HughBe---Put it in context.
My Jewish Learning, extract.
""The Talmud OUTSTRIPS even the Bible in influence and importance. Explicating and building upon the Torah's laws, stories, and ideas, the Talmud also lay the groundwork for new religious sensibilities that stressed scholarship and were attuned to the needs of the Jews in the Diaspora."
HughBe--- You are now agreeing with my original assertion which previously you FALSELY claimed was taken out of context. I am asking you to learn this today, unless I am joking it is virtually impossible for me to knowingly take things out of context to mislead. I don't stoop so low.
Frijoles---ask ANY observant Jew and they will tell you that Talmud is BASED upon written Torah, therefore no contradiction in thought process.
HughBe--- WRONG, as usual. Do you know anything as an observant Judahite?
The Talmud is NOT based on written Torah as you so FALSELY assert.
The Talmud is supposedly ORAL Torah, written down. Any intelligent Judahite knows that the Talmud is FALSE and are man-made nonsense and in fact it is the TOOL that has been used to enslave the Jewish people for centuries.
Why can the entire world read and understand the Torah and the BRIGHT Jewish people cannot and so they need the rabbis to express various interpretations to it.
Do this, select any chapter or verse in the Torah that is BEYOND your ability to understand and I shall lighten your darkness, without using the Talmud. It will be interesting to compare TRUTH i.e. my words with what is contained in the Talmud for the passage of your choice.
Frijoles--- You Christians do the same thing when you claim that following Jesus "IS JUST" an evolution of biblical law. Same idea, different religious system.
HughBe--- You are confused. Jesus the Lawgiver did NOT teach contrary to the law. YOUR master/rabbis do.
Oral torah is MISHNA,
Talmud is mishna plus gemmara
As of Jesus - that is matter of opinion, obviously. Thats why Christianity is a whole other religion than Judaism.
