That word YATSAB - Stand in Hebrew and this amazing article at https://www.chabad.orgWhat is the Meaning of the Name "Jew"? By Rochel Chein
The term "Jew" is derived from the name of Jacob's fourth son, Judah--Yehudah, in the Hebrew—and may have originally applied only to Judah's descendents, who comprised one of the twelve tribes of Israel. On his deathbed, Jacob assigned Judah the role of leader and king—a prophesy that was fulfilled in 869 BCE when all twelve tribes submitted to the reign of King David of the tribe of Judah.
After the death of David's son, King Solomon, a civil dispute split the twelve tribes of Israel into two kingdoms: the Kingdom of Judah in the south, which included the tribes of Judah and Benjamin (and some Levites and priests) and was centered around the capital Jerusalem and the Holy Temple; and the northern Kingdom of Israel, which included the other ten tribes.
In the 5th century BCE, the Kingdom of Israel was conquered by Assyrian King Sennaherib, and the ten tribes were exiled and lost. The only remaining Israelites were the residents of the Kingdom of Judah, and the term "Yehudi" or "Jew" came to refer to all the Israelites, regardless of their tribal ancestry.
But there is also a deeper meaning to the name "Jew. The first individual to be called a Jew (Yehudi) in the Scriptures was Mordecai, of Purim fame. "There was a man, a Yehudi, in Shushan the capital, whose name was Mordecai . . . a Yemini" (Esther 2:5). The Talmud (Tractate Megillah 12b) asks on this: "He is called a Yehudi, implying that he descended from Judah; he then is called Yemini, implying that he is a Benjaminite!" Rabbi Jochanan responds: "He was a Benjaminite. Yet he was called a Yehudi because he rejected idolatry—and anyone who rejects idolatry is called a Yehudi."
The commentaries explain that the name Yehudah shares the same root as the Hebrew word hoda'ah, which means acknowledgement or submission. One who acknowledges G‑d's existence and submits to His authority—to the extent that he is willing to sacrifice his life for the sanctification of His name—he is called a Yehudi.
Hence Abraham is commonly referred to as "The First Jew." As the first person to use his own cognitive abilities to discover and recognize the one G‑d, reject the idolatrous ways of his ancestors and contemporaries, actively publicized the truth of G‑d and was prepared to give his very life for these goals—Abraham epitomized "Jewishness" many centuries before the term came into common useBy Rochel Chein
This is God asked me to step back a little bit. Our study of Ephesians 6 because you might be familiar with the first word that actually says before you put on the belt of truth and stand therefore and so God kind of showed me in prayer this morning go back in and study that concept of standing which I'm sure like me you may have heard a sermon or two on Ephesians 6 and often they talk about how important it is to stand with this idea of holding your ground and so I decided to look at that in Hebrew and what I found was an I'd seen this before but I don't know that ever sought is the treasure that I see it today is that word stand when you look at it in Hebrew. If you would allow my picture translation of the three pictures that are involved which are basically the Hebrew letter. Yet the Hebrew letters attic and the Hebrew letter bet so again to just describe what those pictures are. It's like the hand of God coming down and holding this righteous person who is looking like a tree that's always looking for the light, and there looking up at the kingdom met that bet. So the unit is God's hand. The Zajac is righteousness and the be at the bet is essentially the kingdom. When you think about God's house this is that bet.
And so I'm just amazed this standard thinking about trauma, stand there holding essentially God's hand and looking up at the kingdom. I miss just you can be in a safer place right step is to talk about yesterday that if this is the idea of prayer is all about. This is God reaching down and holding your hand and so a couple other things I wanted to share with you is that when I pray every morning might in our daily prayer which you can find out my website and a lot of places where I've said it's a greatest advice I can give anybody is to spend some time in prayer.
Early morning, and one of the things God gave me some healing actually from some of the sexual trauma that was early on in my life that led to all sorts of lust problems that I experienced throughout life and at one point in time as Jesus is phenomenally generous and phenomenally loving as we are walking through some of that healing. He said here take my hand. Well I'm sure. Well, I'm not sure I I was shocked because when I took his hand. All of a sudden I realized while there is a male mark in that hand and as I took a hold of his hand. I was immediately covered in this blog and it was this remarkable feeling of like oh my goodness in average remembering the woman caught in adultery right when Jesus was standing there with her.
He said woman where your accusers will if you're taking Jesus hand you see, you automatically get that nail scarred hands and you get the blood and is your covered in his blood, you are that righteous person right this picture this person standing as your covered in this blood you're standing there right looking up into the kingdom you heart can give up any ground because you have no accusers your your exactly where God wants you to be.
It's where Stephen was standing right as he was being stoned. He had a hold of Jesus hand. He was in complete righteousness. And he laid down his life in order to bring the kingdom okay out the U it, which is also a word in Hebrew has everything to do with being a Jew and so I found this article and how God's website.
I love to go to all the time and this is what is the meaning of being a Jew and it just shocked me as I read this and think about that. This whole idea. When you hear the word used or when you hear the word Israel that almost words start with the unit which is this hand of God coming down okay so as I read this. Just think about this letter yet that's in the front of obviously Jesus's name. It's in the front of Jacob's name.
It's in the front front of Israel. So the term Jew is derived from the name of Jacob's force on Judah you to in Hebrew and may have originally applied not only to Judah's descendents who comprise one of the 12 tribes of Israel. On his deathbed Jacob assigned Judah. The role of leader and King, a prophecy that was fulfilled in 869 BCE when all the 12 tribes submitted to the reign of King David of the tribe of Judah, but there is also a deeper meaning to the named you the first individual to be called a Jew, you'd is the Scriptures was Mordecai of current fame as Esther chapter 2 verse five. The Talmud McGill at 12 be asked on this. He is called a Jew, implying that he descended from Judah.
He was a Benjamite, yet he was called a Jew because he rejected idolatry and anyone who rejects idolatry is called a Jew, the commentaries explained that the name Judah shares the same root as the Hebrew word Hada which means acknowledgment or submission one who acknowledges God's existence and submits to his authority. To the extent that he is willing to sacrifice his life for the sanctification of God's name. He is called a Jew, hence Abraham is commonly referred to as the first. You is the first person to use his own cognitive abilities to discover and recognize one God reject idolatrous ways of his ancestors and contemporaries and actively publicize the truth of God and was prepared to give his very life for these goals. Abraham epitomizes Jewishness just many centuries before the term came into common use. I'm sure you can see with me that this unit in the front of this is given the something worth dying for right that to really stand our ground, holding Jesus's hand under his blood completely righteous and willing to lay down our life right take up my cross and follow me if if the whole idea as he will. Who gives up his life will gain I and here we are in this position daily as we going toward daily prayer how finances reach up grab Jesus hand be covered in his righteousness, look for his kingdom lay down your life and be ready to stand
