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
– Chapter 11 • Part 1 –

Matthew 15:24 I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Chapter 11. details Israel’s current rebellious status and brings to light a related “gentile problem” that was rearing its ugly head in the congregation after the Edict of Claudius has ended, and Jews were returning to Rome to find the synagogue landscape transformed into a gentile/say believing 10 Israel one; no longer a unregenerate Jewish one.

Some gentiles/Ephraimites were tempted to believe that because most of the Jews had rejected the Gospel, יהוה had rejected them and replaced them with a new people, and a faith not patterned after the Torah.

Paul condemns this thought and in turn brings forth the revelation that was hidden from the Prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 4).

Romans 11:1 I say then, did יהוה cast away His people? By no means. For I also am a Yisraelite, of the seed of Avraham, of the tribe of Benyamin.
Romans 11:2 vuvh has not cast away His people whom He foreknew and chose beforehand. Don’t you know what the Scriptures says of Eliyahu? How he even pleads with vuvh against Yisrael, saying,
Romans 11:3 vuvh, they have killed Your neviim, and overthrown Your altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my chayim.

The majority of theologians draw the faulty conclusion that יהוה has abandoned Israel for a new gentile church, abandoned the OT for the NT and abandoned law for grace.

1 Samuel 12:22 For יהוה will not abandon His people on account of His great name, because יהוה has been pleased to make you a people for Himself.

Psalms 94.14 For יהוה will not abandon His people, nor nor will He forsake His inheritance (Israel YHWH’s inheritance – Psalms 78.71, Isaiah 19.25, Jeremiah 10.16).

Amos 3.2 You (Israel) only have I chosen among all the families of the earth, therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

Punishment by pruning the tree almost bare; devoid of branches – branches are often time symbolic of people in scripture.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 9 – Part 2

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 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.

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 13 • Part 3

Who is the True Lawgiver, man or Yahuwah? Yahuwah’s government looks nothing like the corrupt government of men. We have responsibilities and requirements for stewarding the life that Yahuwah has blessed us with, and we will be required to answer for our decisions. The only true liberty we can ever find is in walking in Royal Covenant Torah.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 16

What is a woman’s role in the church? Many teach that the Scriptures endorse a silent and subservient while the men lead. As the letter to the Romans closes, Shaul/Paul’s final greetings reveal a marvelous hermeneutic truth: leadership in the home and in the congregation is appointed by Yahuwah and His annointing does not recognize gender preference.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 15

Who has been elevated to the priesthood? Shaul/Paul harkens back to language and themes used in Yeshayahu/Isaiah to show that establish the completion of prophecy through Yahusha. Shaul/Paul not only demonstrates that  through Messianic Reformation, the Melchizedek Priesthood was established and the fullness of the Gentiles has come in to serve Yahuwah.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 13 • Part 1

Does Shaul/Paul advocate for blind submission to government authority? The first seven verses of Romans 13 have been used and abused by the Institutional Church to establish religio-political authoritarian positions. Scripture advocates for behavior that is lawful to Yahuwah, refuting tyranny that is a terror to good works.

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.

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.
