditional view is that Samson's exploits probably synchronise with the period immediately preceding Eli, who was both high priest and judge. Both academic views and traditional thought hence view the narrative of the judges as ending at Samson, picking up again at 1 Samuel 1:1 to consider Eli, and continuing through to 1 Samuel 7:2. As for the stories at the end of the Book, which are set in the same time period as the judges but discuss people other than the judges, there is much affinity between these and the Book of Ruth, and some even believe Ruth originally belonged amongst them. There were thirteen Biblical Judges.

  • Book_of_Numbers

    The Book of Numbers or Bəmidbar is the fourth book of the Hebrew Bible, and the fourth of five books of the Jewish Torah/Pentateuch. This book may be divided into three parts: The numbering of the people at Sinai, and preparations for resuming their march . An account of the journey from Sinai to Moab, the sending out of the spies and the report they brought back, the murmurings (eight times) of the people at the hardships by the way, and the subsequent exile into the wilderness for 40 years .

  • Book of Micah

    The Book of Micah is more complex than can be accounted for by suggesting that the prophet of Moresheth is responsible for the entire book. It is more likely that the book of Micah reflects the ongoing tradition of Micah within the community, as they reflected upon and digested Micah’s words in light of changing history, and then reapplied that message in new ways within the community in later times. This dynamic can be seen graphically in one passage in Micah (4:1-3) that is almost exactly duplicated in Isaiah (2:2-4). Since Isaiah of Jerusalem and Micah were contemporaries and shared many of the same perspectives, we simply do not know the origin of these verses, whether Isaiah or Micah. While we might want to know, it was simply not an issue in ancient Israel, because it was the word from and about God that was being preserved, not just the writings of individual people. This means that the best avenue for interpretation of the book is not from the perspective of the man Micah but from the Book of Micah

  • First_Book_of_King

  • Book_of_Zephaniah

    The superscription of the Book of Zephaniah attributes its authorship to “Zephaniah son of Cushi son of Gedaliah son of Amariah son of Hezekiah, in the days of King Josiah son of Atom of Judah”. All that is known of Zephaniah comes from the text. The superscription of the book is lengthier than most and contains two features. The name Cushi, Zephaniah’s father, means ‘Ethiopian’.

  • Second_Book_of_Samuel

    Upon learning of Saul’s defeat by the Philistines, David sings a song lamenting the deaths of Saul and his friend, Jonathan. David goes to Hebron, where his followers and the southern tribe of Judah anoint him as king. Meanwhile, Saul’s chief commander, Abner, garners the support of the northern tribes and instates Saul’s son, Ish-Bosheth, as king of Israel.

  • Book_of_Nehemiah

    The Book of Nehemiah, sometimes called the Second Book of Ezra, is a book of the Hebrew Bible. It is historically regarded as a continuation of the Book of Ezra, and the two are frequently taken together as Ezra-Nehemiah. Traditionally, the author of this book is believed to be Nehemiah himself. The date at which the book was written was probably about 431 - 430 BC, when Nehemiah had returned the second time to Jerusalem after his visit to Persia.

  • Book of Malachi

    Malachi (or Malachias, מַלְאָכִי, Malʾaḫi, Mál'akhî) is a book of the Hebrew Bible, written by the prophet Malachi. Possibly this is not the name of the author, since Malachi means 'my messenger' or 'my angel' in Hebrew. The last of the twelve minor prophets (canonically), the final book of the Hebrew Bible in Christian, but not Jewish tradition is commonly attributed to a prophet by the name of Malachi.

  • Second_Book_of_King

  • Book of Amos

    The Book of Amos is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible. Amos was the first biblical prophet whose words were recorded in a book, an older contemporary of Hosea and Isaiah. He was active c. 750 BC during the reign of Jeroboam II. He lived in the kingdom of Judah but preached in the northern kingdom of Israel. His major themes of social justice, God's omnipotence, and divine judgment became staples of prophecy.

  • Song_of_Songs

    The Hebrew Bible contains a particularly puzzling little book known as the Song of Songs. It is also known as the Song of Solomon or as Canticles. The book appears to be a collection of poetry on the theme of human love. It is often frankly erotic. The poems typically presuppose two primary figures: a male lover and a female lover. Like much poetry, its polysemy makes it both evocative and enigmatic. At some early point before our first explicit citation of it, it was seen as an allegory for God's love. It was "the most frequently interpreted book of medieval Christianity" (Ann Matter) and it inspired a great many medieval Jewish commentaries as well. The Song of Songs has played a fascinating role in Western culture. It has been a test case and a workshop for allegorical method. It has been a mainstay of asceticism and an impetus for mysticism.

