Don't Forget to

This Parashah covers the blessings for obedience and the warning not to forget who the source of the blessings is. Once again the Creator teaches us to trust and believe in HIS promises. Praise Yah for his faithfulness and for keeping his word with his people Israel.

In my travels I encounter many believers from the denominational christian world that use the word Love without the commitment that it requires. They only love you when you agree with them or when they want something from you. The reason why that occurs is because we have lost the original meaning of the word Ahav (Love) from the covenant legal perspective.

Ahav was a legal term used by Kings, Princes and people that were LOYAL to the commitment that a Brit (Covenant) requires. I will do my best to share what the context of this word really means but not from a affectionate context but from a covenant legal term.

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

  1. Marriage is the same thing, it is devotion to the vows we made to each other, not how we feel emotionally. Love is a choice, when faced with conflict, we must remember the covenant vows made and how we going to solve the problem to keep our vows. Marriage has become not about devotion or loyalty to the wedding vows or marriage covenant; but to if I feel good about you. We often marry wrongly because that person made us feel good, “I love him”
    Devotion or loyalty to marriage partner can give us good feelings; but it’s not what holds marriage together.
