The Truth of Genesis: The Jews Are Chosen By Yehovah, Part 5A

On the record, we have God speaking to Adam, Eve, Cain, and then Noah.  Noah was born in 3211 BC, and his father, named Lamech, died in 2616 BC.  However, we do not read where God revealed His name to them.  God later spoke to Abraham, and Isaac, but still, no personal name was given.  It seems like God was known as “the god that has no name”.

Who are the Jews, and what does it mean to be a Jew? 

For what reason do certain people dislike the Jews?

What makes the Jews different from everyone else, is that they are Hebrews.  What is a Hebrew? 

In the King James’ Bible, the word “Hebrew” is first used in reference to Abram (Abraham).  When Abram was 75 years old, in 2243 BC, Yehovah called Abram to “come out” from his family in Haran, in the northern part of Canaan, which is now SE Turkey. 

Perhaps twelve years earlier, the family had lived in, and moved out from, Ur of the Chaldees (Babylon), when Abram’s youngest brother (Haran) died.  The Hebrews are people that have been “called out by God to be separated”, and to “cross over” into the knowledge of our Creator.

Resuming from Part 4, Noah’s Flood was in 2611 BC, followed by the division of the continents (Babel Tower) in 2509 BC, and Abram being born in 2318 BC.  The word “priest” is first found in Genesis 14:18, where it speaks of Melchizedek. 

When Abram journeyed on a rescue campaign (2232 BC) to save his nephew and family, roughly twenty-four miles west of present day Jerusalem, Abram stopped by a mysterious city, named Salem, on his way back. 

I speculate that it was a relatively small walled city, where the Temple Mount is today in Jerusalem, near where Abram would later take his son Isaac to be sacrificed fifty-two years later.

The city had been there since the flood, so as mankind ventured into the area, it was already in existence.  No one knew who built the city, yet it was said that its King had no father or mother, and that He was “the Priest of the Most High God”. 

No one ever went into the city, and only the King was known to come out only once, to greet Abram.  Melchizedek was the physical manifestation of Yehovah, who made the city for the sole purpose of being the shadow picture of the coming Messiah. 

This is the revelation of Psalms 110, that the Messiah would be both a priest (Levite), and a king (Judean), as explained in Part 6.  Melchizedek gave Abram bread (of life), which would be the body of the Messiah, and wine, which would later be the Messiah’s blood for forgiveness of sin.  

We’ll discuss this further in Part 5B: Yehovah Finally Reveals His Name!!!

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
