    IBR Ep 105- Parsha Shelach- Sending Grasshoppers
    Parsha Shelach is packed with events, beginning with the sending of the spies. While there are many questions that surround this event, our topic today is going to focus on one phrase of the ten spies about grasshoppers. We can't help but compare and contrast ourselves with these spies and how we see ourselves affects how we walk with God.

    IBR Ep 104- So Shavuot…Now What?
    Shavuot often doesn't get it's fair share of attention. How often do we celebrate it and move on to the next festival? Just because it's a one day festival doesn't mean it lacks importance and relevance and isn't worthy of our complete and total attention and observance. Shavuot's impacts should also be realized each and every day following, way into the future.

    IBR Ep 101- Parashat Emor- More Than Just Holidays
    This week, we share a throw-back teaching on Parashat Emor from 2018. We often, much like the traditions we come from, focus on only a few “pet” Scriptures. These tend to be things about dietary laws, calendar, and the Name. In this teaching, we invite you to look past those Scriptures that are familiar and easy in order to gain broader wisdom from the Torah.

    Let’s face it, by the end of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, most of us are ready to be done and can’t wait to sink our teeth into a big, doughy pizza.

In this episode we’ll discuss the meal and what it could mean to us.

    IBR Ep 96- Parashat Sh’mni
    Parsha Sh’mini is a beautiful picture of the ultimate purpose of Scripture and the heart of God. In our everyday lives, we are on the constant cycle, some may say hamster wheel, of work days and weekends. We deal with the stresses of life all while longing for the rest of the weekend. In parsha Sh’mini, we see the concept of the eighth day, a day that connotes a continuation of the peace and completeness we find in the Shabbat.

    IBR Ep 95- Parashat Vayikra- The Call
    For so many Christians, we are obsessed with God’s call. This desire, while admirable, is often misplaced. Oddly, we spend our entire lives seeking God’s call, while never reading the book of Scripture titled, “He called”. In this week’s parsha, Vayikra, we are challenged by the first two words…”He called”.

    Parsha Mishpatim begins by speaking about Hebrew slaves (Ebed Ivrit). How are we to understand this concept?
