WHAT IS TORAH CLASS?
Torah Class is an exciting, cutting edge, FREE online Bible study website where you can rediscover the Bible in all its richness and truth. It is a balanced teaching that highlights God’s grace and at the same time obedience to His commandments. We teach you from a Hebraic original language perspective and an original culture perspective (again, Hebrew) offering lessons on the Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy) as well as most other books of the Bible, Old and New Testaments. We allow the Scriptures to speak for themselves and diligently avoid predetermined doctrinal biases.
What is a Hebraic original language and culture perspective? It is an acknowledgment that the Bible is a Hebrew document…..from Genesis to Revelation. It was written by Hebrews, and the backdrop and culture of the Bible is Hebrew. The Messiah, Jesus Christ (Yeshua in Hebrew), was a Hebrew (a Jew from the tribe of Judah). Therefore it is crucial to present and understand God’s Word from the worldview of those to whom it was first entrusted.
First and foremost Torah Class is a ministry of Believers in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah, the Son of God, Lord, and King of Kings. Check out our What We Believe section to get a comprehensive understanding of our faith principles and theology.
Torah Class is one of a family of 5 ministries that together form Seed of Abraham Ministries, with headquarters and a congregation facility in Merritt Island, Florida. An IRS registered non-profit 501 c3 chartable organization, all 5 ministries are oriented towards Bible teaching, bringing the Gospel to Israel in their Hebrew language, and comforting and aiding the people of Israel in tangible, practical ways. Seed of Abraham has 2 staffed facilities in Israel: one in Jerusalem, the other in Ashdod.
Torah is the Hebrew word for the first 5 books of the Bible (Genesis through Deuteronomy). The Torah is the irreplaceable foundation of the Old Testament (Tanakh), just as the Old Testament is the necessary foundation of the New Testament. The Old Testament is the only Holy Scripture that existed in Bible times, and it is what Jesus (Yeshua), Peter, Paul and all the Disciples taught from. There would be no New Testament for well more than a century after Paul’s death. Without knowing the Old Testament in its Hebrew culture and language context, incorrect and incomplete understanding of the New Testament is the result.
The Old and New Testaments together form a complete, unified, divinely-inspired Bible. All books of the Bible are equally important and remain relevant for instruction and revelation of truth from God. Torah Class cross-references the Torah and Old Testament passages with New Testament passages to reveal their seamless continuity.
