Which YouTube channels could you recommend to learn about the Tanach?

And does Judaism has different versions of the bible?. If yes, which are those? If there's only one version, what is that version?

Thanks in advance.

    Hello Veronica. Please limit this to one question. As it is this looks like there separate questions. Regarding jeshua, did you ever search online about it? Tons has been written on the Jewish attitude towards him...

    Hello and welcome to Mi Yodeya! You ask here three questions that aren't necessarily related to one another, and as such, your question will likely be closed. I recommend editing your post and narrowing it down to one, and re-asking the others in separate posts. I also recommend checking out the help section to see what sort of questions belong on this site. Hope you stick around.

  • There is only one version of the bible. Christians as well agree there is one version of the Jewish bible, they call it the Old Testament

    @mbloch Let's differentiate between what the Christians call the Old Testament and what is actually the Jewish Bible. The differences between them are so extreme that no comparison can or should justifiably be drawn.

    @Yehuda is that true? I thought they were the same, that they called our Humash the Old Testament. Can you say more about the differences?

Judaism completely rejects Jeshua (JC) and his teachings. If you want more information about this I would refer you to https://outreachjudaism.org/ where Rabbi Tovia Singer has many audio classes/ videos and debates with missionaries explaining what Judaism stance is on Jeshua.

Concerning YouTube channels which teach Tanakh, Rabbi Tovia Singer in his lectures explains many passages in Tanakh which have wrongly been interpreted by Christians. He also has a YouTube channel.

There is only one version of the Torah/Bible.

  • @VerónicaRmz. Another good resource is Jews for Judaism. R' Michael Skobac is excellent.

  • While anti-missionary activists are doing important work, it is important to remember that they often engage in sophistry (not sure if that's the right word) due to the similar sophist techniques employed by missionaries. See Proberbs 26:5. The Jewish response to Christianity is simple and I personally try and stay away from those websites, even though the people running them are good people.

  • The Jewish attitude to Christianity is: A. He failed to bring universal peace or to redeem the Jewish people from oppression B. He abolished the law, which God said was to be eternal C. He declared himself to be god, violating the most important tenets of Judaism.

  • Also, D. To accept him would violate the principle of majority rule, since he failed to convince the majority of the sages of his time, and the subsequent adoption of his teachings by gentiles with little to no prior understanding of Judaism doesn't change that fact. From the Jewish perspective, his opinion has long been relegated to the endless archived of opinions that simply didn't survive tradition, like (LHEA"H) the House of Shammai, whose teachings survived for at most a generation or two but now survive only in the books of history, so to speak.

  • @Derdeer Can you please elaborate on the sophistry of the anti-missionary activists or provide examples? I haven't seen any sophistry that I can speak of, and I've seen quite a lot of anti-missionary work.
