Separate fact from fiction on today's thoroughly Jewish Thursday broadcast stage for the line of fire with your host activist and author, international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown your voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution Michael Brown is the director of the coalition of conscience and president of fire school of ministry get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown friends welcome yet another early Jewish state broadcast, I'm not taking calls today to get into some interesting intranet rumors. See if there factor fiction are they rumors are they true and and then we can answer a bunch of questions that I solicited all right. I really solicited them on twitter like I solicited them yesterday and said post them to your post better chance I'll answer them on today's broadcast will be taking calls but all of you with questions will be able to call in tomorrow also a little over an hour from now. So our 15 from now for 15 Eastern time right back on our instructor on YouTube channel will be going exclusive weekly to chat, so feel free to post your YouTube your questions read usually questions on YouTube later today.

Okay, let's let's get into mass is a myth is a true Internet rumor is an amazing tradition that's been passed on of let's let's start with one of these that I don't start answering your 20 questions that I come, come back and do at least one more these okay so the fact that when the disciples came in to the tomb where Jesus had been resurrected that they found the cloths that he had been drafted if they found them folded right so was the reason for this. Minutes from time of Passover. So you'll see this every year on Passover, Easter, the circulates so one website says this Sunapee arrived and went inside. He also noted the linen wrappings lying there while the cloth to cover Jesus had was folded up in line to the side was an important absolutely.

Is it really significant.

Yes, in order to understand the significance of the folded napkin we need to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day.

The folded napkin had to do with the master and servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition when the servant set the dinner table for the master he made sure that was exactly the way the master wanted the table was furnished perfectly and then the servant would wait just out of sight until the master had finished eating servant would not dare touch the table until the master was finished after master was finished eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers and mouth clean his beer.

One of the napkin and toss it onto the table servant with another clue table from those days the water napkin meant I'm finished with the mess get up in the table folded napkin… Despite the servant with Dr. touch the table because the full napkin meant I'm coming back this be my daily during this post Easter season. Jesus Christ is not finished is coming back for his faithful servants within his church and lays out a pastor, that sure that you okay beautiful is that while never knew that is a true doll. No sagging be so sure.

I have searched I have checked with other Jewish scholars. None of us have ever heard of that custom. None of us can find a stitch of support for it. In ancient Jewish literature that would shed light on customs and that day I do not know a single living soul who can provide me with legitimate references on what I've heard, it doesn't hurt doesn't matter how beautiful this does matter what gets passed on here all, there's this amazing story about how pics of Ronald Reagan when he was a boy and he did this and that and and that's why he became the man he became the only promise never happened and just makes him happier. Only promise you can check with every biographer of Ronald Reagan. Every family member of Ronald Reagan. Everyone that knew Ronald Reagan back at that time and whenever the store you could look for everything possible never happened single, but this is like a beautiful, I understand that may be beautiful, but I know of zero backing for zero. I am 99.99999999999% sure that it is a myth summing heard it learned it came up with it thought this gets passed on and it just because now especially the Internet boom overnight. It just as if it's true you say, but I've seen messianic Jews: and did they quote the original sources did they quote the look it up here you'll find it in the Mishnah. Here you'll find it is a lucky midrash or you find it in the Talmud here you'll find it referenced in the writings from Qumran you'll you'll find it in in the super graphical writing your no doesn't exist is been passed on through all passed on for several thousand years.

Nobody ever wrote it down ever. Till now you want your hundred percent because I have not checked every imaginable possible source that exists, and perhaps there is something out there that neither I nor any scholar that I know on the planet is ever seen but it's called 100% sorry to disappoint.

Sorry I let's go over to twitter questions here.

