Parashat B’har/B’Chukkotai – Lev. 25:1 – 26:2

Jonathan writes, "Almost the last command in Vayikra as the book draws to an end, this and its companion two verses earlier, cause some confusion to the commentators."

Parashat Acharei Mot – Lev. 16:1 – 18:30

Jonathan writes, "Like the patriarchs, we must always have in mind the eternal city to which we have been called; that alone will endure, while the current age, fashion and culture will pass like the wind."

Parashat Tazria/M’tzorah – Lev. 12:1 – 15:33

Jonathan writes, "Is that what setting ourselves apart to G-d means? Do we, like the nazarites, have to make a vow to be holy for thirty, sixty or ninety days, restarting the count if we mess up and touch or do something sinful?"

Parashat Sh’mini – Lev. 9:1 – 11:47

Jonathan writes, "Notice how similar this is to our text: believers have been redeemed from lawlessness (as were the Israelites from Egypt) so that they might be Yeshua's possession, a people of His own, who are eager to obey Him and do the right thing."

A reading for Pesach

Jonathan writes, "What, then, is the significance of this for today? Simply that before moving on into G-d's future, He asks us to celebrate and acknowledge His past: the things that He has done, both through history and in our own lives."

Parashat Tzav – Lev 6:1(8) – 8:38

Jonathan writes, "But there are times when G-d gives us a vision of what He wants to do and directs us to wait and prepare so that we are ready when He has worked everything into a straight line."

Parashat Vayikra – Lev. 1:1 – 5:26(6:7)

Jonathan writes, "But these are specifics, particular things that we mustn't do - what about the general case? Do we always have to be so careful about sin? Surely, Yeshua's forgiveness means that sin doesn't matter any more, provided we don't deliberately go out and sin?"

Parashat Vayakhel/Pekudei – Ex. 35:1 – 40:38

Jonathan writes, "Anointing declares something to be set apart for G-d, to become holy and consecrated. And that anointing, that holiness, is meant to be contagious."

Parashat Ki Tissa – Ex. 30:11 – 34:35

Jonathan writes, "What, then, lies across the faces of the thousands of men and women in this country and around the world who cannot see Yeshua? What is it that stops them from seeing what seems so obvious to us?"

Parashat Tetzaveh – Ex. 27:20 – 30:10

Jonathan writes, "We have a duty of care too for others, particularly within the family of faith. As we have received this word, we need to share it with others so that they too can understand and come into alignment with what G-d desires of us in this day."
