Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

ABRAHAMS TOMB

Hebron Abrahams home according to the Bible. Hebron contains the most ancient site in Jewish history.

Genesis 25:7

The Death of Abraham

7 Altogether, Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.

8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people.

9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite,

10 the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah.

[b]Hebron, Abraham’s home according to the Bible.




Hebron contains the most ancient site in Jewish history, second only in importance to the Temple on the Mount in Jerusalem. It is a tomb named Machpelah, tomb of the patriarchs. The Bible says that Abraham purchased a cave to bury his wife Sarah, and an adjoining field. Abraham was considered a “friend of God” in Arabic, Al Khalil, literally “the friend of God”.

The word Hebron is derived from the Hebrew word haver, meaning friend. Abraham resided here when he arrived in Canaan and King David was anointed here, where he reigned for seven years. Isaac was born in Hebron, as was Jonah, and Arab legend has it that the stone foundations were laid by King Solomon himself.

Abraham insisted on paying the going rate for the site. He, his wife Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and wives Rebecca and Leigh are all buried here. Only Jacob’s wife is missing. She died bearing Benjamin in Bethlehem. The bible says Sarah lived 127 years and died in Kiriath Arba – that is Hebron – in the land of Canaan. Genesis 23 Now Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to weep over her.

Then Abraham rose from beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites. He said “I am an alien and a stranger among you. Sell me some property for a burial site here so that I can bury my dead”. The Hittites replied to Abraham, “You are a mighty prince among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will refuse you”. Abraham said “Sell me the cave of Machpelah which belongs to him and is at the end of his field. Ask him to sell it to me for the full price of a burial site among you”.

The Bible says that Abraham was offered the site free of charge, but he insisted on paying the full price of 400 shekels in silver. When the time came, he buried his wife Sarah in the cave. Simon found it amazing that shekels were still the currency of Israel today. Throughout the Byzantine, Arab, Marmaluke and Ottoman empires, this whole area had been the scene of war and unrest.

Given this history, the wisdom of going there was discussed by the group. Einar and Simon were by now on their fourth visit to the area and fairly confident. It was decided they would go. A building built by Herod 2000 years ago now covers the cave. The walls are 50 to 60 feet high and said to resemble the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The shrine is at present used as a mosque and the building consists of three rooms containing richly decorated cenotaphs. These are covered in green tapestries, worked with inscriptions and verses. It is believed that they stand exactly above the tombs.

Many violent incidents have occurred in this place. In May 1980, six Jewish students were killed and twenty wounded, by Palestinians. In February 1994, 29 Muslim worshippers were killed and a further 129 wounded, when a Jewish gunman opened fire in the building. The bullet marks can be seen today. Suffice to say, the general mood of the group was one of caution!

Here then lie Abraham, Isaac, Sarah and Jacob. Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man full of years, and he was gathered to his people.His sons Issac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, the field Abraham had brought from the Hittite. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. There are other significant sites of religious and historical interest at Hebron, including the tombs of Othniel. Buried here are Ben Kemaz, 1st judge of Israel, Avner Ben-ner, general and confidante to Kings Saul and David. Also there are Ruth and Jesse, great grandmother and father to King David respectively.

THE SO CALLED ''MISSING LINKS'' TO EVOLUTION THAT FOOLED THE DUMB SCIENTIST












-----------------------------------------------------


IF THE BIBLE IS TRUE, THEN WE CAN SEE THE EVIDENCE.
IF THE BIBLE IS NOT TRUE, THAN WE WILL NOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT.
MOST PEOPLE KNOW EVIDENCE PROVES THINGS TO BE TRUE.
HAVE WE SEEN ANY EVIDENCE. THAT PROVES THE BIBLE?
YES WE CAN STILL SEE 1000'S OF YEARS LATER THE STAGGERING EVIDENCE TO PROVE EVERY STORY OF THE BIBLE.
The many bible discoveries and information on this web site proves the Holy Bible to be forensically accurate and perfectly reliable in every possible way and in every detail truthful concerning the most important events in human history.
The whole purpose of this website is to help bring people to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Some need evidence, others do not. I hope that the evidence shown on this site helps you make a decision for the Lord.
When we “believe” that Jesus Christ truly died on the cross for our sins and if we believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and follow Him by taking up our cross, you shall be saved.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Some need physical proof... well here it is. Some simply believe. The Bible says, “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet hath believed.” Whether you believe what I’ve shared in this website or not, and you have not yet received this free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord, now is the day. Let today be the day of your salvation!
If you are looking for the evidence of the bible, God or Jesus, here it is. It is time to turn away from our sins, believe and receive salvation, and follow Jesus. Amen.

Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven. Psalm 85:11
Barnes' Notes on the Bible: Truth shall spring out of the earth - As plants do - for this is the meaning of the word. The blessings of truth and righteousness would be like the grass, the shrubs, the flowers, which spring up from the ground - and like the, rain and the sunbeams which come from heaven. Truth would spring up everywhere, and abound in all lands, as plants, and shrubs, and grass spring up all over the earth.
