Hi "Gather" mates,
I believe that the holy books are occupying a very important position in cultures and civilizations.
There are holy books that built huge civilizations.
Recently, I found the holy Torah translated into English, although I didn't understand many verses (it's translated into another language than the formal British English I have learned at school...lol) except verses that I know in Arabic. But, I believe that all humans should read the world's holy books. So, I thought if I can post the holy Torah on gather as chapters in order to let all gather mates read it easily and it'll be also a sort of culture exchange.
Someone may ask me "why especially Torah and not Quran?"
Really, I have several reasons;
First of all, that I'm already believe that the Torah and Gospel are books came from God.
Second, the Quran is too long compared to the Torah. Reading Quran may take 3 days and nights at least. For me, I read it in month and half. While the Torah is too short compared to Quran, so it'll finish quickly, I think.
Third, I have read some of the Torah before and I found that it's so easy to understand without interpretation, while the translated Quran without a detailed interpretation cannot be understood at all (may be understood literally, but the whole meaning "NO")
Fourth, that I trust the translation of the Torah, but I don't trust all translations of Quran, thus I can't post anything that I don't trust.
Thus, Sorrowfully the Quran is not available, but I think the Torah and the Gospel are.
And also I don't allow rating or even comments. I'm posting it just for reading and knowledge.
Actually, I didn't study Torah from its followers to discuss it and it's also immoral to discuss someone's beliefs while he is absent and cannot defend... I think.
I have posted two chapters of Genesis till now.
My friend "Patti M." told me that what she learned there was very little difference between their Bible and the Holy Torah.
