JT I will skip your allegations of "personal insults" which is a personal insult... because there were no "personal insults" in any of my forgiven posts, and you know it.
But that is the type of trivia you wish to obsess on, because it diverts from the real matter at hand:
JT: there is no reference to PETROLEUM OIL in the bible. In case you missed it in your San Diego history class, petroleum oil was not known in biblical times. But OLIVE OIL was.
Yes, JT fails to mention that the "oil in Israel" cannot be petroleum because petroleum never existed as any sort of product in Biblical times: the true biblical Israelites did not have automobiles, no trucks, no equipment of any kind using petroleum spirit. Fact.
The "treasure"of Biblical Israel was OLIVE OIL because olive trees were the number one harvest and source of oil in Biblical days, and olive oil was considered to be a treasure from God at that time.
It is as simple as that. Just as "The End of an Age" was misinterpreted to mean "Armageddon" instead of the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, which is the correct translation.
You can believe the lie of the Zeitgeists is you whish but G-d's word will stand for all time. The oil word has been throughly researched but I can see you would reject anything put forth so why waist the time.
