The Caesar & Rebbe: Punishment and Reward: The Talmud on the World to Come, Lesson 10

The Talmud introduces a compelling historical record of a series of profound questions posed by Rome’s stoic philosopher king Marcus Aurelius Antoninus to the great Torah Sage, who went on to redact the Mishna, Rebbi Yehudah HaNasi. This first in a three part mini-series focuses on seeming incongruity of divine punishment for sinful behavior or actions; as after all, who should bear the ultimate responsibility; the body or soul? The rabbi artfully employs a fascinating metaphor to convey subtle spiritual truisms to answer the emperor’s query.
