Parashah Bereshit Complete

Genesis 1:1 - 6:8

Isaiah 42:5 - 43:10

bereshit-world

Don't Forget to

This Parashah covers the creation of the world, the creation of mankind, the fall of mankind, the sins of Cain, and the history of the world up to Noach. Verse by verse study of the first 6 chapters of Genesis. I pray that this teachings are a blessing to you and spread the word so that others can enjoy the study of the heart of Yah. Also, We are going to be studying the Torah and focusing on the countries that surrounded Israel. By searching for context we will be able to have a better understanding of the ancient legal covenant and the conditions in which the ancient world understood covenants. In this portion we will see the patterns of Suzerain, Grant and Covenant Lawsuit being establish by YHVH in the opening of the book of Genesis. The ancient world did not invent anything, it was YHVH that created and set up the system of government and conditions of Covenant found in the Ancient Near East.

This is the first Parashah for the 2010-11 Torah cycle. This is a 3-part 3-hour study on the first portion of the year. Verse by verse study of the first 6 chapters of Genesis. I pray that this teachings are a blessing to you and spread the word so that others can enjoy the study of the heart of Yah. Shalom, Rico

The 2012-13 Torah Portions in light of the Ancient Near East Customs and Context. We are going to be studying the Torah and focusing on the countries that surrounded Israel. By searching for context we will be able to have a better understanding of the ancient legal covenant and the conditions in which the ancient world understood covenants. In this portion we will see the patterns of Suzerain, Grant and Covenant Lawsuit being establish by YHVH in the opening of the book of Genesis. The ancient world did not invent anything, it was YHVH that created and set up the system of government and conditions of Covenant found in the Ancient Near East.

The 2014- 2015 cycle we will being laying the foundation for Genesis 1-3 being the establishment of YHWH's Macro-Temple in the Cosmos.
Remember that Moshe is shown the pattern of the Heavenly Temple for instructing on how to build the Earthly Tabernacle. We see evidence of this all though out the Bible, including the First Century Writings. With this being the case, I believe it is safe to say the we should be able to see that YHWH would show mankind the template of HIS Macro Temple in the Covenant Text prior to the pattern or microcosm of it extending to the Earth. My hope is that after seeing the evidence in this week's torah portion as well as the upcoming full series on the Macro-Temple of YHWH in the Cosmos, is that we will have a much clearer understanding of Scripture from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 indeed being a Temple Text, a Text that is written in Temple Language.

The Brit Portion for this week's reading comes from the book of Revelation chapters 20-22 and we will be talking about the prophetic message of the restoration of Order from the cosmic chaos. A cosmological perspective to the creation story and how it develops in the Scriptures. Shabbat as the climax of the creation week and the same story is repeated in the book of Revelation chapters 20-22. Finally, Yah restores his kingdom, people, bring Shalom and establishes his Sovereignty, kingship and dominion over his creation by dwelling and Resting with us.

  1. Rico,

    Shalom brother. I hope you’re well. I’ve been enjoying the teachings and resources on here and I appreciate your hard work and passion for Gods word.
    Could you help with something? I’m wanting to build my library for study I get a bit overwhelmed with where to start.
    Could you recommend to me books in the categories of;

    Ancient Near East (going to get some J. Walton books),
    Jewish thought – teaching, history and practice, like for the Shabbat table etc. (mishnah?)
    New Testamament commentaries for understanding culture and history of first century and Pauls letters etc.
    History of the prophets

    These are the main categories that I’d like to be building a library in. Are there other categories you’d recommend with resources? Thanks man!
    Best,
