How will we be judged, with or without the law? Shaul/Paul makes the distinction for judgment that correlates with the prophets and the revelation to Yochannan/John. All will be judged according to the books and what is written in them, but only those in the Book of the Covenant will be blotted out of the Book of Works.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 2 –

Those who possessed the law (Torah); the Jewish people were led astray in the belief that their possession of Torah; and knowledge of it’s intricate codes, laws and circumcision rites –  that this somehow gave them special privileges and standing before The Creator!

The Jewish pride in the law obscured the degree to which the Jews failed to do the law.

Romans 2:1Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judges: for in your judgment of another, you condemn yourself; because you who judge do the same things. 2 But we are sure that the judgment of vuvh is according to truth against those who commit such things. 3 And do you really think, O man, that judges them who do such things, and do the same, that you shall escape the
judgment of vuvh?

Shaul’s words of course come from the Pseude pigrapha, Psalms of Solomon 15:8 “But they shall pursue sinners and overtake them, for those who act lawlessly shall not escape YHWH’s judgment.”

Today Jewish pride of their view of their place in the world to come is prevalent because of texts like Sanhedrin 10:1: “all Israel, even those executed by the court for their sins have a portion in the World to Come.”

Romans 2:4 Or, do you stand against the riches of His mercy and tolerance and patience; by not knowing that the mercy of vuvh can lead you to repentance? 5 But after your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up for yourself great wrath against the day of His wrath and the revelation of the righteous judgment of vuvh; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds.

Romans 2:7 To them who by continuing patiently in well doing seek for glory, honor, immortality and eternal life: 8 But to those that are contentious against the truth, and do not obey the truth, but actually obey unrighteousness, will come indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every being that does evil, upon the Jew first, and also upon the Greek and Aramean;

Romans 2:10 But glory, honor, and shalom, to every man that does good works, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek and Aramean:

Romans 2:11 For there is no partiality with vuvh. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law. (No ‘hupo nomon’ ‘under the law’ in the text.)

Here, it becomes obvious that two groups of people are in view:

  1. The ‘Hosoi gar anomos hemarton, anomos kai apolountai.’ For as many as without law did sin, without law also shall perish.’
  2. The ‘Kai hosoi en nomo hemarton, dia nomou krithesontai.’ ‘And as many as did sin in law, through law shall be judged.’

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 7

How can an adulteress bride return to her husband? Shaul/Paul uses his intimate knowledge of Torah to help the audience awaken to the reality of redemption through Yahusha. If we interpret the verses without a proper knowledge of Torah, we run the risk of creating a false dichotomy between law and grace.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 8 – Part 1

Which “law” do you prefer; the “law of sin and death” or “the law of the Spirit of Life”? As there is then, now, no condemnation for those who are in Messiah, we are free to walk as Abraham did, in Royal Covenant Torah. Only through Yahusha’s blood ratification, can we return to Torah that transforms our inward man, leading us to right action.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 6

What does ‘under the law’/‘hupo nomon’ really mean? Traditional approaches to the text have resulted in doctrine that is not consistent with the context of the whole of Scripture. If we reject Yahusha’s inauguration of the New Covenant, we bind ourselves to the curses that are contained in the Book of the Law. Grace cannot be divorced from it’s inception point, national covenant blessing.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 5

Is Torah synonymous with The Law of Moses? Limiting out understanding of these terms cannot be limited to the first five books of the Bible. Rabbinical tradition inherited by the Institutional Church has created a paradigm that has impacted our ability to rightly divide Scripture. Shaul/Paul admonishes us to seek a better reconciliation; by covenant, through the blood of Yahusha.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 4

Whose faith do you want to have? Shaul/Paul understood that mere adherence to a set of standards was not congruent with faith in Messiah. Salvation is not determined by works, heritage, tradition, or a single prayer you utter. As we are called from the nations to return to being biblical Israel, it is the faith and fidelity of our father, Abraham, which we must have.

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!
