Scroll to Scroll

Welcome to Scroll to Scroll, Torah portions with Andrew Gabriel Roth. Here you’ll find a list of our Torah portion teachings. We hope you enjoy.


 

Torah Portions

The Scroll to Scroll weekly Torah program is a 2 hour in-depth yet entertaining tour into the full breadth of the Scriptures. Every week, we give you the historical and linguistic tools you need to go deeper into weekly portion, otherwise known as “the parsha”.
In Part 1, we take you into the heart of the Torah portion by reading in English and teaching the in-depth and multi-layered Hebrew readings that permeate the Set-Apart original text. There is also considerable attention given to wider historical sources to substantiate and clarify the text as many long standing controversies and a few popular misconceptions are dealt with in proper chronological order. The first video then closes with an extensive vocabulary and linguistic discussion designed to bring you into the heart of how Torah has been discussed for thousands of years.

Part 2 then picks up with the Haftorah, or selected readings from the great prophets of old such as Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, among many others, to show the careful way in which the original Torah message was discussed and analyzed throughout the entire Biblical period. That discussion then continues of course into the scheduled New Testament portion, where the words of our Savior Y’shua are put back into their first century original Hebraic context, both from Y’shua’s 1st century Hebrew culture and his native Aramaic language, and we close with the weekly “sermon” or “Torah Thought for the Week” to bring this Set-Apart and ancient text back to our modern needs, yearnings to shed light on critical spiritual matters affecting all of us today.

It’s a tour through the Scripture unlike any other on the web so I hope you will join us!


  • Re’eh August 17, 2017 Re'eh

    Isaac and Ishmael. Jacob and Esau. And now, we have I think the next longest rivalry in Scripture: Zion-Moriah vs. Gerizim or, if you prefer Judeans vs. Samaritans. This parsha all the controversies between that last group come to the forefront. What was the original Torah message regarding Mount Gerizim? …

  • Ekev August 10, 2017 Ekev

    We’ve seen the “big picture” over the last few weeks. The 40 year re-cap to the new generation with very selective editing, followed by the reissuing of Ten Commandments 2.0, complete with tweaks for this new generation, followed by the Shema itself. Now here is where we get the details …

  • Vaetchanan August 3, 2017 Vaetchanan

    The Tour Continues with the most foundational concepts Israel ever had: The reissuing of the Ten Commandments with some critical distinctions from what was given in Exodus 20 and the Shema Prayer of Deuteronomy 6. But this parsha also draws heavily from its proximity of the 9th of Av, the …

  • Devarim July 27, 2017 Devarim

    The Farewell Tour Begins! But this tour isn’t about some rock star or other celebrity in our media saturated culture. No, this is a farewell tour of one of the most righteous people who have ever lived–Moshe himself. Enter the extreme urgency of his words because if Israel doesn’t understand …

  • Masei July 20, 2017 Masei

    As the fourth Torah book of Bamidbar (Numbers) ends, we find a curious mixture of old and new, and recapping the past and preparing for the future. We begin with finding a beautiful and deep number code hiding in plain sight and progress to looking at a legal challenge that, …

  • Matot July 13, 2017 Matot

    Welcome to the expanded edition of Matot—these are the tribes. This fascinating look into arcane rules of land inheritance punctuated with a deadly serious war with the nation of Midian offers one of the starkest studies in contrasts of any parsha. Also join me for a special exploration into the …

  • Pinchus July 6, 2017 Pinchus

    This hero Phinehas is so larger than life that the Scripture can be interpreted to mean he was a warrior priest for nearly 400 years (he didn’t but you’ll have to tune in to find out why! Welcome to one of the most action packed parshas of them all, where …

  • Balak with Bonus Teaching June 29, 2017 Balak with Bonus Teaching

    It may be the oddest, and even the most whimsical, parsha of them all. This week we begin with the plotting of Balak, King of Moab. Having assessed the might of Israel, he has concluded outright military victory against them is to o difficult, so he enlists the help of …

  • Chukkat June 22, 2017 Chukkat

    Of all the sacrifices given in such glorious detail in the Torah, the most powerful one of them all is also the most mysterious: the red heifer. The stakes are incredibly high and those ashes could in theory last forever and continue to provide atonement until Yeshua arrives with the …

  • Korah June 15, 2017 Korah

    “Come with me if you want to live.” “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” “Certainty of death! Small chance of success! Well…what are we waiting for?” These lines come from the imagination of Hollywood or what their idea of rebellions and epics look like and they all pale in …

Torah 101

We often call our study process “walking” through Torah, because it is a wonderful journey that takes time and consistent effort, but it always bears great spiritual fruits for those who wish to understand the Scripture.
But not everyone wishes to go about this in the “total immersion” style of Scroll to Scroll, or they are on the go and need a shorter, more basic teaching. If that describes you, then you need “Torah 101”—the concise yet thought provoking journey through each week’s Scripture teachings. In less than half the time of the regular program, Andrew will distill the essence of the actual Torah portion down to its core message and walk you through the same majestic beauty and intricacies between both parts of our Bible. See the Torah, Prophets and the New Testament interconnect in a way you never saw before, and all in under an hour, to enable your “walk” in Scripture to deepen each week!
