Blessings or Curses? What has America received since recognizing “Israeli” statehood in 1948. This is a continuation of previous discussions on the subject. We decided to talk about this subject and the “Abrahamic Covenant” as we were going through lessons about oft mistranslated words and/or wrong definitions such as Semite, Hebrew, Gentile, Jew, etc. After we finished discussion blessings/curses associated with the blessing of so-called “Jews” we will return to a look at “Gentile” in the New Testament.
