Here are the questions I used on Shabbat

Va’era 14

Q. What does todays parsha title have in common with another one from B’resheet?
A. Parashah 4 is called Vayera meaning, ‘He appeared’, today’s form is ‘I appeared’

Q. What was the name that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew G-d by?
A. They knew him as El Shaddai

Q. What does El Shaddai mean?
A. It means G-d Almighty, but the hebrew word Shad means breast and it implies that Shaddai signifies one who nourishes, supplies, and satisfies. It is God as El who helps, but it is God as Shaddai who abundantly blesses with all manner of blessings.

Q. What covenant did He establish with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? And why does HaShem meantion it here?
A. The covenant for the land of Kanann 4

Q. What four things did HaShem tell Moses to tell the people he would do for them?
A. 1. I will free you from the slavery of the Egyptians
2. I will rescue you from their oppression
3. I will redeem you with an outstreatched arm and great judgements
4. I will take you as my people , and I will be your G-d.

Q. How are these related to what Messiah Yeshua did for us?
1. Freed from being slaves to sin
2. Took away our oppression from that burden of sin
3. Redeemed us by the tree by stretching out his arms and dying and great judgements fell on those who did it ( Yeshua uses this imagery to tell Kefa of his death john 21:18 ( someone read)
