About these articles and their writers
The centrality of the Messiah in the Bible forms the basis for this articles in this website. They looks for prophecies of Messiah’s coming, hints of what his character will be like, what kinds of things he will do, even things that will characterize the messianic age. Since Messiah is the one through whom God brings his salvation to the world, the discussions in these articles also consider aspects of God’s salvation program as they are revealed in the Torah.
The material in this website is limited to the Torah as it is divided into weekly portions, the prophetic readings that accompany those weekly readings, and New Testament passages that shed light on the discussions and show how Jesus has fulfilled the expectations of the Torah and the Prophets.
These articles are intended for those who read the parasha each week and are looking for help understanding it. It is hoped that these will also be a tool for those who engage in conversation with those who do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel. In addition to the focus on the Messiah and God’s salvation, occasionally we have included inspirational or challenging subjects arising from the parashot.
Many people have contributed the material found here. They include believers from Israel and outside Israel.
