Genesis 47:28 - 50:26

1 Kings 2:1-12

Vayechi 2022 wt

This Parashah covers the adoption of Yoseph's two sons and the final blessing of the sons of Jacob. This Portion deals with the prophetic restoration of the whole house of Israel. The story of Joseph as the Messiah figure in the role of the king and how the final restoration will not happen until the whole house of Israel is gathered as one.

We are connecting the story of Ephraim and Manasseh with the Ancient near East laws of Adoption. Did you know that the language Jacob used in the blessing to the children of Joseph lines up perfectly with the International understanding of Adoption in the Ancient world. I will do my best to connect that language to the letters of Paul and the clues left for us all through our Scriptures. We no longer need the approval of any system of Religion including Judaism.

We respect our older brother Judah and will learn from them but they do not hold the key to enter the kingdom only our heavenly father dictates who is His or not. Yeshua's work of redemption will guarantee our share of the inheritance in the kingdom. I praise our father YHVH for opening the way of Salvation and enter with the full rights of a citizen into His perfect Kingdom.

  1. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the idea that one must be buried on the same day comes from the Torah instructions about what to do with a person who is cursed and put to death by hanging. They are not to remain on the tree over night to avoid defiling the land. I see nothing about people who die of natural causes, therefore I don’t believe it is against Torah to embalm or to postpone the burial unless you were put to death by hanging.
