The Psalms as Torah
Welcome to the series where we will be investigating each psalm in light of the Torah, honor and shame, justice & righteousness, and analyzing the genre of each psalm and its relationship to the surrounding psalms. I would challenge each of you to read the psalms which will be covered for yourself prior to watching the teaching and reflect upon how each functions as a form of worship to YHWH.
Psalm 15 gives us insight into the requirements for entering the Temple in order to commune with God. Rather than ritual requirements, this Psalm focuses upon the ethical requirements of how to treat your fellow man as the means for being in God's image and entering His house.
