Skip to comments.7 Days of Creation
Posted on 05/29/2014 4:54:36 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine
Studying the Creation of Adam and Chava we learn about self-mastery and the management of interdependent polarities, two of the most important leadership skills in today's complex, modern world.
You can download the shiurim (lectures) by Rabbi David Lapin starting with the "Introduction to the new series on the Essence of Humankind."
Lecture #1: "Introduction to the new series on the Essence of Humankind"
Lecture #2: "The Planet and The Economy"
Lecture #3: "Man: The Divine Visionary"
Lecture #4: "Responsibility and Consequence"
Lecture #5: "How equal are the genders in Judaism....really?"
Lecture #6: "The Fatal Flaw"
I should learn stuff from a guy who does not believe in Jesus?
You follow the Christian’s deified rabbi, correct?
If so, you’ll be learning what Rabbi Lapin teaches the same as what was taught 2,000 years ago during your rabbi’s time and 3,000 years ago from Moses at Mt. Sinai.
Even your rabbi said that the pharisees (aka rabbis) were correct in what they taught. It was their example that wasn’t very consistent.
Everybody needs a rabbi.
Anything like an asylum with bi-polar inmates?
Maybe that's what happened right from the start: the inmates took over the asylum.
Who dat? You mean Jesus? Can't you say the name?
If so, youll be learning what Rabbi Lapin teaches the same as what was taught 2,000 years ago during your rabbis time and 3,000 years ago from Moses at Mt. Sinai.
Rabbi Lapin? Isn't Lapin French for "rabbit"?
Why should I give a crap about some Rabbit's idea of Theology?
Even your rabbi said
I ain't Jewish, I got no Rabbi.
Everybody needs a rabbi.
Believe in Jesus, accept no substitutes.
Jesus was a rabbi. You follow his teachings therefore he’s your rabbi.
We'll disagree there.
I reckon He was pretty sure of Himself and His message.
That makes Him a Christian.
You might read your New Testament again.
He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
King James version
Every other translation calls him a rabbi so get over it. Your rabbi is...a rabbi.
In the Gospels they call Jesus “Rabbi”, meaning “Master” and implies a great teacher. Jesus was a Rabbi to the disciples, because he was their Master and teacher.
I am enjoying the postings. Thank you.
Lack of accurate job titles.
I’m a Christian, I’ll respect a Rabbi but he ain’t anything but a learned fellow.
Jesus was The Christ and therefore Christian.
And hey.. how is it “MY” New Testament?
Whatchoo talkin’ about Willis?
That’s what rabbis do. They teach Torah to their students and to their congregation if they lead one.
As long as he doesn’t have a pancake on his head.
So what did he do for a living? Carpentry?
If you can’t accept from your own New Testament in black and white that he was Jewish and a rabbi you have some things to learn.
There were no Christians at time. Christ is another word for “annointed one” or ‘messiah’ or in Hebrew its known as “meshiach.”
Your New Testament is your New Testament.
If you agree with God (and Moses and the 70 Elders he taught plus all the rabbis that have been taught since then to now) that there is only one of Him and he is non-corporeal and is indivisible and above time and space that man, any man, is not allowed to be defied and cannot be God, therefore the New Testament isn’t your cup of tea. Only the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings are it plus the commentaries by the rabbis on these.
MY Testament? You give me too much credit.
Jesus was a Jew and His existence begat Christianity.
He made Judaism obsolete, and Rabbis too.

Well, that's nice. Whatever, the existence of Christ wiped out Judaism.

Are you drunk?

No. The Bible is supreme.
Folks who write about it before or after are no better than lame-ass bloggers.
“Jesus was a Jew and His existence begat Christianity.”
And his job title was, “rabbi.” He didn’t create Christianity at all. It was his talmidim (students) who got that started until ancient Rome co-opted the movement and made it their own.
“He made Judaism obsolete, and Rabbis too.”
Torah v1.0 has never been obsolete. If you study with the rabbis you’ll understand why. Torah is forever.
If the rabbis of today are obsolete then your rabbi is, too, because if he was here today among us he would be teaching the same thing!
During his walk on the Earth. There was no Christianity at that time just as there wasn’t Islam.
“Well, that’s nice. Whatever, the existence of Christ wiped out Judaism.”
Nope. Judaism is still here and getting stronger every day. More and more Jews are coming back to Torah just as the Prophets of old said would happen.
“Are you drunk?”
I don’t drink so I’m pretty sure I’m not.
“No. The Bible is supreme.

There’s only one God, one Torah, one Tanakh (Torah, Prophets and Writings aka the Jewish Bible). The New Testament was written AFTER the Tanakh and appended it to it. Think of the New Testament as a replacement Torah/Tanakh. Replacement theology was intended to get rid of Jews and Judaism, but it didn’t work.
Thanks for posting. I love Daniel Lapin.
Actually this is David Lapin the brother of rabbi Daniel Lapin.
Listening to Lecture #1. Brilliant.
Yeppers. Great stuff there. He has lots of other good stuff on his site.
Jesus Christ is GOD!
Deal with it, accept it, and confess it or chance eternal damnation.
There are no modern Rabbis who have anything new to add.
Judaism will never gain you Salvation, the law was a tutor to bring the Israelites us to Christ, that you might be justified by faith, but after yo accept Christ through faith there is no longer any need for the law because Christ fulfilled it.
“Jesus Christ is GOD!”
Might look up John 4:24 that contradicts this.
“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
This is what Jews have believed for 3,000 years.
Here’s a verse from your replacement Torah that backs that up.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
And didn’t your rabbi speak to demons? Reference Luke 11:14
“Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed.”
Are demons physical or of a spiritual nature?
“Deal with it, accept it, and confess it or chance eternal damnation.”
Jews were light years ahead of the game when they told the nations that God isn’t physical but of Spirit (non-corporeal) since the nations believed that their god or gods were physical or half physical and half spirit.
Why put God in a box?
There are no modern Rabbis who have anything new to add.
Study with the rabbis and your opinion will change.
Judaism will never gain you Salvation, the law was a tutor to bring the Israelites us to Christ, that you might be justified by faith, but after yo accept Christ through faith there is no longer any need for the law because Christ fulfilled it.”
The Torah isn’t the law. It is a set of instructions for Godly living. God didn’t make any mistakes when He wrote it since it is perfect because He is perfect. There isn’t a need for Torah v 2.0 or 3.0 or anything like that. It is as applicable today as it was 3,000 years ago as well as 3,000 years from now.
Jews have had salvation from God many times. Just read about it in the Torah, and in the writings, in the Prophets and even in modern times.
