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!


  • Vayigash December 12, 2018 Vayigash

    Get ready for “the big reveal” as all of Joseph’s diversions finally come to an end and the reconciling with his brothers can begin. This week Jacob is also brought to Egypt and meets Pharaoh, and we explore the strong possibility that Jacob was actually elevated by Pharaoh to be …

  • Mikkets December 5, 2018 Mikkets

    What started out as a small family misunderstanding has literally become an international incident with the fate of millions hanging in the balance. Joseph is a precocious and arrogant teenager. Betrayed and enslaved by his brothers, Joseph languishes in a prison cell because the wine taster he helped did not …

  • Vayeshev-2018 Hanukkah Special November 27, 2018 Vayeshev-2018 Hanukkah Special

    Now we enter the last great story of Genesis–the Joseph saga–which has always been a personal favorite of ours. This story has it all. Family betrayal, classic mnisunderstandings, illicit carnal relations, and family intrigues of the cruelest kind, only to end with a final betrayal that causes Joseph to get …

  • Vayishlach November 20, 2018 Vayishlach

    One brother seems to control a camp full of heavenly messengers while the other brother brings 400 soldiers to make his point about how he feels. Then brother #1 wrestles (probably) with Y’shua in pre-incarnate form and that’s just the first chapter. Then we move on to the “Greatest Apology …

  • Vayetze November 15, 2018 Vayetze

    If Jacob thought fleeing Esau was tough, he has no idea what awaits him. While Laban allow Jacob to marry his daughters, the price for the one he truly loves is fourteen years of hard work, only to be outmaneuvered again by Laban to force another six years of labor …

  • Toldot November 6, 2018 Toldot

    Here’s a perfect reason why experts say you should not favor one child above the other. In this case, we see that each parent favored a different child, with Isaac favoring Esau while Rebecca favored Jacob, making matters much worse and tragic. This parsha is full of betrayal of the …

  • Chayei Sarah November 1, 2018 Chayei Sarah

    This parsha is literally “bookended” with the passing of two mighty biblical figures. First Sarah dies in the opening line, possibly of a broken heart in the wake of the near loss of her son Isaac at the ends of her husband. But as Abraham settles into a decades long …

  • Vayera October 25, 2018 Vayera

    Father Yah finds a threat is so dangerous, He sends Himself and two messengers down with him to sort it out with Abraham as the lives of five cities lay in the balance. Abraham then finds he has to struggle mightily even to save people he never met but the …

  • Lech Lecha October 18, 2018 Lech Lecha

    Ten generations after Noah, the next great righteous man arises. He begins life as Abram, the exalted father, but in the span of a few chapters of this parsha he will becomes Abraham, the father of many nations. Along the way he will experience enough personal challenges and the odd …

  • Noach October 11, 2018 Noach

    Meet the original “disaster of Biblical proportions”–a flood so massive even Father Yah says it will not be repeated! But the account of Noah’s Flood is so much more than a good example of epic story telling. It is an even so traumatic even the pagans left 600 versions of …

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!

  • Torah 101-Ki-Tavo August 30, 2018 Torah 101-Ki-Tavo

  • Torah 101-Shoftim August 16, 2018 Torah 101-Shoftim

    It’s one thing to be resigned to the fact that you are about to die mere moments after you finish a few speeches, but it is quite another to talk about and graphically describe all the mechanisms and infrastructure that are about to replace you. This is what Moshe does …

  • Torah 101-Re’eh August 9, 2018 Torah 101-Re'eh

    This week Moshe brings clarity on a whole variety of legal and moral issues. Some of these include: What if a prophet tells Israel to follow pagan gods and the miracle he predicts comes true? Why does Israel have to go to total war sometimes killing every living thing in …

  • Torah 101-Ekev August 2, 2018 Torah 101-Ekev

    As Moshe gets into the second of his three final addresses for Israel, he tasks this current generation more intensively than ever to not make the same mistakes their fathers made and rise to heights their fathers never could, as they will enter the land and prosper “if only” they …

  • Torah 101-Va’etchanan July 26, 2018 Torah 101-Va'etchanan

    Now that Moshe has offered his introduction, it’s time to get into the heart of his overall message. This parsha of Va’etchanan gives us so many foundational aspects that go the core of his farewell address. There is an extensive refutation of idolatry that weaves its way throughout the entire …

  • Torah 101-Devarim July 19, 2018 Torah 101-Devarim

    It’s the beginning of the end for Moshe as Israel faces an uncertain future with Joshua. The first of three farewell speeches begins this week, and by the end of this very day Moshe will die. It’s one last chance to Israel to finally get the message or perish in …

  • Torah 101-Pinchus July 5, 2018 Torah 101-Pinchus

    In a time of year where Hollywood overwhelms us with summer blockbusters, it’s time to show the original action hero, a man so brave he saves the lives of an entire nation for all time. The weapon sent against israel was subtle enough that no scanner or device even today …
