4月23日:死而复生

上帝和以色列的独特的关系

以西结书 37:24-27

 “我的仆人大卫必作他们的王,众民必归一个牧人。他们必顺从我的典章,谨守遵行我的律例。他们必住在我赐给我仆人雅各的地上,就是你们列祖所住之地。他们和他们的子孙,并子孙的子孙,都永远住在那里。我的仆人大卫必作他们的王,直到永远。并且我要与他们立平安的约,作为永约。我也要将他们安置在本地,使他们的人数增多,又在他们中间设立我的圣所,直到永远。我的居所必在他们中间。我要作他们的神,他们要作我的子民。”

大卫的儿子,耶稣,成就了这个预言。上帝永存的和平之约是本乎恩,也因着信。耶稣将统治以色列和这个世界直到永远。

预言并宣告:上帝将成就祂对以色列的所有应许。

 

The Knesset Menorah, situated on the edge of the Rose Garden across from the Knesset building, is the work of the Jewish-English artist of German origin Benno Elkan (1877 – 1960). The Menorah is molded of bronze and resembles the menorah (7-branched candelabra) of the Temple, which has come to be a Jewish symbol. The sculpture is 4.30 meters high, 3.5 meters wide, and weighs 4 tons. The main theme of the work depicts the spiritual struggles of the Jewish people and it is engraved with the passage “Not by strength and not by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord who rules over all” (Zechariah 4, 6). The Menorah includes engravings of biblical figures and events from the tradition and history of the Jewish people. The engravings on the six side branches of the Menorah portray the fate of the Israeli people since it was exiled from its land, and the engravings on the center branch portray the people’s fate since the beginning of the return to the land up to the establishment of the State of Israel.
