The language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 17, Video #7

2개월 전

Welcome to my Hebrew reading & language series.

Genesis 17:21-27

Why were blood covenants made? That is how people secured compliance years ago.

Today you go to court and they ask for a cash bond in order to secure someone's return to face trial. They hold your wealth in order to accept your promise to show up in the future.

Long ago, serious contracts required a promise of your life. You break it, you lose your life, and, life is in the blood.

In a way, it was like saying, "You bet your life!"

We are reading about the most important covenant in history. The Creator's promise to permanently link his involvement with a peculiar people. That promise is established, remembered, and confirmed with Abraham using a sign involving blood.
