2020 the year when an invisible enemy managed to isolate so many people and got so many believers of God not being able to meet with each other for the mitzvah of the memorial meal on 14 Nisan.
Continuing in the book of Adam’s generations we saw that Enoch walked with God after he had begotten Methushelah and find Methushelah bringing Lemech (Lámek/Lamech) the father of Noah on this world. The account ends with Noah having Shem, Ham, and Yefet/Japeth.
Going from Enosh, the son of Seth and grandson of Adam, we go up to another Enoch in the family tree, namely the son of Jared and grandson of Mahalalel. We know those descendants of Adam had come to recognise the Divine Creator as their God to call upon His Name.
Elohim had blessed the human beings He had created and allowed them to have children. That way A'dham became the father "of a son" in his own likeness, "after" his own image. We were not told this about Cain and Abel simply because the text did not wish to discuss them at length. In this chapter 5 Moses goes straight to the third son of Adam, Enosh. It is noted that from that time the people started to call upon the Name of Jehovah God.
The genealogy of Adam gives us a picture how from those being created in the image of God, were born new creatures. Male and female were created by the Only One God, Who blessed them and gave them the possibility to bring forth new blood, so that the purpose of God, to fill the world could be fulfilled.
The fifth chapter of the first book of the Pentateuch brings us the accounting of mankind. Moses gives an idea how the Children of God came one after the other on earth to play their role in history.
An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz, and 1.1 million died there including 960,000 Jews. When 75 years ago, the 100th and 322nd divisions of the Soviet Army’s “1st Ukrainian Front” reached the Nazi concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau they could not believe their eyes. Lots more soldiers came to see similar horror places and being disgusted by that what seemed inhuman many became convinced the whole world should know about this and should make sure this could never happen again.
The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing. In these darker days many may feel depressed or become confronted with the passing away of people or beloved animals. Though we do have 8 days to remember how light is given by God and how the temple, His House, was restored.
When positively reacting to the wedding invitation, we should be willing to step in the sent one from God his footsteps and should help to spread the Good News
Even though we have a standing invitation to eat at “the table of Jehovah,” we must never take that invitation for granted. (1 Cor. 10:21)
We should look at the Most High Elohim, how He had chosen Himself a set-apart (or holy) people. Also in the parable of the Wedding banquet, mentioned in Matthew 22, we hear how He as the king invited His people. Because many did no go into His invitation He sent out His servants to invite… Lees verder Husband to an ancient nation
From the Hebrew Scriptures, including the Talmud we can learn that the Chosen People or Israel is eternal, so the bond with them is irreversible, unbreakable and eternal, once a Jew always a Jew. As a Jew following the Jewish rebbe Jeshua should not mean that one has to give up the Jewishness, even better being a follower of the sent one of God one can become even closer to God.
God has given the world His Word and Guidance for life, but everyone is free to follow it or not. It is not by doing good or doing bad that everything in life shall run like we would like it, or would go good or bad. We all know that “bad” things happen to “good” people, and no spiritual building can hold by pretending otherwise. It’s simply untrue that every well-lived life leads only to outwardly positive outcomes. It’s equally untrue that difficult circumstances prove that someone strayed from the path.
The first observant Jew settled in Iceland in 1906, according to records. Fritz Heymann Nathan started one of Iceland’s most successful businesses at the time, Nathan & Olsen, a food distributor, after arriving from Denmark. He stayed for 11 years before returning there.
