Flat Earth vs Round Earth


i was recently hearing a discussion i know it might sound funny but it was about the earth being flat or a circle i was just wondering if there is any proofs either way from the tnach or the gemoroh and would love to hear them




  1. The Talmud, Tractate Avoda Zarah 41a, states, “It [The Idol] holds a ball as if to say it rules over the entire world like a ball”. Tosfot explain that “The world is spherical, as it says in the Yerushalmi: Alexander the Macedonian ascended on high until he saw the earth like a ball and the sea like a platter. The ‘sea’ refers to the ocean that encompasses the entire earth”.
