Din vremea lui Mashiach

     Arheologii efectueaza deja de mai multe decenii sapaturi in toate colturile Ierusalimului. In mod regulat sunt gasite vestigii senzationale, care ofera noi informatii in legatura cu viata orasului din timpuri stravechi. ” Asa cum astazi mai schimbam din cand in cand decorul de la noi din casa, si pe vremuri oamenii isi schimbau aspectul locuitei in functie de ultima moda sau obligati fiind de apa care distrugea picaturile murale. De aceste schimbari nu scapau nici mozaicurile , care dupa o anumita vreme se decolorau, devenind inestetice”. Hillel Geva este un arheolog care lucreaza in cadrul Fundatiei Wohl, fundatie ce dispune de o proprietate mare in cartierul evreiesc, din partea  veche al Ierusalimului. Acolo a fost descoperita o intreaga zona rezidentiala, unde isi aveau locuintele evreii bogati din Ierusalim. Acest cartier din vechime este acum deschis publicului larg. Descoperirea ne prezinta modul de viata al evreilor avuti  de acum aproape 2000 de ani, adica exact din vremea lui Yeshua Ha Mashiach . ” Nu stim exact cate locuinte am descoperit aici, deoarece lucrurile sunt cam amestecate”, a mentionat Geva. ” Este insa clar ca fiecare familie isi permitea cel putin doua camere de baie, avand in plus chiar si sali de baie private pentru ritualul scufundarii ( este vorba de baia ritualica pe care orice evreu o face inainte de-a intra in Shabbat ). S-au pastrat cazi de baie intregi si bai acoperite cu var , pe ai caror pereti inca se pot observa urmele lasate de apa , la care se ajungea coborand niste trepte late.”
Cartierul bogatasilor, al negustorilor si al familiilor de preoti de odinioara, era situat chiar peste drum de Templul lui Irod. In anul 1968 , statul Israel a decis sa transporte molozul , sa dezgroape tot cartierul , iar apoi sa costruiasca din nou case pe stalpi , deasupra descoperirilor arheologice.
Vara trecuta,  in sala de primire a celei mai mari vile din zona , arheologii au facut o descoperire senzationala : a fost dezgropat un mozaic mare , cu decoratii serpuite in alb si negru , si cu marginile rosii. Acesta urmeaza sa fie restaurat de specialistii de la Muzeul Israel. Mai mult , la 30 cm sub mozaicul serpuit , arheologii au descoperit un alt mozaic inca si mai vechi , cu pietre de dimensiuni ceva mai mari, reprezentand forme geometrice care fac trimitere la stilul elenistic antic. Pentru a nu incalca Porunca biblica referitoare la facerea de chipuri cioplite, evreii nu reproduceau nicio figura umana. S-a constatat ca mozaicul mai vechi provine de la inceputul primului secol d. Ch. Prin urmare , putem presupune ca acesta era deja acolo cand Yeshua a intrat in Ierusalim  , cu putin timp inainte de rastignirea Sa. Fusese ” peticit” de mai multe ori , pana cand stapanii casei s-au hotarat sa il acopere si sa comande un mozaic nou. Conform datelor arheologilor, acest lucru trebuie sa fi avut loc, in jurul anului 40, adica la aproximativ  7 ani dupa rastignirea lui Isus Christos  – Yeshua Ha Mashiach ,  si cu 30 de ani inainte de distrugerea Ierusalimului de catre romani. Un strat gros de cenusa si o moneda datand din al doilea an al revoltei impotriva romanilor, care au fost gasite pe mozaic, constituie dovezi palpabile in sprijinul celor afirmate mai sus.
Geva nu a putut raspunde la intrebarea legata de numele stapanului casei: ” Numai in casa vecina am gasit o masura de greutate cu numele Bar Kathros sculptat pe ea. Din pacate, doar mult mai tarziu a aparut obiceiul de a inscriptiona numele ctitorului si al altor persoane pe mozaicuri”. Bar Kathros,  a carui pivnita si bucatarie au fost scoase la lumina ( sit arheologic cu numele de Casa arsa ce poate fi vizitat astazi de publicul larg ) , apare descris in scrierile evreiesti ca un preot corupt , fiind acuzat ca ar fi vandut marfuri folosind greutati falsificate. Confirmarea acestor acuze a venit din partea unei echipe de arheologi dupa aproape 2000 de ani ; greutatile din casa lui nu corespundeau cu cele folosite in acea vreme.

