How many times do I have to explain to you people that a covenant is an agreement... You make an agreement with the promise to keep it...The agreement with Ishmael is not the same as with Abraham. The agreement with Abraham is not the same as with Moses. You have no idea what a covenant is...And how does this help you? Abraham received the covenant first before Ishmael.
Then you are saying God made no promise to Abraham. Because Abraham was a gentile...The only promise to gentiles was given to Noah not to flood the world again and the sign of the rainbow.
Therefore Abraham was a Gentile...not a Jew...not a descendant of IsraelAbraham's promise was that the world would be blessed through his descendants, Israel.
the law was given to the Children of Israel...the law does not make a stranger an Israelite...What is your point here?The law was given at Mt. Sinai. One law for the native and stranger.
the Messiah does...Christianity has nothing to do with the promise.
Genesis 22:18Yes, and his descendants.
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
When and where have the Jews as a nation blessed the world...?https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/02/world/middleeast/israel-migrants-african.htmlYes, but his descendants were. And they've blessed the world.
Ask the Palestinians if the Jews have been a blessing to them.
No, I didn't...you cannot use the same argument to mean seed as a nation and seed as one person from the loins of Abraham for the messiah....So which is it ? Does the messiah come from the seed of Abraham...Or is Israel the nation the Messiah?Again, you made a dunce of a mistake again. Reread Genesis 22:17-18. The seed are like stars in the sky, Israel. Rotfl...
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
Who is the person God is giving for a covenant /agreement in Isaiah 49:8 Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?Do you keep Acts 15.
nope...And a good one.
Moses...did God appear to you personally and give you a law? If not you follow what Moses say...Judaism isn't based on following a man, but God.
and Tanakh is based on Moses writingsSo you can create your own religion without a basis in Tanakh, and you have.
No, it is based on Abraham... Islam believes in one God...Ishmael was before Israel...Following a monotheistic God is based on Judaism, as well as the ideas of moral laws and covenants.
Then you are waiting for his appearance...what is the sign of his coming?Which he hasn't.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
please explain to me what sanctuary Daniel is talking about that will be destroyed
That is not a valid reason...The NT was also written by JewsBecause is was written by Jews.
That does not solve your dilemma...The NT was written by JewsRemove from the bible what was written by Jews.
The NT is about...this person who the nation of Israel abhorreth...Its a fact. Not a choice. The NT is not needed. You need the Tanakh. This is so funny.
7 Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.
8 Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
So where is your messiah? is he late in coming...where is the sanctuary that will be destroyed?See above.
proverbs 16I'm glad I didn't. It was easy. Why settle for 2nd place?
5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
