    Here is an article by a man from Uganda that I first read back in 2011, ( I think), and I agree with
    his theory......(even though he certainly does not write in a politically correct manner).

    Thank you for commenting........
    I believe firmly the Rabbi Yeshua - Jesus - Issa participated in a metaphorical Passover event.....
    but in our time period there will be a metaphorical Yom Kippur event....... that will involve two people more so like "goats"
    rather than lambs / sheep.........
    and what they produce will be much more interesting to you.

    Nah we got Yom Kippur every year. Don't really need a metaphorical one that apparently has nothing to do with Yom Kippur anyway.

    Azazel Baalzebub........
    i suspect would tend to differ with you on that idea.

    Rabbi Yeshua - Jesus - Issa.... played out his role for the physical and metaphorical descendants of Abraham......
    but by playing out his role in such an Academy Award winning manner........
    he set up one or more of his followers.......
    to play a role that is even better than that played by Bar Abbas / Barabbas.

    Darth Vader = Azazel = Zeus???

    I have a few questions about the Torah and those parts considered as acceptable by Jews. Which books (I am not sure what the various parts are called after the first five books of Moses) are in the Jewish Torah or Bible.

    Thank you. So are those considered inspired by God and truthful?

    Yes but probably not in the way you think.

    We don't simply read the Torah, we study it. We also don't take everything literally.

    @Tumah or @rosends will be able to explain it better but it's either still Shabbat where they are or already Shavuot.
    You might get the answer you seek Monday night or Tuesday.

    Yes, we believe that those Books were written with various degrees of Prophecy and Divine Inspiration.

    Your question is a little odd though, as it's not clear why you would think that a religious Jew wouldn't believe their own Scriptures. Either you're trying to lead the question somewhere, or you've been misinformed by your religion about Jews.

    One reason is that most of my family is Jewish and I know they think it's mythical, not real. As far as religious goes, they attended synagogue. But I am not in contact with the rabbi any more, I left that area many years ago. I was told at a family Seder when I spoke of the resurrection accounts that the Bible is mythical and their belief is based on tradition, not the Bible. But that was not the reason for my asking.
    My reason for asking is why do you think, since the Books were written with, as you say, various degrees of prophecy and divine inspiration, these books of prophecy and divine inspiration have stopped being written?

    I hear you, but I think it should be obvious that this would be a difference between religious and non-religious Jews.
    Because it became impossible to gain that level of prophecy after the destruction of the First Temple. So only the people who were already prophets at that point, were able to carry on.

    Thank you for your reply. How very interesting. So, Moses began writing somewhere in 1500 BCE, would you agree with that? After all, when I went to synagogue that rabbi (a reform one, if you haven't guessed by now) taught us nothing about the Scriptures themselves, such as when they were written, and things like that. I mean there were festivals and they did reading from the Torah weekly, but I don't remember much instruction about it. Since I find the subject interesting, I hope you won't mind discussing it with me.
