To be honest I'm not against anyone that holds the OT to be completely true. I support and and even defend the belief that I do not hold. Tell me what you think of my views on the old testament and even some other views. I actually switch between a few views so it gets pretty complicated. My views: current* I do not know. While I do accept that some content is god inspired I'm unsure about other laws. I personally think that the israelites copied many laws from others. I also believe that they were heavily influenced by the code of hammurabi. I consider many of the stories in the old testament to be just religious stories. (Like Job, abraham, etc.) That doesn't mean that they cannot be god inspired though and important. To be honest the babylonian talmud seems to be a sort of double edged sword. While it does help with interpretation they rabbis get a lot wrong.(such as stating beating slaves is acceptable) Anyway those are my 2 cents on the idea. I do not flat out reject it but i am skeptical about a lot. Lastly I also have another theory it's basically that we have to extract the human interpretation from the word of god. Other views: the old testament god is not compatible with Jesus. Jesus just agrees with the Hebrews theology about the nature of god. The OT is completely literal Tell me what you think about these views.
