    While on the topic of Passover Haggadahs, did you hear about the recent controversy of a Messianic Jewish haggadah?

    • Judah:

      Thanks for the link about Lederer’s Haggadah. Barry Rubin is a friend and I have used that Haggadah. I agree with the bookstores, though, that it does not belong in the Jewish section.

    Idolatry is a concept not really much understood in our times. How do idols come into being? We create them. With our hands and minds. There are bibliophiles of all kinds. People who worship the works of their minds (and hands) and others. What was so great about the golden calf? Ever met someone who “adores” the great skill of some artist? First I noticed the Protestants who call Catholics “idolaters” were idolizing so many of their histories great movers and shakers instead of the God who gave such leaders the ability to stand. Now, the same thing is happening all over again. God revives humanity to know Jesus was a Jew, that Judaism is not the culprit, and the Way is not coming to Christ and then all is grace and no laws at all. No Pastor really believes that. Every Church I’ve ever been in has rules, they have to. A man may get it wrong what is, or should be, canon. But there really is not excuse for idolizing any man, the works of anyone (but God), or their teachings.

    Again, as I said in response to your comment under the post about “Postmissionary Messianic Judaism 3 Years Later”, your definition of idolatry is problematic.

    It seems you are saying that all teachers and traditions become idols and that we should read the Bible without them. This will never work and it is not, in fact, what you are doing. You cannot read the Bible in a vacuum.