  1. Cristina Sitaru Stoian spune:

    Shalom, iubita Otniela . Sunt fascinata de aceasta decoperire minunata , in care numele Domnului Isus este proslavit. Cred ca orice loc pe unde a umblat Domnul nostru Ieshua striga dupa El. Nici un sceptic nu are voie sa se mai indoiasca de existenta Fiului lui Dumnezeu, nici o urma de necredinta sa nu se mai arate !
    Fiti binecuvatata si umbrita de mana Lui tare !

  2. Catalina spune:

    Multumesc Otniela pentru aceasta informatie. Dumnezeu fie cu dvs in aceasta lucrare.

  3. Paul spune:

    E faina de tot stirea ! Sunt de acord , ateii si scepticii trebuie sa accepte dovezile arheologiei. shalom.

  4. Daniel Alexandru Galeriu spune:

    Sarut mainile , duduie Otniela. Shalom. O stire imbucuratoare cu-atat mai mult cand e vorba de Domnul Isus Iesua. Sunt sigur ( vorbind ca un istoric ce sunt ) ca expertii arheologi din Israel fac o treaba formidabila. Citeam intr-o revista de specialitate ca sunt cei mai buni in sapaturile la mari adancimi ( au excavatoare superdotate ) si cei mai ” tari ” in descifrarea tablitelor. Bine ca in toate acestea ni se releva ca Biblia nu poate sa minta si tot ceea ce scrie in aceasta Carte se implineste chiar sub ochii nostri.

  5. Anca Gore spune:

    Foarte frumos Otniela ! Adevarat , Domnul nostru traieste si lucreaza cand intr-un fel cand in altul. Nimeni nu se va putea dezvinovati ca nu a stiut nimic de Domnul Ieshua.
    Multumesc pentru aceasta stire care mi-a adus bucurie in suflet. Binecuvantat fie Israelul , poporul lui Dumnezeu ! shalom !

  6. Lisa spune:

    Fii rasplatita pentru aceasta stire , draga Otniela. Dumnezeu se ingrijeste de Israel pentru ca il iubeste. Ma bucur foarte tare de blogul tau . Cred imi mai trebuie timp pentru sa-l citesc de la un capat la altul. Dar voi face asa cand ma intorc in Eret.

  9. Dana spune:

    Sabat Salom!

    Pe cand Regele Regilor-Yeshua Ha Mashiah umbla in Israel cu ucenicii in sinagogi si in Templu se citea Tora in fiecare Shabat.Acest obicei se mentine si astazi asa incat va invit sa citim impreuna pericopa saptamanii comentata de organizatia Messianic Bible.

    Pricopele saptamanale sunt copiate de subsemnata din http://www.messianicbible.com si postate aici cu permsiunea proprietarei blogului .

    KI TETZE (When You Go Out)
    Deuteronomy 21:10–25:19; Isaiah 54:1–10; 1 Corinthians 5:1–5
    “When you go forth [ki tetze] to battle against your enemies and the Lord your God delivers them into your hands….” (Deuteronomy 21:10)

    Last week, in Parsha Shoftim, we examined the concept of judges, judgment and justice.
    This week’s Parsha (Torah portion) begins with God’s expectations that we treat people, including female captives of war, with kindness, respect, and human decency.
    For instance, if an Israelite soldier saw a beautiful woman among those taken captive during battle, and desired her for a wife, he was first required to allow her to grieve for a full month the bitterness of her captivity. Even if he didn’t want her afterward, he couldn’t sell her or treat her as a slave (Deuteronomy 21:10-14).
    When we hear of the brutal raping and inhumane treatment to which Christian women in Egypt, the Palestinian territories, and elsewhere in the Muslim world, as well as conquered women elsewhere are subjected today, it’s comforting to know God’s mind on the subject.
    He has made it the duty of every Israeli soldier to show kindness and respect to women, even if they are from the enemy camp.

