The Catholic Bible was created from early Christian writings and the Jewish Tanakh. Christianity had been illegal until the 4th Century. The Christian writings in Aramaic were abolished. The ones remaining that we know of were found during archeological digs like the Qumran Texts (britanica.com). Indeed the persecution of the Jews (EretzYisroel.org) often saw the burning of the Talmud (JewishHistory.org).
In 1553 Pope Julius III issued an edict claiming the Talmud was heresy. It didn’t matter the Old Testament is based on those writings. Jewish homes and businesses were raided (and burned) and the writings seized and burned (encyclopedia.com). Dozens of Jews were also burned at the stake (JewishHistoryTimeline).
Did you know? Pope Julius III was involved in a scandal. He adopted a homeless youth, Inocenzio, as his nephew. He appointed him as cardinal-nephew and showered him with gifts. Hmmm. After the Pope’s death he committed two murders and two rapes. (Wikipedia)
Here is another story from the Tanakh, taken from Shemot (Exodus) chapter 4. This is the story of God threatening to kill Moses for refusing to circumcise his son. In the Biblical translation his wife cuts off the boys foreskin to save Moses. The first translation in the left column is rabbinical the second literal.
23 So I say to you, ‘Send out My son so that he will worship Me, but if you refuse to send him out, behold, I am going to slay your firstborn son.’ “
וָֽאֹמַ֣ר אֵלֶ֗יךָ שַׁלַּ֤ח אֶת־בְּנִי֙ וְיַ֣עַבְדֵ֔נִי וַתְּמָאֵ֖ן לְשַׁלְּח֑וֹ הִנֵּה֙ אָֽנֹכִ֣י הֹרֵ֔ג אֶת־בִּנְךָ֖ בְּכֹרֶֽךָ
I say to you send out your/my son and he will serve me, but if you do not agree to send him here I will kill your son in the womb.
The first term of אֶת־בְּנִי֙ means “your” linked with “my son” or “people.” The term לְשַׁלְּח֑וֹ means “to send him” so contextually we choose “my son.”
24 Now he was on his way, in an inn, that the Lord met him and sought to put him to death.
וַיְהִ֥י בַדֶּ֖רֶךְ בַּמָּל֑וֹן וַיִּפְגְּשֵׁ֣הוּ יְהֹוָ֔ה וַיְבַקֵּ֖שׁ הֲמִיתֽוֹ:
Now on the way to an inn to meet him Yahaveh and sought his death
25 So Zipporah took a sharp stone and severed her son’s foreskin and cast it to his feet, and she said, “For you are a bridegroom of blood to me.”
וַתִּקַּ֨ח צִפֹּרָ֜ה צֹ֗ר וַתִּכְרֹת֙ אֶת־עָרְלַ֣ת בְּנָ֔הּ וַתַּגַּ֖ע לְרַגְלָ֑יו וַתֹּ֕אמֶר כִּ֧י חֲתַן־דָּמִ֛ים אַתָּ֖ה לִֽי
And she took a small bird and skinned it to create her foreskin and threw it at his feet and said because you receive my blood
26 So He released him. Then she said, “A bridegroom of blood concerning the circumcision.”
וַיִּ֖רֶף מִמֶּ֑נּוּ אָ֚ז אָֽמְרָ֔ה חֲתַ֥ן דָּמִ֖ים לַמּוּלֹֽת
So He departed from him. Then she said she was son in law blood to God
The literal translation does not agree with the Rabbinical one. This was for protection. The stories had been rewritten to serve the new narrative by the Romans. Of course, the Controllers figured this out a long time ago and have consistently persecuted the Jews for it.
What should we make of a “god” who physically fights with Moses and threatens to kill an unborn child if he isn’t allowed to take it away with him? Moses’ wife pretended to be a man to save her child.
