    Fifty-three-year-old Danny Heinrich of Annandale admitted in court Tuesday that he kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed Jacob Wetterling on Oct. 22, 1989. The admission is finally bringing answers to what happened to the 11-year-old boy almost 27 years ago, whose remains were found in Stearns County last week after Heinrich led investigators to the site. “Danny Heinrich is no longer a person of interest,” U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger said after the court hearing. “He is the confessed murderer of Jacob Wetterling, and nearly 27 years after he committed this heinous crime, he has been brought to justice. And...
  • Jacob Becomes Israel...miracle nation pt 12

    All of Jacob’s children except one, were born in Padan Aram, (Iraq) where he toiled for Laban for fourteen years. For fourteen years Laban had experienced the blessing of Genesis 12:3, for the whole time Jacob worked for him, he was blessed, so also his flocks and grazing lands. But in this foreign land, Jacob sensed a change, a shift in mood among Laban and his sons. Jacob and his growing family are suddenly becoming suspect, and there is danger in the air. And he heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our...

    And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother’s brother. And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God...
  • By Faith Isaac Blessed Jacob and Esau...miracle nation pt 9

    By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.(Hebrews 11:20)The next part of the story of Jacob concerns the time when Isaac passed on the Patriarchal blessing. Isaac fully intended to pass it on to his favorite son, Esau, the outdoorsman,hunter, and profane bigamist who broke his parents heart by marrying two pagans! And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.(Genesis 26:34-35)Isaac was old, infirm and blind, when...
  • Jacob Have I Loved...miracle nation pt 8

    I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the Lord: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.(Malachi 1:2-3)The book of Genesis draws attention to the life of third Patriarch, Jacob, the son of Isaac and the twin of Esau. His life is told in several chapters in Genesis, and is of extreme significance to all of the world and to the plans and purposes of God. First of all, Genesis recounts the...

    Dëvar Torah – Parashath Va-Yétzé' (Genesis XXVII, 10 -- XXXII, 3)Our parasha tells the story of Ya'aqov's ("Jacob's") sojourn with his uncle and father-in-law, Lavan. As we read at the end of last week's parasha (XXVII, 42 -- XXVIII, 9), Rivqa ("Rebecca") persuaded Ya'aqov to flee to her brother in Charan both to escape from the wrath of his brother 'Esav and to find himself a proper wife. Just as Avraham had opposed the marriage of Yitzchaq to any daughter of the depraved Canaanites (XXIV, 3), so too did Rivqa consider any such prospect repugnant.When Ya'aqov arrived in Charan,...

  • The Latest Challenge to the Bible's Accuracy: Abraham's Anachronistic Camels?

    02/16/2014 3:48:28 PM PST · by daniel1212 · 33 replies ^ | February 14, 2014 | Gordon Govier
    Two researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) studied the bones of camels found in an area of ancient copper mines in the Aravah Valley, south of the Dead Sea. Using radiocarbon dating and other techniques, they determined that camels were first used in the mining operations near the end of the 10th century BC. They state that this is the first evidence of domesticated camels in ancient Israel. This would be almost 1,000 years later than the time of the patriarchs, when camels first appear in the Bible. Their study was quickly used to claim that the Bible was written...
  • Camel bones suggest error in Bible, archaeologists say

    Fox ^ | 1/5/14
    Archaeologists from Israel’s top university have used radiocarbon dating to pinpoint the arrival of domestic camels in the Middle East -- and they say the science directly contradicts the Bible’s version of events. Camels are mentioned as pack animals in the biblical stories of Abraham, Joseph and Jacob, Old Testament stories that historians peg to between 2000 and 1500 BC. But Erez Ben-Yosef and Lidar Sapir-Hen of Tel Aviv University's Department of Archaeology and Near Eastern Cultures say camels weren’t domesticated in Israel until centuries later, more like 900 BC. “In addition to challenging the Bible's historicity, this anachronism is...

While the tomb—located near Kibbutz Eyal, just off Route 6—is not one of the most popular tombs of forefathers, it is frequented on a more or less daily basis by Jews. …

  • PA Uses Archaeology ‘To Rewrite History of Palestine’

    The Palestinian Authority is renewing an archaeology dig in Shechem, which the Bible records was bought by Jacob (Yaakov). The director of the PA's Department of Antiquities, Hamdan Taha, says the dig will help in “writing or rewriting the history of Palestine.” Muslim clerics often have rewritten the Bible, claiming that the “binding of Isaac (Yitzchak)" actually refers to Ishmael. Clerics in the Palestinian Authority and the entire Muslim world also have frequently argued that the Holy Temples never existed and that Rachel's Tomb at Bethlehem actually is an ancient Muslim holy site. Shechem appears to be next in line....

GENESIS 32:28-31 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast revailed.

    In chapter 46 of Genesis, Jacob and the rest of the 70 family members set out to reunite with Joseph (who is now vice-regent of Egpyt). Verse 28 tells us Jacob "sent Judah before him to Joseph, to point out the way before him to Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen." As I finished the verse I wondered why Jacob chose Judah -- who was the fourth oldest son -- and not Reuben, the eldest. In that culture it was virtually always the first born who had honors such as that placed on him. I believe the...

    One surefire way to avert a nuclear holocaust. If you were a Jew in Europe in 1941, and you actually knew that Hitler was developing the means to carry out his threat to exterminate the Jews, what would you do? Dismiss the danger as overstated? Try to arouse the nations of the world to stop him? Or take upon yourself to employ every means possible -- both physically and spiritually -- to avert the catastrophe? If you are a Jew in 2007, and you actually know that Ahmadinejad is developing the means to carry out his threat to exterminate the...
