in response to reader comment: Israel's Title Deed

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Sep 22, 2014 at 18:17

Genesis 15:18) [On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates,…].

One of the greater contentions of the land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is its description, essentially defining some form of boundary. In a decidedly American legal perspective, land is conveyed, either by a parole (oral) transfer or written documentation. In the Hebrew land conveyances (see the various discussions in the Torah), similar authentications of land ownership are described.

The map shown in Michael S.' offering is in fact what is known in American real estate transactions, an exhibit. But the typical evidence acceptable in court is the written documentation, as we have in the Bible. That we do not have an original manuscript in handwriting is no different in the validity than finding a record of the transaction in the court or county recorder. Guess where the transaction of the Eternal promise to Israel is recorded; and in what frame of mind does one dare to challenge that?

How does that have anything to do with the questions about ISIS/ISIL/IS? The land they are killing in and the land they have declared as the ultimate target is in reserve for the return of the remnant of the promise to Abraham.
