Pesachim 68: Whence Resurrection of the Dead?

A departure from the regularly scheduled topics. First, some intricacy in explicating biblical verses, specifically to make a comment on the righteous and the resurrection of the dead – with a real dive into the esoteric, philosophical material. Also, revisiting Shmuel’s comment on what will change (and what won’t) in the time of the messiah, and God’s role in life and death – and resurrection. Plus: On the essence of the day if yom tov, and heat we should do with the day. Also, the sages’ appreciation for their own ability to learn Torah, and how Torah sustains the world.
