I am currently brainstorming a 1st C Galilee campaign - mostly focused around an investigation of a certain person from Nazareth (with a huge Mythos emphasis!)..
I am planning on one Investigator being a Sadducee sent up from Jerusalem to uncover the (awful) truth. As such it would be helpful to understand the Torah and its implication on Jewish thought and society.
I read the Bible (in my youth) and so I am aware of the Pentateuch/Torah's literary composition and the broadest implications of it on Jewish life, and obviously, the Ten Commandments are a good place to start. But I would like (without buying and reading the Bible afresh) to be able to utilise and (mostly accurately) depict it within Jewish society for both Investigators and NPC's.
To that end I wondered if anyone out there can recommend a website that gives a summary of the Torah and (if possible) how it impacts on a faithful Jews life.
With thanks, in anticipation.
