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.

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.

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.

What is a woman’s role in the church? Many teach that the Scriptures endorse a silent and subservient while the men lead.

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.
