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 15 –

Romans 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Romans 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbor for his tov and edification.
Romans 15:3 For even Moshiach pleased not Himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached You fell on Me.

We have to be careful of the value judgments of translators in v. 1.

‘Ton adunaton’ ‘the weak’  or ‘the powerless’  speaks to those who’s conciences are ‘seared’ ‘sensitive in conscience,’ it has more to do with how we react together within community.

In summation;  we all have a responsibility to one another within the faith to be sensitive of the concurrence and sensitivities of one another if we’re ever to build a community.

Romans 15:4 For all things which were written in the Tanach were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Holy Scriptures/Keetvay HaKadosh might have hope! 

Ton graphon’ without doubt is referring to the Old Testament and the Law of Moses!

Romans 15:5 Now the tvkt of patience and comfort, grant you the ability to regard one another with equal worth according to Moshiach gauvh: 

Romans 15:6 That you may with one mind and one mouth esteem vuvh, even the Abba of our Savior gauvh ha Moshiach.

Exodus 24:3 So Moses came and told the people all the words of יהוה  as well as all the ordinances. All the people answered with one voice/‘qol echad and said, “All the words which יהוה  has spoken, we will do.”…..v.7 He took the Book of the Covenant and read it in the hearing of the people. Again they said, “All that יהוה has spoken, we will do and obey.”

Romans 15:7 Therefore be friendly and bear one another’s burdens, as Moshiach also brought us close to the tifereth of vuvh. 

Where in the Tanakh did the congregation ‘speak in one voice’ ‘qol echad and were ‘brought close to the tifereth of יהוה?’

Exodus 24.9 Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up. 10. They saw the Elohim of Israel, and under His feet was something like a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the very heavens.

Romans 15:8 Now I say that gauvh ha Moshiach was an Eved to Yisrael for the emet of vuvh, to confirm the promises made to our ahvot:

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 2

Can we follow the instruction of Yahuwah and obey the government? All established government is based upon a theocracy, but the elohim being served is not always Yahuwah. As believers in a world that does not value righteousness, we must remain true to Yah, but we must walk a path of maturity, temperance, and self-control, empowered by the Ruach ha’Kodesh/Holy Spirit.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Chapter 14

Do you cause fellow believers to stumble by your eating? Many have used this passage to establish unbiblical precedents. Shaul/Paul is not doing away with the dietary instructions, but rather establishes standards of building a community and whats causes harm to that community. We are command to exhibit faithfulness with our approach to our food, so not as to condemn ourselves with what we allow.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
