This was so great. I enjoyed listening to it while Pesach cleaning!
The problem I have is with the opening statements of mutual exclusivity. We are given the choice of only one of two ways to interpret Scripture, generally speaking, not even the Talmud does that. If a man can form sentences which contain dual meanings how much more God, when His audience stretches out thousands of years into the future.
Excellent as always. I like that you pointed out the absence of any mention of “Kapara” in Isaiah 53. BTW, as you know, you won’t find “selicha” or “mechila” there either – none of the big three. Odd, it would seem, for the Bible’s most foundational and enduring chapter on atonement.
Chag Kasher V’sameach.
