Christians claim the "traditions of men" in Mark 7:8 is the Torah She BikTav, Hebrew Roots people say it is the Torah She Be'al Peh. Both of these interpretations would cause the Tanach and the Brit Chadasha to be a book full of contradiction in the core of their foundations. Hear what a Lapid Jew says it is after looking at the original Aramaic as well as what the Torah She Be'al Peh says in terms of the parallels to this passage. This episode will get you thinking because Christopher discusses it from every single possible angle to get the proper interpretation of this premise. And you will be surprised to find out both the Christians and the Hebrew Roots people miss the mark on this interpretation more than you may have realized.
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on several Christian radio stations as well as Lapid Judaism Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
