Does Judaism Believe In The Ragnarök (aka The Apocalypse)?

End of Days, Armageddon, Doomsday, Cataclysm, Apocalypse, Ragnarök. The end of the world as we know it has many names and interpretations across many cultures and religions. Fire raining from the sky, terrible monsters crawling out of a pit in the earth, seas boiling, a death toll somewhere in the billions, if not the decimation of all of humanity. Sounds pretty scary, right? I mean, it’s not called “the end of the world” for nothing. Does Judaism have its own version of the Ragnarök? The simple answer is yes and it’s actually called aḥarit ha-yamim, or the end of days, several times in Tanach.  When it comes to the Jewish faith, the most widespread idea of “the end of the world” is that of the Messiah, a descendant of King David who will help lead the Jews out of exile, return them to Jerusalem and rebuild the Beit Hamikdash (Jewish temple). In addition, there is the idea that deceased individuals will come back to life in what is known as Techiyat HaMetim—what form or age they will inhabit is up for endless debate. However, before this golden Messianic age arrives, there is to be a great war between good and evil (Gog and Magog are the peoples who will wage war against the Jews), which involves a giant sea monster, a massive ox and ends in the eradication of wickedness for all eternity. According to the Talmud, the time preceding this conflict will be marked by great social and economic upheaval as well as great suffering. (READ MORE)
