The Psalms as Torah
Psalms 1 & 2
Welcome!!! This is the first of 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.
Psalms 1 & 2 form a literary unit of introduction to the Psalms and as such are extremely important for us to understand the context of the whole book of Psalms. If you are interested in further in depth introduction, please watch the introduction to the series found here: Intro to the Psalms as Torah.
There were two books I mentioned during the teaching that I could not remember the names of that reference the research that speaking aloud can reprogram your mind if done repeatedly.
- Broken Children, Grown-up Pain by Paul Hegstrom, PHD.
- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
