Torah Portion – Beha’alotcha (B’midbar 8:1 – 12:16)

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings, Torah Portions

This is our d'rash (commentary) on the torah portion, Beha'alotcha or "when you kindle." In Leviticus 8, the Torah teaches of the consecration of the Kohenim. In Numbers 8, the Torah teaches of the consecration of the Levi'im (Levites) as they assume the position of the "firstborn" of Israel.

In this torah portion we also learn of the Pesach sheni (second Passover) and its possible connection to a second exodus. Most notable in this portion is the murmuring against Moses and the lust for the food of Egypt. In this story we see how the Creator often grants His people what they wish but in order that they might discover that what they wanted was not what they needed. Blessings! (Approximately 90 minutes).

Torah Portion: Behaalotcha
This is Bill's commentary on the torah portion, Beha'alotcha or "when you kindle." In this portion, the Torah teaches of the consecration of the Levi'im (Levites) as they assume the position of the "firstborn" of Israel. Like the priests they had to be consecrated that they might "safeguard" the sanctuary and serve the people of Israel. We also learn of the Pesach sheni (second Passover) and its possible connection to a second exodus. Yet, most notable in this portion is the murmuring against Moses instigated by the "mixed multitude" and the subsequent lust for the food of Egypt. As a result we see that the Creator sometimes gives His people what they want but in order that they might discover that it was not what they needed. Blessings! (Approximately 90 minutes).

    Bill,

    I know you are on your cruise right now, I just wanted to comment and give praise to YHVH for the gift you are to the body. I usually read your pdf file outlines and I ALWAYS glean so much from them. I appreciate your hard work and being a servant to the body.

    I see the “set apart” from the set apart as being the 144,000 and not the Bride. They are birthed from the bride, but the two are distinct and different just as the Levites had a different function and priority (to YHVH first) as YaHshua did.

    Thanks again and Shabbat Shalom!

    Hi Bill, I’ve missed commenting that it is interesting that you said “30 days” in 11: 20 , which in Hebrew text says Chodesh/New Moon/ lunar month which has 30 days.
    And we do know the Ruach/Holy Spirit did not only started falling at Pentecost as claimed by Christianity, but here, and other places in the Tanakh, are many instances of folks prophesying when the Ruach rested upon them.
    Yes, the Bride will definitely be set-apart from the set-apart ones!
