Prohibition of In-Depth Torah Study Not Related to Noahide Code

The majority opinion about this is cited by Rabbi Moshe Weiner in "The Divine Code", Part I, Chapter 5 (Torah Study for Gentiles), topic 3 (p. 89, in bold text):

"It is permissible for a Gentile to read the [entire] twenty-four books of the Hebrew Bible ("Tanach"), even with traditional explanations of the simple meaning (like the explanations by Rashi), in order to correctly understand the verses."

In order to be sure that the translation in the Tanach he is using is reliable, the Gentile should use a Tanach translation that is published by a reliable, expert, Orthodox Jewish publishing company. (Note that the entire Tanach with the explanations by Rashi is on-line in English on Chabad.org.)
