Torah Portion – Massei (B’midbar 33:1 – 36:13)

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings, Torah Portions

Shalom everyone. This is our commentary on the concluding Torah portion of B'midbar, Massei - "journeys." This portion gives an overview of Israel's journeys through the wilderness, from the departure from Egypt until the encampment on the plains of Moav. Also included are instructions to Israel to drive out all the inhabitants of Canaan; the reason being similar to that of why Israel was told to destroy the Midianites. Israel cannot coexist with the corrupting influence of the nations or that influence will ultimately destroy Israel. Much more!  Approximately 60 minutes.

Torah Portion - Massei
This is Bill's commentary on the final portion of B'midbar, Massei - "journeys." This portion gives an overview of Israel's journeys through the wilderness, from the departure from Egypt until the encampment on the plains of Moav. More than being a historical record, each encampment also implies a spiritual lesson. In this portion, Bill highlights a few of those. Also included in this portion are instructions to Israel to drive out all the inhabitants of Canaan, again affirming the necessity for Israel to remove from their midst every corrupting influence. As a "set apart people" we too are to understand that, if we fail to set ourselves apart from the world, the world will set us apart from them. If it comes to that, however, it does not fare well for Israel. Perhaps this hints at why cities of refuge are also included in this portion. Much more! Approximately 60 minutes.

    Shalom…

    In the reviewing of this teaching again, I also am receiving the understanding which actually relates to your current revelations of “In the beginning”

    I can see the 3rd Day Principle applying here….

    Day 1: Abraham Day 2: David 3rd DAY; Messiah

    The 3 divisions of 14 can also be seen as 14 Generations of each Day with the culmination of Messiah retaining the last position in the group to which WE ARE THE 14th GENERATION WHICH IS MESSIAH…
    and which also happens to be the LAST GENERATION WHICH IS THE ONE WHICH SEES THE REBIRTH OF ISRAEL…

    just another Wild thought…

    Thank you so much for this teaching….
    one question – in the last part as you were concluding …you said ” it is about who I am in the Messiah and not about being Jewish”
    can you please explain what you mean by not being Jewish? not be conformed to the tribe?

    • Bill says:

      Sorry I haven’t responded until now. Your question just slipped through the cracks. What I mean by that is, I’ve noticed that a lot of people put, in my view, too much emphasis on trying to be Jewish in appearance and method. But we need to emphasize what the Messiah has called us to be. We are to provoke them to jealousy by lifting up the Messiah – so says Paul. It’s going to be difficult to provoke them to jealousy if I’m trying to be like them in every way. That being said, we are to conform to a biblical image – we are to be like Messiah. We are to keep his instructions but that does not mean I have to conform to a Jewish application. Hope that clarifies somewhat. Shalom.
