As a PP wrote, in Contra Celsum, written in 248 C.E. (some 800 years before Rashi), the church father Origen wrote that learned Jews contemporary with him interpreted Isaiah 52-53 as referring to the entire nation of Israel. Quote: Originally Posted by Origen I remember that once in a discussion with some whom the Jews regard as learned I used these prophecies [Isaiah 52:13-53:8].

I feel so bad for Anna- to have such a wonderful thing be followed so closely by tragedy. I can't imagine how she is coping at all. I...

Jane, I refuted many of your so-called proof texts in posts 214-219. As well, the uncredited quote you just posted above-- care to tell us what you think it means?

What you wrote has nothing to do with judaism. I don't believe this is the case, historically. Mystically, yes. Again, I am not writing about "Judaism" as you may believe in it, per se.

This post was left behind on the other thread: Quote: Originally Posted by merpk And I repeat, as I've posted before: The fact that many Hebrews/Jews were idol worshippers and were not behaving as the Torah instructs does *not* mean that Judaism/the Hebrew belief system was ever nonmonotheistic. It just means lots of Jews/Hebrews were behaving badly. By Torah law, that is.
Tell me more about your closet.

The mishna was written down for the very fact that the chachamim (wise ones) decided that it was being forgotten, so they wrote it down. Including their disagreements (discepancy in rememberance). Whether teffilin is like this or like that is a valid torah discussion. The idea that "totafot" meant Hashem gave us a word and meant for us to decide for...
Quote: Originally Posted by mom2seven I think right there you miss the entire point. "Looking up the Hebrew version" really isn't that enlightening. Most of the Jewish understanding is based on the oral tradtion as recorded in the Talmud and responsa. I will point out that even those who rely on textual criticism still turn these sources first and take them into consideration when studying a topic. I see where the disconnect here is then. I...
