Welcome!

We are so pleased that you have visited our website.

Torah Resources International is an organization comprised of individuals who are seriously committed to knowing Yeshua as the Living Word and Messiah by studying the entire Torah, from Genesis through Revelation. We are a group of teachers and authors who seek to promote the biblically Hebraic concepts of the Torah with the hope that people will gain a greater depth of understanding of Yeshua, as well as how we were created to live.

We invite you to participate in this challenging and exciting learning process with us that you too might catch a glimpse of the truth that the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, are truly darche noam, ways of pleasantness for all who take hold of them.

Upcoming Holiday -- Pesach/Passover -- Erev Pesach 3--11 April, 14--22 Nisan

Pesach is called "The Festival of Freedom" when we celebrate and remember all that the Holy One did to take us out of Egypt, redeem us, and save us to be His People who would call Him by name. As we prepare for this time, let us remember that our lives with Him are a journey in which He is sanctifying us and drawing us ever deeper into knowing Him. Is there anything that we are allowing in our lives to hinder or interfere with this journey? Are we still holding on to anything from "Egypt" or the world system that distracts us from spending time and walking more closely with Him? If so, can I let it go so I can come to the Seder table ready to know myself as "matzah," "drained out" of all but the essence? So, during the period of eating matzah I am able to know clearly that my essence is G-d Himself?

Simply Literal for March, Zechariah 1, is now available. All past issues are available.
 
 
 
 

Simply Literal

TRI is very pleased to bring you the study resource, “Simply Literal.” Each month, we offer translations and translation notes on Torah texts in a manner that is consistent with the “peshat” meaning of the text. “Peshat” is the Hebrew word for the literal, plain, historical sense of a verse. Our translations and notes attempt to bring you into contact with the words and meanings that were intended by the authors.

Torah Portion from Briteinu – Shemini – שמיני

The Fire of Glory

It is about to begin. God revealed. Moshe taught. The people listened. Aaron and his sons obeyed. Now, on the eighth day (9:1) since Aaron and his sons have been consecrated and set apart, Moshe calls an assembly and begins the perpetual daily sacrifices. Everyone with a few glaring exceptions is about to begin to practise daily what Moshe had been teaching them. This is the main thrust of this week’s parasha as it opens in chapter 9.

From the Haftarah

Acknowledging God’s Order

The star player in this parasha is the Ark of the Covenant. The entire haftarah is devoted to relating some of the final “adventures” of the Ark and the people related to it before it found its permanent resting place in the First Temple. Accordingly, when the haftarah opens, we find King David deciding to bring the Ark up to the City of David from its temporary location in Baale Judah. It had remained there for a while in the house of Obed-edom because of David’s reluctance to move it further following the unfortunate incident involving Uzzah.

“Should,” “Must,” or “Have To”

Our hearts want to communicate something that we think is important. In our exploration of the non-Jewish person’s relationship to the Torah, we have scrupulously avoided the use of “must,” “should,” and “have to,” as these ideas are completely inappropriate to the issues at hand.

The use of such words tends to open the door wide to the possibility of legalism taking over. By “legalism,” we mean the belief that adherence to the Torah is a requirement for obtaining, and/or maintaining, one’s justification before God.
