In this final exchange between a famous Royal Roman and a legendary Talmudic Sage they debate the proverbial question of “when life begins.” Superficially studied, it appears that the wisdom of Rome’s Philosopher King prevails, as the Sage seems to acquiesce to his position. This class draws deeply on biblical precedent and hallowed mystical tradition to demonstrate the fallacy of that approach. Based on this thesis, we elucidate the conclusion of their historic discussion on the subject of the earliest influence of the Yetzer Hara (= evil inclination) into our human consciousness.
