Introduction To The Life Of King David Part 2

This week Rabbi Glenn launched the new study of King David by going through his introductory notes (see below).  He then read and discussed Judges 19-21, in order to set the historical situation into which Samuel would emerge, and through him, Saul and David. There was also about 10-15 minutes of Q/A.     Short of Perfection… but Sufficient An

Sh’lach L’cha – “Send Out For Yourself”

The parasha this Shabbat is called Sh’lach L’cha, meaning “send out for yourself” and spans Numbers: 13-15. God said to Moses, “Send out for yourself men so that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the sons of Israel.” Moses chose one leader from each of the tribes, and sent them on a fact-finding

1 Corinthians 6:1-11 – I’ll See You in Court!

(or: how to completely destroy your credibility) Don’t you just love it when you hear a Christian (usually one with a pride issue) claim that there aren’t any good churches and say something like, “I want to be part of an authentic ‘New Testament’ church.” My response is, “Oh really? Like, say, the Church at Corinth (not exactly a sterling

Tazria-Metzora – “She Gives Birth”-“Concerning Lepers”

Our parashot for this Shabbat are Tazria, meaning “when she gives birth” and Metzora, meaning “concerning lepers”, covering Leviticus 12-15. The general theme is distinguishing what is clean from what is unclean. The temporary separation of individuals who were unclean from the community had to do with the presence of a Holy God in the midst of the camp of

Bikkurim – “First Fruits” 2017

This week Rabbi Glenn did a focused study of Scripture on why Messiah had to rise from the dead, and the significance of it happening on the 3rd day.   He also read about Bikkurim, the holiday of First Fruits, and spent a little time in Q/A.

Genesis 38

This week Rabbi Glenn studied Genesis 38 tonight (Judah and Tamar). He tied the importance of Judah to the genealogical line of Messiah Yeshua, and demonstrated how God's grace overrides the messes we make. Despite the grotesque circumstances surrounding the birth of Perez (and Zerah), God allowed Perez to be in the ancestral line of King David and of Messiah

Terumah – “Offerings” – When God Invites Himself Over

The parasha for this Shabbat is entitled Terumah and covers Exodus 25:1 through 27:19. This morning, rather than our usual 5-7 minute commentary, I’ll be expanding our parasha into a full message. Terumah means contribution, gift or offering. The parasha opens with God’s invitation to raise a contribution - a terumah. It was not to be under any compulsion, but

Gossip – Just Say “No”

The thoughts I will be sharing with you this morning from Scripture fall under the category of the Second Great Commandment – “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” I have a riddle to propound to you. I wield no weapon, nor do I even raise a hand, and yet I can inflict wounds from which some will never recover.

Genesis 30 and 31

This week Rabbi Glenn covered Genesis 30:25-32:2, the section that describes Jacob's desire to return to Canaan, the deal Laban strikes with Jacob to get all the speckled, spotted and striped animals, Jacob's ingenious method to increase his own flock, his eventual secret departure from Laban, Laban's pursuit of him and their meeting up and covenant agreement to leave one another alone.
