VAYIKRA (Book of Leviticus) Massoretic, Hebrew, Aramaic, JPS, Kaplan texts of Genesis from the Jewish Publication Society Bible
Torah Class Old Testament Bible Study for a New Testament Understanding Torah is the Hebrew word for the first 5 books of the Bible and it is the foundation of the Old Testament just as the Old Testament is the foundation of the New. The Old Testament (Tanach) is the Holy Scripture that Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew) taught from, and His Disciples referred to, since there was no New Testament until well after the time of the Apostles that succeeded Him. The Old and New Testaments are inseparable and only when used together do we have a complete, unified, divinely-inspired Bible. Torah Class cross-references the Torah and Old Testament passages with New Testament passages to reveal their seamless continuity.

Blood and Purity in Leviticus K. C. Hanson explains that to understand the ancient texts which Jewish and Christian communities hold as scripture, we must pay close attention to how symbols such as blood bear deep emotive power, communicating anger, disgust, relief, and devotion. They are part of larger systems of meaning and self-understanding, and cannot be pulled out of context without loss. Understanding the purity systems of ancient Israelites and early Christians can also help us reflect on our own systems of meaning and the culturally-defined systems of purity in which we participate.
