Drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries ultimately addressing the burning issue of passively Anticipating or actively Awaiting?
Episode Six: MESSIAH: MITZVAH GUARANTEED!
Backgrounder: Maimonides (the Rambam) quotes Pentateuch (Five Books of Moses). Verses but then anchors the Promise of Messianic Redemption in an actual Mitzvah obligation. We’ve already established that this endows its a greater degree of certainty.
In this episode we explore the jurisprudence and advantage of linking our belief in Moshiach to actual Mitzvah Matters, in addition to the power of Prophetic Promises.
In adding the Torah’s commanding syntax of the Cities of Refuge to the Promising Language of Prophecy, the Rambam makes this foundational element of our Jewish Faith even more immutable.
This comprises the sixth offering in an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach).
