Post pictures that you like that have something to do with your religion
(A lot of folks like this particular avatar, I've noticed, even though it's from here Taking Haredi Suicide Out Of The Shadows – The Forward and that's half why I chose it).
I know there are some Pagans here who have, par example, fertility Gods who have certain features (you know what I'm talking about) and if you want to post those, please put them in spoilers. Thanks.
This is in Q&A so is intended only for Jews!
I have five questions:
1) I've heard of what is often called the "Judaeo-Christian tradition" but is there really such a thing? If so, to what extent? I know Christians talk about this, but what about Jews? - basically, is the notion a Christian one, with nothing to do with Judaism?
Because that's the impression I've got
Also, according to your beliefs/understanding:
2) Did Christianity develop out of Judaism?

Many people especially in religious settings speak about the miracle done by someone in the past, or even today.
But what is actually a miracle?
To me, miracles are not something supernatural miracles are actually something most of us experiences every day or week, But we do not see it as a miracle, because what is a miracle has become natural to humans today.

He was also nicknamed by the Romans "King of the Jews", same title that was on Christ's cross and assigned to Jesus of Nazareth.
Are you a Superherod? (Are you in...
I saw today something interesting. One of the greatest academic Talmud scholars of the last century was Prof. Yaakov Nachum Epstein. In his book "Introductions to the Tannaitic Literature", pg. 280-281, he discusses shortly the laws of Shabbat as described in the gospels. He lists them and then compares them to Talmudic literature to ascertain how accurate the NT's claims are. I'll admit, some of the things were new to me. Well, I'm not a halachic expert. Here's a summary of his points...
Genesis 1 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
I was taught in church that the “us” was proof of the Trinity. Those who don’t believe in the Trinity, who are the “us” in this verse? I’m curious
What do you as a person gain from making criticizing other people's religions or worldviews?
Is it important for you to get your own opinion and view across?
Or is your criticism a sign of being curious but not knowing how to ask so both you and the one you question can feel good about the discussion?