  • Book of Deuteronomy

    Deuteronomy or Devarim is the fifth book of the Hebrew Bible, and the fifth of five books of the Jewish Torah/Pentateuch. A large part of the book consists of three sermons delivered by Moses reviewing the previous forty years of wandering in the wilderness, and the future entering into the Promised Land. Its central element is a detailed law-code by which the Israelites are to live within the Promised Land.

  • First_Book_of_Samuel

    The first book of Samuel tells the story of Israel’s transition from a theocracy, or state ruled by a religious leader, to a monarchy, or state ruled by a political leader. Israel starts out as a nation of loosely affiliated tribes led by priests and religious heroes, but it becomes a nation-state led by a centralized king. Each stage of this transition is depicted through the narrative’s three main figures: Samuel represents the old rule of the judges, Saul represents Israel’s failed attempt at monarchy, and David represents God’s ideal king. Although it seems logical that the rule of a single king would bring a sense of unity and cohesiveness to Israel, the opposite is the case. The move away from religious leaders divides religious and political life in Israel. Confusion about how religion and politics ought to relate to one another is the chief source of conflict in Samuel. Indeed, Saul’s gravest mistake as king is his attempt to carry out the sacrificial duties of the priesthood—a role that Samuel explicitly denies the political ruler.

  • Book of Ezra

    The Book of Ezra is a book of the Hebrew Bible. It is the record of events occurring at the close of the Babylonian captivity, especially The Return to Zion. At one time, it included the Book of Nehemiah, and the Jews regarded them as one volume. The two are still distinguished in the Vulgate version as I and II Esdras.

  • Book of Jonah

    The Book of Jonah is a book in the Hebrew Bible. It tells the story of a Hebrew prophet named Jonah ben Amittai who is sent by God to prophesy the destruction of Nineveh but tries to escape the divine mission. Set in the reign of Jeroboam II (786-746 BCE), it was probably written in the post-exilic period, sometime between the late fifth to early fourth century BC. The story has an interesting interpretive history (see below) and has become well-known through popular children’s stories.

  • Ecclesiastes

    Ecclesiastes (often abbreviated Ecc) is a book of the Hebrew Bible. The English name derives from the Greek translation of the Hebrew title. The main speaker in the book, identified by the name or title Qohelet, introduces himself as "son of David, and king in Jerusalem. " The work consists of personal or autobiographic matter, at times expressed in aphorisms and maxims illuminated in terse paragraphs with reflections on the meaning of life and the best way of life.

  • Book of Ezekiel

    The Book of Ezekiel is a book of the Hebrew Bible named after the prophet Ezekiel. The book records a number of visions and prophecies, purportedly proclaimed by Ezekiel during the first stages of the Babylonian exile in the early sixth century B.C.E. Ezekiel taught that people of Judah must not resist the Babylonian power, but should submit to captivity in obedience to God. He also encouraged his people with the hope that God had not abandoned them, and that they would ultimately be redeemed from captivity by God and ruled again by a king of the Davidic line, the Messiah. He engaged in a number of symbolic acts, often involving severe personal suffering, as a sign concerning God's attitude toward his people and what their response should be. The book also contains several dramatic visions, which have been influential in the development of both Jewish and Christian apocalyptic literature, as well as in the Jewish mystical tradition. Various theories have been set forth regarding the authorship and transmission of Ezekiel, although it is generally agreed that many of the prophecies, visions, and other writings contained in the book originate from the prophet himself.

  • Book_of_Zechariah

    The Book of Zechariah is a book of the Hebrew Bible attributed to the prophet Zechariah.

  • Book of Daniel

    The Book of Daniel (דניאל) is a book in the Hebrew Bible. Originally written in Hebrew and Aramaic, it is set during the Babylonian Captivity, a period when Jews were deported and exiled to Babylon following the Siege of Jerusalem of 597 BC. The book revolves around the figure of Daniel, a Judean who becomes Chief Magician in the court of Nebuchadnezzar, the ruler of Babylon from 605 to 562 BC.

