Welcome to the Torah Portion Shemini. 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.
Now it happened on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron, his sons, and the elders of Israel. Then he said to Aaron, “Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before YHWH. You are to speak to the children of Israel, saying: Take a male goat for a sin offering, along with a calf and a lamb, both yearlings without blemish, for a burnt offering, plus a bull and a ram for fellowship offerings, to sacrifice before YHWH, along with a grain offering mixed with oil. For today YHWH appears to you.”
