Who is Abraham’s Seed, Pt. 1

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Abraham's Seed

God made promises to Abraham (Gen.12:1-3, 17:7) & his’ Descendant/The Seed‘ (Christ, the Messiah was coming from Abraham’s lineage), but the Jews stumbled on this (Isaiah 28:16, Rom. 9:33), they misinterpreted it & took it the blessings were just for all Abraham’s descendants in the flesh, Israelites. Sadly many Jews still believe that today!

In the Old Testament the Hebrew word H2233 Zera, = “seed” is a singular noun that can also mean offspring. Many modern bibles translate or change the Hebrew word “seed” as “descendants,” “children,”  (plural only). This makes it even more difficult to understand, altering the scriptures & the doctrine. To know if ‘seed’ has singular or plural meaning we need to read in context. In Greek there are distinct words for seed (spermati) & seeds (spermasin).

Who is Abraham’s Seed? Pt.2

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Abraham's Seed

Most pseudo-Christian sects & some denominations are based in misunderstandings of the Old Testament. In the New Testament we found the revelation of many things that were just shadows of Christ or a mystery in the Old Testament. People can find salvation & the simplicity of Christ by reading the New Testament alone, but that won’t happen by reading the Old Testament by itself.

Reformed/Calvinist theologians & Catholics teach the church replaces ‘Israel‘ (Replacement Theology), but that’s NOT what the New Testament teaches, please check in that link the 73 times the word ‘Israel’ is used int he NT.

Also with some variations the Church of God & many of their splinters like Israelite Church of God (a.k.a Black Hebrew Israelites) & Hebrew Roots movement, teach another replacement theology as well, & it’s that Christians are or become ‘Israelites’.

These sects also teach Jesus only came to save the house of Israel by twisting Matt.15:24, & say for that reason we believers have to be Israel, otherwise we are not saved. But in the original Greek there is no word ‘only‘ neither the word ‘save‘:

    δὲ     ἀποκριθεὶς   εἶπεν      Οὐκ  ἀπεστάλην εἰ   μὴ   εἰς τὰ  πρόβατα τὰ ἀπολωλότα      οἴκου               Ἰσραήλ” –
The  but   answering    [He] said,   not   I was sent,     if   not    to    the     sheep         –      being lost      of  [the] house  [of] Israel. (check here or here).
