On this episode of Real Israel Talk Radio – Season 2, Episode 74, Program Part 10 we will continue with our detailed look into 1 Corinthians chapter 13 – “The Love Chapter” of the New Covenant. In this study on biblical love, we will recap the episodes leading up where we are now and prepare for a closer look into Genesis 2:25 and Genesis 3:1.
Today, we will learn from 1 Corinthians 13:5 how both of these passages of Hebrew scripture — Genesis 2:25 and Genesis 3:1 point us directly to Yeshua’s statement that we are to be “Wise as Serpents and Innocent as Doves.” In turn, understanding this will help us to also understand Paul’s statement in 1 Corinthians 13:5 that Divine giving love is NOT unbecoming or unseemly, a statement that we would do well to correctly understand to mean that Divine giving love is NOT a love based on earthly wisdom below but on heavenly wisdom from above. It’s all in the Hebrew and it’s a model for us to emulate on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Join us for a candid look into the “mountains” and “valleys” of love along with the joys and the pitfalls of what we need to look for so that we don’t become mired down in behaviors that are unbecoming and unseemly. We’ll get an introduction into four Hebrew words that are often misunderstood and/or mistranslated from Hebrew into English:
- (arah), with a meaning of naked, exposed, and uncovered.
- (ervah), which in Hebrew means something that is unbecoming and unseemly.
- (ahram/ahrum), which means cunning, crafty, shrewd, prudent, brilliant, very wise.
- (bosh/boosha), which means shamefulness, disappointment, and dishonor.
This is our continuing study in Paul’s “Love Chapter” of 1 Corinthians 13 and Defining Biblical Love: to be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” This is PART 10, Episode 74 in our Real Israel Talk Radio Podcasts.
