The Disputations

Removing the michshol
(stumbling block)
between Joseph and Judah

© 2005 Maggid ben Yosef




Isaiah spoke of a time in the future when those who would put their trust in the God of Israel would possess the land and inherit His holy mountain. (Isaiah 57:13). At that time, verse 14 states, one would say, " ... take up the michshol (stumbling block) out of the way of My People."  The michshol is defined by Strong’s as an "obstacle or enticement -- specifically an idol -- that causes one offence or to fall." The reference to My People -- Ami, in Hebrew – should bring to mind the promise of restoration made by the God of Israel to the Assimilation of the Northern Kingdom.

            The following Disputations suggest a means by which this stumbling block -- the idolization of Y'shua as Deity -- can be reconciled by the non-Jewish House of Joseph who should think of Y'shua as a tzadik. This role should not offend the Jewish House of Judah yet it fully describes the work of atonement and the ministry of reconciliation.

Mapping the problem

The outline of Judea-Samaria (above) shows that the northern two-thirds of the proposed Palestinian state (according to the pre-1967 borders), forms a partzuf of a head and crown. The two maps below show this region as (A) the biblical inheritance of  Ephraim, M'nashe and part of Benjamin or the non-Jewish House of Joseph, who is promised its return to the biblical Birthright. (Jeremiah 31:15-18, Hosea 2:1-2, Isaiah 49, and others)

and (B) A 3-D map of Israel (above) that shows Judea-Samaria is the high ground, containing all of the mountains of Israel, except the small Carmel range near Haifa. High ground given to a hostile neighboring state, spells S-U-I-C-I-D-E.


The non-Jewish House of Israel will reunite with the Jewish House of Judah 'ON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL'  (Ezekiel 37:22)


And how to solve it:


A sacred use for Judea-Samaria (to reunite Joes and Jews) mandates a different region for a Palestinian state. Thus "The Zechariah Plan" introduced below.
