Attempting to challenge a teaching about minor-resurrection in early messianic-times, the Talmud evokes Ezekiel’s vision of the dry bones that rattled and came to life; casting them as an earlier prototype of futuristic phenomenon. Deftly parrying, our Sages defend the initial thesis – pointing to a mainstream school of thought that sees this event as purely allegorical. To demonstrate its validity, the Talmud presents 3 approaches to viewing this prophecy; the opening opinion is richly elucidated in this profoundly thought-provoking presentation. (Tractate Sanhedrin 92b)
