Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Rabbi Elazar HaKappar says: the living will be judged.
The closer on is to HaShem, the closer one is to receiving judgment. As an example, Rosh Hashanah is the time of judgment because HaShem comes close to the world on those days. However, the dead, for their part, are not close to HaShem, and hence only the living will be judged. The living refers to both those who are alive now and those who will be living after the dead return to life.
