  11. A Riddle

    This forum has lain fallow for so long, I've decided to revive it with a harmless little riddle. Think about it through the weekend and I'll give the answer next week if no one else gives it first. Here's the riddle: How do we know for sure that Adam and Eve were Jewish?

    Can anyone out there give me a definition of this word? I saw it as a license plate today and I have sort of a vague memory of hearing in the past but a web search turns up only 3 entries, none of which really do it for me.

  20. Were Essenes Jewish?

    I assume that they were because that is where Jesus studied and he was Jewish. How does this group relate to the current Jewish faith...or does it?
