Jewish thinkers have always been bothered by the existence of suffering and evil, but in modern times, as a result of the Holocaust, it has taken on a central role in the thought of almost all contemporary Jewish theologians. For Jews, the problem of suffering is twofold: there is a universal problem and a particular problem. The universal problem is a philosophical one; it is not just a problem for Jews, but for anyone who conceives of G-d in a certain way. If G-d knows everything, then G-d knows about all evil. If G-d is all-powerful, then G-d can prevent all evil. If G-d is perfectly good, then G-d should prevent all evil. And yet, evil exists. How can this be true? Historically, Jewish thinkers did not articulate the problem of evil in this way until the Middle Ages. Earlier Jewish literature conceives of G-d as powerful, good, and knowledgeable, but not necessarily perfectly so. It was the particular problem of suffering and evil–a problem resulting from the unique relationship between G-d and the Jews–that occupied early Jewish literature. According to the Torah, the covenant at Sinai, in which the Israelites agreed to abide by the commandments, established that the Jews would be rewarded if they followed G-d’s ways. And yet, suffering often seems to be meted out randomly. Righteous people suffer and wicked people prosper. How can this be reconciled with the covenantal relationship between G-d and the Jews? The problem of justifying G-d, despite the existence of evil is known as theodicy. There are several types of solutions to the problem of suffering and evil. The biblical book of Job suggests that it is fruitless for humans to try and figure out why G-d causes some righteous people to suffer. While this approach may subvert the concept of reward and punishment, many rabbinic figures, as well as medieval philosophers and mystics, retained this concept by turning to eschatology; that is, they believed that reward and punishment is meted out in the afterlife, or–for those medieval mystics who believed in reincarnation–in a future lifetime. From the movie War and Remembrance Aaron Jastrow Story of Job https://youtu.be/FwqohkCRylY “The universe doesn't always make sense. There is no guarantee of good fortune for good behavior; Crazy injustice is part of the enigma of the world and of our brief lives. My friends this is the thought I want to leave with you. Who is it in history that suffers ordeal after ordeal? Plundering after plundering? Massacre after massacre? Century after century? Yet looks up at the sky, sometimes with dying eyes and cries, The Lord our G-d, the Lord is one!! Who until then will leave the fearful mystery of undeserved suffering to G-d and praise his name saying the Lord has given and the lord taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord! Amen;” My personal thoughts on the suffering of mankind is that G-d is preparing us for the coming of the Mashiach. Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah - Chapter 33 5. They come to war with the Chaldeans and to fill them with the corpses of the men whom I have smitten with My anger and with My wrath, and that which I have hidden My face from this city because of all their evil. Now Chaldeans is Assyria and Babylon, there are historical connections of Syria to ancient Assyria, and Babylon is now in Iraq. Look at what's happening today. The signs are there. 6. Behold, I will bring it healing and cure, and I will cure them, and I will reveal to them a greeting of peace and truth. God's mercy unto his people and to Israel. The Jews are G-d's people, and G-d will shed his mercy upon them, so it is written many times in the Tanakh! And there is more. 7. And I will return the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel, and build them up like at first. Verse 7 speaks of a time when the House of Israel is reunited with the House of Judah, and build them up like at first. However, the House of Israel, which was made up of the Ten Lost Tribes, have been lost and scattered around the world since the fall of the Northern Kingdom around 721 B.C.E.. The House of Israel, the Ten Lost Tribes, cannot be re-united with the House of Jacob, because the House of Israel has not been around for thousands of years, that is why they are called the Ten LOST Tribes. This passage in Jeremiah is describing a Jewish People where all of the descendants of every tribe thrives, and has made their way to the Promised Land. Because it speaks of both the House of Israel and the House of Judah together, with G-d, in a single new covenant, and since the House of Israel cannot be unified with the House of Judah, this entire passage has not happened yet. 10. So said the Lord: There shall again be heard in this place, concerning which you say, "It is desolate without man and without beast," in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem that are desolate without a man and without an inhabitant and without a beast, And so it was, desolate without man and without beast. Read Mark Twain tour of palestine 1867. And now Israel is blooming with fruit and flowers. G-d's promise to his people, but yet more is to come, for who knows the workings of G-d? Before the time of the mashiach, there shall be war and suffering Yechezkel - Ezekiel - Chapter 38 2."Son of man, set your face toward Gog, [toward] the land of Magog, the prince, the head of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy concerning him. 3.And you shall say; So said the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, Gog, the prince, the head of Meshech and Tubal 4.And I shall unbridle you, and I shall put hooks into your jaws and bring you forth and all your army, horses and riders, all of them clothed in finery, a great assembly, with encompassing shield and buckler, all of them grasping swords. 5.Persia, Cush, and Put are with them; all of them with buckler and helmet. 6.Gomer and all its wings, the house of Togarmah, the utmost parts of the north and all its wings, many peoples with you. Iran from the North and Russia from the utmost north!!!!! Now, for those who have been keeping up on world events, Russia, form utmost North has joined with Iran from the north and are in Syria, which was Assyria. Looks to me to be prophesy coming true right before our eyes!!! I believe we are now living in the time where we will so all these prophecies come true, I believe it started in 1948 with the modern state of Israel. And for the return of the Jews to their homeland, this may come as a shock to you, I believe that is the reason for anti-Semitism in Europe, it is to get the Jews to go home. From the Website that helps Jews make Aliyah; Nefesh B'Nefesh “Jewish emigration from western Europe is at historically unprecedented levels in the wake of growing disquiet about antisemitism “ You may be asking yourself, why would G-d cause his people to be hated? And I say who knows the ways of G-d? G-d created time and space, according to Genesis the sun was created on day 4, so how long was a day to G-d? That’s another couple of pages, so I won’t get into that. I just wanted to point out that the how’s and why’s of G-d is beyond our understanding. So why did cause the Jews to suffer for generation to generation? Why did G-d cause the Israelites to wonder for 40 years, when the trip should have taken 40 days? Regardless of all this, I believe that what we’re seeing in France with the Jews, and many other places in the world, will be seen here in the USA, and I also believe that is G-d’s way to get the Jews to go home to Israel, and then we will see the Temple, built, and then G-d’s anointment of the new king of Israel, and the Messiah that we are all looking for.

  • Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah - Chapter 31
    30 Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, and I will form a covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, a new covenant.
    31 Not like the covenant that I formed with their forefathers on the day I took them by the hand to take them out of the land of Egypt, that they broke My covenant, although I was a lord over them, says the Lord.

    Notice that the verse starts out with “Behold, days are coming, says the Lord” This is considered a prophecy because of the first words of the verse, “Behold, days are coming, says the Lord.” However, immediately before these few verses that begin with verse 30, there are additional verses that also begin the exact same way, with the words, “Behold, days are coming, says the Lord.” The whole prophecy actually begins with verse 26.

    26 Behold days are coming, says the Lord, and I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with seed of man and seed of beasts.

    Verse 26 speaks of a time when the House of Israel is reunited with the House of Judah, and when they increase in size as well as in resources.

    27 And it shall be, as I have watched over them to uproot and to break down, to demolish and to destroy and to afflict, so will I watch over them to build and to plant, says the Lord.

    Then G-d states that just as He watched over the Jews when He saw fit to punish them, so, too, will He continue to watch over the Jews as everything gets better:

    28 In those days, they shall no longer say, "Fathers have eaten unripe grapes, and the teeth of the children shall be set on edge."
    29 But each man shall die for his iniquity; whoever eats the unripe grapes- his teeth shall be set on edge

    Jeremiah is saying that when those days come, all will recognize, as the Bible has said repeatedly (See Exodus 32:30-35; Deuteronomy 24:16; and Ezekiel 18:1-4) that the person who sins will always be the only one who gets the punishment for that sin. This is what it states quite simply in Deuteronomy 24:16, No man shall be put to death for the sins of his children, no child will be put to death for the sins of his father. Every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

    30 Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, and I will form a covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, a new covenant.

    However, the House of Israel, which was made up of the Ten Lost Tribes, have been lost and scattered around the world since the fall of the Northern Kingdom around 721 B.C.E.

    This passage in Jeremiah is describing a Jewish People where all of the descendants of every tribe thrives, and has made their way to the Promised Land. Because it speaks of both the House of Israel and the House of Judah together, with G-d, in a single new covenant, and since the House of Israel cannot be unified with the House of Judah.

