As I was looking at the creation account in Genesis I came across a reference in Adam Clarke that led me to a quote that I found interesting. It traces back to a Jewish Rabbi of the second century, Simeon ben Joachi.
“In the Talmudic legend, Rabbi Simeon made some adverse remarks about the Roman occupation of Judaea and when this was reported to the government authorities he was obliged to flee for his life. Together with his son, Eleazar, he lived in a cave for thirteen years.”So you see that there are historical parallels for what we are going through today.
See you in the caves.
