Beth Yeshua Torah Procession July 4, 2015. The opening video is that of worship at Congregation Beth Yeshua, which is located in Macon, Georgia. A time of great honor and respect is shown when the Torah is carried around the interior of the sanctuary (see notes below). The video is one of still photographs that were made during a Sabbath worship service (Sabbath lasts from Friday at sunset until Saturday at sunset). As I have viewed this video (many times), I have been drawn to the facial expressions of the people, in which I see “smiling faces on happy people.” Those same people show expressions of solemn and reverential respect. As I have viewed the Torah procession, I have been awe-struck, due to the honor and respect that the people give to the Torah, which is of God’s Holy Word. In the video you will also see prayer shawls being worn (talit). (https://www.myjewishlearning.com/?s=talit
Torah means, “teachings”(I have also seen “teaching). The Torah contains the first five books of the Bible, “Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.” Much of Exodus through Deuteronomy contains the Law, of which Christ fulfilled (Matthew 5:17), when He breathed His last breath on the cross at Calvary, and said,” it is finished” (John 19:30).
Congregation Beth Yeshua is identified as a Messianic Jewish congregation. Jewish and Gentile believers in Christ attend this congregation. Consider its website statement.
What is Messianic Judasim? http://www.bethyeshuainternational.com/shalom/messianic-judaism/
Messianic Judaism is a movement of Jewish people from all walks of life, who believe that Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) is the promised Jewish Messiah and Savior for Israel and the world. Messianic Jews have not stopped being Jewish. On the contrary, we have continued to remain strongly Jewish in our identity, lifestyle, and belief that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah and the fulfillment of true Biblical Judaism.
Consider Mirrian Webster’s Dictionary definition of “Reverence;” consider the two passages of scripture which follow.
Mirriam Webster Dictionary https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/reverence
Definition of reverence
1 : honor or respect felt or shown : DEFERENCE
especially : profound adoring awed respect
2 : a gesture of respect (such as a bow
Habakkuk 2:20 Living Bible (TLB)
20 “But the Lord is in his holy Temple; let all the earth be silent before him.”
Proverbs 14:26-27 Living Bible (TLB)
26 Reverence for God gives a man deep strength; his children have a place of refuge and security.
27 Reverence for the Lord is a fountain of life; its waters keep a man from death.
As you read through this article, and engage in worship through the opening and closing worship videos, consider your own desires for increased and heightened times of worship and praise.
The following links come from “My Jewish Learning,” which is a Jewish site (non-Messianic). Information is provided about the Torah and the parading of the Torah around the interior of a sanctuary. https://www.myjewishlearning.com/about-us/
The Torah (Hebrew for “the teachings”) is the name given to the Five Books of Moses which come at the very beginning of the Bible. These books form the basis of all Jewish law and practice. A Torah scroll is a parchment scroll on which all five books have been inscribed by a specially trained calligrapher. Torah scrolls are typically kept in synagogues, in a special cabinet called an ark.
The First of the Five Books of Moses begins with the creation of the world out of the void. It ends with the last days of Moses. Each week a different sidrah (Torah portion) is read on Saturday morning in traditional synagogues. Here is a list of the Torah portions for the entire year and a brief summary of their contents.
Taking Out the Torah
The Torah service begins with the chanting of a series of biblical verses, primarily from the Book of Psalms, describing God’s grandeur and role as king of the universe. In every synagogue, the Torah scrolls are kept in a cabinet called the Aron haKodesh, or holy ark. In Sephardic congregations, the cabinet is called a Teivah (ark).
Parading the Torah
Once the Torah is removed, the leader holds the Torah in front of the community and leads the community in chanting the central doxologies of Jewish faith, “Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one” (Deuteronomy 6:4), “One is our God, great is our Lord, holy is His name,” and “Proclaim the Lord’s greatness with me; let us exalt God together” (Psalms 34:4). As the Torah is then paraded around the sanctuary, the congregation sings a series of verses from I Chronicles 29:11 and Psalm 99:5 and 9, which state, “Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the splendor. Yours is the triumph and the majesty…Exalt the Lord and worship God, for He is holy…” These verses are intended to accent the presence of God as concretized in the text of the Torah and the drama of marching the Torah.
