Torah Portion: Bo(Come)Ex./Sh’mot 10:1-13:16

Haftorah Reading: Jeremiah 46:13-28

 

Today we study another important Torah portion. I want us to search out what it has to say to us and how we live our lives. This portion is so much more than a history lesson on how the Israelites were set free from Egypt by the hand of G-d.

I want to begin by thanking everyone that sent in answers to my questions this week. It is always a help to me when I write to read your personal understanding of the Torah portion. Please continue to pray for those of our group who are sick.

 

My last question to you this week was, “By what name did the children of Israel not know G-d?” This question is based on Exodus 6:3-4. “I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as G-d Almighty, but by My name L-rd I was not known to them…”  However, in Genesis 15:7-8 we read G-d using this same name when speaking to Avraham. “I am the L-rd, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit. And he said, “L-rd G-d how shall I know that I will inherit it?” Here Avraham used the holy name of G-d – HaShem.

Haftorah Reading: Jeremiah 1:1-2:3

Today I want to start our time together by addressing a topic around which there is still controversy. This week I read an article by a prominent Messianic Jewish leader in Israel. In his article he addressed the subject of what was required by the early congregational leaders in Israel on how to best deal with the non-Jews who were coming to faith in the Messiah. When they came to faith in the Messiah what would be required of them since they were not Jewish. This meeting was held in Jerusalem, which was also the place of the only congregation in the land until the last part of the second century of the common era.
