As the Jewish holy day of Shavuot (Pentecost) begins this weekend, the Reform Judaism site publishes an interesting article entitled "Judaism Teaches: Question Authority, Think for Yourself."
The article employs a Jewish doctor's recollection of a JW patient who refused blood and died as an example of how both religious traditions greatly differ on how they see and apply God's law.
Shavuot is the day Jews recall God's giving the Law to Israel. The article is significant in that it demonstrates how Jews see the giving of the Law as a call to questioning authority, including divine revelation itself whereas the death of the JW patient is contrasted as a slavish interpretation that misses the point behind Jewish Scripture.
