Should believers allow culture to dictate our faith? Our desire for comfortability can impact the ability of the Holy Spirit to convict us and disregard Yahuwah’s instruction in favor of adopting moral relativity. We need to embrace foundational truths that cultivate a family life of mutual submission to Yah.

Ephesians Hebraically - Chapter 5

by Matthew Nolan | Ephesians Hebraically

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 5

Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of Elohim, as dear children;
Ephesians 5:2  And walk in love, as Messiah also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to Elohim for a sweet smelling savour.

The Torah of first mention for the Greek word ‘thusia’ ‘sacrifice’ in the LXX is referring to the Passover ‘sacrifice’ – Paul again uses ‘thusia’ in its prophetic fulfillment relating to the priestly family of Messiah.

Psalms 40:6 LXX; Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not; but a body hast thou prepared me: whole-burnt-offering and sacrifice for sin thou didst not require.

Ephesians 5:3  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Sin by proxy or voyeurism.
Ephesians 5:4  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Ephesians 5:5  For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Messiah and of Elohim.

In the Hellenistic world gross sexuality was directly involved with the worship of the deity; so is therefore coupled with idolatry and greed. DSS: 1QS 10:21 in my mouth shall be heard neither foolishness nor sinful deceit, neither fraud nor lies shall be discovered between my lips. Rather; the fruits of holiness will be upon my tongue – abominations will not be found thereon.

Ephesians 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of Elohim upon the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:7  Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Ephesians 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Master: walk as children of light:
Ephesians 5:9  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Ephesians 5:10  Proving what is acceptable unto the Master.
Ephesians 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Ephesians 5:12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Preaching moral relativity by default from the pulpit because you’ve kicked; not only Yah’s torah but even the moral law to the curb.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 1

How does Paul view the 1st Century church at Ephesus? In the opening of his letter, Paul draws on connective language that harkens to the days of Israel’s past. The clarion call remains the same today, to leave behind pagan practice and come into holy covenant living.

Ephesians Hebraically – Intro

Who were the Ephesians? As we begin our study of the text, we examine the historical and cultural climates for Ephesus, as well as the nature of authorship and theme of the letter.Through spiritual maturity and an indwelling of the Ruach, we move from doctrine and reasoned argument, to doxology and prayer.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 3

What is a “dispensation of grace”? Paul communicates a mystery to the congregation at Ephesus that still puzzles believers today. Being under grace is not being free from he commandments of Yahuwah. Grace and mercy have their foundations in Yahuwah’s Torah, not the New Testament.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 2

What is the relationship of non-Jewish believers to the commonwealth of Israel? Paul writes expressly to all believers to let them know that the dividing wall has come down. The removal of the wall is the finished work of Yahusha and it is our jobs, as believers, to determine what the dividing wall is and what it is not.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 4 • Part 2

Did we miss something? We backtrack to finish chapter 4, Paul continues to instruct from the Tanakh to teach the Ephesians that incorporation into the Commonwealth of Israel brings with it an expectation of obedience to Yahuwah’s Torah and setting aside of non biblical pagan customs. If Israel’s chief undoing was syncretism, we will not fare any different in an economy of grace.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 6

Are you prepared for spiritual warfare? Paul admonishes us to put on the armor of Yahuwah so that we might stand up to the principalities, fallen elohim from the divine council that became the gods of the nations and adversaries against man. When believers don this armor, we are truly able to stand against the wiles of these gods.

Ephesians Hebraically – Chapter 4 • Part 1

What keeps a congregation from having an effective ministry? When Yahuwah calls and blesses us with privileges, it becomes our responsibility to be found worthy of that calling. It is our duty to walk out the commandments and instructions of our Heavenly Father, laying down the traditions that have been adopted by our forefathers so that we can step into our roles.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Intro

Romiyah/Romans is the most influential letter ever written and have impacted theology, politics, civil law, and church doctrine in the West. Classical approaches to this epistle have started Reformations and used to support misogyny. What if our approach to Shaul/Paul’s letter has been wrong? Join our study, as we leave behind traditional interpretations, in favor of the truth of the original language and the context of the whole of Scripture!

Unlocking Galatians Hebraically – Intro

Are you walking in freedom? In the Institutionalized Church, Galutyah/Galatians is used to justify a Christian’s severance from the law of Moshe/Moses. Is this truly the intent of the epistle, divided from the rest of Scripture? Some have found the text to be so problematic that they reject Shaul/Paul altogether. Join us, as we study Galutyah/Galatians!
