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!


  • 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 …

  • Bereshit October 4, 2018 Bereshit

    Welcome to the beginning all over again. First the Universe is made, then the first humans. Join us as more than sixteen centuries of time passes in early human history. And we also have some new changes and other surprises to announce as well. Enjoy!

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-Tazria April 19, 2018 Torah 101-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 …

  • Torah 101-Shemini April 13, 2018 Torah 101-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 …

  • Torah101-Tzav April 5, 2018 Torah101-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-Vayikra March 22, 2018 Torah 101-Vayikra

    As the third book of Moshe opens, we are right back where we were at the end of Exodus. The Tabernacle is being erected and the detailed instructions for establishing the priesthood are being given. But there is so much else going on in this parsha than details on how …

  • Torah 101-Pekudei March 15, 2018 Torah 101-Pekudei

    Now the book of Exodus (Shemot) wraps up with some of its most amazing secrets, but they don’t reveal themselves easily. How is the approach of this parsha sending a strong message of integrity that echoes straight into our daily headlines? How does Aaron anticipate the end of King David’s …

  • Torah 101-Vayakhel March 9, 2018 Torah 101-Vayakhel

    They are the most mysterious and most fascinating objects ever built by the hand of man, and three and a half millennia later their blueprints survive in exacting detail and the history remains as powerful and fresh as when these events first happened. To explore the translation issues and versions …

  • Torah 101-Tetzaveh February 22, 2018 Torah 101-Tetzaveh

    They say the best secrets are the ones that hide in plain sight. The ones in this parsha are no exception, as the most visible and prominent member of the Israelite community–the high priest–literally hides a universe worth of secrets both on and under his own clothes. The fabrics, the …

  • Torah 101-Terumah February 15, 2018 Torah 101-Terumah

    It is literally the blueprint of the Universe itself. This is the parsha where we are told repeatedly “See that you make everything according to the pattern you saw on the mountain”. So every cubit, every talent of gold, every structure large or small is representing on earth what is …
