    That’s wild. I haven’t been reading much Scripture recently, for at least a month now. Then today I was looking for something to translate into Greek and I decided to use the opening Shema verse from Mark chapter 12. I even still have the tab open from earlier this morning. And I was also thinking earlier, way in the back of my mind, about how I wished I could see some “sign” to help me re-vitalize my desire for Biblical reading.

    Then I come here to Mark’s blog for the first time in a few days and see an article about Mark chapter 12. Call me easily amazed, but it seems wild to me.

    By the way, that question from the Gospel of Mark has to do with reincarnation and the Seven Jewish Patriarchs, who are still distinguished in modern Orthodox Judaism: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, and Solomon. Stephen summarizes the Seven Patriarchs nicely in Acts 7:1-51.

    The Sadducees were trying to trick Jesus into claiming to be one of the Seven Patriarchs, re-incarnated. Look up the term “gilgul hanefesh” and its relation to modern Judaism.
