Byblical Donkey

Full Product Description

The abundant literature dedicated to the donkey and used by the compilers of BibleWorks 98, indicates biblical facts regarding this animal: the donkey is forbidden food; the donkey and the ox have to rest on Saturday; the first donkey is not subject to destruction in the Egyptian punishments. In addition to these general data, the donkey is charged with a rich, important biblical symbolism. Usually the kings choose a strong and combatant animal for ceremonies -- a thoroughbred horse, an imposing elephant or even a camel. Christ enters Jerusalem on the foal of a she-ass, as the king of the Jews. This is to fulfil the tradition -- David has a royal she-ass and Solomon is anointed as king on a wild donkey. It is either wisdom or stupidity for a king to ride an animal symbolising love of peace and sexuality. According to other interpretations, the male donkey is related to the material domain with its flesh and strength whereas those who ride it in ceremonies have mastered this aspect of the human being and society...However, how do we account for the fact that in Hebrew the asss foal is not a diminutive of the word donkey, as well as the fact that the she-ass signifies slow pace and has nothing in common with the jackass?
And what does Solomons wild donkey signify? The book replies to these curious questions and to the riddle as to why the king of the Jews rides the foal of a she-ass and the king is of the tribe of Judah, of whom Jacob/Israel prophesies that he will untie his donkey, just as the apostles set free the asss foal for which Jesus Christ sent them...
