Tetzaveh (You shall command) Sh’mot/Ex. 27:20-30:10

Torah Portion: Tetzaveh (You shall command) Sh’mot/Ex. 27:20-30:10

Haftorah Reading: Ezekiel 43:10-27

 

Much of this Torah portion is concerned with the installation and anointing of Aaron as high priest and his children as priests. Their purpose being to serve G-d and the people in the  Mishkan or Tabernacle and later in the Temple in Jerusalem. They served the people as their go between with G-d. The office of high priest was passed down through Aaron’s family and descendants over the years.  Here in our portion, great care and attention to details were given to everything the priest wore and how Aaron and his sons served the people of Israel.

Haftorah Reading: Jeremiah 34:8-22; 33:25-26

Today we read and study together the Torah portion Judgements.  This is usually not one of the most gripping portions we read during the year. In this portion we read more than fifty laws covering a wide range of subjects. I would like for you to consider how we as believers in Yeshua consider the issue of laws found throughout the scripture. Have you ever heard, “Why study all these laws, we as believers are under grace now. Laws are the opposite of grace. Since we are believers in Yeshua there is no reason for us to be concerned with all these laws we read in the Torah.”
