Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Moshe said (Korach, BaMidbar 16:30), “If HaShem creates a new creation,” meaning, If Gehinom already exists, that will serve; if not HaShem will create it.” That can’t be! Moshe could not have been unsure whether Gehinom already existed, for we learn, “Seven things were created before the earth: 1) Torah, 2) T’shuva, 3) Gan Ayden, 4) Gehinom, 5) the Kisay haKovod, 6) the Bat haMikdosh, 7) the name of the Moshiach.” Moshe meant, then, “If Gehinom already has an opening on the surface of the earth, that will serve; if not, HaShem will create one.” That, too can’t be! Scripture (Kohelles 1:9) tells us, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Rather, Moshe announced, “If an opening to Gehinom is already located here, that will serve; if not, HaShem will bring one to this spot.”
