Genesis Chapter 34 & 35
SHECHEM • 1. An ancient fortified city in central Palestine and the first capital of the northern kingdom of Israel • Its name means "shoulder, " probably because the city was built mainly on the slope, or shoulder, of Mount Ebal.
SHECHEM • Shechem is first mentioned in connection with Abraham's journey into the land of Canaan. • When Abraham eventually came to Shechem, the Lord appeared to him and announced that this was the land He would give to Abraham's descendants (Gen 12: 6; Sichem, KJV). • This fulfilled God's promise to Abraham at the time of his call (Gen 12: 1 -3). • In response, Abraham built his first altar to the Lord in Canaan at Shechem (Gen 12: 7). • Because of this incident, Shechem is an important place in the religious history of the Hebrew people.
SHECHEM • Jacob , Upon his return from Padan Aram, also built an altar to the Lord at Shechem (Gen 33: 18 -20). • This marked Jacob's safe return to the Promised Land from the land of selfimposed exile. • According to Jewish tradition, Jacob dug a deep well here (John 4: 12).
SHECHEM • At the close of his life, Joshua gathered the tribes of Israel at Shechem. Here he reviewed God's gracious dealings with Israel and performed a covenant-renewing ceremony on behalf of the nation. • He closed his speech with his famous statement, "Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Josh 24: 15).
SHECHEM • The significance of Shechem in Israel's history continued into the period of the Divided Kingdom. • Rehoboam, successor to King Solomon, went to Shechem to be crowned king over all Israel (1 Kings 12: 1). • Later, when the nation divided into two kingdoms, Shechem became the first capital of the northern kingdom of Israel (1 Kings 12: 25). • Samaria eventually became the permanent political capital of the Northern Kingdom, but Shechem retained its religious importance. • It apparently was a sanctuary for worship of God in Hosea's time in the eighth century B. C. (Hos 6: 9).

" • 11 The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? 12 Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock? " • 13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. " • NKJV

EARRING • From the earliest ages the Orientals have believed in the influences of the stars, in spells, witchcraft, and the malign power of envy; and to protect themselves against the maladies and other evils which such influences were supposed to occasion, almost all the ancient nations wore amulets • (from Mc.
