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!


  • Behalotekha June 7, 2018 Behalotekha

    For two years Israel has been sheltered under the safe haven of Mount Sinai, but now its time to hit the road. And, with a new journey of course come new dangers. But before they can walk one step the priests clearly need a refresher course to avoid more people …

  • Bamidbar-Naso May 31, 2018 Bamidbar-Naso

    “it’s all in the math”–that is, until its not. Here in a special double parsha of the first two parts of Numbers, we find that the math leads to some very unexpected places, including times when the numbers seem to not add up only to find that they actually do …

  • 2018 Shavuot Special! May 25, 2018 2018 Shavuot Special!

    Welcome to the Great Feast that has more names and prophetic-Scriptural applications than any other. Shavuot has gone from a harvest festival where some of the most important events of the patriarchs happened centuries before Moshe was born, to the day the Ten Commandments were given to the “birthday” of …

  • BaHar-BeChukkotai May 17, 2018 BaHar-BeChukkotai

    Calendar controversies? Challenges in recovering precise years of historical events that the whole nation agrees on? Not this time. If ever there was proof that ancient Israel could not function without unanimity on when their events happened and the timing of the Feasts, it is in this parsha. Learn all …

  • Emor May 10, 2018 Emor

    It’s been several months since the deaths of Nadab and Abihu, since the nation of Israel and her priesthood teetered on the brink of extinction. But Father Yah has deliberated and decided they all will continue, but the priests and the people they serve must get serious about keeping the …

  • Aharei Mot-Kedoshim Double Portion! May 3, 2018 Aharei Mot-Kedoshim Double Portion!

    They don’t have money or power, but what they do have is “a particular set of skills”. And they better use those skills to perfection because already they lost nearly half of their number and now, if these few who are left mess up too, they die and a nation …

  • Metzora April 26, 2018 Metzora

    It’s just a skin disease; a medical condition like any other. Or is it? Even the sages cannot decide this seemingly simple question. Is leprosy divine judgment for a moral failure or just another kind of defilement that happens in the course of normal living? Can it be equated to …

  • Tazria April 19, 2018 Tazria

    Tazria. One chapter gives us intimate details about what Messiah’s earthly parents will go through bringing him into the world. The other chapter reveals the true reasons why Messiah kept saying to those he healed of leprosy “Go and show yourselves to the priests”. Messiah is in fact all over …

  • Shemini April 12, 2018 Shemini

    It’s five priests for more than 2 million Israelites. That is, until it’s down to only three because Nadav and Avihu die for their rebellion against Father Yah. Even more socking, neither their father Aaron nor their brothers are allowed to bury them, because then the whole priesthood is at …

  • Tzav April 5, 2018 Tzav

    Welcome to the ordination of the priests, where one mistake can cost you your life and put a nation of more than 2 million in jeopardy. But Tzav is about far more than just a series of regulations regarding purity and sacrifices. It reaches deep into the secrets of time …

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-Yitro February 1, 2018 Torah 101-Yitro

    Shalom all. Sorry but I am unable to do the parsha this week due to contracting influenza (type A flu) which has been going around lately. I have therefore reissuing 2017’s posts for Yitro and Yah willing will be back next week with “Mishpatim”. I am currently taking medication …

  • Torah 101-Beshalach January 26, 2018 Torah 101-Beshalach

    “And Elohim led Israel out with a mighty hand and with signs and wonders”. Nowhere are the words more true than this week, as Pharaoh’s entire army id destroyed in the Sea of Reeds. It’s the greatest chariot force to be destroyed by Israel—that is, until our Haftorah Portion in …

  • Torah 101-Bo January 19, 2018 Torah 101-Bo

    The picture above is a montage of Amenhotep II, whom I believe is the Pharaoh of Exodus. Just look at this guy…especially the shot of him on his own war chariot, and ask yourself: Does he not look the part of the adversary Moshe describes in this section of Exodus? …

  • Torah 101 will return with ‘Bo’! January 12, 2018

  • Torah 101-Shemot January 4, 2018 Torah 101-Shemot

    Joseph is gone and also, apparently forgotten, at least by the Egyptians. Now dark times fall on the Hebrews of Goshen as they go from valued partners to hated enemies and from the pinnacle of power in Egypt to the lowest of the low, slaves who can’t even get straw …

  • Torah 101-Vayechi December 29, 2017 Torah 101-Vayechi

    The title says it all–vayechi–“and he lived”. But this is not just true of Jacob spending his last 17 years in Egypt but really of the entire generation of two nations that lives because of Joseph. Jacob’s preparations to leave this earth, as well as those of his son’s Joseph …

  • Vayigash (Torah 101) December 22, 2017 Vayigash (Torah 101)

    After 22 years, grieving father and son are finally reunited this week, and it literally could not be closer to being too late. Jacob, long weakened by the loss of Joseph, has barely been hanging on for more than two decades. And Joseph has already gone through enough false imprisonments …

  • Torah 101-Vayeshev December 7, 2017 Torah 101-Vayeshev

    As they always seem to say this time of year, “Nothing like being home with the family”–except of course if that family is planning to murder you, dispose of your body in a pit and lie to Dad for 22 years about what really happened. Then they tamper with physical …

  • Vayishlach (Torah 101) November 29, 2017 Vayishlach (Torah 101)

    In the opening lines we find that Jacob may have the power to command, or at the very least persuade, heavenly messengers to do his will. Then, before we can even catch our breath, we find that Esau is coming to his little family reunion with 400 friends and yet …
