Shabbat is a time to put down the baggage; the issues and tensions of the week. Many people say: “I don’t want to talk about business or money on Shabbat.”
III. In Yoma, 85 b , it is written: “R. Jonathan b. Joseph said, ‘The Sabbath is holy unto you,’” implying that the Sabbath is handed over to you and not you to the Sabbath. 1
Note: It is forbidden to “carry” anyone’s burden on the Shabbat
256:1 Rashi justifies Psalms xc. 12, which he interprets: “A prophet has a heart endowed with wisdom”; although Isaac Leeser translates the verse, “That we may obtain a heart endowed with wisdom,” the Hebrew word Navi meaning both “prophet” and also “we may obtain.”
Meaning: We all have the capcity (with wisdom guiding us) to raise to a new level in our faith.
My understanding from joining other Jewish forums is that many study the New Testament- at least, the beginnings of scripture (not the latter part) they considered to be authentic. Most consider the book of John and Mark so when quoting scripture we refer to either. I was amazed! Again, it all depends on the group that your discussing scripture with. The discussions are mostly about who the last prophet was.
That’s why I mention the prophecy of the deliver who was to be sent to Israelites - during the Exodus. In Exodus,as with the New Testament, Pharaoh degreed to have all the first born males killed. If we were to compare the passages with the New Testament with the announcement of Christ’s birth, it isn’t different. If the Magi could figure the date of the savior then surely Pharoah’s court also did…however, according to the covenant of pieces or parts no savior is mentioned, either.
Kabbalah is 2nd nature to this group. However, in their education, it is not emphasized as much.The center of learning (schools) were located in Poland, Germany and Israel.
Out of these schools - it was Germany ( or the German Jews) that had the higher learning in Jewish mysticism and then Poland.
But after WWII, the only school that was left was in Israel and from what I know they had closed the door. Mysticism should be taught within the confides of their own group.
WOW! That was a terrible book. I just googled it. That’s why I heard, from a Protestant acquaintance, that every time there is a convent, there is a rectory & an orphanage. Sigh!
God forgive our sins. Send grace to open our eyes to truth. In Jesus name.
One would think, the year of fallow was to let nitrogen return to the fields. Now, w fertilizer and rotation of crops, a fallow year is not nesessary. In OT, where it states to discard things w mildew, it could make ppl sick and rot the item mildewed. Now, we have Clorox!!! Do not eat animals w cloven feet b/c we could get sick w trichamonus. Pigs were fed raw garbage. Now, they are fed cooked garbage. No more trichomonas. But, pork is still a NONO?!
‘Tis all good.
Today, vegans explain how we were meant to eat plant generated food & nuts. That primitive man couldn’t catch animals that well and did not eat meat. But, God gave us everything to enjoy.
OH WELL… I am fond of a good steak!
Seventh Day adventists are Biblically fed ppl.
I’m on a sea food diet. I eat all the food, I see.
I would recommend that you check more information on these institutions ( Yeshiva) during WWII.
They were the largest in Europe and highly rated across the board but again, in Germany, came the best educators.
Also, on word terminology and becoming familar, see this Catholic article:
I’ve actually read it some years ago. I have a weakness for reading this sort of historical propaganda. It’s amazing how many places quotes from it still pop up or bits of text rearranged are ‘borrowed’ from it by individuals looking to show just how awful Catholics are.
I’m actually amazed such blood libel could ever have started among Christians, considering how Christians were once the victims of blood libel at the hands of the Romans, who accused our ancestors of slaughtering babies and devouring them.
