Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title Unveiling Eve is the first feminist inquiry into the Hebrew poetry and prose forms cultivated in Muslim and Christian Spain, Italy, and Provence in the eleventh through fourteenth centuries. In the Jewish Middle Ages, writing was an exclusively male competence, and textual institutions such as the study of scripture, mysticism, philosophy, and liturgy were men's sanctuaries from which women were banished. These domains of male expertise—alongside belles lettres, on which Rosen's book focuses—served as virtual laboratories for experimenting with concepts of femininity and masculinity, hetero- and homosexuality, feminization and virilization, transvestism and transsexuality. Reviewing texts as varied as love lyric, love stories, marriage debates, rhetorical contests, and liturgical and moralistic pieces, Tova Rosen considers the positions and positioning of female figures and female voices within Jewish male discourse. The idolization and demonization of women present in these texts is read here against the background of scripture and rabbinic literature as well as the traditions of chivalry and misogyny in the hosting Islamic and Christian cultures. Unveiling Eve unravels the literary evidence of a patriarchal tradition in which women are routinely rendered nonentities, often positioned as abstractions without bodies or reified as bodies without subjectivities. Without rigidly following any one school of feminist thinking, Rosen creatively employs a variety of methodologies to describe and assess the texts' presentation of male sexual politics and delineate how women and concepts of gender were manipulated, fictionalized, fantasized, and poeticized. Inaugurating a new era of critical thinking in Hebrew literature, Unveiling Eve penetrates a field of medieval literary scholarship that has, until now, proven impervious to feminist criticism.

The secrets of the end times are hidden in scripture. The information in this book would be considered "top secret" in intelligence circles and represents truth that Satan does not want you to know. For years, he has been leading people to believe that a so-called Revived Roman Empire will rise, representing the "final beast empire" of Revelation 13. However, as this book will prove, the meanings of the original Hebrew in the Bible,in addition to numbers, patterns, and codes found therein, all point to an Israel centered interpretation of the last days and the fact that the beast is actually the religion and empire of Islam within religious Israel. In this fascinating study, you will explore the original text of the Bible to uncover exactly what will take place during the last days. You will also discover: • How Yahweh uses the Hebrew language in His plan • The meaning behind cryptic passages, such as Daniel 2, 7 and 9, and Revelation 13 and 17 • The mark, name of the beast, and 666 are all associated with the Islamic control of Israel • Lucifer's plan to trick the Jews of Israel to worship him instead of Yahweh • The prophetic importance of 2020 and its relation to Islam This ground-breaking research astoundingly supplements the recent findings of prominent Christian Islamic expositors, and is a must read for any serious truth seeker.

Have you ever wondered where you are in life? You realize that there is more to life than what meets the eye, and yet you find that you are not where you want to be. Realizing and acknowledging your true reflection in the mirror can be either a beautiful or a devastating experience, depending upon one's perspective. However, it takes courage to confront the issues and responsibilities of oneself while not casting the blame onto others because of our own ignorance and lack of knowledge. One can go through life wondering and searching, trying to understand how to get to that place. Sometimes it appears as though one is going around in circles trying to understand how we fit into this world. What is my real purpose for being on this earth? Well, the Word of God tells us that God has predestined our lives before the foundations of the world. Then the question remains of how do we get to the place that God has purposed for each of us in this preordained plan?

The author is convinced that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to conceal the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah. She solves the mystery by reconstructing the deleted sections. King pieces together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah and shows that the key passages that were tampered with are actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to the New Testament Gospels. Using those passags and the history of the period, she identifies the figures mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
