Awake The Biblical Story Within


 

Who is the assistant that was created against human pride and inflated sense of self-importance? Why does the bible name it “flesh” and essence? Join our daily conversation 🍒

Gen 2:17 וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, לֹא-טוֹב הֱיוֹת הָאָדָם לְבַדּוֹ; אֶעֱשֶׂה-לּוֹ עֵזֶר, כְּנֶגְדּוֹ

And the LORD God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an assistant against him.

Gen 2:21 וַיַּפֵּל יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים תַּרְדֵּמָה עַל-הָאָדָם, וַיִּישָׁן; וַיִּקַּח, אַחַת מִצַּלְעֹתָיו, וַיִּסְגֹּר בָּשָׂר, תַּחְתֶּנָּה.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept, and He took one of his ribs (letters) and closed up the place with flesh/a name/a word/a meaning instead of it.

Gen 2:23 וַיֹּאמֶר, הָאָדָם, זֹאת הַפַּעַם עֶצֶם מֵעֲצָמַי, וּבָשָׂר מִבְּשָׂרִי; לְזֹאת יִקָּרֵא אִשָּׁה, כִּי מֵאִישׁ לֻקְחָה-זֹּאת

23 And the man said: ‘This is now the essence of my essence, and a name of my name, she shall be called awareness, a divine fire, אש-ה because she was taken out of Man, איש 311 13*1 who is one and love.
