I think you are right Skylark. I read those same magazines Greg plus the bible and many other religious books such as book of Mormon and the apochryfal works excluded from the bible along with some science fiction, textbooks etc. think I have a pretty rounded reading life, or did have. I am pretty limited on what I read these days or watch on tv. Also very limted on perusiing the internet. No Flicka the internet for me is kind of like toe dipping to test the temp of the water. I have backed away from the world many decades ago but probably did take a quick dip for a time without leaving God behind. Probably the most miserable time of my life. No not probable, that was for sure! still havepoints of confliction in my theology, not with the bible but with me and my bias in interpretation. God is still working on me and most likely will be when I draw my last breath. Only the blood sacrifced by Jesus makes me acceptable to God. Paul
Many are discovering it for themselves, Flicka. I don't have any religious Jewish friends that I know about. I kind of knew a couple who came to our church for a while but they have moved on. Jews are in our population most everywhere. God always keeps a remnant of His people. Amazing but it has kind of come into focus in my mind from bible study that Israel and its sojourners who live with them will be the new Adam and Eve in God's garden and will remain physically human in all respects and procreate to populate the universe perhaps. They will have access to the tree's of life along the river of life and live forever and be as populous as the sands of the sea. We still have much to learn about God's eternal plan concerning His covenant people.

And the story continues to get even more amazing.
It's probably for the best that you have no Jewish friends to discuss this with...
