"Beer Sheva" by Beer and Bella Perlhefter
83,27 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The study by Nathanael Riemer focuses on the work Beer Sheva (Seven Wells) which was written in Yiddish by Rabbi Beer Shmuel Issachar and his wife Bella Perlhefter of Prague at the turn of the seventeenth to the eighteenth century. As a book of remembrance and consolation it was dedicated to the couple's seven deceased children. Beer, who worked as a private teacher of Jewish literature to the polymath Johann Christoph Wagenseil, is known as an extraordinary Kabbalist. In the present research, wide-scattered documents are gathered for the first time to write a biography of the authors. The preserved manuscripts are compared and analyzed in terms of literary criticism and religious history: Beer Sheva is presented from the point of view of structure and context in order to determine its character and classification within Jewish literature. In the seven parts of Beer Sheva, Heaven, Purgatory, and Paradise are presented in a simple, visual language. The history of Israel from the creation of the world until the Babylonian Exile takes up a great part, and leads to detailed reflections on the Messiah and Israel's salvation. It concludes with specific instructions for repentance, discussions of the resurrection of the dead, and presumptions of the future world.Beer Sheva is an impressive encyclopedia which assembles all important fields of knowledge of the Jewish culture while transporting moral ideas to the reader through entertaining stories. As one of the first Yiddish works, it makes longer Kabbalistic passages of the Zohar accessible to a non-academic audience by translating it into the cultural lingua franca of Ashkenazic Judaism.

The Year the End Began
41,90 CHF *

This book is the final book in my series on Amazing Prophecies Being Fulfilled. The purpose of this book is to discover when the ancient prophecies of the Bible began to be fulfilled. God's Word gave end-time prophecies throughout both the Old and New Testaments. Some of these prophecies were given thousands of years before the birth of Christ. Yet, until 1948, there were no indications that any of the prophecies the Bible made were being fulfilled. Simply stated, the prophecies laid dormant for thousands of years, but when Israel became a nation in 1948, there was an incredible and astounding movement toward their fulfillment. It was not just that Israel became a nation in 1948, but there were 109 other prophecies that related to Israel that came into play immediately following their declared statehood. A few of these things revolved around prophetic fulfilment of signs of the time relating to the city of Jerusalem, Israel's enemies, the rebuilding of the land of Israel, agricultural signs, Israel's end-time prosperity, preparations of the effort to rebuild the Temple, the end time hatred of the Jewish people and multitudes of other fascination subjects. Even prophecies that had nothing to do with Israel began their remarkable movement toward fulfillment in 1848. Things such as a Revived Roman Empire, the Ecumenical Movement, the World Council of Churches, the creation of worldwide enforcement laws which were initiated through the UN that would act as the tools the Antichrist could use in making it impossible to buy or sell without his mark began to form in 1948. There was the invention of the computer which will give the Antichrist the ability to keep track of every human being on the planet. In all, I shared about 550 different things prophesized in God's Word in my first six books that were dormant until 1948. The Year the End Began was 1948! I have used the Encyclopedia Britannica and other reliable sources to verify my point that only a few of the biblical prophecies came into play before 1948. I will show a decade by decade chronology of when these specific signs came on the scene.

Das Werk Beer Sheva (Sieben Brunnen) wurde von dem Prager Rabbiner Beer und seiner Frau Bella Perlhefter an der Schwelle vom 17. zum 18. Jahrhundert in jiddischer Sprache verfasst und ist als Erinnerungsbuch den sieben verstorbenen Kindern des Ehepaares gewidmet. Beer, der bei dem Universalgelehrten Johann Christoph Wagenseil als Lehrer für jüdische Literatur arbeitete, galt als ein aussergewöhnlicher Mystiker. In der vorliegenden Untersuchung werden erstmalig weitverstreute Dokumente zu einer Darstellung des Lebenswegs der Autoren zusammengetragen. Auf der Grundlage eines Vergleichs der erhaltenen Handschriften wird Beer Sheva unter literaturwissenschaftlichen und religionshistorischen Aspekten analysiert. Das Werk beschreibt in bildreicher Sprache zunächst den Himmel, das Purgatorium und das Paradies. Der Darstellung der Geschichte Israels von der Erschaffung der Welt bis zum Babylonischen Exil folgen Erläuterungen über die messianische Zeit und die Auferstehung der Toten. Die Autoren schufen mit Beer Sheva eine beindruckende Enzyklopädie, in die alle wichtigen Wissensbereiche des Judentums Eingang fanden. Die Lektüre soll dem Leser Moralvorstellungen vermitteln, möchte ihn aber auch mit Hilfe einer Fülle von Erzählungen unterhalten. Innerhalb der jüdischen Kultur stellt Beer Sheva eine Besonderheit dar, da es als eines der ersten jiddischen Werke Texte der Kabbala in der Kultursprache des aschkenasischen Judentums zugänglich macht und sich nicht an ein Gelehrtenpublikum richtet.
