    The paper written by Dr. Maurice Mizrahi was interesting. Do not think it was very historical, but I do not know all of Roman (Latin) and Edomite (Esau/Oriental) mythology.

    Reading from Josephus (a First Century historian and participating General in The Jewish Wars), the Zealots with in Jerusalem opened the gates of Jerusalem and let in from their southern neighbors, 20,000 Edomite soldiers into Jerusalem. The Edomite soldiers were NOT contracted as Roman soldiers or part of Roman Legion Armies. The Edomites and Zealots comprised one of three different Factions within the walls of Jerusalem. The Edomites and the Zealots (per Josephus) slaughtered the Priests and the common people at will. I read nothing in Josephus about 'the Romans' of Rome being Edomites. The Roman Legions were made up of many tribes and peoples of the Roman Empire, some within those Legions most likely were of Edom linage.

    Blessings to You

    Why Rome Is Likened to a Boar:

    https://www.thetorah.com/article/why...ened-to-a-boar

    The taboo against pork consumption has been a defining mark of Israelite and Jewish culture for millennia.

    etc.
    This was also the case when Mark was written

    When was it written?

    Apparently after the year 70, after the destruction of the temple, since Mark 13 does relate about it, and also since Mark 5 speaks of Legion, Legio being a brigade of the Roman army

    The Final Days Before the Kingdom of God

    Leviticus Rabbah adds one further homily on Rome being pig-like, which is different than the previous ones, since in this case, the pig is a hopeful symbol:


    "The pig"? this is Edom. "It does not chew its cud (gerah)" It brought (gerara) no kingdom after it. Why is it called a pig (chazir)? Because it returns (mechazeret) the crown to its master. This is what the verse means (Obad 1:21): "For liberators shall march up on Mount Zion to wreak judgment on Mount Esau; and dominion shall be the Lord's."

    This midrash is built entirely on word play, and ignores Rome as a character. Instead, it focuses on Rome's place as the final kingdom after which the age of the Messiah comes, ushering in the end of the days.

    Revelation 11:15 is said to be after Obadiah 1:21

    https://biblehub.com/revelation/11-15.htm

    https://bible.usccb.org/bible/revelation/11

    Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet. There were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world now belongs to our Lord and to his Anointed, and he will reign forever and ever."

    (...)

    The seventh trumpet proclaims the coming of God's reign after the victory over diabolical powers

    (...)
    Revelation 10:7,
    At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets


    (...)

    The mysterious plan of God: literally, "the mystery of God," the end of the present age when the forces of evil will be put down (Rev 17:1?19:4, 11?21; 20:7?10; cf. 2 Thes 2:6?12; Rom 16:25?26), and the establishment of the reign of God when all creation will be made new (Rev 21:1 -22:5).

    DON'T THROW YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

    (Matthew 7:6)

    Name:  pearls before swine.jpg

    Matthew 13:45-46 informs you about pearls:
    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
    Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.


    it follows v.44,
    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.


    that you might think the pearl of great price is the treasure that was hidden in the field.

    treasure = Greek θησαυρός

    Hebrew "g'nizah" - after which "or haganuz" = the hidden light of creation,

    Mark 15:45, And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.



    Mark 5:1-5,
    And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the sepulchres a man with an unclean spirit,
    Who had his dwelling among the sepulchres; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the sepulchres, crying, and cutting himself with stones.




    Mark 16:5-6,
    And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
    And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