    God’s laws command kindness toward all people, even slaves, and also toward animals. Animal cruelty is forbidden in Judaism.
    “A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.” (Proverbs 12:10)
    In fact, even Abraham’s servant chose a wife for Isaac based on her kindness in offering water to his camels when he asked for water from the well.
    Although people may be cruel, God is kind. His loving kindness is, in fact, better than life! (Psalm 63:3)

    While we see the kind, compassionate, merciful nature of God in His instruction regarding the humane treatment of female captives of war in this Parsha, a few verses later, the harsher side of God’s justice seems to emerge in the issue of disciplining stubborn, rebellious children.
    God commands parents of rebellious sons to bring them to the men of the city to be stoned to death. This harsh penalty was only to be used as a last resort for sons who were drunkards and gluttons, who stubbornly refused to be corrected, despite their parents’ repeated chastening.
    “So shall you put away the evil from the midst of you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.” (Deuteronomy 21:21)

    The Hebrew word (yare) translated as ‘fear’ here literally means psychological fear in the absolute sense and not awe or respect as some might suppose, although in other instances it can mean revere or awe (Exodus 34:30; Psalm 33:8).

    The severe penalty for a grown son who was utterly stubborn and rebellious toward his parents—and thereby God—was meant to serve as a powerful warning to wayward children.
    This, of course, by no means advocates that we brutalize or stone our ‘prodigal sons’ to death! Chas v’chalilah! (God forbid!)
    In fact, the Jewish sages tell us that this law was never carried out. An important principle, however, is involved here that is meant to grab our attention.
    The presence of this law in the Torah emphasizes that rebellion and disobedience to parents is taken very seriously by God.
    Indeed, the letter to the Ephesians reminds us to “Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.” (Ephesians 6: 2-3)

    Casting the First Stone
    Other sins also carried the stoning penalty, including adultery. We can see in Scripture that adulterers were punished by stoning them to death in Biblical times.
    In John’s gospel, Yeshua (Jesus) did not forbid stoning when it came to punishing the woman caught in adultery; however, he did tell the people standing ready with stones in their hands, “Let he who has no sin cast the first stone.” (John 8:7)
    Through this example, Yeshua taught us that we need to examine our own hearts and our own lives before we exercise judgment and punishment.
    Parents can learn from Yeshua’s example as it illumines how they are to relate to their children.

    The task of raising children to honor and obey the authorities over them—parents, teachers, law enforcement officers, and ultimately God Himself—is of the utmost importance, and it does require that parents search themselves for hidden sin.
    Some children are easier to train than others. Children who are compliant, obedient, and eager-to-please are a joy and a delight.
    However, parents may have been blessed with strong-willed children who are a colossal challenge. How are these children a blessing, you might wonder?
    These are the children who push parents to the absolute end of themselves, forcing parents to the foot of the cross crying out for God’s mercy.
    They may seem to bring out the worst in parents and in everyone around them, but this also has an upside, since it shines a light in the darkness that lurks hidden in a parent’s heart.

    Discipline is Love
    In the parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32), Yeshua shows a sense of compassion and mercy in the case of a wayward son. Through this parable He reveals the heart of God toward the lost, and how He views the return of rebellious children:
    “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20)
    Notice that although the father loved his rebellious son and was filled with compassion for him, he didn’t rescue him from the consequences of his sinful choices. He patiently waited for the son to ‘come to his senses’ and return home.
    Although we must diligently discipline our children when they are young, we can also allow them to learn through suffering the consequences of their actions, especially as they grow older.

    The Book of Proverbs states that if we fail to discipline our children, we don’t love them, but hate them:
    “Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.” (Proverbs 13:24)
    If we don’t teach our children to obey authority, restrain their passions, and consider other people, we do them no favor.
    Nevertheless, we must take care that we don’t abuse our authority and thereby, provoke them to wrath (Ephesians 6:4).
    Most parents have heard the adage “Spare the rod, and you will spoil the child,” which arises from the advice in the Book of Proverbs to use rebuke and the rod to correct children.
    “The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother…. Correct your son, and he will give you rest; yes, he will give delight to your soul.” (Proverbs 29:15, 17)
    When it comes to disciplining children, failure is not an option.
    In the First Book of Samuel, the soft-hearted high priest Eli failed to discipline his sons, who had cast off all restraint. Because of this, judgment fell on the house of Eli. He lost the priesthood and his sons died young (1 Samuel 2:27).

