Torah: From Beginnings to the Promised Land – January 13, 2019

You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. O that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statues! (Psalm 119 4-5)

The importance of the Torah in the foundational story of the Hebrew people cannot be overestimated. Just like the story that led Israel to the Promised Land and the crossing of the Jordan, baptism is our symbol of crossing into the Promised Land of God’s presence.
