old testament interpretations

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread

is the old testament the book used by Judaism?

if it is, dont they have more authority to interpret it because its their book, much like the catholic church has more authority to interpret the bible than protestant because its our book?

are there conflicting interpretations of the old testament between Christianity and Judaism?

Also sacred, the Talmud and the Syaings of the Early Jewish Fathers.
