Pinchas – The Zealot 5772 - Covenant & Conversation - Thoughts from the Chief Rabbi

Last Updated on Friday, 13 July 2012 08:58 Written by Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks Friday, 13 July 2012 08:07

With Pinchas a new type enters the world of Israel: the zealot. “Pinchas son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has turned My anger away from the Israelites by being zealous with My zeal in their midst so that I did not put an end to them in My zeal” (Num. 25: 11). He was followed, many centuries later, by the one other figure in Tanakh described as a zealot, the prophet Elijah. He tells God on Mount Horeb, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God Almighty.” (1 Kings 19: 14). In fact, tradition identified the two men: “Pinchas is Elijah” (Yalkut Shimoni, Torah, 771). Pinchas, says Targum Yonatan (to Num. 25: 12), “became an angel who lives forever and will be the harbinger of redemption at the End of Days.”
