Traci Rhoades joins Two Christians and a Jew for a discussion of what Torah is. Traci is the author of Not All Who Wander (Spiritually) Are Lost https://www.amazon.com/Not-All-Wander-Spiritually-Lost/dp/1640652795, in which she discusses her experiences seeking God in different church communities. Check out her blog https://www.tracesoffaith.com/ and follow her on Twitter @tracesoffaith.
We discuss the Written Torah and the Oral Torah, the nature of the Oral Torah and interpretation, the branching off into Christian denominations and Jewish 'movements', and music. If you've ever wondered what Jews include in the Bible, what the Torah is, what Tanakh is, what the Mishnah (or Mishna), Talmud, and Gemara are, etc., we made this for you. We also discuss how the organic structure of the Torah, both in terms of its paragraphs and its music. That's right: the Torah is a song.
In this episode, the main sources are Exodus 19:3-9, Exodus 24:2-7, and Deuteronomy 31: 16-30. Be sure to check out the show notes on our site TwoChristiansAndAJew.com because there are loads of links there with resources for your musical and intellectual enjoyment.
