Beresheet (In the Beginning)


Torah Portion: Bereshit (In the Beginning) Genesis 1:1-6:8

HafTorah: Isaiah 42:5-43:11

New Testament: John 1:1-18

For the next few weeks I want us to look at the Torah and the New Testament together to see how one compliments and illuminates the other.  Where better to see this than here in Genesis and in John.  They both start with exactly the same words, “In the beginning.” In fact I would think John had Genesis in mind as he wrote his gospel.
