Winter Quarter 2019
(January 5th to March 16th)
Weekly Torah Portion
Instructor: Dr. Randy Craig
David, a man described as a man after God’s own heart, said in Psalm 19 that in keeping the Torah there is great reward. In fact, his last comments to Solomon his Son in I Kings 2 exhorted Solomon to walk in God’s ways. He was telling his son that true courage and his future prosperity had to do with obeying the Torah of Moses. In Proverbs 13 his son Solomon later said that the man who revered the commandment would be greatly rewarded. Also, in Proverbs 29 he described the blessing on the man who kept the Torah.
Years later in interacting with the Jewish leadership of His day Yeshua said “You search the scriptures…they testify of me.” (John 5:39) It was apparent that Yeshua was saying that the Torah taught about Him.His teachings are best understood when you understand the Torah context from which he taught.Years later Paul exhorted the followers of Yeshua to “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15).Again, understanding the Torah foundation from which Paul taught enables us to more accurately handle the teachings of Paul and the other apostles. Some of the most frequently misunderstood passages in Romans, Galatians, Hebrews won’t seem so confusing if you have an understanding of their Hebrew context, the foundation of which is the Torah.
INTERMEDIATE HEBREW CLASS PART II
Instructor: Bea Baldridge
Book: The First Hebrew Primer is a simple, straightforward guide to Biblical Hebrew. The book has 30 lessons. The eleven lessons that we will be doing from the book provide enough information and practice to enable you, with the aid of a Hebrew-English dictionary, to understand most biblical texts. The goal of the Primer is to teach students to read and understand Biblical Hebrew as quickly as possible; therefore, the lessons emphasize recognition and translation - not memorization. The eleven lessons incorporate:
* Verb, grammar, and spelling charts
* Vocabulary lists
* Oral reviews
* Biblical quotes
* Learning the Book of Ruth in Hebrew

You must be a Harvest member to take this class. This class also qualifies both men and women to participate in the dance circle during Shabbat Service. The goal is to praise God through dance while building relationships with one another and to grow in diligence and obedience through prayerful dance for the congregation.
Students must be 12 years old by the quarter start date.
THYA (The Harvest Young Adults, ages 18-29)
Instructor: Pastor Joshua Craig
As part of the THYA Ministry, this class seeks to discover the wisdom of the Bible and break it down in a way that is particularly relevant to this stage of life. This class is about going deeper and growing in your relationship with God as you navigate the early years of adulthood. Have you ever asked yourself any of the following questions: What does God want me to do with my life? Does God really speak to me? Do you wonder if the Bible has anything to say about your future, your career, finances or even relationships? What about all the brokenness in the world and social injustices? Where does faith intersect with those concerns? This ministry and this class is a place where you can connect with others your age and who have similar questions. Join us weekly as we come together to learn, fellowship, and celebrate how our lives are changing as we follow Christ, discover His purpose for us, and express our passion for God’s love and the restoration and freedom found through Jesus and His ways.
Youth - Junior and Senior High (ages 12 through 18)
Instructor: Jamie Schmidt
This quarter The Harvest Youth will be continuing to understand the times we live in by looking deeply at the lives of our Biblical predecessors. We will question, challenge and develop our worldview based on the current climate of humanity and apply our faith, wisdom, and reason to strengthen our walk and brighten our paths, so that we may be a light. We encourage you to look forward to and get involved in our fundraising parties for our missions trip and all the other community-oriented events we will be organizing and offering!
