NOW you are getting it.
Copied .. changed ... it's mythology.
AND none of it is required belief in order to be a Christian.
ONLY belief in Jesus and trying to follow Him as best you know how .... that's it.
Either way, a lot of Old Testament verses are used to prove certain claims of the New Testament.
Mostly Isaiah and those kind of messianic prophecies. Sure. No problem.
But the New Testament is able to stand on it's own merit as well.
The Jews probably think Christians have hijacked their Torah and twisted it to suit their agenda.
Sure .. many do. But the thing is that the Christian Old Testament hasn't changed the wording from the Jewish Torah. And Jesus fulfilled the
prophecies from it. The entire Jewish faith is based on prophecy .. which has been fulfilled in Jesus .. and this makes the Jewish religion OBSOLETE.
Jewish powers aren't going to admit that their religion is obsolete. That would be like the Muslims admitting that Muhammad fabricated the Jesus
stories ... it's not going to happen without a smack in the head by God Himself.
The problem is Jesus is NOT God incarnate. That can be proven from the Bible itself.
Scripture proves that Jesus IS God incarnate. True God and True Man.
You've been shown all the versus. I'm not going to list them yet again.
