What are the “ergon nomou/works of the law”? How we answer this question will determine how we enter into a covenant relationship with Yahusha.  His blood and the zenith of His righteousness allows us to return to Covenant Torah. Will we be faithful and walk in His commandments?

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 3 –

Romans 3:1What advantage then has the Jew? Or, what profit is there in circumcision? 2 Much in every way: primarily, because they were the first to be entrusted with the oracles of vuvh and the first to believe in His word. 3 For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief nullify faith in vuvh?

Paul is juxtaposing:

•    Stewardship & ownership

•    Responsibility & possession.

The Jews had become prideful in their view of ownership and possession. They believed, erroneously that they owned the entrance rights to the covenant in their bodies (circumcision) and that the Torah was their sole possession.

Romans 3:4 By no means: yes, let vuvh be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That You might be proven tzadik/righteous byYour words, and triumph when You judge.

Shaul uses the word tzadik/righteous he uses it in three different ways; 1. forensically, 2. nationally and 3. individually:

  1. Forensically – only Yahusha can make us forensically righteous (close inspection, inspection of our souls).
  2. Nationally – covenant entrance into יהוה s nation brought about a community or national righteousness.
  3. Individually – biblical conduct and ethics, shunning evil and choosing a life dedicated to service and obedience brings about a halacha/walk of righteousness.

Romans 3:5 But if our unrighteousness establishes the tzedakah of vuvh, 6 what shall we say? Is vuvh unrighteous when He inflicts wrath? I speak as a man. 6 By no means: for then how shall He judge the olam hazeh?

….of course, this is human logic and reasoning.

If יהוה doesn’t judge them then how can he judge the nations?

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.

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 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.

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.

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!
