    Who is ‘us’? Finally a clear explanation of Gen 1:26. Thank you Tovia! The truth is always a simple answer and easy to believe.

    While I enjoyed the entire program from beginning to end, I was captivated by Tovia’s explanation of the suffering servant at the end of the show. It completely blows away the Christian’s interpretation of Isaiah 53.
    I also realize the importance of learning Hebrew in that I would never have known the correct interpretation that Noah became a man of the ground instead of a tiller of the soil. What a huge difference this makes, and this is just one Torah portion. Can you just imagine how many more misinterpreted verses there are thoughtout the Tanakh?
    Thanks to the three of you for opening my eyes even further.
    Tovia, I will be at your debate. I am so excited. Just thought I’d throw that in for good measure.

    His nakedness, in other parts of the Torah is his wife. So uncovering a man’s nakedness usually has to do with his wife. Is this the reason or am I totally off on this one.

  7. Bonne Nelsn says

    Very informative and I have a question..I heard Ira teach that the sages say that Hashem allowed sacrifices because the Israelites had just left all those years living in idolatry and that He never commanded them to bring animal sacrifices it was free will, now my question is if this is the case did Hashem command Noah or anyone before him to offer sacrifices and when were they established because I am confused? I always thought they were required. Also why does the Tanakh not translate the verse as Noah is was a man of the earth and use either farmer or husbandman? I see it is correct in the Hebrew but different in English.

    The Noah story can also be read as a local flood and referring only to Noah and his household: “And the LORD said unto Noah: ‘Come thou and ‘all thy house’ into the ark” [Gen 7:1]. Here, no wild animals are listed, and the people would have correctly imagined the whole world as a flood because they never ventured outside their towns all their life at this early period. ‘Earth’ [eretz] does not mean ‘world’. Noah would have had both kosher and non-kosher animals in his household [e.g. Dogs, Camels]. A global flood contradicts the measurements of the boat given to Noah. “The whole world is awash” – does not mean the whole world is awash.
