  Slavery in Shulchan Aruch
Posted by: worm - 09-29-2022, 03:33 PM - Forum: Judaism General - No Replies

Hey folks! I’m new here. It sure is cozy to be posting on a forum like the good ole’ days ( 2000s ). I’m a lay anthropologist, and lately I’ve been interested in Judaism. I was wondering if anyone knows what is Tonguesaid about human slavery and slave trafficking/upkeep in the Shulchan Aruch. Slavery was still prevalent at this time, and I am mainly curious about the real history of how it began to go the way of the dodo. 

Thanks Everyone

  Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before Me?
Posted by: Blue Bird - 09-29-2022, 10:18 AM - Forum: Judaism General - No Replies

Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? Because he has humbled himself before Me, I will not bring the disaster in his lifetime.

I Kings 21:29

Feels like G-d gets excited about Ahab just because he humbled himself before Him. What are your thoughts on this kind of humility (maybe there are also wrong ways to be humble)?

This one from Rabbi Fohrman should be a good guide to understand things a little clearer -

  Why does Luke add a verse that is not there?
Posted by: searchinmyroots - 09-19-2022, 08:41 PM - Forum: Counter-Missionary Forum - Replies (4)

Luke 4:16-18 -

16 - He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read,
17 - and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
18 - “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,

19 - to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

20 - Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21- He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”


Isaiah 61-1 from where it was said he was reading from -

The spirit of the Lord God was upon me, since the Lord anointed me to bring tidings to the humble, He sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to declare freedom for the captives, and for the prisoners to free from captivity.

To declare a year of acceptance for the Lord and a day of vengeance for our God, to console all mourners


Serious question -

Why and how is it that "and recovery of sight for the blind" is added?

It clearly isn't written anywhere in Isaiah 61.

Why does the Christian bible say "Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:" when something was added that is not written there at all?

  Views about Hinduism
Posted by: vprasady266 - 09-10-2022, 08:14 PM - Forum: World Religion - Replies (1)

I have seen some videos on youtube by some Rabbis like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2mu0ubsAx4
there are a lot of others I came across, which sound similar and seem to suggest all belief systems are basically good and are leading to God anyway.
The God of the bible seems to be very much against worshipping idols and corrupting His image and replacing Him with animals we see around. There are several religions which do have such animal/idol worship, especially Hinduism which has no bar on worshipping anything we see around. What do jews who believe in the Tanakh think about this? Do you think Hindus have found God or have been lead astray and sinned against God for millennia? I am looking for unbiased answers please?

  Are too many Germans becoming Jews?
Posted by: Blue Bird - 09-08-2022, 07:10 PM - Forum: Judaism General - Replies (2)

I just read this interesting article. What I didn't find is the point that someone who has become Jewish cannot be against Jews.
