The sad narrative of Abraham seeking a burial plot for his wife Sarah begins this portion, but moves into a much more joyous mood. Abraham sends forth his servant to find a bride for his son Isaac. As we begin to see this passage on a deeper allegorical level, it takes on much greater dimension and significance. Keith will discuss how Abraham's servant is an archetype of Elijah/ John the Baptist who is sent to prepare the way and to the bride to the bridegroom.
This portion is packed with richness. Keith discusses the mysterious guests that appeared unto Abraham on that hot day as he was recovering from being circumcised. Keith begins to connect the dots of this portion with many other areas of the scripture.
Who or what did Abraham really see that day? What did that day have to do with the feasts? What did it have to do with the temple and Y'shua's return?
In this episode, Keith continues by discussing the first five commandments being a mirror of the last five. That means that "Honor your Father and Mother" would not only relate to human relationships, but primarily relationship with the Creator.
Keith discusses the word "Adam" and examines the letters that comprise the word including the numerical values. He shows the relationship between YHVH and Adam.
He then shows a number of passages from the scripture in which the Creator is presented in the motherly role of bringing forth children, giving milk and nurturing.
In Lech Lecha, (Go for yourself) we begin to get a glimpse of the character and trials of the patriarch Abraham. Our narrative begins with Abram begin called out from among his land, family and culture as he begins his journey of revelation and truth. Keith discusses some of the promises made to Abram and contrasts the failures of Babel with the actions of faithful Abraham.
Keith discusses who it actually was that appeared unto Abram and went between the animal pieces when the covenant was made. He also discusses what it actually was that Abram believed that was accounted unto him as righteousness.
As he continues to explore this fascinating subject, Keith discusses how the first and last letters of the Torah combine with the three letters of the Tetragrammaton to to form interesting words and concepts.
He also discusses the masculine and feminine as it relates to various words for commandments, judgments, statues, etc. In this program, we see the different roles of the Father and Mother in giving and teaching commandments.
Keith also discusses how the last five of the Ten Commandments mirror the first five.
In this strange portion, Keith discusses the Sons of God (Bnai ha Elohim) and what brought about the flood during Noah's time. Y'shua said that his coming would be like the days of Noah were before the flood. Keith discusses some of the things that characterized the days of Noah. He also discusses some of the aspects of prophecy contained in this section of scripture and how we are seeing similar things in our day.
As we begin a new Torah cycle, Keith discusses the first portion in Genesis. He questions some of the historic viewpoints that Creationist often hold and compares these views to scripture. He also discusses some of the patterns that are established from the beginning as well as makes some comparisons with the book of Revelation.
During Sukkot, Keith gave a three part PowerPoint presentation that covered many aspects of the subject of prophecy. In part I, he challenges many of the prophecy scenarios that are commonly accepted without question. In part two, he goes deeper into the discussion and looks at prophecy though more of a wide angle lens. In part three, he takes us through many of the references to the feasts in Revelation.
