I first placed this in the Scripture section, but I have not received any help.
I have struggled with many little questions and answers, and answers and questions.
Exodus 24: 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the LORD has said; we will obey.”
Rabbi Bonder says that this is saying, “do and then believe.”
Is this one of the traditional Jewish interpretations of this passage?
Thus I have run to see if this is accurate. If it is, then does it applies to faith without acts is dead? Let me invert it: “It is works that actually give rise to faith.” Or, “It is doing or works that give life to faith”
Is this traditional Jewish thought? Have I understood Bonder?
