Yeshua’s Torah Readings for Shabbat (January 28 2017)

And Yeshua came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on Shabbat, as was his custom. (Luke 4:16-17)

Long before Yeshua was born until today, Jewish people have and continue to gather in synagogues and hear the words of their Scriptures read by members who are chosen to do the readings at each service. The portions to be read are determined by schedule in which the entire Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers & Deuteronomy) is read in either a one year or three year cycle.

January 21 2017 Shabbat Torah Readings of Yeshua

“And as Yeshua's custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Shabbat, and stood up to read.” (Luke 4:16)
Shabbat begins at sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday.

(1) People who are absolutely sure that Jesus is the one and only God, the Creator of the universe and the words of their Bibles are the inerrant and infallible truths.

(2) People who are absolutely sure the Jesus never existed and the words of the Bible are pure fiction.
