The 4 Levels of the Study of the Torah
The Torah is divided into four levels of teaching. They are: P’shat, Drash, Remez and the Sod. Brief explanations are below:
The P’shat level is the plain sense of the text. What does it actually say. Every word, phrase, and thought has a meaning, there is no word that is redundant or idle. Even if it appears to be, it is not. It is filled with meaning for us to learn.
The Drash level is where truth and principle are presented. Truth can only be truth if it is confirmed. Confirmation as we know must come in the form of evidence and evidence must be at least two or three witnesses.
The Remez level is the underlying theme or story that is told while speaking of other things. It is how prophecy is laid into the story of history. This level shows the plan for Yashua’s redemption and restoration.
The Sod level is the mysterious and coded level. This involves the understanding of numbers along with the meaning associated with certain numerical values. For example, the number 1 represents "Echad" or Oneness, "Two" represents struggle, division or witness, etc. This level also involves the meanings of names.
