comment Did Jeremiah complain about corrupt torah in Jeremiah 8:8?
That other question seems to be the gist of this question as well, though not as similar. This question talks about whether wa tawrat means torah at all.

comment Did Jeremiah complain about corrupt torah in Jeremiah 8:8?
a bible that says that it is corrupted can't possibly be correct. But yea your answers make a lot of sense. As how Jesus, Ezra, etc. quote the bible. You seem to assume that all those guys are perfect. Maybe they're not as perfect as you think. Ezra could be a racist plotter that mistakenly kicked out southern Israelites thinking they were non jewish. Gospel writers may combine a bunch of teaching and put it in Jesus' mouth.

comment Why is Jacob renamed Israel twice?
An angel? I thought Jacob fought an elohim, which mean god. The word for angel is melekh.

comment Why did Abraham stop at ten in Genesis 18:32?
So we got 3 righteous people saved. Lot, and his 2 daughter. They engage in incest. And that's like the most righteous of all. Then we got noah that get drunk. If that's the most righteous humans, what did the rest do? Watch porn?

comment Is there bible translation that is more literal than Young Literal Translation
Okay the answers are good. It doesn't explain why bnei elohinm is translated as angels of methuo is translated as drunk satisfactorily or whatever.

comment How to interpret John 2:10
In any case, most english bible translators do not translate methuo as alcohol intoxication. I wonder if it's a deliberate attempt to keep bible politically correct. I could make that a separate question but then some mod will mark the question as duplicate.

I found others anomaly. Bnei Elohim is often translated as angels. Methuo is often translated as have drunk satisfied (rather than as alcoholically intoxicated). It's as if the translator try to keep bible politically correct.

comment Does Jesus drink wine?
Well, who said that all people in the party drink in moderation? John 2:10 says that typical in typical jewish party, people get drunk. Also Jesus produce copious amount of wine.
