Given the incomparable significance of the Torah, what is the function of prophecy and of the prophetic books, the Neviim (“Prophets”) and Ketuvim (“Hagiographa”), composed after the Torah was given at Sinai? And why did the era of prophecy end?
Absolutely Delightful and enlightning!!!! Thank you so much!!!

I liked your distinction about Moses in relation to the Prophets and writings. I think this is important in proper interpretation of truth. Very well done. Your gift with humor makes the material very accessible to an audience that is intimidated by these topics. You really went above and beyond the call here. Bravo.

Does not Michael Chighel teach and give knowledge? Is he not a teacher? Then your answer to knowledge is before you, ask of whom teaches and lessons become your vision. Never underestimate your own ability to discover truth though study, all are children at one time until we study we remain ignorant but sometimes we fall then attempt again until we find solution. Never stop learning, our fundlememtal foundation is knowledge through study, teaching children what we learn, learning the cost of war, learning the cost of peace. Hope, love, knowledge are all good, where upon the content of opposite shows war, misery, pain. Through lessons we hope to learn, we love our parents as teachers, our hope is to find peace upon this land of violence but is our choice how we proceed further toward our goal. What is our goal? Knowledge of the Devine is love. Try not to judge those whom harm, they are ignorant children who need lessons, yet we all need to learn more and never judge. My opinion.

The wisdom of the Torah and the future of humanity
If it hadn't been for the Torah the world would have been in total chaos and that is what we are facing in our days for most of humanity rejects it as being given by G-D and follows various other religions omitting the only and true word of G-d given by His prophet Moshe. In his way Dr. Rabbi Chighel allows us to see the humoristic and spiritual meaning of what the Book of Books is all about, Direction and Motivation, reaching to the Eternal Truth of the Wisdom of G-d and His infinite wisdom and the Torah's timeless validity.

This is a wonderful series. It's entertaining and provides so much value from an education point of view. Just two episodes so far have answered many questions I had about the Torah and what makes up the Torah. Thank you.

Love love love what you have baked up!
I really love the Patach voweled Shin in the your series title. The servant of the King who has the open mouth is the Patach and the Shin that separates or makes holy. Shah! So cool! Nice, easy to understand yet with hidden stuff to hunt. What's not to love and I can't wait for them all to be revealed. You are an awesome Yid!

Understanding of truth
Alex the Great, answer to the question above had faith. Most confuse loss of knowledge to unknown but was never unknown. Lost, hidden, but known. Eventually we find our way back into the fold, either to lead or follow. Regardless, it is most important to remember one clear factor. Our duty is to serve those in greatest need not our selfish greed. Our duty is upon each to decide. We answer to whom? G-d, I disagree with abbreviating name, it to me is blasphemy because I know name differently. I refrain from statement of pronunciation 13 syllabus it is beautiful to know but unimportant to write. Study, learn, knowledge, this discussion is more important because it shows desire toward truth, hope, faith, life, joy, peace, love, these words show how struggle becomes truth if remembered. My mother wanted me to receive blessing from leaders to know my tribe of Israel, yet I already knew. Judah & Zaraphia; Joseph; my houses, my father lineage inscribed upon a cane old twisted but inherited.
