Rabbi Elan Adler explains how a very simple statement “Moses received the Torah from Sinai” contains in it a hidden lesson of the right attitude of learning.


Bob’s Application:  We can see Rabbi Adler’s exhortation story of Sinai paralleling very nicely the New Testament story of how disciples of Jesus argued which each other as to who was the greatest. The answer for each case is the same. Jesus answered in Luke 9:48 “for the one who is least among all of you, this is the one who is great” and again in Luke 22:26 “but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.” Our application from this lesson is to take the words of Rabbi Adler and to simply “go and do likewise”.
