וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה אַחֲרֵי מֹות שְׁנֵי בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן בְּקָרְבָתָם לִפְנֵי־יְהוָה וַיָּמֻֽתוּ

Vay'daber ADONAI el-Moshe acharei mot sh'ney b'ney Aharon b'karvatam lifney-ADONAI vayamutu

"ADONAI spoke with Moshe after the death of Aharon's two sons, when they tried to sacrifice before ADONAI and died."


Welcome to Parashat Acharei Mot. This particular commentary will represent the longest, most comprehensive article on the weekly portions that I have written to date. Be prepared for a long read! The following topics will be examined:

• Kippur
• Apologetics Part One
• Apologetics Part Two
• Yeshua’s Bloody Sacrifice
• There’s Power in the Blood!
• Do the Torah
• Conclusions

This particular parashah contains within it some of the single most impacting verses in the Torah. In theological studies, we call these passages “chair passages” as they have the power to change an entire theological argument, like a judge passing a sentence. In other words, sometimes a single passage can decide which direction in the proverbial fork in the road we should embark down!
