Join us Tuesday evenings, at 7:30 pm U.S. Central Time for our free virtual Zoom Torah portion discussion. ​Everyone participates in open discussions. Please click here to fill out the application.  We will contact you. For more information call 832-457-7141 or send an email to info@yeshuaconnection.net

  • Each person chooses 7 points from the 26 points listed at the bottom of this page.

  • We do 7 rounds. 

  • In each round, each person shares one of their points for up to 2 minutes. 

Please time your points prior to the meeting and time yourself during your 2 minutes at the meeting.

 

After 2 minutes you will be muted and the next person unmuted.

 

After we have our 7 rounds if time allows, each person will have up to 5 minutes to discuss or make on-topic comments or ask on-topic questions.


If you are not a facilitator and disagree with another participant contact them after the meeting for a private discussion. 

Please be considerate of the Yeshua Connection format.  

 

Ask G-d to enable you to share 7 points that will encourage, convict, inform, or put a smile on other participants' faces.

 

The best way to study for the meeting is to read over the 26 points a few times before you read the portion of scripture we will be discussing.

 

For each meeting, your study time will usually be between 1 and 2 hours. 

Since this is a Jewish bible study, only quote Messianic Jewish or Traditional Jewish bibles and commentaries. Complete Jewish Bible, Tree of Life Bible, or any other Messianic or Traditional Jewish bible. Some can be found in a free online version or you can do a search on Google for the verse with the name of the bible or version (TLV, CJB). For Tanakh only use JPS.


Please make sure what you prepare to speak about will not go over your 2 minutes. You will be muted after 2 minutes.

 

All comments need to have a foundation in the portion of scripture we have studied.

 

When you share your point, please give the number of the point that you will be sharing.

 

Please give chapters and verses of all scriptures that you mention.
