what happened to the name Jacob after wrestling
with an angel.
. “And he said, thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but
Israel; for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men,
and hast prevailed.”
. To summarize: Abraham was a Hebrew. The descendants of
Jacob were Israelites consisting of the twelve tribes. Judah was
nicknamed “Jew” so that only Judah’s descendants were called
Jews originally. To know who Moses really was, read
“And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to
their generations; Ghershon, and Kohath, and Merari.... And the
sons of Kohath; Amram.... And Amram took him Jochebed his
father’s sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses.”
So Moses was not a Jew because he was not descended
from Judah but a Levite.
Moses was given the Torah (Law),
which was given for the Jews. (The children of Israel.)
How can you explain that?
. Because we are using the Holy Qur’an as the standard. One
can explain the Bible and correct the Jewish and Christian
prejudice with the context of the Qur’an.
