What makes a prophet?

Course Description

Sure, we know Moshe Rabbenu was a prophet, we know Yeshayahu and Yirmiyahu were prophets, but what does that mean? We will start by analyzing the mitzvot related to prophecy - when we have to listen to them, when not - and move on to a discussion of the qualifications to be a prophet, the powers of a prophet, and the experiene of prophecy. Much of the course will focus on Rambam's discussions of the issue, but if time permits, we will also look into R. Kook's views as well.

What makes a prophet?

Tonight, we'll push on with some of the limitations and qualifications that are needed for prophecy-- can prophets use their own intellects to decide what God wants, even, perhaps to violate the Torah?  Can anyone be a prophet? How do we react when someone who seems unqualified claims to prophecy?

What makes a prophet?

This week we'll finish our discussion of whether and how prophets and sages are the same/ different, and begin our project of seeing and critiquing Rambam's view of how prophecy works, its limits, and its purposes.
