Sarepta

 

Pronunciation:  

Occurrences:  3

First Reference:  Yeshua 6:22

 

But unto none of them was Elijah sent except unto a woman that was a widow in Sarepta, a city by the coast of Tyre and Sidon.

 

 

See:  Callistus, Sidon, Tyre

 

Summary:  Located in modern-day Lebanon, Sarepta was a city on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea between the cities of Sidon and Tyre (MAP).

 

After offending members of the synagogue in Nazareth, Yeshua reminded the people that ‘no prophet is accepted in his own country’, and referred to an event recorded in scripture in which the prophet Elijah went outside the borders of Israel seeking the assistance of a widow who lived in Sarepta (Y:6:6-23). While staying at the home of the women, Porcius and Salome, Yeshua was accused by scribes and Pharisees of communing with Gentiles and sinners. Once again, Yeshua referenced the story of Elijah and the widow from Sarepta (Y:20:15-29).

 

While teaching in the city of Tyre, Yeshua was invited to come to Sidon by way of ship, but he chose instead to travel by foot through the town of Sarepta. Once there, he went to the house of Callistus and healed his only son. When Callistus offered to give Yeshua anything he asked, Yeshua requested to adopt the slave boy, Thaddeus Labbaeus, whom Yeshua called Jude (Y:22:70-85).

 

 

Notes/References:


Did not Elijah, by God’s word, go up unto Sarepta that he might find refuge in the house of a Sidonian widow? Will you say that Elijah sinned because he entered also the house of a Gentile?

Why, therefore, will you yourselves behave unseemly before God because of Gentiles and sinners?

Yeshua 20:28-29
