Ancient Traditions from the Hebrew Scriptures, Part 3

In this 4-part series, Dr. Noreen Jacks presents the history and commitment of the ancient scribes, who meticulously copied the sacred Scriptures and preserved the pronunciation of the Hebrew language for future generations. These lectures discuss the history, purpose and symbolism of the mezuzah, teffillin (phylacteries in Greek), and the annual feast of Purim.

Session 3: Tefillin - Little Boxes with a Big Message

If you have taken a trip to Israel, you have probably witnessed the Jewish tradition of men binding their arms in preparation for prayers that follow. There is much to learn from the custom of tefillin, which places little boxes on the forehead and wraps the arm with a strap. This may seem strange and uncomfortable to Christians, but the tradition comes from Scripture and the meaning and purpose is inspiring.
