Abram Guarding His Sacrifice

Shabbat Shalom, y’all!

We’re in the book of Genesis (Bereshit) reading Lech Lecha.

+++++There was  ++++ evening and morning

test everything, hold tight to what is good – 1 Thessalonians 5:21

֍ ֍ ֍  What is this Portion About?

The parashah, Lech Lecha, tells the stories of Yehovah’s calling of Abram (who would become Abraham), Abram’s passing off his wife Sarai as his sister, Abram’s dividing the land with his nephew Lot, the war between the four kings and the five [cities of the plains*], the covenant between the pieces, Sarai’s tensions with her maid Hagar and her son Ishmael, and the covenant of circumcision (בְּרִית מִילָה‎, brit milah). (<<— from wikipedia)

*The Battle of the Vale of Siddim, also often called the War of Nine Kings or the Slaughter of Chedorlaomer, is an event in the Hebrew Bible book of Genesis 14:1–17 that occurs in the days of Abram and Lot. The Vale of Siddim was the battleground for the cities of the Jordan River plain revolting against Mesopotamian rule.

֍ ֍ ֍  Where Are We in Our Studies?

We are in the Book of Genesis (from Greek Γένεσις, Génesis; Biblical Hebrew: בְּרֵאשִׁית, romanized: Bərēʾšīṯ, “In [the] beginning”) NOTE: Yahweh is NOT Yah’s name. At best it is a scholar’s guess and a bad one at that. His real name is pronounced Yehovah.

 If Just One

by Manny Ortuno

Public

1 person can make a difference, be that person.
“Reflecting on a touching story where they recounted a moment where a person expressed that if just one individual had reached out on their way to the bridge, they would have turned back.
A poignant reminder of the impact one person can have in the world. 💔 #MakeADifference #LifeMatters

NOTE: For Older Testament passages I’ve become rather interested in reading them in the Septuagint. I know some passages are different there comparably, but the Septuagint seems to have more depth in understanding than the Bibles translated using the Masoretic text created in about 600-1000 A.D.

This is compared to the origins of the Septuagint.

The Septuagint is the very first translation of the Hebrew Bible from Hebrew to another language, Greek. It’s believed that it was probably translated as early as the third century BC. The Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek is traditionally dated to the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt (285-246 BC).
