Your use of Hebrew seems to belie something more than your thoughts on the bible. 

Huh???

No- probably because you're on an atheist site.

The first five books of the Bible (The Hebrew Bible or "Pentateuch") beat the New Testament in terms of Bizarreness, cruelty, degradation of human life, lack of empathy and understanding human frailty, conflicting laws and claims, impossible fantasy, brutality, violence, sexism, racism, genocide, glorification of suffering, homophobia and a general sense of macabre malaise

That sounds like a Quentin Tarantino script.  I wonder when the film is coming out? :)

Meanwhile, the prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc.) which represent later Hebrew thought and later development of the Jewish religion, basically say the opposite of those first five books. Instead of listing hundreds of laws which people must follow under penalty of death, the God character in the prophets literally says he doesn't want sacrifices, he doesn't want rituals; he wants justice to flow like a river, and righteousness like a never-ending stream. There's good and bad all throughout the Bible, including the old testament books.

I suppose the ones who do are members of Abrahamic faiths, in that without the initial/Hebrew part, the Christian new testament and the Islamic Koran, etc, have no foundation.

If you add up all the faiths that therefore include that BS, the answer is most people on earth believe that BS.

After that, its merely a question of degree, in that most believe some parts, and, not others.

:D

What do you consider to be the main differences between it and the Christian version that might make it any more believable?. Even the Quran is derived from it.
