From Yahweh to Zion ePUB ✓ From Yahweh PDF or ↠ MOBI

Who is Yahweh? Where did he come from? How did this jealous vengeful exclusivist god shape the destiny of his chosen people? Can we trace a direct connection through twenty five centuries linking the cult of Yahweh to contemporary Zionism? It all starts with the Old Testament the ur text for any serious inuiry into the Jewish uestion That book – correctly known as the Torah – does not simply recount the history of a people It gives the children of Israel the keys to their divinely ordained destiny It was Jacob son of Isaac who returned from exile and took the name Israel a name inherited by the whole Jewish people long before it designated a nation state That single name unites the patriarch the people and the promised land The history of the Jewish people is intertwined with the history of humanity What role did Jews play in the fall of Byzantium? How have they influenced the Christian church? What role did they play in the two terrible “European civil wars” of the first half of the twentieth century? Yahweh’s people has always lived apart from the rest of humanity endlessly reproducing the same Biblical schema the Babylon captivity the flight from Egypt the Book of Esther This psychological template for the children of Abraham Isaac and Jacob unites them alone against the world from the vengeance holiday of Purim to the sacralized memory of the Holocaust Even the creation of the modern nation state of Israel has had no effect on the “invisible walls” of the “Jewish prison” This book is not just a scholarly inuiry into the history of an idea It is also an appeal to our Jewish brothers and sisters to liberate themselves from a mythology that imprisons them in a schizophrenic relationship to the world Alternately a chosen people and a cursed people a people carrying a divine message and a people who kill the divine messengers eternal guides to humanity and its eternal victims To be born Jewish is to be born beneath the heavy weight of 2500 years of history

    If you have an interest in history and how we got to where we are today and you have not read this book then you are probably missing crucial information I have never seen such a comprehensive connecting information and data over 2500 years that can help one round out their understanding of how these things still affect events of today Even if you come to some different conclusions than he does it remains a valuable examination in my opinion It is well organized the translation is excellent easy to read and the research is superb It is too packed full of information to pick out any one thing to write in a short review one just has to go through it

    Mindblowing expose Stretch your mind at the very coreThe author is entirely convincing in his presentation of possibly the biggest issue confronting humanity today which is none other than the teachings of the old testament of the bible If you dare why not test your understanding or belief with this book It's no walk in the park But perhaps the only practical solution to the jewish uestion is presented here which uestion in this day and age has transmorphed into one that affects the entire human race I do hope for the sake of humanity that a critical contingent may break away from the age old shackles so that we all can escape from what now seems a near certain future of dystopia
