Who would not want God's blessing in their lives? One of the disciples of Simon Peter, Clement of Rome, advised the believers in Corinth to consider how they might lay hold of God’s blessing. His letter to the Corinthians is not a part of the Bible, but it provides an important glimpse of the first century believers. He said, “Let us unroll the things which have taken place from the beginning”. What does he mean when he says “unroll the things”? He was referring to the scroll of the Torah. In those days, books were not bound. They were rolled in scrolls. In the synagogue, the Torah is still read from a scroll. When we unroll a Torah scroll, the first thing we read is the stories that “have taken place from the beginning.” So, we are advised to study the Torah in order to take hold of God’s blessing for our lives. All of the forefathers “were blessed in everything, from everything and with everything.” We all have the potential to walk in the same blessing as our spiritual forefathers if we will learn from the example of their lives. That is why we are advised to “unroll” the scroll and study the Torah. Finally, let’s look intently into the Torah’s words, understand them well, and meditate upon them frequently.
