Torah Portion Lech Lecha
Genesis 12:1 – 17:27
This year we will be going through the Torah portion cycle looking for themes which occur in each Torah portion that recurs throughout the rest of Scripture with a special focus on connecting them to the Apostolic Writings (New Testament).
In Lech Lecha, we will see a continuation of the creation theme, but now with YHWH creating a new man, Abram, by separating him from society. Abram is tasked with the restoration of God’s image to humanity which will find its ultimate fulfillment in Yeshua as Paul writes in Philippians 2:5-11.
