Torah Portion Mishpatim
Exodus 21:1 – 24:18
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 Mishpatim we will discuss the didactic function of Torah and how Yeshua teaches in this manner. We will also discuss how the covenant ceremony in Exodus 24 is used by the author of Hebrews to explain Yeshua’s death and how it brings about the new exodus, the forgiveness of sins!
