  • (Video) Nehemia Gordon - Pope Benedict's Theological Three Card Monte

    In the game "Three Card Monte," the dealer moves around three cards very quickly to confuse the players. The cards are identical on the outside, but underneath only one is the sought-after queen. In his Papal directive from 2008, Pope Benedict XVI admits that it is advantageous for Catholic theology to avoid using the Tetragrammaton. The ambiguous term "Lord" makes it possible through exegetical sleight of hand to reinterpret Old Testament verses that speak about "Yehovah" (or "Yahweh") as referring to Jesus.

    THE DEAD BABY MEDIA If the text on that one is too small for you, it's a CNN piece headlined, "Why the Syrian regime is killing babies." There's not much to add to that. The Syrian regime may be killing babies, but CNN killed journalism. With some help from the New York Times, the Washington Post and the BBC. Anyone who has spent time in the Middle East knows quite well that parading around dead bodies is part of the Muslim ceremony of rallying for the next attack. These aren't funerals, these are corpse parades and the corpses are often...
  • Scholars seek to correct 'mistakes' in Bible (seems above-board & sincere)

    A dull-looking chart projected on the wall of a university office in Jerusalem displayed a revelation that would startle many readers of the Old Testament: The sacred text that people revered in the past was not the same one we study today. An ancient version of one book has an extra phrase. Another appears to have been revised to retroactively insert a prophecy after the events happened. Scholars in this out-of-the-way corner of the Hebrew University campus have been quietly at work for 53 years on one of the most ambitious projects attempted in biblical studies — publishing the authoritative...

    I wonder if y'all could help me with this. Are the targums considered Scripture by Jews? How do they compare with the text of the Tanakh? Thanks

    Kehot Publication Society ^ | July 7, 2011 | Rabbi Yosef B. Friedman
    [From an e-mail:] Dear Friends, In this week's parsha, Balaam blesses and praises the Jewish people. Following are two insights into one of his praises, selected from the Kehot Chumash. He does not look at evil in Jacob, and sees no perversity in Israel; G-d, their G-d, is with them. The reason G-d does not look at the evil "in Jacob" is because He looks at the Jew as having already fulfilled his potential to reorient the animal concerns of his consciousness (his animal "soul") toward Divinity. He thus transforms the animal soul into a positive force in his Jewish...
  • Hamas’ win: historical revisionism, a dark reality, but a little hope

    Hamas' victory in Palestinian parliamentary elections is already being sanitized by the politically correct, despite the terrorist group's bloody track record and its fallacious and dubious historical claims to the land of Israel. Thankfully, some Western leaders are condemning the selection of murderers by Palestinians for their government. At the top of a BBC article yesterday regarding the Hamas terrorist group winning Palestinian elections: The win poses problems for efforts to restart peace talks with Israel, say analysts. Israel insists it will not deal with an authority including Hamas. So this is all just Israel's problem/fault because the majority of...
  • On abortion, a Jewish compromise

    On abortion, a Jewish compromise IRWIN N. GRAULICH Mar. 14, 2004 If you are looking for a good compromise on the difficult question of abortion, don't look to Roe v. Wade but to Israel. There is only one intelligent, just, ethical position on abortion and it happens to be the Torah viewpoint.Unfortunately, over 95 percent of Jews and non-Jews are totally ignorant of it. Scholars on the Left will attest that the Bible, Israeli law and the US Constitution are definitely pro-choice and protect a mother's health. Those equally learned on the Right will swear that these same great documents...