    The Jews are too comfortable in their Diaspora, and so for this prophecy to become reality ALL JEWS MUST return to the holy land of Israel.

    The return of the Jews to Israel started in 1948 with the New State of Israel, and continues today as Jews are making aliyah in masse due to anti-Semitism. G-d works in mysterious ways and at his own time.

    G-d is not finished and so as anti-Semitism grows, Jews continue to make Aliayh. Unlike all the inquisitions, and Pogroms of the past, the Jews now have a home to return to. When all Jews have returned to the Promised Land, they will eventually form into their perspective tribes, thus fulfilling this prophecy.

    Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah - Chapter 23
    5 Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, when I will set up of David a righteous shoot, and he shall reign a king and prosper, and he shall perform judgment and righteousness in the land
    6 In his days, Judah shall be saved and Israel shall dwell safely, and this is his name that he shall be called, The Lord is our righteousness.
    7 Therefore, behold days are coming, says the Lord, when they shall no longer say, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,"
    8 But, "As the Lord lives, Who brought up and Who brought the seed of the house of Israel from the northland and from all the lands where I have driven them, and they shall dwell on their land."

    This leads us, now, to look at the next two verses of our passage:

    31 Not like the covenant that I formed with their forefathers on the day I took them by the hand to take them out of the land of Egypt, that they broke My covenant, although I was a lord over them, says the Lord.
    32 For this is the covenant that I will form with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will place My law in their midst and I will inscribe it upon their hearts, and I will be their God and they shall be My people

    What these verses are saying is that everyone will no longer need to look in any book, neither a 'New Testament,' nor even the Hebrew Scriptures, to tell them what is Right and what is Wrong. They will know it instinctively because it will be in their hearts, truly making G-d their G-d, and in turn, truly making them G-d's People.

    What, precisely, does it mean to have G-d's Torah written in our innermost parts?

    I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy Torah is within my heart. [Psalm 40:8]

    Because G-d's Torah is within us, we know what we are to do, and we are happy to do it.

    'I will inscribe my Torah upon their hearts.' The laws of G-d do not change or get changed, they are eternal as G-d is Eternal:

    Devarim - Deuteronomy - Chapter 29
    28 The hidden things belong to the Lord, our God, but the revealed things apply to us and to our children forever: that we must fulfill all the words of this Torah.

    Tehillim - Psalms - Chapter 19
    8 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the Lord is faithful, making the simple one wise
    9 The orders of the Lord are upright, causing the heart to rejoice; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes.
    10 The fear of the Lord is pure, existing forever; the judgments of the Lord are true, altogether just.

    Tehillim - Psalms - Chapter 111
    7 The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His commandments are faithful.
    8 Steadfast forever, made in truth and uprightness

    As a matter of fact, Ezekiel 11:17-20 reflects the ideas found in Jeremiah 31:26-34: that G-d's laws will be in our hearts, not books, in the messianic age, which will last forever:

    Therefore say, Thus saith the Etrnl G-d; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their G-d. [Ezekiel 11:17-20]

    As I wrote above, this new covenant that G-d speaks about in Jeremiah 31 is not talking about a new covenant, a new contract, and He does not mean a new set of laws, a new Torah, a new scripture. It means the covenant between G-d and the Jews and the laws of that covenant are eternal.

    Finally, the text from Jeremiah 31 reads,

    33 And no longer shall one teach his neighbor or [shall] one [teach] his brother, saying, "Know the Lord," for they shall all know Me from their smallest to their greatest, says the Lord, for I will forgive their iniquity and their sin I will no longer remember

    This new covenant means that no one will have say 'Know the L-rd,' because the whole world will already believe in G-d.

    34 So said the Lord, Who gives the sun to illuminate by day, the laws of the moon and the stars to illuminate at night, Who stirs up the sea and its waves roar, the Lord of Hosts is His name.
    Yirmiyahu - Jeremiah - Chapter 31 30 Behold, days are coming, says the Lord, and I will form a covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, a new covenant. 31 Not like the covenant that I formed with their forefathers on the day I took them by the hand to take them out of the land of Egypt, that they broke My covenant, although I was a lord over them, says the Lord.

