The Page for “Daily Davar” our Bible-In-A-Year Scripture Reading Schedule

Most days are pretty ordinary. You get up, do a few exercises, daven (pray), eat a little breakfast, and march on.

But life is punctuated with occasional great moments, too!

Your wedding day.

Bringing your first baby home from the hospital.

Heading to the airport for that first trip to Israel.

In this week’s Daily Davar readings we encounter one of those great moments in our collective journey through history.

I’m thinking about the episode recorded in the Book of Acts chapters 10 and 11. You’ll read about Kefa (Peter), who had matured greatly since his earlier betrayal of Messiah Yeshua. He is now one of the pillars of the earliest Messianic Jewish community. You’ll read about a profound vision he had received while praying alone on a rooftop—such space being a common architectural convention in those days. You’ll read about how his understanding of the Next Step in God’s Plan for Planet Earth was about to take a quantum leap forward.

You will be introduced to Cornelius, another very admirable character, this time a gentile Roman military officer. For years he had worshiped the God of Israel and was a true friend to the Jewish community in his area.

You’ll be tempted to think that the encounter between these two men resulted in a trivializing of Jewish commitment to kashrut, the Jewish regulations regarding food. But this was not the case, because what is truly embedded in Kefa’s strange vision is a world-changing message about unity and diversity. It is a message that even goes beyond a new and improved relationship between Israel and the nations. It is a vision for how relationships among nations today could be re-imagined for the good of all.

Enjoy this week’s Daily Davar readings! Like taking vitamins daily, over time you’ll experience some of the spiritual health you desire just by spending 12-15 minutes each day in God’s Word.

Warmly,

Rabbi Rich