I was struck with this one from Nick Bartz to Jews purposefully destroy healthy societies or is it some kind of lemminglike programming that is beyond their control. He let me answer that ridiculous anti-Semitic question with a question of my own. Do people on twitter destroy their own integrity and credibility by their own choice or do they lemminglike follow anti-Semitic lies when ridiculous question assuming Jews like Moses in Isaiah, Jesus and Paul who destroy healthy societies. Those going to talk about or shoes like famous scientists that come up with cures for polio vaccines save millions of lives conservative thinkers like Dennis Prager were Jewish philanthropists that behind the scenes underwrite causes of compassion around the world, those Jews, the one who taught him a non-time. Other Jews who destroy every side is just this anti-Semitic garbage.

This spread out. The fact is Jews like everybody else. Good points Beth points my joke is Jews like her bales, but more so our strength seemed to be more exaggerated her weaknesses more exaggerated. So depends which Junior talking about outstanding views of the 1800s that had wonderful impacts on the society you are Karl Marx who threw off his Jewishness is which Junior talking about. I was in the past that by but since you posted publicly deserves an answer with public ridicule. All right, let's go to Fred. I recently heard a Jewish rabbi who indicated different Jewish views of the afterlife to include many believe in none. Can you summarize what most leave traditional Jews so those who believe the Bible to be God's word and believe in the authority of rabbinic tradition. They absolutely believe in an afterlife. The emphasis being a future resurrection of the dead to be with God and to follow his laws and commandments study them forever.

They do believe also in a messianic era which will not be an eternal error where the Messiah will set up his kingdom and rule and reign over the people of the world, with Israel as the lead nation in time of peace and righteousness but there will be a final resurrection and there will be eternal life for the righteous.

Now traditional Jews believe that there might be some who were so righteous that they immediately going to God's presence with others. Upon death will go through AAA time of of purging which can last up to 11 months after which they will go to God's presence with the great focuses on the final resurrection. Some believe there are some are so wicked that they will eternally perish, but the idea of eternal hell is not really held to and taught in in Judaism, and even the righteous of of of all the nations will have a part in the world to come. But the majority of Jews worldwide today are not traditional Jews, not religious Jews and many more secular Jews do not believe in the world to come. Many believe there is no afterlife, the less religious the less prone they are to believe in Africa just like your average atheist right is not you believe in afterlife. Obviously not.

Does this physical world is all you have so many secular Jews believe the same way, but there's not as much emphasis put on the afterlife the world to come.

In Jewish teaching as there is in Christian teaching of let's see just looking for the ones posted earliest first decay TJ under God.

Those who condemn Jews because quote the Jews killed Christ do not realize the tens of thousands of Jews followed and supported Jesus as the religious leaders motivated by fear from who push pilot to kill him. TJ would to God that people had that realization would to God that they understood that masses of Jews followed Jesus and recognized him as a prophet but it was the national leadership that rejected him and brought judgment on the nation as a whole.

The fact is, first and foremost, God gave Jesus persons God sent Jesus to die for us is number one, number two Jesus says John 10 no one takes my life. I lay it down. Number three was our sins that nailed him to the cross.

Number four. Jewish leaders handed him over to the Romans. Number five, the Romans crucified, but God gave him. Jesus laid his life down our sins nailed to the cross Jewish leaders turn them over to the Romans. Romans crucified and that's reality. Exhibit the buses, the Jews killed Christ in first Thessalonians 2, Paul is speaking about those Jews who, in the passenger dance.

In particular, killed the prophets rejected Messiah persecuting the persecuting us now with that same bad stream of Judean Jews. It's in the past and is in sitting outside indicting all Jews of all ages is one of the great anti-Semitic Bibles that slid to the bloodshed of many, many Jews through the centuries of let's see Sir goose with the recent time of Yom Kippur just past would you said usually was in Christ you still practice the stable use in those Jewish people practicing don't know Christ what Christ is done for them to judicially we should practice it. They normally practice it in two ways. They practice it in terms of fasting and praying for our people. So using that this data entry. See in the years it is a day of holy introspection, knowing that they are ready forgiven through the cross to the Messiah's death with the use of this day of introspection and any day of prayer and intercession for people.

As for those who practice it and don't know what Messiah is done. It's a day that we really pray for them for their eyes to be open to recognize that with all confessing all the repenting, all all the crying out that they still don't have forgiveness and pray that God would convict the more deeply of their sin recognize the house and realized how race size great day to pray on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown.

