In this study from Torah parashah Terumah we see the beautiful symbolism within the Mikdash (Tabernacle) that reveals Yah’s Plan of Salvation and shows us how God desires to “dwell” within us and what Selfless love looks like when Divinity “dwells” in Humanity!
Learn the symbolism of Joseph and Benjamin and Judah as different aspects of Messiah’s mission! In this parashah, we see the reoccuring theme of intercession as Judah interceeds on behalf of his brother Benjamin, Joseph reveals himself to his brothers and then interceeds to Pharoah for land in Goshen for his family coming from Canaan. Jacob comes down to Egypt, and Joseph’s administration of Egypt saves lives but transforms all the Egyptians into bondmen.
Learn the symbolism of Joseph and Benjamin as different aspects of Messiah and the correlation with Joseph being brought forth from the pit (on Rosh Hashana/Yom Teruah/Day of Trumpeting) and those who will be brought forth from the pit of Death when Messiah comes on a future Day of Trumpeting! Contemplate the lessons for us in needing to have discernment and wisdom like Joseph to prepare for the coming famine (both Spiritual and Physical) and be a blessing to not only our families but all that God brings to us!
