I was being honest. You only have to look the book up to see that.your opinion (be honest or don't answer)
In my previous post when I said that Judaism is a religion of interpretation you objected and said that is my opinion.exactly!
but if i say it, you ad the ad hominen as you state here....
No, you had previously rejected my statement that Judaism is a religion of interpretation as my personal opinion and shown that you have no interest in most Jewish texts on the messiah, despite the fact that they represent Jewish perspectives on the messiah, therefore I responded by pointing out how your response minimizes the importance and centrality of the talmud.when i shared the talmut as 'adjudication' of law, didn't that share to you not only has it been observed, but that i also comprehended what it is, personally? (no one else's opinion)
I don't think you're skillful enough to be much a troublemaker, just an ignorant nuisance, and if you actually read authorities on Judaism, you'll find that the word sect is quite regularly rejected as it's not terribly descriptive of Judaism as it is. If you're not willing to accept the authority of Jews to tell you what Judaism is, why bother coming to us at all?again, i use the term 'sect' and rather than just say, they are 'different demonimations'.... you say 'incorrect' as if you are authority. it is your opinion and you have no problem with pushing as if what you think is what the world thinks and i am just a trouble maker
The word sects only applies to some ultra-orthodox groups, but if those are the only groups you'd like to discuss I can say that your statement "interpretation of moses law" isn't quite right. They don't disagree on mitzvah at all, only minhag, and the minhagim they disagree on are acknowledged customs e.g. wearing one type of hat instead of another.So in my words versus yours, the sects are divided by interpretation of moses laws.
And when I provided the most comprehensive English compilation of Jewish primary sources on the messiah you rejected it as you've clearly demonstrated you've no interest in Jewish perspectives on the messiah, only in asserting your own perspectives.and i opened this thread asking for more literature on messiah, within the original forms prior to opinion. (consistantly)
As I said, Judaism is a religion of interpretation. That is one interpretation of Judaism. I also provided you with a second link that had more perspectives on the messiah, including those that reject a personal messiah entirely. I provided you with Maimonides' perspective because he is an important and influential thinker, and as I said before, Judaism's not monolithic. It's a religion of interpretation. There's isn't just one perspective on the messiah or what one should believe. Nor does what you've stated above present any reason why I can't tell you what Judaism is. R' Meir studied with Elisha ben Abuyah even after he cut the shoots.then what business do you have claiming you can define judaism, when there is a precept:
"Whoever does not believe in him, or does not await his coming, denies not only [the statements of] the other prophets, but also [those of] the Torah and of Moshe, our teacher, for the Torah attests to his coming, stating: [Devarim 30:3-5]"
that is not my opinion, it was from the site you pointed me to
No, not per my Judaism. My Judaism is a religion of interpretation where multiple perspectives can exist happily alongside one another.that (per your judaism) tells me, that you are no authority
I don't need to tell you what you think. You show me, and everyone else on this forum, your ignorance every time you post here.Daur, no more telling ME what i think. I know who i am, and capable of standing by what i say.
No, not at all. All I did is reaffirm, through my actions that "I'm more interested in explaining Judaism than my own individual perspective unless someone asks me about my personal views." I don't have any issues sharing Jewish POV's that I disagree with to those who ask. You're looking for an absolute Jewish perspective on the messiah that just isn't there.All you just did was show your lack of comprehending the very material you represent.
so instead of interpretations, the oldest texts and MY OWN interpretations are what I wish to pursue.
Then go do that. It's got nothing to do with Judaism. You can find whatever texts you deem worthy enough of your own interpretations on your own and you'll probably find fewer people telling you that you're wrong about their religion that way.
