Bloody sacrifices decried by the prophets no longer had any meaning. Mark 10:45: "For the Son of man himself came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." In John 2:13-25 Jesus's cleansing of the Temple makes his body the Temple. A god making flesh for hi...

?

do the christians believe that the stories in the mishna and talmud go all the way back to moses? if not, why do they not accept them as authentic?
