The Men of the Great Assembly understood on a deeper level, that through the darkness of exile G-dliness is not hidden but revealed. Essence is the microcosm that encompasses an entire reality. In the seed is everything, that tree was, is and will be.To illustrate, one sees a beautiful, large, fruit tree in full bloom. We are in search of the one thing that incorporates all its immense beauty, its size and its fruit. Logically, one would conjecture that this seed which holds all the tremendous beauty within it, would in and of itself be exquisitely beautiful. The profound lesson is that the seed appears to be no more than a small meaningless pebble. Chasidus explains, true essence can never be revealed. It is only through the concealment of a seed that essence is engaged.Yosef was the embodiment of the divine characteristic of revelation. He wore the brilliant kasones pasim (multi-colored garment). Paroah gave Yosef the name Tzafnas Pa’nayach – literally, the hidden, revealed through the face. The germara relates that Moshe wore simple white garments as he served as Kohen Gadol (high priest) during the seven inaugural days of the Mishkan.This was unlike the usual regal vestments worn by the Kohen Gadol (Taanis 11b).Moshiach Ben Dovid is Moshe Rabbeinu “Moshe is the first redeemer and the last redeemer,” (Midrash, Zohar Bereishis 25b, 27a).In the end of days Hashem’s majesty will be revealed on two different levels through Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid.G-d does not conceal his “might” when the Jewish people are persecuted, He reveals it, by controlling His wrath and waiting until the right moment to execute vengeance.In addition, G-d displays His “awesomeness” through the exile of the Jewish people.
It is through the medium of physicality that Hashem is found and can be connected to in essence.
The germara (Yoma 69b) explains that the Men of the Great Assembly merited the title “Great” because they restored G-d’s glory to its original greatness.
