Episode Twelve: “MESSIANIC MIRACLES II”
In the previous episode we moved on from the technical Halachik obligation of belief in Moshiach to begin clarifying our expectation of this anticipated Messianic Redeemer.
For starters will he have to preform miracles and wonders to establish his credentials as the bona fide Redeemer of Israel? The legal ruling of Maimonides (Rambam) on this very issue is crystal clear. Yet there seemed to be a major dissenting opinion.
In episode eleven we framed it in terms of a reasoned if nuanced dispute following the fault lines of prior dissenting traditions. Here we raise the stakes, clarify the nature of the Rambam’s position and forcefully demonstrate the integrity of his ruling.
In this second take on the matter, far greater clarity is achieved on the matter.
This episode is the Twelfth in an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach).
