Messiah Ben Joseph and Messiah Ben David

Laitman_043Question: Why must Messiah ben Joseph be killed?

Answer: Rav Kook wrote: Messiah ben Joseph reveals the importance of Israel alone, but the goal of Israel is to unite the whole world into one family and call the Lord. Therefore, “Messiah ben Joseph is destined to be killed and Messiah ben David will rule.”

This means that we are still in a period of Messiah ben Joseph, and the need to raise the value of IsraelYashar- El (straight to the Creator) over all, and because of this, the time will come when we will unite the entire world, will work to Messiah ben David.
