Exodus 35:1 - 40:38

1 Kings 7:13-26, 7:40-50, 7:51-8:21


This Parashah covers the building of the tabernacle. It is a combination of the two Torah portions so please be sure to watch both videos in the appropriate years. It deals with the review of the Tabernacle, the holy anointing of the Priesthood, and articles of the Mishkan. We also see the importance of graded holiness, the functionality of the altar, the two parts of the "ark of the covenant", and see the importance of understanding faith.

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.

  1. Would it be valuable to have a diagram of 7 days of creation; and a diagram of how the human embryo developes while studying, how the tabernacle is assembled? The days of creation show the order of how resources were used to create, and then Sabbath or Completion. The tabernacles uses resources from earth, minerals, plants incense, animal, from inside out, water, air, dirt, minieral?

  2. 3/16. Thanks Daniel! When you read about the Temple being as the naval of the world it brought to mind the imagery of when a child is often laid down on a mother’s stomach at birth, so too is each child of Israel brought to the Temple. Beautiful. Thanks for reading all of the sources, that was instructive.

  3. Thank you Daniel! Great stuff! II Thess. 2:4 says the antichrist will sit in the TEMPLE OF GOD…. it’s still Yah’s Temple, not the antichrist’s temple!!

  4. Ricco very excellant presentation on ANET. I learned a lot; which is why I am going to ask this quention.

    2nd Temple no annointing oil. So, we don’t see Yeshua doing any ceremonial with those He sent out. So can today’s teachers, preachers really say they are “annointed of G-d”? can someone else say that of another person? Should we be using annointing people?

  5. Urgent,,,,, please tell me I did not get who can enter the holy of holies maybe I misunderstood. When the curtain rent, tore was it the fist curtain or the curtain that was closer to the Ark. Guide me where I can read it or see a teaching on this subject please. Thanks

  6. Personally speaking, in our past Sunday keeping lives, we were worn out all the time. Back then if you asked me what is rest, it was very much self-centered in being entertained and taking vacations as opposed to real rest being focused on our Creator and Savior on the day He commanded.
    Revelation 14:11 “…and they have NO REST, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

  7. Thank you, Rico, and your wife and family, for your diligent studying and for sharing what you are learning from YHVH our Elohim! I am learning so much, thanks to what YHVH is teaching you! And thank you for sharing how Yeshua (and Shaul and Jochanan, in the B’rit Chadashah) taught using Temple language, and how Yeshua is “in” The Torah portions you teach (and we study, along with you and on our own)!
    Numbers 6:24-27
    Shalom Shalom!

  8. Shaloam Friends;

    Regarding the Shabbat; yes individual in home, more than one in some assebly – but it is cosmic and universal, if you are one at home; Shabbat is observed globaly and you are as One Echad.

    Perhaps had Adam never have fallen Shabbat the 7th Day there’d be no other days or places accept where he was. We see often if someone/thing is unclean – they are out the camp, congregation for 7 days. There’s wonder in the Jewish Idea of the 7 Millenial Plan of Abba.

      Behira – that is beautiful. I agree wholeheartedly. Thank you & Shabbat Shalom (I know you wrote this 2 years ago but hopefully you will read this year.), Cassie
