Nitzavim-Vayeilech 2021

In the spirit of the 10 Days of Awe, we draw from this double Torah portion several important topics that we need to consider for repentance. We begin with the topic of relationship balance. In one of our main topics, we look at the words translated “gall and wormwood,” connecting these ideas to the defeated […]

1 Corinthians Ch. 6: The Ignorant Life

In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul’s exasperation comes through as 12 questions in 20 verses. Topics in this teaching include the holy people as judges of both the world and angels, what it means to be in God’s kingdom, strength against temptation through mindfulness of identity, and the often misunderstood verse 12 about “all things” being […]

Nehemiah Chs. 4-5: Building = Battle

As we begin chapters 4 and 5 of Nehemiah, we note an important difference in enemy tactics when we are rebuilding walls vs. rebuilding the Temple (Ezra). In dissecting the enemy’s verbal attacks, we observe “how to get stupid in 3 easy steps.” Seeing the wall being built, we talk about ladders and moving to […]

Vayikra 2018-19

Parshah Vayikra, the first portion in the heart of the Torah, gives us invaluable pictures of how we draw near to God. The main aim of this teaching is to lay a foundation for looking at the sacrifices as examples for how we can be living sacrifices, and, thereby, draw near to God. We start […]

Genesis 50

Join us for this final Torah Project teaching in Genesis. We begin this lesson by noting the Jewish discomfort with Joseph’s decision to embalm his father’s body, drawing from the discussion an important principle about how we are to relate to God’s creation. We then focus on the little word “perhaps” in verse 15 that, […]

Join us for another Torah Project teaching, this time centered on food. This first look at Genesis 42 begins with a connection to the Apostolic Scriptures that deepens our understanding of true “food,” spiritual food, with a further insight into the true famine of our times. We then look at the wonderful Hebrew word for […]

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 […]

Genesis 35b-36

In this Torah Project teaching, we begin by digging into what appears to be a gratuitously inserted verse in the middle of Jacob’s narrative, a verse describing the death of Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse. The journey brings us to insights about the Word through topics as diverse as the “arks” of Moses and Noah, the only […]

Genesis 32b-33a

Continuing the Torah Project in Genesis, we focus on Jacob’s seemingly mysterious wrestling match at the stream called “Jabbok,” allowing the Torah to cast light on the fear and stress we all struggle against. With a special focus on 2 Corinthians 1-3, Mark 14, and Watchman Nee’s short book The Release of the Spirit, we look at what it […]
