If you take away this … Continue reading

BETER AS SEUNS EN DOGTERS

Gen 12:1-3 En Yahweh het aan Avram gesê: Gaan jy (of meer korrek: “gaan, vir jouself” – “lech lechah”) uit jou land en uit jou familie en uit jou vader se huis, na die land wat Ek jou sal wys. En Ek sal jou ‘n groot nasie maak en jou seën en jou naam so … Continue reading

AS HY SEËN, KAN GEEN MENS DIT KEER NIE

Bielám, wat soms ook Bileam of Balaam genoem word, is een van die mees misterieuse karakters in die Skrif. Hy was nie deel van die volk van Israel nie (sy naam beteken letterlik: “nie deel van die volk nie”) en dit blyk dat hy van ʼn plek met die naam Petor in die streek van … Continue reading

GESEËNDES VAN YAHWEH

In die Skrif word daar gereeld verwys na een mens, of ‘n groep mense, in wie se lewe die hand van Yahweh só sigbaar was dat andere dit raakgesien het en daaroor begin praat het. ‘n Mens kan jou die gesprekke voorstel wat hieruit voortgespruit het: “Het jy gehoor van die Almagtige se planne met … Continue reading

ONBEKWAAM, MAAR GESEËND

Die verskoning van Mosheh teenoor Yahweh by die brandende doringbos, “Ek kan nie praat nie”, herinner ‘n mens aan die baie dinge wat ons as mense daagliks voel ons nie kan nie doen nie.
