Torah Portion Ki-Tetze Complete

Deuteronomy 21:10 - 25:19

Isaiah 54:1-10


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

  1. Wow, truly you have helped us to understand what the Gospel of Good News is….understanding the why of Yeshua’s need to come, why He had to die and why He had to resurrect. I think it is now so clear for me that I can present it much much better than before. Your hard work and dedication to teach us the intimate understanding of Torah is so appreciated. Thank you.

  2. Thank you so much! In a way Yeshua did not endorse her behavior but declared it sin by saying go and sin no more. She was sinning and his admonition may have been more of a warning because she could have been killed. What I wonder now in light of last week’s portion was how many scribes and Pharisees were present? Were they inviting yeshua to be part of a shoftim? Did they have the right number at the right time of day? It is all very fascinating. Plus it makes so much sense to me now the canaanite practices, incest etc. This week’s portion defines uncovering nakedness as sleeping with your father’s wife so if Canaan was the product of Hams incestuous act it follows why he was cursed and the origin of his descendants’ behavior

  3. I apologize for contacting you during Shabbat but this happens almost every Shabbat. I decide to wait til the following week and then I don’t get back to it til it happens again the following Shabbat. This Torah reading was extremely important to me as every Torah is but this week is different–so much I need to learn. The first half is always no problem but the second has been a weekly situation since I have been a member other than one time this did not happen. The 2nd Torah Portion will play a few minutes then I get the message “Sorry, there was an error encountered while loading this video. Watch on Vimeo” When I click on Vimeo, I always get message–“Permission denied. Sorry there is no video here. Either it was deleted or it never existed in the first place. Such are the mysteries of the internet.” Please, please let me know how I can correct this. Thank you so much and Shabbat Shalom!

  4. The gospel was taught Jesus died for your sins now you go to heaven. Not enough
    The gospel is the good news. What’s the good news? Not enough
    When a king rose up; he proclaimed Isiah Good news the prisoners go free, debts are forgiven; a new king has arrived a renewed kingdom is open to the castaways.

    So why did He only quote 1/2 of the Isriah passage? Is it related to works of High Priest and then the rest is for a king? Why?

  5. A new man is also a political term; meaning a new country or Kingdom. So in Yeshua is Kingdom renewal; their problem was they had no instructions for “repatriation”. A term used today; when people give up citiznship; or are deported to another country; at sometime there is abilbity to return to the original country. This is why all the fuss for should nations be circumsied and mindful of the whole covenant? or how do we reintroduce them? and there were decendants of those orignally cast out; to day we speak in terms of “right of return”.

  6. Is using “Christian” music; considered adultry??? isn’t it a cultural expession no less than xmas trees? especially “rock” check he video “I solled my soul to rock n roll”???

    Gay married pastor – gevault. Some business contracts are going to required acknowledge different genders, record companies, received 501(3) benefites, building leases.

    Fantasic part one!

  7. Thanks Daniel. A good word. Now that I’m understanding, I see and experience it everywhere. When we do things with proper protocol and order, we ensure honor is maintained. When we don’t, we receive and/or bring about chaos and shame. It’s everywhere.

    I enjoyed the crickets! Had to stop the audio to see if it was at my house. haha!! Don’t stop or try to change anything. Was just a funny for me that I enjoyed too.

    Shalom, Terri

  8. Rico, I have just started studying again. What first century sources can I use to back up the statement that the kingdom of heaven in the first century was understood to be the 10 tribes? People ask for sources and I would like to know and provide them as this is different than what we have been taught in the church. I can see it I the torah and I want to be able to back up what I say. Thanks!

  9. Shalom, Rico! I’m so GLAD to hear this teaching again b/c it fits perfectly into the last pages of my manuscript for my 1st prayer book. WOW! All of the Christian churches need to be taught this. It would change the superficial face of religion.

  10. Hey Rico

    I lost volume after 11 minutes on part one. The video continued and there was only some popping noise for the rest of the video. Part two played ok!
