Exodus 18:1 - 20:23

Isaiah 6:1 - 7:6, 9:6-7

Yitro wt

This Parashah covers Yitro's advice to Mosheh on creating leadership in the camp, Israel reaching Mount Sinai, and the giving of the ten words (10 Commandments). In my Opinion the most Important portion in the Torah. This is the day of the encounter with our maker and the day of betrothal. This day the Torah was giving to our People as the bill of rights and declaration of independence from the Slave mentality. Learn how it was the MEMRA of YAH that gave the wonderful words of the Torah (Heart) of YHVH. My passion is the Torah of our King and I decided to try and share with you as much as I can. I just love to study the Mitzvots (commandments) that are found in every torah portion, explain, search context, and learn the Heart of our Creator, it's just incredible.

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. Great Torah Parashah for my 13 year old. He is wanting to ignore the teachings on Shabbat and go his way. I am having some trouble with him and I pray YAH will help me in this walk and teaching my children. Rico, you are a HUGE help to us. Prayers to you in your studies, you have a very tenor voice as well when singing the Aaronic Blessing.

    When I first heard this sung by you a few years back… it woke me up. Chills covered me from head to toe and I never heard anything like it and it gave me a fire in my belly for Truth in HIS Word.

  2. Greetings Rico, If you mention his name in the second hour of this portion, please forgive me because I haven’t listened yet. I have been listening to the first part of this portion and heard you mention an author of another fella , but you could not find his booklet to give his name. Was it Eric Bissel that you were thinking of who teaches paleo?

  3. Rico,
    Thank you so much for the time you put into these! What a blessing… The Power points are SoOOOOO Wonderful, being a visual learner myself, I truly enjoy having something to view as you are teaching on them. Because of your weekly shabbat teachings I have come to REALLY look forward to Shabbat THAT MUCH MORE!! WE are just learning the Hebrew roots, and just learning how to be Torah observant. So your teachings are helping build us up, and prepare us to bring this truth to others! Again your teachings really make Shabbat that much more of a treasure!


  4. Thanks Rico for your teachings on the Torah – – and most of all for your sincerity and enthusiasm. Whenever I feel discouraged durihg the days I remember your zeal and love for Him and for His Torah–and I agree in my spirit—and get ENcouraged!

  5. Shabbat Shalom,
    Another great teaching, Rico. My wife and I were discussing the point you made about the number 611. Didn’t you mention on a previous portion that you and Brad Scott had searched the Torah and found 611 places of the aleph tav? Coincidence…?
    Also, concerning 8+1+1 = New beginnings and resurrection: The Hebrew for truth = “emeit”, can also be referred to mean “aleph” (alluding to G-d, revives) “meit” (the dead). Just another one of those “coincidences” :)…
    BTW, it was a pleasure to break bread and midrash a little with you at The Vine.

  6. Thanks for tying together teaching in the “new testament” with the “old testament”…you really aren’t taught that everything disciples, Yeshua and Paul were saying were quoting or explaining scripture…You would think that would be obvious but not being taught that…you just think it is new stuff. Thanks for bringing that out.

    Also…thanks for giving the Hebrew/Rabbinic interpretation of the “ten” commandments…when seeing them as presented in this Torah Portion…it is so obvious we fall short…the way we were taught…in church circles…we felt pretty good…with the real interpretation…wow…all have sinned…fallen short…really short!

    Thanks again.
