“Jewish Culture? & The Bible – 101”
Question: Does ‘One’ have to understand “Jewish Culture”, to understand the Bible…? “Yes” or “No”…? Please answer first…?
*** (Isaiah 28:13) But the Word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept; precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go; and fall backward [backslide]; and be broken; and snared; and taken.
*** (Jeremiah 22:9) Then they shall answer; “Because” they have ‘forsaken’ the covenant of the LORD their God; and ‘worshipped’ other [false] gods; and ‘served’ them.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = “DAILY” = to see if those things were so [or Not].

*** (2Corinthians 4:7) But we have this Treasure [Romans 8:9] in earthen [our human bodies] vessels; that the excellency of the [His Holy Spirit] Power; may be of God; and –> ‘NOT’ of us.
*** (John 7:38) The one who believes in Me [Jesus]; as the Scripture has said; will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(Joh 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the [Holy] Spirit; Whom those who were believing in Him [Jesus] were to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit was not yet present; because Jesus had not yet been glorified. [Acts 2:1-to-5 & Romans 8:9]
*** (John 16:13) Yet when the [Holy] Spirit of Truth comes: He will guide you into all Truth. For He will not speak on his own accord, but will speak whatever He hears and will declare to you the things that are to come.
(John 16:14) He will glorify Me [Jesus]; for He will take what is Mine and declare it to you.
(John 16:15) All that the Father [God] has is Mine [Jesus]. That is why I said, 'He will take what is Mine; and declare it to you.'
*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days come; says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a famine in the land; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water; but of = hearing = the Words of the LORD Jehovah [The Holy Word of GOD].

*** (Jeremiah 13:1-to-11) So says the LORD Jehovah to me, Go and buy for yourself a linen girdle, and put it on your loins, and do not put it in water.
(Jer 13:2) So I bought a girdle according to the Word of the LORD Jehovah, and put it on my loins.
(Jer 13:3) And the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to me a second time, saying,
(Jer 13:4) Take the girdle that you bought, which is on your loins, and arise. Go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock.
(Jer 13:5) So I went and hid it by Euphrates, as the LORD Jehovah commanded me.
(Jer 13:6) And it happened at the end of many days Jehovah said to me, Arise, go to Euphrates and take the girdle from there, which I commanded you to hide there.
(Jer 13:7) Then I went to Euphrates and dug, and took the girdle from the place where I had hidden it. And, behold, the girdle was rotted; it was not good for anything.
(Jer 13:8) Then the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to me, saying,
(Jer 13:9) So says the LORD Jehovah, In this way I will spoil the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.
(Jer 13:10) This evil people, who refuse to hear My Words, who walk in the stubbornness of their heart and walk after other gods to serve them and to worship them, shall even be like this girdle, which is good for nothing.
(Jer 13:11) For as the girdle holds fast to the loins of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me, says the LORD Jehovah; so that they might be to Me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory; but they would not hear.
What do these Bible verses say about “Jewish Culture”…? Please be extremely careful, when a New Bible teacher comes on the scene. He may know his Bible but… “Any Presentation Limiting or Negating the HOLY SPIRIT”… teaching ‘You’ must: “Always be Suspect.” Ultimately when we all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to… “Receive & Lose Rewards”… that “Teacher” will ‘Not’ step up and defend what he taught ‘You!’ The True Child of God will be “Personally Responsible”… for what they “Believed or Didn’t Believe!” Isn’t that So…?
(1Corinthians 3:11-to-15) After all, no one can lay any other foundation than the one that is already laid, and that is Jesus Christ.
(1Cor 3:12) Whether a person builds on this foundation with gold, silver, expensive stones, wood, hay, or straw,
(1Cor 3:13) the workmanship of each person will become evident, for the day will show what it is, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work.
(1Cor 3:14) If what a person has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If his work is burned up, he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved, but it will be like going through fire.
(Genesis 3:13) And Jehovah God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate.
*** (Genesis 3:17) And to Adam He said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it! The ground is cursed for your sake. In pain shall you eat of it all the days of your life.
This “Human ‘Blame’ Game”… can be seen through the Bible. Who is the one responsible for what ‘You’… “Know & Think & Believe”… about God and His Holy Word, “The Bible”…? Was it the “Serpent, or Eve or Adam”…? Absolutely… “NOT”…! It is… “You” and “You Alone”… are responsible for what ‘You’… “Know & Think & Believe”… about God and His Holy Word, “The Bible”…! Have ‘You’ read “Psalms 119:All” lately? Perhaps our focus should be on… “Knowing what GOD really wants us to Know”…? All is there in the Holy Word of God! Remember the Command… “Study… 2Timothy 2:15-16”… AND… “All Scripture… 2Timothy 4:13-to-19”…? What do ‘You’ suppose God gave us His Holy Word for…? Just to “Tickle our minds”… Or to Obediently: “Hide it in our Hearts”… so that we may “Live Out His Holy Word”…?
*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have; from him shall be taken away; even that which he has.

*** (Psalms 19:7-to-14) The Law of The LORD Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of The LORD Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise.
(Psa 19:8) The Precepts of The LORD Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the Commandments of The LORD Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes.
(Psa 19:9) The fear of The LORD Jehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of The LORD Jehovah are true and righteous altogether,
(Psa 19:10) more to be desired than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
(Psa 19:11) And Your servant is warned by them; in keeping them there is great reward.
(Psa 19:12) Who can understand his errors? Oh make me pure from secret faults;
(Psa 19:13) and keep Your servant back from presumptuous sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be upright, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.
(Psa 19:14) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O The LORD Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer.
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that “man shall Not live by bread alone; but by “Every” –> Word of God.” [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]

*** (2Peter 1:2-to-10) May grace and peace be yours in abundance through the full knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord!
(2Pe 1:3) His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the full knowledge of the One [God] Who called [John 6:44] us by His own glory and excellence.
(2Pe 1:4) Through these He has given us His precious and wonderful promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, seeing that you have escaped the corruption that is in the world caused by evil desires.
(2Pe 1:5) For this very reason, you must make every effort to supplement your faith with moral character, your moral character with knowledge,
(2Pe 1:6) your knowledge with self-control, your self-control with endurance, your endurance with godliness,
(2Pe 1:7) your godliness with brotherly kindness, and your brotherly kindness with love.
(2Pe 1:8) For if you possess these qualities, and if they continue to increase among you, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in attaining a full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2Pe 1:9) For the person who lacks these qualities is blind and shortsighted, and has forgotten the cleansing that he has received from his past sins.
(2Pe 1:10) So then, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election certain, for if you keep on doing this you will never fail.
