Re: Black Lives Still Matter

Just know that we're not going to be victims anymore either. In Israel or here by antisemitic pieces of shit. "We"? There is no "we." Despite your Kahanist bombast and the embarrassing demise of Israel's Zionist left, there is a growing segment of world Jewry sickened and incensed by Israel's appar...

Re: Black Lives Matter

To their credit both sides of "The Palestinian Problem" have generally avoided/toned down their attempted merger/hijacking of the George Floyd issue. The Hard Left which likes to generally match Israel/Israel supporters with the villain of the issue and Jewish organizations that try to match histor...

Bibleworks is/was a superb product. Really no other choice for a Jew. ...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

The most striking part of the Joseph story is his femininity, at least through his service to Potiphar. For example - Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age; and he made him a coat of many colours. (Gen. 37:3 JPS) ‎ כְּתֹ֥נֶת פַּסִּֽים - coat of ma...

Re: "baramin" - bad grammar in Hebrew

May I point out that although you went to the unusual effort to post a link to Strong's for bara in your post, I haven't been exactly overwhelmed by any substantial additional value in your posts here in general. OK, although I do not recall posting a link to Strong's (other than indirectly). I und...

Re: "baramin" - bad grammar in Hebrew

Always nice to look at the one part of the bible everyone knows. ‎בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ ׃ (Gen. 1:1 WTT) When God began to create heaven and earth (Gen. 1:1 TNK) IN THE beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Re: "baramin" - bad grammar in Hebrew

On the other hand, there are those who would argue that bara does not mean 'created' in Gn 1:1. How? Looking elsewhere in the Bible, it appears in contexts that clearly indicate giving some form to pre-existing material. Strong's Hebrew: 1254. בָּרָא (bara') -- choose So that word alone does not sa...
