Vayeitzei 2018-19

After a brief overview of the main topics in Vayeitzei, we explore the curious Aramaic word “memra” which occurs in the ancient Aramaic translation of this parshah and which John makes reference to in his gospel. Moving on, we reflect on Jacob’s interactions with the character named “Red” and a new character named “White.” Lastly, […]

Genesis 47

We begin this Torah Project teaching by focusing on an important pattern seen clearly in both Joseph’s story and in the story of Moses, a pattern that reveals a key to God’s intimate revelation of Himself to us. We then explore the curious turn of events in which Joseph acquires Egypt’s wealth, livestock, land, and […]

Genesis 43b-44

This Torah Project teaching begins by looking back to an interesting message contained within Genesis 43 verse 30. We find there the biblical Hebrew word that comes closest to our English word “emotion,” “nic’meru,” from the root “comer.” This amazing root yields a collection of meanings that, together, form a deeply instructive picture of the […]

Judah and Joseph

In this Torah Project teaching, we closely compare and contrast the two brothers Judah and Joseph, finding in them pictures of the “outer” and the “inner” person, the seen and the unseen. As we explore in this way, we gain understandings into the human condition since we are each composed of physical and spiritual elements. […]

Genesis 41b

We continue Joseph’s incredible story in this Torah Project teaching, furthering our list of Messianic parallels seen in Joseph’s life story. We begin with a verse that establishes a turning point in Joseph’s life that points to Messiah’s return after 2 thousand years of physical absence.

Genesis 41a and Hanukkah

The heart of this Torah project teaching is the question “Can we survive as believers in such a fallen world where society is ever more quickly sliding into darkness?” In pursuit of an answer, we look in detail at the family God gives Joseph in Egypt: his wife Asenath, her father the Egyptian priest of […]

Genesis 39

Continuing the Torah Project teaching series, we dig into the story of Joseph and Potiphar’s wife, the first of 3 stories in which Joseph is given authority over a domain. Reading Joseph as Messiah and reading Potiphar (and his wife) as the believer, we ask the question, “How can the believer tempt the Messiah to […]

Genesis 37c

In this Torah Project teaching, we finish our study of Genesis 37 with a review of the key concept of “2 Messiahs” (Mashiach ben Yoseph and Mashiach ben David), and we extend our list of Messianic parallels between the stories of Joseph and Yeshua, adding 17 corollaries in just these 19 verses in chapter 37.

Genesis 37b

Continuing the Torah Project teachings in Genesis 37, we begin by looking in depth at the amazing figure of Joseph, one of the clearest pictures of Messiah in all of Scripture. We start by examining the Hebrew word describing Joseph’s colorful coat, “passim,” finding in it both a reference to the Messiah and an allusion […]

Genesis 37a

In this Torah Project teaching, we begin by addressing the question of the validity of extra-biblical sources, especially Jewish sources. We look at several mentions in the Bible of extra-biblical works, explore the Greek word for “oracles” in Romans 3, then look at a particularly helpful extra-biblical source on Genesis 37:2 that draws many comparisons […]
