Don't Forget to
This Parashah covers many important aspects of the law code. One of things we study her is in regards to the reason of why Yeshua needed to be resurrected for the kingdom to be restored.
We will also be covering a variety of the ancillary commandments contained within this portion. Many of the commands had to do with increased rights for women when understood in light of ANE culture. Also of high interest is the command in Deut 22:9 that states that a field of mixed seeds becomes kadash...
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

To your question: yes it makes sense. Takes me several days to go through these teachings including the “nugget” writing down notes. More info to share to the “nations”. Please let me know when it’s time to fight:
I agreww wiith what you said about Sarah and Hagar; I would add Hagar the maiidservant dishonored her mistress Sarah, sent out the camp to repent, but then Ismael dishonored his brother Jacob (Hebrew indictes sexua molestation) sent out camp with Hagar permantly, but with provision and blessing.
Thanks for mentioning HIS character. It is a reminder that we should be showing HIS character in our actions toward others.
Yaweh Bless You and Your Family Rico, Yaweh is really using you to explain this deep matter. Thank You, Thank You!!!!
Interesting I’ll have to verify!
Lolol shabbat shalom all

A rebellious son: To some degree we follow this law; Parents who have a rebellious son; may take him to their pastor, Catholic Priest, reverend, or Family Counseling; if they cannot correct the behavior the son most likely will get into some trouble, police catch him take him to court, and put in jail; even worse if the son kills someome and can be proven he may be executed.
Today, Jerusalem Temple Mount is the captive woman.
Awesome teaching as always. Yahwey blessing you so that you can guide and direct us each on our own path to open up the scriptures. Praise be to Yah…. Thank you again Rico. Was good to see you again there in Salem. That was a birthday blessing to me, thank You Yah. I always learn so much from your diligence and encourages me in mine.
Rico, thank you so much for shedding new light on exactly what the “good news” is – restoring the Kingdom to the lost tribes of Israel.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Rico, I have just listened to this for a second time, and it is such a clear teaching of the bride, and her restoration. Thank you so much for all your effort that it takes to give understanding of the scriptures.
Hey, brother! This is an awesome teaching! Thank you so much for all your studying and hard work that you do! We pray always for you and your family, for Yahweh to continue to anoint you to teach us, and to keep you and your family strong that you can stand!
I do have one question for you in regards to the firstborn blessing and what you said about Reuben and Joseph, you said it was legal in that time for Jacob to “choose” which son he wanted to bless. I am not disagreeing with that statement, but I thought the reason the blessing could go to Joseph because Reuben slept with his fathers concubine so he forfeited the firstborn blessing. So, is it both? Or am I incorrect in that thinking? Shalom, may you have a blessed Shabbat!
