Beauty around us …
Talking comes by nature, but it needs a good deal of training to learn to be quiet; yet regard for truth should put a bit into every honest man’s mouth and a bridle upon every good woman’s tongue.— Charles Spurgeon

Die naam van hierdie week se Parashah (“Beshalag” – wat gaan oor die gedeelte van Gen 13:17 tot Gen 17:16) beteken “Toe hy laat gaan het”. Dit verwys natuurlik na Farao wat, uiteindelik, ná 10 plae en baie smart vir homself en sy mense, onder andere die dood van al die eersgeborenes, die volk laat … Continue reading
A few weeks ago, when speaking about the theme, “A Question of Belief”, we looked at some of the tough questions in the book of Bereshit (Genesis) and how these questions may help us in our own walk with Yahweh. Questions like “Adam, where are you?” and “Am I my brother’s keeper?” At that time … Continue reading
This week’s Parashah (Gen 25:19 – 28:9) is loaded with a number of very powerful and intriguing themes. Yitzchak (Isaac) and Rivkah (Rebecca) are unable to bring forth children for a period of close to 20 years. When Rivkah eventually becomes pregnant she is told that she carries two nations in her womb. When the … Continue reading
In die boekie “Who are we and what do we believe?” (ŉ poging om aan die hand van die Skrif ŉ uiteensetting te gee van ons eie geloofsoortuigings) word daar ŉ hele aantal vrae gevra. In sy geheel fokus die hele boekie op 5 vrae, naamlik (1) Wie is Yahweh? (2) Wat het Yahweh in … Continue reading
Daar is altesaam 291 vrae wat gestel word in die Woord en Getuienis weergawe van die Torah (slegs die eerste vyf boeke van die Skrif). Die volume (of die grootte) van die Torah is ongeveer gelykstaande aan ‘n boek van 200 tot 230 bladsye. Die Torah is nie ‘n roman of ‘n drama met ‘n … Continue reading

Die Torah leesstuk van hierdie week sluit onder meer in die gedeelte in Gen 37 waar Josef se broers die groot onreg gepleeg het deur hulle broer, Josef, in ‘n put te gooi en later aan handelaars te verkoop en vir hulle pa te lieg, deur te sê dat hy deur ‘n wilde dier verskeur … Continue reading
Om vrae te vra is ‘n wesenlike deel van menswees. ‘n Mens sien dit by ‘n klein kindjie wat pas geleer het om te praat. As hy eers begin volsinne praat, kan jy verseker wees sy gebabbel gaan 90 persent uit vrae bestaan! Dis immers deur vrae te vra, dat hy antwoorde kry en meer … Continue reading
