Description



(REGISTRATION is strongly recommended - there is no cost to this class. One registration per person except for married couples. Only those who register will be able to receive articles and internet links related to the study plus notices if a class is canceled or if there are special events. Semester One - 9/10, 9/17, 10/1, 10/8, 10/15, 11/5, 11/12, 11/26).

New Bible study from Light of Menorah on the first five books of the Bible - Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy - better known as the TORAH. This is a Torah study will focus on the historical and cultural context of the Torah emphaszing the archaeology, geography, history, culture, customs and the languages of the ancient Middle East.

Each book will be studied over two years. So, Genesis will be studied in 8 sessions this fall, 8 sessions this spring, 8 sessions in the fall of 2018 and eight sessions in the sping of 2019. Once Genesis is complete, the book of Exodus will be studied in a similar manner.

Four purposes of this study ...

1) In Jesus' day and until 100 A.D. and for years after, the only Bible the early Messianic assembly (church) had was the Hebrew Scriptures - the Old Testament. In the Torah, the 1st five books of the Bible, those early believers saw Messiah Jesus and the read of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Now it's our turn. We will study the Torah to see Yeshua, God, Lord, Messiah, Savior and the Gospel, just like the first believers.

2) Jesus says in John 5:39 that all scripture testifies of Him. He said this sometime between 24-30 A.D. (Note - Herod began building the Temple in his 18th year of his reign - about 20-19 B.C. In John 2:20 we read that Jesus was alive and was into His ministry 46 years after it began to be built. So, this probably was 26 B.C. Thus, the range of years makes sense). For those who first heard Him this meant the Old Testament - the Hebrew Scriptures. This means the Torah (the 1st five books of the Bible) and the books of the Prophets were all about Yeshua. Yeshua tells where to look for Him, for the redemption plan, and the Gospel. So if Jesus says it we will go for it.

3) Torah is not LAW - that is an incorrect translation of the Hebrew word. It actually means instruction with an aim in mind. Torah, the first five books of the Bible, are God's instruction. Thus, the early believers, who were mostly Jewish, knew the Torah was God's instruction and guidance for each day. For us too!! He never changes and neither does His word. We will delve into the books of Moses, the Torah, and hear God speak to us again so we can live as His people in these difficult days.

4) Who are those who first heard the Torah? Probably the Hebrews on the plains of Moab before Moses died. How did they hear the words of Torah, the books of Moses? All they knew was Egypt and slavery. They knew nothing of Israel. They knew nothing about a tabernacle or the feasts or sacrifices. They had seemingly forgotten about the God of Abraham and perhpas may have even assimilated into the pagan culture of Egypt. And God used the culture of Egypt, the culture that the Hebrews were immersed in, to help His people learn of Him and His instruction. Jesus did it in the Galilee. Jesus did it again in Turkey and Greece and Rome. Jesus is God and He said He never changes. So, we will also study His Torah to try and grasp how God used ancient Egypt to help the Hebrews know Him and His ways to live righteously before Him.
