Torah Pearls – Season 2 – Nitzavim

“For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. – Deuteronomy 30:11-14

    I am wondering how a teacher of Torah could emphasize on physical offspring of Abraham as the “chosen” one and ignore Ex12:49, Lev19:34 and forego Gen5:3 in context too. If the physical offspring would count, then Ishmael, Zimran, Yoqshan, Medan, Midyan, Yishbaq, Shuwah. and Essau would count too. But, all those didn’t listen to the creator, in short didn’t have the Seed of the woman of Gen3:15 in them but the seed of the serpent. The definition of Israel: the people who have the seed of the woman which is the Word of the creator in their heart. Logically, the god of Cain, Ishmael and Essau is the remaining other seed aka word of the serpent.
    Furthermore, how can he read Deu29:20 “… blot out his name from under the heavens.” That is a curse!! And, then casually refer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as HaShem = blotting out God’s name and therefore, biblically speaking, cursing the creator.
    Last but not least, instead of trying to twist Paul’s writing, he should read 2Peter3:16 and ponder about it.
    Shalom Alecheim
