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!


  • Pekudei March 7, 2019 Pekudei

    The Book of Shemot (Exodus) ends on a hopeful note as the long awaited Tabernacle finally rises and Israel take one more important step to permanent nationhood even though they have not (and will not) set foot in Canaan for many more years. Still it is a milestone worth pausing …

  • Ki Tissa February 21, 2019 Ki Tissa

    It’s the ultimate betrayal as Israel rises up to play and sinks to lowest moral depths in their history while they worship the Golden Calf. But what lies beneath the surface, the bad politics and dark agendas, is even worse and now the future of 2 million Israelites hangs in …

  • 2019 Purim Special February 18, 2019 2019 Purim Special

    Welcome to the feast season at long last! Purim is an amazing occasion, that has foreshadowing all the way back to Exodus, solid evidence of Y’shua keeping that feast in his own day and remains important t our times and far beyond. How is this feast related to an ancient …

  • Terumah February 7, 2019 Terumah

    Father Yah is in the details and, in this case, in the sacred math and the sacred geometry. Terumah is about much more than architecture, materials and measurements; it’s about sophisticated math and astronomy, even prophecy. See some of the deepest Messianic patterns ever to come out of the Torah!

  • Mishpatim January 31, 2019 Mishpatim

    Meet the smaller rules that make keeping the Top Ten rules possible, and along the way encounter one of the most stunning visions anyone has ever had in Scripture; a vision that seems to hardly ever get any significant attention.

  • Yitro January 24, 2019 Yitro

    The Ten Commandments are given and the world as we know it changes forever. Come back to Sinai, where no story is too great or too small to appreciate. From Jethro’s visit helping Moshe avoid death by exhaustion and hint at a squabble between him and Tzippora all the way …

  • Be’shalach January 18, 2019 Be'shalach

    The plagues are over. The war though is just beginning, and may have a shockingly short end. Time for Pharaoh to meet his destiny in the Sea of Reeds while the greatest threat to Moshe’s authority and mission continue to lie within the ranks of Israel. Also see the special …

  • Bo January 10, 2019 Bo

    It’s “Bo time” and for the Egyptians that is not a good thing. Seven plagues have devastated that nation for nearly 6 weeks but the worst is yet to come: locusts, darkness and the slaying of the first born of Egypt. Yet Pharaoh is stubborn to the end, even when …

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-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 …
