Yes, yes. I understand you cling to the New Testament as a way of explaining the Torah, just as some cling to the Book of Mormon to explain the Christian Bible, and just as some cling to Islam to explain the Christian Bible.

But God told the Jewish people when he gave them the Torah to go to the Kohen or Levite or judge with their questions and then to heed their words exactly (Deut 17).

And God told the Jewish people to ask their ancestors and elders about the proper service of God (Deut 32). He didn’t tell them to ask the gentiles.

Zechariah 8 does not say the Jews will grab a gentile and ask about God, it says gentiles will ask Jews!

You do realize he was speaking about Gentile Pagans don’t you????

That really has nothing to do with my question anyway’s..

None of us born today are from the Ancient World, we are modern people that have the ability to read, research, understand and learn about anything, wether it is Science, Politics or Religion.

I don’t need to go to the President to understand the Constitution of the United States, and I don’t need to go to a Rabbi to learn about what is in the Torah.

I can read...

I don’t mean to be dis-respectful, but I was just asking a question about what Abrahm saw when he looked upon G-d who was outside of his tent.

What is the Christian Bible?

Isn’t the entire Holy Bible written by Jews?

With the exception of *luke* I don’t think a Christian or a Gentile had any say of what was written in the Holy Scriptures....
