Hebrew Roots/Torah observance

TORAH OBSERVANCE

With the restoration of Torah observance there is also of course a return to the ancient system of the study of the Torah which goes back to the second Temple period and was in existence at the time of Yeshua. This was begun by Ezra after the Jews returned from their Babylonian captivity. A standardised pattern of study meant that all of Yahweh God's people were studying the same portion at the same time and moving forward as one community in their understanding of the Word.

This also meant that any person could go into any synagogue anywhere in the world and be prepared for the subject of study. Thus Yeshua knew the appointed time to proclaim the "acceptable year of Yahweh" (Luke 4:16-19) when He went into the synagogue at Nazareth. Just as Yeshua and Paul walked into the synagogues and opened to the portion for that week, so it is also possible to do the same today, among those who are walking the same Way.

This pattern of study has continued to the present day in Jewish communities and is now being incorporated by the redeemed community of Yeshua.

The Torah readings which follow are compiled from the insights and understanding of Hebrew scholars and Rabbis who have expounded these portions of scripture in much the same way as has been done now for thousands of years.

When God's people study together, they grow together. One benefit with keeping the Torah pattern of study, is being in harmony with everyone else who is following the same schedule. This brings unity into the Body of Messiah as the Holy Spirit moves forward in preparing us to be presented to our Bridegroom as a bride without spot or wrinkle.

The Torah portions go through in a cycle from Genesis to Deuteronomy; ending in the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Simchat Torah -22nd Tishrie) and starting again to renew the cycle on the 23rd Tishrei from the first chapter of Genesis.
