Cand ADONAI Se daruie pe Sine : Frumusetea Torei

Sarbatoarea Saptamanilor – Shavuot

Aceasta Sarbatoare o gasim descrisa in Levitic ( Vaikra )  23 : 15-22.Shofarul Sarbatorilor
“ De a 2-a zi dupa Shabbat, din ziua cand veti  aduce snopul ca  sa fie leganat  intr-o parte si intr-alta , sa numarati 7 saptamani intregi . Sa numarati cincizeci de zile pana in ziua care vine de la al saptelea Shabbat, si atunci sa duceti Domnului un nou dar de mancare. ( …)  Cand veti secera semanaturile din tara voastra , sa lasi neceserat un colt din campul tau, si sa nu strangi ce ramane de pe urma seceratorilor , Sa lasi saracului si strainului aceste spice . Eu sunt Domnul Dumnezeul vostru.”
Sarbatoarea Saptamanilor , sau Cincizecimea ( evr. Shavuot ) este o Sarbatoare care vizeaza de asemenea primele roade. Perioada numararii Omerului incepe imediat  dupa  primul Shabbat al Pesach-ului , continuand pana la Cincizecime. In Torah se cer 7 saptamani de numarare a Omerului, asa cum se poate vedea in Vaikra 23: 15- 17, 21 . Datorita acestui ritual al numararii , perioada dintre Pesach si Shavuot se mai numeste simplu OMER sau in alte traduceri mai vechi NUMARATOAREA OMERULUI. ( mai departe , AICI )

    In acest Shabat citim pericopa Naso

    Welcome to our Torah study on this week’s portion of Scripture, which is called Naso (lift up).

    This portion of Scripture will be read in synagogues all over the world this Shabbat (Saturday). Please read it along with us. We know you will be blessed!

    NASO (Lift Up)
    Numbers 4:21–7:89; Judges 13:2–25; Acts 23:20–24

    “Take [naso] a census also of the Gershonites by their families and clans.” (Numbers 4:22)

    In last week’s Torah portion, Parsha Bemidbar (In the Desert), God commanded that a census be taken of Israel.

    This week’s Torah portion continues with the numbering of the Levitical families, detailing their duties.

    Each man was to be given a specific task, ensuring an equitable distribution of the work.

    “At the Lord’s command through Moses, each was assigned his work and told what to carry.” (Numbers 4:49)

    A Model for Community Living

    “Count the Merarites by their clans and families. Count all the men from thirty to fifty years of age who come to serve in the work at the tent of meeting.” (Numbers 4:29–30)

    This Parsha models community living, especially in regard to serving the Lord.

    When we live and work together in community, and everyone has their own assigned tasks so that each carries part of the load, burdens do not fall too heavily on a few key individuals.

    This is the idea behind the communal lifestyle of the Israeli kibbutz movement. It’s also the lifestyle of the early kehillah—the first community of Believers in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah).

    “Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.” (Acts 2:44–45)

    We are called to fulfill the Torah of loving one another by helping bear one another’s burdens.

    There are many ways to do this. We can help those overloaded with daily responsibilities; we can also encourage and comfort those who are carrying heavy emotional burdens.

    The Lord, however, did not leave us relying totally on one another. Yeshua (Jesus) gives us rest when we are tired and burdened.

    „Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

    But to experience that rest, we must be willing to go to Him, laying aside our self-sufficiency, and trusting Him with our worries, cares and anxieties.

    “Cast all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

    Jealousy and Trust

    “If feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure—or if he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure—then he is to take his wife to the priest.” (Numbers 5:14–15)

    This Parsha also deals with the law of jealousy.

    God gave Israel a way to manage jealousy and suspicion in marriage.

    Interestingly enough, the Hebrew word for marriage is nissuin, which is plural for naso (lift up), the name of this week’s Parsha. God’s intention for marriage is to lift us up.

    Sometimes, however, the green-eyed monster of jealousy drags a relationship down. According to this Parsha, if a husband became jealous and suspected his spouse of unfaithfulness, his suspicions might be valid or invalid.

    Thus, to resolve this issue of trust, which is necessary for the success of any relationship, the Cohen (priest) would bring the woman in question before the Lord and administer a test to determine her guilt or innocence.

    The Cohen (priest) would utter an oath that would protect her from certain curses if she were innocent; however, if she were guilty, she would come under the curses that were written on a scroll and then dissolved into bitter waters.

