Have you studied the tree of life in the garden and the tree of life in Proverbs 3 being getting wisdom and understanding of Torah?
Shalom, and thank you for your comment!
Yes, I have looked at that. Check out the article "Tree of Life" below, where I allude to just that.
Thanks! I'm fixing to read it now.
Hmmm.... I find this interesting: Having read this essay, I am now reading the first aliyah for Parashah "Vayera" and see this symbolism: "Let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and REST YOURSELVES UNDER THE TREE" (B'resheit 18:4). (Sorry to use the CAPS, but I didn't have a bold option). Anyway, to borrow a phrase from the church, but we could say "rest at the foot of the cross". Another foreshadowing?
I'm not a fan of the "cross" (personally), but I do get what you mean by resting at the foot of the tree (stake). And yes, I believe it is quite possibly an allusion to Yeshua. Remember, not a single verse in the Torah is there by accident.
Shalom J A Brown,
I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Pre-Sinaitic Torah”.
It is something I have believed in my heart, but I do not have the writing skills that you have.
Therefore, I will pass this link on to my loved ones.
I also want to thank you for the PDF “Shem Qadosh Version” of Scripture.
It is perfect for ready the weekly Torah portions.
May Mar Yah bless you and your family!
Thank you for your words! I am glad this article edified you! I appreciate the share, as well.
And you are quite welcome for the SQV. I will be updating the SQV .pdf document that is available for free download soon, and it will have a number of useful updates in it. Thank you.
