Shoftim "Judges" | שופטיםz
Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9

Portion Summary:
The commandment for the king to write a copy of the Torah demonstrates the work of Messiah. He Himself is the Word made flesh. He is the copy of the Torah in human form. Furthermore, He writes a copy of the Torah as He writes the Torah upon our hearts. The Torah of King Messiah is written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts (2 Corinthians 3:3).

Isaiah 51:12-52:12
B'rit Hadashah:
John 14:9-20

14 September 2019 / 14 Elul 5779

Ki Tetze "When You Go Forth" | כי תצאDeuteronomy 21:10-25:19

Portion Summary:
Rabbi Meir said, There is a parable about this matter. To what can it be compared? It can be compared to two identical twin brothers. Both lived in a certain city. One was appointed king, and the other became a bandit. At the king's command they hanged the bandit. But everyone who saw him hanging there said, The king has been hung! Therefore the king issued a command and he was taken down. (b.Sanhedrin 46b)

Isaiah 54:1-10
B'rit Hadashah:
Matthew 24:29-42

Ki Tavo "When You Come In" |כי תבוא
Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8

Portion Summary:
Deuteronomy 26 begins the fiftieth reading from the Torah with the words, "Then it shall be, when you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance" (26:1). In Hebrew, the words for "when you enter" are ki tavo. This Torah portion begins with laws regarding first fruits and tithes. It goes on to discuss covenant renewal, after which Moses recites the blessings guaranteed to Israel for covenant obedience and warns of the curses for apostasy.

Haftarah: Isaiah 60:1-22
B'rit Hadashah: Matthew 4:13-24

28 September / 28 Elul 5779

Nitzavim "Standing" |נצבים
Deuteronomy 29:9-30:20

Portion Summary:
The name of the fifty-first reading from the Torah is Nitzavim, which means "standing." The name is derived from the first verse of the portion in which Moses says, "You stand (nitzavim) today, all of you, before the LORD your God" (Deuteronomy 29:10). In this portion, Moses invites the entire assembly of Israel to take on the covenant. He warns them that if they sin, they will go into exile, but he also predicts that, in the future, they will repent and God will return them to the land of Israel. In some years, Nitzavim is read together with the subsequent Torah portion, Vayelech, on the same Sabbath.

Haftarah: Isaiah 61:10-63:9
B'rit Hadashah: John 12:41-50
