The story of a Gentile women, Ruth

Jewish lawJudaismAs far as the land of Israel is concerned, the first sentence of Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak HaCohen’s quintessential work “Orot” says it all: the land of Israel is not an intermediary, a superficial land entity where Jews can take refuge. Rather, it is an indispensable element of the existence of Judaism, together with Torah and Am Yisrael, the Jewish people. Without Eretz Yisrael, there is no Judaism. Hallel by David Wilder, The Jewish Community of Hebron. May 3, 2004

Psalms 78:5 For he issued his decree to Jacob; he gave his law to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, 6 so the next generation might know them
"More than Jews have kept the Sabbath," wrote Ahad Ha'am in a remark that has become proverbial, "the Sabbath has kept the Jews."
Cannot obey the Jewish laws to be saved Gal 4:21 Listen to me, you friends who think you have to obey the Jewish laws to be saved: Why don't you find out what those laws really mean? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one from his slave-wife and one from his freeborn wife. 23 There was nothing unusual about the birth of the slave-wife's baby. But the baby of the freeborn wife was born only after God had especially promised he would come.
24 Now this true story is an illustration of God's two ways of helping people. One way was by giving them his laws to obey. He did this on Mount Sinai, when he gave the Ten Commandments to Moses.
Mount Sinai, by the way, is called "Mount Hagar" by the Arabs-and in my illustration, Abraham's slave-wife Hagar represents Jerusalem, the mother-city of the Jews, the center of that system of trying to please God by trying to obey the Commandments; and the Jews, who try to follow that system, are her Hagar slave children. 26 But our mother-city is the heavenly Jerusalem, and she is not a slave to Jewish laws.
27 That is what Isaiah meant when he prophesied, "Now you can rejoice, O childless woman; you can shout with joy though you never before had a child. For I am going to give you many children-more children than the
Hagarslave-wife has."
28 You and I, dear brothers, are the children that God promised, just as Isaac was. 29 And so we who are born of the Holy Spirit are persecuted now by those who want us to keep the Jewish laws, just as Isaac, the child of promise, was persecuted by
Ishmael, the slave-wife's son.
30 But the Scriptures say that God told Abraham to send away the slave-wife and her son, for the slave-wife's son could not inherit Abraham's home and lands along with the free woman's son.

31 Dear brothers, we are not slave children, obligated to the Jewish laws, but children of the free woman, acceptable to God because of our faith.
Gal 5:1 So Christ has made us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get all tied up again in the chains of slavery to Jewish laws and ceremonies. 2 Listen to me, for this is serious: if you are counting on circumcision and keeping the Jewish laws to make you right with God, then Christ cannot save you. 3 I'll say it again. Anyone trying to find favor with God by being circumcised must always obey every other Jewish law or perish. 4 Christ is useless to you if you are counting on clearing your debt to God by keeping those laws; you are lost from God's grace.
5 But we by the help of the
Holy Spirit are counting on Christ's death to clear away our sins and make us right with God. 6 And we to whom Christ has given eternal life don't need to worry about whether we have been circumcised or not, or whether we are obeying the Jewish ceremonies or not; for all we need is faith working through love.

Tradition of Redemption of CaptivesSharon Government offered Pollard $2 million [IMRA: reverse pidyon shvuyim?] By Etgar Lefkovits The Jeruslaem Post 27 November 2001
[IMRA: In the Jewish tradition, "pidyon shvuyim", the redemption of prisoners, is one of the most important commandments. In this case the Sharon administration appears to have turned this concept upside down. Instead of offering to ransom the prisoner, they offer money to the prisoner to remain in prison.]
1 Sam 14:45 But the troops retorted, "Jonathan, who saved Israel today, shall die? Far from it! We vow by the life of God that not one hair on his head will be touched, for he has been used of God to do a mighty miracle today." So the people rescued Jonathan. TLB
Jer 15:2 And if they say to you, 'But where can we go?' tell them the Lord says: 'Those who are destined for death, to death; those who must die by the sword, to the sword; those doomed to starvation, to famine; and those for captivity, to captivity.' TLB

Rabbi Yochanan comments on this verse (Bava Batra 8b) explaining that each punishment mentioned above is considered worse than the punishment which is mentioned previously. According to Rabbi Yochanan, the sword is a worse punishment than death; famine is a worse punishment than the sword; and captivity is worst punishment of all. Why? Because captivity contains within it all of the other punishments combined.

