In this teaching series in Romans, Eddie to reveal Romans in its first century Hebraic context with a Torah perspective.
What Paul lays out in Romans is consistent with the Torah and the Prophets. In Romans, he gives the application for the principles found in the Torah, applying it to faith in Yeshua the Messiah and His redemptive work when He died on the tree. Our confession is that Yeshua IS our salvation (Romans 10: 9, Isaiah 12:2) The righteousness and the salvation that Yeshua offers us is for both Jew and non-Jew.
We see this in Acts 10: 34-35:
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.” Paul gives an example of salvation by faith by pointing us to Abraham. Paul teaches from the Torah and points us to Abraham (in Romans 4: 10-13) that Abraham was saved/justified by faith while he was still uncircumcised. His righteousness was not something of the flesh but his righteousness was from his heart, that He trusted in the Lord and had faith in the Lord’s promises.
