Parashat Behar - Points Of Divine Connection

5/20/2019
More
Why does Parashat Behar begin by telling us that, "The LORD spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai"? Don't we know that already by now? What purpose does this serve when introducing the laws of the Sabbatical year and the Jubilee? Is it important? Very much so. How? Read more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Behar (Leviticus 25:1-26:2).

Parashat Emor - Distinct & Set Apart

5/12/2019
More
The Torah specifies that the priests had various restrictions and parameters that were even greater than the Children of Israel in general. What lessons can we learn from this in our own lives? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Emor (Leviticus 21:1-24:23).

Parashat Kedoshim - Limiting What Is Permitted

5/7/2019
More
If something is permissible, why would we ever want to limit it? If we have permission, why not take full advantage of it? Oddly enough, holiness can only be defined through restrictions. Does that mean we have to be self-afflicting and not be able to appreciate what Hashem has given us in this world? Or is there a balance between indulgence and asceticism? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Kedoshim (Leviticus 19:1-20:27).

Parashat Acharei Mot - Gateway To Heaven

4/29/2019
More
When we think about Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, we think of the yearly atonement of the Children of Israel. However, the Torah says that the blood of the goat of the Yom Kippur service served to cleanse the Tabernacle and its furnishings from the "uncleannesses of the people of Israel." If we understand the altar as a gateway to Heaven, then this begins to make sense. Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Acharei Mot.

Tonight: Suffering. Tomorrow: Victory.

4/19/2019
More
This is a special Passover episode of the 5 Minute Torah. Passover is approaching. Let us give you a few brief thoughts on our deliverance from both the slavery of Egypt through the hand of Moses and the slavery of sin through Messiah Yeshua. There is a stark difference between what we experience tonight and what we will experience tomorrow. Tonight: Suffering. Tomorrow: Victory.

Passover Edition - Mashiach, Our Pesach

4/15/2019
More
Often Yeshua is described as the Passover lamb. Where does the concept originate and how does he correspond to the Passover lamb? And once we know this how should it affect us? Learn more in the Passover Edition of the 5 Minute Torah podcast: Mashiach, Our Pesach.

Parashat Metzora - Approaching The Wholly Holy

4/8/2019
More
Parashat Metzora is completely foreign reading to most people. Who cares about the various colors of a skin malady or the antiquated taboos revolving around bodily functions? Why should anyone trudge through these topics and study them with any detail? What could we possibly learn from such nauseating information? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Metzora (Leviticus 14:1-15:33).

Duration:00:05:54

Parashat Tazria - Spiritual Biohazard

3/30/2019
More
This week’s Torah portion discusses two topics largely skipped over by Bibles students today: the laws of purification after childbirth and biblical leprosy. Is biblical leprosy a pathological disease or a spiritual biohazard? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Tazria(Leviticus 12:1-13:59).

Duration:00:05:31

Parashat Shemini - The Heart of the Torah

3/23/2019
More
The argument between Moses and Aaron is the first halachic (legal) debate we have recorded in Scripture. Who was right and who was wrong? Why is this portion at the very center of the Torah? Sometimes while struggling to get Torah into our hearts, we miss the heart of the Torah. Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Shemini (Leviticus 9:1-11:47).

Duration:00:04:31

Parashat Tzav - Keep The Fire Burning

3/16/2019
More
In Parashat Tzav we learn that the holy altar had three fires that burned upon it continually. What does it mean that the fire shall be kept burning on the altar continually? If this is a continual, eternal commandment, how do we do this in a time when the Temple is not standing? Find out more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parshat Tzav (Leviticus 6:1[8]-8:36)

Parashat Vayikra — Drawing Near: On Whose Terms?

3/10/2019
More
Why would anyone enjoy reading the book of Leviticus? Isn't it all about blood and gore? Why do Jewish children begin their education with the book of Leviticus? Did God really ever desire sacrifices or were they just something He put up with? Learn more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Vayikra (Leviticus 1:1-5:26).

Duration:00:04:50

Parashat Pekudei - The Blessing of Obedience

3/2/2019
More
In the concluding portion of Exodus, the Children of Israel finish the construction of the Tabernacle and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle. What lesson can we learn from this about our relationship to God, especially in light of Paul's teachings? Find out more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Pekudei (Exodus 38:21-40:38).

Duration:00:06:02

Parashat Vayakhel - Kindling A Fire

2/25/2019
More
When Moses related God's instructions to the Children of Israel after coming down from Mount Sinai, it seems he added a commandment that was not given to him on top of the mountain: "You shall kindle no fire in all your dwelling places on the Sabbath day." Was this really from God? Find out more in our 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Vayakhel-Pekudei (Exodus 35:1 - 40:38).

Parashat Ki Tisa - Your Rules Or Mine?

2/18/2019
More
Whose definition of how to apply the Scriptures is authoritative? Sometimes it’s very tempting to define what the Torah means on our own terms. But do we have permission to interpret Torah on an individual level? Listen to this episode of the 5 Minute Torah podcast on Parashat Ki Tisa (Exodus 30:11-34:35) to find out more.

Duration:00:05:09

Parashat Tetzaveh - The Beauty of Boundaries

2/10/2019
More
The LORD commands Aaron and his sons not to give holy food to outsiders. Yeshua alludes to this passage by forbidding his disciples to give what is holy to dogs or throw it to the pigs. What does this mean and how can we apply it? Read more in the 5 Minute Torah commentary on Parashat Tetzaveh (Exodus 27:20-30:10).

Duration:00:05:19

Parashat Terumah - The Bridge

2/2/2019
More
What was the purpose of the Tabernacle? Did God give the Children of Israel the Tabernacle to keep the people away from him, or bring them closer? What does the author of Hebrews mean when he says the Tabernacle was a “copy and shadow of the heavenly things”? And lastly, why did the Tabernacle have to have such strict boundaries? Was that just an Old Testament thing? Or is there something larger we need to understand? Join us to discover the answers to these questions and more in the 5...

Parashat Mishpatim - Acting On Behalf Of God

1/26/2019
More
Should we understand and apply the Bible in a literal sense 100% of the time? Moses was told to bring cases of certain legal disputes "before God" to determine who is right and who is wrong. Although this is the hyper-literal translation of the text, is this what the LORD intended? Or should the litigants be brought "before the judges," as the NIV and other translations claim? Does understanding this principle of interpretation shed light on Yeshua's argument in John 10? Learn more in this 5...

Parashat Yitro - Believe In Moses?

1/25/2019
More
In this week's Torah portion God tells Moses He will appear to him in a thick cloud so that the people would "believe in you forever." Believe in Moses forever? But aren't we supposed to believe in Yeshua forever? If it sounds confusing maybe we need to reorient our way of thinking. Read more in the 5 Minute Torah on Parashat Yitro (Exodus 18:1-20:23). https://www.emethatorah.com/blog/2017/february-17/parashat-yitro-exodus-181-2023
