Greetings, yet again to one and all, from “Lidj Yefdi” (pronounced Lij; Yêf-dee).
I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to seek insight) into the study of the Scriptures. So, with this Hebrew Shabbat(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied the Torah portion of W(V)aYetz’e – וַיֵּצֵא, on the 9th – יא, & the 10th – יב, of the month of Kislew(v) – כִּסְלֵו, in the year of 5782. (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation, where the current year is 2014/7514 these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known, also as; We’Tito – ወጥቶ, on the 3rd -, & the 4th – , of the month of Ch’ədár – ኅዳር. The Ethiopic calendar is solar(with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet – ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).
Genesis 28:10 – 32:3
Hosea 12: 13- 14:9
John 1: 19-51
This portion of the Scriptures tells of how Jacob left Canaan, for Haran. He was told by his parents, Isaac & Rebekah to seek out the people of Rebekah‘s brother, Laban. But while in route, Jacob fell asleep and was sent a vision from God(YHWH).
Jacob, after going off to sleep, had a vision of a ladder that had angels ascending & descending upon it.
Coming to a well, Jacob met the people of Laban , and his daughter Rachel. Jacob, later found himself twenty years in dowry to Laban for Rachel, whom he longer for.
(Scripture from the KJV gives the name of the people [of Laban;Bethuel;Rebekah;Sarah&Abraham] as “Syrian(s)“; but, its Masoretic text from the original Hebrew is more accurately “Aram” or “Aramaens“) :

Jacob begins to have children and time spends quickly as he has comes to the feeling that returning to his land would be more suitable for his large family and possessions.
The wives of Jacob, and their children had cleaved to him, for favor was with Jacob, in the God of his fathers. So, Jacob gathered his family, cattle and set out to return to his father, Isaac. Even at the pursuit of Laban, but Laban, could send his blessing for his children, and grandchildren, because God had blessed him since Jacob had come to live among his people. So the two(Jacob & Laban) made a covenant between each other, because Laban knew that God’s favor was with Jacob.
Upon the birth of his Joseph, Jacob then turned to Laban and set go out from among Laban and his people, seeking to return from where came in Canaan. Taking all that he had, his wives, children and their belongings he set off for Canaan.
