I'm certainly not a scholar on the subject, Kathy, but I studied The Old Testament in grade school.  It covers a longer period of time than The New Testament and there are a few chapters in the first five books that were rewritten at a later time and appear twice.  Maybe that makes it a bit confusing and out of order.  Even then, my teachers introduced Isaiah to us as a prophetic and allegorical book.  The verses in Isaiah have always fascinated me.

We never studied The New Testament, but I read that on my own.  I always felt that The Gospel of Matthew presented Jesus as a bit of a "radical' compared to the other gospels.  In this 1964 Italian movie, The Gospel According to St. Matthew, Jesus often appeared angry and detached...

That is interesting; I had no idea there was a movie on the Gospel of Matthew. I'm in a rush right now but will definitely watch the clip you posted.

I should probably just jump in and start reading....Not reading for fear of feeling stupid is just false pride.

Sometimes what we think will be the most difficult turns out to be just what we need.

Sorry for those innocent casualties and its a horrible thing. Shame they lived in a country that was led by an insane dictator that killed millions of innocent people and was trying to take over the world. If only they had a choice.
Sorry mate but they did have a choice.Most historians regard nazism  as "tyranny by consent." By any measure Hitler and his government were hugely popular amongst the German people. They willingly indulged in the atrocities that he articulated. As have we by those from our leaders. As have most nations. to dismiss Hitlrr as an "insane dictator" somehow hood winking an entire nation is too easy a let off for mankind,

yes but in truth most people didnt know what they were electing, and after he came to power a lot of Germans were too scared to speak out against him, he certainly didnt have mandate to commit the atrocities or maybe the invasions.
