Here are Rosh Pina's Torah Study focus questions for this week.
Psalm 79:11-13 Let the groans of the prisoners come before You; according to Your great power, preserve those doomed to die! Return sevenfold into the lap of our neighbors the taunts with which they have taunted You, O Lord! But we Your people, the sheep of Your pasture, will give thanks to You forever; from generation to generation we will recount Your praise.
In the verses above, we see again, we give thanks and give praise from generation to generation. A healthy community, requires generations. In other words, it is multi-generational. One of the greatest responsibilities of the first generation is to make sure they give thanks and praise the Lord. This is true of communities and families.
It likely won't look the same from generation-to-generation. Let us remember we are engaged in a spiritual battle for our (collective and individual) identity in Yeshua. So, let us encourage ourselves in our own identity in Yeshua by making sure we give thanks and praise and that generations that follow us give thanks and praise!
This week's reading demonstrates a transitional phase, even during the plagues, for Israel. One of their first visions for their new land is setting apart the first born.
The focus questions for our Torah study are below:
- What is the transition that is marked just prior to the 8th plague in Exodus 10:1-2?
- How is this transition emphasized in the 8th plague through Exodus 10:20?
- What is significant about the time-frame for the 9th plague in Exodus 10?
- What may be important about the order of instructions from the end of Exodus 10-Exodus 11?
Rosh Pina will be meeting at 10:45am to begin fellowship. You may join us online by going to Google Meet and entering the following code: wqg-wmqb-fcb
