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 6 –

Romans 6:1 What, then, shall we say? shall we continue in the sin that the grace may abound? 2  let it not be! we who died to the sin—how shall we still live in it?

Remember Romans 5.20? ’But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.’
Paul’s question here in 6:1 is prompted by what he’d already laid out earlier in the letter.

The question may arise in some twisted minds that if YHWH’s chên/charis/grace is present in it’s zenith; then maybe we can live in, to some degree or another SIN!

Grace Heb:chên, Gk: charis. Heb related words: gedulah, chalaq, chesed, tov, racham, ratson.

It’s a point that’s clear if we spend time understanding the framework of ‘Chen, Chesed and Charis – Grace!’

Noach found it, but it was יהוה who ratified it into the BoC  – covenants of promise with Abraham. Grace cannot be divorced from its inception point of national covenant blessing to which Paul is speaking!

Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all.

The BoC is faith, it’s the definition of grace, grace so the promises given to Abraham can be given to all, not just to the Jews coming out from the BoL, but to those in the nations who have the faith of Abraham and have crossed over from paganism and idolatry.

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.

What is it that Yahusha has come to redeem? Creation is groaning and Yahuwah intends to wholly reverse the impact of sin. Shaul/Paul understood that there was a threefold linguistic pattern between...

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

The Holy Spirit herself doth testify? We take a pause in our study of Romans to reflect on verses 16 and 17 in the eighth chapter to focus specifically on the Ruach Ha Kodesh/Holy 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.

How should we define biblical Israel? Shaul/Paul draws some distinctions between a physical and spiritual Israel, in order to demonstrate the necessity of an individual to belong to both, to be a fully regenerated Israelite.

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 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.

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 2

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.
