Rambam's Treatment of Prophecy in the Introduction to the Commentary on the Mishnah


This afternoon (4/22/21 at YBT) in our Rambam Bekius chavurah we continued learning the Rambam’s discourse on nevuah in the Introduction to the Commentary in the Mishnah. WARNING: since we were only learning this for the Rambam’s new points, I sped-read and didn’t translate anything that the Rambam already covered in the Mishneh Torah. Also, we wanted to finish this topic today so that we can start Hilchos Deios next week, AND because this was our 100th session of our Rambam Bekius chavurah, and we wanted to conclude Hilchos Yesodei ha’Torah in its entirety on an even number! 馃槈

Bekius Disclaimer:
Note that this is a bekius chavurah – as opposed to an iyun shiur. Each session consists of us reading through the Rambam’s writings together without much preparation on my part, and without going into depth by consulting commentaries or primary sources. For all these reasons, there are bound to be inaccuracies, errors, and other types of shortcomings which would not be acceptable in a prepared shiur, but are quite typical of a bekius chavurah. Please bear this in mind, and know what you’re signing up for when you listen!
