Faith Strengthened (Chizzuk Emunah): 1200 Biblical Refutations to Christian Missionaries by Isaac ben Abraham Troki

Faith Strenghened is unique among refutations of Christian polemics against Judaism and the Hebrew Bible. As the title indicated, the author (1533-1594) wrote this book for his fellow-Jews, so as to fortify them in their religious faith. This distinguished Karaite scholar critically analyzed the Christological interpretations of the Hebrew Bible, and the theologies which proclaimed the Church to be the “New Israel of G-d” and Jesus the Messiah predicted by the Hebrew prophets. This work contains more than twelve hundred Biblical passages on which Isaac ben Abraham Troki comments.

One thought on “Faith Strengthened (Chizzuk Emunah)

  1. Chapter 90: Ignorance of Hebrew language
    leads Paul to the wrong conclusion about
    Galatians 3:16, “Now to Abraham and his seed were the
    promises made: He saith not, and to seeds as of many; but
    as of one, and to thy seed, which is Christ.”
    Want of acquaintance with the genius of the Hebrew
    language, has led the author of the epistle to a wrong
    conclusion. When seed signifies posterity, it is never put in
    the plural number. See Genesis 13:15, “For all the land
    which thou seest, I will give to thee, and to thy seed for
    evermore.” Immediately after this promise, we read,
    [Genesis 13:16] “And thy seed shall be like the dust of the
    earth.” This relates to the numbers of individuals, and not
    to a single individual. Again, we find in Genesis 15:5,
    “And He caused him to go out (of the house) and He spake,
    Look now up to heaven, and count the stars, if thou canst
    count them; and He said unto him Thus shall be thy seed.”
    Ibid verse 13, “And He spake unto Abraham, Thou shalt
    surely know that thy seed shall be strangers in a land
    which is not theirs.” These examples may suffice, but
    similar ones may be found in various parts of Scripture.
    These annotations afford abundant proof that the term seed,
    in the promise given to Abraham, refers to an entire nation.
