The book of Genesis is being read in synagogues in Israel and aound the world to confirm the Jewish claim for the land of Israel

At this time of the year, synagogues around the world are reading the biblical book of Genesis in an act of confirmation for Jewish claims on the land that they say God promised to the Jewish people through the Jewish patriarch, Abraham and passed down through Isaac and Jacob to the Jews today.

Genesis 12-17 will be read aloud in the synagogues detailing the divinely commanded journeys of the patriarch, Abraham from his father's house in Mesopotamia, modern-day Iraq, to the land of Israel. The Torah portion found in Genesis 23 detailing the purchase of the Machpelah Cave in Hevron will also be read as thousands of Jews follow tradition by flocking to Hevron for the occasion.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Jewish worshipers around the world read the biblical book of Genesis in their synagogues, they confirm the Jewish claim for the land of Israel today which is also confirmed in Bible prophecy.

Every year religious Jews read through the Torah - the first five books of the Old Testament - and have done so as long as they have had their Holy Scriptures. In the fall of the year, the reading will be done in the book of Genesis, as they start the reading cycle over again at the first of the Jewish year.

The biblical account found in Genesis 12-17 reveals the Jewish patriarch, Abraham's journey from his home in Ur of the Chaldees, along the Euphrates River, up over the Fertile Crescent, and down into what was then called Canaan, today called Israel. In Genesis 15, God made a promise to Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob - the line of promise - that all the land Abraham could see would be his and his descendants forever. A close look at Genesis 15 and all the other 38 passages of scripture describing the land God promises to the Jews is 10 times what they have today and includes: half of Egypt, all of Israel, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, three quarters of Iraq, and three quarters of Saudi Arabia.

The reading of Genesis and the prophetic passages of the Bible in Jewish synagogues will indeed confirm that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
