Exodus 21:1 - 24:18

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

Mishpatim wt

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.

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. To keep each other accountable, yes in an honorable way, which is privately, not on the public internet. Also, we must have a real relationship as in a congregation; that’s where accountability takes place, not one person speaking to a vast internet audience where we don’t know each other. We have no authority to keep accountable someone else ministry from over the internet. I can understand how you must feel going from one assemble to another to teach and perhaps hearing the fussing; but we all get tired of hearing you and other Torah teachers fuss about all the fussing – is the samething. Just teach your very best as you normally do; we are not incharge of others in the different assemblies. Very much like the time of the judges.

  2. One thing I have against Hebrew Roots movement is they start calling out each other in public – that’s just what you’ve done brother. We need to stop airing out in public our families dirty laundry. If we don’t like their “fighting” over petty stuff (by the way is not petty to them; so we are not tryng to understand their view point) if you have ought against your neighbor, go to him privately to get resolution, if he fails to understand, then take 2 with you. We should not be communicating the “messyness of Hebrew community in public; which the internet is. And is not just you and yourpeople but also the folks on Hebrew Nation Radio.

  3. Also, the area of Israel was not Great like US. The number of judges at the lower levels was dependant on the numbers of citizens. They understood, “you are your brothers keeper” and that the wrong doing of one, affected the entire community. The concept of honor, means you live life honorable to show off your King. The one problem with having auto insurance, homeowners insurance, is a wrong doers don’t feel the pain of the other person; we simply let our insurance lawyers handle the matter, and the suffering of another is far from us. We also don’t often feel the pain of our penalty; maybe the insurance goes up a bit; but there is little realization as to what we did to another person. They understood that the prosperity of the nation depended upon; riight behavior of everyone.

  4. Is good to mention that the records of the Israelite show few executions. If they thought there were many; is called a bloody adjudication; and it means there’s problem in the community and they needed to find it and make corrections. The laws were strict, known by all “teach them to your children when you rise up” few penalties, also justice was carried out swiftly, there were no penal institutions in ancient Israel.

  5. Brit Portion!!! Kinship! So very good Rico and so very true!!! I’ve experienced the sadness and wrong from not having kinship at my level. I know it’s much worse on a bigger scale. Thanks for all you do!!! This teaching is very important. Keep teaching and keep pressing forward!

  6. Shabbat Shalom from San Antonio, Texas.

    Excellent Brit portion teaching on Kinship Relations!!! Very necessary to “lone rangers”, “I exclude you” believers out there.

    Thank Yah for the research you do and for putting out with wisdom.

  7. Shalom Ricco;

    I have noticed a great improvement in “choosing wise words”. Thank you Mrs Cortez and good job Ricco on following her advise. Your wise words go down like honey.

    I really like the teaching you did on all the mitzvot; is a good teaching tool; wish I had a CD of it. Great Job Team!

    Thanks for teaching on the commandments. Your teachings have brought great blessings to me and my family through the Word. The Father is using you in great ways. Through your love and excitement for the Word I see Him in you! Your teachings help me see unity in the set apart spirit because as I study and learn, then I go over your teaching I see the father speaking to you what he speaks to me. As I see you live out the commands I see Psalm 119:97-100 taking place in your life. Thank you for allowing the father to use you! Your brother in Yeshua Messiah Chris
