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!


  • 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 …

  • Va’Era January 3, 2019 Va'Era

    The warnings are done and the proverbial gloves are off. Now it’s time for Father Yah to show Pharaoh who’s really Boss. Get ready for a wild ride with lots of bonus features! Enjoy!

     

  • Shemot December 26, 2018 Shemot

    The tribes of Israel have been harried and persecuted by the greatest human-based empire on the planet. Desperate, they cry out for a savior to come to them with miracles and save them from slavery and despair. But this isn’t the story of Y’shua–it’s the start of the story of …

  • Vayechi December 19, 2018 Vayechi

    The climax of the entire book of Genesis comes down to this. Jacob is finally well settled in Goshen and dies peacefully while Joseph and his brothers continue their efforts to honor their father’s legacy and reconcile everything for all time. But looming large in the prophetic distance is a …

  • Vayigash December 12, 2018 Vayigash

    Get ready for “the big reveal” as all of Joseph’s diversions finally come to an end and the reconciling with his brothers can begin. This week Jacob is also brought to Egypt and meets Pharaoh, and we explore the strong possibility that Jacob was actually elevated by Pharaoh to be …

  • 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 …

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-Ki Teze August 31, 2017 Torah 101-Ki Teze

    Welcome to the Rules of War. In this parsha, Moshe lays out how the Israelites can fight a kosher war, including regulations of captive women that were the most generous in the ancient world at that time. In fact the rights of women in a variety of situations are guaranteed …

    Torah 101 will return next week with Ki-Teze!

  • Torah 101-Re’eh August 17, 2017 Torah 101-Re'eh

    Isaac and Ishmael. Jacob and Esau. And now, we have I think the next longest rivalry in Scripture: Zion-Moriah vs. Gerizim or, if you prefer Judeans vs. Samaritans. This parsha all the controversies between that last group come to the forefront. What was the original Torah message regarding Mount Gerizim? …

  • Torah 101-Ekev August 10, 2017 Torah 101-Ekev

    We’ve seen the “big picture” over the last few weeks. The 40 year re-cap to the new generation with very selective editing, followed by the reissuing of Ten Commandments 2.0, complete with tweaks for this new generation, followed by the Shema itself. Now here is where we get the details …

  • Torah 101 will return next week (8/11) for Ekev! August 3, 2017

  • Torah 101-Devarim July 28, 2017 Torah 101-Devarim

    The Farewell Tour Begins! But this tour isn’t about some rock star or other celebrity in our media saturated culture. No, this is a farewell tour of one of the most righteous people who have ever lived–Moshe himself. Enter the extreme urgency of his words because if Israel doesn’t understand …

  • Torah 101-Matot-Masei Double Parsha July 13, 2017 Torah 101-Matot-Masei Double Parsha

    Welcome to the expanded edition of Matot—these are the tribes. This fascinating look into arcane rules of land inheritance punctuated with a deadly serious war with the nation of Midian offers one of the starkest studies in contrasts of any parsha. Also join me for a special exploration into the …

  • Torah 101-Pinchus July 6, 2017 Torah 101-Pinchus

    This hero Phinehas is so larger than life that the Scripture can be interpreted to mean he was a warrior priest for nearly 400 years (he didn’t but you’ll have to tune in to find out why! Welcome to one of the most action packed parshas of them all, where …

  • Torah 101-Balak June 29, 2017 Torah 101-Balak

    It may be the oddest, and even the most whimsical, parsha of them all. This week we begin with the plotting of Balak, King of Moab. Having assessed the might of Israel, he has concluded outright military victory against them is to o difficult, so he enlists the help of …

  • Torah 101-Chukkat June 22, 2017 Torah 101-Chukkat

    Of all the sacrifices given in such glorious detail in the Torah, the most powerful one of them all is also the most mysterious: the red heifer. The stakes are incredibly high and those ashes could in theory last forever and continue to provide atonement until Yeshua arrives with the …
