Is this a posture stance change for you rabbi? I guess in one view it would seem that way. Especially when you consider I have been through my entire history a firm alarm to not go buy what one line says, .. read the line before .. the line after.. then read the chapter.. then read the book .. (after teaching that once I deliberately read a line from a psalm ... you could hear the grown )
Still having been around for over 30 plus years I have found certain "one liners" hidden within scripture. When you stop and write them down , and read them they form an interesting dialogue with God! Not to mention they have this thing about sending us students into a spin that does not stop chasing the ball so to speak and gain more in our thirst to see where it goes!
Consider the fact these are God's words ... it makes one wonder is this God's way of speaking. I will allow God to answer for Himself! But while we wait .. let us have a little fun as we pretend any way that this is good theology
Got a bible handy ? If not keep one and some paper ,pen handy! Then go back re read, study tell me what you think .. for those that may have forgotten .. the bible is that black book on the shelf .. yea the one with the dust on it .. he he he
For space sake I am running this "theorem" using Parashah ( a selected set of text Jewish style .. will not find this in King James) 50, and 51 . This selection of readings is found in D'varim (Deuteronomy) Chapters 26:1 - 30: 20
