Exodus 21:1 - 24:18

Jeremiah 34:8-22, 33:25-26


This Parashah covers the giving of the law code in the Torah. Mishpatim is an important Portion for us to understand the The Judgments of How to handle ourselves with others. You Shall Love your Neighbor as your self is self evident in this portion. I know that once we understand the principles of Mishpatim then we will get a greater appreciation for the Commandments of Yah for our lives.

Many people when they study the Ancient Near East have a hard time understanding the differences between the Torah Laws and the laws of the nations like the ones by Hammurabi. Some of the Laws seem to be similar but when you research the intent and purpose of those pagan kings to enact the laws you quickly realize how much control, fear, and death dominated their legal codes.

On the other hand you have the Holy Laws of YHVH which reveal His Justice, Graciousness and Truth of His purpose and equity. I am so happy to be a servant of YHVH with the amazing opportunity to teach the righteous Commandments of my King.

We will also discuss the Messenger of YHWH found in chapter 23 of Exodus and showing a legal relationship between the word"sent"(shalach in hebrew) and the Royal Messenger of the KING. This same legal relationship will show more clarity of Yeshua being the Sent Royal Messenger of the Covenant, and also how we are sent into the world to also be messengers of the Covenant.

I pray that this research will help you stand for the Torah when someone misrepresents the words of our Heavenly King.

  1. Just finished watching your teaching on Mishpatim (I think this is your recent teaching). Loved your method of teaching. Factual, direct and easy to follow. Appreciate you. Thank you. Shalom

  2. Just viewed “Roots”. Thank you for doing that, I really appreciated watching your roots.
    Very exciting and encouraging. I pray for you and thank you for your labor of love.

  3. Hi Rico,
    In Exodus 21:37 If a man steals the ox he must pay back 5 oxen for 1 ox and 4 sheep for 1 sheep that is not 1/5. One fifth would be to repay only a part of an ox or sheep, but this says he must pay 4 or 5 times what he stole.
    Blessings to you and Shabbat shalom Brother.
