Many cite certain passages in tractate Sanhedrin to say that the Talmud is anti-Gentile. Christopher looks at the context of these passages and discusses the difference between Mishna, Gemara and Tanya to help the perspective of this as well as the overall context of these passages. Christopher also discusses the difference between a goy and a ger as well as what was going on historically when these passages were in the gemara section of the talmud.
Most teachers who are pro-Talmud like Christopher do not discuss these passages and pretend they do not exist, as good scholars we should address these passages in a contextual, grammatical and historical view
There is a movement that infiltrated the Hebrew Roots movement roughly 10 years ago that is an underground anti-missionary group. They are called the karaites. In this episode Christopher doesn't discuss the fact that the Crimean Karaites partnered with the Nazis to put the Jewish people into death camps, but he does go over the facts of the theological issues that are a part of the karate movement which is to ultimately get a person to deny Yeshua. Christopher also discusses how if the Karaites were indeed solas scriptura then why do they deny all the passages in the Bible that speak on the authority of the Sanhedrin and the Oral Torah? Ae these passages just looked over and they pretend they do not exist?
In this episode Christopher answers questions on the Bible, Messiah, Halakha, Judaism etc he received live during the broadcast as well as emailed questions before the broadcast.
