The Bible is in two parts. The Old Testament which is Jewish and pre-dates Jesus and the New Testament which post dates Jesus. Then there is the Koran which incorporates some of both and post dates Mohammed.
In English society it is said that there are two things you never discuss in a Pub (Bar) one is religion the other is politics.

as a catholic, i have read the Bible many times. i don't think a summer holiday a enough and specific time for you to read the whole book because it takes a lot time to figure out what exactly God is driving at. i can ensure you that.
Reading the Bible is not for fun but for humanity. Only by that way can you understand fully what it's about.
that's just my opinion, what do u think?

I'm also a catholic but I don't really read the Bible. I've read it a few times when I was younger but now I just don't do it. I guess I should get back to it sometime because it contains a lot of wise stuff.

Then you are probably a Catholic but not a Christian.
It is up to you to study scripture......not your priest!

It is not accurate to call The Old Testament "Jewish". The old Testament covers the history of humankind from the Creation to the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. Seen through the eyes of Hebrew people. The "JEWS" are only what is left of the Israelites. There were 12 tribes but the 10 tribes of the northern regions of Israel were taken captive by Assyrrians leaving only the tribe of Judah and Benjamin who are now referred to as the "Jews". It is important to make this distinction in order to fully understand prophecy for the future and past.

The koran has nothing at all to do with the Bible. The Koran contradicts the Bible and was written by a mass murderer and his scribes, Mohammed. It was written some 600 years after the life of Jesus.

Catholics are Christians in a sense. You all believe in Jesus Christ.

This is exactly what he meant by the Jewish part. Jewish people still wait for their savior.

He said "The old Testament is Jewish". It is not!


And Catholics can not be Christian since they started the myth of Mary worsip. Not only this, they have changed and rewritten the 10 Commandments.

Also the Pope has said that he is Jesus's representative on Earth! What a load of Poop!

The Old Testament covers the history of Judaism and Hebrew history. How is it not "Jewish" when Jewish don't believe in Jesus Christ as their savior whose life was covered in the New Testament???? :?

Roman Catholics, Protestans, Orthodox, etc. are all the same to me, well, except Jewish. You all believe in one God and Jesus Christ as a savior, which makes you Christian.

I read only some extracts from Bible for children long-long time ago... don't feel like I want to read the whole book and for adults one... we don't even have a sample at home... I don't think something terrible will happen due to this fact :roll:

Lucky you! Here they give it out for free. When you walk on the street, here goes a Bible for you to read when you get home. When you go to school, here goes a Bible for you to read when you feel stressed with school and such. When you're at home, here goes a Bible for you to read to protect your house and soul and probably change your belief if you believe in other religion. Everywhere you stay there will be a Bible for you. Same thing with Islam. :roll:

I don't take the book - just cookies!

not so long time ago I took a survey, it uncluded fifty-something questions concerning my viewpoints and beliefs, those ones eventually were to define what religion suits me... It turned out I'm very close to buddhism :D
I'm young to determine it, it will come one day or not...

I took it as well (probably not the same test, I guess), and it turned out I wasn't a Buddhist but a spiritual person. I found it "insulting" because I was darn sure I was a Buddhist. :lol: :lol:
