Continuing in the book of the Prophet Ezekiel, chapter 18, Rabbi Steve Berkson leads us to understand that Israel was using an idiom at that time, “The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are blunted”. This idiom meant that children could receive condemnation because of the evil their parents had done. But YHVH corrected them by saying, “you shall no longer use this proverb in Yisra’?l. See, all beings are Mine, the being of the father as well as the being of the son is Mine. The being that is sinning shall die.” So what we learn is that no one can blame another for their own evil choices. We all will stand before the Almighty Judge on our own for what we have done in this life.

We will learn the meaning of the Hebrew word, nephesh.

We will see a to-do list for life and how YHVH gives us a preview of how He will judge all mankind.

Then, Rabbi Berkson ties Ezekiel 18 to Yeshua’s words in Matthew 25 in which Yeshua speaks of Himself as the King that will come and will gather all the nations before Him and separate them one from another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats.
