Who is the Ner Tamid?
Shmot (Exodus) 27:20 You are to order the people of Israel to bring you pure oil of pounded olives for the light, and to keep a lamp burning continually. 21 Aharon and his sons are to put it in the tent of meeting, outside the curtain in front of the testimony, and keep it burning from evening until morning before Adonai. This is to be a permanent regulation through all the generations of the people of Israel. (Complete Jewish Bible)
Yochanan (John) 1:6-13 (New King James Version)
“6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Mattityahu (Matthew) 5:16 (New King James Version)
“16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Let your Ner Tamid Shine in a world of darkness, do good works!
