Did You Know

Did you know that
  • the Jewish people (men I think) were to wear a garment known as a "Tzitzit". In Numbers 15:37-41 God commanded the people saying 'Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so yo will remember all the commands of the LORD....
  • Jesus would of worn the same type of garment (Shawl)
  • And in Deuteronomy 22:12 "Make tassels on the four corners of the cloak you wear".
  • In Numbers 15:38 the word translated for "border" or "corner" is the Hebrew word "kanaph", which can be translated "wings"
  • Each shawl was made of 5 double knots and 8 threads, which has a total numeric value of 13. The Hebraic numerical value for the word "Tzitzit" is 600, added together you have 613, which points to the 613 commandments of the law.
  • Matthew 9:20-22 the woman with the issue of blood. She touched the hem of His garment, the Greek word for garment is "kraspedon" meaning, "a tassel of twisted wool"
  • Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

  2. An elder from our Church spoke on this very thing some time ago. It gave me chills then and still does now. Imagine, to touch the hem (wing) of Jesus' shawl! And we can have such intimacy with Him now. Thanks for posting it.
