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?

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.

Are the concepts of grace and mercy only found in the New Testament? Shaul/Paul ties into the linguistic connection of mercy to corporate Israel and the biblical prophecy made by Hoshea/Hosea. Israel will be regathered and united under a Melchizedek High Priest, Yahusha!

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – “All about the Ruach/Spirit”

Join us as we test the traditional understandings of the nature of the Ruach/Spirit against the whole of Scripture and the truth of the text.

Do you bear the Root, or is the Root bearing you? What Yahuwah planted one Israel that became two nations through division and eventually both nations were laid bare before all the nations, as branches both natural and unnatural or cultivated and uncultivated were cut off. Regardless of what type of branch we are, if we are not connected to the root of that tree which is Messiah, we wither and die.

Have you come into the community? Despite current popular doctrines, a walk of faith is not simply “me and Jesus”. Shaul/Paul sides with Yahusha in gathering believers together for corporate unity under Messiah. Division becomes a byproduct of a person being called into the Israel of Elohim.

Who are the people of Yah? Shaul/Paul understood that there was a seamless priestly garment that was a covering for all of Israel. One Messiah, One Covenant, One People. Yahuwah will prune and graft in, but will always be focused on the branches of Isreal, rooted in Yahusha.

Does your zealousness for the Father and His Torah cause you to lose discernment when it comes to the Son? On its own, Torah will not lead us to total righteousness. Only covenant relationship through Yahusha will allow us to enter into forensic righteousness before Yahuwah.
