A show examining the Three versions, 2 Hebrew and 1 Greek translations of the five books of Moses. Hidden within the pages of these books we will discover a secret fourth Torah that is transformational towards one's spiritual walk with the God of Israel. Prepare to examine humanities creation, purpose and destiny in a new and fresh way.
In this portion we see a unique recap of the previous study that has some profound revelation. The chapters above end a very broad and reflective menorah mirror image or what is known as a Chiasm or a Chiastic structure that speaks to our relationship with God in Spirit and in Truth
We are presented with a curious understanding that Sapphire was most likely the stone used in the creation of the Ten Commandments. Gd day wrote the first set, Moses wrote the second set. Seems likely Moses would need to stay up in the mountain forty days and forty nights to chisel such a hard rock, the second hardest to diamond. The inference that this is Sapphire comes from an earlier chapter in Exodus. the only other known gemstone carved with sacred writings is carved in green emerald
Today we learn about the blessing of the sabbath and the keeping of the commandments as a blessing that we are to treasure now that we have been welcomed into Gods kingdom through Yeshua’s Grace at the cross by his blood.
In this portion we read about the altar of incense, the perfuming and oil used for the menorah and the preists. We also read about the census of Israel, or what some have called the redemption of the first born sons.
Today we learn about the chronological debate of this chapter as taking place before the previous 3. We also dwell in the awe of God as he feasts with Moses, Aaron & sons wand the elders, curious;y seeming to omit Joshua from the feast. Finally we dwell on the prophetic understanding of r0.days and 40 nights
We conclude the book of the covenant by examining the Torah taken to a l higher level by YEshua Messiah in Matt 5:13-48. Followed by other new and Old Testament references to flesh out the laws conveyed as a means of understanding how order was kept in the wilderness of Israel and in the settled land of Cannon. WE also see a grand picture of Yeshua as the Angel of the Lord.
Unique in the six days of creation is day six. The Samaritan Torah says we are created in the image and form of God whom they call "Shemaah" or "Eloooowwem". Examining the BIble we see that indeed, prior to mans disobedience of Gods one commandment which gave dominion to the enemy to Eusurpe deceifully we were like the Angels "Benai elohim" in hebrew. Jesus/Yeshua confirms that in the Olam Habah - The world to come, his kingdom we will be like the Angels neither marrying or being given in Marriage. We also discover insights through the commentary from the poets and sages of the Samaritans and their beliefs about Angels in the Torah.
Teaching #2 in a series of 3 by Robert covering the Torah and the detailed laws of ISrael. The laws are also similar to those of other Mesopotamian cultures such as the law of Enshunna and Hamurabi. Both laws and Kingdoms are examined in detail prior to reading the laws of chapters 21-22. While not organized ina particular way we see agrarian, economic, judicial, religious, marital, and employment (servant/servitude) laws detailed as well as those dealing with capital punishment. Much of these laws would have been established by Moses in the prior chapter before Jethro gave his advice. The question of when these were penned or established written law is speculative. Moses could have written them on the journey in the Wilderness. However the fact these sound like established laws in a settle Canaan means that Joshua could have penned them since Moses had passed before such an establishment could take place. Scholars call Exodus 20-23 the Book of the law/Covenant and it is the most frustrating portion of OT scripture to wrestle with
The covenant of Elohim is made manifest. The comparison between the Samaritan Pentituche and the Masoretic Text are made clear contextually. God delivers the Torah to his created Super Power Nation Israel as a light among the nations, a priesthood, to give foundation for our modern justice system.
The breakout hit song of Moses finishes and we examine Mariam for a minute as well as the giving of the What is is? Called Manna for they did not know what it was. God feeds and waters ISrael. Meat in the evening from the birds and Manna in the morning.
Elohim (God) and his angels fight for Israel and show the way of Salvation. Much like the creation in Genesis the reverse of destruction from mans blood, fish, insects, land, until darkness once again shrouds Gods enemies in judgment. The great warrior and creator Redeems Israel mercifully by beginning the process of redemption through creation starting with light, water, clouds, land, etc. Such cosmic balance shows Gods character of God of Iudgment and God of Mercy (Ye-Ho-Vah). We also see Pharaoh using one final principality over the outskirts of Egypt, perhaps Satan himself to try and destroy ISrael as they cross the Reed Sea at the Gulf of Aqaba.
The most controversial of the 3 Torah's. This text while the most copied has performed the exact opposite of its Hebrew cousins of the Samaritan and Massoretic Text from a singular copy into a mass of distribution in various forms. Church fathers from Orogin and Theadotian to Eusebius make there parallel translations, creating the fabric of Christian superiority of Hellenism, if not the Greek as a New and improved text from the Hebrew. With that development it is most closely related to the Samaritan Pentateuch and the three least accurate New Covenant manuscripts of Codex Alexandrious, Sinaticus, and Vaticanus.
The importance of redemption is discussed using a notable example from the prince of preachers Charles Spurgeon. Man and beast need saved for in this knowledge is a profound and humorous explication why we need the blood of the lamb and salvation through Yeshua
This Sabbath we delve in detail on Passover and why we observe it. Sure we can’t live it but we can memorialize it knowing that our Messiah bathed us in his blood to remit our sins. Our perfect spotless lamb that washes us clean so that we can enter his kingdom to make ourselves ready as his bread when the second Exodus and the second Passover occurs so that we can live in his promised land/kingdom.
Our Second introduction examines the oldest Torah, the Samaritan Pentateuch, that is curiously written in a square Paleo-Hebrew Script. A rich history, the Samaritans are the forgotten and heavily smeared "Catholics" of Judaism for vast beliefs in Angels and some psuedo pagan practices. The textual compilation of Torah's is discussed, along with the academic views between the Samaritan and Masoretic translations. With over 6,000 differences between both Hebraic texts we are certain to encounter a unique Torah from an Israelite tribe that is largely forgotten and vanishing.
We begin our introduction to the 3 Torah's starting with the Traditional or "Masoretic" Text. The text published by orthodox Judaism from the JPS (Jewish Publication Society). In the process we will discover the history of the oldest Babylonian Hebrew texts, the useful method of textual criticism, and in the process of the podcast, unintentionally discover a useful website called "The Mechanical Torah" translation that allows non hebrew readers to read Anglicized Hebrew and the English side by side.
Apologies for the loud audio. Didn’t realize how loud the input was. The plague’ s wrap up as we see Pharaoh repenting but without sincerity. Furthermore we encounter the devastation of locusts, the darkness of the separation from God when no light exists who hold all things together in the light and love of God. Finally we see the final blow to Egypt as the first born are slain and the Israelites are redeemed by the blood of the lambs at Passover.
Moses and Aaron battle it out with Janis and Jambris (the magicians of ?Pharoh according to Jewish lore) over who has the bigger God(s). It’s obvious who is the creator because each Egyptian God is foiled in a means which even Atheists cannot logically explain. Bloody water followed by frogs and lice. You would think God would do the lice, then the frogs and the water in that sequence as a natural progression. But knowing our God. YahWeh does all things backwards. To confound the wise and humble the strong. YahWeh 3. Pharoh & the two stooges 0.
Moses heads back to Egypt and has an intense encounter with the God of Israel for not circumcising one of his sons. Meeting his brother they both perform signs and wonders before the elders of ISrael and go before Pharaoh to deliver Gods message.
