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 7 –

Romans 7:1 Know you not, Yisraelite brothers, for I speak to them that know the Torah (whole body of the written law) , how that the law  (BoL was given to man) has dominion over a man as long as he lives?

Romans 7:2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law (BoL ruling on marriage – Deuteronomy 24, that part of the Torah that deals with rights and duties of the husband – BoL)  to her husband so long as he lives; but if the husband is dead, she is loosed from the law (BoL ruling of Deuteronomy 24.) of her husband.

  • V.2 – ’Gamos’/‘marriage’  Versus ‘hupandros gune’/‘married woman.’
  • ‘Gamos’ is the common word for marriage used in the Brit, whereas Paul uses ‘gune hupandros’, its only usage in the NT to communicate, ‘under a burden’, or ‘under bondage – literally: ‘a woman under a husband.’
  • In Numbers 5:20/ LXX we find the same word used to describe a wife’s unfaithfulness and adultery ‘hup andros’ – a woman who’s gone a whoring; astray from her husband.

The ‘law of the husband unarguably deals with a sector of Torah that Israel,  once bound to,  is now released.

The ‘law of the husband’, within the BoL is in place because of a condition of presumed sin and guilt on the part of the bride, where the bride faces the cursing penalties for her violation of the marriage.

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.

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.
