I have remarked that the Torah is written in allegories to communicate to the
masses and the intellectuals and I have done some very fruitful Biblical
interpretation resting on that conviction supported by Jewish scholars themselves.
Regardless of whether or not one grasps the surface or the deep allegory, the
behavioral admonitions at each level are the same which means you can be a
Christian regardless of the depth to which you intellectually penetrate the
Scriptures. As long as you behave like a Christian, you are a Christian. You
don't have to understand the hows or whys. You just have to surrender.
Christianity is the correct religion. It requires only the self sacrifice.
