Reconciling the Resurrection: The Talmud on the World to Come, Lesson 13

Scriptural statements about the post-messianic resurrection, indicate disparate prophetic traditions: souls being restored to broken bodies vs. refurbished resurrection, death forever-gone vs. extraordinary longevity, and an atmosphere of the future glowing with greater intensity or a fading sun and moon eclipsed by dazzling divinity? Reconciling these seeming contradictions lead us to illuminate the darker recesses of the Resurrection, and provides profound understanding of the uniqueness of the Jewish people's spiritual mandate, in contrast to the rest of humanity. (Tractate Sanhedrin 91b)
