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 More Literal for September, Zechariah 7, is now available. All past issues are available. 

Simply More Literal

TRI is very pleased to bring you the study resource, “Simply More 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 – Bereshit – בראשית 

The Garden Above and The Garden Below

The Hebrew title for this first book of the Bible is Bereshit (בראשית). It is also the first word in the Hebrew text, as well as the name for the first Torah portion. Bereshit is actually a compound word comprised of two Hebrew words: bet (ב) the preposition meaning “in” and rosh (ראש), which means “beginning.” Hence, the title for this first book of the Torah means “in the beginning” and therefore, indicates to us that the book describes the beginnings of things.

From the Haftarah

The Servant of the Lord

The Haftarah for Parashat Bereshit is Isaiah 42:5–43:11.  This passage, like the next two haftarot are from the section of the Prophecy of Israel which was intended, among other things to bring comfort to the remnant of God’s people who would be taken into exile into Babylon. Chapters 42–43 are part of a section extending from chapters 40 to 53. This is the part of Isaiah that is often called the “Book of the Servant” in that the main subject is the “Servant of the Lord.”

“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.
