Defending Israel in Antiquity: Abrahamic Ancestry & Ishmaelite Inheritance: The Talmud on the World to Come, Lesson 9

The final courtroom drama in this mini-series features the resurrection of an ancient conflict between powerful personalities of times bygone and their contested connection to Canaan. This time our sagacious hunchback faces off with the purported Umah descended from Ishmael and offspring of Abraham’s righteous concubine Keturah, nefariously seeking a “two-state solution” for the Land of Israel. When the biblical narrative is presented as positive proof that our homeland had to be shared, the sage deftly demonstrated clear scriptural proof to the contrary.

Hello, Rabbi Kaplan
I am listening to your 9th series about Defending Israel in Antiquity: Abramhamic Ancestry and Ismaelite Inheritance. Studying law in and of itself requires intense thought and focus especially in the application of Jewish law. Do you have a handout on this lesson? I already know what HaShem said in the Torah. Thank you. Reply