Your voice is more cultural and spiritual revolution there again is Dr. Michael Brown thanks for joining us on thoroughly Jewish Thursday in life are not given the phone number out as I'm answering esters that posted yesterday on twitter. I suppose them. The lamps them on today's broadcast and I'm referring to some widely believed traditions that we often hear the Christian or messianic Jewish world and asking, are they factor fiction but a true or are they false. Is it true that many traditional Jews believe in two messiahs, ruling and reigning Messiah surfing beside the answer is yes it is true the first explicit reference to this Messiah son of Joseph. The suffering Messiah is in the Talmud and the tractate Sue call so we, the entire Talmud dimension. So this is through the first. The final compilation of the time about 500 years after the time of Jesus, the bubbly Tums only one reference to other was the Messiah, Messiah, messiahs Sesame David now the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The community there probably Essenes.

They spoke of Miss UK Israel for our own Mr. Carol Israel, the Messiah's plural of Aron and Israel.

There were beliefs in two messiahs of priestly Messiah in a definitive Messiah that priestly Messiah was that a suffering Messiah and those traditions that the Messiah son of Joseph. According to Jewish tradition will fight the wars of the Lord and then suffer and die in the last great war, the Messiah will then raise him from the dead you say this Jewish tradition see his suffering as atoning. Several do most do not.

But there are a few that see his suffering as atoning suffering and other Jewish tradition speak of Messiah son of Joseph, in heaven carrying the weight and burden of of the Jewish people, day by day, and without his suffering psyche carry some of our suffering we could not endure.

Yes, the idea that there's a suffering Messiah and ruling and reigning Messiah, the son, intent, myth, that is true as well known many many books written on the subject right back to twitter questions. Casey, do you think the pre-tribulation pretrip election. The pre-tribulation rapture view is anti-Semitic. No, I don't, but there is a theology that puts the curses on the Jews that plays into this. Let me explain the with the rise of dispensationalism in the 1800s. The preacher rapture view brought with it prayers for the restoration of the Jewish people Israel, and you can read books written by pretrip teachers in the early 1900s, and they're talking about the physical restoration of the Jewish people back to the land. So in those ways is Ray Philo Semitic and so the God not forsaken the Jewish people. In fact it saw the church age is a parenthetical age. God dealing with Israel. Israel rejects Messiah in the kingdom. Now God deals with the nations. That's the church age. And when the church is taken out.

God deals with the nations. Susan God deals with Israel again in the kingdom comes to Israel and the Jewish people will be safe.

So in that way it's Philo Semitic and some of Israel's best friends today are evangelical Christians who believe in the preacher rapture.

But there's another side to it, which is a concerning side leg and we have to believe whatever Scripture says unemployment preacher rapture clemency taught in the Bible right now because the implications of it. I just don't see taught in the Bible, but I did my first fiercest in the Lord. The rest of the more deeply I concluded it wasn't there. You want to dig more on that. Watch the debate with pastor Derek Walker does the Bible teacher pretrip relation rapture son asked her to run YouTube channel on the Esther to run Facebook page link. Of course, on Esther to round out or website and get both sides get both sides if you want just my side with Prof. Craig Keener get about not afraid of the antichrist. What we don't believe in the pre-tribulation rapture. But here the.

The two big problems with the pre-tribulation view one. It's saying that we are praying for all the Jewish people come back to the land where they will be slaughtered. That's one problem to were praying, since all come back to the land and then there's gonna be some the worst of the Holocaust that takes place two thirds will be slaughtered. That's what actually similar to the Holocaust. Two thirds of European Jews, but some say the overall suffering will be the worst so that creates a bit of a problem. All were praying for you to come back to the Lancet can all be slaughtered Monday. The other problem is high on the church gets to feast in heaven for seven years. Why well because the church is not appointed to wrath, but the Jews are so the church enjoys the blessings of heaven will the Jews get started on your best problematic memo announcing the scriptural number two. This problematic for the recent but inherently see this anti-Semitic. I see see this theological error that can that can be anti-Semitic but is more of a theological error in keeping with the idea the Jews get Kirsten Christians get blessed so that there are problems with it but most pretrip Christians pray for Israel. Believe there's a bus future for Israel. We should stand with Israel. So I think they haven't fully thought through the implications of that peppermint Tom peppermint mom peppermint mom how easy is make it more difficult peppermint mom asked what is the prophetic sick significance of our Bee Gees death on the Jewish holy day. So there.

