Torah Portion Yitro
Exodus 18:1 – 20:26
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 Yitro, we will discuss how Jethro is the first fruits from the nations who praises YHWH. We will also discuss how the commandments of God only have real power when we incorporate them as values into a society where keeping His commands is honorable and violating them is shameful.
