Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 7 - Evening

"So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and
Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran.
 He took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they
had accumulated and the people they had acquired
in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan,
 and they arrived there.

 Abram traveled through the land as far as the site
of the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time
the Canaaniteswere in the land.
 The Lord appeared
to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord,
 who had appeared to him.

From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the
west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar
to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.

Then Abram set out and continued toward the Negev.

Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram
went down to Egypt to live there for a while
because the famine was severe."

- Genesis 12:4-10

Abram Moves into and Through the Land    

Abram left Haran and moved with his wife, nephew and his servants along with their flocks and possessions into the land of Canaan. Most likely Abram traveled the main trade route from Haran into Damascus and from there they moved through the Huleh Valley north of the Sea of Galilee and into the Jezreel Valley. From there they made their way to stay at Shechem which was the site of the great tree of Moreh (possibly an oak tree). “Moreh” means “teacher” which would indicate that this was a site for receiving instruction or revelation, and a place of worship.

It was here at the great tree of Moreh in Shechem that the Lord again appeared to Abram, possibly like he had in Ur when Abram received the call to leave as described by Stephen in Acts 7:2 where it says, "The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Harran." Now that Abram has arrived and is in Shechem, the heart of the land, the Lord tells him, "To your offspring I will give this land." It is interesting to note that the promise of the possessing the land was not given to Abram, but to his offspring. Abram was obeying God and serving those who would follow. This was the first mention of "the land" being part of the promise.

Abram moved on from Shechem to the hills between Bethel and Ai to build another altar. From there Abram continued south into the Negev to graze his flocks. A season of normal rainfall, though little, would be enough in the Negev to produce vegetation for grazing. The year Abram arrived there was too little rain, so the famine forced him to move on into Egypt for the survival of his flocks.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"God hath in Himself all power to defend you, all wisdom to direct you, all mercy to
pardon you, all grace to
enrich you, all righteousness to clothe you, all goodness
to supply you, and all happiness to crown you."
- Thomas Brooks
Something to Ponder??

Early Latin translations of the Greek New Testament were made since Latin was the language of the Roman Empire in the West. Damasus, the bishop of the church in Rome (366-385 AD), wanted to separate from the Greek speaking church in the East and make the Western church completely Latin. To do this he needed an updated, accurate translation of the Greek New Testament into Latin so that the Western church could move on. One of the great Latin scholars of the day was Eusebius Hieronymus Sophronius (or, Jerome) served Bishop Damasus as a secretary. In 382  Jerome began making an updated and correct translation of the Greek scriptures into Latin. Jerome left Rome and moved to a monastery that was in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem to focus on his work of translation. He finished the Latin translation in 405 and included in it a translation of the Hebrew Old Testament. This Latin Vulgate became the standard text for the Latin, or Western church, even until Latin was a dead language. Even then the church of the Middle Ages forbid the Bible to be translated into any other language in spite the fact that the most believers could never read or understand the Bible.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I listen to the right people? Do I know what advice is wisdom and what is not?
I will take time to discern between wise words and seductive words.
  "Say to wisdom,
'You are my sister,'

    and call understanding
your kinsman;
they will keep you from
the adulteress,

    from the wayward wife
with her seductive words."
- Proverbs 7:4-5

This is a Canaanite temple (right) with a large circular altar (left) in Megiddo. This was in use from 3000-1000 BC. Two small circular stone bases that supported pillars in the temple can be seen on the ground inside the temple.

There is no archaeological support, in fact, archaeology shows the tombs of this area were old in Jesus' day. The Crusaders used it as a horse stable. (click on image for larger size)
