Genealogy: Do You Have an Isaiah in Your Family Tree?

Standard

Many people believe that Isaiah was the greatest prophet of biblical history. Also seen as Esaias, the name means “salvation of the Lord.” Isaiah’s prophecies will be forever tied to Jerusalem. He foresaw the destruction of Jerusalem and Judah but believed that a righteous remnant would persevere. Jesus is recorded (book of Luke) reading Isaiah (Esaias) writings. Perhaps it is Isaiah’s promise to Gentiles that they will participate in the spiritual inheritance of Israel that has today a strong Christian presence in Jerusalem.

Christianity & Judaism: Who Was Joseph?

Standard

There are many Josephs but two are quite prominent in biblical history. The first is Joseph the son of Jacob. (The twelve tribes of Israel are all the descendants of Jacob, whose name later became Israel.) Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him and sold him as a slave. You’ll find the story of Joseph’s time in Egypt in the book of Genesis (37, 39-50).

The other well-known Joseph was the husband of Mary, Mother of Jesus. This Joseph was a descendant of King David remembered today throughout the world in the Star of David. Like Jesus, Joseph was a carpenter. The name Joseph means, “may he add.”