The Torah’s Five Books
The English names for each of the Torah’s five book are actually Greek, and like the Rabbinic names for the books, they describe the contents. The common names for the books come from a significant word in the beginning verses of the book. The following are the names of the five books and a brief summary of each (click on them for longer summaries):
Genesis (“Origins”)/Bereishit (“In the Beginning”)
Genesis tells the story of creation, Noah and the flood, and the selection of Abraham and Sarah and their family as the bearers of God’s covenant. Stories of sibling conflict and the long narratives of Jacob and his favorite son Joseph conclude with the family dwelling in Egypt.
Exodus (“The Road Out”)/Shemot (“Names”)
Exodus tells of how the family of Jacob grew and then was enslaved in Egypt. The baby Moses, born of Israelites but adopted by Pharaoh, becomes God’s prophet who, after bringing 10 plagues down upon Egypt, leads the Israelites through the Red Sea to freedom and to the revelation at Mount Sinai. The story of the Israelites worshipping the golden calf, which follows soon after the revelation at Mount Sinai, is almost obscured by lengthy materials on the building of a sanctuary (tabernacle) in the wilderness.
Leviticus (“Laws of the Levites”)/Vayikra (“And God Called”)
Leviticus deals mostly with laws of Israelite sacrificial worship. Related rules include the basis for Jewish dietary laws (kashrut) and issues of purity and impurity. The holiness code, which describes a sanctified communal life, is a highlight of the book.
Numbers (“The Census”)/Bamidbar (“In the Wilderness”)
Numbers begins with a census of the Israelites and the tribe of Levi. A group of Israelites spy out the land of Canaan; their discouraging report sends them back into the desert for an additional 38 years, during which the Israelites continue to behave badly, rebelling against the authority of Moses and his brother Aaron, and having illicit relations with Moabite women.
Deuteronomy (“Second Law”)/Devarim (“Words”)
Deuteronomy is Moses’ final message to the people of Israel before they cross over the Jordan River into Israel. Moses reminds the people of how God has redeemed the people from Egypt and of the details of the covenant between Israel and God. In stark language, Moses describes the rewards for observance of the laws of the covenant and the punishment for disobedience. Finally, Moses passes along his authority to Joshua who will lead the people into the land.

English – Christ and Disciples – Luke 8:1-3
In a little more than a week from now, people all around the world will celebrate the birth of Christ, our Lord and Savior. “And then,” we will move forward to the crucifixion of Christ, and His “resurrection,” which many people incorrectly use the name, “Easter.” However, there is no such day as Easter that correctly relates to the day that Christ was raised from death. Check out the following link for information on the error of using the word Easter to refer to the day that Christ was resurrected. https://equippingblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/saturday-of-holy-weekpassion-week-the-lords-sabbath-dont-say-easter/
Jews celebrate the feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread and Pentecost, as well as some Christians.
Following the resurrection, the ascension of Christ to heaven occurred 40 days later. Ten days later, the Day of Pentecost took place (50 days after the resurrection of Christ). All of these events are discussed in this article, with videos showing how God reacts to each event, “with Great power.” Here is the order of events that we will study in this article: The death of Christ, “and then,” the crucifixion of Christ, the feast of Passover, the feast of Unleavened Bread, the resurrection of Christ, the ascension of Christ, and the Day of Pentecost (where the Holy Spirit fell on Jerusalem).” You will notice that in 2019, the feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread surround the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ (don’t say Easter!).
Good Friday, the day that Christ was crucified, takes place in 2019 on April 19th, prior to sunset.
Consider the information that comes from a Jewish ministry’s web site: Pesach 2019 (Passover) begins at sundown on Friday, April 19, and ends at nightfall on Shabbat, April )27. (Continue with the link)
https://www.chabad.org/holidays/passover/pesach_cdo/aid/671901/jewish/When-Is-Passover-in-2019-2020-2021-and-2022.htm My note: This Jewish site’s information is based on current day Jewish teaching. However, the first day of this time period relates specifically to Passover. The remaining days relate to The Feast Of Unleavened Bread. Today’s Jews consider Passover to be the total time of “the Feast of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.”
The Feast Of Passover for 2019 begins at sunset on April 19 and ends at sunset on April 20.
The Feast Of Unleavened Bread for 2019 begins at sunset on April 20 and ends at sunset on April 27.
Resurrection Sunday for the year 2019 is celebrated on Sunday, April 21st.
Ascension Day in 2019 is celebrated on Thursday, May 30.
Pentecost for the year 2019 is celebrated on Sunday, June 9th.
Jews celebrate the feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread and Pentecost, as prescribed by scripture:
Passover: Leviticus 23:4-5; Exodus 12:1-14; Matthew 16:17-30.
Unleavened Bread: Leviticus 23:5-8; Exodus 12:15-20.
Pentecost: Leviticus 23:15-22; Deuteronomy 16:9-11; Acts 2:1.
Each of these feasts were fulfilled by Christ, as shown in scripture:
Passover: The death of Christ (1 Corinthians 5:7).
Unleavened Bread: The sinlessness of Christ ( 1 Corinthians 5:8).
Pentecost: The outpouring of the Spirit of Christ (Acts 1:5; 2:4).
The opening video shows Christ with followers whom are receiving “on the job training,” as they accompany Christ in His travels, listen to His teachings, and observe the way that He dealt with the people that He encountered.
Prior to the crucifixion of Christ, He and His disciples taught Jews about the good news, “the Gospel of the Kingdom,” which is the time in which Christ will rule and reign the world for a thousand years.
Entry into the Kingdom of God is by the new birth/being born from above: John 3:3 Names of God Bible (NOG)
3 Yeshua replied to Nicodemus, “I can guarantee this truth: No one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.”
Matthew 4:23 Names of God Bible (NOG) Spreading the Good News Of The Kingdom
23 Yeshua went all over Galilee. He taught in the synagogues and spread the Good News of the kingdom. He also cured every disease and sickness among the people.
Following the ascension of Christ to heaven, His disciples and apostles began to teach Jews, “and Gentiles,” about the good news, “the Gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 2:2 New English Translation (NET Bible)
2 For I decided to be concerned about nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB) The Fact of Christ’s Resurrection
1 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; 7 then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; 8 and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.
Luke 8:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Ministering Women
1 Soon afterwards, He began going around from one city and village to another, proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God. The twelve were with Him, 2 and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and sicknesses: Mary who was called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who were contributing to their support out of their private means.
Key events have happened in the world, and “then God!’ Christ was beaten; Christ was crucified, and “then God!” Christ was resurrected and ascended into Heaven, and “then God!” The disciples were in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost, praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit, and “then God!” Consider the power of God as we view video clips that tell of each of these “then God” occurrences.
Matthew 27:26 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS) – The scourging Of Christ
25-26 To this the whole crowd replied, “Let his blood be on us and on our children!” Whereupon Pilate released Barabbas for them, but he had Jesus flogged and handed over for crucifixion.
The Passion of the Christ – The Crucifixion And Resurrection Of Christ
Matthew 27:50-54 New American Standard Bible (NASB) – The Crucifixion Of Christ.
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. 51 And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many. 54 Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!
Matthew 28:1-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB) The Resurrection Of Christ.
1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6 He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7 Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” 8 And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus *said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they will see Me.”
The Passion of the Christ: Crucifixion, Resurrection
Acts 1:6-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB) – The Ascension Of Christ To Heaven
6 So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; 8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” 9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. 11 They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”
A.D. The Bible Continues – Resurrection, Ascension and Pentecost Scenes
Acts 2:1-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB) The Day of Pentecost
1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
5 Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 And when this sound occurred, the crowd came together, and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language. 7 They were amazed and astonished, saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya around Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretans and Arabs—we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God.”

