Paul and Torah. In A Paul was accused of not following the Torah. Was this really true? What was his response? In his letters, was Paul for or against the Torah? The answer may surprise you. Listen in as Eddie delves into the letters of Paul to discover the answers to these questions.   The Apostle Paul wrote the Book of Romans to a special group of individuals possessing unique spiritual attributes. Can you identify who they were? Contrary to conventional Christian wisdom, there are two unique things the Berean should know about the so-called Roman Church: (1) It was not established by the Apostle Paul. And (2) it was strictly a Gentile congregation. In this installment, we.   Paul and the Torah by Lloyd Gaston, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Paul taught the Gentile believers to follow the Law of Moses (the Torah). Paul did not teach people to observe the law in order to be saved or justified. That was not the purpose of the law. He taught them to observe the law in order to honor God as they walked out the Christian life in the footsteps of their.

Torah (/ ˈ t ɔːr ə, ˈ t oʊ r ə /; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, "Instruction", "Teaching" or "Law") has a range of can most specifically mean the first five books (Pentateuch or five books of Moses) of the 24 books of the Hebrew is commonly known as the Written can also mean the continued narrative from all the 24 books, from the Book of Genesis to the end of. Throughout the remainder of the book of Acts, Paul continues to state that the accusation leveled against him is false. He says in Acts "Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me." No one had a shred of evidence that Paul had ever taught against the Torah much less stopped practicing the Torah. In their simplest form, the twenty-four books of the Jewish Bible – the Tanach – present a history of the first years from creation until the building of the second Temple in Jerusalem. The books also relate the history of the Jewish nation from its earliest stage, through the giving of the Law at Mount Sinai, and until the end of the first commonwealth.   Pentateuch (πεντάτευχος): This is the Greek name, which means "five scrolls." Torah (תּוֹרָה): Although Judaism has both a Written Torah and an Oral Torah, the term "Torah," meaning "to guide/teach" is used across the board to refer to the first five books of the greater Jewish canon known as Tanakh, which is an acronym for Torah, Nevi'im (prophets), and Ketuvim (writings).

In response to Paul’s criticisms on the Jewish insistence on the literality of the Torah and her Law, on the concealment of God’s Love in favor of the Letter of the Torah, Jews choose on Purim to mask their bodies, and their Torah, and thus to believe in a revelation within concealment. The book of Acts says that the number of believing Jews was tens of thousands and that they were all zealous for the Law. On several occasions, Paul asserted his Hebrew heritage and his Torah background. Paul was a Torah trained disciple of Gamaliel, a devout Pharisee. Paul never went against Yeshua's teachings, nor did he forsake the Torah. The following article shows that Paul's declarations have either been misunderstood, mistranslated, or wrongly interpreted - not to mention, used by some Gentile churches as an excuse to negate God's Torah and thus continue the age-old, anti-Semitic stance against the Jews.
