The religious Jews around the world have a weekly reading in the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, which is read and discussed in the synagogues as these Jews read through Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy in one year. Thousands of Jews gathered in the city of Hevron to read the portion of the Torah, Genesis 23, which is the record of the Jewish patriarch Abraham purchasing the Machpelah Cave as the burial site for his wife Sarah.
Hevron, the burial site for the Jewish patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has about 850 Jews living there today and the Jewish community there say they will not leave the land that God has given to them.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Tens of thousands of Jews gathered in Hevron, the oldest Jewish community in history, looks to the past as they read from the Bible, but their presence in Hevron today speaks of a scenario found in Bible prophecy for tomorrow.
Religious Jews read a portion of the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, on a weekly basis and they say it is a blessing to be able to read the Bible from the actual location mentioned in their weekly reading. That was the case as tens of thousands of religious Jews gathered in Hevron to read Genesis 23 which is the record of the ancient Jewish patriarch Abraham purchasing the burial site for his wife Sarah there in Hevron at the Machpelah Cave. The small Jewish community today living in Hevron, about 850 Jews, is determined that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will not affect their continued presence in Hevron, the oldest Jewish community in the world dating back to Abraham some 4000 years ago.
Not only did Abraham pay cash money for Hevron but the ancient Jewish prophets tell us that in the last days Jews will come back into the land of their forefathers to live there forever (Ezekiel 34 and 36). Ezekiel and other Jewish prophets reveal the battle that will take place between the Jews in Hevron and in fact throughout all of Israel and their Arab enemies that will try to eliminate the Jews from their promised land (Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11:40-45, and Joel 2).
Tens of thousands of Jews in Hevron to read the Bible is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
