New Age of Prophets
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2013 -- The new age of the prophet may be alive in Israel, as those who study their tablets can do so electronically, and one may hold a smartphone instead of a staff. While they may not look the part of the old-world prophet, today's saying of truths may simply dawn a different look while holding the same importance.
For 200 shekels ($53), and 40 short classes, the Cain and Able school for Prophets says it can make anyone a modern-day soothsayer.
The school was launched last month and baffled critics. Many dismissed the school as a fraud.
On the religious level, the Jewish tradition recognizes a dozen prophets from the biblical era. The traditions of the system claims that no one can be a prophet since the Romans destroyed the second temple of Jerusalem in the year 70. Thus the era of prophecy can only be revived with the revival of the Messiah, along with the temples rebuilding.
“There is no way to teach prophecy,” said Rachel Elior, a professor of Jewish thought at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University. “It’s like opening a school for becoming Einstein or Mozart.”
Such claims have not deterred the sole teacher (and founder) of the school, Shmuel Hapartzy, who is a follower of Chabad, a global Orthodox Jewish outreach movement.
Anyone looking in the curriculum for “Parting the Sea 101” or “How to Predict the Future” or even “Principles of Proclaiming A Jeremiad” will be disappointed. I
While Hapartzy does not guarantee his course will imbue one with the ear of God directly, he states that the syllabus gives the tools to bring forth the profit in anyone looking for such blessing.
“In the past, there were prophets but even now, in our time, divinity is being revealed to everyone. We just need to open our eyes to it,” said Hapartzy at his introductory course, which is held at a religious center in grungy south Tel Aviv, known more for its licentious street parties than piety.
