Triennial Cycle of Torah Readings

torahscroll

We’re studying 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.

Purim!

This Saturday we celebrate Purim and read the whole Book of Esther.
Remember to “Boo” Haman, “Yay” Mordecai, and toast Esther until you can’t tell the difference! Oh yeah, and eat some Hamantaschen.
On Purim we also study history of Esau and the Amalekites, because Haman, the enemy of Mordecai and Esther, was a descendant of the Amalekites through Agag.
You can read our Purim Memo here.
