Bereshit — Genesis: The Foundations of Covenant (The Briteinu Torah Commentary)

We are very happy to announce that TRI’s newly updated and revised Volume 1 Bereshit | Genesis of The Briteinu Torah Commentary is now available on Amazon!

This commentary is an exposition of the 5 books of Moses from the perspective of a Jewish believer in Yeshua utilizing Jewish as well as evangelical sources and emphasizing the Torah in its original historical, linguistic, and religious context. The commentary is based on the traditional Jewish weekly Torah portions.

Briteinu, a Hebrew word meaning, “Our Covenant,” is a commentary set in five volumes on each of the five books of Moses, which is called, “Torah.” This commentary is unique for two reasons. First, it connects each of the five books of Torah by a common theme: covenant. We will see that each book of the Torah emphasizes a certain aspect of the covenant relationship believers have with God.

This volume, Bereshit, focuses on the first book of the Torah, Genesis. As its name implies, it describes for us the beginning of everything. Hence, in Bereshit, we shall emphasize the foundations for all covenant relationships.

Studies in the Book of Joshua 

Studies in the Book of Joshua describes God’s covenants in action among the ancient Israelites.

God relates to His people within a covenant relationship. It is brought up repeatedly throughout the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. It is in understanding the nature of the covenant He has made with His people, that we then understand the nature of His relationship with His people.

In this personal study booklet, Studying Joshua, we are afforded an opportunity to see God’s covenants in action among the ancient Israelites. We will study how Israel was granted the right to claim the Promised Land, because it was the Land promised to them by the Holy One through a covenant promise. We will catch a glimpse of how Israel experienced the joy of living in their promised inheritance. All of this involves the interaction between the two major covenants that the Holy One made with His chosen ones, the Covenant of Abraham and the Covenant of Torah.

Travel with us as we accompany Joshua and the Israelites in their conquest of this Land of their covenantal inheritance and we will see first hand how these two important and sacred covenants determine the life of God’s people in the Land, as we see the covenants in action.

A Week in the Life of the Lamb   

This booklet presents a fictional character, Ya’akov, as he journeyed through this historically exceptional Passover week as any Jewish pilgrim from Galilee might. The Spirit of God opens Ya’akov’s eyes to the significance of the Lamb of God as He does and has done for countless others. For Ya’akov, the atoning death of the Messiah was confirmed by His victorious resurrection.

Reading and sharing the perspective given in this account will open many people’s eyes to the necessity of understanding the historical and Hebraic backgrounds of Yeshua and his followers during His ministry here on earth.
