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.
No Torah Readings scheduled except for those concerning the Fast of Ab.
The purpose of the fast is to consider our idolatry and repent, as the Jews did, lamenting the destruction of Jerusalem.
See notes on the fast here.
