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.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective
– Chapter 10 –

The first century wide scale Jewish rejection of Yahusha causes Paul to write:

Romans 10:1 Yisraelite brothers, my lev’s desire and tefillah to vuvh for Yisrael is, that they might be saved.
Romans 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal (zēlos, Heb. qinah as in Phinneas) for vuvh, but not according to da’at. (epignōsis – to recognize and discern/ Heb. da’at)
Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of vuvh’s tzedakah, go about to establish their own tzedakah, have not submitted themselves to the tzedakah of vuvh.

Their zeal is for Elohim, it’s not some empty pagan fanaticism, but zeal for the One True Living Elohim (therein lies the deception and what sucks so many Messianic’s in).

Their lack of knowledge is twofold:

  1. they lack the knowledge of how יהוה declares a person forensically righteous.
  2. they hold to a means of a righteous status as a people group that יהוה will reject.

The Jews refused to humble themselves and accept YHWH’s righteousness as the undeserved gift it is.

Romans 10:4 For Moshiach is the actual goal of the Torah

‘Telos’ = ‘goal’ to which a movement is being directed – the outcome, not the extinction of, the termination of.

Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, having become avadim to vuvh, you have your fruit to set-apartness, with the end result (telos) being everlasting chayim.

Teleology – a sector of philosophy that deals with goals and outcomes.

For Moshiach is the actual goal of the Torah for an eternal tzadik standing to everyone that believes.
Romans 10:5 For Moshe describes the tzedakah that comes from the Torah: That the man who does those things shall live by them (Leviticus 18:5)

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.

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 11 – Part 1

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.

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.

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 – 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.
