comment Were Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego told that there would be no miracle?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadrach,_Meshach,_and_Abednego Looks like Sadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is the more popular name and the bible actually uses that name. The wikipedia entry uses sadrach, meshach, and abednego instead of hananiah, misael, and azaria

I see. Abraham uses elohim followed by plural verb when addressing abimelech. The most natural translation should be "the gods lead me here". As usual, that phrase is unnaturally translated. That would be another question.

The story of Haran being burned is not in the torah. I am not even sure if Abraham is monotheistic. Gen 20:13 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

So God won't tell lie, but may deceive by silent.

Actually this is what I really want to know. So don't expect a miracle. It's God's will. I didn't know that Haran is burned?

And why Ezekiel told them that Hashem will not be with them? After all, Hashem does not save every would be martyrs right?

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.?

comment Why are there 40 commandments in 10 commandments?
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".
