Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Now, it is evident from the catalog of miracles we have studied that as one goes deeper into the Beit haMikdosh the miracles become progressively more common. In the outside world nissim are rarities, only performed at the greatest, earth-shaking, necessity. In Jerusalem there were certain miracles that were common, though necessary to a certain extent. However, they were miracles in a statistical sense only. A stay in Jerusalem, or even a lifetime there, without getting bitten by a snake or a scorpion is not miraculous. Only the cumulative evidence that never did a bite occur makes us realize a nes has occurred. In the Azora there were constant miracles that weren’t terribly necessary. A pregnant woman could avoid the Azora. If the column of smoke did not rise in a straight line the korbonos would be still perfectly acceptable.
