“On the Mountain” Torah Portion

 

Leviticus 25-26:2 Every seven years, the fields have a Sabbath to lay fallow.  Every fifty years is the Jubilee, a release of all debts and return to original family land claims. Houses in a walled city may be redeemed within a year; they are not released in the Jubilee.  Levites, however, have no sizable land holdings, and their cities and houses are their possession in the land.  Levites’ city houses must be released, like other tribes’ land holdings.  When a brother is down, do not treat him harshly.

Jeremiah 32:6-27 Even as the city was falling, there was a promise of returning His people to Israel.

Luke 4:16-21  Yashua reads Isaiah 61, proclaiming release and Jubilee.

Galatians 5:1-13 Salvation is not in circumcision, but freedom comes from Yashua.

Psalm 119:1-8  His Law is blessing.  Though not the means of salvation, it is a blessing upon our living and our relationship with YHWH.
