Baltimore, MD - July 15, 2019 - Bilaam's prophecy is compared to Moshe Rabbeinu's. In this shiur we analyze the difference between Moshe Rabbeinu, the prophet of the Jewish people, and Bilaam, the prophet of the nations. A prophet is a representation of the people. A Jewish prophet is compassionate, and tries to prevent people from sin, as opposed to the prophet of the nations, who brings people to sin and is destructive. Moshe is a representation of the Jewish people, whose mission statement is the desire to go back to the days of Gan Eden. On the contrary, Bilaam is self-focused, and lives in a world of taking; he represents a people who live a life expelled from Gan Eden.
