Nehemia Gordon & Keith Johnson – Pearls from the Torah Portion – Vezot Haberakhah – Deuteronomy 33:1-34:12

Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

– Martin Luther King

    I wish you would go back through the portion, it was so good.

  4. laura says

    Shaloam Jono, Keith and Nemo I have to say that listening to the last Torah Pearls brought tears to my eyes. The thought of ending these Torah pearls with you guys truly saddened me. You all are dynamite together! I can just hope and pray that this isnt the last we hear from the three amigos.
    Love you all

    Thank you very much for going through the Torah, explaining and enlightening us in all the “Pearls”. I really enjoyed every one of them.

  6. Ester says

    Well, we didn’t get to the end of that! You guys will just have to continue! LOL !
    A big thank you for all the Torah pearls! In this program that would be
    Yeshurun being Yisrael! Who could connect that, if not for Nehemia Gordon explaining it, and Keith Johnson pointing that out?
    Shalom and Joyful Sukkot to you three!
    Looking forward to MORE! Blessings!

  7. Sandi Hayman says

    Thanks again for this great year of Torah Pearls. Whatever you 3 decide to do…I’m all for it! I have really enjoyed listening and learning. Each week I soak up all you send out. I love Job too… and Yoel…Kultured Karite…ALL of it. Please continue with our blessings. Jono, you have encouraged me to continue in studying the Hebrew language. You’re so smooth…how long have you been taking Hebrew? May your Succahs be filled with love, joy and laughter.

  8. Edi Worthington Platt says

    No–you are not a three ring circus! A three ring circus is today’s religions! Torah Pearls are pure and you three men are helping all of us as well as yourselves to dig deep into the Word of Yehovah. THANK YOU ALL for making Torah come alive.

  12. dot olsen says

    Thanks for the explanation of my name (just kidding), I really appreciated learning more about da’at. This cycle has been so rich, thanks to the work you have done on behalf of the name of Yehovah and to bless His people. Looking forward to having the haftarot illuminated in the upcoming cycle, Yehovah willing. May your arms be strengthened to all the mighty tasks the Almighty is setting before you!

  13. Miriam says

    Bless the 3 of you for all your time and effort in presenting to us such a wonderful Torah study all these many weeks.
    Does anyone know why Simeon was not in the blessings in this torah portion.

  14. eric john nagel says

    Shalom gents,
    Thanks so very much for all your work with Torah Pearls and all your projects. I pray you might consider another go at a Torah cycle…using the triennial, that in addition to your delving into the prophets and other writings. We need you to keep going.

  16. Tiffany says

    So deeply thankful for all of you.

  17. Sheryl says

    You got me blubbering at the end. I will miss this every week. Thankfully I can listen to them again. You guys are such a blessing! Thank-you so much for all your hard work. May Yehovah bless.

  18. Jim Murray says

    Dear Jono,
    Thank you so much for truth2u radio! I really appreciate Torah Pearls. I sense a true kinship with you, Keith and Nehemia as you discuss and share Torah together. This is the only place I experience such fellowship and I can’t begin to express what it means to me. May Yehovah bless and keep you and yours in the days and years to come.
    Sincerely,
    Jim Murray

    I don’t think your lashan harah against Rabbi Messer is uncalled for and wrong. Rabbi Messer does not claim to teach Hebrew, but Talmud Torah in a Chabbad Yeshiva. He stuggled all his life with dyslexia and ADD and oral reading is not his strong point. He even stumbles over English. I what you said is cruel. I will listen because I like a different point of view, but I will never buy a book or contribute.

  20. Kelvin (aka RECON) says

    Thank you so much guys, you guys have done an oustanding job in clearing so much from what we all have inherit from our fathers (doctrine/theology/tradition) rather than the truth and nothing but the truth! I will continue listening to you guys in the Pearls from the Prophets!! Shalom and Yehovah Im’machem. Yehovah be with you.

  21. Meagan says

    Thank you for these Torah teachings. They have been a blessing, a challenge and a joy. We really appreciate these teachings because we are living in the Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada and do not have access to a physical fellowship of like minded believers…..once again, thank you.

