The Torah (the first 5 books of Scripture: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) are the very words of YHVH Elohim as revealed to the children of Israel and written down by Moses. It forms the foundation for the rest of the Bible. In pre-apostolic times, the Jews divided the Torah into weekly portions called a parashiot (singular, parashah). There are 54 of these Torah portions read during a leap year, which has 13 months. During a 12-month year, the smaller Parshiot are doubled up so that there are 50 portions read.
Typically the entire Torah is read in one year, ending at the biblical fall Feast of Tabernacles (in Hebrew, Sukkot). After Sukkot, the Torah cycle starts over again with Genesis 1.
Torah Explorers is perhaps the only study guide of its kind in the English language that’s available for free and that’s gospel oriented. It’s specifically written for pre-teens and teens, but is highly recommended for anyone (including) adults who want to explore the pro-Torah Hebrew-Jewish roots of the Christian faith.
Torah Explorers is also unique in that it was written by a pastor and Torah teacher who as a follower of Yeshua (Jesus) himself started walking in the Torah as a young child, and has continued to do so more than 50 years later.
The author of Torah Explorers developed this teaching tool for his own four children and those of the congregations he and his wife shepherd. We hope that Torah Explorers will help to ground all those who read and study it in the full counsel of Elohim’s Word (from Genesis to Revelation), and help them to establish a foundation for a righteous lifestyle, and point them to a life-giving and intimate relationship with Elohim through his Son, Yeshua the Messiah, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Torah Explorers is not only an instructive commentary on the Torah, but it is also an interactive and thought-provoking study guide with questions and Scriptures to look up to find the answers. It is ideal tool for individuals and groups. We recommend that the readers keep a special notebook wherein they keep their Torah Explorers printouts along with their notes and answers to the questions.
Torah Explorers everyone how to study the Bible while at the same time washing them spiritually with the water of Elohim’s Word (Eph 5:26). It is our goal to help raise up the younger generation to be obedient to the Torah commandments of YHVH and to be followers of the Yeshua—the identifying characteristics of the end time saints (Rev 12:17; 14:12).
