"The atrocities committed against Judeans over the centuries in the name of the church and its central figure, Jesus have not done anything to help Judeo-Christian relations. The Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition are two atrocities that stand out…"

Favorite version of Scriptures:
Retired Public School Teacher. I consider myself to be of the Abrahamic Faith. My favorite version of the Scriptures is George M. Lamsa's English Translation of The Aramaic Peshitta. My favorite two books of the O.T. Apocrypha are Wisdom and Sirach. I have read Laurence's translation of Enoch and at the time, I can't say I really really understood it to any real degree but it was an interesting apocalyptic story. I have read Jasher and I wouldn't go as far as to call it canonical but it follows Genesis-Exodus very well and I would heartily recommend it to anyone who likes a good story! (Really!)