    The woman would commit to this oath by responding, „Amen. Amen.” (Numbers 5:22)

    Once the woman took the oath, she would then drink the waters of bitterness that the priest had prepared. Either the curses would come true and expose her guilt or nothing would happen to her and she would be declared innocent.

    When people respond „amen” to a vow or oath, they are coming into agreement with it as if they swear the oath themselves.

    Although the word amen is traditionally considered an acronym for „Eli Melech, Ne’eman” (God, Faithful King), the Hebrew word amen comes from the root that means believe, confirm, and support.

    Amen is also related to the Hebrew word emunah (faith), which is derived from the same root.

    It’s evident from Numbers 5:30 that a spirit of jealousy (ruach kinah) can come upon a person.

    “When the spirit [ruach] of jealousy [kinah] comes upon a man…” (Numbers 5:30)

    Jealousy, when it is suspicious, overbearing, possessive and demanding, is ugly and sinful.

    Nevertheless, jealousy can also be virtuous, and it’s not necessarily a negative thing in an intimate relationship.

    It’s appropriate to be passionate and to desire undivided loyalty, devotion and faithfulness. No moral spouse wants to share a partner with someone else.

    Solomon described this passion well:

    “Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy [kinah] unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.” (Song of Songs 8:6)

    In fact, the Hebrew word for jealousy (kinah) is also often translated zeal, as in the following Messianic prophecy:

    “Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal [kinah] of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.” (Isaiah 9:7)

    Can a Holy God Be Jealous?

    It’s supremely evident in Scripture that God regards Israel as His special treasure, even as a wife (Hosea 2:19). He protects Israel because she is precious to Him.

    Indeed, in Exodus 34:14, we see that one of the names for God is El Kanah (Jealous God).

    Since God is holy, we can know that there is an expression of jealousy that is not rooted in selfishness, but in love and holiness.

    This theme carries over into the Brit Chadashah (New Covenant), where we read that our God is passionately devoted to us and, therefore, jealous of our affections.

    “Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he?” (1 Corinthians 10:22)

    The Aaronic Benediction

    This week’s portion ends with one of the most famous passages in the Book of Numbers: The Aaronic Benediction (Numbers 6:24–27).

    “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24–26)

    Since this blessing was pronounced over the people by the priest, we understand that words are important and powerful. In fact, Scripture says that the power of life and death is in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).

    The Lord bless [y’varech’cha] you: The first element of the benediction is blessing. The Hebrew word bless is barak. This word shares the same root as knee (berech). In fact, the word barak means to bless and to kneel. It takes real humility to get down on our knees and receive the blessing of God.

    and keep you: The word keep is shomer, which means to guard, watch over and protect from all evil, sickness, poverty and calamity.

    The Lord make His face to shine on you: In this benediction, the Hebrew word panav (His face) is repeated twice, which indicates that we can enjoy an intimate, face-to-face relationship with God. God’s face shining on us indicates His attention, favor, light and friendship.

    and be gracious unto you: When we seek the face of God, instead of just His hands—what He can give us, He will cause His favor and grace to be poured out upon us (Psalm 44:3).

    The Lord lift up [naso] His face [panav] upon you: Here, toward the end of this week’s Parsha, we once again see the name of the Torah reading—naso, which means lift up or elevate. We also see the second usage of the term panav (His face) in this meaningful benediction.

    and give you peace [shalom]: The pinnacle of this blessing is shalom (peace). We can experience this shalom (peace) even in the midst of a storm. Peace is the inheritance of the children of God, as Yeshua said, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.” (John 14:27)

    The Lord is longing to be gracious to us and to bless us. He wants us to receive His blessing, divine protection, favor, the light of His face, and also peace, wholeness, and completion—in Him!

    The Aaronic Benediction ends with these words: “So they will put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:27)

    It’s the name of God upon us that blesses us, establishes us and makes us successful, even gaining for us the victory in all our battles.

    “Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes.” (Psalm 44:5)

    As the Cohanim (priests) blessed the people of Israel, they understood that it’s ultimately God who blesses. Likewise, as people bless us, let us be mindful that God is the ultimate source of all blessing.

    Our ministry team speaks this blessing over you today:

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,
    May He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
    The Lord lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.

    For all of you who have consecrated yourselves to the Lord, who have dedicated yourselves to be a blessing to Israel and the Jewish People, may these prophetic words be of comfort to you:

    “’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10)

    Shabbat Shalom from all our ministry staff!

    „Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” (Proverbs 3:9–10)

  6. Calvin zice:

    Sarut mainile , shalom. Faina prezentare a unei sarbatori pe care multi crestini nu o cunosc …din pacate.
