Genesis 32:3 - 36:43


Obadiah 1:1-2

Welcome to the Torah Portion Vayishlach. 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.

Then Jacob sent messengers before him to his brother Esau, to the land of Seir, the field of Edom. He also commanded them saying, “This is what you should say to my lord, to Esau: ‘This is what your servant Jacob said: I’ve been staying with Laban, and have lingered until now. Now I’ve come to possess oxen and donkeys, flocks, male servants and female servants. I sent word to tell my lord, in order to find favor in your eyes.’”

    In the echoes through the scripture portion @ around 18 min you mentioned that the presence of God Being in the midst of Israelites during the wilderness. Am I understanding you correctly or did i just go into Lala land ? because I’m statrting to think that through Yeshua and the Ruach the presence of God is in our midst since HE initiated the new exodus (God can be reached through Yeshua)?
    Like always Ryan fanstatic job ????

    Your brought up a very interesting perspective about how the proper way to maintain honor by paying a higher bride price. I have never heard of this idea. Can you please provide a reference where the Torah says to pay a higher bride price if the girl was defiled before marriage?
