Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

RRR - prototype (2015-16)

I welcome you all to a new regenartion of cycle Torah readings!  This is another one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

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, have come to the opening of the Torah portion with Ki-Tis(sh)a – כִּי תִשָּׂא.  On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5776, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 17th – יז, & on the 18thיח, of the month Adar – אֲדָר, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2007/2027/7507, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2007/2027/7507, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the 19th – ፲፱, & on the 20th – ፳, on the (ወርኀ) month of የካቲት (Yekateet).  In the Scriptures, what is also known as BeQʷäT’ärháchäw Gizey – በቈጠርሃችው ጊዜ

. On the Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) 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:

Exodus 30: 11 – 34:35

I Kings 18: 1-39

II Corinthians 3: 1-18

In this portion of the study of the Scriptures, the men of the children of Israel were to make Atonement for them, and their families.  So, in turn, the atonement that was made by the men of the families could’ve been compared to a sort of census; taking an account for the children of Israel. A half-shekel of silver, was what was known to be used to donate to the sanctuary of Israel.

Exod. 30: 11-16

Exod. 30: 11-16

The finest of spices and of oils, and these were to be taken for an anointing, of the Priesthood. Then the Tabernacle was to be anointed, the Ark of the Covenant, along with all that was in the sanctuary. The Sabbath was to be continually kept, for how the anointing, sanctified the Tabernacle; the Sabbath sanctified them to God.

ki tissa- parsha (anointing the priesthood)

More instruction for the construction of the fixings of the Tabernacle were run down to Moses in the portion of the Scriptures.

Tabernacle Israelites Built(illustration from 1897 Bible Pictures and What They Teach Us by Charles Foster)

The bronze water basin was where the priests (Aaron and his descendants) were to wash before carrying out the duties that were to be done in service of the Tabernacle. Many can draw very close conclusions to how Christ wash the feet of the 12(twelve) disciples on Passover before he was betrayed to this way of service.{Putting Christ, in the seat of a High Priest;  [Order of Melchisedeq]*}. The Anointing Oil was for the priests to be anointed before conducting the service of the ministry and for all the objects of the sanctuary.

ki tissa - parsha (priests water basin)

Moses, then spoke with two chosen to build for Israel, the sanctuary of the Tabernacle. Betz’alel, of Judah(son of Uri), and Aholiab, of Dan(son of Achiycamakh); would build: the Tabernacle, the Ark, and all the furniture for the sancutuary, along with these: the garments of the priests, also.

ki tissa - parsha (betzalel ben hur and oholiab ben achiysamach)

Moses then, ascends the Mount, that is Sinai, & it would seem to the children of Israel, that he would never return, for he stayed for forty days. But, once he descended, he found that Aaron & the Levites had molted gold together to make a calf that the children of Israel worshiped.

ki tissa - parsha (moses ascends the mount)

But, before Moses could return there were certain ones in and among the children of Israel, convincing Aaron to make a calf of gold which they began to worship, for Moses stayed atop the mountain to the point that some presumed his death.

ki tissa - parsha (the calf of gold)

Moses, then receiving instruction from YHWH, to return to the people for they corrupted themselves with an idol.  Moses, at the moment’s notice tried to intercede upon seeing what the people had done, but waxed hot in anger, & destroyed the tablets of stone with the instructions on the calf of gold.

I welcome you all to one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

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, more than likely have come to the Torah portion of Ækeb(Ekev/Eiqeb)- עֵקֶב On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5773, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 19th-יט , & the 20th-כ , day of the Hebrew month of Ab(v)-אב , for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (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 also known as Indeeh’m Y’honal-እንዲህም ይሆናል, also for the 19th-፲፱, & the 20th-፳ days of the ወርኀ(month) of ሐምሌ(Hámlæ).  The Ethiopic calendar 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:

Deuteronomy 7:12- 11:25

Isaiah 49:14- 51:3

Hebrews 11: 8-11

Romans 8: 31-39

 

Before going forward with this week’s parsha study, we should take an in-depth look at the name of the portion, for this week: Ækeb (Ekev/Eiqeb)-עֵקֶב= other various phonetic pronunciations).  

