Go Study Mattot-Massei 5782

RSS | Google Podcasts | Odysee | YouTube

The Almighty knows every step of your journey so far. Study his Word and follow its light so you take the path of promise and avoid the path of ruin.

The ninth and tenth portions of the book of Bamidbar/Numbers are Mattot and Massei, which means “Tribes and Travels.” This is the forty-second and forty-third Torah Portions.

Matot (“Tribes”) opens with laws about vows, and continues to describe the Israelites’ war against the Midianites and the allocation of spoils. The tribes of Reuben and Gad request to dwell outside of the Land of Israel, and Moses acquiesces on the condition that they help conquer it. Masei (“Travels”), the final Torah portion in the Book of Numbers, opens with a list of places that the Israelites traveled in the desert. God commands the Israelites to destroy idolatry in the Land of Israel, outlines Israel’s boundaries, and details the laws of cities of refuge for accidental killers.

In the Haftorah, the prophet Jeremiah pleads with Israel to repent of their idolatry.

In the Apostolic Writings, the Master stresses the limited time you have to repent and bear fruit for the Kingdom.

TORAH: NUMBERS 30:2-36:13

HAFTORAH: JEREMIAH  2:4-28, 4:1-2

APOSTLES: LUKE 13:1-9; MARK 11:12-23
