Exegesis in the Light of Reason
1. Obama as a Simile. A place NAMED "Africa" in Florida, USA?
2.Â Previous Points Made Concerning Ruth
3. More Anti- Moabite Polemics
4. What Does the Expression "Field of Moab"Â Mean?
5. The Biblical Exegesis Principles ofÂ Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations
6.Â Some Hard Questions for the "Ruth was an Israelite"Â People.
TheÂ word exegesis means "critical explanation or interpretation of a text, especially of scripture".
Biblical Exegesis in our own studies goes according to the following principles.
a. Literal meaning. See The Literal Bible. When is Scripture to be Taken Literally?
b. Consistency with context and with the Bible in General.
c. Compatibility with the Sages and with Classical Jewish Rabbinical sources.
Â Ruth is describedÂ as one of the Moabite women (Ruth 1:4) whom the sons of Naomi married before their death. Ruth is described as a MoabitessÂ (Ruth 1:22, 2:26) and as a foreigner (Ruth 2:10).
IT IS CLAIMED that the intention is to Ruth the "Israelite" who lived in the country of Moab.
The Bible in hundreds of instances uses ethnic appellations such as Edomite, Moabite, Ammonite, Philistine, etc. The intention is always the simple meaning. Where in the Bible is the intention to Israelites who were merely living in the countries concerned?
As far as I know there are NONE in the "Old Testament" and there certainly are none as far as Moab is concerned.
Where do you draw the line?
If someone wants to argue differently they should prove it since the STATISTICAL MAJORITY of all cases, in this case all 100% of all proven cases, is as we say.
You have no problem with using computers, and cell-phones, and medicines, etc, produced by Jewish experts. Why should solutions to Biblical problems be any different?
2. Message from Scotland
Look forward to reading and watching more of your vids, as I have been doing a lot of research on the brit- ish Israelites connection, or Jacobites as we say in Scotta, as Scotta is where the named Scotland was derived from, the Hebrew princess, thanks again yair.
3. The Oppression by Edom Predicted!
Midrash Rabah Shmini (Leviticus) 11:5 the fourth river is the Prath [Euphrates]... this is Edom that increases and multiplies and oppresses Israel.
