Very often in our everyday life we, consciously or unconsciously, use ideas and expressions which are biblical, but do we know the meaning and significance of these invaluable words? Aren’t we using them inappropriately, out of place? The show “Reflections” touches upon these issues.
This biblical expression is taken from the Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 16, verse 44. There are other such expressions also: “See the mother, take her daughter"; “The fruit does not fall far from the tree.” The Book of Ezekiel reflects one of the crucial episodes of the history of Israel. In Chapter 16, Israel is presented in the image of adulteress, who went with Egyptians, Assyrians and Babylonians. The love of God toward people is often likened to the love between husband and wife. But unlike human marital relationships where a husband can send away or even hate his disloyal wife, God is patient and merciful.