There are two sides to this.

The two sides to this one.

The fact that it is attention-getting. It is known true. On the day of the trumpet blasts the shofar blasts Jewish tradition is rush rush in the beginning of the year and this trumpet blast is it is a call to repentance and a wake-up call. So to to die in the time between that shofar. Blessed be heard in Israel then be heard in different parts of America's unit with the time differential that's like an oh my God moment a memory exactly where I was.

I was there in Nashville, Tennessee with my friend Ward Simpson.

We are in the green room is called the back room getting ready for me to go on Mike Huckabee's TV broadcast. And someone says of you heard Ms. Betty Ginsberg.what, at that moment. What. So it's massively attention-getting. Now if you thought that repeated Ginsberg was an extraordinarily courageous, saintly woman fighting for women's rights and was there for a righteous woman even though she was not a religious Jew, then you would see the significant because of the idea that when a Jew dies at a time like this, it means that they were a tzaddik. They were a righteous person so that that she would be a sub because a righteous woman and this would be the proof of it obviously will I admire her tenacity and appreciate much of what she did for women.

I categorically differ with many of the decisions she made in that part of the legacy that she left.

Okay bro apologist. My question is any chance of you dialoguing with Ben Shapiro regarding why believe Jesus is the Messiah apologist, many, many, many have asked this question. I'm sure the vestiges of been as well. I know folks that work closely with Ben-Ami. We know each other a little, but I know folks that were closely with them every day and I reached out to him a few years ago I shot him an email and I said hey you probably don't want to do this but I get asked about this constantly. How would you feel about public dialogue or debate on Jews who believe Jesus is the Messiah is Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, which Jews believe about the Messiah and wrote me back immediately. Respectfully thanking me and saying no thanks.

I don't enjoy religious debates.

I don't think that been in the least bit for a split second is afraid of the topic in terms of the content or that he be afraid to dialogue with me, or debate now so I don't think for a split second that he be ducking this but for whatever reason. Up to now yes want to do that either. It's what he said he does not enjoy religious debates in the middle talk with an atheist about things, but biology is not getting to those debates is by having dialogue civil want to have dialogue with you as a messianic Jew don't know but I feel confidence that it is ducking at he's afraid to okay or that his argument platform by gods grace have a partner. He's got an amazing platform so he be putting on his platform. In that regard. I don't think that's it. If I do speculate maybe he because he works so closely with evangelical Christians and respects them. He does not want to have a discussion that could seem divisive in that regard. Maybe, but maybe system like that rather not look he has enough notoriety. Now he probably gets thousand people a day that you should debate this week to discuss this issue. Dialogue with this, but it could have one day if it's the Lord's will.

I'm confident that I'd love to do it they be awesome to me very very instructive and helpful, but for whatever reason, not at the moment of let's see G Dawn REL. Pierce is usually the question the believers in Jesus who gives you space to not believe in them have a theological New Testament leg to stand on sir if you mean give space not to believe in terms of hey I can't force you, put you under pressure try to coerce you base my love on how you respond or you new work this out between you and God will that's the New Testament. What you don't force the face down somebody's throat.

You don't base Rob Gregory a friend if you don't believe for what love youwith coercion, pressure siphon, the Holy Spirit, putting people under pressure to change their hearts know we we stand against that sin against the forced work of the church of the passion of forcing conversions.

If you mean gives you space to say hey if you don't believe in Jesus, that's fine. You can have eternal at just the same.

