A comprehensive, in-depth exploration of the Jewish idea of Moshiach and the future redemption

Moshiach and the Future Redemption

Moshiach and the Future Redemption

 Email

Think Judaism is about tradition? It's not!

Because the tradition itself is about something much bigger. About Abraham smashing the idols in his father's house. Moses liberating a people from slavery. Isaiah lecturing a war-hungry civilization on world peace. It's about changing the world and making it the way it's supposed to be.

Every book of Torah is filled with that idea. Every mitzvah we do is part of creating that world. Every moment of our history, that hope beats in our hearts.

Today we discover that humanity has bought into our dream. That the pieces are neatly falling in place. That rays of a new dawn have already begun to shine.

Re: culture and religion The main purpose of any religion outside of Judaism should be to encourage a moral and ethical code of living among its followers. Everything else is almost secondary. Reply

culture and religion As a doctor, with frum children and 2 sons are also doctors, but one of the doctors also became a Rabbi, I am concerned. From a scientific point of view so much of our culture and laws can be shown to be scientifically correct by today's standards. Yet they were formulated thousands of years ago, when scientific knowledge was very limited. Thus with total respect and admiration, a higher hand must have known what is correct, safe and necessary. If this is correct, then why are there so many religions with so many different rules and attitudes, and antagonistic to each other? Surely with one almighty G-d we should all follow exactly, because it can be proven that it is scientifically correct! A burning question. Reply

Cultue and religion Add a comment...Dear Mr. Levin,


First congratulations on the success of your wonderful children who clearly have achieved great things in their young lives, no doubt, your love and their exposure to Torah and Mitzvahs has been a great influence on them and the successes they enjoy. As to your question, I point to the fact that the other nations were offered the Torah first before the Jews were offered it, but the other nations rejected it, in a like matter they too reject the revealed truths regarding the profundity of G-ds Torah. This may seem like an over- simplification of your question, however, I believe it is right on point.

Respectfully,

in response to David McGrath :

You could argue that the "problem" is choice. People were created with the ability, and desire, to make their own choice. Peple do not always choose paths without influences such as pride/ego, hubris, etc. Why are there so many ways to follow G-d's teachings? Variety of views perhaps? Or just letting people make their own choices in the belief we will all reach a similar understanding. You cannot direct human beings to all believe exactly the samethings in exactly the same ways or why give us the freedom to choose?

If we are all G-d's children, and you have ever raised children, haven't you seen the benefits of teaching them the good & bad and having them make their own choices? As long as you leave the way open for them to come to you and ask all of the questions necessary to make those good choices (not just your choices), then you have been a wise parent. Are we, as adults, still not full of questions? We still ask them, don't we? Reply
