MONUMENTE VAN GELOOF

Die Parashah van Gen 23:1 tot 25:18 wat “Chayei Sarah” (The life of Sarah) genoem word, beskryf die dood van beide Sarah en Avraham. Sarah se lewe en dood word saamgevat in Gen 23:1-2 “En die lewensjare van Sarah was honderd sewe en twintig jaar. Dit was die lewensjare van Sarah. En Sarah het gesterf … Continue reading

VAN WANHOOP TOT INNERLIKE STERKTE

Daar is mense wat dink geloof en religie (Eng. “religion”) is dieselfde ding.  As mens bloot na die oorsprong van die woord “religie” kyk, kan dit een van drie dinge beteken: (1) die her-lees van geskrifte of  die herhaalde nadenke oor gebeurtenisse wat ‘n bo-natuurlike dimensie vertoon – “re-legere” beteken “weer (en weer) lees” – … Continue reading

A QUESTION OF BELIEF

Questions are very much part of our lives. Sometimes our questions are simple and practical, and require just a “yes” or a “no” (Have you remembered to switch off the stove?). Sometimes we use a “who” or a “what” or a “when” with our questions and then a more specific answer is required (When did … Continue reading

GELOOF, HOOP EN INTEGRITEIT

Vandag, 10 Februarie 2018, is dit presies 5 jaar gelede dat een van die mees bekende rabbi’s van Israel se meer onlangse geskiedenis oorlede is. David Hartman het 81 jaar oud geword en sal onthou word as iemand wat tot die dag van sy dood, sy lewe daaraan gewy het om transformasie en herlewing en … Continue reading

HOW FEAR CAN BE TURNED AROUND

When Yaákov found himself in a situation where he had to face Esau again, after many years of living in two separate worlds, Scriptures simply tell us: “And Yaákov was greatly afraid and distressed” (Gen 32:7). Over the centuries, the Jewish sages have come up with two very interesting comments on this Parashah, which includes … Continue reading

BELIEVERS IN THE DEATH OF MESSIAH

A wise old Jew once prophesied to the king that his favourite mistress would soon die. Sure enough, the woman died a short time later. The king was certain that the old man’s prophesy had brought about the woman’s death and he wanted revenge. He called in the Jew and said he would like to … Continue reading

OM TE DOEN WAT GEDOEN MOET WORD

Verlede week se tema, “Om te sien wat Hy vir ons wys”, het ons onder meer uitgebring by die twee name wat die Skrif gebruik vir die plek waar Avraham sy seun, Yietsgak, moes offer: MoriYah, wat beteken “Gesien deur Yah” en “Yahweh-Yir’eh”, wat beteken “Yahweh sal mense laat sien”. Wat opvallend is, is dat … Continue reading

IN DIE BEGIN

Die Torah leesprogram wat gebruik word om deur die eerste vyf boeke van die Skrif in een jaar te lees, begin vandag weer reg van voor af. Elke jaar se leesprogram word gewoonlik só opgestel dat dit eindig in die week waarin Yom Hashemini plaasvind – die fees wat ons die afgelope week gevier het. … Continue reading

DIE ROETE VAN GELOOF

Ek glo nie almal is bewus daarvan dat dit verlede Sondag (25 Januarie 2015) “World Leprosy Day” was nie. ‘n Mens sou nie dink dat melaatsheid as ‘n siekte vandag nog so ernstig is dat daar spesiaal ‘n dag van bewusmaking elke jaar daarvoor opsy gesit word nie. Die getal mense reg oor die wêreld … Continue reading

BERGE KÁN VERSIT WORD

Die Torah leesstuk van hierdie week (Lev 25:1- Lev 26:2) staan bekend as “Behar” wat beteken “in (of op of by) die berg”. Die berg wat hier ter sprake is, is die berg Sinai en Wayyikra (Levitikus) 25 wil die leser maar net daaraan herinner dat wat hier volg (soos Lev 26:46 dit stel), is … Continue reading

THE FOOLISH WAYS OF MEN

This time of the year is becoming more and more famous for all kinds of bold statements about science and religion, made by people who have turned their backs on belief and have made it their new life ambition to discredit and criticize those who have chosen to follow a Scriptural (or “Biblical”) lifestyle. I … Continue reading

KAN JY DIT SIEN?

