Metzora(Leper) Leviticus/Vayikra 14:1-15:33

Torah Portion:  Metzora(Leper) Leviticus/Vayikra 14:1-15:33

Haftorah Reading II Kings 7:3-20

Tonight, we continue our study of leprosy by looking at the process by which a person, house or clothing could be cleaned from leprosy. To begin, I would like us to look at several scriptures in the Messianic writings that speak of this problem in the time of Yeshua.

In Luke 17:11-19 we read of Yeshua meeting 10 lepers on His way to Jerusalem. They asked Him to heal them from this disease. He told them to go and show themselves to the priest in Jerusalem. As they went, they were cleansed. Yeshua did exactly what our Torah portion explained had to be done to be considered clean again. The lepers were told to go before the priest in Jerusalem to confirm their healing.

Vayikra (He Called) Leviticus/Vayikra 1:1-5:26

Torah Portion:  Vayikra (He Called) Leviticus/Vayikra 1:1-5:26

Haftorah Reading Isaiah 43:21-44:23

 

This week we begin a new book of the Torah by studying the first portion of Vayikra. In the English Bible we know it by its Greek name of Leviticus, meaning the work of the priests. I want us to look at the opening word of our section and see what we can learn from the way G-d spoke to Moshe.

P’kudei(Accounts) Exodus(Sh’mot) 38:21-40:38

Torah Portion:  P’kudei(Accounts) Exodus(Sh’mot) 38:21-40:38

Haftorah Reading: I Kings 7:40-8:38

 

Tonight, we finish the book of Sh’mot/Exodus as we read of the listing of all the material used in the construction of the Mishkan or Tabernacle and of the setting up of the structure. As we come to the end of this Torah portion we read of the glory of G-d settling on the Mishkan. In Exodus 38:34-35 we read where even Moshe could not enter the Mishkan because of the cloud that covered it and the glory of the L-rd filled it. In II Chronicles7:1-3 we again read of the Spirit of G-d falling when the first Temple was dedicated on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
