The Forbidden Chapter

The Forbidden Chapter

2022-04-1353:48

Whether online or in the streets, much has been said about the "Forbidden Chapter"... Isaiah 53, which is held to have been long banned from synagogues across the globe due to its overt Christological message. But is there any truth to this legend? The answer is "no," but it's also more complicated than it initially seems. In this episode we explore the claims of the Forbidden Chapter myth, the reasons as to why it's false, and the potential origins of this new, but quickly spreading, defamation.    Set Apart is a podcast covering issues related to religion and how we live as people of faith in the modern world, predominantly from a traditional Jewish perspective.

Part ten of the Ten Commandments series. We're at the end of Aseret ha'Dibrot, but while the commandment not to covet is the last, it's certainly not the least. In fact, obsession and desire for the possessions of others can easily lead us down a path of breaking the other nine. In this episode we discuss the difference between healthy and toxic desire, as well as some tips for avoiding the latter.

Last week we looked at the character of Satan from the Jewish perspective, noting the ways in which it differs from the popular interpretation. But where did this popular interpretation come from? Is it something biblical, or does it come from another source?
