The character of the future Redemption


"Do not think that the future redemption will be like the redemption of the second Temple. It will not be so, for it will not be dependent upon the spirit of Man, like Cyrus or Darius, King of Persia. 'I will come,' I will come to you, not a man.

"Also, in the second Temple the Shechinah and prophecy did not descend (per Yoma 21b), but in the future redemption I will come and dwell among you, as in days of old."

(Abarbanel to Zecharyah 2:14)

Have a great day,
