This video is about paradoxes in the Bible and making babies. It is also about how habits can stop your spiritual growth. For example, whenever you see Jesus on the cross, do you mindlessly repeat some ceremony like a prayer or making the cross sign, or do you stop to think what Jesus did for us? We will then look at the very first commandment in Genesis “Make children and fill the earth” and discuss what it can mean, and why it is a paradox.
🔍 Join me and our numerous followers around the globe at the ☯️📜 The Zen of the Hebrew Bible 📜☯️ to look critically at the details hidden in the Bible stories we thought we were familiar with. Let’s discover the less known aspects and a spiritual way of reading the Bible.
Like in Buddhist Zen Koans, the spiritual power of the Hebrew Bible is often found in its ambiguous language, and paradoxes. It encourages YOU to put yourself into the interpretation. The more you read the more insight you get. Naturally, a lot of it is lost in translation. This deliberate ambiguity ensures the Bible remains relevant to anyone, anywhere. It’s as fresh today as it was 3000 years ago.
