What are the books of the Zohar?


Question:
 I recently had someone give me a set of books called the Zohar.  They are ancient Hebrew writings only recently translated to English. “They unlock the secrets of the Torah.” It sounds a little Bible Code-ish to me.

 

Answer:  There is a mystical tradition in Judaism known as the Kabbalah.  The Zohar is kabbalistic teaching.  It is not part of the Bible.  There is nothing about the Zohar that directs a reader to the Lord Jesus Christ.  It may be interesting reading for the sake of awareness, but I wouldn’t waste too much time on it.  Study the Old Testament – the Old Testament itself is exhaustless!
