PORTION TOLDOT 2015
WHAT DID JOHN WAYNE AND RAMBO HAVE TO DO WITH THIS WEEKS "TORAH“ PORTION?
THE ANSWER IS, THAT BOTH OF THOSE CHARACTERS AS PERSONIFIED IN THE MOVIE, ARE REALLY MODERN VERSIONS OF ESAU OF THE BIBLE.
AFTER ALL, ESAU IS THE SIMPLE, SILENT TYPE. A MAN
OF ROBUST NATURE, WHO EXALTS IN HIS OWN HEALTH, STRENGTH, AND ENERGY. HE’S A MAN WHO LOVES TO HUNT. HE REVELS IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS. HE PUSHES HIS PHYSICAL SKILLS TO THE LIMIT.