Yahweh het aan ons die vermoë gegee om te kan sien – met die oë en met die hart. Om dinge fisies met die oë te sien is dikwels nodig om ook met die hart te kan sien en te kan verstaan. Die Hebreeuse woord “ra’ah” wat normaalweg met “sien” vertaal word, beteken onder meer: … Continue reading

LEWE IN SY SKADUWEE

Hierdie week se Torah leesstuk (Bemiedbar / Numeri 13-15) bestaan hoofsaaklik uit die beskrywing van die 12 verkenners wat in die Beloofde Land ingestuur is en die twee totaal uiteenlopende verslae waarmee hulle teruggekeer het – een verslag van die groep van tien wat gesê het dis ‘n land wat sy inwoners verteer, wat wemel … Continue reading

DIE NEGE EN NEGENTIG

‘n Paar jaar gelede is daar ‘n omstrede strokiesprent (“comic book”) reeks bekendgestel wat vandag nog die wêreld aan die praat het. Die naam van die reeks is “The 99”. Daar is deesdae ook ‘n film wat op die reeks gebaseer is met die titel “Wham! Bam! Islam!” Die skepper van die reeks is ‘n … Continue reading

AS DIE LEEU BRUL

By ‘n vorige geleentheid het ons oor die uitdaging van geloof gepraat en oor die sterk aanhang wat die ateïstiese verstaan van ons wêreld deesdae onder baie mense het. Daar is ook geen twyfel daaroor nie dat die persentasie mense in ons samelewing wat die ateïstiese standpunt aanhang, by die dag toeneem. Nadat ons ‘n … Continue reading

DIE UITDAGING VAN GELOOF

Op die webblad van News24 het iemand ‘n paar dae gelede ‘n artikel gepubliseer met die titel “Ask an Atheist”. Binne ‘n kwessie van 5 of 6 dae was daar byna 20 000 mense wat hierdie artikel gelees het en meer as 850 bydraes wat in reaksie van regoor die land ingestroom het. Talle lesers … Continue reading

TIEN WOORDE VAN AKSIE

Een van die vernaamste redes waarom die geloof van baie mense vandag in soveel opsigte verskil van die geloof van die Messias en sy onmiddellike volgelinge, is die feit dat daar in die vroeë Handelinge periode, en daarná, so ‘n groot beïnvloeding van die kant van die Griekse kultuur en die Griekse manier van dink … Continue reading

HY WAT ONS HARTE KEN

Die boek Handelinge is ‘n merkwaardige beskrywing van die wyse waarop die geloof wat ons vandag as ONS geloof beskou, begin vorm aanneem het en die harte en die lewens van doodgewone mense in beslag geneem, en verander het. Aan die begin van die boek ontmoet ‘n mens ‘n handjievol gelowiges wat, nog baie onseker … Continue reading

‘n Naam wat deesdae op baie Amerikaners se lippe is en al hoe meer bekend raak, en aangehang word, regoor die wêreld, is Sam Harris, wat in 2004 ‘n omstrede blitsverkoper met die titel, “The end of Faith” geskryf het en dit twee jaar later opgevolg met nog ‘n boek, getiteld, “Letter to a Christian … Continue reading

HOE WEET ONS YAHWEH LEEF?

In ons moderne tyd waarin daar al hoe meer mense begin inval by die populêre massa-koor daar buite wat ‘n “God is dood” lied probeer uitbulder, is die vraag op baie mense se lippe: Hoe weet ons dat Yahweh leef?  Hoe kan mens seker wees dat die Een wat die Skrif aan ons voorhou as … Continue reading

GELOOF IN DIE HEBREEUSE Y’SHUA 2

Ons gaan voort om die uitsprake en optrede van Y’shua, die Messias, te vergelyk met die Joodse en Hebreeuse verstaan van die Skrif (soos blyk uit sommige Talmoed aanhalings) … The mercy we to others show, Heaven will show to us. Luk 6:36 Wees dan barmhartig, soos julle Vader ook barmhartig is. He who wishes … Continue reading
