an archer, teacher; fruitful. (1.) A Canaanite probably who inhabited the district south of Shechem, between Mounts Ebal and Gerizim, and gave his name to the "plain" there (Gen. 12:6). Here at this "plain," or rather (R.V.) "oak," of Moreh, Abraham built his first altar in the land of Palestine; and here the Lord appeared unto him. He afterwards left this plain and moved southward, and pitched his tent between Bethel on the west and Hai on the east (Gen. 12:7, 8).
Only after the film is over does moreh's strategy become wholly clear.
moreh didn't seek out interview subjects with whom he agrees.
moreh is willing to listen to his subjects, even when he disagrees with them.
So Maimonides wrote his moreh only for those who already were masters of the law.
Abraham passed through the land to a place called Shechem, to the oak of moreh.
Across the valley to the south is the Hill of moreh and the Samaritan hills beyond.
Here stood the oak of moreh, a well-known landmark and favourite meeting-place.
His use of "raca" and "moreh" for reviling, shows their meaning was not lost upon him.
And Abraham passed through the land unto the place of Shechem, unto the oak of moreh.
And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of moreh.
