Final Triennial Torah Reading

Simchat Torah for the Triennial Torah Reading Cycle

Shalom Chaverim. We have reached the final pericope of Mordechai (Mark) and D’barim.  We will be discussing the concluding remarks of the Torah and the Nazarean Codicil.

We will do a superficial review of the Amalek and then launch out into the depths of these final words to see what relevance they might have.

We will look at the three titles for the B’ne Yisrael to see what they tell us. We will also look at the cryptic passage from Jude which tells us that Michael the archangel argued over the body of Moshe. What could Jude (Hakham Tsefet’s scribe) possibly have been saying.  The class will deepen when we take a deeper look at all the snakes of the past pericope and further relevance.

This Torah Focus looked at Mark 12:28-34  In this pericope of Mordechai Yeshua discusses the relative mitzvot which deals with the Shema and loving ones neighbor. Of course this was not new to Rabbinic thought.  Some questions to ponder for tonight’s class will be…

  1. How did Yeshua and the Sofer (Scribe) find common ground when Bible scholars suggest that Yeshua was opposed to and by all the Soferim.?
  2. Were there any further commonalities between Yeshua and this Sofer?
  3. Were other Soferim present?
  4. What is the most important mitzvah of all?
  5. We ask these questions and several others.

We looked a may relative facets of the Torah Seder and its presented ideas along with connections and things concluded in the Torah Seder.

Mesorah of Mark 104c

Mesorah of Mark Series Connecting the Torah and the Nazarean Codicil

This Mesorah of Mark looked at the 104c pericope of Mark. This material is weighed against B’Midbar 22:2-23:9, which contains the story of Balaam and Balak. How does the story of Mordechai 12:18-27 where the Tz’dukim (Sadducees) present the story of the seven brothers and the resurrection. What is the real focus of this pericope? We delve into all of this material and much more.
