What is Shabbat?

Shabbat is the seventh day of the week beginning Friday evening and ending Saturday evening as it has been from the beginning of Creation:

 

On the seventh day God was finished with his work which he had made, so he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. God blessed the seventh day and separated it as holy; because on that day God rested from all his work which he had created, so that it itself could produce. B’resheet (Genesis) 2:2-3

What is a Parasha?

The Hebrew word Parasha means "Portion". During the Babylonian captivity the Jewish Sages divided the five books of Moshe (Moses) into 54 Portions (Parashot). Each portion was then read Sabbath by Sabbath in the synagogues, a custom that has stood the test of time and is being followed even today. Messianic Congregations have also connected the New Testament into the reading.