  • End time Prophecy Daniel chapter 7

    Daniel - Chapter 7
    1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream, and the visions of his mind [while asleep] on his bed; then he wrote the dream and said the beginnings of the matters.
    2 Daniel raised his voice and said: I saw in my vision during the night, and behold the four winds of the heavens were stirring up the Great Sea.
    3 And four huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one different from the other.
    4 The first one was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle, until its wings were plucked and it was taken from the earth, and it stood on feet like a man, and the heart of a mortal was given it.
    5 And behold another second beast, resembling a bear, and it stood to one side, and there were three ribs in its mouth between its teeth, and so did they say to it, 'Get up, eat much meat.'
    6 After this, I saw, and behold another one, like a leopard, and it had four wings of a bird on its back, and the beast had four heads, and dominion was given it.
    7 After this, I saw in the visions of the night, and behold a fourth beast, awesome and dreadful and exceedingly strong, and it had huge iron teeth. It ate and crushed, and trampled the rest with its feet, and it was different from all the beasts that were before me, and it had ten horns.
    8 I looked at these horns and behold another small horn came up among them, and three of the first horns were plucked out before it, and behold eyes like human eyes were on this horn, and a mouth speaking arrogantly.
    9 I was looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days sat; His raiment was as white as snow, and the hair of His head was like clean wool; His throne was sparks of fire, its wheels were a burning fire.
    10 A river of fire was flowing and emerging from before Him; a thousand thousands served Him, and ten thousand ten thousands arose before Him. Justice was established, and the books were opened.
    11 I saw then from the sound of the arrogant words that the horn spoke, I looked until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to a flame of fire.
    12 But as for the other beasts, their dominion was removed, and they were given an extension of life until a set time.
    13 I saw in the visions of the night, and behold with the clouds of the heaven, one like a man was coming, and he came up to the Ancient of Days and was brought before Him.
    14 And He gave him dominion and glory and a kingdom, and all peoples, nations, and tongues shall serve him; his dominion
    is an eternal dominion, which will not be removed, and his kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.
    15 My spirit-I, Daniel-became troubled within its sheath, and the visions of my mind terrified me.
    16 I drew near to one of those standing [there], and I asked him the truth of all this, and he told it to me, and he let me know the interpretation of the matters.
    17 [He said] "These huge beasts, which are four, are four kingdoms, which will arise from the earth.
    18 And the high holy ones will receive the kingdom, and they will inherit the kingdom forever and to all eternity
    19 Then I wished to determine the truth of the fourth beast, which was different from all of them- excessively dreadful; its teeth were of iron and its nails of copper; it ate and crushed to powder, and the rest it trampled with its feet.
    20 And concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and the other one that came up and [the] three [that] fell before it, and the horn that was like this and that had eyes and a mouth speaking arrogantly, and its appearance was greater than [that of] its companions.
    21 I looked and the horn that was like this waged war with the holy ones and overwhelmed them.
    22 Until the Ancient of Days came and gave revenge to the high holy ones, and the time arrived that the holy ones inherited the kingdom.
    23 So he said, "The fourth beast [represents] a fourth kingdom [that] will be on the earth, which will be different from all the kingdoms, and it will devour the whole land and trample it and crush it.
    24 And the ten horns that [sprout] from that kingdom [represent] ten kings [that] will rise, and the last one will rise after them, and he will be different from the first, and he will humble three kings.
    25 And he will speak words against the Most High, and he will oppress the high holy ones, and he will think to change the times and the law, and they will be delivered into his hand until a time, two times, and half a time.
    26 And the judgment shall be established, and they will remove his dominion to be destroyed and annihilated until the end.
    27 And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under all the heavens will be given to the people of the high holy ones; its kingdom is a perpetual kingdom, and all dominions will serve and obey [it]."
    28 Until here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts terrified me greatly, and my colors changed upon me, and I kept the matter in my heart.
