Welcome to the Torah Portion Ki Tisa. 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.
YHWH said to Moses, “When you take the census of the people of Israel, then each shall give a ransom for his life to YHWH when you number them, that there be no plague among them when you number them. Each one who is numbered in the census shall give this: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as an offering to YHWH. Everyone who is numbered in the census, from twenty years old and upward, shall give YHWH's offering.
