The Aramaic name of God, tradition vs. scripture, and Elijah on Mount Carmel.
View this email in your browser

In this brand-new episode of Hebrew Voices, The Aramaic Name of God, I discuss a cache of papyri written by a garrison of Jewish soldiers on the southern border of Egypt in the 5th century BCE. Hebrew University Professor Emeritus Bezalel Porten explains how these Jews arrived in Egypt as mercenaries in the time of King Menasheh, offered sacrifices at their own local Temple, and called on the name of the God of Israel. Mark wrote: “Major find here. Such a great time to be alive! Nehemia always brings quality research and insight--an honest scholar indeed! Thank you, Nehemia.”

In this week's Prophet Pearls, Ki Tisa (1 Kings 18:1-39), we discuss Elijah's encounter with the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel and  Hebrew word-plays jump off the page and demand attention. Daniel wrote: “This is my new all-time favorite prophet pearls!”

In this week's Original Torah Pearls, Ki Tisa (Exodus 30:11-34:35), we begin with a passionate discussion on tradition vs. scripture, then on to who the golden calf was supposed to represent, and what we can learn from God appearing to Moses. A transcript of this episode has been uploaded to the webpage to assist your study. If you find these transcripts to be of value, please consider supporting our efforts to transcribe the teachings on Sprinkler wrote: “WOW! This Torah Pearls is 'PACKED' full. Definitely going to require listening again.”
