Far too many Western Christians confuse the Jewish Talmud with what is commonly called the Torah, or the first five books of the Bible.
That error leads to a gross misunderstanding of what modern Judaism is based on.
The Talmud is also not a single book, it is a set of books that were compiled prior to, and finalized around the 6th Century A.D. They are claimed to be the codification of the Oral Law of God that was supposedly handed down from Moses.
For a religious Jew who follows Orthodox Judaism (the de facto State religion of Israel), the Talmud, not the scriptures of the Bible, are their highest authority. The Jewish Talmud supersedes the Old Testament scriptures in authority and is their most Holy Writ.
It has been said that the Talmud is the most racist, hate-mongering, and blasphemous set of books in the world (even more so than the Quran and the other two books of Islam).
Prior to obtaining our own Talmud and then checking for ourselves (something most American Christians refuse to do) we would have considered that statement an absurd exaggeration, however, we now know it is not an exaggeration. Therefore, in regards to Judaism and the Holy books of Judaism, it is not surprising that the American Christian Church is as ignorant as it is. Jesus in Mat 15:9, referencing Isaiah 29:13, said that the doctrines of Judaism were based on the precepts of men, and of course He was correct. Jesus also said that the Jewish traditions (the oral law) voided the Word of God (Mat. 15:1-14). Those statements were correct when Jesus made them, and they still are today.
We have examined the English translation of the Talmud, however, we have been informed that English versions are "cleaned up," so to speak, so as to conceal from the Gentiles the true meanings found in the original Hebrew version. However, even if that is correct, the Talmud is still a vile set of "religious" books, even in the English version. That is not surprising because Jesus himself said this about the religion of the Jews, Your father is of the Devil (John 8:44).
The primary thrust of the Talmud can be categorized into three main areas; which are:
This is a sampling of what is in the Talmud:
It needs to be noted that the passages in the Talmud that claim that Mary's pregnancy (and therefore the birth of Jesus) was the result of Mary becoming pregnant by a human male, are direct blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, since God's Word, the Bible, clearly states that Mary was with child by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18 & Matthew 1:20). Furthermore, it must also be noted, and noted very strongly, that the Bible again clearly states that to blaspheme the Holy Spirit is an unpardonable sin (Mark 3:29 & Luke 12:10).
