Parshas Bo: Yalkut Gershuni - The Blood Is Proof Of Another Bais HaMikdash

 A Priest once came to the Rashba and asked him, "How can the Jews say that there will be a 3rd Bais HaMikdash,? The pasuk clearly states in Chagai (2:9) - 'Gadol Yihyeh Kavod HaBayis HaZeh HaAcharon Min HaRishon; Greater will be the honor of the last Bais HaMikdash more than the first.' The pasuk is referring to the 2nd Bais HaMikdash and refers to it as Acharon - the last one. This is a proof," said the priest, "that there will not be a 3rd Temple."

The Rashba answered, "The word Acharon - the last one - can be a relative term. 'Last' does not necessarily mean that there is nothing following it; rather it could mean 'Last' in the sense that it is after the previous one."

We find this in the pasuk in Parshas Shmos. Hashem told Moshe to do 3 signs before Klal Yisrael in order that they should believe him that he was sent by Hashem.  1)  Change the stick to a snake. 2)  His hand became white like snow  3) He threw the water on the ground and it became blood.  The pasuk there says, "ViHayah Im Lo Yaaminu LiKol HaOs HaRishon, YaaMinu LiKol HaOs HaAcharon; If they don't believe the first sign (the snake), they will surely believe the last (Tzaraas) one." The pasuk when stating the word ‘Last' is referring to the sign of Moshe's hand becoming white like snow. This was actually the 2nd sign and still the Torah calls it the "Last". The Rashba said, "This proves that something can be called last, even if there will be something after it."

Sefer Yalkut Gershuni says that there is an allusion to this in the pasuk in Parshas Bo. The pasuk says, "ViHaya HaDam Lachem LiOs Al HaBatim."  The simple meaning is,  "And you shall take the blood of the Korbon Pesach and place it on the doorposts and lintels of your houses. And the blood will be for you as a sign on your homes and Hashem will skip over theses homes by Makas Bechoros." Yalkut Gershuni explains, "ViHaya HaDam" - The blood which was the last Ois even though the snow white hand was called Acharon before it, "Lachem LiOs Al HaBatim" - will be a sign for the Bais HaMikdash, although in Chagai the 2nd Bais HaMikdash was called Acharon, there still will be a third following it.
