Torah Portion Shemot
Exodus 1:1 – 6:1
This year we will be going through the Torah portion cycle looking for themes which occur in each Torah portion that recurs throughout the rest of Scripture with a special focus on connecting them to the Apostolic Writings (New Testament).
In Shemot, we will look at the connection of this portion to creation and new creation, Israel’s mandate, the importance of names and naming in the Bible, and the legal institution of crying out for justice.
