The End of Exile

In his prophetic dream described in the Book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar foresaw the four kingdoms that would rule the Jewish people: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome — each with its own distinct character, each posing its own unique threat to Jewish survival.

The final exile, that of Edom (Rome) manifests in our time as the superficiality of Western Civilization, distorting universal values based in Torah until they become gross caricatures whereby all attempts at moral reasoning yield perversely immoral conclusions.

Case in point: the latest from Paul Greenberg.
