The Forgotten Jews

I’ve decided that once a month, I will reblog one of my older posts for your perusal. This was my very first post.

J-M's History Corner

At first, this title may seem very confusing. I mean, we know who the Jews are, right? And you’d be partly right; the Jews – who they are, where they live (e.g. State of Israel, America, etc) are widely known. But they are only some of the Jews (and yes, they ARE Jews; in a later post I will refute the myth that they are not). They represent the descendants of Judah’s sons Shelah and Perez (albeit not all of Perez’s descendants, as I will cover in this article). Judah had other sons, and other descendants.

Okay, I’d better back up and provide a bit of background. Judah, son of Jacob (Israel) and Leah, married a Canaanite woman. They had three sons: Er, Onan and Shelah. Er and Onan died childless, and their widow Tamar (who married Onan after Er’s death) was promised to Shelah – when he grew up…

Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 14

Here is my Restored English Translation (RET) of Beresheet (Genesis) chapter 14.  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names and a glossary for them.  After that, at the very end, is a list of occurrences of the Aleph/Tavs. Verse 5 is particularly interesting; it mentions that the confederacy that attacked Sodom and Gomorrah had previously … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 14

Depression-Is There No Hope?

Very important and relevant.

David Fischer

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all had a great week and are ready for a relaxing weekend. So, I know I promised that my messages would be filled with hope from now on and this post will be no different, but first I must present some sobering facts about the world we live in….

1. Suicide rates are at an all time high (including children that more recently are as young as 5 years old.)

2. Depression is also at an all time high with thousands of new cases diagnosed every day.

I could list a ton more but you get the point. We live in a world without hope; or at least that is the way it is presented. For those that watch the news, have you ever noticed how the lead story is always one of despair? Murder, suicide, storms, political nonsense, etc. Never once does the media…

Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 13

Here is the Restored English Translation (RET) of the 13th chapter of Beresheet (Genesis).  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names, with a glossary of them at the end.  At the very end is a list of the places where the Aleph/Tavs occur, as I no longer include them in the main text. CHAPTER 13 … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 13

Does the Torah Still Apply?

The Torah, commonly called the Law or Pentateuch, consists of the first five books of the Bible, the books written by Moses.  They provide detailed instructions from Yehovah (God) on how to live.  (Actually, the Torah is 6 books, with Jubilees originally being between Exodus and Leviticus.)  Many Christians, however, believe that the instructions in … Continue reading Does the Torah Still Apply?
