The Torah = Jewish holy book
The Bible = Christian holy book
The Torah is the first five books of the Bible. That's it. No other shared holy text. Please people, get educated.
Torah (/ˈtɔːrə, ˈtoʊrə/; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, "Instruction", "Teaching" or "Law") has a range of meanings. It can most specifically mean the first five books (Pentateuch) of the 24 books of the Tanakh, and is usually printed with the rabbinic commentaries (perushim). It can mean the continued narrative from the Book of Genesis to the end of the Tanakh (Malachi), and it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching, culture and practice, whether derived from biblical texts or later rabbinic writings.
Please explain.People generally get original sin and immacuate conception wrong too.
Please explain.He's lying.
A lot of people think 'original sin' refers to Adam and Eve being disobedient, but it actually refers to each of us being a sinner from our origin (ie conception) in our mother's womb so we are born as sinners right from our origin. We are all of us born already tainted with 'original sin'.That is all but one of us - Mary. Mary was uniquely not tainted with original sin in order she was fit to bear Jesus. Mary was conceived sinless (ie imacculate) in her mother's womb. Hence it was Mary who was immmaculately conceived, not Jesus. 'Imaculate conception' is not the same thing as the 'virgin birth'.Good Catholics are taught all that, but many Protestants aren't taught Catholic theology!
I think keithprosser was simply suggesting that, if you are not a member of a specific religion, you should carefully check your reference material.He just did. He's also said no one should discuss a religion they aren't in. He is an atheist. Making every post a hypocritical statement.