Acts 2:14-36 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Peter’s Sermon
14 But Peter, taking his stand with the eleven, raised his voice and declared to them: “Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give heed to my words. 15 For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only the third hour of the day; 16 but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel:
17 ‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams; 18 Even on My bond slaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit
And they shall prophesy. 19 ‘And I will grant wonders in the sky above And signs on the earth below,Blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. 20 ‘The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood, Before the great and glorious day of the Lord shall come. 21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
22 “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know— 23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. 24 But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power. 25 For David says of Him,
‘I saw the Lord always in my presence; For He is at my right hand, so that I will not be shaken. 26 ‘Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue exulted;Moreover my flesh also will live in hope; 27 Because You will not abandon my soul to Hades, Nor allow Your Holy One to undergo decay. 28 ‘You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of gladness with Your presence.’
29 “Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 And so, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants on his throne, 31 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh suffer decay. 32 This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear. 34 For it was not David who ascended into heaven, but he himself says:
‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, 35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”’
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.”

Del Way – The Old Man Is Dead
2 Corinthians 5:17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
The new creature is our spirit, and is a result of our being born again. Upon our new birth, our old sinful spirit, which previously prompted us to unrighteous living, “passes away.” The Spirit of God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) “takes up residence” within our new-born spirit and begins prompting us to righteous living.
February 3, 1980 is the day that Del Way came to know Christ as his Lord and Savior. On that day Del was faithful to the Word of God in John 3:3.
John 3:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
To be born again is a spiritual event that comes as a result of our belief in Christ as Lord and Savior.
John 3:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
It is through the work of God’s Holy Spirit that anyone is born again.
John 3:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
At the end of anyone’s life, there are two destinies. If a person has a belief in Christ as Lord and Savior, “eternal life” with Christ is one destiny. It is through a belief in Christ as Lord and Savior that anyone can have eternal life with Christ. “Perish” contrasts with “eternal life” and involves an eternal conscious punishment (Mark 9:42-48; Revelation 14:9-11). Those who believe in Christ “have” (present tense) “eternal life” now, even while on earth. (Moody Bible Commentary note).
John 3:18 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
One’s eternal destiny is determined on earth, not in heaven. Anyone who believes in Christ is “not judged” or condemned in a future judgment. Anyone “who does not believe has been judged already,” here and now. The future judgment confirms, but does not determine one’s eternal destiny. (Moody Bible Commentary note).
Those whom have not come to belief in Christ have not been born again; they have already been judged based on their unbelief. However, salvation through a belief in Christ can happen at any time, in anyone’s life, prior to their death; they will not face a future judgment. Unbelievers will stand before the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of the Kingdom Age (millennium) where:
Revelation 20:15 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“…if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Romans 8:1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
Those whom have been born again, through a belief in Christ, will never experience Godly condemnation.
2 Corinthians 5:21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
When Christ was crucified on the cross at Calvary, He took on Him the judgment for sin for everyone whom has ever been born again, and whom will ever be born again. As a result of the sacrificial death of Christ, the spirit of each born again believer in Christ became as pure as the Spirit of Christ. Notice that Christ, “became sin,” and did not become a sinner. He became sin so that He could pay the price of sin’s judgment. Without Christ paying the penalty for sin, none of us would escape an eternity of perishing.
John 19:28-30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, *said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.
Colossians 1:27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
“…Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
It is only through the born again experience, by which the Spirit of Christ takes up residence within the spirit of “the believer in Christ,” that there will be an eternal presence with God for anyone.
Consider eternity for those whom have been born again.
Revelation 21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The New Heaven and Earth
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
22 I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. 25 In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed; 26 and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; 27 and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Revelation 22 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The River and the Tree of Life
1 Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; 4 they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.
Del Way – Calvary’s the Reason why
On February 3, 1980, Del Way believed in Christ as His Lord and Savior, was born again, and experienced the Spirit of God taking up residence within his spirit. On that day, Del Way began experiencing eternal life, with his spirit dwelling with the Spirit of God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). How about you? Through belief, do you know Christ as your Lord and Savior?

Numbers 6:22-27 King James Version (KJV)
The Aaronic Blessing
22 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
Matthew 28:16-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
