Reflections on Torah

The first five books of the Bible (Torah) tell the story of the founding of the community of God’s covenant people. During the summer of 2009, I published a series of thirteen short reflections on several passages from those books in the Mennonite Weekly Review. In these reflections I paid special attention to the present-day relevance of these passages.  Here is a list of the articles.

1. Word of Blessing (Exodus 3)

2. God’s Way of Power (Exodus 4)

3. God Liberates (Exodus 5)

4. The Bible’s Great Salvation Story (Exodus 14)

5. Gifts, Expectations (Deuteronomy 5)

6. Reliving Liberation (Deuteronomy 16)

7. Prophetic Priests (Leviticus 8:1-13)

8. Healthy Lives (Leviticus 25:8-21,23-24)

9.Growing Pains (Numbers 11:1-6,10-15)

10. They Weren’t Ready (Numbers 14:1-12)

11. Leaders’ Limitations (Numbers 20:1-13)

12. Faith That Will Last (Deuteronomy 6:1-9, 20-24)

13. God’s Costly Mercy (Deuteronomy 30:1-10)
