This class is for the special Sabbath of Shabbat Zachor. It is a Sabbath to remember, but what is it that we are supposed to remember? Amalek! In this teaching, delivered on the Sabbath immediately preceding the holiday known as Purim, Ross reminds us to remember and not forget what Amalek did to the children of Israel as they left Egypt. Ross shows that this special Sabbath reminds us that there is an age-old enemy, who wages war against the kingdom of God. What is this war about? What brought on the enemy known historically as Amalek, and what should we watch out for today? You will not want to miss this special class!
This week Ross begins his teaching series on the tabernacle. There is more information on the tabernacle and its furnishings than any other subject. There are an estimated 300 passages! Could the subject really be THAT important? In this class from Torah reading Terumah, Ross highlights what is required to make a holy place for our God. Whether speaking of the tent or the Temple, the same is required. Those who contribute to the work must do so from a willing heart. You will not want to miss this teaching.
In this week’s class, Ross shares a message in his series from the Book of Exodus on the giving of the Ten Words. Beginning with Moses’ first encounter with God at Horeb, Ross shows that the entire plan of salvation culminates in a revelation that would take place in that very place known as the Mountain of God. He connects the two events, showing that the former is a sign of the latter. Time and again, Scripture relates that YHVH communicated His covenant to the entire assembly of Israel from the midst of the fire. What was spoken from the midst of the fire? These words are the subject of this class. You will not want to miss this teaching on Fire Law!
In this week’s teaching Ross covers the final act of Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. He begins by establishing the connection between Israel’s salvation and the lovingkindness or chesed of YHVH as it relates to the greatest story of redemption ever told. He demonstrates through Scripture that the ultimate purpose of the Exodus was to make YHVH known in all the earth. Ross shows that the salvation of Israel involves the destruction of the enemy AND the saving of God’s people and makes the point that this theme is often repeated in the Bible. Carefully working through passages, Ross shows that the fear of YHVH and trust in YHVH and Moses were prerequisites for salvation and proposes that the same is required today.

In this teaching on Torah reading VaEra, Ross shares the reason for Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. Beginning with God’s word to Abram about the enslavement of his descendants, Ross covers sets the stage for a clear understanding of the salvation of God’s firstborn son – Israel. He shows that the promised salvation is brought about through a series of signs and wonders, meant to strike the oppressing nation for the purpose of making YHVH known in all the earth. He further shows that these signs and wonders testified to the Oneness of God and was intended to be remembered as the greatest act of salvation ever accomplished. That is, until some future deliverance will overshadow the exodus from Egypt. Ross compares these two events, demonstrating that most likely the 2nd Exodus will follow a similar pattern but on a greater scale. You will not want to miss this teaching!
