Triennial Cycle of Torah Readings

torahscroll

We’re starting a study of  the first five books of the Bible, the Torah, in imitation of how Jesus and the disciples studied the scriptures. The whole process will take three and a half years. Passages from the Prophets and the Psalms are paired with those from the Torah, which often brings out hidden meaning and clarifies many of the sayings of Jesus.

We’ll publish the readings for each week here, and you are encouraged to comment, ask questions or add insights each week. Follow along with us!

More background on the Triennial Cycle is found here.
