comment Why aren't Job or Psalms 90 in the Pentateuch?
Just a comment, but I suppose the question could also be phrased inversely: Why, given that Job wasn't included in the Torah, did R' Yehoshua suppose that it was authored by Moses?

comment Discussing the Exodus in the Messianic Age
@DoubleAA - no reason, it just strikes me as curious that people yearning for their own liberation from the Romans/Zoroastrians would specifically envisage a continued discussion of the liberation from Egypt occurring at such a time.

comment Why do I care what time Bnei Melachim (sons of kings) rise in the morning?
I don't think so, no. But I do think it's interesting (and see Tosafot Yom-Tov on Berakhot 1:2 as to how the Ri understands it).

comment When is the next shmita year (as of 5772)?
It's correct that there is no year 0 in the Gregorian calendar, but that doesn't mean that 1 BCE to 1 CE is only one year - it means that 1 BCE is 1 CE.

comment Will the mesiah build the 3rd temple?
There's no point being sarcastic, @BabySeal - I don't think they need to be comprehensive theses either. There is, however, a huge difference between a "comprehensive thesis" and a single line, conveying what a single individual once said. This answer could be vastly improved without even coming close to being a "thesis".

comment Will the mesiah build the 3rd temple?
Actually, @BabySeal, this answer doesn't answer the question in the title either. The OP asked whether or not the messiah will build the 3rd temple, not whether or not Rashi thought that he would do so. Is Rashi's opinion the only one? Does nobody disagree with him about this? Was he mentioning something that everybody already believed? If so, why did he bother to say it? This answer gives one person's opinion on the topic only, and therefore isn't actually an answer.

Not sure why you say that Ezekiel lived during the 2nd temple period, since the latest date given in the text (Ezekiel 29:17) is the 27th year of Yehoiachin's exile, c.571 BCE. That's over half a century before the second temple was even built.

comment The difference between Chazal and Razal
@Yishai - For all I know, though, his "מקום אחר" is personal correspondence. Do you know of any printed texts that use Chazal to refer to acharonim?
