... It seems to me like the God of the OT doesn't love unconditionally and is quick to anger, the opposite of what the NT seems to teach. It's hard to reconcile ...
|I agree, Beloved Bird. Have you ever seen the OT to compare?|
|In addition to the written scriptures we have an "Oral Torah," a tradition explaining what the above scriptures mean and how to interpret them and apply the Laws. Orthodox Jews believe G-d taught the Oral Torah to Moses, and he taught it to others, down to the present day. This tradition was maintained in oral form only until about the 2d century C.E., when the oral law was compiled and written down in a document called the Mishnah.|
