Bits of Torah Truths – Yeshua wore Tzitzit – Episode 13

Matthew 9:20
9:20 Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, (NLT)

Bamidbar / Numbers 15:38
לח דַּבֵּ֞ר אֶל־בְּנֵ֤י יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֲלֵהֶ֔ם וְעָשׂ֨וּ לָהֶ֥ם צִיצִ֛ת עַל־כַּנְפֵ֥י בִגְדֵיהֶ֖ם לְדֹרֹתָ֑ם וְנָ֥תְנ֛וּ עַל־צִיצִ֥ת הַכָּנָ֖ף פְּתִ֥יל תְּכֵֽלֶת׃

Speak unto the children of Israel and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue. (KJV) Traditional interpretation of the woman’s actions has been that of a desperate woman who wanted healing so badly that she touched the hem of Yeshua’s garment. The actual Aramaic word was not “hem” but “edge” which referred to the “borders” or kanaf of “garments” (beged), which is where “fringes” or “tassels” (tzittzit) are placed (Numbers 15:38-39). Yeshua, like all other Torah observant Jews, wore a tallit with tzittzit as a reminder to keep the Commandments of God. The Hebrew word kanaf is also found in Malachi 4:2 “…with healing in his kanaf (wings)…” Wings here refer to the tallit; they are not actual “wings.” See also Zechariah 8:23.
