Answering Judaism 10


Ready for the next 30 commandments? I’ll probably do these through the end of the week and move on… having made my point.

91. To sanctify the day with Kiddush and Havdalah Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

92. To rest from prohibited labor Leviticus 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. Note: The RaMBaM cited Lev. 23:32 – however, this verse in the Hebrew Bible refers only to Yom Kippur.

93. Not to do prohibited labor on Yom Kippur Leviticus 23:28-32 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. (29) For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. (30) And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. (31) Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (32) It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

94. To afflict yourself on Yom Kippur Leviticus 16:29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:

95. Not to eat or drink on Yom Kippur Leviticus 23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

96. To rest on the first day of Passover Leviticus 23:6-7 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. (7) In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

97. Not to do prohibited labor on the first day of Passover Leviticus 23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

98. To rest on the seventh day of Passover Leviticus 23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

99. Not to do prohibited labor on the seventh day of Passover Leviticus 23:8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

100. To rest on Shavuot Leviticus 23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

101. Not to do prohibited labor on Shavuot Leviticus 23:21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

102. To rest on Rosh Hashanah Leviticus 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

103. Not to do prohibited labor on Rosh Hashanah Leviticus 23:25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

104. To rest on Sukkot Leviticus 23:35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

105. Not to do prohibited labor on Sukkot Leviticus 23:33-35 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (34) Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. (35) On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

106. To rest on Shemini Atzeret Leviticus 23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

107. Not to do prohibited labor on Shemini Atzeret Leviticus 23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

108. Not to eat chametz on the afternoon of the 14th day of Nissan Deuteronomy 16:3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life. Everyone sees the word Afternoon here, right? No?

109. To destroy all chametz on 14th day of Nissan Exo 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. You do this, right? Not just burn a scrap and the feather with it… oh, you don’t even do that part???

110. Not to eat chametz all seven days of Passover Exo 13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

111. Not to eat mixtures containing chametz all seven days of Passover Exo 12:20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

112. Not to see chametz in your domain seven days Exo 13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

113. Not to find chametz in your domain seven days Exo 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. So that whole thing we do of wrapping it up, selling it to someone, and then opening it up again afterwards… is not Biblical???

114. To eat matzah on the first night of Passover Exo 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

115. To relate the Exodus from Egypt on that night Exo 13:8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt. Sing it with me, I know you know it… Mah nishtanah, halailah hazeh, mikol ha’lailot…

116. To hear the Shofar on the first day of Tishrei (Rosh Hashanah – Jewish New Year) Numbers 29:1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you. Note: The RaMBam had this listed as Numbers 9:1, which concerns passover. Possibly a copyist’s error.

117. To dwell in a Sukkah for the seven days of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) Leviticus 23:42 Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:

118. To take up a Lulav and Etrog all seven days Leviticus 23:40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.

119. Each man must give a half shekel annually Exo 30:13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD. Did you give yours this year?

120. Courts must calculate to determine when a new month begins Exo 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Can anyone find in here a mention of the word “Courts”?

Okay, the RaMBam’s not doing as well this time with citations. He’s at a 10% error rate this time. You’re sure you want to consider this Oral Torah, if it’s got an error rate of 7.3%?

Because yeah, these words are considered Oral Torah, given at Sinai, according to my old Rabbi. Despite the fact that Maimonides lived during the middle ages.

How are you doing, with keeping the Law perfectly so far? We found commandment #2 & 9 to be particularly difficult… you have to offer a sin offering for every sin, every day. With no Beis HaMiqdash, you’ve got no means of atonement!

We’ll finish up our look at the Torah tomorrow.

Seminary graduate with a Ba. in Theology/Pastoral Studies, Happily married, Independent Baptist. I can't keep silent about what I see going on in Christianity any longer! Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
