Ephraim

 

Pronunciation:  EE-free-ihm

Occurrences:  6

First Reference:  Yeshua 8:11 / Yeshua 33:1

 

Go you, therefore, and learn what the scriptures say: O Ephraim, what shall I do unto you? O Judah, what shall I do for your sake?   (Yeshua quoting Hosea 6:4)

Yeshua 8:11

 

So Yeshua came up out of the wilderness by the sea and traveled unto Ephraim, and the chief rabbi, desiring to examine the Master according to the law, prepared a feast to receive him.

Yeshua 33:1

 

 

See:  Benjamin Ben Jacob, Yeshua

 

Summary:  Ephraim was a small city about nine miles northeast of Jerusalem. After Yeshua’s visit there, as reported in Yeshua 33, the people of the town came to believe in him (Y:33:63), and Ephraim became a safe haven throughout the remaining days of Yeshua’s ministry (Y:40:2,16).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Ephraim

 

The second of two towns in Judea which gladly offered refuge to Yeshua. Ephraim was just nine miles northeast of Jerusalem. The town was noted for its grape arbors and for its wine. The chief rabbi of Ephraim was a good and just man named Benjamin Ben Jacob (Yeshua 33:1). The chief rabbi was so impressed with Yeshua that he became a devoted friend and disciple.

 

The elders of the town would often send invitations for Yeshua to come visit them. Whenever Yeshua went to Ephraim, he would stay in the home of the chief rabbi, and he would be invited to teach in the town’s main synagogue.

 

 

Notes/References:
 

 

And Yeshua, knowing the hearts of them which hated him, fled unto the city of Ephraim, both he and his disciples, and the whole city received him with gladness.
