Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
The Significance of the Number “Three”
It seems superfluous for the Mishnah to count how many things were said; after all, we can easily count them ourselves. The Mishnah states “There are three things” to teach that the remedy consists of precisely three parts. No less would be adequate and no more required.
The number three is characteristic of a complete entity. An entity consists of three parts: two opposite extremes and an intermediate part that joins with those extremes to form a unified whole.
Consider a house. Inside is a haven of refuge and tranquility; outside lays the danger and the harsh elements; and the structure joins these extremes. We can fortify a house in all three dimensions. We can protect it from outside forces with a windbreaker and good water drainage. We can protect the inside by eliminating fire hazards, and we can brace the structure the house itself. All of those areas must be fortified, and there is no other area available for improvement.
