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 Toldot – תּוֹלְדֹת, on the 1st –  א, & the 2nd – ב, of the month of Kislew(v) – כִּסְלֵו, in the year of 5779. (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the MoonFrom an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation, where the current year is 2011/7511; these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known, also as; Tiwildim Y’h New – ትውልድም ይህ ነውon the 30th – ፴, of the (ወርኀ)month of T’Qĭmt – ጥቅምት; & the 1st – ፩, 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).

Readings:

Genesis 25: 19- 28:9

Malachi 1: 1- 2:7

Psalm 78; I Cor. 3 ; Job 31; Jhn 8

Jhn 1; Psalm 139; I Jhn 2;

toldot - parsha4

This week’s portion of the study of the Scriptures, is Toldot, by Hebrew meaning “generations“, pertaining to descent.  Coincidentally, the readings begin the Rebekah enduring a long period of time where she was barren; having no child with her husband, IsaacIsaac loved Rebekah dearly, & pleaded God on her behalf.

[Gen. 25: 20-21]

His prayers were accounted for and God blessed them, because Rebekah conceived.

[Gen. 25: 19-23]

Rebekah & Isaac

Rebekah was due to give birth to twins, in which God spoke to her, saying that that were two nations that struggled within her.

Two manner of people, that would be separated from her.  One would be stronger than the other, and the older would serve the younger.  Thus Esau & Jacob were born to, Rebekah &Isaac.  Esau was a skilled hunter, Jacob was a simple man, dwelling in tents, wholesome.  But, leaving a man of the field to match wits with a man of intellect, Jacob was able to convince Esau to give up his birthright. (But Esau, despising his birthright made it all but difficult)

[Gen. 25: 24-34]

Jacob (L) & Esau (R) _ painting by James J. Tissot

After convincing Esau to give up his birthright, Jacob, with the help of his mother Rebekah also was able to receive a blessing from his father, Isaac. ( a blessing that was meant for Esau)

Esau, even took wives from among the Hittites, which was of concern for Rebekah & Isaac.

[Gen. 26]

Isaac blessing Jacob -by Gustave Dore' from the 1865 La Sainte Bible

Esau, then recognizes what his brother has done to him & despises him for it.  Rebekah, once again help Jacob, making him flee to her brother Laban, because his brother’s anger was kindled against.  Rebekah also sought that her son Jacob should not take a wife from among the children of Heth.

[Gen. 27]

Jacob & Laban (the Syrian/Aramaen)

Esau seeing that he blessed Jacob, & charged him not to take a wife of the children of Canaan, he(Esau) went to Ismael, & took wives of his people.

[Gen. 28: 1-9]

[Gen. 18: 9-19]

Destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah _ painting by John Martin

After the Sodom & Gomorrah‘s obliteration, Lot was left with only his two daughters.  They feared that wouldn’t be married, so they, the two daughters devised a plan to procure children from their father’s lineage.

[Gen. 19]

wayeira -parsha [Destruction_of_Sodom_&_Gomorrah]

Meanwhile, Abraham passes off his wife, Sarah, for his sister; in the hopes that it would spare his life, to a king named Abimelech.  God, speaks to Abimelech in a vision of sleep, & informs him that Abraham, and Sarah are not brother and sister, but husband and wife.  Also, because of their presence in Abimelech‘s kingdom, all of the wombs were closed up.  Abimelech, of course, confronts Abraham for this, but they both are reconciled with each other and even, make a covenant between them in Be’ersheba.

[Gen. 20]

Sarah, then gave birth to a son of Abraham, and named him IsaacHagar, who was Sarah‘s handmaiden, but had become a mother of Abraham‘s firstborn son; mocked her, in that she gave birth in her old age.

[Gen. 21: 1-10]
