    The Real Circumcision Questions - At Least in My View

    Since the question about whether circumcision, of babies, has been asked several times in several different threads I have a different set of questions in this regard that I think hasn't really been addressed.

    Takeaways from the first Tablet of the Tabernacle of Unity concerning interfaith dialogue

    Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and centre your deliberations on...

    Was Paul Jewish?

    A couple of days ago I chanced upon a video of a lecture (in Hebrew) by an Israeli historian named Yigal Bin-Nun. The lecture was about the start of Christianity as an organized religion (post-Jesus). I didn't watch everything, but at some point he opined that Paul was not actually born Jewish...

    Genesis 18:10

    What does כעת חיה mean? Next time? Next year? An appropriate time? What is the structure: a noun and an adjective or two nouns? What is the physical positioning of Sarah, Abraham, the tent opening, and the tent in this description? Is Sarah on the outside secretly listening in on a conversation...

    So... I am a recovering Catholic. Lifetime seeker. Several times I've seriously considered converting to one religion or another, ultimately always returning to the faith tradition of my upbringing. Last year, totally unexpectedly, I woke up one day and started to doubt again. I started to...

    OT ritual by Jesus and his disciples is missing in the New Testament prior to crucifixion. Why?

    It struck me as strange that there are no accounts of Jesus or his disciples making animal offerings at the temple. The old covenant was still in effect because Jesus hadn't ascended yet and from my understanding it is taken that Jesus and his disciples were Jewish. I found it strange that...

    Does Jesus's sacrafice work from a jewish perspective?

    Does the idea of Jesus sacrificing himself make sense from a jewish theological perspective? I personally don't think the idea of a god man sacrificing himself to himself for things he put in us himself makes no sense but that that is beside the point. Can a man die for another man's or indeed...

So we're looking for a change of pace. My intention is to read through the entire Christian bible in either 7 or 10 days. I...

    Qur'an (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]” Qur'an (24:31) - Women are to lower their gaze around men, so they do not look them in the eye. Qur'an (4:24) and Qur'an (33:50) - A man is permitted to take women as sex slaves outside of marriage. Women aren't as intelligent as...
