I'm not sure what you're asking.

Every talmid with his or her morah's or Rebbe's tries to teach in a manner that will reach their students.

All of Torah is important.

I'm not sure off my head where it's at - Jesus or Paul or someone - I can't search right now
where they are sort of saying

"well you could do such and such and such"
"or you could do blah blah and blah"
'or...maybe you could just Love each other? you think you could try to do that?" :)
people focus on the first stuff or the second stuff as if they are Commanded
but IMO He really is just teaching them to Love

I was wondering if it was a Jewish/Rabbinic style of teaching

Not just one, but several. Orthodoxy has elements of mysticism, rationalism, mussar, chassidism, etc.

It really depends on who one's teacher is, and what one is drawn to. I prefer the more rational side.

All learning of Torah and God should be for the sake of love. Shema...

"And when Isaac was 37 years old (like wut!?) Ismael his brother was going about with him
in the tent.
And Ismael (51ish years old) boasted...
'I was thirteen when the Lord spoke to my father to circumcise us, and I did everything
to the word of the Lord which he spoke to my father, and I gave my soul to the Lord(!),
and I did not transgress His word..."
And Isaac answered...
"Why do you boast about a little piece of your flesh that was taken from your body, as the
Lord had commanded?"
"As the Lord lives, the God of my father...if the Lord should say,
'Take your son and bring him up as an offering for me'
" I would not not refrain but I would joyfully accede to it!"

"And the Lord heard the word Isaac had said, and it seemed good in His sight to
try Abraham in this matter." Jasher, ch. 22 2085AM

brothers, LOL

I feel bad for Ishmael, but I think he was a Believer.
Hagar as well, and Sarah on occasion didn't treat her to good -
Sarah seems a bit of a Karen sometimes.

Ishmael has moved far away in the Wilderness
Abraham has not seen him for some time and decides to go
He arrives at Ishmael's tent, but Ishmael is off hunting
Ishmael's wife comes out but is not friendly
Abraham asks for some water, but it is refused
she returns to the tent, and Abraham can hear her
yelling at the children
he leaves a message for Ishmael
"the nail in your tent is no good"

Ishmael gets the message
he gets rid of that wife and moves closer to Abraham and his people
Ishmael gets a new wife
Abraham again visits and leaves a new message
"the new nail is a good one"

Jews tell such great stories

"Seven men are eye witnesses to each other and (collectively) to the entire World
Adam x Methuselah x Shem x Jacob x Amram x Ahijah of Shiloh x Elijah the prophet
Elijah is still living"

"Methuselah learned directly from Adam, Shem learned directly from Methuselah
Jacob learned directly from Shem, those four (alone) lived thru 22 generations"

Explanations:

Lamech has a dream about the kid he will have (Noah)
"...whose likeness and nature were unlike other men.
His color is white as snow and redder than the bloom of a rose,
and the hair of his head is whiter than wool and eyes like
the rays of the sun."
(sound like an Albino to me, but not saying he definitively was)

Lamech freaks,
"It suddenly occurred to me that the conception could be from Watchers,
the seed of Holy Ones, or Nephilim.
My mind wavered concerning this baby..."

so he goes and basically accuses his wife (Batenosh, daughter of Enos)
of infidelity, and boy is she respectfully not pleased. LOL
He goes to Enoch, and Enoch tells him to chill (Enoch knows angels good and bad on a first name basis)
the special kid and also the child's eventual three sons will be saved from the Flood.
- testament of Lamech, DDS 1Q20
the story is also in book of Enoch, ch. 106-107

-

Why did Noah curse Canaan (not Ham)?

Noah also had a prophetic dream -
Ham and descendants were given Africa, but his son Canaan ditched there
and went up to the area of where Tyre and Sidon would eventually be
the reason is, he wants to be close to Mount Hermon, which is where the 200 Watchers had come down to
Canaan wants to try to revive the stuff going on before the Flood
(genetic tampering and a sort of demonic Global false religious system, again going on Today, no?)
his relative Nimrod will eventually be a mighty bad boy on the Earth

Noah is prophetically aware of what Canaan and Nimrod will do, so is pre-emptively cursing them
Canaanites (and giants) will be in the Land when the Israelites show up later
the Canaanites were not only evil, they were not supposed to be there in the first place
- testament of Noah, DDS 1Q20
