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!

  • Vayikra March 9, 2022Vayikra

    “Vayikra” means “and he called” and seems focused on the details about the various offerings and sacrifices that are needed for and by the priests of Aaron. I say “seems focused” because there are a lot of deep spiritual realities laying beneath the surface when we delve into the meanings …

  • Pekudei March 2, 2022Pekudei

    “Pekudei” means “these are the records/expenses” and the portion opens with giving the pricing values for the materials that will be used in the Tabernacle. Many exacting physical (and spiritual) details are given for all the wondrous objects and the Tabernacle. But after all these long lists (from this portion …

  • Vayachel February 23, 2022Vayachel

    “Vayakhel” means “and he assembled.” The verb is derived from KAHAL, Hebrew for “assembly, congregation.” After a brief sermon on the importance of Shabbat, Moshe then gets the Israelites to work on the manifold details of building the Tabernacle and related furniture and objects.

  • Ki Tissa February 17, 2022Ki Tissa

    Ki-Tissa means “when you take,” referring to what Israel is to do when it takes a census of all the people. Most censuses in the ancient world are used for the purposes of taxation. This census is no different, except the “tax” is not for an emperor, but for YHWH’s …

  • Tetzaveh February 9, 2022Tetzaveh

    “Tetzaveh” means “you will charge/command,” which opens with requirements for worship that are so important that failure to comply is simply not an option. If these needs are not met, nothing good will ever come about from that nation of Israel. We then get a lot of details about the …

  • Terumah February 2, 2022Terumah

    Terumah means “the contributions” concerns a list of the offerings Israel gives to help build the Tabernacle in the wilderness as well as detailed instructions for building the Arkof the Covenant and other “divine furniture.”

  • Mishpatim January 27, 2022Mishpatim

    “The Judgments” concerns a list of rules and regulations that Abba YHWH is giving to
    Israel. They involve practical examples from the root commands given at Sinai.
    However, there is much more going on here than a mere laundry list of obligations.
    Sandwiched between these rules are some of the most powerful insights …

  • Yitro January 19, 2022Yitro

    It’s the behind the scenes story behind one of the most important events in biblical history. The world knows about how Father YHWH gave to Moshe the Ten Commandments, but less well-known is that without the wise counsel of his father-in-law Jethro we would never even get to the this …

  • Be’shalach January 13, 2022Be'shalach

    It may be the most iconic biblical image and miracle ever: The parting of the Sea of Reeds. And yet, as impressive as that moment was, it is not enough to inspire long-term loyalty of Israel to Father Yah or to Moshe! Still, at least for a moment, the awe …

  • Bo January 6, 2022Bo

    “Bo” means “go,” and that’s exactly what the Israelites do! After the last three plagues of locusts, darkness and killing the first born of Egypt do their damage, Pharaoh at last relents and lets Israel go. In the stunning aftermath of these events, the Pesach meal is instituted as an …

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, 2018Torah 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, 2018Torah 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, 2018Torah 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

  • 2018 Shavuot Special! May 25, 20182018 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, 2018Torah 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, 2018Torah 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, 2018Torah 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 …
