Re’eh – See – ראה
In this week’s Torah portion we are looking at Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17
Moses says “See, I place before you today a blessing and a curse”
Learn under what circumstances the Lord promises blessing and what circumstances He promises a curse.
Learn about Mt Gerazim and why Jesus said “Those who worship God must worship in Spirit and in truth”. Does this have the meaning you thought?
A Temple will be established in the place where God will put His name. Any idea where that is?
Learn the rules about where animals must be sacrificed and does Jesus sacrifice actually end all sacrifices? What about the Messianic Temple – where will it be located and when will it be built? Why do the prophets say there will be sacrifices there?
What does the Lord have to say about idols in the Old and New Testaments.
Is the Messianic banquet the same as the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? What will be eaten there? Is it true that Leviathan is on the menu?
What do the new Messianic borders of Israel look like? Is the River Euphrates and the Nile River really the north/south boundaries?
What is a false prophet? Do signs and wonders count in assessing a prophet? Why do the Jewish people consider Jesus of Nazareth a false prophet? Are they justified in this view?
What are the acceptable foods for the Jewish people to eat and why?
Learn about tithes and charity. Do we do this well in churches today?
Finally the portion ends with the laws of the three pilgrimage festivals—Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot—when all should go to “see and be seen” before God in the Holy Temple.
This and much more in this week’s Torah portion.
