Chronological Order

Behar, Bechukotai and Bamidbar preface Shavuos. The order of parshios always takes on significance, especially those close to Matan Torah. All three parshios begin with the letter beis, symbolic of the Torah that begins with the letter beis. More importantly though, Behar signifies the lofty experience of Matan Torah followed by Bechukotai that represents our blind devotion which will ultimately lead us to Bamidbar that hints to us how to behave with the Torah, to reach a state of humility like the desert, where no loftiness is present.
