Did you know that there is a specific view on the seven years before the Messiah comes? The audio continues a bit further discussing the Torah portion that was the main content of the teaching.

Wikipedia states the following to summarize the Jewish view of the end times.

The main tenets of Jewish eschatology are the following, in no particular order, elaborated in the Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel:

  • God redeems Israel (i.e. the Jewish people) from the captivity that began during the Babylonian Exile, in a new Exodus
  • God returns all the Jews to the Land of Israel and resettles them in the Land
  • God restores the House of David and the Temple in Jerusalem
  • God creates a regent from the House of David (i.e. the Messiah) to lead the Jewish people and the world and usher in an age of justice and peace
  • All nations recognize that the God of Israel is the only true God
  • God resurrects the dead
  • God creates a new heaven and a new earth
  • It is also believed that history will complete itself and the ultimate destination will be reached when all mankind returns to the Garden of Eden.

Check out Jewisheyes.org for full audio. The source site for the full content requires registration, but its free, quick & should be worth it if you liked this snippet. 🙂 This is the 10th teaching (Miketz / “At the end”) in the Genesis series under ‘archives’.
