Weekly commentary on the Torah portions with Jeff Gilbert.
Jeff Gilbert is…
not a rabbi,
not considered “Jewish” by the rabbinate and
not authorized by the rabbinate in any way to discuss the words of Torah.
But, I do it anyway.
Join us each week as we discuss the ideas surrounding the weekly divisions of the first five books of the “bible”. These discussions focus on helping those who are not associated, nor maybe even not want association with, any christian, or even rabbinic traditions.
We folk, who are standing between two camps…
on one side christianity, in all it’s shapes and traditions,
on the other side, Judaism, in all it’s shapes and traditions.
We folk have a voice, and we have a right to worship the God of Abraham in the way He details in His written words.
Today, during our live presentation of our walk through Deuteronomy, we discuss Deuteronomy 30. During this presentation we discuss the expectations set within the Torah that, as per Deuteronomy 4 and 13, are mandated as fences for all subsequent prophets to follow. Is a “new” covenant allowed? What are some of the milestones that must occur in order for the restoration to be proclaimed. And did the second temple actually function as a valid, authoritative, place “where I shall place My name”.
Today we work through the commands that tell us to care for one another. This is intended to be heard as part of the sabbath discussion on Deut 15.
Today we chat about the one who would desire to take over the garden of another.
Today we chat about three different levels of “cutting off” that we have seen over the last couple of weeks. And the Exile that Israel began at Kedesh.
Today we discuss the ideas around how God deals with “directly” and how the Texts seems to portray our interaction with God.
Today we discuss the Kingdom of Priests and the Set Apart Nation. How do we act today? And how do we lead others to God?
Today we continue the discussion of the Covenant and the blessings and cursings of our covenant.
Today we recorded the final portion of the 2 part Passover discussion that we did Live on the past Shabbat. Unfortunately that recording suffered a technical issue that cratered the recording. This recording is to replace that recording. Unfortunately, I feel that the recording that was lost was actually a better close to the discussion.
Today I am posting the recording from the Sabbath of Ki-Tissa. I also have added another recording onto the actual Live portion to present a complete thought. I pray that it is understandable, and helpful to your faith.
Today I present a view on what the subject of our “light” is. And what it is that we are to “show” the nations.
