Parashat Yitro

Saturday 3 February 2018 Shevat 18 5778

Exodus 18:1-20:26; Isaiah 6:1-7:6, 9:6-7; Matthew 19:16-26

When God revealed Himself to us, He did not give us a systematic theology, creeds, recipes, or diagrams. He gave us a legal code consisting of covenant terms and obligations. He gave us laws, and each law brings a fresh revelation of His person.

He did not give the laws of the Torah just to tidy up human society
