Shalom, everyone! We’re posting this week’s Torah portion a little earlier than usual, as we will be offline for the next few days. The Torah portion can be found on our website.
In this week's parashah we find Moshe continuing to recap the Ten Commandments to the "new generation" - which were originally presented in Exodus 20. This parashah serves to remind us of what YHWH said in Numbers 15 concerning the obedience of, and continued worship by, His people once they entered the "Promised Land":
Numbers 15: 17 ADONAI said to Moshe, 18 "Speak to the people of Isra'el; tell them, 'When you enter the land where I am bringing you 19 and eat bread produced in the land, you are to set aside a portion as a gift for ADONAI. 20 Set aside from your first dough a cake as a gift; set it aside as you would set aside a portion of the grain from the threshing-floor. 21 From your first dough you will give ADONAI a portion as a gift through all your generations.
This parashah reading makes it abundantly clear that YHWH expected not only faith and belief in Him, but also obedience to His Torah (Divine Instructions in Righteousness) - And we must ask ourselves, was "obedience" abolished with the death of Yeshua?
