Torah Portion: Miketz (B’reshiyt 41:1 – 44:17)

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings, Torah Portions

Shalom! This is my commentary on the portion Miketz - "at the end." For years, this portion has fascinated me, not only for the fascinating story but, for the prophetic elements. Understanding that we interpret the end from "the beginning" (Isa. 46:8-10), that a torah portion is called "at the end" should grab our attention. Hope you enjoy. Approximately 90 minutes.

Torah Portion - Miketz
This is Bill's commentary on the portion, Miketz - "at the end." In this portion, not only are we treated to a fascinating story of endurance and faithfulness, but are also given a preview of things that will happen at the end of days: the years of plenty followed by the years of famine, in which the family of Israel is restored by virtue of a long, lost brother. This is a fascinating study. Other highlights include:
  • How "Good" is bad and "Bad" is good.
  • The East Wind and its modern significance.
  • Why Joseph looks like an Egyptian.
  • Joseph's connection to "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.
  • Much more - approximately 90 minutes.

    Is the “Kadeema” to which you referred related to the political party that Ariel Sharon founded (other than Obama’s Political Action Committee)?

    By the way, Strong’s concordance refers to Euroclydon (which is found at the end of Acts–which apparently is symbolic of the end of the end of days) as a destroying south east wind. I realize that some translations refer to it as a “noreaster” (a wind from the north east) but that’s supposition as far as I can tell. From the commentaries, the definition that makes the most sense is an understanding that starts with Strong’s definition and includes a typhoon that comes from all directions–which is probably the way it will happen, as it did with Job.

      Steve; kadima is the same word as the political party Sharon founded because the political statement was the same – “forward.” Thanks for the other info. Shalom.
