This series features an in-depth study – in 120-byte size segments – on the Twelfth Principles of our Jewish Faith, Belief in the coming of The Messiah (Moshiach). Drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries ultimately addressing the burning issue of passively Anticipating or actively Awaiting?
Episode Five: MESSIAH IS A MITZVAH?
Backgrounder: Maimonides (the Rambam) carefully traced the Prophesized Messianic Redemption to the Pentateuch (Five Books of Moses). Verses quoted point to both The Era and the Man. He then frames Messiah in terms of a Mitzvah, the question is, why?
In other words, the Rambam introduces his last proof to demonstrate how the climax of our Jewish Faith (that has inspired the Belief of Billions) is ultimately anchored in actual Mitzvah practice.
Clearly, there is much to be achieved by anchoring belief in Messiah in actual Mitzvah Matters, in addition to the Prophetic Promises. Here, you will discover the deeper reason as to why this is so!
This comprises the fifth offering in an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach).
