before the chapters and verses of the high middle ages, reference was made
to the palestinian sedarim and babylonian parashot. can one find canonical
lists of names, titles, etc. for these particular divisions? for example,
exodus ch. 18, as what ....? "yithro"? exodus ch. 20 as "ten
commandments"? etc? any directions will be appreciated....

It seems as though humanity has forgotten the precepts of its divine
Saviour, Who preached love and forgiveness of injuries, and that men
ascribe the greatest merit to the art of killing one another.
