comment Is Hebrew the mother of all languages spoken today in the world?
@Eytan Yammer The difference between the Shakesperean age and the modern English age is hardly 500 years. But if you talk about the Hebrew of Torah, or the language that Abraham, Yitzhak, Yishmael and Yaakov(may peace and blessing be upon all of them) used to speak then the time difference is so huge. That really makes me feel to doubt if the modern Hebrew or Yiddish is close enough to convey the full meaning of what message the scriptures would convey. Also what is Judeo Arabic or Ladino? Thankyou for adding so much to my information.

But what is really the assurance or guarantee that Hebrew language spoken today is the same Hebrew Abraham (may peace and blessings be upon him) used to speak? Also how much of Yiddish is classical Hebrew? Thanks for the information. :)

This is where the difference in moral guidelines lie! You being a Jew can only recoginze Jews as your brothers. While in Islam, everyone being the children of Adam belong to the same fraternity. You can lend us money on interest but Islam forbids us to lend money to you or anyone on interest!

@MonicaCellio Fine. I respect the norms and your feelings as well. Let's have a chat about this question.Let us seek and search the facts of what happened between Jesus and Rabbisin his times. Also i heard that he was a Pharisee. Please confirm.

@MonicaCellio Also why just Jesus(pbuh) being highlighted as a flase prophet in the Jewish history? Was he the only one?Why just him? So far i have not got an answer to my question yet.

@MonicaCellio Thank you for updating me dear sister. I fully appreciate about your faith and feelings. But i just would like to ask you an important question: "Are only Jews allowed on this site to participate?" What if a Hindu or an idol worshipper comes in and begin praising his gods in his questions or comments then how would i and you react?

comment What was the main subject of controversy between the Rabbis and Yeshu (Jesus)?
@Jon Ericson I am here to know about the Jewish perspective of what Rabbis of his times reacted upon his teachings. Honestly, since Chritianity evloved and took the current form many years after the times of Jesus therefore the Christianity site cannot really answer to my question. Although, the bible does speak a lot about the incidents but versions according to some other person is not a credible source...well atleast to me (this is a separate debate). What i want to know is the Jewish version of the history.

comment Ethical business dealings
This question had been very interesting and informative if complete details had been posted including the contract details. I would ask the asker to rephrase this question, add detail and repost it.

comment What was the main subject of controversy between the Rabbis and Yeshu (Jesus)?
@Jon Ericson The early Christain history is more than interesting however the question is very different here. One movie that tends to answer my question was "Passion of the Christ" by Mel Gibson. But again that isn't a credible source and depicts the Christian perspective of what happened with Jesus(may peace and blessings be upon him). What i am interested to know is the Jewish perspective and what Rabbis say about him and his preaching. Thanks

@Monica Cellio I also share the same view. The answers here are quite informative but not relevant. The question is what really happened between the Rabbis and the Jesus for them to turn against him? Being a Muslim, I already have the answer from the Quran. I like to know the Jewish perspective.

So what was the year when Rabbis decided to declare Christians as Christians? Also I wonder why this incident only happened in the case of Jesus? Why not before him? I mean were there no false prophets(Jesus according to Judaism)? Was he the first one among the Jews?

comment What was the main subject of controversy between the Rabbis and Yeshu (Jesus)?
I appreciate you answering the question although this is not what I am actually looking for. I like to go back in the biblical times and find what differences were there between Jesus and the Rabbis. Some account of the incidents are narrated in the new testament of the bible but that is not a credible source. I being a Muslim, respect both religions but am very keen to know about the correct historical facts of the 3 Abrahamic Religions namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam. moderator-edited

comment What was daily life like for Jewish women living in al-Andalus in the 10th/11th centuries?
Did i ever say in my comment that there were no Christians in Muslims Spain or Andalus? What i meant to pint out in my comment that under Muslim rule, followers of all the 3 religions were living peacefully and prosperously. As the Quran clearly states: “Let there be no compulsion in religion".

comment Is it permissible for a Jewish woman to marry a Muslim man and vice versa?
You are confusing between "Judaism" and "Zionism" when you say that "Jewishness is a matter of national identity". Can you tell me how a Jew who practices the basic rules of morality via Islam fails his duty as a Jew? Do you know that usury or interest on loan is completely forbidden in Islam while Jews allow it for the non-jews to pay them interest so what do you say about that? Where are the jewish moral guidelines now?

All the 7 Laws of Noah are completely observant for person to be a practising Muslim in Islam. Thngs like Idolatory, Theft, Murder, Sexual Immorality, Blasphemy, Eating flesh of an alive animal and Establising courts of law are what Islam has emphasized from day 1! FYI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noachide_Laws FYI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Shari%27a. So according to you if a Muslim whose mother was a Jew is also a Jew..is it? A person who is an atheist si also a jew just because this person has a Jewish mother...is it? How?

Isn't this sexism? You are prefering a woman over a man for carrying religious identity. Why? Where it is written in the Torah that a person whose mother is a jew happens to be a jew? Please explain
