The God of Jews
The God of the Jews
One of the most beautiful passages in the Bible is Hosea 14: 6,7: “[Israel's] beauty shall be like the olive trees, His fragrance like that of Lebanon.” The biblical writers wrote lavishly and anthropomorphically of the Hebrew God, and the vast majority of Jews understand the supposedly emotional character of God metaphorically. Yet it is our metaphor: a romantic, passionate God who becomes hurt and angry over humanity's fickleness, but then always ends up assuring us of a relentless, unending, perfect love. Come with me and meet our God.
