It is written at wiki that the word 'Deuteronomy' is from the Greek 'Deuteronomion' and it means 'second law'. Apparently the English title is from a Greek mis-translation of the Hebrew phrase 'mishneh ha-torah ha-zoth' meaning 'copy of this law', in Deuteronomy 17:18 is cited, as to deuteronomion touto' this second law'.
Is that right? I do not feel so.
Do I accept all bible translations has literal? No. Do I accept all commentaries and explanations by Jewish rabbi's of the Hebrew texts? No. A Jewish poet once wrote 'Reading the bible in translation is like kissing your new bride through a veil'. Haim Nachman Bialik.
Thomas Paine also said 'The bible is a book that has been read more and examined less than any book that ever existed'. Is that true now? No, this is the 21st century and it was born in HER wisdom not his.
Following on from the last post, Jeff Benner from the Ancient Hebrew Research Centre provided five videos on 'Heaven and Hell', do check them out, it is a work in progress and Jeff Benner and his work has been honored in Israel.
Has we know Spirit do like a play on words; and the 'RONOMY' part of the word is interesting in this timeline. Especially has the cause of the Romany Gypsies are in the forefront of the causes in the UK in this region of it. I am sure that I have written about this before in previous years, so do check out the archives. It is also written that the Romany gypsies found in Europe have DNA that proves their origin and migration from India. The travelers are to be given the same respect that every Indian is given in this country. The fact that some chose to remain freemen and women, and did not bow to the pressure of the elemental forces of earthly governments to push them into social housing. Has to be applauded by every person that stands for freedom in this world. Did the desert Hebrews live in houses or tents? They lived in temporary homes like the Native Americans, so that they could move with the seasons. Remember Prophet Jeremiah reminded his people that they did not know the way of the LORD, and that even the birds know the time of their migration.
The Jewish people are reminded of this fact every single year. Yet, do they truly understand it? In fact, do the Americans that live in the bible belt understand it? The Indians of the USA and Canada, are more in harmony with the ancient Hebrews than anyone that lives in Israel in a house that cannot move with the times and the seasons. However, Prophet Isaiah did deliver the message from the LORD our God, 'where is the house that you shall build for me?'. He wasn't speaking about a religious building either, for there are no religious buildings to be in New Jerusalem. Nor shall there be any cars or bikes with petrol fumes.
No, it has to be ecological and self-sustainable, it is the only way now. Humanity simply will not survive without ecological self-sustainability. It really is has simple has that!
No surprise then that when I was a child, I spent up to 50% of my life living in a caravan in Kent countryside. There truly was a very powerful message in that!
