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 – Va’etchanan ואתחנן

God Is a Consuming Fire

I know I shouldn't do this, but let me ask you anyway. What is your favorite part of the Torah? Is it perhaps the Creation story? Or, maybe you like the Exodus account. You say the story of Joseph is your favorite? What about the giving of the Ten Commandments?

All of these are certainly highlights in the Torah, but for me, there are two parashiyot that really stand out. One is Parasha Nitzavim. The other is our present one, Va’etchanan. Just take a quick glance at this week’s parasha and you will see why. It contains such important and provocative passages as the Ten Commandments and the Shema — two of the most important pieces of Scripture in Jewish liturgy and theology. In addition, this parasha discusses why Israel was chosen and how Israel is to be a witness among the nations. Furthermore, this sidra teaches some of the most fundamental truths about God.

From the Haftarah

The Announcement of Comfort

This passage represents Isaiah at his best. Of course, that statement is a hyperbole; all of his writing is superb and demonstrates the same outstanding literary qualities. But this passage is perhaps, one of his most well known. It introduces the second half of his book and centers on comforting God’s people, as the opening words indicate to us. The reason for the comfort, according to the text, is because God is coming! Therefore, Israel is to make the way ready for His arrival. The haftarah concludes with a great section comparing the follies of idolatry with the blessings of knowing the one true God, the One who is coming.

“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.
