1. Reform Jews do not follow Torah law. This is what Reform Judaism is about. Your answer there is "to focus their faith life on inner examination rather than ritual observance." It is the Orthodox and some Conservative who follow Torah law, including the Talmud. 2. Miracles NEVER confirm the authenticity of prophecy. ONLY the fulfillment of prophecy confirms that prophecy. This is why Jews do not look at the supposed miracles of Jesus as proof that he was the Messiah, as Christians do. Jews look ONLY to see if he fulfill the actual Jewish prophecies, and he didn't. The Jewish prophecies are different than the Christian prophecies. The Jewish prophecies are the ones that Christianity says Jesus will "come back" to fulfill. But there is no such thing as a "second coming", in Judaism. 3. None of those answers are correct. Judaism does not seek converts because Judaism teaches that ALL people have their place in the World To Come and that ALL people are born with pure clean souls, and that each person has the God-given capability to be Righteous by following the Covenant given between God and the Gentiles in the Torah. That Covenant is called the 7 Noahide Laws, and they are paths for living that are moral, ethical, and enable people in to live in fair, just societies with each other. Please see http://www.noahide.org 4. Again, none of the above. Jews have always lived in Israel. Israel was invaded time and again by others who are not from there, such as the Arabs. Israel was renamed "Palestine" by one of those invaders in 136 A.D., the Roman General Hadrian. It had been "Israel" for over a thousand years prior to that. Before that, the land was called Canaan. Not "Palestine". Israel is its proper name. Please bring this article to your teacher's attention, illustrating the Jewish vast majority of the land: http://www.thejerusalemgiftshop.com/israelnews/editorial/38-editors-choice/1992-jews-dominated-the-holyland-in-1695.html As well, have your teacher read the writings of Mark Twain who visited Israel and wrote basically the same thing in the late 1800s. 5. Held by Elected, Secular Officials. Israel's government is not a religious government, it is secular. 6. There is no Jewish initiative to rediscover Jesus as a figure of Jewish identity. This is ridiculous. What kind of school are you going to that is teaching you so much ignorance, so far every question just about, has been completely off the mark from anything resembling reality. This question, for instance, is beyond ridiculous. There is no such Jewish initiative to rediscover Jesus whatsoever. Jesus was a false Messiah, in Judaism. Period. Most Jews never even think about him, it doesn't even enter our minds, let alone an initiative to rediscover him as a Jew. Jesus broke Torah law, and taught his followers to do the same, failed to fulfill even one of the actual Jewish prophecies, and his followers have caused the deaths of millions and millions of our people over the last 2000 years. 7. "as the eternal imperative of faith given to Jews by God" comes closest. We DO adapt to the times. For instance, we are forbidden from starting a fire on Shabbat. How does modern electricity figure into that? We have to adapt electricity into that now, in a way that doesn't change Torah law, but will stay true to it while adapting modern inventions. 8. "never attributed their divine inspiration and incredible deeds on themselves". However, please remember that it is not the "old" testament, but the Torah. Still alive, still very much the foundation of our people's religion, culture, and way of life. You wouldn't go around calling other tribal people's holy book "old". So please dont do it to ours. Please feel free to inform your teacher. 9. Both A and B. Jesus didn't fulfill even one of the ACTUAL Jewish prophecies, which is why Christianity created the idea of a "second coming" (which doesn't exist in Judaism), in order for Jesus to still be able to fulfill them in the future. This is nonsense, according to Judaism, where all the prophecies are fulfilled during the real Messiah's lifetime. 10. Christianty. There is no such thing in Judaism as God becoming flesh, impregnating virgins, a Messiah who is divine or worshipped, or who dies for anyone's sins. All of this comes from paganism adopted by Christianity, not from Judaism.

Good for you for attempting the task before asking (unlike many) I disagree with 5 (Israel is largely a secular democracy, so C) 8c (I don't read the OT prophets as forgiving, on the whole!) 10 is B (Incarnation: specifically of God in Jesus, is a Christian doctrine) That doesn't necessarily mean I'm right.

Margarita Originally Answered: Why is he "checking up" on me?
Break it off completely. Tell him you are moving on. It's my opinion that anyone who would break up with someone and then want to go back is never worth going back to.
Margarita Originally Answered: Why is he "checking up" on me?
He's very immature, and can't believe that you could possibly move on, because he thinks he was your sun moon and stars. His ego is hurt really bad. don't worry about it, his pride is getting the best of him because he thought that no matter what he did, you would always be there. He is being very immature, imagine what the rebound chick is going through, because he can't get his mind off of you. He's just "sowing his oats" and thought that you would wait for him to do it. Don't have sex with this retard, he's not thinking clearly right now.
