Torah Portion Naso
Numbers 4:21 - 7:89
This year we will be going through the Torah portion cycle with a short teachings under 30 minutes each. Included in this post are the Haftarah portion and the Echoes Through Scriptures from previous years.
In Naso, we will discuss the trial by bitter waters for a suspected adulteress from the perspective of honor and shame to show how this law actually increased the rights of women in the culture.
Shalom! This week we discuss the prophecy concerning the birth of Samson and the requirement of the Nazarite vow. This year we will be spending approximately one hour on each of the Haftarah portions and investigating them from their historical setting and their ancient Near Eastern context as well as making connections back to the Torah Portion. I pray that you will enjoy these teachings!
In Naso, we will discuss the connection between the bitter water trial for the suspected adulteress, Israel as the unfaithful bride of YHWH in Ezekiel 16, the adulterous woman in John 8, and the Samaritan woman by the well in John 4.
