The Talmud presents a series of fascinating exchanges and related observations regarding the “dead coming back to life:” From the fearless Torah leader of the Sanhedrin who exposes a clever scriptural forgeries (crafted by local sectarians), to the Jewish Sage of Roman descent who responded to Queen Cleopatra’s strange queries about rising naked or clothed, and finally a surprising three-way encounter including a Sage, the Caesar of Rome and a palace princess. This intriguing class concludes with a thoughtful rabbinic reflection.
