However, shavuah is grammatically in the passive form of the word sheva — seven. Therefore, what makes the oath different from a vow is that an oath is unconditional and a vow is conditional. Furthermore, the legal status of the oath-sworn covenant makes the participants brothers of one bone and one flesh. God swearing by himself would indicate that the promises he made to Abraham would be unconditional and dependent on his sovereignty and eternal existence even after Abraham would die.
Theological and Philosophical Premises of Judaism. Academic Studies Press. Brighton, MA. Verse 19 concludes the narrative of the Akeidah as Abraham and company return to Beer Sheva where Abraham settles.
Examining all the passages that reference the oath and blessing passage would be exhaustive yet there are some that are vital to understanding how this cord is woven throughout. The selected passages under analysis include Genesis However, there is a progression of the oath that is found throughout these texts.
When God makes the covenant with Isaac in Gen. God specifically addresses that he would fulfill the oath he swore to Abraham. This moment between God and Isaac is one in which the covenant and the oath had been made and this could be considered a stipulation and test to Isaac just as God had put Abraham through tests of faith as well.
The focal point of the covenant with Jacob is the descendants and the blessing through them which the nations will receive. The moment of revelation takes place on the road to Padan Aram and invokes the imagery of the dust of the earth from Genesis This by no means indicates that the oath-covenant is different as it is the one that God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but rather that different aspects of it are stressed in the contexts of these passages.
At the same time there is a stress on the descendants and the families of the earth being blessed in them. This dynamic of the prophetic imagery is illustrated in the passages where the oath- covenant is referred to explicitly.
It also echoes the language of Genesis The difference may seem small when compared to the language used in relation to Isaac but the ground is always a part of the earth and never the whole earth itself.
This detail is parallel with the terms family and nation. A family is a smaller unit than a nation just as a man is generally the progenitor of a family. This is seen first in Genesis 10 wherein two passages family and nation in this idea of one that is a part of a greater whole is found. What is also noticeable is that the families of the earth are named after or in relation to their patriarchs. The context is that of the division of the seventy nations of Noah.
From these the coastlands of the nations spread out in their lands, each one according to his language, according to their families, in their nations. These distinctions are used when comparing and contrasting the language to understand how the nations and families of the earth will bless themselves by the fathers, the descendants, and which aspects were emphasized. Since Abraham is the father of three monotheistic faiths this whole aspect is mirrored in that these faiths span throughout the whole world and yet Jacob alone is the father of one ethnic family alone…Israel.
This progression of the oath and subsequent affirmations of the Abrahamic covenant were constituted with Isaac and Jacob and form a framework for how Israel should view themselves in relation to the covenant as well as the rest of the world around them. This example set forth by Abraham is found consistently in reference back to his merit in many writings and prayers within Judaism. Exploring Exodus: The Origins of Biblical Israel. A Rabbinic Anthology. Abraham, therefore, is the model throughout the Tanakh and his life the ideal example to the children of Israel.
The national heritage recalled is done so for a remembrance of who Israel is called to be and to do righteousness and justice.
The individual Abraham had an inheritance in the future the descendants indicated by the promise of God and the community Israel has an inheritance in their father and his faith. However, it is guarded by covenant and command. The Biblical World.
The University of Chicago Press. Accessed October 1, Exodus is considered to be a continuation of Genesis and this is noted by the reference by Joseph in Genesis about the oath and the fathers. The reference to the fathers even in reference to the children in Exodus 2: The reference in Jeremiah At this moment, Jeremiah cries out and reminds unfaithful Israel, towards their end, of their beginning and history in the oath sworn to the fathers and the Exodus.
Even though Abraham wavered in issues such as his sending away of Ishmael and Hagar and the doubt expressed in Genesis He did not receive as many commands as Israel but the archetype of all demands is found in the Akeidah.
Covenant love and faithfulness are thus threaded through the Tanakh. Fulfillment of The Oath While many components of the Genesis The fulfillment of the oath is covered in Genesis Throughout the many promise passages where the LORD speaks to Abraham there are a variety of ways God communicates how he will do what he has promised. The verb is used again in Genesis There are three other times the verbal root of fulfill is used in the Torah and they are found in Deuteronomy 9: Deuteronomy 9: Deuteronomy Where and in what way was or is the oath to Abraham fulfilled?
Acts 13 has another narrative where Paul speaks to the men and elders in the synagogue in Antioch. It is from this brief history that the trajectory of Yeshua is set as Paul presents Yeshua as the heir to the Davidic throne and by being raised from the dead is the 54 Acts. Such a focus on the oath-covenant-promise to the fathers indicates that this runs just as much thematically and carries a narrative flow through the Apostolic Writings just as it does throughout the Tanakh. There is a new dynamic carried throughout the Apostolic Writings in that the fulfillment of the oath-covenant-promise is found in Yeshua the Messiah as a servant of the circumcision- Jewish people.
What God promised to Abraham was not negated by what happened at Sinai. Yet the Sinai legislation did serve a pedagogical function, as a divine accommodation to Israelite transgressors, that is the backsliding descendants and heirs of the Abrahamic promise v.
