Quote from: Foadle on April 29, 2010, 12:53:32 amWriting is great if you can read. But you need to remember that it has really only been in fairly recent times that their have been larger amounts of people who can read. If you were poor you did not get an opportunity at any form of education. If you were middle class you might have this privelege offered you. Generally it was for the rich. Yet everyone was expected to know the Torah. So much of it was taught orally.
Quote from: JTM³ on April 28, 2010, 04:11:00 pmReally? I've never heard that.The Torah was given at Mt. Sinai. The Jews had just come out of Egypt.Egypt was highly advanced for its time, and they had Papyrus scrolls, so the Torah was definitely written down.I disagree that the Word of God was repeated through oral tradition, it does NOT suffer from the telephone game.I've just never heard anything to that effect.
