  1. Apparently what you know of the PharIsees and the Sadducees would fit into a thimble and still leave room for your finger. Of course, I could be wrong and you've actually spent a considerable amount of time studying both and are prepared to discuss at length - and please feel free to take as much space as is necessary - and in detail, the research that lead you to your present conclusions.
  2. The English word "priest" does not mean bridge. And the Hebrew word "kohayn" does not mean bridge either.
  3. Putting aside the issue that neither is G-d a male, apparently you have never read Jewish scripture, the Tanakh, what you would probably call the Old Testament, in Hebrew. As best as I recall, there is only one instance where a female pages deity is referred as a deity. In that instance the Tanakh uses the same word to refer to her as is used to refer to G-d - elohey.
  4. What a hate filled site you referenced.
  5. Before saying anything else I must say I'm curious. You've previously written that you are a Pagan so why this attempt at Christian prayer? What are you trying to accomplish?

    Hebrew Roots

    Hebrew Roots is a Christian movement.

    You may be waiting quite awhile for a reply. It's now more than 8 years since the poster last signed on to the forum.
  8. The Sarducci, as in Guido??? Independent of how they are portrayed in Christian scripture, what do you really know about the Sadducees and the Pharisees?

    Here's an experiment, Phillipe - Take a chair and break the legs off. Advertise that you have four chairs to sell. See how many takers you get. You can then let us know the results

    Sufficiency of Scripture

    And here I've been concerned that I might appear too brusque. Sheesh! Now I'm going to have redo my response. Thanks guys. (The spotlight follows the rabbi as he slowly exits stage right, all the while muttering under his breath.)

    Sufficiency of Scripture

    Mindful of my role as a member of this community and mindful of my responsibility as a mentor I have been wrestling with the right words to use to respond to the OP - words that would reach the OP and would not be seen as hurtful and uncharitable. I'm not sure those words exist, but the path these threads have been following demand I say something. Shabbat is approaching and, again, there is the expectation that I will be in the synagogue for services, so again I ask your indulgence until the end of the Sabbath. L'shalom.

    Feed Your Frankenstein

    I never said you are anti-Semitic. Re-read my post. I do not debate religion for a variety of reasons that I believe I have set forth in the past. If I need to do it again I will. However, I will respond when Jews, Jewish history, or Judaism are maligned or misrepresented. You have done both to all three.... Even if only out of ignorance. And so you and I are not quite done. However,, Shabbat and Pesach fast approach and further conversation will have to wait until after the weekend.
  13. For all those who celebrate Pesach (Passover), I wish you each and all, your households and all those you hold dear, a joyous Pesach, a happy and kosher holiday.

    Feed Your Frankenstein

    I don't know if you're simply ignorant.....and arrogant..... or whether you're anti-Semitic, knowingly or not. As you're fairly new, I will give you the benefit of the doubt.
  15. After all these years who would have thought I'd have to say this, but apparently some people have missed all the clues. Putting aside all the posts in which I have identified myself as both a Jew and a seminary trained rabbi and putting aside all the posts In which I discussed Jewish points of view and putting aside all the posts in which I have discussed variances between the Hebrew of the Jewish scriptures - which some refer to as the Old Testament,- and how they are translated into English, there remain these - my member name, RabbiO, which happens to be what some of the kids call me; the Hebrew under my member name; my avatar which shows Krusty the Clown standing next to his father the rabbi.... you know, the fellow wearing the kippah and tallit and standing before an open Torah scroll. I am not a Catholic nor am I any other type of rChristian. I am not a Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh, Satanist, Muslim. I respect those who walk those and other paths, but those are not the paths that I travel on. So once again, for the record, I am a Jew and a rabbi. L'shalom.
