In this fascinating interview, Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss tackles timeless questions that have ignited debates for centuries: "Can God create a rock He can't lift?" "Can God do anything and everything?" and "Can God do the impossible?" Approaching the question first from the standpoint of logic, and then through the interpretations of prominent medieval commentators (Rambam, Meiri, Saadia Gaon, R' Yosef Albo, and Ramban), Rabbi Schneeweiss explores the implications of these queries for our belief in Hashem. He skillfully navigates the delicate balance between acknowledging God's unlimited power and recognizing the constraints of human logic. The discussion illuminates the complexities of divine power and its implications for our beliefs, showcasing the depth and richness of the theological discourse of our sages of blessed memory.--- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/judaismdemystified/support