The significance of this parsha’s name, should be a notated because the resemblance it has to Isaac’s son, Jacob, brother of Esau; in the Amharic & Hebrew languages.

Jacob(Israel)[Yaiqob]

Finding relations to the parsha for this week and the name, Jacob, will be very telling; in the order of over-standing(“understanding”) where this portion of the Scriptures intends to enlighten the mind.

With this said, let us begin our comprehensive reflection on the study of the Scripture lesson.  The beginning of the readings of Deuteronomy, begin with Moses speaking to the children of Israel, instructing them in the way God commanded him.  Moses is to teach the people of the blessings for obedience to God, his commandments, laws, and statutes, also the directions for taking possession of the Land of Promise.

Eikeb-parsha(1stVerse)

After Moses receives the instructions from God to teach the children of Israel, he then instructs them, insuring that they know they should observe and do them, for things to go well & in their favor. (pertaining to God)  God, in turn, will not only bring them into the land but, will bless them abundantly.

[Deut. 7: 12-26]

Warnings and exhortations were given to the children of Israel, in the sense of them taking advantage of pursuing the inheritance, that was a covenant between God, Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob. 

[Deut. 8: 1-20]

"...A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;..." [Deut. 8:8]

“…A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;…” [Deut. 8:8]

Israel, after receiving instruction was to then, go over the river Jordan to possess the land, & drive out those who would not dwell peaceably with them.  For God strove against the wickedness of other nations.

[Deut. 9: 1-5]

Crossing Over Jordan _[Deut. 9:1]

Crossing Over Jordan _[Deut. 9:1]

But even with all of this brewing in good favor for the children of Israel, they stray from the path which should have led straightway to the fullness of JAH(God)’s grace and blessing .  But, because Israel is & always has been a “stiffnecked people,” Moses has to plead a case to God for the children of Israel.  God had sought to utterly destroy the children of Israel for their constant disobedience.  Moses, intercedes for Israel for they had brought nearly about God’s wrath upon them.  Recalling the time at Horeb, Israel making a molten image to worship, and provoked God to anger so much so, that God prepared obliterate them & make a nation out of Moses [& Tsipporah].  (new nation: hence, the Ethio-Hebrews, that would later come with Sheba & Solomon, in spite of the various surrounding happenings)  For Moses’ sake, God’s wrath was turned away from Israel.

[Deut. 9: 6-29]

After this God told Moses, to hew two stone tablets, for the words which were on the set before them, Moses broke for he waxed hot in anger towards Israel for their stubbornness and disobedience to God ‘s laws.  Along with these, was a wooden ark made to be put into the Ark of the Covenant.  So the words of the Sinaitic Covenant were restored.

[Deut. 10: 1-5]

ark2

For the children of Israel to dwell in the Land of Promise, in peace and prosperity, observation and the diligence to keep the laws, commandments , and statutes of God was a vital part of the covenant between Israel & their God.  Obedience would bring forth favor, protection, and abundance.

[Deut. 10: 6- 11:25]

I welcome you all to one of many of the interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with an open mind and heart, you will receive more than what you might have asked for in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

Now, with that said, let us go right into this…

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 Ki-Tis(h)a-כִּי תִשָּׂא , from a Jewish/Hebrew mode of study for those out in the diaspora, living outside of Jerusalem or Israel. Others who engage this type of study more than likely read the portion of V(W)ayakhel. From the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the 5773 this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 26th & 27th of the month of  Adar-אֲדָר .

Now, for in summation of the study we have in front of us; In this portion of the study of the Scriptures, the men of the children of Israel were to make Atonement for them and their families. So, in turn, the atonement that was made by the men of the families could have been compared to a sort of census taking an account for the children of Israel. A half-shekel of silver was what was known to be used to donate to the sanctuary of Israel. The finest of spices and of oils, and these were to be taken for an anointment, as well. The ten of the Tabernacle was to be anointed, the Ark of the Covenant, along with all that was in the sanctuary. The Sabbath was to be continually kept, for how the anointing sanctified the Tabernacle; the Sabbath sanctified them to God.
