Why are phrases so vital to such a lot of Jews? Novelist Amos ounces and historian Fania Oz-Salzberger roam the gamut of Jewish historical past to provide an explanation for the necessary courting of Jews and phrases. via a mix of storytelling and scholarship, dialog and argument, father and daughter inform the stories at the back of Judaism’s so much enduring names, adages, disputes, texts, and quips.
The millennia-old port of Jaffa, now a part of Tel Aviv, used to be referred to as the "Bride of Palestine," one of many really cosmopolitan towns of the Mediterranean. There Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived, labored, and celebrated together—and it was once common for the Arabs of Jaffa to wait a marriage on the apartment of the Jewish Chelouche kin or for Jews and Arabs to either assemble on the Jewish spice store Tiv and the Arab Khamis Abulafia's twenty-four-hour bakery.

But there is no doubt that the problem originated in the Christian schools in the Orient, who made use of it to rationalize the dogma of the Trinity. There is extant a confession of faith attributed to Jacob Baradaeus (sixth century), the founder of the Syrian Church of the Monophysites or Jacobites, in which the phrase occurs that the Father is the Intellect, the Son is the Word and the Holy Ghost is Life. In the works of Elias of Nisibis of the Nestorian Church, who lived shortly after Saadia (g75-1049), we also find a passage in which the three expressions essence, life and wisdom are applied to the three persons of the Trinity.
But if God is not corporeal, he is not subject to motion or rest or anger or favor, for to deny the corporeality of God and still look for these accidents in him is to change the expression and retain the idea. 59 The incorporeality of God proves also his unity. ' And there are many powerful arguments besides against a dualistic theory. A unitary effect cannot be the result of two independent causes. For if one is responsible for the whole, there is nothing left for the other, and the assumption of his existence is gratuitous.
41 These points are not treated by Saadia expressly but are only mentioned incidentally in the elucidation of other problems dealing with the creation of the world and the exist* ence of God. Like Israeli Saadia shows considerable familiarity with Aristotelian notions as found in the Logic, the Physics and the Psychology. I t is doubtful, however, whether he really knew Aristotle's more important treatises at first hand and in detail. The "Categories," a small treatise forming the first book of Aristotle's logic, he no doubt knew, but the other Aristotelian concepts he probably derived from secondary sources.
