How well do you know and understand the foundation of all of Scripture? If you want to
have a significant gain in understanding the basis of your faith and glean great understanding of all of Scripture, then endeavor to read and understand the foundation, and this week is a GREAT week to begin! This week is the first week of the annual Torah Cycle.
All of Judaism and most Messianic believers read through the Torah each year on a reading schedule that keeps everyone on the same page for mutual study and sharing. The reading schedule includes significant ties to the Prophets, Gospels and Apostolic writings. So, to help all who wish to join in and gain insight, the schedule is linked below in multiple formats. Remember that we also host Ray Gardner’s Torah Study Notes with 15-40 pages of neat insights into the Hebrew words, prophecy and our Messiah.

LOL. Still planning to answer your previous comment… But was already trying to work on typing out those guides.
While sloshing through the “begats,” I learned that each name is a generation and to better understand them is to look at our own. For instance “Baby Boomers”, GenX, etc. Each one of our own that we recall, has led to a decline in America’s morals – and the same thing occurred during the days of Noah and each name, when one understands what it means, shows that decline. So when we read “as in the days of Noah,” it has much more meaning and we knew why God brought an end to it with the flood, just as He will the next time with fire.

Truly, there is so much depth that 50 times through the portions would not be enough.
Two years ago I studied nothing but ‘light’ in the first portion and learned a TON.
Sounds like you had a great time at Sukkot in Kentucky – Wish I could have gone! Anyway, I was wondering if the Torah schedule you posted was something you put together, or found somewhere. It looks similar to something I saw about 12 years ago or so. We normally use FFOZ’s schedule, but don’t care for their NT portion, as it doesn’t SEEM to do the best job at tieing into the Tanach portions. Consequently, we tend to use the suggested readings from Stearn’s Complete Jewish Bible. The one you posted looks to maybe be a happy medium between the two. Have you used it before, or is the a first run?
Also, in the post that had the reading schedule, you said that the new reading cycle starts this week. Did you mean in two weeks, because I have this Shabbat as the last portion of the current cycle – Vezot ha Bracha? Maybe my schedule is off?
Hope you guys were spared the flooding that our area has experienced. Say hi to the family for me!
That schedule is taken from a Lion and Lamb Messianic Calendar. Like you, I’ve use FFOZ’s little trifold schedule but just can’t stomach their bilateralism anymore. I actually called L&L and asked them to consider a small piece like FFOZ’s.
That schedule is a week different than others I’ve seen but feast days are the same. Tried to account for that…
Lotta rain and a few roof leaks w ceiling damage, but minor considering the plight of others
Well, now I am confused… Just saw someone else post about starting the new schedule this Shabbat. I took another look at the FFOZ schedule and it said October 6 for the date. Since I am seriously date challenged, I thought the 6th was this Saturday. Obviously, today (well, yesterday now) is the 6th. I guess I need to do some checking as to why last portion isn’t on Shabbat. If it is like that every year the I don’t remember noticing that before.
We too had a roof leak during the nonstop rain, although pretty minor. Our house was in no danger of flooding, although many around us had serious problems.
Yeah, last portion here was on Simchat Torah, which fell on the 5/6th, depending on the calendar.
