he doesn't take into account that a few other people throughout the past 2000 years have read this same text and responded to it
My goal is not to find contradictions, mock impossible events, or scoff at hypocrisy. Nor am I quite stupid enough to pretend that Judaism (or Christianity) is just the Bible. Jews are not only the People of the Book but the People of Many Books. There is the rest of the Hebrew Bible--the Prophets and Writings, the vast commentary of the Talmud, the stories of the midrashim, and thousands and thousands of years of other law and story and commentary. This 4,000 years' worth of delving and discussion is totally unfamiliar to me--I can't hope to compete with its wisdom.
