From book of Malachi chapter 2 :
Admonition for the priests :
“And now this admonition is for you,O do not set your heart to to honor my name,”says the Lord Almighty,”I will send a curse upon you,and I will curse your blessings.Yes,I have already curse them, because you have not set your heart to honor me”….
Judah has broken faith.A detestable things has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem.Judah has desecrated the sanctuary the lord loves by marrying the daughter of a foreign God.As for the man who does this,who ever he may be,may the Lord cut him off from the tents of Jacob – even though he brings offerings to the Lord Almighty”.
And about three hundred and seventy years after ….Jesus Christ came!
Jesus begins his missions:
Book of Matthew 4:25 – Large crowds from Galilee,the Decapolis (previously the land of Reuben-the eldest of Jacob among the twelve and Bashan-previously land of Gad also one of the twelve sons).Known included the tents Cities.,Jer Jerusa,Judeah and the region across the Jordan followed Jesus.
The Beatitudes :
Now when wehe saw the crowds,he went to up on the mountainside and sat down.His disciples came to him,and he began to teach them,sayings :
Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.Blessed are those those who mourn,for they will be conforted.Blessed are the meek,for they will inherit the earth.Blessed are those who are in hunger and thrist for righteousness,for they will filled.Blessed are the merciful,for they will be shown mercy.Blessed are pure in heart,for they will see God.Blessed are the peacemakers,for they will called sons of God.Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,for there is the kingdom of heaven.And… Blessed are you when people insult you,persecute you and falsely and say all kinds of evil against you because of me.Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven,for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you”.
Judeah/Jerusalem is more in abundance compares to lsrael and we’ll known during those times.They oppressed the northern kingdoms(Israel) as treating for disobedient about the law of Temple praciced by priests.Judea previously named Judah never knew difficulties had experienced by Israel during their captivity because of desecrating of these laws but they seek the God of their forefathers Abraham,Isaac and Jacob in their hearts upon scatters.That been announced by God through prophets that Israel are the children of him.
And then Jesus Christ came to find them as son of God in person.As he said,”You’ll never be in thirst again” while he sitting on Jacob’s well in Samaria previous the land of Ephraim – the heirs of Israel through Jacob. also said,”you will never be to dwell in Jerusalem (Temple) anymore”.