    The Rod of the Good Shepherd
    In the Bible, the rod is a symbol of authority.
    The word for rod in Hebrew is not makel, which means stick. Rather it’s shevet, which is translated rod, branch, and scepter. The rod was used by the shepherd to safeguard the sheep.
    Every shepherd of Israel had a rod (shevet) and a staff that were used to guide, protect, and set boundaries for the sheep. The shepherd used the rod to drive away predators like coyotes and wolves. He didn’t use his rod to beat his sheep.
    Psalm 23 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want… Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
    Yeshua said, “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd gives his life for his sheep.” (John 10:11)

    Yeshua, the Good Shepherd, carefully watches over the welfare of His flock. He gave His very life for His sheep.

    His rod (shevet) and staff are our comfort when walking through the valley of the shadow of death, as He leads us to the green pastures and still waters of eternal life.
    Young children also need this kind of sacrificial shepherding from their parents so that they don’t stray into paths where they could be injured or destroyed.

    Marriage and Divorce
    Several other laws are discussed in this Parsha, including instructions about burying criminals promptly after execution, restoring lost property, the prohibition of men wearing woman’s apparel and divorce.
    When it comes to marriage and divorce, God considers the marriage bond holy. In His mercy, however, He makes provision for our weak humanity.
    Although God hates divorce, in some cases such as adultery, He made concessions.

    Despite the ease with which the marital vow in Jewish law can be dissolved, the prevalence of divorce is much lower among the Jewish population than other people groups.

    This might be due to the strong sense of community that sustains Jewish couples and families, as well as the low incidence of drunkenness, substance abuse, or
    domestic violence among Jewish families.

    Haftarah (Prophetic Portion of Scripture)
    “For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall My covenant of peace be removed, says the
    Lord that has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10)
    In this week’s Haftarah portion, God pledges through the Prophet Isaiah His everlasting kindness.
    God’s anger is momentary but His kindness is forever!
    Just as He swore that the flood (waters of Noah) would never occur again, He swears that He will always have mercy on His people (Isaiah 54:8-9).
    According to God’s law, because of Israel’s stubborn rebelliousness and unfaithfulness to Him, God could have legally opted to divorce His Bride, Israel.
    “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way….” (Isaiah 53: 6)
    God, in His mercy, however, has chosen not to divorce Israel, even though she has at times turned to other gods and idols. Who can fathom this kind of love?
    What’s more, God has provided an eternal covenant of peace between us through Yeshua’s death on the execution stake.
    “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53: 5)

    Pray with us that Israel will see Yeshua, their Prince of Peace and Good Shepherd, in the prophetic Scriptures and look upon Him who they have pierced and “mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child. (Zechariah 12:10, see also John 19:37; Revelation 1:7)”

    Shabbat Shalom from all of our ministry staff!
    I will bless those who bless Israel. (Genesis 12:3)

    Mulțumim Otniela că ne faci să le auzim!

  15. Sebastian R. spune:

    Dumnezeu ne uimeste cand se proslaveste. Chiar si prin pietre…dar e trist cand noi tacem , si cand in locul nostru vorbesc pietrele. Domnul sa aduca trezirea credinciosilor intr-un singur mare gand , gandul la Isus – Ieshua, si la jertfa Lui. N-am meritat salvarea nici evrei , cu-atat mai putin noi neamurile…Si-atunci cum sa nu Ii multumim lui Dumnezeu pentru sacrificiul Fiului Sau ? Sarut mana .

  16. Luigi spune:

    shalom. Mai bine sa vorbim chiar daca multi ne vor considera nebuni. Asa se intampla …cum vrei sa spui ceva de Isus Iesua toti intra in panica…Frumoase stiri , Otniela ! Multumim.

Participarea Dvs la acest topic este onoranta, iar bucuria mea , pe care o incerc mereu atunci cand vad cat de frumos se implica Biserica in problematica Israel , este coplesitoare. Fie ca Dumnezeul lui Israel , ACELASI, si UNUL pentru noi toti, sa va daruiasca cel mai frumos Shalom , in suflet si in viata; EL sa va inspire si sa va motiveze marturisirea , in asa fel incat pietrele sa nu mai strige niciodata , ci mai degraba sa se odihneasca tacute, pana la venirea in Glorie a Fiului lui Dumnezeu, a Celui mai de seama Fiu al Israelului. Fiti binecuvantati din Sion !
