The Gemara Shabbos 118a says, "Whoever has three meals on Shabbos... will saved on from the birth-pangs of Moshiach."

  1. Why specifically 3 meals?

  2. Is the Gemara saying that one who specifically eats the third meal will be saved from the "birth pains" of Moshiach or is this only one who eats all three meals?

    I don't understand 3. How can you eat a third meal without eating three meals? – Double AA Aug 13 '15 at 19:16
  • I also don't understand Q 3. The Gemarah says "three meals", not "the 3rd meal". Wait! Was this question edited b/c u originally had two items as #2? – DanF Aug 13 '15 at 20:28
