    The Unconquerable City

    There is a city that i learned about in Jewish teachings called Luz. This city was unconquerable and every kingdom that tried to conquer them inevitably failed. We learn that this city was given special protection by G-d which is why none could conquer it. Luz is located in what was once the...

    The Importance of Correct/Accurate Terminology in Discussing Torah/Yahaduth

    I plan on making this into a reference thread. That way I don't have to repeat the same information or better yet allow me to refer others to this. The first point I would like to make is about the English term "Hebrew" and how it can be confused some incorrect "westernized" concepts. There was...

    Historical evidence for the Torah

    The first 5 books marks the foundation of the 3 greatest monotheistic religions, yet there is only archealogical evidence for everything from Judges onwards, how do we weigh this up?

    Do Torath Mosheh and Orthodox Jews know who is a Jew, according to Hebrew Tanakh?

    Recently, a challenge has been made about whether or not it is possible to identify who is really a Jew. The reality is that among Torath Mosheh and Orthodox Jews there has never been a problem in identifying who is a Jew. The reason is very simply. The definition of such was first provided by...

    Is it true that Torath Mosheh/Orthodox Jews think halakha is complete and unalterable?

    In order to answer this question, the first consideration would be "What is halakha?" The hebrew term (הלכה) comes from the Hebrew root (ה-ל-ך) meaning "walking; moving towards a goal." Thus, halakha is defined as the process of practice, tradition, rulings, etc. that relates to how Torath...

    Why Torah based Jews would be unconvinced

    "If that is what you consider to be true then why does it matter to you what we Jews say?" That is the question I often want to ask when threads are started as if they are asking questions to Jews when instead what is being posted is a statement or manifesto. That is not to say that some people...

    The Gospel and the Torah, the Quran, Christian, Bahai, and other apologetics.

    In a nutshell, the Quran mentions the Gospel (Injeel), the Torah (Thaurath), and of course other scripture as well. But like a famous advertisement most of us would have these two top of mind, which probably is the reason these two are cited more often. Christian evangelists and Apologists...

    ABRAHAMICS ONLY: The Tree called the knowledge of good and evil, (Genesis: a closer look) continued.

    In Genesis 2:16-17 it is written: 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. If we look at...

    Genesis 3: A height of Blasphemy; a hoary lie.

    This is continuation of our study; a deeper look into the events of the Garden of Eden. in Genesis 3, it is written: And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live...

    Paul, the Pentateuch, the Tanakh: Conflict or reconciliation

    Since Jewish and Gentile followers of Jesus are now equal members of the family of God and therefore one people, Paul argues that Jesus put an end to the requirement of adherence to the Torah or Law, not only for Gentiles but also for Jews. That means Torah takes a backseat to Jesus—for Jews and...

    Simple Reasons Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus and Christianity

    There have been several threads recently where questons have come up as to: Why do Torah based Jews not accept Chrisitian scriptual interpretation? Why do Torah based Jews not Jesus as a/the Messiah? Why is there a divide between "Judaism" and "Christianity?" It is hope that in this post these...

    Questions about (כשוף - קסם - חבר - חרש) Types of Avodah Zara

    Concerning the "wise men" of Pharaoh: According to Saadya Gaon in his commentary to the Torah he mentions (דבר הנעשה בחשאי ובהסתר) i.e. essentially slight of hand tricks. Also, mentioned in Emunoth and Deoth book 3 section 5 that they did things that were (כפא מסתורא אדא כשף) hidden to make...

    The Pentateuch and its sources, is it one, four, or more?

    If I may, if not all, most adherents of the Jewish faith, the Christian faith, and to a lesser degree, the Islamic faith (I dont know to what degree) believe that the Pentateuch or the first five books of the Tanakh or as the Christians called it, the Old Testament was one mans work. I will...

    In Short - The Noachide/7 Mitvahs an explaination

    Carried over from a question in another thread. Questions came up about the Noachide "movement." This explaination may give a better insight to what is meant by a Noachide. According to Torah and Halakha Adam was given 6 mitzvoth by Hashem. The 7th mitzvah was given during the generation of...
