Torah Portion Tazria – Metsora Complete

Leviticus 12:1 - 15:33

2 Kings 4:42 - 5:19, 7:3-20


This week's Torah Portion focuses on the laws associated with ritual impurity and how to cleanse one's self from such impurity. It is important to remember that even though a so-called 'sin' sacrifice is brought, it is not because the offerer committed a moral sin, but simply because of the prolonged impurity which brings defilement to YHVH's altar.

While many may shy away from this portion because of the graphic nature of some of the impurities, this portion actually contains within it a greater understanding of the work of Yeshua in how he restores fallen man from a state of living death to immortal life. I pray this portion is a blessing to you.

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

    Very well done as usual. I always learn so much from this ministry. Please tell me who does the intro music.. I just love it and would like to have it in my home to help usher in Shabbat. Thank you.

  2. Ryan that was a great teaching, how you related Isaiah 53 to Yeshua in Lev 13 & 14, to the leper, wow. Thank you for making the Metzora chapter a lot more meaningful to me now.

  3. I remember you doing this before, but this time it was so much more exposing me to how this chapter in Lev. and all the rules and regulations that had to take place with the blood. You know the people had to bring there own animal they had to feel the life going out, the warm blood going down them, it brought them into seeing and doing this that they would never sin in this way again. Then bringing it forward to now of how that relates to Yeshua in all of the offerings. You are so right when you say He didn’t take on all our sins, our sins are there and we have to come and ask to be forgiven by the one who acted on our behalf just like in Leviticus. Thank you for your message for today.
