Asse, Rabbi

Asse, Rabbi the colleague of rabbi Ame (q.v.), was a teacher of the 4th century. The coming of the Messiah he placed at the end of the world. "The Son of David will not come until all souls have left their bodies" (Yebamoth, p. 62). His method of instruction was especially praised, because he always adhered to his subject and laid down the general principle: "When I lecture on one treatise, do not ask me concerning another" (Jerus. Sabbath, 19:1). One of his maxims was, "He that exalts himself shall be lowered" (Sota, fol. 5). See Hamburger, Real-Encyklop. ii, 76 sq. (B. P.)
