Here [In the State if Israel] their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance, and gave the world the Eternal Book of Books. David Ben-Gurion, 14 May 1948Seventy years ago in 1948 the State of Israel came into being amidst great controversy. For many, the Jews did not belong in Palestine and around them many nations sought to eradicate the new state from the map.How did the State arise? What led to the founding of Israel?This book sets out to give a chronological journey of the Jewish people from the time Abraham came out of the land of Ur 3,000 years ago, until 6 million of them died in the horror of the Holocaust under Hitler and his Nazi regime.It recounts the many expulsions from the land in which they lived, the suffering under Babylonians, Greek, Persians, the destruction of their Temple in Jerusalem in 70 AD, and finally, genocide and the expulsion by the Romans in 132 AD creating a diaspora across the world.The Jews would be charged with killing God and throughout the following centuries would be expelled from countries, burned alive after being locked in Synagogues and at the stake, have all their property seized and herded into ghettoes. All of this until that fatal Holocaust, which attempted to wipe them from the face of the earth.This book recounts their story to achieve a homeland , using a wide-range of historical documents to tell the story of humiliation, suffering, poverty and death. It tells of religious persecution that would not let them rest, and as their journey enters the twentieth century, gives a behind-the-scenes look at how governments manipulated the Middle East and exacerbated divisions.

Im hier vorliegenden Kommentar zum Brief von Paulus an die Römer wird versucht, die Lehre von Paulus einer Gesamtschau zu unterziehen. Der Römerbrief ist ein Dokument der heilsgeschichtlichen Absichten und Ziele Gottes. Bei Paulus steht die Erringung der absoluten Freiheit von den Gebundenheiten an unheilvolle und gottfeindliche Mächte im Vordergrund und dementsprechend die völlige Befreiung durch Jesus Christus. Es ist eine Befreiung von der Sünde und von der fatalen Gottesferne, aber auch von Irrtum und Unwahrheit. Und das ist für Paulus gleichbedeutend mit dem Hin zu Christus und der Vervollkommnung durch Ihn. Die traditionelle Kirchentheologie ist demgegenüber eine Relativitätstheologie. Sie ist sinaitisch, weil sie noch nicht im gelobten Land des Theos-Logos, einer Gottes-Kunde, die vom Ziel, dem Christus herkommt, angekommen ist. Sie läuft sich, wie damals Israel in der Wüste, an ihrer Uneinsichtigkeit wund. Das macht sie unfähig, Gottes authentisches Rufen zu hören. Man muss sie in der Wüste begraben, damit sie niemand mehr am Fortkommen von den menschlichen Gebundenheiten und dem Hinkommen zum Heiland Jesus, dem Theos-Logos, hindert.

Der berühmteste Koffer der Literaturgeschichte hätte es beinahe nicht geschafft. Max Brod hatte ihn bei sich, als er 1939 mit dem letzten Zug von Prag nach Palästina floh. Im Koffer: Manuskripte, Notate, Kritzeleien seines Freundes Franz Kafka. Jahrzehnte später entsponn sich darum ein Gerichtskrimi, der erst 2016 ein Ende fand. Vordergründig wurde über den Nachlass von Max Brod entschieden, doch standen noch ganz andere Fragen im Raum: War Kafka vor allem ein jüdischer Autor?? Wo ist sein Erbe richtig aufgehoben?? In Israel?? Oder in jenem Land, in dessen Namen Kafkas Familie einst ausgelöscht wurde?? Eine filmreife Geschichte, die nicht nur zeigt, weshalb die Frage, wem Kafka gehört, zum Glück nie entschieden werden kann. ´´Eine meisterliche Spurensuche.´´?Cynthia Ozick ´´Dieses gut recherchierte, spannende Buch erhellt das komplexe Verhältnis zwischen Literatur, Religion, Kultur und Nationalität.´´ Publishers Weekly
