So apparently, it's #WorldLionDay, which provides me with the ideal moment for starting a thread on the so-called Lion of #Judah.
The tribe of Judah is one of the twelve tribes of #Israel, who all descended from the 12 sons of the patriarch Jacob, as was stated in both the Old and the New Testament. Each of these tribes has a specific symbol, as shown below in an Israeli mosaic in a street of #Jerusalem.
It is written in the New #Testament: "And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel." [Revelations 21:12-13]

Deeper meanings of the #HolyBible written in God’s language: #Hebrew. Each #Christian should learn & teach our children this truth. It’s more amazing than any other thing(s) part of the indoctrination within the public system.

This is OUR heritage. Judeo-Christian Heritage.
Nothing new under the sun. The study of the Holy Bible isn’t new however, it’s not a common thing for Christians today to study on a multi-dimensional level unless you’re family with Chuck Missler - who really brings it home for those of us who were stuck in science.
And why isn’t the term “Judeo -Christian” used so much anymore? OT+NT. Grafting.

Hebrew language relays His Message multi-dimensional format - b/c He is multi-dimensional, multiple dimensions exist and have been proved via quantum equations & CERN (one good thing about CERN)

#Zionism
It is where left and & right, black, white & brown, Sephardi & Ashkenazi, religious & secular, intersect, come together in defense of our self preservation, to celebrate our Judaism in whatever form it takes, to struggle to create a better world for ourselves & for others,...(2
...while protecting those within our community not of the tribe.
As such, Zionism is the most progressive movement in a repressive and violent region.
Zionism knows from experience we do not live in a perfect world. It is a world that still seeks to victimize us.

The #Hebrew word for "independence" comes from a root for "strength," by way of the word "bone."
Let me explain. ʕṢM is the root of "strength, power, superpower, enormous," and also Etsem, "bone." I guess that meaning 1/2
#language #etymology #YomHaatzmaut
#IndependenceDay
comes from the strength of bones.
This word also developed the meaning of "essence, self," bc bones are the essense of the body (as in, "in my bones", be'Atsmi = "myself"). Then came the word atsma'UT, "independence," i.e., reliance on oneself. 2/2

(I wrote this in advance yesterday and now see @HebreWords has also tweeted about this today. Great tweet as well: )

The menōrah is a characteristic symbol of #Judaism. The six-branched lamp stand with a seventh central lamp was reportedly already present when the Israelites crossed into Samaria (#Canaan) and pitched their tabernacle tent in the town of Shiloh during the late 2nd millennium BC.
The #Hebrew name menōrah is related to the word נור (nōr), meaning light, made feminine (by means of the post-fixed ה) and prefixed with the particle מ, which denotes a noun of place. It literally means lamps-stand and is closely connected to the #Arabic word منار (manār).
In Exodus 25:31-32, God reveals the design of the menōrah to Moses: "Make a lamp stand of pure gold. (...) Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lamp stand; three on one side and three on the other." It was to light the tabernacle tent and the Temple of Jerusalem.

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

<The language of ancient #Tayma (mod. Saudi Arabia)> 1) mannū samiʿ li-ṣalm lā tawaya ‘whosoever heeds Ṣalm shall not perish’. This prayer is carved a number of times on stone around the oasis of Taymāʾ, in N. Saudi Arabia, in a long lost script and language called Taymanitic.
2) Its alphabet consists of 26 glyphs, and is related to, but not a descendant of, the Musnad script of Ancient Yemen. The language remains poorly understood. It nevertheless shares some interesting similarities with #Hebrew and other Northwest Semitic languages. Pic: WTay 20
3) Before we get to the language, let’s talk about what these texts say. Most appear to be graffiti, some left by soldiers during their military service. The inscriptions express devotion to a single god, named Ṣalm, literally ‘image’, 'effigy', = Arabic ṣanam. Pic: Esk 288
