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!


  • Va’etchanan July 25, 2019 Va'etchanan

    One of the three last speeches Moshe will give before he dies ends while a second one begins. The “Farewell Tour” keeps rolling forward with Ten Commandments 2.0: The Next Generation, the giving of the Shema Prayer along with many other commandments to make sure “you will prolong your days …

  • Devarim July 19, 2019 Devarim

    Enter the last day of Moshe’s life, where the lives of 2 million people literally hang in the balance by every word he says! It doesn’t get more urgent this!

    Special Music Bonus! Here is the song I talked about in the “Generations” teaching that I wrote in 1979.

  • Matot-Masei July 11, 2019 Matot-Masei

    It’s time for a 40 year recap. As we prepare to enter the last day of Moshe’s life, also known as Deuteronomy, Moshe is taking stock, literally, as his fourth book draws to a close. Legal cases are wrapped up and Moshe’s status with Father YHWH is confirmed as Moshe …

  • Phinehas July 3, 2019 Phinehas

    Pinchus refers to the man whose righteous example of purging evil from Israel’s ranks moved Abba YHWH to stop a plague that would have otherwise destroyed all Israel. More than that, the portion starts with Pinchus getting a particularly high honor from Abba YHWH, the covenant of peace that rests …

  • Balak June 27, 2019 Balak

    A female donkey proves herself more righteous than the prophet Father Yah sent on a special mission. It’s not some kind of sit-com nor is is it a weird off-Broadway play. It’s our parsha this week, Balak, and there is so much more going on that just having that special …

  • Chukkat June 18, 2019 Chukkat

    This is a parsha with a stark study in contrasts. Here the red heifer instructions are given though they had clearly been in place previously and well understood, and it is in this parsha also that both Miriam and Aaron die. The other significant part of Chukkat is that within …

  • Korach June 13, 2019 Korach

    SHOWDOWN! In this corner, Moshe, Yehoshua, Caleb and Aaron, while in the other corner, the “away team” of Korah, Dathan, Abiram, along with a bunch more leaders and the people they lead. In short, pretty much everyone else is in rebellion or knows someone who is. When it’s over nearly …

  • Shelach Lecha June 6, 2019 Shelach Lecha

    We are literally in the calm before the storm, between the end of one rebellion and the commencement of a much worse one on the immediate horizon. Moshe’s challenges ramp up this week as he does not realize that even though Father Yah commands him to send out spies, it’s …

  • Be’halotekha May 28, 2019 Be'halotekha

    What happens when Father Yah deliberately withholds information to see if Israel will care about resolving a contradiction? What happens when, after all that time at Mount Sinai it is suddenly time to head out to an uncertain future? How about the calendar codes inherent in the way they march …

  • Naso May 23, 2019 Naso

    From censuses to the only parsha that deals with marital problems. From the curious rules of the Nazirite to the Aaronic blessing. Naso is a fascinating study in contrasts and scope. And it all culminates with what may be the most thorough (90+ minutes long) and perhaps even most shocking …

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-Balak June 28, 2018 Torah 101-Balak

    This story would be very funny if it wasn’t first and foremost tragic. Balak of Moab is scared of Israel. He can’t overcome them with his army and he tries this week to engage a prophet for hire, Balaam, to curse Israel. Balaam tries repeatedly to to do so and …

  • Torah 101-Chukkat June 21, 2018 Torah 101-Chukkat

    Remember back in Leviticus when it seemed parshas were all detail about sacrifices and architecture and little about conflict and action? Now here is this part of Numbers it seems it is all action–the bad kind–and no pausing at all. Even after miracles and plagues made it clear that Korah …

  • Torah 101 will return next week with “Chukkat”! June 15, 2018

    Torah 101 will return next week with “Chukkat”!

  • Torah 101-Behalotekha June 7, 2018 Torah 101-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 …

  • Torah 101 will return June 7th with “Behalotekha”! May 30, 2018

    Torah 101 will return June 7th with “Behalotekha”!

  • 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 …

  • Torah 101-BaHar-BeChukkotai May 18, 2018 Torah 101-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 …

  • Torah 101-Emor May 10, 2018 Torah 101-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 …

  • Torah 101 will return next week with “Emor”! May 3, 2018

    Torah 101 will return next week with “Emor”!

  • Torah 101-Metzora April 26, 2018 Torah 101-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 …
