I have recorded a second episode of my ‘Understanding Moshiach’ podcast. There’s a lot of stuff from the Kessin brothers, and more material here that I have not put up on the blog. Running time is about a half hour.
Here’s the blurb from Itunes:
We continue on our scenic journey by starting with an understanding of the Jewish concept of God’s oneness. This is fundamental to a conversation of Moshiach, because we see that the verse speaks of the days of Moshiach by saying, ‘On that day God will be One and His name will be One. This is the goal of the entire process. Then we speak of the changing role of the Satan and the jobs of Moshiach ben Yosef and Moshiach ben Dovid, as well as the Jewish people’s mission to reclaim the sparks of Holiness that descend to the other side. These can be claimed by the Jewish people in three ways – Keeping the commandments, repenting, and experiencing difficulty. This guarantees the Jewish people will never lose their special role in bringing the world to perfection, no matter if they keep the commandments or if they sin, Heaven forbid. This is discussed at length, and specifically brought to the fore from the story of the Jewish people in Egypt. Listen and enjoy.
