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!


  • Special Notice regarding Bereshit! October 7, 2020

    Please Note: The Bereshit Torah parsha will be up and available just before sunset on Friday October 9th in the Eastern United States!

  • Ve-Zot Ha-Berachah October 7, 2020Ve-Zot Ha-Berachah

    “Ve-Zot Ha-Barachah” means “the blessing of the tribes” and that is exactly what this last part of Deuteronomy is all about. Much like how Jacob did this for his sons at the end of Genesis, so here does Moshe bless all of his people. The difference this time out however …

  • Ve-Zot Ha-Barachah (Audio Portion) October 7, 2020Ve-Zot Ha-Barachah (Audio Portion)

    “Ve-Zot Ha-Barachah” means “the blessing of the tribes” and that is exactly what this last part of Deuteronomy is all about. Much like how Jacob did this for his sons at the end of Genesis, so here does Moshe bless all of his people. The difference this time out however …

  • Ha’azinu Parsha and 2020 Yom Kippur Special! September 22, 2020Ha'azinu Parsha and 2020 Yom Kippur Special!

    Ha’azinu means “give your ears” or “listen.”  It is the opening stanza of Moshe’s last song that he spoke of at the end of the previous portion.  Although the language is poetic, the graphic imagery is meant for easy remembrance and its warnings are definitely LITERAL.  There is no other …

  • Vayelech with Shabbat Shuvah Readings and the 2020 Yom Teruah Special! September 15, 2020Vayelech with Shabbat Shuvah Readings and the 2020 Yom Teruah Special!

    Vayelech means, “and he went out/walked” referring of course to Moshe. The portion begins in a time of transition, where Joshua is brought forward as the next leader and final instructions to Israel are given. The portion ends with Moshe recording the words to a song, but those …

  • Nitzavim September 8, 2020Nitzavim

    Nitzavim means “you stand” and it begins with more warnings for the price of disobedience. This is literally the beginning of the end of Israelite wandering and Moshe’s own life, so it is critical that every opportunity be taken to explain Israel’s responsibilities to them. This is an abnormally short …

  • Ki Tavo September 1, 2020Ki Tavo

    Ki Tavo means “when you enter” and begins with a variety of agricultural regulations that take effect once Israel has entered Canaan. Other regulations, such as that of tithing, are further instituted in the 26th chapter. 26 also contains a veiled rebuke from Moshe to the previous generation as he …

  • Ki Teze August 25, 2020Ki Teze

    Ki Teze means “when you go out” as in terms of when Israel confronts her enemies on the battle field. One main war regulation is given at the start, and that is what to do with a woman taken captive from the nations that a Jewish man wants to make …

  • Shoftim August 18, 2020Shoftim

    Shoftim means “judges” and Deuteronomy 16:18 begins with the command to appoint them. The Torah had suggested that these courts had to be established to resolve general disputes (Exodus 21:22, 22:8) but only here do we find the specific command to set these courts up in every city, probably because …

  • Re’eh August 12, 2020Re'eh

    Re’eh means “see,” and it begins with that great summary of the covenant: I set aside two ways for you, blessing and cursing, life and death. Shortly afterwards, a number of regulations about the place for Abba YHWH’s Name—Jerusalem though no one other than Abba YHWH knows that yet—are given. …

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-Noach September 29, 2016Torah 101-Noach

    In a world where phrases like “disasters of Biblical proportions” have become cliche’, the real deal doesn’t get any bigger than this global flood. But this “titanic” parsha is far more than a disaster tale. It actually contains deep insights, astronomical calendar codes more advanced than anything used today and …

  • Torah 101 will return after Feast season (September 28th!) August 25, 2016

  • Torah 101-Ki Tavo August 18, 2016Torah 101-Ki Tavo

    Finalizing the Covenant…now the full weight of Israel’s responsibilities to Father Yah–the blessings for obedience and the curses for disobedience–is laid out in graphic detail. Promises are made and oaths are given in the name of the Torah, and these are literally a matter of life and death.

    Please Note To …

  • Torah 101-Ki Teze August 12, 2016Torah 101-Ki Teze

     

    This week we show more than three dozen amazing parallels between Moshe and Y’shua! No doubt you know some of them, but I think quite a few may prove very surprising! We also have a special update on a book that I have been writing that I am eager to …

  • Torah 101-Shofetim August 5, 2016Torah 101-Shofetim

     

    It’s “Judgment Day” Torah style, where Moshe guides Israel in setting up the last of the infrastructure of elder judges. Although first outlined by Jethro 40 years earlier in Exodus 18, it is in this part of Deuteronomy where the actual courts are finally planned for the way they will …

  • Torah 101-Re’eh July 28, 2016Torah 101-Re'eh

    It’s time for Moshe to lay it on the line with this new generation. Passionately and methodically, the man of Elohim lays out the “nitty gritty” of the contract between Israel and Father Yah, with amazing blessings for obedience and horrific curses for disobedience. The lives of 2 million people …

  • Torah 101-Ekev July 22, 2016Torah 101-Ekev

    Please Note For some reason the Vimeo videos recorded at a lower volume than my video files on my computer. I have been able to also post to Youtube and the volume playback is better, as are the AUDIO files. Sorry for any inconvenience, but I am confident one …

  • Torah 101-Vaetchanan July 15, 2016Torah 101-Vaetchanan

    Moshe makes his case! In this parsha we see Moshe deliver the most critical aspects of his message–the foundational Ten Commandments are given once more and one of the oldest prayers in the world, the Shema, is said for the first time. And yet, as great as these events are, …

  • Torah 101-Balak June 15, 2016Torah 101-Balak

    Torah101-Balak2016

    330.9 KB

    In a tale that is equal parts comic and tragic, a gifted prophet of YHWH learns a very hard lesson about how righteousness is a critical component of properly using the prophetic gift! It turns out his own donkey has more spiritual understanding than he does!
