Open My Eyes: Wonders of Torah

Open My Eyes – Wonders of Torah (on Amazon)

The catalyst for publishing Open My Eyes – Wonders of Torah came from the myriads of people who, in these last days, are denying the deity of Yeshua and his sonship to the Father.  This is a Bible study of the first five books of the Bible or Torah that reveal Yeshua throughout its written words, it’s language and its shadows.  

The Torah includes the history and foundations of a Biblical faith necessary for a walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Isra’el and is the most obvious place to begin learning about the Creator, His Kingdom, His People, His plan of redemption and His restoration of Isra’el and to delve deeper into Yeshua and His teachings.  

When the Torah was written down by Moshe, he didn’t have the fullness of the Scriptures we have today with the prophets,  the writings, the gospels and the letters.  We have a more complete picture of God’s eternal plan while he had only a glimpse.

When Yeshua became flesh and walked on earth, he only had the Hebrew Scriptures – the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings – for teaching about repentance and the Kingdom of God.  Each Torah portion includes words and actions of Yeshua that prove his faithfulness to the instructions of his Father, the Torah, and his divinity.  

The Torah portion commentary comes from questions my family asked, searched out, and may even still have.  Because Biblical names and Hebrew words have unique meanings different from English,  Hebrew Word Pictures are included that illuminate those nuances. Selah, meaning ‘pause and think about this,’ are also found throughout the text.  At the end of each parashah, traditional readings from the prophets as well as the new testament readings are listed along with a suggested midrash.
