What is a Lad Bible, and what does it mean?
The Lad Bible is a collection of books written by a group of rabbis in the early 20th century, and published by the Ladder Foundation.
The books are considered to be part of the tradition of Torah, Judaism’s ancient system of spiritual teaching.
The Lad bible, however, was published in 1876, a few years after the Holocaust, and was an attempt to counter Jewish persecution of the Jews.
In the book, Rabbi Yehuda Luria of Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Synagogue explains that the Jews are called “the people of the light” and they are the “children of the nations.”
Luria explains that Jews have been in the world for millions of years and “were once a great people.
They are a race of men who came out of the land of Egypt and conquered the world.
They were a people who went out to the East and came back to Egypt.”
Luria explains:”There were people of Israel before the coming of the Gentiles, and they were not of the people of light.
The Gentiles came to us from the East, and we were called the people.
We came out from the land [of] Egypt.
We were the people, the people that came out to our land.”
Lurian states that the Gentile people, or the people who came from the lands of Egypt, were the “great nations.”
“Then the great nations came to the great city of Jerusalem and they came from a great place called Egypt.
The great city was called Palestine, and the great land was called Judea.
Then the people came from Egypt to the city of Israel, and from there to Jerusalem.
The people of God came out out from Egypt and came to Palestine, the great people, who were the children of the nation.”
Then they came to Judah, the land, and to Jerusalem, the city, and were called Israelites.
Then they came out as a people to Judah and as a nation to Jerusalem and as kings and as priests and as prophets and as leaders, and as men, as sons of God.
And they were a nation which came out after the generations of the generations to the land which was before the generations.
“Lursa explains that Israelites were people who “took possession of Jerusalem.
“He continues:”Then God said to Moses, ‘Thou shalt not build Jerusalem; it shall be built by the people; they shall build it on the land I gave them.
And the people shall come out from Jerusalem and shall enter into the city and shall dwell therein.
And I will make the inhabitants of the city fruitful and multiply; I will bless the land and multiply its inhabitants; and the inhabitants shall worship me in the land.’
“Luria explains that God said:”I am God, and I will build Jerusalem.
And God said, ‘If I give them possession of it, I will let them go back and live in their homes.’
And the city shall be made desolate, and Jerusalem shall be destroyed.’
Then God destroyed Jerusalem.
Then God made a covenant with Israel, saying, ‘You shall not enter into any of the cities of Judah, Jerusalem, or Bethlehem, except I have given you a covenant from the LORD.’
And he made a firm covenant between them and he said to them, ‘The people shall go and worship Me in the city.’
“The Lad bible continues:”[The Israelites] came out into the land with the words, ‘I am the LORD, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I am God Almighty; I have created thee and thy seed.’
“The scripture continues:[…]
But the people said, “We will not worship the Lord, we will not be Abrahamic.
We will not obey Him.
We worship not the name of God, for He is not worthy of worship.
“And they did not obey the LORD.
And there was a famine, and there were the wickedness of the Philistines and the idolaters, the nations of the earth, to whom the LORD had not given a covenant of righteousness.
So the LORD said to Abraham, ‘Abraham, I have called you from among the children [of Israel] to serve as a helper to the Philistine and to the idolators.’
So Abraham came to Jerusalem; and Abraham worshiped before the LORD.”
Lurya concludes:”The people came out, and came out in the year of our Lord, the year in which Moses and Aaron went forth from Egypt, and when they had gone out from there, and returned to the LORD they did what the LORD commanded Moses and they did the things which Moses commanded Aaron.”
“The LORD said, `You have come from Egypt with a covenant, and you shall dwell with the Philists and the Phoenicians, and with the other nations that are in the region of the sea; and you will serve the LORD in your
