Octave of the Epiphany - Judeo Christian Values
I commend the articles by Dennis Prager: The case for Judeo-Christian values: I’ve enjoyed reading his posts and he has constantly made a case for the shared values of conservative Christians and Jews based on the Old Testament Scriptures. His arguments in these articles are compelling and ones to which I think we all can subscribe. I think you will find both articles interesting and refreshing.
Prager says, "As a Jew, by "biblical" I am referring to the Old Testament, but this should pose no problem to Christian readers, since this is the first part of their Bible as well. Indeed, as the greatest Jewish thinker, Maimonides, pointed out over 800 years ago, it is primarily Christians who have spread knowledge of the Jews' Bible to the human race"
On this Octave of the Epiphany, it does us well to remember the promises of God to the patriarchs, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: that all men would be blessed through their seed. This blessing has been realized through Christ Jesus in the form of the Light to those who sat in darkness. It has been carried to the world by the Body of Christ, the Church Militant, in the Word of God, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper, first by the Apostles, then by the evangelists throughout the ages, and now by us.
