The Biblical Land Titles
by Steven Shamrak
Christianity and Islam insist they have inherited the Jewish tradition and believe in the monotheistic G-d. All three religions include Torah (Old Testimonies) as the written word of G-d. It is considered a great sin to disobey or falsify the words of the Almighty! I would like to present for your perusal two biblical land titles:
“Sarah died in Kiriatharba [Hebron] …” “Avraham weighed-out for Ephron the silver that he spoke of in the hearing of the sons of Cheis, four hundred silver shekel, negotiable currency.” “This became Avraham's [possession] through a purchase before the eyes of the sons of Cheis...” (Genesis 23:2, 16, 18)
Abraham made sure the purchase of land at Hebron was recorded as a legal sale, not as a gift.
“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spoke unto Moses. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the Great Sea [Mediterranean sea] toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border.” (Joshua1:3, 4; Re: Deuteronomy 11:24)
“This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.” “Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; unto the Brook of Egypt, the Great Sea being the border thereof.” (Joshua15:20, 47)
Religious people believe that all that is written in the Torah by G-d is purposeful. Therefore, if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim you must accept the will of G-d and recognise the right of the Jewish people to live on all the land given to them by G-d. Otherwise, you have been living a life of self-deception or hypocrisy.
