Hebron, Judaism's oldest community, some 4,000 years old, is key to the Jewish people today

JD: Well let's talk just briefly about the importance of Hebron. We said that Abraham came there about 4,000 years ago and actually established the first Jewish community in the piece of real estate that God had promised the Jewish people. But then he purchased later when his wife died Mcpe cave for the purpose of burying himself and his wife Sarah there in Mcpe cave. That followed with Isaac and his wife and then Jacob and his wife Leah in the same location. This is the gravesite the burial site for the Jewish patriarchs and it’s key. And one other thought this is the entrance to the Garden of Eden so this is a very key location. It’s second most sacred piece of real estate in all the Jewish world it is key is it not?

DW: Yes Jimmy it really is, it’s a very very important site. It’s actually as I’ve mentioned to many different groups that have come in here they’re Jewish, Christian, or anybody else that of course it’s the roots of Judaism but it’s also the roots of all of monotheism the belief in one God. But one of the common denominators we do have is certainly a belief in one God and that all begins right here. It continues through the days of King David the beginning of David’s monotheism of Hebron and it continues over hundreds of thousands of years up until the present. It’s sort of like a long chain. We’re a link in that chain; we’re the latest link in that chain which is connected all the way back to thousands of years. And with God’s help our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren and all of them after us will continue that chain into history and it’s a chain as much as we can do anything about it’ll never be broken again.

JD: David Wilder with the importance of this ancient Jewish city founded by Abraham some 4,000 years ago.

 We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

God used Abraham to found this city of Hebron because of it’s importance especially because it’s the entrance to the Garden of Eden, that’s Genesis 2:8. King David became King of Judah in Hebron also because of its connection to the Garden of Eden. Today some 4,000 years later Hebron has around 1,000 Jewish souls living there.

Because of the fact that it is the burial site of the Jewish patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Hebron is Judaism’s second most sacred site, second only to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The fight for Jews to live in Hebron keeps that heritage alive and it will remain a part of the land that God has promised the Jewish people forever, that’s Ezekiel chapters 34, 36, and 37.
