Torah Portion – Ki Tavo (D’varim 26:1 – 29:9)

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings, Torah Portions

Shalom! This is our commentary on the portion Ki tavo - "when you come (into the land)." In this torah portion, the most prominent feature is the "blessings and curses" presented to Israel as a result of obedience or disobedience. Yet, there are other pretty interesting components in this portion. One of them is a possible allusion to the coming anti-Messiah. Where, you say, is that found? You'll have to listen to the audio. Blessings and hoping you enjoy the teaching. (Approximately 90 minutes)

Torah Portion: Ki Tavo
This is Bill's commentary on the portion Ki tavo - "when you come (into the land)." The most prominent feature of this portion is the "blessings and curses" presented to Israel as a result of obedience or disobedience and the command to affirm the covenant on mounts Gerizim and Ebal. In discussing certain aspects of tithing, one term used in this sidrah may have prophetic implications where the Anti-Messiah is concerned. Much more in this 90 minute teaching.

    Thank You, ABBA for hearts to perceive/know, eyes to see, and ears to hear; and may Yisrael say the same. Amein! May we not be as the blind grope in the darkness.
    May we serve YOU, YHWH with joy, gladness and for the abundance of all things, Amein!
    In my Jerusalem Bible, ‘possess’ by locusts is translated as ‘consume’, but in Hebrew-כָּל־עֵצְ וּפְרִי אַדְמָתֶ יְיָרֵשׁ הַצְּלָצַל
    yarash is to possess! to seize, dispossess, take possession off, inherit, disinherit,
    occupy, impoverish, be an heir

    Thank you, Bill, love your emphasis and clarity in your expounding!

    I am confused about the first and second tithe. After they harvest a whole field, do they take the first fruits out and set aside, then, from that same harvest, a first tithe taken out for the Levites, and then lastly, from that same harvest, a second tithe taken out for taking to temple or poor depending on the year? That would make 3 separate portions coming out of one harvest for specific designations. Am I understanding that correctly?

    • Bill says:

      Kim; Sorry for my delay in responding to your comment but I wanted to make sure that I answered you as accurately and as thoroughly as I could. My understanding is that the first fruits would be set apart first. This didn’t necessarily constitute a tenth of his harvest – just a representation of the different fruits of his harvest and, had to be the first fruits. Then the first tithe (tenth) was set apart for the Levite. The second tithe, the one to be eaten in Jerusalem, is taken during the first, second, fourth and fifth year; a second tithe for the poor was taken during the third and sixth year. So, yes, there were three different portions set aside from each harvest (as I understand it anyway) but the first fruits did not constitute a tenth of the harvest. Hope this helped. Shalom.
