Haf. Lech Lecha (Isaiah 40:27-41:16)

Join Beth Tikkun as we continue our study of the Haftarah portions for the 2013-14 Torah cycle. In this teaching we consider some of the amazing details of this encouraging passage from Isaiah. We compare the passages that refer to things that are “unsearchable” and analyze how idolatry is alive and thriving in the modern world.

    Hi Grant and my fellow Beth Tikkunians!

    This was a fabulous portion and you were absolutely right Grant that it fits to encourage those of us lacking in faith sometimes as we wonder where God has gone…as if he ever leaves!

    In the present age we live in many, I’m sure, need more encouragement!

    Concerning verses 6-7 of Isaiah 41;

    While you were discussing their impact and meaning I just couldn’t stop thinking about the Pharisee’s of Yeshua’s generation. It is almost as if the verses were a prophecy of their time (and ours) and their (our) chosen way of handling Yeshua and His teaching! Our often felt fear of seeing others misuse or misappropriate the Word of God (as our opinion goes) can lead us to our own undoing!

    Before we allow ourselves a sense of haughtiness that says; “I would not have treated Yeshua the way our forefathers did…” I feel we should remember that many of us in our own generation have wasted our own time “…nailing down the idol (our own theology) so it will not topple…!”

    Such a powerful teaching thank you!

    Thanks, Phil, for the kind words and the insights. We certainly are prone to criticize people in the Bible when we do the same things ourselves. Maybe they will be on the panel of judges that review our case? Hhmmm….