You can reject him as the Messiah, but by obedience to strong keeping Jewish tradition have eternal life.

You can go be with the Lord forever. Just the same as me.

Even if you reject Jesus. They have a theological leg to stand on the test now forced the cave was on first is another way to be saved across the gospel. Max goes to first lesson and then gives the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH dear again is Dr. Michael Brown is the Jewish music that you hear reminds us, it is thoroughly Jewish Thursday not taking calls today, but oh what about 40 minutes from now 45 minutes from now we will be doing our exclusive weekly YouTube chat. So join me, and asked her to run SK dear Brown on YouTube for 15 Eastern time and if you want to ask a question during the show you couldn't because you can: of them go ahead and and out and posted on YouTube and will answer then has that the course phone lines open tomorrow doubling so that's the plan right join me on YouTube or calling tomorrow and that way saying that I was about to give out the phone number talk about habit. Yeah so I'm answering questions that repost yesterday on Twitter enforcement as I can in the order that they were posted some just looking nosy.

The Excimer hours are going to try to try to do that okay but but I will first deal with subject of her visit Internet myth is a truth which is when Jesus said about us, no one knows the day or the hour that he didn't actually mean so much dates setting and and speculation about counting days, and things were rather he was referring to the fact that young true the day of the sounding of the trumpet Russian on Jewish tradition, the new year that he was referring to the fact that no man knows the day or the hour of that and is coming is tied in with that because you had a weight. It was the one holiday because it comes the first day of the year sees me the first day of the month right the first day of the seventh month as a pastor was the 14th day of the first month and and your before the 10th day of the seventh month and and Sukkoth The 15th day of the seventh month writer or or shovel vote Pentecost feast of weeks, falling 50 days after day, and pestilence.

So this is the one which is the beginning of the month and you don't know exactly the beginning the month this until you gotta cite them improperly and no one knows they're the hour that was the Jewish way of referring to young true law is that fact or fiction, fiction set can be you be so sure I saw messianic Jew talk about Jewish tradition and in this absent how Christian teachers talk about hey with all respect, I cannot find a single ancient source.

I cannot find a single Jewish tradition in Jewish law codes in traditional commentaries anything anywhere that would have any authority in Judaism over a period of 1500 years. I cannot find any reference drunk draw there the day of the shofar blasts any of the trumpet first and seventh month anywhere where this tradition is associated with that they said no one knows the day or the hour.

Now you say to me are you fluent in all rabbinic tradition over 1500. No, no, no, no, it's a massive amount as a massive amount. There is what's called the motel mode. The Sea of the Talmud because the rabbinic literature. So vast and massive and expansive; how can you speak with such authority. One, you can look for specific things you look for everything you can find.

I have whole books just on Jewish tradition and the Jewish holy days. It so you can research their right knee is Elgin not looking everywhere but you looking key places but that's not enough. So I reached out to rabbinic scholars who know this stuff, like the back of the hand spend their entire life must out of the womb. Learning these things and I asked them, and none of them ever heard this reference. None of them ever in their lives and anything they studied in any other, and in any of their studies through all of their loss ever heard this referred to young draw restriction as this, a time when the holiday when no one knows the day or the hour. So let me just put this out okay you held to the street. You believe you've even taught show me the rabbinic sources should show me the rabbinic literature. Don't quote to me from another book of another Christian teacher messengers teacher number is not in the Bible and guarantee that I can guarantee you it's on the bottom all the other thing I studied every major Matthew commentary I could find. When this phrase comes up or when ever.

This is mentioned in the Gospels. I studied every major commentary can find in everything we do is backup whole compilations of just five volumes just Jewish background to New Testament five times in German. I went through all of that and found nothing to corroborate this whatsoever.

You think you got the sources please show me, send them to me right for website say here's the sources in the Talmud in the Mishnah in in in the Mishnah tour.

Initial, Ruth and Rashi's commentary in and see Friday and the filter will find it for me okay find it for me. Show me and that all publicly get up and share the sources all right back to twitter is a or just burst my bubble died and gone through three traditions today to Internet myth, monster.

