What is going on with the book of Ivrim/Hebrews? Is it a Pauline epistle? A confirmation of the end of the Law of Moshe/Moses? Damage control from a Jewish ministry, trying to reconcile the outbreak of a highbrow Messianic/Christian Judaism combination? One of the most pro Torah texts in all of the Brit Chadasha/New Testament, the lens with which we use to view this text will drastically impact the context we give it.

Hebrews Hebraically – Intro

Teaching the Book of Hebrews: I’m familiar with four approaches that have been taken with the book of Hebrews in recent times.

  1. the traditional Christian approach (let me explain: Calvary Chapel on the law of Moses)…….the pastor used Hebrews 9:13, “ a (new covenant), He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.” The traditional Christian church doesn’t acknowledge that “covenant” is in italics in numerous places and thus mistakes the fundamental mistake of thinking the “Law of Moses or Old Covenant is passing away when in reality the Aaronic “Priesthood” is passing away and in its place the more glorious Malki- Tzedik.
  2. one prominent Messianic teacher denying the inspiration of Hebrews and calling the writer a liar which ended up with him invalidating the book of Hebrews based upon the MS reading of the text whilst ignoring the LXX which could have cleared things up nicely.
  3. Another teacher countering that argument with the now classic “Unjust Hacking of Hebrews.”
  4. Jewish ministry trying to do damage control over the whole Hebrews debacle and coming out with a high brow Christian/ Messianic Jewish combination which was interesting indeed.

In light of us awakening to the Malki Tzedik priesthood with its distinction between the agreed to Torah contained in the Book of the Covenant and the imposed carnal commandments contained in the Book of the Law, there is no better time for me to tackle this most important of texts that will impact our life, ‘today if you will hear his voice.”

Theme:

One of the most pro Torah texts in the entire New Testament/ Brit Chadasa. Let’s be clear, the ministry of the Brit Chadasha initiated by Yeshua’s priesthood is a better ministry than that of the first covenant.
The Book of Hebrews and it’s references to ‘1st’ and ‘new’ covenant and laws. Only the covenants and laws mediated through Moshe were instructed to all 12 tribes and included a covering for sin.
Only the New Covenant is instructed to all 12 tribes and is mediated by Yeshua for the removal of sin.
There is the juxtaposition of priesthoods. One priesthood is set aside for the higher order of another, Levi for Malki-tzedik. There are only two mediated realms that deal with blood covering for all 12 tribes with a priesthood.

Very important:

The principal TaNaKh/Old Testament quotations in the Brit Chadasha/ New Testament are NOT isolated proof texts, but carry their contexts with them by implication (so, in quoting Ps. 45.7/8 in V.8/9 the context of deity in the Psalm is meant to be placed squarely on the shoulders of Yeshua).

2 Corinthians 3:7 But if the administration of death, written and engraved in stones, was full of so much tifereth, that b’nai Yisrael could not behold the face of Moshe for the tifereth of his countenance; which tifereth was not lasting: 8 Why then should not the administration of the Ruach be with even more tifereth? 9 For if the administration of condemnation was with tifereth, much more does the administration of tzedakah exceed in tifereth.

Keeping it simple:

Yeshua died for our sins not so wouldn’t have to keep the .יהוה commandments like, Sabbath, the dietary commandments and the Feasts of יהוה.

He’s our eternal sacrifice, priesthood and temple!
Reconciliation to יהוה were accomplished by these three things!

These were the objects of atonement for sin, fulfilled and thus transferred to the highest order by Yeshua.

Keeping Shabbat, observing the Feasts and keeping the dietary requirements and so on, had noting to do with atonement for sin. He did NOT end these commandments!
Now, if on the other hand you look to animal sacrifices, a Levitical priesthood and another Jewish temple – then that’s when your encroaching upon the blood of Yeshua and putting His sacrifice, priesthood and temple to an open shame!

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Intro

Romiyah/Romans is the most influential letter ever written and have impacted theology, politics, civil law, and church doctrine in the West.

Unlocking Galatians Hebraically – Intro

Are you walking in freedom? In the Institutionalized Church, Galutyah/Galatians is used to justify a Christian’s severance from the law of Moshe/Moses. Is this truly the intent of the epistle, divided from the rest of Scripture? Some have found the text to be so problematic that they reject Shaul/Paul altogether. Join us, as we study Galutyah/Galatians!

The Hebraic Epistle of First John – Intro

Are you on the narrow path? The Yochanan/Johannine Epistles are an exposition of those who have gone out from us on the narrow Melchizedek Path, into the esoteric wisdom of men.
