The Role the Hebrew Bible Played in U.S. History
At a time when revisionist history orders the content in our children’s textbooks in classrooms throughout America, we are slowly losing our historic connection to the role the Hebrew Bible played in the early foundations of this United States.
In fact, under the new Common Core State Standards, we are no longer teaching our children about our founding.
Edmond Burke stated, “People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors."
In Rabbi Ken Spiro’s book, WorldPerfect: The Jewish Impact on Civilization he writes,
“In England, the Puritan identification with the Bible was so strong that some Puritan extremists sought to replace English common law with Biblical laws of the Old Testament, but were prevented from doing so. In America, however, there was far more freedom to experiment with the use of Biblical law in the legal codes of the colonies, and this was exactly what these early colonists set out to do."
Norman Berdichevsky wrote, “The Puritan respect for Hebrew extended to it being a required subject on a par with Latin and Greek and it was part of the curriculum in Harvard, Brown, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, Yale, Columbia and Dartmouth, the last three of which universities preserve Hebrew inscriptions in their official seals. A Hebrew oration was given annually at Harvard graduation ceremonies until 1817. An intimate knowledge of the Old Testament scriptures in English translation was part of the formative home education of many New Englanders and early settlers in other regions.”
We must protect the future of the U.S. and our children by passing to them the Judeo-Christian values on which our country was founded.
If you have not become a PJTN Watchman yet, I want to encourage you to consider doing so today. For just $20/month, you can help PJTN reach 2.6 billion Christians around the world.
We need 7,000 Watchmen who have not bowed their knee to the false doctrine of replacement theology. It is replacement theology that has historically been the motivation behind Christian anti-Semitism. Ignorance breeds anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias.
