Torah Portion Yitro Complete

Exodus 18:1 - 20:23

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

Jethro-and-Moses

Don't Forget to

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.

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 heard you mention that you do not have a congregation – yet. I am sure you are aware of the many new challenges of buildings and people. I am confident if He so desires, He will teach you and help you accomplish this. Most likely a congregation also means more of your time.

    Your very unique team is needed for the Assemble of Israel. How many teachers out there are there who are well studied in ANET, Honor and Shame, and the Tabernacle and Temple Service? How many? Well there is Joe Good and that’s it. I think each Hebrew Roots group should require their students to go through at least your classes on ANET, and Temple Service. Those two specialites unlock so much of scripture for us. The House of Judah also could use a course at least on ANET.

    Wishing Y’All The Very Best

  2. Wow – this weekend listening to Rico live here in New Mexico was awesome! Thank you to his family for lending us your husband and father. It was such a pleasure for my mom and dad and family to hear the gospel of the kingdom preached. Hopefully Rico likes piñon and have places to use bookmarks. Make sure your wife gets to pick out some. Thank you Adonai for your word and a vessel to be here in N.M. – may we be a light in a dark place!

    Arise and walk – Tom

  3. Rico,

    Is the following an accurate explanation of Ex. 20:5 : third and on the fourth generations Illustrates the Israelite concept of corporate responsibility: in addition to the individual, a community is also collectively responsible for the behavior and sin of its members. This passage does not suggest that future innocents will be held morally accountable for the sins of ancestors but refers to the mutual consequences of sins.

    This explanation was given in the Faithlife Study Bible in Logos.

    Thank you

  4. Wow! Thanks again Rico, you have brought so much new material to the understanding of the Father’s Torah. May we be honorable in our walk and our speech as we share His Heart to the world. May we reflect His Love, Mercy and Honor, through our commitment to His Son, Yeshua. May we be sons that live up to the customs of our ancestors, to be obedient and manifest loyalty, and thus honor The Father! Thanks again for all you do, may YHVH bless and keep you in everything you do! B’Shem Yeshua HaMashiac, Amein! Amein! Amein!

  5. Aloha!

    This has to be one of our favorite Torah portions. We enjoy reading the section of Yethro and wanted share…. it sounds like Yethro is giving Moshe understanding about Judging. Our limited understanding sees this not congregation sizes but about a court system. Possibly like the court system in many countries much like today. Where we maybe have county court, state court, federal court and supreme court. County covers the widest base where supreme covers the ones that would need special attention i.e. Moshe -> 18:22

    Anyhow though we would share since the word that is used in 18:3 is lshaphat.

    Big hugs,
    Frederick & Jennifer Joswick

  7. Man Rico all your hard work is so appreciated, thank you so much for the countless hours of study and prayer and think tanking these teachings must take. Yah bless you so much thank u!

  8. Rico I just cannot express my thanks for doing this for us and for having it at such a price that people like me can afford. I have gleaned so much more already then what I paid albeit at this time I couldn’t afford much more. These teaching have been invaluable to me. Thank You and may Yah Bless You and your family in such a mighty way.
