Torah Portion Tsav
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 Tsav, we look at the instructions for how the priests receive compensation for their work; through the animal hide and animal meat. This becomes a principle for understanding the discussion of compensation for teachers, elders, and apostles in the Apostolic Writings.
Note: I was only able to do a brief summary of the sacrifices due to time constraints. If you would like to further information, please watch my series Restoring Honor, Removing Shame According to the Temple Service
