Why Study or read Torah portions as a Christian... Aren't we done with that stuff?  Actually you can gain great insight that much of the Church has lost in our roots of our faith.  After the resurrection of the Lord Jesus He presented Himself to two disciples on the Road to Emmaus Luke 24:13-27 and began to talk with them.  As He questioned them He began to expound what the Moses (Torah) "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself."  This was before the New Testament was compiled.  *NOTE: Amos37 Does NOT believe and or endorse "a return to The Law"  We learn from it, for it is the knowledge of sin. Romans 3:20 and has been replaced. We are under a New Covenant with a New Priesthood... Hebrews 7:12 "Melchisedec.  

In summary we find it very rewarding as God is NOT done with Israel according to the flesh as examples for our learning.  1 Corinthians 10:11.  Galatians, Hebrews & Romans all clearly lay out the New Testament believer gentile.  Praise God He has grafted us into the covenants & promises and made us fellow heirs.  Romans 11, Gal 3:29, Eph 3:6 & Hbr 6:17.

The early Church when reasoning from the scriptures "Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures"  Acts 17:2.  Today I am personally challenged to present Jesus (Yeshua) as Messiah to the Jewish people who need to have Him presented in the bible from the Torah and Prophets.  This is a fruitful study that you can easily incorporate into your regular studies.  The below portions are hyper linked to the Torah PORTIONS site and you can also use Hebrew4Christians with audio helps.  We hope you enjoy what the LORD will show you in this study.  Shalom, Keith

So He (Jesus) came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.  And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written   .... And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."  Luke 4:16-21

About Torah PORTIONS

Amos37 does not believe in a return to the law.  Hebrew Roots for us is a tool to understand our roots quite literally.   We simply use the Hebrew grammar and customs to improve our overall hermeneutic while reading our bible.  A simple review of Galatians warns of a return to the law.  What we can learn is the cycle of Torah reading that the Jews had durning the time of Jesus during His earthly ministry can give us insight.  Having said that we warn that too many have become enamored with the insights tucked away in the Old Testament and the first 5 books of Moses (Torah).  That many have started to try to keep the law & the ancient customs.  Amos37 thinks it is this Torah cycle that will eventually guide Israel back to her Messiah.   * Note:  There are many dangers for Christians who enter into some of the cult like movements of a return to The Law. 

All the Torah Portions

From Judiasm 101   Each week in synagogue, we read (or, more accurately, chant, because it is sung) a passage from the Torah. This passage is referred to as a parshah. The first parshah, for example, is Parshat Bereishit, which covers from the beginning of Genesis to the story of Noah. There are 54 parshahs, one for each week of a leap year, so that in the course of a year, we read the entire Torah (Genesis to Deuteronomy) in our services. During non-leap years, there are 50 weeks, so some of the shorter portions are doubled up. We read the last portion of the Torah right before a holiday called Simchat Torah (Rejoicing in the Law), which occurs in October, a few weeks after Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). On Simchat Torah, we read the last portion of the Torah, and proceed immediately to the first paragraph of Genesis, showing that the Torah is a circle, and never ends.
