    Messiah is conceived or born on Tisha B'Av (the ninth of Av, the very day that twice the temple was destroyed). The temple design is anthropomorphic. Many Rabbis concede to this. Rabbi Hirsch says...

    The Dead "End" is not a Dead End.

    To suggest that every Jewish woman is ---ritually speaking --- perpetually virgin --- goes to the very heart of the most foundational symbolism in the Torah.

    Two bloods.

    Mary is not sinless since sin infects every cell of every body (save one: the seed of the woman after meiotic cleansing). The female seed throws off half of it's chromosomes in the process that makes...

    Hi Pentecost,



    . . . Yes. I agree with the gist of what you're saying. It's true that the deeper meanings come through simple faith and love (particularly for the Word of God) rather than faith...
