Episode Nine: MESSIANIC PROPHECY
In our previous episodes we greatly elaborated on the multiple (both theoretical, and practical) virtues and the legal ground Maimonides (Rambam) gained by presenting the Promise of Messianic Redemption in an actual Mitzvah obligation.
In this episode we return to the Messianic Prophecies of Balaam. A careful analysis the unusually crisp verbiage of Maimonides seems to reveal a well sourced anomaly.
Discover why the verses of scripture to be quoted are first introduced by the Rambam as “Prophetic,” and gain valuable insight and appreciation for the precision-driven nature of Maimonidean Codes, the Mishna Torah.
This brilliant read into the Rambam’s precise syntax illustrates how the seemingly unnecessary mention of Prophecy provides a unique and significant added ramification.
With the Messianic Redemption overtly linked to “prophecy” the importance of embracing this Faith Principle becomes even more important and denying a prophecy amounts to a unique denial of G-d’s communication humanity!
This episode is the ninth in an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach).
