Pastor Anderson: In order to understand the founding of the modern state of Israel, you have to understand the history of the Jews from A.D. 70 until that time, and you have to understand that their religion is no longer based on the Bible whatsoever. For example, ever since the temple was destroyed, they don't do ANY animal sacrifices.

Rabbi Mann: As far as the animal sacrifices are concerned, that's been discontinued.

Rabbi Abrami: Finished!

Rabbi Mann: And what developed in Judaism is the system of prayers, that sort of became a substitute.

Rabbi Wiener: Well, I think that was the beginning of modernization. I really believe that.

Leader Schesnol: Once that temple was destroyed, Jews did not have a central location. They were dispersed. They literally changed the nature of Judaism, and that portable form of Judaism led a transformation from priestly Judaism to Rabbinic Judaism.

Pastor Anderson: Judaism stopped being the religion of the Old Testament and began to be the religion of the rabbis and their traditions, or what they call "the Oral Torah."

Texe Marrs: The Talmud is the holy book of the Jews. It was the oral sayings of the rabbis. It's known as the wisdom of the rabbis.

Rabbi Abrami: The Talmud is a compilation of all the great discussions that took place from the 2nd century BC until the 5th century CE. It's a kind of encyclopedia of Jewish knowledge. The best way of calling it would be the Jewish wikipedia of the ages. Yes, because many people participated in it. It's not written by one person. Several hundred scholars - hundreds of authors.

Pastor Anderson: According to Judaism, the oral law, or what would later be known as the Talmud, was given to the 70 elders that came to the base of Mount Sinai but were not allowed to proceed any further. The Pharisees believed that these 70 elders received a much more extensive and profound revelation than Moses, which was not to be written down. It was only to be passed down orally. These oral traditions took precedence over the written Torah, or what we know as Genesis to Deuteronomy. Evidence of this is found in the Talmud itself:

Erubin 21b: "My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the scribes than in the words of the Torah."

Rabbi Mann: That's what differentiates the orthodox from the non-orthodox.

Pastor Anderson: The non-orthodox see the Talmud as more man-made?

Rabbi Mann: More man-made in developing, and so on and so forth.

Pastor Anderson: Whereas you believe the Talmud is inspired by God.

Rabbi Mann: It's inspired by God. Yeah.

Rabbi Wiener: Anything to do with scripture is considered the word of God by a large segment of the...

Pastor Anderson: Including the Talmud?

Rabbi Wiener: Yes.

Texe Marrs: He said, "You don't believe in the religion of Moses. You have for your religion," he told the Jews, "You have for your religion the traditions of the elders."

In Mark 7:7, Jesus said of the Pharisees, "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

Pastor Anderson: And the Talmud is the doctrines of men.

Rabbi Mann: It's not possible for an ordinary person that's not trained to just read the Talmud and understand the oral law. It's very complex. You need a teacher.

Pastor Anderson: Has a typical rabbi read it cover to cover?

Rabbi Wiener: I don't know. It depends what they studied.

Pastor Anderson: Have you read it cover to cover?

Rabbi Wiener: I wouldn't say I've read all 36 volumes, but I've read several.

Pastor Anderson: You've read a lot of it obviously.

Rabbi Wiener: Yes, but I'm sure people that devote their energies to just study have done that.
