Divine Messiah in Jewish Thought, The
Rabbi Itzhak Shapira, Instructor
The argument for the Deity of the Messiah is often one of the most foreign and challenging concepts for Jewish people to receive. In this Yeshiva course we will address the issue of the Deity of the Messiah through classical Rabbinical literature. The Yeshiva course is based on the groundbreaking book The Return of the Kosher Pig (www.kosherpig.org). This Yeshiva offers a fascinating overview of the issue of the Deity of Messiah within Normative Judaism. Some of the topics covered: · Is the deity of the Messiah supported by rabbinical writing? · What is the framework and the definition of the Jewish Messiah within Judaism? · What are the common objections to the divine Jewish Messiah?
