Join us as we delve into the portion of Bemidbar. (In the Wilderness) We will discuss the importance of the topic of the resurrection and how that theme can be seen throughout the Tanakh. (OT)
This portion begins by mentioning the death of Aaron's two sons. Aaron and the other priests (kohenim) are warned not to go beyond the vail into the Holy of Holies. Only on one day of the year shall the High Priest go past the vail into the the Holy of Holies. We examine several aspects of the service and customs of Yom Kippur. (Day of Atonement) In light of Yom Kippur, we discuss several passages from the Brit Chadesha (NT) such as the beginning of Y'shua's ministry, the Mount of Transfiguration and passages from Revelation. We also discuss various kinds of trumpets and aspects of the Year of Jubilee. (Yovel)
In this double portion, we briefly examine the laws of purity governing childbirth and discuss the theme of the seed that runs through all of the scripture. We also examine the laws pertaining to "tzara'at", usually translated as leprosy. In this study, we discuss the deeper implications of this affliction on human flesh, in areas of hair and beards, clothing and even in houses. We will see that there are not only important spiritual lessons to be learned from this passage, but prophetic as well.

In Vayachel (And Assembled), we discuss the subject of the "church." What is the "church" and when did it originate? We also look at the commandment that prohibits kindling a fire on the Sabbath. What exactly does it mean to not kindle a fore on the Sabbath?
We also take a little time to run down a few rabbit trails and examine the question: Are we five sensory or multisensory beings?