    End time Prophecy Daniel chapter 7 Daniel - Chapter 7 1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream, and the visions of his mind [while asleep] on his bed; then he wrote the dream and said the beginnings of the matters. 2 Daniel raised his voice and said: I saw in my vision during the night, and behold the four winds of the heavens were stirring up the Great Sea. 3 And four huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one different from the other. 4 The first one was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle, until its wings were plucked and it was taken from the earth, and it stood on feet like a man, and the heart of a mortal was given it. 5 And behold another second beast, resembling a bear, and it stood to one side, and there were three ribs in its mouth between its teeth, and so did they say to it, 'Get up, eat much meat.' 6 After this, I saw, and behold another one, like a leopard, and it had four wings of a bird on its back, and the beast had four heads, and dominion was given it. 7 After this, I saw in the visions of the night, and behold a fourth beast, awesome and dreadful and exceedingly strong, and it had huge iron teeth. It ate and crushed, and trampled the rest with its feet, and it was different from all the beasts that were before me, and it had ten horns. 8 I looked at these horns and behold another small horn came up among them, and three of the first horns were plucked out before it, and behold eyes like human eyes were on this horn, and a mouth speaking arrogantly. 9 I was looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days sat; His raiment was as white as snow, and the hair of His head was like clean wool; His throne was sparks of fire, its wheels were a burning fire. 10 A river of fire was flowing and emerging from before Him; a thousand thousands served Him, and ten thousand ten thousands arose before Him. Justice was established, and the books were opened. 11 I saw then from the sound of the arrogant words that the horn spoke, I looked until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to a flame of fire. 12 But as for the other beasts, their dominion was removed, and they were given an extension of life until a set time. 13 I saw in the visions of the night, and behold with the clouds of the heaven, one like a man was coming, and he came up to the Ancient of Days and was brought before Him. 14 And He gave him dominion and glory and a kingdom, and all peoples, nations, and tongues shall serve him; his dominion is an eternal dominion, which will not be removed, and his kingdom is one which will not be destroyed. 15 My spirit-I, Daniel-became troubled within its sheath, and the visions of my mind terrified me. 16 I drew near to one of those standing [there], and I asked him the truth of all this, and he told it to me, and he let me know the interpretation of the matters. 17 [He said] "These huge beasts, which are four, are four kingdoms, which will arise from the earth. 18 And the high holy ones will receive the kingdom, and they will inherit the kingdom forever and to all eternity 19 Then I wished to determine the truth of the fourth beast, which was different from all of them- excessively dreadful; its teeth were of iron and its nails of copper; it ate and crushed to powder, and the rest it trampled with its feet. 20 And concerning the ten horns that were on its head, and the other one that came up and [the] three [that] fell before it, and the horn that was like this and that had eyes and a mouth speaking arrogantly, and its appearance was greater than [that of] its companions. 21 I looked and the horn that was like this waged war with the holy ones and overwhelmed them. 22 Until the Ancient of Days came and gave revenge to the high holy ones, and the time arrived that the holy ones inherited the kingdom. 23 So he said, "The fourth beast [represents] a fourth kingdom [that] will be on the earth, which will be different from all the kingdoms, and it will devour the whole land and trample it and crush it. 24 And the ten horns that [sprout] from that kingdom [represent] ten kings [that] will rise, and the last one will rise after them, and he will be different from the first, and he will humble three kings. 25 And he will speak words against the Most High, and he will oppress the high holy ones, and he will think to change the times and the law, and they will be delivered into his hand until a time, two times, and half a time. 26 And the judgment shall be established, and they will remove his dominion to be destroyed and annihilated until the end. 27 And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under all the heavens will be given to the people of the high holy ones; its kingdom is a perpetual kingdom, and all dominions will serve and obey [it]." 28 Until here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts terrified me greatly, and my colors changed upon me, and I kept the matter in my heart.

  • G-d said, for I am God and not a man
    G-d said, for I am God and not a man. Contrary to pagan thought, throughout the Bible we are taught not to confuse Gd and Man. For example, in Hosea 11:9, Gd explicitly tells us, '...for I am Gd and not a man.' All of the great Jewish figures of the Hebrew Bible -- the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Moses, King David and others -- are shown as fully human, not divine. הקב"ה אמר, כי אני...

  • Satan
    The Hebrew word "Satan" means "Hinderer." To hinder someone means to hold him back, to try to prevent him from doing something. G-d created the Hinderer to give us work to do in this world. Satan is here to make things difficult for us, so we can overcome our evil temptations, (Yetzer HaRa) and PASS the test. That is the purpose of Satan. Satan is an angel whose purpose has been determined by...
