Hi MPLS Fitter
The issue of course is that the phrase 'qol Yisroel' ('all Israel') & 'qol Eretz' ('all the land' i.e. of Israel) is what is meant - not 'the whole
world' i.e. including the goyim (non Jews) and we all know how the 'good' Rebbe felt about gentiles.
Mostly in the earliest Christian communities (as with 2nd Temple Judaeism), the Hebrew word Eretz means 'land of Yisro'el' and not 'world' and
qol-Eretz Yisroel means 'the entire Land of Yisro'el' not 'the Whole World' - we see this issue come up in the socalled Book of Revelation where
'those who dwell upon the earth' actually means 'those who occupy the land of Yisro'el'
It seems when they translated ERETZ into Greek they wrote 'ho Kosmos', which is another thing altogether, so beware of the 'universality' of the
earliest Christianities in the 1st century - the audience and the texts produced were written BY Jews for other Jews and not for goyim - although
uncircumcised 'god fearers' were included as target audiences (in the synagogues the god fearers were kept behind a a barrier from the 'circumcised'
For a vestige of the racist-zionism inherent in early Christianiy, see 'Matt' chapter 15 : 12ff ('Lady, the Bar Enasha ('son of man') was sent ONLY to
the Lost Sheep of the Elect of the House of Yisro'el and anyway, since when would it be right to take the children's bread (i.e. Yisroelites/Judaeans)
out of their mouths and throw it away on the DOGS under the table ?')
In the 1st canonical gospel ('according to Matthew' whoever he was) story he was addressing a Syro Phoenecian gentile female (two strikes against her
as far as the good Rebbe was concerned). He had no intention of speaking to goyim, only 'the elect of the Lost Sheep of the House of Yisro'el' which
would include 'qol Yisro'el' i.e. those Jews who were 'scattered amongst the Goyim' in the Roman Empire and abroad (one of the duties of the 'Meshiaq'
was to 're-gather the Lost Sheep of the House of Yisro'el back to Eretz Yisro'el in the last Days...'
see the Book of the Prophet Hezekiel (c. 550 BCE)
Ezekiel 36:11; 25ff - "And I will deal with you better at the latter days that at the beginning - yea, I will take you from among the goyim (i.e.
gentiles) and re-gather you out of all the Nations (i.e. non Jews) and I will bring you into your own Land."
Proto Isaiah 35
In that Day a road will be there and a Highway;
it will be called the Holy Way.
The ritually unclean will not travel on it,
but it will be for the one who walks the path.
yea, the redeemed will walk upon it,
and the redeemed of YHWH will return to Zion
Yea they shall come with singing,
crowned with unending joy.
Trito Isaiah 57"14ff / Isaiah 62:1ff
14 And it will be said on that Day:
“Build up, build up, prepare the Highway
Remove the obstacles out of the way of My People.”
Pass through, pass through the gates!
Prepare the way for the people.
Build up, build up the highway!
Remove the stones.
Raise a banner for the Gentiles !
YHWH issues this Proclamation
to the ends of the land -
“Say to Daughter Zion, Behold, your Savior comes!
Trito Isaiah 60:4ff
“Lift up your eyes and look about you:
All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
to you the riches of the goyim (i.e. Gentiles / non Jews) will flow into you.
Herds of camels will cover your land,
young camels of Midian and Ephah.
And all from Sheba will come,
bearing gold and incense
and proclaiming the praise of YHWH
Yea, in that Day they will be accepted as offerings on my Altar,
Thus I shall adorn my glorious Temple.
The kings of the Gentiles shall serve you:
Your gates will always stand open,
They will never be shut, day or night,
so that people may bring you the wealth of the Goyim (i.e. Gentiles / non Jews) —
their captive Kings led in triumphal procession.
For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish;
it will be utterly ruined.
The sun will no more be your light by day,
nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,
for YHWH himself will be your everlasting light,
and your own clan god shall be the Cavod in it !
The Spirit of the Sovereign King is on me,
because YHWH has Anointed me
to proclaim good news to the Evionim.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners
to proclaim the Day of YHWH's favour
And to announce the Day of Vengeance of our clan god in Zion—
In that Day you will be called priests YHWH,
you will be named ministers of our clan god
You will feed on the wealth of the Goyim (i.e. gentiles / non Jews)
and with their riches you will bedeck yourselves.
Hear that uproar from the city,
hear that noise from the Temple !
It is the sound of YHWH
repaying his enemies all they deserve !