  • Book of Leviticus

    Leviticus contains laws and priestly rituals, but in a wider sense is about the working out of God's covenant with Israel set out in Genesis and Exodus—what is seen in the Torah as the consequences of entering into a special relationship with God (specifically, Yahweh). These consequences are set out in terms of community relationships and behaviour. The first 16 chapters and the last chapter make up the Priestly Code, with rules for ritual cleanliness, sin-offerings, and the Day of Atonement, including Chapter 12, which mandates male circumcision. Chapters 17–26 contain the Holiness Code, including the injunction in chapter 19 to "love one's neighbor as oneself" (the Great Commandment). The book is largely concerned with "abominations", largely dietary and sexual restrictions. The rules are generally addressed to the Israelites, except for several prohibitions applied equally to "the strangers that sojourn in Israel." According to Jewish and Christian tradition, God dictated the Book of Leviticus to Moses as He did the other books of the Bible.[1] However, modern biblical scholars believe Leviticus to be almost entirely from the priestly source (P), marked by emphasis on priestly concerns, composed c 550–400 BCE, and incorporated into the Torah c 400 BCE.[2]

  • Book of Haggai

    The Book of Haggai is a book of the Hebrew Bible, written by the prophet Haggai. It was written in 520 BCE some 18 years after Cyrus had conquered Babylon and issued a decree in 538 BCE allowing the captive Jews to return to Judea. He saw the restoration of the temple as necessary for the restoration of the religious practices and a sense of peoplehood after a long exile. It consists of two simple, comprehensive chapters.

  • Book of Exodus

    Exodus (Greek: ἔξοδος, exodos, meaning "departure") or Sh'moth (Hebrew: שמות‎, literally "names", Modern Hebrew: Shmot) is the second book of the Hebrew Bible, and the second of five books of the Torah/Pentateuch. Moses leads the Hebrews out of Egypt and through the wilderness to the Mountain of God: Mount Sinai. There Yahweh, through Moses, gives the Hebrews their laws and enters into a covenant with them, by which he will give them the land of Canaan in return for their faithfulness. The book ends with the construction of the Tabernacle. According to tradition, Exodus and the other four books of the Torah were written by Moses. Modern biblical scholarship believes that the book had many authors and was a product of the Exilic and Persian periods (6th and 5th centuries BC).

  • Book_of_Ruth

    The Book of Ruth is the eighth book of the Old Testament of the Bible. A short story, it tells how Ruth, the Moabite widow of a Bethlehemite, with her mother - in - law Naomi's assistance, married an older kinsman Boaz, thereby preserving her deceased husband's posterity and becoming an ancestor of King David. The plot is artfully constructed and exhibits a pronounced belief in the comprehensive but hidden providence of God that works quietly in ordinary events. The legal customs concerning levirate marriage, redemption of property, and gleaning in the fields are relatively ancient, and the vocabulary and style are consistent with a date between 950 and 750 BC. The Davidic genealogy is a secondary appendix, written between 500 and 350 BC, which served to increase the importance of the book for postexilic Jews.

  • Book_of_Nahum

    The Book of Nahum, seventh of the 12 minor prophetic books in the Old Testament of the Bible, probably dates from shortly after the destruction of Assyria in 612 BC, although the book is cast in the form of a prophecy of events yet to unfold. The prophet Nahum described the conquest of the oppressive Assyrians by the Medes and Babylonians, presenting their fall as the righteous judgment of Yahweh. Unlike other prophets, Nahum did not apply his condemnation of wickedness to Israel itself.

  • Book of Hosea

  • Book of Job

    The Book of Job is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible. It relates the story of Job, his trials at the hands of the Satan, his theological discussions with friends on the origins and nature of his suffering, his challenge to God, and finally a response from God. The Book itself comprises a didactic poem set in a prose framing device and has been called "the most profound and literary work of the entire Old Testament".

  • Book of Habakkuk

    The Book of Habakkuk is the eighth book of the 12 minor prophets of the Hebrew Bible. It is attributed to the prophet Habakkuk, and was probably composed in the late 7th century BCE. A copy of chapters 1 and 2 (of 3) is included in the Habakkuk Commentary, found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Chapters 1-2 are a dialog between Yahweh and the prophet. The central message, that "the just shall live by his faith", plays an important rule in Christian thought.

  • Book_of_Obadiah

    The Book of Obadiah is found in the Hebrew Bible, where it is the shortest book, only one chapter long. Its authorship is generally attributed to a person named Obadiah, which means “servant (or worshipper) of the Lord”. Obadiah is classified as a "minor prophet" in the Christian Bible due to the brevity of the writing (only 21 verses) and the content (prophetic material).

  • 창세기

  • Book_of_Psalms

    The Book of Psalms consists of 150 psalms, each of which constitutes a religious song, though one or two are atypically long and may constitute a set of related chants. When the Bible was divided into chapters, each Psalm was assigned its own chapter. Psalms are sometimes referenced as chapters, despite chapter assignments postdating the initial composition of the "canonical" Psalms by at least 1,500 years. Though most of the psalms are believed to have been intended for singing (some even include instrumentation and the names of tunes to sing to), the meaning of the cantillation marks which indicate the tune has been lost.

