Indeed. And, I would add, to show regard by reading it everyday.

MAybe the Jewish folks can answer.

Are their scrolls very old or fragile? Hrad to manufacture.

I as because the reason you wont see some Christains rushing into get a bible out of the water is because its a mass produced book and easy to replace. The church I go to does not have any old hard to replace artifacts so this thing is new to me.

Are the scrolls pretty hard to replace?

Not trying to flame, just wondering. Here for the info.

Yep.

Romans 3

[1] What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
[2] Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

I think I read somewher that they had to bath everytime they wrote G-d. Not the average Jew but those who made the scrools?

Probably wrong and dont mind being corrected as long as it doesnt contain the Antichristian jabs some love to toss out every now and then.

Jews use what is called a Mikvah, a ritual pool. And yes a Sopher, one who is a ritual scribe, will immerse before he writes the name of G-d.

Not to be confused with the TALMUD, which is a collection of "commentaries" and rabbinical teachings over the centuries. Important, perhaps, but not considered scripture


Which is why we can trust our current Bibles. When the dead sea scrolls (dated to the first century AD) were found in the fifties (?) they were compared to the current scriptures in use and found to be virtually identical. In the places that they differed, it was insignificant- like having a "for" in place of "because"

God gave the scriptues to the jews and they have been faithful in preserving them for thousands of years.

As a Christian, I say thank you.



Actualy, You have confused the Tanak and the Torah. The Tanak is what you would call the "Old Testament. The Torah is the first five books.

While Christianity does not consider the Talmud authorative, it is a false assertion to make such a statement that would encompass Judaism as well. Parts of the Talmud are very much so the word of G-d To traditional Judaism.

Yep, just amazing.
