Inspiration of the Talmud
Can you please give some reasons why the Jewish Talmud is not inspired by God?
The Talmud is a compilation of the oral rabbinic tradition of interpretation of the written Law of Moses. As such, it is somewhat like our Catholic understanding of the role of the Fathers of the Church in explaining the meaning of Sacred Scripture. Thus, the texts of the Talmud itself and its commentaries are not regarded as inspired but are rather authoritative discussions of the inspired words of the Torah. Some elements found in it may be regarded as representative of inspired tradition, just as with our Church Fathers, but overall the Talmud is not regarded as inspired in the way the Bible is.
The Talmud does not represent an authority for Christians but is of great interest in understanding how the Jews have understood the Law since the time of Our Lord without accepting him as the Messiah. There are, of course, elements of tradition that we Christians would also accept that have come down in the Talmud. This is not surprising; but even so, the Talmud has no intrinsic authority for us in interpreting the Old Testament.
