    Faithful Witnesses: Caleb and Joshua

    Faithful Witnesses: Caleb and Joshua

    There are times when our personal history distorts how we see and experience the promises of God. In those times we need the Caleb's and the Joshua's to speak His promises to us, to refute the distorted view, and see the fruit of God's faithfulness in our lives. Thank God for those Caleb's and Joshua's in our lives. 

    References: Numbers 13.

    Tetzaveh: Torah 20

    Tetzaveh: Torah 20

    Is there a theology regarding garments in the Bible? What would a garment theology reveal? The garments of the Levitical high priest are described to be for "glory and beauty." Why? Is there anything that we in Messianic faith can learn from this? Is there a theology regarding garments for those in Christ? Give a listen. 

    References: Exodus 28:2; Ephesians 4:17-32; John 20:21-23.

    Terumah: Torah 19

    Terumah: Torah 19

    There is a strange shift in the Torah narrative, from the legal matter of Mishpatim (Judgments), to the constructive narrative of the Tabernacle. What is the Lord showing us? Can we understand the nature of "contribution," or terumah, differently when we understand the nature of giving itself? We find a teaching on transformation, not destruction, and a transformation from being selfish to being more selfless. Give a listen. 

    References: Exodus 25:1-2, 8; Exodus 32:2-3; Galatians 6:6-10.

    Mishpatim: Torah 18

    Mishpatim: Torah 18

    In this week's Torah portion, the Lord seems to be making a radical departure from a more personal narrative, to one that seems to focus on the legal matters of a nation. Is there a reason for this besides the obvious? Can the Lord be teaching us something important for the life of faith in Messiah Yeshua/Jesus? Yes, and amen. The Lord begins to transform memory. Give a listen. 

    References: Exodus 21:1; 23:9; Leviticus 19:18, 33-34; Deuteronomy 10:17-20; Luke 10:25-37.

    Yitro: Torah 17

    Yitro: Torah 17

    As the children of Israel make their way physically and spiritually to Mt. Sinai, how does the Lord ensure that, following the war with Amalek, that His people will not become a covered or withdrawn light? Enter Jethro, the father in law to Moses. What important lesson to we learn from Jethro that continues to teach us today? How are a nation of leaders led? How are a nation of priests served? How does the wisdom of Jethro help us to understand the gift offices of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher, and the ecclesiastical offices of Bishop and Deacon? How do these leaders lead leaders, and how do they help us to mature in Messiah for world-changing faith? Give a listen. 

    References: Exodus 18:1; 17:8-16; 18:13-14; Exodus 20:1-4; Ephesians 4:11-16.

    Beshalach: Torah 16

    Beshalach: Torah 16

    How does the Lord heal a nation of freed slaves? In the wonders shown to Israel during the exodus, was there, perhaps,  a secondary purpose to them, beyond the obvious? The fulfilled promise, the parted waters, the bitter waters, the manna from heaven, and  the water from the rock, how do these miracles help in the recovery of a generation of God's people who suffered under Pharaoh? In the Lord's grace and mercy, He gave bread before mandates. Why? Give a listen. 

    References: Exodus 13:17-18, 19; 14:2; 15-17; John 6:25-28, 41-51.
