wow

Rabbi that is the most profound video i have ever seen . That is the question i have asked myself countless times why Jews do not believe Jesus was not the messiah. You're answers are like a giant load off my back because i thought maybe i was the only one that sees the contradictions of the new testament. Again thank you and may G-D bless you !!!!

For Argument's Sake

For the sake of argument, what if he is Moshiach, but has been taken so far out of context and misrepresented for two millenia to the point that he is no longer recognizable? The Torah tells us that all of the "evidence" supported Jacob's and the 11 brothers' belief that Joseph was dead. When in fact he was alive and well and reigning among the getiles of Mitzrayim. All the while, Joseph was working for the good of Israel, his father, and his brothers. At long last, when the moment was right, he revealed his true identity to his brothers and to the Egyptians (imagine their surprise). Then Joseph fulfilled his role which began so many years before. Like the sages have said, "The Messiah you expected is never coming. The Messiah that is coming, you never expected." or something like that. Thank you for the video, Rabbi Becher. Shabbat Shalom.
