I am not under lockdown. At least I think so. I hardly sense any difference at all.
A bit less work and more time for bible reading, yeah, that’s all. People are on the sunny streets of Munich as usual, maybe fewer, however stores closed. Some wear masks, but few and less traffic. Nothing special and quite enjoyable.
Luke 11:17 “Every kingdom with divisions (democratic parties?) will be brought to desolation”
Take that in contrast to the call for strict unanimity for the community of believers of later bible verses.
Jesus tells the Israelite to “love the neighbour”.
So of course, the shrewd Israelite asks the rhetorical question “who is my neighbour?” in a way a smartass race-aware troublemaker expects a “Okay, Your racial brother in blood” answer of the Isaiah 58,7 type “help your kinsman since he is your brother in blood”
By using a mixed-race man of a disrespected nation in his parable and by confirming that this man should be loved in
Jeshua’s mindset is made quite clear regardless of main-stream interpretation of the bible (Israel=“jews”) or Brit’Ish Israelite/CI interpretation of the bible.
Jeshua seems to be lax on the racial aspect of brother- and neighbourhood, huh! That is quite astounding to me.
But wanting to vindicate himself, he said to Yeshua, “Then who is my neighbor?”
Luke 10: 29
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
Isaiah 58: 7
That is spiritual bread and it is to be shared with those who spiritually want to be filled. In this Scripture, they are spiritually equivalent to the man who was attacked by robbers, who stripped him and beat him and left, abandoning him as half dead. That man needs Help, even a Physician. He is near death and will die if his needs are not met.
So is the one who seeks spiritual medicine. They know they are near Death. But have you ever tried to feed a man in his last hour? He has no appetite.
