Numbers 13:1-15:41

Joshua 2:1-24

Parashah Shalach Lecha

This Parashah covers the bad report given by the 12 spies sent into the land as well as laws concerning various offerings.

This week's Torah Portion deals with the huge mistake the spies committed by speaking badly about the Land of our King. We will cover the legality and reasons why YHVH was justified to bring punishment to Israel for speaking against the gift of the Land. We will discuss the real reason for the Tzitzit and what they meant in the Ancient Near East social status. These portions are full of legal context that we have never seeing or studied before.

We will also discuss the importance of action with our faith, the Anakim, and then will mainly focus on Numbers 15 and discussing the rights and responsibilities of the ger (stranger/alien) and how that applies to our lives today as believers in Messiah Yeshua.

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

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.

    Hi, Rico: Watching the 2020 teaching. It all of a sudden hit me, when you said Moses had never been to the land: How do we process his appearance at the transfiguration? Has the location of the “high mountain” been determined? Is it possibly Mount Nebo? Thanks!!
