comment What sin did Jesus do?
I agree. Forgiving your enemies is stupid. It does have some deeper meaning. Something Law of attraction practitioners do.

Command 24 is interesting. So, how things went in Egypt? Did you remember it? Got pics, memento, etc.?

Some christian denomination count the first as a whole commandment. The second one is there should be no other God. Some combine 1st and 2nd into 1 commandment. I wonder where number 10 comes from. Everyone says it's 10 commandment. Rabam, as you said, think there are 13 of them.

comment How do books which have obviously been compiled become part of Tanach?
So, in Judaism, only torah is inerrant. The rest of the tanach while very accurate and "worthy" is not inerrant. That's the difference between Christian typical inerrant doctrine and Judaism. What about talmud? That's even less inerrant

So we have faith not on the author but on the compiler. What's next? Translators? Interpreters? Miyodeya answerers? If that's the case, why need God at all? We got all these holy translators, interpreters, and miyodeya answerers we can trust here. Who needs the bible. Just listen to what they think is true and tada you got theology.

So if latter some guys recompile and reedit the tanach into a different book. Say the original is lost. Then, the new book will be the holy ones too? What about copying error? We got divine copy error too?

What imprimatur those chronicles, kings, and psalms have that we know it's "divine".

Why didn't God tell people to write the final version of the holy book right from the beginning? Why the book has to "evolve" first into it's final form?

Imprimatur? What's that? How do we know that a book is holy? There are so many rabbis that also says pretty wise things. Why they're not part of the scriptures?

I am an aspie. So I don't jump to conclusions most neuro typicals take for granted.

comment Are there any jokes in tanach?
I think part of the jokes of "is there no grave in egypt" is the idea that egypt is famous for its graves. Pyramids are graves, for example. They're effectively saying that the whole point of their deliverance is because because they are so pathetic they don't deserve graves like Pharaohs.
