One of the things my friend asked was "does it make a difference that we're all Jewish?" The unanimous answer was "YES!"
I stayed along with a a few other people and we talked some more. We came up with two reasons why it mattered to us to e with a Jewish partner. One was because only another Jew can meet some of our needs (you know the crazy stuff you carry around from your childhood). I also heard someone say "it's cool to be able to laugh at Christians and there's no one around who will get offended".
I told my to tablets joke and it got some laughs.
Do you know why the ten commandments came in two tablets? After all God could have written all of them on one tablet. So why two?
Well, God was looking for a nation to take the Torah.
God went to the French and asked them if they wanted to be his nation and keep his laws. The French asked "what's in it?" and God replied "Though shalt not commit adultery" (the truth is that that isn't exactly what it says but that's a whole other story). The French immediately replied"no, no...we can't do that".
God went to the Germans and asked them if they wanted to be his nation and keep his laws. The Germans asked "what's in it?" and God replied "Though shalt not kill". The Germans immediately replied"no, no...we can't do that".
God went to the Jews and asked them if they wanted to be his nation and keep his laws.The Jews asked "How much does it cost?" God said "it's free" the Jews said "we'll take two".
