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 Moshiach. Drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries ultimately addressing the burning issue of passively Anticipating or actively Awaiting?
Episode Four: MITZVAH MANDATE!
Backgrounder: We’ve reviewed the sources for the Jewish ideal of the Prophesized Messianic Redemptive Process presented by Maimonides (the Rambam) from the verses of the Pentateuch (Five Books of Moses).
The biblical verses quoted covered both dimensions: The Era and the Man. Yet, the distinction between the proofs is clear with one explicit in the spiritual syntax itself, and the other only understood through the Oral Tradition. The final proof, a Messianic Mandate emerged as redundant and inconsequential.
The response to that question introduces us to the Big Idea that linking Moshiach to a Mitzvah is an exciting gamechanger that radically emphasizes how centrally important the concept of Geulah (the Messianic Redemption) is to the very essence of Judaism!
This comprises the fourth offering in an ongoing study series on The Geulah, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of Moshiach.
