  • 1. Judaism pt. 3b Analysis and Evaluation
  • 2. Judaism Epistemology <ul><li>Torah – The first five books of the Hebrew Bible. </li></ul><ul><li>Tanakh – The entirety of the Hebrew Bible. </li></ul><ul><li>Mishnah – Definitive word of early rabbinic Judaism compiled c. 200 C.E. The Mishnah records the rabbinic interpretations and disagreements regarding the Tanakh. </li></ul><ul><li>Talmud – seeks to leave no issue in the Mishnah and Tanakh unexplained. It is, in part, a collection of the traditions Moses gave in oral form. Both the Mishnah and the Talmud are considered as authoritative as the Tanakh. </li></ul>
  • 3. Epistemological Problems <ul><li>They do not agree on the nature or the inspiration of their scripture. Orthodox Jews maintain that the written and oral Torah are God’s word; the Reform Jews maintain that the Bible is a human document. </li></ul><ul><li>Their basic understanding of the nature and essence of “God” is in question. Orthodox Jews maintain that God is personal and retains “omni” characteristics; Reform Jews can accept just about any concept of God. </li></ul><ul><li>The Reform view of salvation is that one is saved through the betterment of self and society; the Orthodox view presupposes right standing with God. </li></ul>
