  Click here for previous reading     So Abraham was a Hebrew, in a time when the term Jew did not even exist. The descendants of Jacob were the Twelve Tribes of the Israelites, and only Judah and his line came to be known as Jews. Even Moses, despite popular opinion, was not a Jew. Exodus 6:16­20 identifies Moses as a descendant of Levi and not of Judah, and therefore a Levite.   He was a law giver to the Jews, certainly, but not a Jew by the definition of that time in history. This is not to diminish who he was and...
It is sad and pathetic when a promising child goes to the university only to come back with with a rationalized, modernized, and liberal version of Islam. My experience today made me conclude that except a child has proper...
Nonetheless, the most widely accepted tenets of Jewish faith are probably those defined by the twelfth century Rabbi, Moshe ben Maimon (Maimonides), known as his Thirteen Principles of Jewish Faith:   1.  God is the Creator and Ruler of all things.   2.  God is One and unique.   3.  God is incorporeal, and there is nothing like unto Him.   4.  God is eternal.   5.  Prayer is to be directed to God alone.   6.  The words of the prophets are true. 7.Moses was the greatest of the prophets.   8.  The Written Torah (i.e., the Pentateuch,...

Click here for previous session   Despite the above, there are still those who have been conditioned to propose that “Allah” is the name of a pagan god! They ignore the fact that pagans generically use the word “god” in the same way that Christians, Jews, and Muslims use it, and it does not change the fact that there is only one God.   Similarly, the word elohim was used in the Septuagint to refer to pagan gods, as well as to the Greek and Roman gods, in addition to the one true God of the Old and New Testaments. 37 Encyclopaedia Judaica clarifies this...
Click here for previous session   As for those born Muslim and raised in ignorance of their own religion, their conversion to other religions cannot fairly be viewed as turning away from Islam—since the individuals never truly embraced Islam in the first place. And, of course, not every person born into a religion is an example of piety, even if knowledgeable of their religion.   Then there are those weak of faith, who find religious conviction pushed aside by worldly priorities or the allure of more permissive faiths. But the sum total...

The Jesus Seminar is perhaps one of the most objective and sincere attempts of an ecumenical council of Christian scholars to determine the authenticity of the recorded acts and sayings of Jesus. Yet their methodology involves casting votes! Two thousand years after the ministry of Jesus, nearly two hundred scholars are formulating a collective Christian opinion regarding the reliability of the quotes and historical reports of Jesus by casting colored beads. For example, as regards the reported words of Jesus, the definitions of the bead colors are as...
