Welcome!

 

Thank you for visiting 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.

Dear Students of God’s Word,

If you see any printed material circulating that you do not find available on one of our web sites, it is unofficial. If the printed material has been translated from English to another language, whoever did that translation of our teaching, did not do this together with us and we did not check the translation to see if it is what we teach or not. Please be advised. And if you see such a work circulating, please contact us at:
torahresourcesinternational@gmail.com to let us know about it. Thank you.

Torah Portion from Briteinu – Chuqat  חקת

Mini-Mysteries

Besides the opening parashiyot of Genesis, very few Torah portions have more important events in them than the one now before us. In this sidra we learn about the ashes of the red cow; the waters of Meribah; the death of Aaron and Miriam; the raised up snake; and the first battles of this new generation as they travel to the edge of the Promised Land and encamp across from Jericho on the plains of Moab.

Yet, for all of its action, are there any parashiyot that contain more mysteries than this one? What is the mystery of the red cow? How and why did it work? What specifically was the sin of Moshe that forfeited him the right to enter the Promised Land? How did looking at a bronze snake on a pole cure those who had been bitten by real serpents? For these reasons, we have chosen to call this week’s commentary “Mini-Mysteries”!

From the Haftarah

Qualities of a Leader

Haftarat Chuqat contains one of the strangest stories in the book of Judges. It is the account of the fall and rise of Jephtah, the son of Gilead. Being the son of a harlot, he was ostracized by his half brothers. He then took up residence away from them in another part of the country. However, he also had a reputation for being a great warrior. Accordingly, when the sons of Gilead found themselves threatened by the Ammonites, they went to attempt to secure his services in hopes that Jephtah would be their leader.

He agreed to do so — but only on his terms. His conditions were that if he were to secure a victory over the Ammonites, they would make him the leader of the Gileadites, thus reversing the shame that had surrounded his birth. His brothers and other elders of Gilead agreed. Consequently, Jephtah led their men in victory.

“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.
