Prophets in Judaism


Just like in Islam, prophets play an important religious role in Judaism too Prophets display unique personal qualities allowing them to communicate with God Israelite prophets carried out different functions: some served as political leaders in missions prescribed by God, like Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt or Devorah who led them in battle against the Canaanite army of Sisra Others, like the prophet Elijah, were tasked with rebuking the people for sins they’d committed Some prophets predicted the future like Isaiah and Jeremiah, who foresaw the destruction of Jerusalem The Jewish Bible contains many inspiring characters but not all of them are considered prophets Adam, the first human, isn’t a prophet in Jewish tradition nor is Lot, Abraham’s nephew Moses stands out as the greatest Israelite prophet for his direct and intimate relationship with God while other prophets only received divine messages in their sleep According to our tradition prophecy ended with the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem But Judaism acknowledges prophets from other religions like Bilam ben Beor and Hebrew prophets sent to other nations, like Jonah It’s never fun being told by a prophet that you’re a sinner so some Israelite prophets, like Jeremiah were verbally and physically attacked by their audience Our Bible even tells of the killing of a prophet Zecharia ben Yehoyada, stoned to death at the command of Yoash king of Judah But centuries later, Christianity and Islam generalized these specific incidents They described Jews as inherently hostile and even murderous toward their messengers foremost among them, Jesus of Nazareth scores of Jews were led to their deaths throughout history based on these accusations In Jewish tradition, prophets can sometimes make mistakes and even sin Their greatness, in our view, stems from their ability to admit their faults publicly and repent serving as role models for us all A significant part of the Bible is dedicated to prophecies which we read in synagogue every Sabbath One of Isaiah’s most moving prophecies deals with the future peace “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation neither shall they learn war anymore.”

  3. سؤال لك يا اخى اليهودى
    لماذا لا تؤمنون بالنبي محمد عليه الصلاه و السلام و لماذا تكرهون المسلمين؟ و شكرا لاخلاقك العاليه انت رجل طيب تريد توضيح ديانتكم لنا كمسلمين و لكن اعلم يا اخى ان الاسلام اخر دين سماوى و انه كما قال محمد عليه افضل الصلاه و السلام (سيبلغ الاسلام ما بلغ عرض السماوات و الارض) يعنى لن يقف انتشار الدين الاسلامى و لن يتوقف فلا تحاول نشر الديانه اليهوديه فقد اصبحت قديمه يا اخى و تنقص تعاليم و معلومات و الجميع يبحث عن الكامل الحديث اسأل الله لك الهدايه الى صراط مستقيم❤❤❤❤

  5. يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِّمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ (57) يونس . . وكورونا مرض يصيب الصدور .

  6. دايماً يصير لغط بين الأنبياء و الرسل وما الفرق بينهم
    قد قرأت أن الفرق بين النبي و الرسول
    الرسول يكون معه كتاب و شريعة مثل موسى عليه السلام.
    و النبي يكون يتبع شريعة من قبله مثل أنبياء بني اسرائيل.
