Read the Book of the Beginnings - of the Promise to Abraham

Reader comment on item: One Cheer for Obama's Arab-Israeli Policy
in response to reader comment: Read the book of exodus

Before reading the Exodus, read the Genesis account where Abram, born in the land of Ur, was led by his LORD Almighty God to the land of promise, then known as Canaan. Mount Moriah, the place where Isaac was offered by Abraham for a sacrifice (but a ram was substituted), is the very same place where the Mount is now, in Israel, the land of the promise.

The Exodus is a return to the land of the promise, in the same vein that Israel returning to the land from the Diaspora. Read Ezekiel, Ch 37, 38, and 39, to understand the culmination of why Israel has been returned to the land, in spite of all the Arab and world opposition. From here, we read of the attempts to displace Israel once again, only to find the nations are collected for their final judgment. Israel will remain in the land according to the promise, at the expense of all who tried and failed to 'wipe Israel off the face of the earth.'
