Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Mishnah 25b and 26
Ben Bag Bag wishes to convey the importance of the Torah. “Everything is in it” means that the Torah describes the entire universe, but why would that be so?
Mankind is the point of Creation and hence all Creation is subsidiary to mankind. Furthermore, Torah is the conceptual scriptures that G-d established for human conduct. Since Creation exists to support human existence, the structure of Creation must follow from Torah’s structure for mankind. Hence, Torah is the original premise of Creation, as the Rabbis said, The Holy One, Blessed is He, looked in the Torah to create the world.
If one could fully comprehend Torah, he would have grasped the structure of all existence.