So there we go okay on that guy match on what basis do Jews neglect observing the Old Testament law are the records keep every bit of it. Even if the temples only hear what about stoning adulterers, or of the laws that are no longer observed. So, great question that Christians believe in the Old Testament and the new correct traditional Jews believe in the Old Testament and rabbinic tradition. They believe that God gave them an oral law just as much as they believe God gave them a written law. They believe God gave Moses traditions orally on Mount Sinai that explain the oral law. The written law and key principles of interpretation of the written law and they believe those of been passed down and developed new generation, and then put in writing ultimately and they continue to be developed as new questions come up and rabbis have to give rulings on new issues, then that becomes written and this becomes part of it. So it's an ongoing stream of tradition so as the church during James Parks was observed to be an exact quote, but it's close that that Judaism is no more the religion of the Old Testament than Catholicism is the religion of the New Testament.

If you ask a Roman Catholic what you do that it's on the Bible or what we have by church tradition. We consider this to be authoritative so that's Otis with rabbinic Judaism.

So one thing is you can't do certain things traditional Jew, but from the moment he wakes up in the morning to the moment he goes to sleep, a devoted traditional view is whole. Concentration is on keeping the commandments is to be like anybody else. My savings living on his faith is whole concentration traditional Jewish woman that's all concentration, keep the commandments keeping the law honoring the Lord doing this during the to the most minute things here when I spend young people were day of atonement with kebabs for sedum ultra-Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn, New York in 1975. At that time it was his fault on October I suffer from hayfever used it used to get than in the fall. The shift to the spring. It's been pretty well gone but anyway I can have them for so I'm I'm at the house even though it wasn't a Saturday, is considered a holy Sabbath reports day when you don't do any physical or so I'm grimacing to shoes to put my pocket to walk across the street to the synagogue and the gentleman with one stance is all all you can carry Sabbath you can carry Tony Tisch tissue tissue is pretty light this to his tissues are very light. I can carry that. I did get facetious with them slick again.

This is no adore their pre-ripped tissues in the bathrooms and pre-ripped there because it's considered work to tear.

This is the detail with which a traditional Jew seeks to live his life pleasing God. Every last little detail so they would joyfully be part of offering blood sacrifices, but without a template. You can't do it without a functioning Sanhedrin you don't have a death penalty. So, in the absence of these things.

Other traditions have been developed. I would challenge Mavis traditions have a whole volume by five answering Jewish objections to Jesus right right respectfully challenge the authority of those traditions, many of them are beautiful as neutral as I differ with the authority of those traditions that I challenge one. Anything but Jewish tradition is develop certain things just like so consider us while you stone adulterers that's Old Testament law will New Testament tells us if it's in the in the body and in the church and they committed adultery. She's repent we excommunicate so we had our traditions based on the teaching of Jesus by the spirit of what's been given to us. Judaism has its traditions, joyous concerning church history. What is been the Christian attitude or disposition towards Jews. Often it's been anything but Christian read my book the new edition, our hands are stained with blood.

