It also answers questions about sexual relationships, polygamy, marriage, and divorce, financial obligations, investment, tithing, and charity. Study biblical poetry, narrative, midrash, and New Testament interpretation with a literary approach to Torah study. Examine apostolic interpretations of Torah and compare them with rabbinic thought.

Devotional, inspirational, and unapologetically Messiah-centered, Depths of the Torah offers practical applications for Torah-living for both Jews and Gentile believers.
