Dutch subtitled version here
The core of the Christian religion is the command to love "the Lord, thy God" and "thy neighbor". (What god would command his creation to love him?!)
Particularly the second part "love thy neighbor" is used still today, explicitly or implicitly, to force European nations to welcome an invasion of so-called refugees from very different cultures and tribes.
We will first show the bible quotes and then see what is said about the concept of "neighbor" or "next of kin" in the Oera Linda book. We will examine the varieties of this word in the OLB and in NW European languages.
Quotes from Bible, King James Version:
Matthew 22:37-39 and Mark 12:30-31
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God [...] Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God [...] and thy neighbour as thyself.
Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself [...]
"Thy neighbor" in other NW European language Bible translations:
deinen Nächsten - German (Luther, 1545)
din nästa - Swedish (1917)
|Charity by W.A. Bouguereau (1878)|
náunga þinn - Icelandic
uwen naesten/ uw naaste - Dutch (1637/ 2010)
dyn neiste - Frisian (1943)
