  • Re: Can someone help me learn how to use these resources? :)(Jewish studies)

    [quote user="Mike Tourangeau"] Thank you for your help. I guess where I am confused is....Is the Talmud the Mishnah? I know I am woefully illiterate on this subject :/ [/quote] No, they are 2 separate works. The Mishnah came first, in late Second Century CE. It was Rabbi Judah Ha-Nasi (the Prince), the unofficial leader of the last remaining Pharisees

    [quote user="Mike Tourangeau"] I am not familiar with Jewish literature (Talmud etc) but I want to be. So to this end I purchased the Jewish Studies XL package for a great deal. Now I would like to learn how the Jews understood the giving of the Torah and angels. ( Acts 7:38 + Vs 53) ( Gal 3:19 ) What set me off on it was the author of Hebrews showing

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] [quote user="David Staveley"]Couldn’t agree more. So, your point is what precisely?[/quote] There's an inherent paradox in your position, which is arguing (1) that the methodology of the NT writers' was the same as their fellow Jews, but (2) the results of that exegesis was radically different.

The principle reason for this is obviously because Android is open source and you don't have to Jailbreak your device in order to install content of your choice onto it. This is why Android is the front runner in the OS wars and

    [quote user="Kevin A. Purcell"] If you want to run Windows and Logos, get a powerful computer. Unfortunately, Logos requires a lot more power than such a program probably should. None of the other Bible programs have the overhead requirements that Logos has. I'd get a Surface Pro with at least the i5 and 8GB of RAM. However, if you don't need full Logos

The other versions of Logos just don't stack up to the full Windows version. Can either of these produce the goods for an option to have Logos on the go? https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/07

    [quote user="Mike Pettit"] He has a point, and Roman Catholics often make a similar point about Verbum, the difference is that they do not get accused of making Protestants feel unwelcome. As people have pointed out Protestantism is wholly rooted in the historic church, after all Calvin was very insistent that “Augustine is wholly ours”