  • :two goats sin offering and alive

    Certain ceremonial actions of the Old Testament system typified the atoning work of the Messiah. For instance, on the annual Jewish day of atonement, amidst numerous other rituals, the high priest presented two goats before the door of the tabernacle. After the casting of lots upon these animals, one was sacrificed as a “sin-offering” and the other was “set alive before Jehovah” (Leviticus 16:9, 10). The blood of the slain goat was taken into the most holy place where it was sprinkled upon the mercy seat. This, of course, was typical of the sacrificial death of Christ (Hebrews 9:11, 12). The high priest then took the living goat, laid hands upon him and confessed over him all the iniquities of the people. Subsequently, by an appointed servant, the animal was led away into the wilderness (Leviticus 16:21, 22).The two goats were, so to speak, two sides of the same coin; both constituted the solitary offering of Christ. The one signified his death and the atoning effect of his blood, the other his resurrection (cf. Romans 4:25) and the complete removal of our sins (cf. Isaiah 53:4, 6; John 1:29).

  • 구원

    79. 소테리아(σωτηρία) : 구원 ‘다른 이로써는 구원을 받을 수 없나니 천하 사람 중에 구원을 받을 만한 다른 이름을 우리에게 주신 일이 없음이라 하였더라’(행4:11) ‘구원’으로 번역된 헬라어 ‘소테리아’(σωτηρία)는 ‘구원, 안전, 건강, 보호, 메시야적 구원, 모든 진실된 그리스도인들이 현재 소유한 구원, 미래의 구원’이라는 의미를 가진 단어이다. 이 단어의 동사형은 ‘소조’(σῴζω)로써 ‘구조하다, 구원하다, 안전하고 튼튼하게 지키다, 위험과 파괴로부터 구출하다, 완전하게 만들다, 보존하다’라는 의미를 가지고 있으며, 여기서 파생된 남성명사가 ‘구주, 구속자, 구원자, 해방자, 보호자’의 뜻을 가진 ‘소텔’(σωτῆρ)이라는 단어이다. ‘소테리아’(σωτηρία)로 번역된 히브리어는 ‘구원, 번영, 승리’의 뜻을 가진 ‘예슈아’ (ישועה)인데 이를 파자하면 ‘손에 못이 박혀 나타난 존재’라는 의미이다. 여기서 ‘헤’(ה)를 빼면 ‘예슈아’(ישוע)가 되는데 이것이 예수님의 히브리어 이름이며 ‘그가 자기 백성을 그들의 죄에서 구원할 자’(마1:21)라는 뜻을 가지고 있다. ‘예슈아’ (ישועה)라는 단어는 구약에서 야곱이 자신의 열두 아들을 불러 예언하며 축복하는 말씀 중에 ‘여호와여 나는 주의 구원(예슈아 : ישועה)을 기다리나이다’(창49:18)에서 처음 나오며 구약성경에서 77회 사용되고 있다. ‘여호와’로 쓰인 히브리어 ‘예호바’(יהוה)를 파자하면 ‘손을 보라 못을 보라’는 의미로 결국 여호와가 바로 구원자 예수라는 사실을 알 수 있다. 하나님의 기쁘신 뜻대로 우리를 예정하사 예수 그리스도로 말미암아 자기의 아들들이 되게하신 하나님의 창세전 언약에 따라 하나님의 열심으로 이루어지는것이 구원(σωτηρία)이다. 그래서 히브리서 기자는 ‘만물을 창조하시고 보존하시는 하나님이 많은 사람을 영광으로 인도하시려고 구원(σωτηρία)의 창시자이신 예수님을 고난을 통해 완전하게 하신 것은 너무나 당연한 일이었습니다’(히2:10, 현대인의 성경)라고 기록하고 있는 것이다. 그러면서 예수님이 하나님의 아들이면서도 받으신 고난으로 순종함을 배워서 온전하게 되셨기에 마찬가지로 자기에게 순종하는 모든 자에게 영원한 구원(σωτηρία)의 근원이 되셨다고 말하고 있다. 하나님께서 말씀 육신이 되어 이 땅에 오신 그리스도이신 예수(요1:14), 그 이름 만이 우리를 구원하시는 것이다(행4:11) 이와 같이 성도는 믿음으로 말미암아 구원(σωτηρία)을 받은 자이다. 그러나 이 믿음도 우리에게서 난 것이 아니라 하나님의 열심에 의한 하나님의 선물이다(엡2:8). 그래서 구원(σωτηρία)은 오직 하나님의 은혜(only by grace)라고 말하는 것이다.
