In this series, we explore Maimonides’ elusive comments in his Mishnah Commentary regarding the Mishnah’s assurance that “Every member of the people Israel has a share in the world to come.” Among the questions Maimonides raises: What is the true nature of Divine reward and punishment, and why do biblical and rabbinic sources on the subject appear to be inconsistent? Passages from the Commentary will be studied in English, with references to the standard Hebrew translation and original Arabic.
