Beha’alotecha – בהעלתך
June 18, 2022
Numbers 8:1-12:16; Zechariah 2:10-4:7; Hebrews 3:1-6; 4:1-16
Torah Portion “בהעלתך/Beha’alotecha” which means “When you Kindle,” begins, “1 Adonai said to Moshe, 2 ‘Tell Aharon, “When you set up the lamps, the seven lamps are to cast their light forward, in front of the menorah.”’” (CJB)
In his teaching today, Ro’eh covered a lot of material that was gleaned from just the verses found in Numbers 10:28-30. He revealed similarities between the stories of Yitro (Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law) and Ruth. We also learned the importance of the order and positions of the tribes when moving from one site to the next, and why it is important to stop comparing our present circumstances to our past, and to stop complaining about it. How is complaining like hatred, and what is the opposite of complaining? We also learn the mussar (character trait) that is found in this portion, that of humility (anavah in Hebrew). Scripture says that Moses was the “most humble man on earth.” What does it mean to be humble, and how can we begin to emulate the humility of Moses as well as that of our Messiah, Yeshua?
This week Brother Mark delivers our Haftorah teaching from Zechariah 2:10-4:7 and the New Covenant E-drash out of Hebrews 3:1-6 is brought by Ro’eh Richard.
The video above contains the entirety of our service day, beginning with our Blessings and Worship portions.
