An evil man for whom life goes badly: this is an evil man who is the son of an evil man. His ancestors did not entitle him to eat in this world and he will not entitle himself to eat in the World to Come.38 Here we see the struggle of ...

A number of the basic tenets of Jewish belief regarding the afterlife, resurrection, immortality, judgment, messianism, and the world to come are laid out in this fascinating and accessible volume. Beginning with the Bible’s references to Sheol and its allusions to resurrection, this survey explores immortality and bodily resurrection in Second Temple literature; the Mishnah’s discussions of olam ha-ba, or the world to come, and how to merit entry into it; and the Talmud’s depictions of paradise and hell, and the soul’s journey through these metaphysical landscapes. The book also explores the views of medieval scholars such as Maimonides and Nahmanides, Jewish mystical teachings about reincarnation, and modern views of faith and belief, as well as the evolving view of the Messiah over the course of Jewish history. This absorbing study demonstrates that the afterlife is indeed a vital part of Judaism as it reveals how generations of Jews, from biblical times to the present, have grappled with the core ideas and beliefs about the hereafter.
The assumption here is that the world is inherently good and life here on earth must be given its proper due and not be collapsed into the next world . This is not to say that Judaism negates or minimizes the world to come , or views it ...

Yakar L'Mordecai commemorates forty years of Rabbi Waxman's service to Temple Israel of Great Neck; it was initiated by his grateful congregants and carried through by his colleagues and friends. It mirrors his interests in and contributions to Jewish scholarship and thought, and is divided into four sections, each pertaining to an area in which Rabbi Waxman has been involved. Part I is a retrospective of Rabbi Waxman's career in the rabbinate and in Jewish scholarship; Part II, on Jewish thought, contains articles which reflect the honoree's broad knowledge of the topic, from Biblical studies to contemporary theology. Part III deals with Jewish-Christian relations, as well as the position of Jews in various parts of the world in their relations with the surrounding cultures, and Part IV with American Judaism. Along with the many other contributions, this volume contains articles by Rabbi Waxman's later father and wife and one by his son, Rabbi Jonathan Waxman.

In these expositions, author Tim James demonstrates the book of Hebrews to show more fully than any other New Testament book that in Christ and His High Priestly ministry is to be found the fulfillment of the types, shadows and pictures of the priesthood and the offerings of the Old Testament. The inspired writer of Hebrews, without introduction or greeting, immediately sets before us that One to whom all the Old Testament pointed. The Lord Jesus Christ is that Word by whom God speaks to men and through whom we speak to God. Tim reminds us that Hebrews sets forth Christ as being better than the angels, the prophets and the priests of the Old Testament, and His sacrifice fully accomplished the salvation of God’s people. The New Covenant, Tim points out, is more excellent than the Old Covenant and Jesus Christ is not only the message of the New Covenant, but the Messenger of it as well. With clarity and simplicity, Tim sets forth the superiority of Christ and the power of his once-for-all sacrifice that “perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14). In a very methodical manner, Tim instructs the reader that the New Covenant exceeds the Old which has been done away with. This letter to the Hebrews (and all others) is a warning to all who forsake the gospel of free grace and return to the law as either a refuge for salvation or even as a rule of life. If a person professes to believe the gospel of Christ and then goes back to a legalistic system, such a treasonous act means that person, as Tim says, “will have no part in the world to come, where a man, the Man, the Messiah rules with His people.” As the author works his way through this Epistle, the reader will appreciate that he avoids technical and deep theological jargon and writes instead in an easy-to-read manner. While reading this manuscript, you will find the book to be not only an accurate exposition, but a very good devotional book as the author continually keeps the focus upon Christ and His substitutionary, justice-satisfying work of redemption.