  22. Anthony & Jennifer says

    This Torah Portion was once again, a great ‘lecture’ for us all. We all should study more from the ancient words given to us by those prophets of old, in order to find ourselves approved by YHWH/YHVH.
    I believe most people are just trying their darndest to get the Word out to as many people as possible (as I once did), in the shortest amount of time. Forgetting to search those things in which they are instructing others to search out. I once would say (and this was my only understanding of the Truth), “Jesus Love’s You” and that was my ministry. It worked, but the sheep needed more food, and the preacher man that I was getting my instructions from, had no field to graze, grain to give, or anything else for these wondering sheep. I was at a standstill. Then Yehovah showed up! Now it is beginning to be clear, and exciting. And especially with the three of you faithful servants teaching, and correcting exactly that which we believe. Toda Raba (תודה רבה)
    Hallelu Yahu and All His Servants.

  23. Rocky Jackson says

    Well another Cycle is complete and enjoyed every minute AGAIN .

    And then the 3 round a midrash on the New Testement
    Wouldn’t that be Yah some…..

    As for some its Ykm Kippor others in a few days Enjoy
    May yhvh have mercy on our souls

    PRAISE YAHSHUA MISHPECHA,

    PLEASE EXCUSE THE SPELLING IT IS HARD TO SOMETIMES EXPRESS THE HEBREW USING ENGLISH WORDS. THE TEACHINGS ARE A BLESSING. WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHERE TO GET THE SCRIPTURES THAT NEHEMIA IS READING FROM. JUST DON’T KNOW IF THE HEBREW IS COUPLED BY THE ENGLISH, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. DON’T ALWAYS AGREE WITH ALL ESPECIALLY CONCERNING YAHSHUA BUT AS THAT MAY BE, IT IS A BLESSING TO HAVE A YEHUDITE SHARING WITH US, IT IS A VERY BOLD STEP BUT THIS IS WHAT HAS BEEN FORETOLD AND WELL IT IS HAPPENING. MAY YAHSHUA BLESS YOU ALL. MAY YOU HAVE A BLESSED YOM KIPPUR AND SUKKOT. SHALOM ALEICHEM.

  25. mikhael says

    excellent

    PRAISE YAUSHUA ALL,
    Sorry but i cannot let this slip if brother Kieth does not want to do it i will, i heard him say oh boy and well you are right oh boy. Nehemiah you obviously know quite a bit about the Hebrew with all your studies and your efforts are appreciated they really are but one would get the impression that some form of professorship is required in order to be saved. If this be the case then many in fact majority of humanity are doomed. i just find it strange that a LOVING ELOHIM WOULD ALLOW THAT. AS IT SAYS THAT IT IS NOT HIS WILL THAT ANY PERISH BUT ALL COME TO REPENTANCE.
    You tend to keep on knocking the messianic and christian view on messiah this only displays a sense of insecurity to me. Most messianics are striving to keep TORAH and many christians are coming to a knowledge of the TORAH. We can only keep that which we know about and if mere little mankind knows that believe me so does ELOHIM.
    If you are right about messiah then what difference does it make for us who to the best of our knowledge are trying to please ELOHIM. But on the other hand what happens if we are right and you did require HIS SACRIFICE. Thank you for all that you are doing but ease off on the messiah bashing it becomes a bit irritating. You feel you are right great leave it that way just don’t try and convince others. That was your agreement with brother Kieth was it not.
    Last but not least Isaiah 9:6 you talk about the closed mem which was not there and then you and Jono talk about taken isolated or picture studies and forming doctrine. Well you took very little to wash away two complete verses based on one added i might add (now there is poetry) Hebrew letter the closed mem.
    But lets look at your satement you say this describes one of Isaiah’s sons. That you get from where in TORAH and let us look at his description THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE UPON HIS SHOULDERS, SO THIS SON WAS A RULER OF ISRAEL WHICH RULER WAS HE. AND HIS NAME WILL BE CALLED WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, ALMIGHTY G-D, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF SHALOM. REALLY. OH MY HOW FAR FETCHED IS THAT. i have heard others say this is king Hezekiah based on his name. WOW talk about mans doctrine. i WILL GO WITH YAHSHUA AS MANY OTHER PIECES OF TORAH DESCRIBE NAIL PRINTS, PIECINGS, REJECTION BETRAYAL, BEING SOLD FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER, AND AND AND AND, THESE DESCRIPTIONS OF AN INDIVIDUAL WHICH DESCRIBES YAHSHUA. GIVE ME YOUR PIECES OTHER THAN AN ADDED CLOSED MEM. OUR PIECES TO THE PUZZLE FITS A LOT BETTER THAN YOURS DOES THANK YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOU LABEL IT.
    Anyway my words will be read if it is posted by a few, your words have been heard by thousands, well done. ANYWAY MAY YAHSHUA BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