The tragic story of the church and the Jewish people. It's a painful story. Christians of often treated Jews as lower-class as the steel they have been demonized. They have been looked at as the worst of unbelievers. They have been looked at as just worldly sinners, tragic to see which demonizing of the Jewish people was done by the church. You take the worst denunciations of the profits of the worst denunciations of Jesus and those who take is that that describes all Jews as opposed to the hypocritical leaders and others that were being targeted now. Thankfully, there been many Christians that have had compassion on the Jewish people and the suffering that a pray for them and sacrifice for them and in the beautiful eyes for them. But tragically alter any of not your average human history was more use to the attitude of the Nazis wanted to exterminate them and drive them out, as opposed to the attitude of the righteous Gentiles were willing to lay their lives down from Jews through history to church history have been much more use to Christian hostility that is not truly Christian and Christian love, which truly is. Again, if you haven't read our hands are stained with blood try to destroy the church and Jewish people really urge you to read and spell most translated book and was in print continuously for 27 years before we put out the second expanded edition let's see Darth calculus cannot meet me back up to this one. Rachel is right, for Gentile believers to criticize depressed usually was for keeping the fees choosing to retell the permits etc. usually resurrected from the heart of genuine worship not really just wrote yes it is no limit as US know it is not right for Gentile believers to criticize depressed if these Jewish believers are Yeshua centric and walking in freedom and believe that in solidarity with their people that these are customs that should be followed and that God never change the feast in the holy days. It is wrong for Gentile believers to criticize the and conversely for Jewish believer to criticize a Christian who worships on Sunday and celebrates the day is resurrection day and said to the saddest Sabbath. God never commanded the 77,007 Adamczyk Romans 14 is the operative rule written in particular in particular, written in the context of Jewish and Gentile the working out their faith in other side by side on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown says Maxim is rejoining us on early Jewish Thursday Michael Brown not taking your calls at reason tell you exactly what we've done today is yesterday Wednesday for radio one on Twitter and that I know is a little easier for us to control number was. I go on our Facebook page that the flood of responses to overwhelming elicit heavier, but usually the question answered on tomorrow's show and then after radio I went right back to twitter and and and answered the questions then, so whoever posted the first like four hours earlier.

That was the first we got three hours earlier to in and if we get the two hours or so that's that's overdoing or put them up on the screen so Darth Darth calculus you may have had the very first question. My mom was born to Jewish friend that my dad wasn't and I also Jewish by birth was under the impression that was passed on maternally in the try was paternal.

If so, do I have a tribe number one according to Jewish tradition, your jurisdictional dispute that simple Jewish tradition says was Jewish.. Now is that the biblical mentality.

You can make a case that it's passed on paternally rather than maternally reformed Jews so liberal Jews will often say if either mother or father Jewish Jewish my best approach is if your mother or father Jewish and you raised with a consciousness of being a Jew than you should consider yourself to now traditional Judaism debates different if a Jew becomes a follower of Jesus, of the still Jewish or the converted another religion. That's another debate. But yes any traditional Jew on the planet. If you say most use the civil and you Jewish okay do you have a tribe yeah, but who knows where this in less you have a last name like Cohen or Levi which case you got a good likelihood of being a Levi. Specifically Cohan, a priest and that can also be confirmed by DNA or likelihood you know there's some question about Davidic and it ancestry and being able to trace ones back in DNA and otherwise we really don't know what tribe or from the we don't know.

I could theoretically be any of the call because the before the 10 northern tribes were destroyed, many of them had a ready come south of been part of the kingdom of Judah and and then others. In temerity, others lost to history. But then others just becoming part of the larger Jewish community.

So we don't gonna know a tribe and from but I'm 90% Ashkenazi to temper since Friday (I know chosen ministries. What is the word as their meaning the original ancient Hebrew texts or is there is ours to help so helper so Genesis 2 because you give the man a dominant, as there can they go it's it's a helper like his officer so helper that would be the right counterpart spaceman overlord is that your original name reset perhaps to twitter handle funnier spaceman are assessed safe with Darth calculus. Okay, what is the best Old Testament commentary you know of that comprehends the Jewish context who woo that's a hard one. That's a hard one. Okay number one. The Jewish context you mean than the ancient Israelite context so many fine commentary series today Christian and Jewish right with the understanding of the ancient Israelite context, so be it.

A critical series like anchor Bible, be it a more conservative series like new international commenter in the Old Testament were slightly less conservative of the word Word Biblical commentary or critical commentary like Herman Naya Mina so many they would be looking at the Old Testament in the light of in light of the ancient near Eastern context in ancient Israelite context. Now, just like I do in my dream I commentary the new edition of the expositor's Bible commentary was. I do my Job commentary as I'm doing on the essay I commentary them just the early stages, but if I was looking for Old Testament commentary written by Jews that also tie in with Jewish tradition that I would get the new Jewish publication Society series. Downside is not the whole Bible is the five books of Moses it some select books like Esther, it's that the half corrodes the supplemental readings from the Scriptures in the synagogues, but if I was reading one row wanted to get the ancient context, then, also Jewish, traditional interpretation than that would be that place. So go the new GPS countersuit, but again it's it's some of the whole Bible.

