上帝和以色列的獨特的關係

以西結書37:24-27

 「我的僕人大衛必作他們的王,眾民必歸一個牧人。他們必順從我的典章,謹守遵行我的律例。他們必住在我賜給我僕人雅各的地上,就是你們列祖所住之地。他們和他們的子孫,並子孫的子孫,都永遠住在那裡。我的僕人大衛必作他們的王,直到永遠。並且我要與他們立平安的約,作為永約。我也要將他們安置在本地,使他們的人數增多,又在他們中間設立我的聖所,直到永遠。我的居所必在他們中間。我要作他們的神,他們要作我的子民。」

 

大衛的兒子,耶穌,成就了這個預言。上帝永存的和平之約是本乎恩,也因著信。耶穌將統治以色列和這個世界直到永遠。

 

預言並宣告:上帝將成就祂對以色列的所有應許。

 

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.
