  1. Excellent teaching giving new light for me to understand the Torah. I wonder if this teaching is in DVD form to give to others? I’ve been studying since Shabbat making notes (6 days of study) for review thus DVD might be good for others as well? Thank you also that the next Torah portion if available to be ready for this coming Shabbat so as to share with our small, but mighty in the Lord, flock, praise His name forever!
    Thank you for all you do, lift you and your family up each morning in prayer.

  2. Sorry Daiel that did’t answer the question. It seems the human is a highly integrated systems, that you cannot separate; Greeks separate and the EQyptians separated literally looking for the life forece. We have a brain, a mind (emotions, deceisiions) frontal lobe where we place the box with the Torah inside, we bind our body, arm to do your will. Can you give more help?

  3. The Torah justice is the best, is restorative in nature. For instance the one who goes into debt, become indentured to someone to work for until his debt is paid or until the 7th year, where he choose to stay or takes his leave. While other systems are punitive, always a punishment, steal cut off a hand. Want to keep families and thereby the nation whole. Yeshovah is restorative; not punitive.

  4. Also, HOly seems to also be a legal term, it is only defined by Yehovah, and sstudying the Temple, it seems as though there are levels of holiness, only certian priest perform certain practices with certain meals, if you take the silver shovel with coals into the Holy area to put in the incense altar, is encroachem, or a violation of security; just like only certain people an go into certain areas of the White House depeniing on their secruty clearance. That’s why today when it said, the Temple Mount is Holy to Christian, Jews and Muslims; that’s not correct, what is deemed Holy, is Holy to HaShem. Set apart from the regular, for a specific purpose deemed by eshovah, not mankind.

  5. LOVE in Covenant Legal terms is faithful loyal, devoted; there’s no “emotional” context, as in military you don’t have to love your drill sarget, you are to respect and obey. In a Kingdom, the expectation is the same to have honor, respect and obediance to the King, along the way as the relationship grows; you may have feelings of affection for your king.

  6. I just watched Rico’s 2010 videos on the portion. I find it interesting and amazing how timely this was for me in 2016 just as it was for Rico in 2010! Our Father truly knows what we need when we need it! Rico, thank you for the encouragement through the Words of Elohim!
    Shalom!

  7. Shabbat Shalom Rico. Thank you for your teaching today and sharing what Yahweh is doing in your life. Repentance and unity among the brethren is so import. This is not to elevate us but to let you know the we as a small congregation have had victories as we really work hard at these 2 things, not letting defensiveness and offenses steal us away from each other allowing the evil one have a foothold. These are such expectant times with these feast days of awe ahead of us. So be encouraged as Yahweh will keep His promise of Joh 10:16B……..and all the flocks will become one. And there will be One Shepherd….. as we keep the Torah and the Testimony, Isa 8:20.
    All things are in His hands. HaleuYah \o/
    Matt 25:23 well done good and faithful servant
    2 Tim 4:7 keep running the good race till the end.
    Rev 22:14 Blessed are the ones doing His commandments, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and that they may enter by the gates into the city.

  8. Una pregunta al respecto sobre el estudio del 2010 donde Rico dice que en Galatas 3 Pablo usaba un metodo llamado Midrashim como es usado por rabinos para explicar mas el texto. Mi pregunta , puede considerarse lo mismo lo que Hava hizo cuando la serpierte le pregunta acerca del arbol del conocimiento del bien y el mal?

  9. So in the diaspora, which is too far to take your offering, we could have a lamb slaughter and the blood is poured out on the ground? could we make a cup in the doorway to pour blood into as a threshold covenant?
