Video: The Meaning of Rachel’s Tears in Matthew 2

Today’s question: What does the conception of Issachar have to do with Matthew 2:16-18?

Within it, I summarize Rabbi David Fohrman’s reading of Jeremiah 31:15-17. You can see his videos on that passage here.

If you have any questions for me, please leave them on my Curious Cat account here.
