In this torah portion we are introduced to strange rites that provokes the question, “Who can render something pure from something that is impure?” This is the prevailing theme of the parsha, Chukat. In the ritual of the Red Heifer and again in the Brazen Serpent, we see a paradox that has intrigued Bible students for centuries. Fortunately for those in Messiah Y’shua, we can clearly see how He is the personification of these tokens of salvation and deliverance. Still, the parsha has much to offer in the way of provoking thought and still more questions. (Approximately 90 minutes).
