In this week’s teaching, Ross bases his class on Torah Reading Pinchas. This reading focuses on what is called the Matter of Peor. Ross works through various texts in the Torah, Prophets, and Writings that shed light on the matter of Peor. He covers the Hebrew meaning of the word Qanah, which is translated as jealous at times and zealous at other times. We learn that Pinchas was a zealot, but Ross shows that more is required than zeal.