Homosexuality Rabbi Joel Beasley of Alon Shvut has written, "As far as the Jewish religion goes, there are no homosexuals in the world, nor have there ever been. There are no heterosexuals either. Both terms are pejorative. They imply that the essence of existence lies somehow within the crass and the carnal... According to sexual behaviorists like Masters and Johnson, babies are born neither heterosexual nor homosexual in any categorical sense (Human Sexuality, 1995, fifth edition). They are sexually malleable, and can remain in flux throughout their lifetimes... People are inclined naturally towards aesthetic variation. That does not mean they should be free to act on their impulses. The Torah understands that unrestrained pursuit of personal pleasure takes a terrible toll on society, and creates havoc for the stability of the family." (Jewish Spectator, Winter 1998).

Holy Placesthreshing floorsTempleMount2 Sam 24:18 On that day Gad went to David and said to him, "Go up and build an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite." **19 So David went up, as the LORD had commanded through Gad. ..." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen and paid fifty shekels of silver for them. 25 David built an altar to the LORD there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the LORD answered prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped. NIV
** OT:728 'Aravnah (ar-av-naw'); or (by transposition) 'Owrnah (ore-naw'); or 'Arniyah (ar-nee-yaw'); all by orthographical variation for OT:771; Aravnah (or Arnijah or Ornah), a Jebusite: KJV - Araunah. (Biblesoft's Strong's Numbers)
1 Chron 21:18 Then the angel of the LORD ordered Gad to tell David to go up and build an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite..*** NIV

...25 So David paid Ornan $4,300 in gold 26 and built an altar to the Lord there, and sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings upon it; and he called out to the Lord, who answered by sending down fire from heaven to burn up the offering on the altar. TLB

*** OT:771 'Ornan (or-nawn'); probably from OT:766; strong; Ornan, a Jebusite: KJV - Ornan. See OT:728. (Biblesoft's Strong's Numbers)
[The assertion that David bought two threshing floors, one on MT Motiah and the other on Mt. Olives:
Similarities: 1. It followed the same incident, Divid's sin. 2. It's bought from the same person:
Araunah or Ornan
have the same Strong's #s 728 & 771. 3. It doesn't say it's in different places. In both David is just told to "go up..."
Difference: 1. different amounts were paid,
fifty shekels of silver and $4,300 in gold.]

Isa 42:2 He will be gentle-he will not shout nor quarrel in the streets. 3 He will not break the bruised reed, nor quench the dimly burning flame. He will encourage the fainthearted, those tempted to despair. He will see full justice given to all who have been wronged. TLB
James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. TLB

Rebuilt 3rd TempleJoel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes waiting in the valley for the verdict of their doom! For the Day of the Lord is near, in the Valley of Judgment. 15 The sun and moon will be darkened and the stars withdraw their light. 16 The Lord shouts from his Temple in Jerusalem, and the earth and sky begin to shake. But to his people Israel, the Lord will be very gentle. He is their Refuge and Strength. TLB
Isa 2:2 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. 3 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. NIV (Isa 2:3 For in those days the world will be ruled from Jerusalem. TLB)

Zech 6:14 "Then put the crown in the Temple of the Lord, to honor those who gave it-Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and also Josiah. 15 These three who have come from so far away represent many others who will some day come from distant lands to rebuild the Temple of the Lord. And when this happens, you will know my messages have been from God, the Lord Almighty. But none of this will happen unless you carefully obey the commandments of the Lord your God." TLB
Zech 8:9 The Lord Almighty says, "Get on with the job and finish it! You have been listening long enough!

'May you be as prosperous and happy as Judah is,' they'll say. So don't be afraid or discouraged! Get on with rebuilding the Temple! 14 If you do, I will certainly bless you. TLB
