Go up Like a Wall

SKU: E-J-85 Category:

Go Up Like a Wall is a study companion to the Books of the Prophets that deal with the early Second Temple period. The author analyzes the text and traditional Jewish commentaries, with an emphasis on the parallels between this period and modern times. The author debunks the myth that the Jewish people must wait for the Messiah before returning to Israel “like a wall”, and in fact demonstrates that their failure to do so has hindered and delayed the redemption process. Other major themes of the book include Israel’s dependence on other nations for approval and support, Israel’s reliance on its own military might, and trying to determine what God expects of the Jewish people in absence of living prophets to provide clear instructions.In addition to offering great insight into serious issues facing Israel and the Jewish people, this book provides an excellent tool for understanding the different approaches of classic commentators to textual and theological issues.
