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.


Simply Literal will not be available until November due to the heavy teaching schedules of TRI. 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 – Vayetze – ויצא

 
The Battle Of The Wits

The main character of Parashat Vayetze is Jacob. This portion begins as Jacob is busy packing his bags to flee from his angry brother, Esau, and closes with Jacob fleeing again, but this time from his angry father-in-law and uncle, Laban. During his journeys, we see Jacob caught in a cycle of deception. In this battle of wits, a younger Jacob, whose life has thus far been characterized by shrewdness, is pitted against an older more experienced conniver, Laban.

From the Haftarah

The Ever-Merciful Hand of Grace

This haftarah begins with a rather enigmatic reference to Jacob, Israel's ancestor. The material seems to be out of context when compared with its textual surroundings, although it really is not, as we shall see. Moreover, it is a very difficult section to interpret.

Hosea, the prophet, is renouncing Israel's sins and their failure to seek God. If they chose to not come back to the Lord their God, Hosea explained to them that they only await a terrible end.
