Tribes of Israel
Writing a book
So I must confess, I thought I could write a book in a few months dealing with my research on the tribes of Israel in the Bible. Little did I know it might be an extensive research project to find out the truth first and then extract what I can with the best of my knowledge to do this book. I have learned that the Kingdom Version is not the original book written in English. Also, I have learn that marketing for book will have to take time and maybe a few workshops. I have my work cut out this summer.
I am fortunate enough to have people that have already embark on this subject matter and can maybe cut down on my time in researching this matter. I learned a lot of interesting views and many that makes sense that are not considered popular views but with common sense it is the truth. I just hope that I can bring a clear concept to enlighten everyone without going into small details that can be controversial.
Making sure it's according to the Word
Many revisions of the Bible has cause me to wonder what has been lost in translating. When I read a book stating that there were rules to go by when translating it made me wonder what those rules were and why were they being implemented. Nothing should hinder your view of truth. Many of the writers decided to leave out words and/or alter views based on what they believed instead of what they knew was actually being stated in the original text. Anybody that wants to write according to the Bible to me should seriously consider all commentaries. I believe that's the only way to piece together the truth since some versions have been burned and/or hard to obtain.
When I read through some text about various subject matters like the color of the skin of the Jews. It doesn't seem like things that should be include in a book. We all came from one man and one woman. To me it's not edifying anyone. I want people to understand the big concept which is what matter in life, not the small things like the color of the sky. We need things that will change our soul for a more abundant life. A life that is pleasing to God. It is a shame after all these years of the Bible being in circulation that we all can't full grasp simple and big concepts which leads me to believe that we don't have the fear of God in us. We have assume the role of God and want our race to be more superior to another race. Our race is the chosen race. Everybody has the opportunity to be God's chosen people. Pray for me as I intake all these ideas and concepts of the tribes of Israel.
