Torah Portion Pinchas Complete

Numbers 25:10-29:40

1 Kings 18:46-19:21

Pinjas

Don't Forget to

This Parashah covers the covenant of shalom that Pinchas receives for killing Cosbi and Zimri, the order to harass the Midianites because of Ba'al Peor, the census of the next generation of Israelites, the ruling over the daughters of Zelophad, the transfer of power from Mosheh to Joshua, and the commandments concerning the offerings for daily, Shabbat, New Moon, and Feast day services.

This teaching is a very important portion about the roles of Messiah during the first coming and the role of Messiah in the second coming.

The understanding of the Temple Service is critical to know in which role Yeshua came the first time. The point is about if Yeshua is the LITERAL KING OF THE EARTH RIGHT NOW? or The HIGH PRIEST OF THE HEAVENLY TABERNACLE?

You will be challenged by this teaching in trying to reconcile some things that we were instructed in the system of Christianity.

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. Rico,

    This was the best anointed study! Thank you so much for the teaching that pierced my heart with conviction and understanding as the dawn of the day. We appreciate the love and zeal you have to teach us every Shabbat.

    Rico,
    The mention of the ritual tent outside and near the temple/tabernacle area where the man brought the Midianite woman to perform their fertility ritual act, reminds me of a verse I read in Ezekiel.

    “He said to me, ‘Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell among the sons of Israel forever. And the house of Israel will not again defile My holy name, neither they nor their kings, by their harlotry and by the corpses of their kings when they die, by setting their threshold by My threshold and their door post beside My door post, with only the wall between Me and them. And they have defiled My holy name by their abominations which they have committed. So I have consumed them in My anger. Now let them put away their harlotry and the fcorpses of their kings far from Me; and I will dwell among them forever.”

    This verse clarifies that the fertility ritual tent outside the Temple of YHWH was indeed a common practice, still even so 100’s of years later in Ezekiel’s time.

    Shalom
    Daisy

  3. I remember struggling with the role of Messiah now when I heard this teaching last year. I could not understand it, even though the teaching is clear. But shazamm! I understand it today! HalleluYAH! Praise God. Next, I need to understand “the rapture”. When does it happen?
    Thank you Brother Rico. What a very detailed teaching. Bravo!
    Where is your Temple Service teaching please?
    Shalom,
    DeVora Clark

  4. Thank you Rico for your dedication and sharing. It is most precious to me, receiving your teachings. I cannot imagine the hours of study going into all the information. It really hurts my heart when I hear of any criticism you have to endure, but I guess that is also utilized unto even better fruit. I honour and love you for your humbleness before our Father and that is precisely the reason why I have chosen to stick with your teachings, though I have no doubt in my mind that you were divinely placed in my walk. Your loyalty and passion for your King is what enthuses me the most. Thank you for making yourself vulnerable and paying the price so we can grow in the ways of our Father. All the background information you have been sharing is bringing so many loose pieces together it is almost as if the larger picture is nearing completion. You have proven yourself as loyal and honourable unto YAWEH; your and our Elohim. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I am extremely grateful for your service to your King and it humbles me that I may also benefit therein.

  5. Shalom!

    Wow! So the Hertz Chumash shows a broken vav. Does the Hertz also have commentary that gives attention to and explanation of the “broken vav”? My Stone’s Edition has a regular vav.

    Which brings a question to mind; which is, we are told the great care the sofer makes in copying a scroll. What is the process and standardization for copying a scroll to a printed page?

    Is there only a certain scroll from which any printed page in a book may be taken from?

    Thanks B

  6. Shalom, dear Rico! What an intense teaching on the High Priest and all that the roles of Messiah encompass. I too, pray for Wisdom from YHWH in absorbing His knowledge to help others know the Truth, and not the deceitful doctrines they’ve been exposed to due to the ignorance of well-meaning pastors. I hope to find a Spirit-filled Messianic congregation in my area, NW Georgia. I am so grateful that you are dedicated to helping others find the Way in Messiah HaMoshiach. Toda! Devora Clark:)

  7. Great teaching Rico and I have no problem with you using the rabbi’s writings. It would be easier for me to watch you if you were not wearing a brimmed cap, it casts a shadow over your eyes. Hope you don’t mind me being honest with you because you are favorite Torah teacher and brought us lots of enlightment. Keep up the good work! Yoseph

  8. Rico,
    I enjoyed your teaching of the Pinchas Torah Portion at Lion & Lamb this week. How wonderful that your son could enjoy the camp and have you with him. I am sorry your other son was ill. You looked very nice in your freshly ironed shirt even though your helpmate was unable to iron for you. I pray for the protection of Psalm 91 over you and your family daily. You honor YHWH with your teaching and you bless us in so doing.
