Show #456 - What Matters


In this episode, we discuss the difference between the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Tanach) and the Masoretic Text (Hebrew tradition of the Tanach). If a person is wanting to study the original languages, which language should they study to read the Tanach (Old Testament)? Is the Septuagint more accurate than the Masoretic text since its older? 
Also, a discussion on John 13:34 and the idea that Yeshua gives a new commandment. What is new about this commandment if we are told to love our neighbor as ourselves in the Torah? 
Finally, a conversation about Judges 11 and the story of Jephthah and his daughter. Did he really sacrifice his own daughter?
