Genesis 1:1 - 6:8


Isaiah 42:5 - 43:10

Welcome to the Torah Portion Bereshit. In this post, we will cover the weekly Torah portion and weekly Haftarah portion from a cultural perspective. There is also an Echoes Through Scripture teaching which takes a theme from the Torah portion and connects it throughout the rest of the Hebrew Bible and into the Apostolic Scriptures.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was chaos and waste, darkness was on the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering upon the surface of the water.
