Who is Getting a Portion in the World to Come?

Updated: Aug 3, 2022


Any Gentile who accepts these Seven Noahide Commandments,

and is careful to observe them, is truly a pious individual of the nations of the world, and merits an eternal portion in the future World to Come.

And with this merit, the person will be included in the Resurrection of the Dead.


This applies only if he accepts them and does them because the Holy One, blessed be He, commanded them in the Torah, and made it known through Moses our teacher, that the Children of Noah were previously commanded to fulfill them.


However, if one fulfills the commandments of the Noahide Code

only out of intellectual conviction (because his logic dictates them), he

is forbidden by Torah Law to settle in the land of Israel, and he is

not counted among the pious individuals of the nations of the world.



 

Any Gentile who accepts the seven commandments and is careful to

observe them is of the “pious of the nations of the world” and will

have a portion in the World to Come.


This is so provided that one accepts them and observes them because the Holy One, blessed be He,commanded them in the Torah and informed us through Moses ourteacher that the descendants of Noah were originally commanded

about them.


But if one observes them only by virtue of common sense,he is not a Ger Toshav (Gentile “Resident,” the Written Torah’s term

for one who takes on the Noahide Code), or one of the “pious of the

nations of the world,” but rather, one of their wise people.

Rambam (Maimonides), Laws of Kings 8:11. This ruling is based on the

very early Rabbinic text Mishnat Rabbi Eliezer, section VI (ed. New York

1933, p. 121), as noted by Rambam himself in one of his responsa (Teshuvot

Ha’Rambam, ed. Blau, vol. I, no. 148): “The pious of the nations of the

world are deemed pious if they observe the seven commandments enjoined

upon the descendants of Noaĥ, in all their details.”

Rambam, Laws of Kings 8:11. However, if he fulfills the Noahide Code in

practice, he is not liable to any punishment for this lack of belief.

According to Rambam’s Laws of the Worship of Stars [and Idols] 10:6,

during the temporary diaspora of the Jewish people, no one can be accepted

into the legal status of a Gentile “Resident” (Ger Toshav

in Hebrew). This

means that we cannot confer upon a Gentile the legal status of a Ger Toshav,

even if he makes a declaration before three Torah-observant adult Jewish

males that he accepts and abides by the Noahide Code. Nevertheless, for any

Gentiles who are not accepting and observing of the Noahide Code, the Jews

are commanded to expel them from the Holy Land of Israel, and they are

forbidden by Torah Law to dwell there (whether they are expelled or not).

See Rashi and Tosafot on Tractate Rosh Hashanah 16b-17a. They state

that the Talmud’s words beginning, “There are three groups for the Day of

Judgment,” refer to the Resurrection of the Dead. The Talmud is speaking in

reference to Gentiles and Jews, so it is apparent that Gentiles can have not

only a part in the future World to Come, but also in the Resurrection of the

Dead. Ra’avad, Ramban, and teachings of Ĥassidic leaders, are of the

opinion that the main, eternal reward and revelation of Godliness in the

future will be in the physical world, after the Resurrection of the Dead.
