Torah Portions is an introduction to the weekly reading of the Bible in a Messianic Jewish context, and will help propel your spiritual life forward!
We live in a broken world. Suffering, fighting, and injustice dominate in a world that does not know God. Even churches and spiritual communities are suffering from division, materialism, scandal, and attrition.
The Bible is God’s self-revelation to humanity. It is the divine roadmap to a brighter future. It is the solution to the problems facing God’s people and the entire world.
Jewish communities throughout the world stay in unity with one another by reading and studying the very same passage of Scripture at once, week by week. This remarkable act of unity has been going on for centuries, and you can become a part of it today!
In Christianity today, studying and applying the Bible is not emphasized enough. When the Bible is studied, it is often misunderstood.
The Bible was entrusted to a particular people and culture—Israel—who was given the task to spread God’s light throughout the world. In a desire to universalize the Scriptures and make them seem more personally relevant, some people have divorced the Scriptures from their original Jewish context. Outside of the proper context, people mistakenly feel free to interpret it as they see fit. This results in confusion and misunderstanding.
The teachings of Jesus and the entire New Testament are the climax of the Bible’s message. But all too often, people neglect the message’s equally important foundation: the law, the prophets, and the writings of the Old Testament. Reading the Bible in such a lopsided manner is like reading a roadmap upside-down; it’s not going to get you to your desired destination!
By restoring the Bible to its historical, cultural, and linguistic context, and by giving proper attention to the Bible’s own foundation and complete message, the people of God will see correction and healing. The world will taste redemption and holiness, and God will be glorified.
As a Judeo-Christian organization, our mission at Worship At the ROC is to provide the context and framework for the Bible’s teachings. With a clear understanding of Scriptures in their Jewish context, the meaning of the Bible snaps into focus in a surprising and exciting way. The teachings of Jesus—Rabbi Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah—come alive and crystallize like never before.
Reawaken your faith, gain new insights into the Scriptures, and take your relationship with the God of the Bible and the Jewish Messiah to a whole new level. Connect with the original vision of Yeshua’s first believers, and take part in the prophetic destiny of Israel!
