The Bi ble

By RABBI
MORTIMER J. COHEN
Unfortunately, the Bible is
most often dressed in gloomy
black. This mislea0 us into be-
lieving that the le is a sad,
dismal book. Nothing could be
further from the'ttuth. On the
contrary, its pages shine with
the valiant • and 'ofiimes thrill-
ing deeds of daring. men and
brave women. It leaches wis-
dom for daily living: It sings of
love and adventure.. It records
great sacrifices and :noble faith.
It is filled with beautiful and
tender poetry. it is rich with
stirring drama. It contains ma-
jestic and eloquent oratory. It
describes battles and campaigns
of swift-moving, shrewd military
leaders: It recounts how the
Jews conquered a land for them-
selves, built a glorious kingdom
there,_ and played their role in
the international world of that
age. Across its pages those in-
spired men—the Hebrew proph-
ets — whose words still ring
through the centuries, proclaim-
ing that God wants men to live
righteously and act justly. -
The Bible also exposes all the
evil deeds men do that make
life dark and sad with pain and
sorrow. It does not hide the sins
of the great. It does not excuse
the mistakes of IsraeL It re-
cords everything. The Bible is
the story of a living, exciting
world, teeming with life and
struggle; good and evil, defeat
and triumph. This story. the
Bible tells with all its varied
lights and shadows. Truly, it
should be bound in the golden
colors of the sun.

Talmudic Tractate

A tractate of the Talmud is
called a "Masseket" or "Mas-
sekta."
It is believed that this terra
comes from a root meaning "to
weave" and that the expression
originally referred to the web
or the woof of the loom. From
this source the expression came
to signify a structure and then
a composite literary construc-
tion such as a tractate of the
Talmud. Some commentaries
draw a moral inference from
this expression, by claiming that
just as the passage back and
forth of the loom makes the
fabric ever stronger and better
constructed, so does our going,
back and forth over the Tal-
mudic tractate make our knowl-
edge and our faith ever stronger
and surer. It is interesting to
note that the English word
"text," coming from the Latin
"textus" also had this same
original meaning which stem-
med from a weaving operation.
