Here are two huge resources that will enrich your understanding of Scripture.
The foundation is everything, whether construction or a good movie, starting in the middle of either without a proper foundation leads to bad results… Even Yeshua said the house must be built on a solid rock, not sand. Notice, He is speaking of lawfulness versus lawlessness….
Scripturally, the first five books form a foundation that must be understood, else everything that follows can be misunderstood and twisted (according to Peter). One fabulous resource offered here is the weekly Torah Portion notes as we study through the foundational first five books. Each week Ray Gardner’s study notes as well as Hebrew word Insights by Ephraim and Rimona Frank are posted for free. Download. Print. Share. Access online. etc… These are a HUGE resource. Ray’s Notes alone are $100 for the whole set….
A second resource that I HIGHLY recommend for any who have never seen it, is the teaching by 119 Ministries titled ‘The Lost Sheep.’ You may think you know what that phrase meant, but I have a seminary education and that video, about 90 minutes long, gave me a better overview of Scripture than any course I took and paid hundreds of dollars for. Seriously, you will not invest a better 90 minutes in your Bible study than this video. You will have a better understanding of the overarching story of Scripture than most pastors after watching that… Seriously.
So, enjoy those resources. This week’s notes are up!!
