Tazria/Metsora – Echoes Through Scripture

Torah Portion Tazria-Metsora

Leviticus 12:1 - 15:37

This year we will be going through the Torah portion cycle looking for themes which occur in each Torah portion that recurs throughout the rest of Scripture with a special focus on connecting them to the Apostolic Writings (New Testament).

In Tazria-Metsora, we will discuss the connections between leprosy and the human condition of mortality. Then, we will take this understanding and connect the leper purification ritual in Leviticus 14 to Isaiah 53 and to the work of Yeshua.

    I am wondering who would have been poor? Or better yet, how would you know if someone was poor during Ancient times. THis may sound silly, but I wonder if people would try to get away with bringing one less lamb and a dove, because they wanted to save money.

    Thank you Ryan! Your joy bubbled over in this teaching and the scholarly approach and care you took with the translation of Isaiah 53 makes me want to study any Scripture you have ever translated. What a blessing! Congratulations on finishing your Masters. May Yah continue to richly bless you and your family with a love of His WORD.

    Great teaching Ryan, I always enjoy your lessons on this topic.

  4. I think this more aptly refers to the scattered Northern Kingdom than does the scene with the Canaanite woman.
    Joh 10:16
    16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
