WHY STUDY THE TORAH?
The studies made available on this site are the product of over ten years and countless
hours of deep engagement with the five books of Moses. It is said that “the Torah has 70
faces – turn it around and around for everything is in it.” Simply reading the plain
meaning in translation often raises more questions than it answers—but, just as gold and
precious gems are found deep below the surface of the earth, so too are precious truths
to be found beneath the surface of the Torah. Emanating from the Divine, the Torah is
both universal and personal in nature—its richness and depth are infinite.
These are the very scriptures Yeshua personified and loved. He said, “If you believed
Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me” …and indeed he did.
Understanding the person and redemptive work of Yeshua through the lens of the Torah
opens us to an exciting and faith-building appreciation God’s eternal, unfolding plan of
redemption — it truly is Our Living Torah — God's precious gift to both Jew & Gentile alike.
Whilst these studies are valuable for private study and reflection, they were prepared to be
used in a group setting, where lively engagement with the text and reflective questions, can
take place. You will soon find yourselves developing a new alertness to the sacred text – its
puzzles, layers of meaning, and dynamic interaction with the NT—your faith and
appreciation of all that Christ gained for us will be enlivened, and your Bible studies will
become a banquet table, feeding from God’s eternal Word.
