The Gladiators

The rabbis of the Talmud, who lived in Roman times, told that in a time yet to come, G‑d will entertain us with a gladiator tournament.

We will watch and we will cheer on the victor. We will gasp as he falls and rejoice as he picks himself up again to continue the battle.

And we will realize that this victor is each one of us, as we were fighting against the darkness in which we were cast as we lived within this world.

Then we will laugh an unbridled laugh. Then we will know the unbounded delight of our Creator as He watched our victory, here in this world now.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman. To order Rabbi Freeman’s book, Bringing Heaven Down to Earth, click here.
