Torah Portion

Dear Torah Portion Reader...

I am very excited that the Spring Feast is just around the corner! We are now in the final preparation count-down, which for us at Lighted Way Ministries is an "all-hands-on-deck" scenario. In the next few weeks and days, I will be finishing the book "God's Amazing Star Secret" (which I pray to have fresh from the press at Passover, on April 1, 2018), I will be writing the sermons, putting together the children's program, cooking (and freezing) the casseroles to serve during the Retreat week, and more...

In order to accomplish all of this, I will not be taking time to write the Torah portion commentaries during this period of time. However, that does not mean that anyone need to get behind. The following is the Torah reading and study schedule for the next few weeks. As you keep up with this schedule, you will be on track to complete all 613 Statutes this year. So, from now to April 14, the Torah portions will be posted without comment. Commentary and the usual Torah portions will resume on April 15. Thank you for your patience! And happy studying in the meantime :-)

Daily Bible Reading - December 21, 2017

Today's Reading:

Luke 1:1-25

Ezekiel 33

Isaiah 57

Listen to the Bible







Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading   

It may seem strange, at first, to be starting the book of Luke after having just finished Colossians. But the order in which we're completing the Bible reading is intentionally randomized to keep it spicy :-) Don't worry, though, by December 31, we will have read it all, cover to cover.

Just taking a quick pole...

How many of you out there are reading the Bible through this year for the first time? 

How many have read it more than once? 

Some of you may have started late and will only have read the latter portions...  (If that's the case, no worries, we are going do it all over again next year, so you'll get there if you keep participating in this blog.) 

Where are you at in your goal of reading the Bible through? 

Also, what have you gained from what you've read this far? Is there anything that stands out in your mind - perhaps a special gem that you came across that you hadn't noticed before?
