As last year we were so thrilled with our study days again. We got so much out of it and it would be difficult to relate here just how much without resorting to an essay. I guess in a nutshell, I find it amazing to see that whatever story line one follows in these first 5 books of the Bible (Torah), they all lead to the same destination. That is bringing us to the place where we were created to be before the beginning of time - in complete union with God, seeing as he sees and manifesting His life on earth
Before creation God put man inside Himself (even before He created Adam and Eve physically) and repentance returns us to that place. The whole of these scriptures is to bring us to dwelling here on earth but 'in the garden of delight '(Eden - Himself). We are seated in heavenly places in Him and he in us.
I had only ever before seen these truths through Paul's writings in the New Testament, but there they are right at the beginning. Searching these passages through the original Hebrew makes such a difference.
Even the words I use in everyday language take on new meaning, for example 'blessing'. To be blessed is to receive His Word into our life.
I find it fascinating and rewarding to study under Godly Christian men who are also learned scholars in Biblical text, who speak original Hebrew and can dig into these scriptures knowing the background physically, politically and spiritually.
I have therefore decided to dig into some of these depths myself by studying at home with the same course that is used in the Torah Bible College in Israel.
The website for anyone interrested is: http://www.torahresoucesinternational.info/
It seems that for some reason the above link is not working! Try Google instead with just torah resources international.
Seen here my notes on the book of Genesis. I shall work through this before buying the study in Exodus. This will help to spread the cost.
