The Talmud - is a good book?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

anyone know?..


Paul was first named Saul who was the head of the Jewish Sanhedrin, who had judged Jesus before Roman Governor for Judea Pontius Pilate. Saul became the chief hunter of Jesus's followers after the Crucifixion.

The change is commonly linked to Saul’s conversion on the Damascus Road, when the Lord Jesus commissioned him to take the gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 9:1–19)

... sounds like Paul should not be given as much respect as we like to give him. He was a jerk.

And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God's special olive tree.

^ That's what Paul said. I guess that means the Jew, Harvey Weinstein is God's chosen people, and I'm just 'grafted in,' just lucky to even be allowed to be a Christian thanks to the Jews.