And I try to do that. My own commenters, Jeremiah, Job and Isaiah to to also bring in Christian interpretation and Jewish interpretation of Stephen. What is the last day the great day of the feast of Tabernacles. The seventh day, or eighth day. Thanks. It's actually a question that is a little bit debated know was there 1/8 day that was added on.

So if if I if I was confused about the subject and I was trying to. This can I go to one source just one place that would answer the question then I would go to Craig Keener's IV B IV P Bible background commentary.

I was the commenters on John will get into this, but I would go to that I have that on on Lagos.

I own the physical copy as well affect. I called up on Lagos and on just frozen here. It's not not coming up for some reason Rob is not coming up is redoing my radio show is just look at me to get the load.

There comes here comes that may take a while before it lets me access but that's my go to place when I'm looking for Jewish background on the New Testament in one volume is all the major scholarly New Testament commentaries will get into that okay of God's the if I want to get one finally gets into all of it.

Now here's another place that I might go walk Paul by some of the sulfurous loading I would go to Reiko Bob is a traditional Jewish websites acetic Jewish website.

Followers of the late Lubavitcher heavy document of Schneerson and I would put out last day of Sukkoth right so I'm searching their website and calendar had a sobered Sukkoth and Kokomo aid intermediate festival days Sukkoth and some cut to raw and list to see here okay is this some video keepers behind us. We focus on the traditions of the upcoming holiday Sukkoth is four days between gnocchi particular characterized by frenetic activity. So you gotta build the sukkah and all of that and then it's going through each day so you got the first day of Sukkoth second day of Sukkoth. This is Jewish tradition third day of Sukkoth fifth day of Sukkoth and Torrance get to that. Let's get to the end here seventh day of Sukkoth right and this is then considered to be the the last day. The question is there anything supplemental and that Sweeney had separate rights, many inserts and cuts her off.

This is now the additional celebration that spoken of so you can look that up. Shalini ought separate some contour last day of Sukkoth was follows his own information relevant to preparations for the holiday for me at Sarah@and on and on. Anyway, look it up your funny info there. Okay, now that I've got that I got Lagos open up the need to take so much time of art that you can answer this like I was doing to you to chat where I say let's let's discover this together as opposed to live radio you like, I get to the point man gets more questions, so I'll pull up a Craig Keener says in a moment, but Ryan S. Even if the oral law followed by Jesus is divine is argued in one of your books is their tremendous value and following it in a reasonable way, given that it creates cohesion for the Jewish people of the words without it we will be assimilated into oblivion. Thanks, Ryan Gray, question number one goggles how to keep us so God may have use laws and traditions to keep us just like you use Catholic monks to preserve copies of Scripture, but I don't believe in monasticism or Catholicism right in the same way God use the Jews during the preserve Hebrew Bible and God use the traditions to preserve our people, but in the Lord.

We have to sort out what works best if it were some of the traditions are contrary to life in the spirit contrary to the gospel so that has to be worked out that it could well be that that this is something that we we find very helpful to keep and observe or for which our lifestyle and we live in a community like that but we don't want to do it just to put on some outward garment to make us us with more juice to others. That's merely part of our life something helpful, useful, edifying and and again it's gotta be an individual choice for me to do it would be a somewhat superficial. In other words, it would be be putting on something that's not really who I am and in addition to that, it would be of something that in certain ways would be contrary to my understanding of life in the spirit and with that, with a few seconds left in the broadcast I finally get the software to respond. Having typed also in the wrong box and it freezes on the right here so I can tell you with crankiness is on John 737 and 38 yeah with all the set up in the mystery in the waiting, but here's the good news 15 minutes from now will be back on YouTube and I tell you right there on YouTube a Craig Keener says, but John seven 3732 jointly with your live questions at all times all background.
