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!


  • Bo January 18, 2018 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? …

  • Shemot January 4, 2018 Shemot

  • Vayechi December 28, 2017 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 December 19, 2017 Vayigash

    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 …

  • Mikkets December 14, 2017 Mikkets

    An innocent man languishes in prison for two years for a crime he did not commit. He is only freed because the selfish cupbearer, who broke his word and didn’t speak up for Joseph once he was comfortable, saw an opportunity to help Pharaoh. As Joseph is freed from one …

  • Vayeshev December 7, 2017 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 November 29, 2017 Vayishlach

    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 …

  • Vayetze November 22, 2017 Vayetze

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-Pekudei February 22, 2017 Torah 101-Pekudei

  • Torah 101-Ki Tissa February 10, 2017 Torah 101-Ki Tissa

    It starts out with just an innocent little census, but then all “pagan-gehenna” breaks loose–literally!
