Deuteronomy 1:1-3:22

Isaiah 1:1-27

sanhedrin - Devarim

This portion is important retelling of the wondering in wilderness by the children of Israel. Also, I cover the concepts of Teshuvah in the explanation of the Haftarah of Consolation for the next 7 weeks before Yom Teruah. Understanding this principles will teach us as a Kingdom in the dispersion how to come together as one people, one heart, one mind, one consent. I pray this Torah Portion is a blessing to you and continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

We will deal with the legal aspects of the book of Deuteronomy. In this portion we will introduce the different sections of the book of Deuteronomy from a covenant perspective. Connecting the Biblical account with archaeological evidence from the Ancient Near East that puts Moses in a real timeline in History. This evidence will help us understand this book from a different viewpoint than previously studied.

This page includes Torah Portions from multiple years covered by Wisdom in Torah. Each year we covered the Torah from a different perspective so you can explore each Parashah from a different perspective and focus.

  • 2010 Portions: Focus on Messianic connections in the Parashah
  • ANET Portions: Focus on the ancient Near Eastern cultural context of the Parashah
  • Mitzvot Portions: Focus on explaining and exploring the commandments found in the Parashah (in progress)
  • 2015 Portions: Revisiting the Parashah looking at the ancient cultural context more in depth with additional areas that have been researched
  • Brit Portions: Focus on connecting the Brit Hadashah (New Testament) to the Parashah

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

  1. Right, the movies we seen of Exodos leads us to believe he was a mere sheppard, when trained as a Prince, he would have been in military, perhaps a general, been in many battles, yes knew the legal structures of other nations, and would have been familiar with geography and many of the god ideas.

  2. Just wondering if it might be better said or thought of , we have nothing recorded as in any decisions by the “fishers of men” that openly opposed the Sanhedrin?

    Just saying

  3. I like the history of the Sanhedrin’s council and the historic aspects of the Levitical judicial system during the Second Temple Period. This teaching is a real blessing to me. On of my favorites. Thank you so much Rico for putting this teaching out.

  4. That is such a good comment that we need to hear often – the Nazarene Council did not over rule the Sanhedrin decisions!!!!!!! To bring it closer to home in the U.S. – people are not following the law with sanctuary cities. 😮

  5. Thanks for the details you included on mishna and gemara Rico – those specifics are the types of things that can really trip people up. I repent for any ‘rulings’ I have made or been a part of knowingly or unknowingly regarding halacha. I pray for the day when we call all repent in unity for our errors. Thank you again.

    Serious question on Lev 19:27 and not shaving your face. I was fired recently from a denominational church for following the Torah. The Ruach has had me begin a small Messianic congregation in NW Arkansas. Therefore, since I no longer shave because of the scripture listed above how is it that you and others who teach the Torah do not follow this misvot. I do not ask this question to humiliate you I ask to learn, I know you wear tzitzi’s so I am kind of confused can you explain. Ty

      Thanks for the question and in our research we have found that in this verse the word SHAVE does not appear. The context of the verses prior and after deals with cthonic worship which deals with the underworld gods. In the ancient near east the beard was a sign of honor and it was connected to culture.

      The context deals with mourning rituals and worship to underworld gods in egypt and the levant.
