This week’s Torah portion comes from Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11. The prophet reading is Isaiah 40:1-26. This is the second class in Ross’ series on the Book of Deuteronomy, and the first of seven prophetic readings of consolation. In this teaching Ross examines the basis for becoming a wise and understanding people. What instructions did Moses give to the children of Israel that specifically spelled out, how they would eventually become a great nation? Ross also shows the meaning and significance of the phrase fear of YHVH.
