NOTICE: We are now meeting at a new location, we are now meeting at Food Matters Market in Morganton, NC.
In this week's study, the group continues on, on page 3 of book 1 of the Chronicles of the Messiah under the header "By Wisdom". A lot of questions are asked and answered in terms of what חכמה (chochmah: wisdom) is and where it comes from and how to recognize it and attain it in our lives when striving for tzedikim. Some mussar is given in terms of the functions of males and females in the Jewish home and the reason marriage is the first mitzvos mentioned and commanded in the Torah and how this relates to חכמה (wisdom).
The chapters in the Chronicles of the Messiah may take several weeks to complete each chapter. This week we covered only page 2 and 3 entitled "In the Beginning". The entire chapter covers John 1:1-1:18. We discussed the Messiah in creation and what the sages say in terms of this concept.
Christopher discusses the Torah Portion Lech Lecha from the vantage point of the Zohar and the New Testament. He focuses greatly on Zohar Lech Lech 1:1-2 in terms of the internal aspect of Torah and how righteousness relies on the ideal of putting the discombobulated in order and seeking shalom as opposed to division. Christopher also discusses Zohar Lech Lecha 2:6 and Zohar Lech Lecha 2:9 in terms of the crier in the Temple in relation to Matthew 26 and the rooster mentioned and how the rooster is actually the crier of the temple and what the Zohar says in relation to the rooster signifies the spiritual immaturity Kefa possessed at that time but later matured and brought about great wisdom in his letters.
