And in you and your seed shall all the families of the Earth be blessed!

Genesis 28:14 states And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south; and in you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed:

The last phrase is truly magnificent and extremely pertinent since it means that God’s word will pervade throughout the world through Jacob’s seed. Therefore the entire Biblical text of the Old Testament is not only for the Jews, but it is for the whole world. And indeed as we see it today the core root of the law of God given to Abraham and his descendents has reached to Moslems and Christian’s covering 21% and 33% of the global population, respectively.

This brings into relevance the whole genealogy of the Bible emphasizing that the Moslem race generated from the seed of Ishmael and Esau (See hyperlink And these are the generations and Gathered unto his people) and Christianity that was born in the Land of Israel are agents and proof of this very phrase ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth be blessed’.
