So, with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied either the Torah portion of Acharei Mot-אַחֲרֵי מוֹת.  , from a Jewish/Hebrew mode of study for those out in the diaspora, living outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  Also, on the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar of the 5774 year, this Sabbath day would probably be accounted for on the 11th-יא, & the 12th-יב, of the month of Nisan/Abib-נִיסָן.  (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon)From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as KeMotu BeKH’walla-ከሞቱ በኋላ, on the 3rd-፫, & the 4th-፬, of the month(ወር) of Miyazya-ሚያዝያ.  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Readings:

Leviticus 16:1- 18:30

Ezekiel 22:1-19

Hebrews 9:11-28

In this portion of the study of the Scriptures, after the death Aaron’s two sons (Nadab & Abihu), Moses is instructed by God to teach the children of Israel his ways for properly conducting themselves for the service of the Tabernacle.

This portion of the Scriptures deals with the rituals which have become what is known today as Yom Kippur(the Day of Atonement); Ethiopically known as “Astesryo Q’en” among the Hebrew/Judaic faithful.  When Moses receives the laws and instruction for the practices to be conducted, he is instructed to “cast lots” upon two goats, for the children of Israel. One “lot” is to be cast for an offering to God & the other for a “scapegoat.”

[Lev. 16: 7-10]

The one goat that was be presented before God, for a sin offering.  The other goat was to be left alive, presented to God for an atonement & set free into the wilderness carrying the sins of the children of Israel away from the camp.  This ritual along with the other practices of the offerings/sacrifice were to be done in the Tabernacle(Mishkan), especially as a statute for Israel on the 10th day of the 7th(Tishreiתִּשְׁרִי) month.

[Lev. 16:29]

acharei mot - parsha [azazel-scapegoat]

other commandments, laws, and statutes were given to the children of Israel to follow to keep themselves set apart from the other people they might find themselves around.

[Lev.18]

  1. Greetings Lidj Yefdi,
    InI appear to be missing the final portions / sections of your blogs? Please correct I if InI is wrong, when InI look back through your Torah portion blogs, nearly all the last parts are replaced by 4 little adverts?

    Yahh shalowm and blessings, Wendim Arron.
