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 More Literal

TRI is very pleased to bring you the study resource, “Simply More Literal,” a translation and notes on Torah texts in a manner that is consistent with the “p'shat” meaning of the text. “P'shat” is the Hebrew word for the literal, plain, historical sense of a verse. We provide grammatically legitimate alternative readings to traditional translations that are consistent with knowing ourselves as new creations in the Holy One of Israel.

Torah Portion from Briteinu – Bechukotai – בחקתי

The Blessings and Curses

The last parasha in Leviticus is a unique one so far in this commentary, but it is not unique to the Torah. There is a longer, better known passage near the end of Deuteronomy of similar content.

There are three distinct parts in Parashat Bechukotai: parts I and II are both in chapter 26. They are the blessings and the curses. Part III is chapter 27. It consists of more teaching covering redemption of property and tithing. The majority of this study will be spent examining the blessings and the curses.

From the Haftarah

God Will Be Known Through Israel's Return

This haftarah is another double portion, but it is a combination of readings from two entirely different passages in the book of Jeremiah. The haftarah from Behukotai is Jeremiah 16:19–17:14. Essentially this section is one where the prophet is admonishing the people to choose to trust God instead of trusting in idols. All throughout the passage Jeremiah discusses the disadvantages of idolatry and the many blessings of reliance on the one true God.

The haftarah from Behar is from Jeremiah 32:6–27, wherein, rather than decrying the sins of idolatry, Jeremiah is instructed by God to do one of his several “prophetic actions.”

“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.
