The Talmud also takes credit for killing Jesus. I fact I wish I had known in the recent diatribes of the Passion being anti-Semitic. Since the Talmud IS the source of Judaism it should have been on the minds of most scholarly Rabbis that were brought on to debate the issue. Besides taking credit for Jesus' death it also denagrates the Saviour and His mother viciously.
I could go on about the Kabbala and Black Magic and other mind blowing facts but I wont. Let me say that Hoffman has written an incredible source of modern day Judaism thought and tradition that is a must read. I must say after reading this book the Scriptures became incredibly clear as what Jesus was up against in the religious leaders of His time. They had nothing to do with Moses and the Prophets and all to do with the traditions of men(Talmud) that made the Word of GOD null and void. Now I understand why Jesus stood up to the Pharisees so vehemently and never backed down.
Please read and make your own decision.
I could never find a verse in the Old Testament where it said women had to shut up.
So at church they would have women preachers and we just ignored this verse but it always bugged me.
Till I read this book and then you learn that in the Talmud which is considered "law" by Jews (but not by Jesus or Paul) it says women are basically morons, who need to shut up.
"A woman's voice is prohibited because it is sexually provocative" (Talmud, Berachot 24a). *"Women are sexually seductive, mentally inferior, socially embarrassing, and spiritually separated from the law of Moses; therefore, let them be silent" (summary of Talmudic sayings). *The Talmud Called the Voice of a Woman "Shameful" *"It is a shame for a woman to let her voice be heard among men" (Talmud, Tractate Kiddushin) *"The voice of a woman is filthy nakedness" (Talmud, Berachot Kiddushin)
So 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 is Paul's retort to a Talmud quoting Judaizer in Corinth who probably freaked out when he saw women baptized in the Holy Spirit prophesying, speaking in tongues, and doing other miraculous kinds of things.
That's why Paul tells him (my paraphrase) I know the Talmud too. All people (women too) should desire to speak in tongues and prophesy and if you don't agree you're ignorant so be quiet.
This book really drives home the point that tradition based religion really destroys the bible. The Talmud and the Catholic Catechism should both be handled carefully and never raised above the Torah or Bible or you will get something broken.
I also learned that the Talmud teaches that it's okay for Jews to lie and cheat Gentiles. This breaks the 9th commandment.
Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies ("subterfuges") to circumvent a Gentile.
So there are tons of examples where the Talmud makes the law of God (the bible) of none effect.
Excellent book if you love the Bible.
