I will start by saying that I know nothing and must admit I was raised Christian. I had some curiosity as to why Christians are Christian when our guy that we are supposed to imitate and be like told us constantly to obey the law, that the law was perfect, and is very much presented as an Orthodox Jew.
It seemed to me that the character of Jesus was borderline obsessive about the Tanakh (Laws of Torah and quoting the prophetic books), and we basically ignore its teachings as a church to a great degree, and I have been told that Christian Old Testament's are not accurate in the first place.
Anyway, long story short this has lead me down a ridiculous rabbit hole that I am very glad to go down, but I have realized I will not understand the Tanakh as I would like without learning Biblical Hebrew.
I have started taking online classes, hardly, I should say I am in the process of starting, and I would like to purchase a complete Tanakh in as close to original form as possible. I have been told that Mikraos Gedolos Is where to turn but being as I do not speak Hebrew (yet), I know basically nothing, and I am not Jewish (yet, we’ll see where this journey takes me) I am having quite a time trying to find what to buy to use for studying as I move into understanding the text.
Hope I can get some answers!
(I also am beginning to get the feeling that the only way to live the life advised by the Jesus character I grew up with would be to convert to Orthodox Judaism, however I am very aware that that position would not be accepted by Orthodox Judaism or by the Christian Church, it just happens to be where I am at in understanding at this point in my journey.)
