Why We Keep Torah: 10 Persistent Questions
Something phenomenal is happening in our times: many people who confess Yeshua (Jesus) to be their Messiah and Savior are awakening to the spiritual treasures contained in the Torah (the books of Moses, or Genesis through Deuteronomy). While in the history of the Christian Church the Torah has been more or less considered obselete and as having little or no application to the life of a believer in Yeshua, many are questioning this view and studying the Torah for themselves. What they are discovering is that Yeshua Himself, as well as His Apostles, lived Torah observant lives that living out the commandments of the Torah is not contrary to a genuine faith in Yeshua as one Savior and only means by which a sinner may be made righteous before God. A return to keeping the Sabbath, celebrating the yearly Festivals, and aligning one lifestyle with the standards outlined by the Torah has been the result. Clearly, this return to Torah has not always been warmly received by the Christian Church and her leaders. Strong debates have ensued, and very often the same texts of Scripture are brought to the table as proof that the Torah has been abolished or substantially changed by the coming of Yeshua, and that those who confess Him as their Lord and Savior not only have no obligation to obey the commandments of Torah, but are to be warned away from incorporating such antiquated commandments into their lives.
In "Why We Keep Torah: 10 Persistent Questions," Tim Hegg selects 10 of these questions most often raised against Torah observance and seeks to answer them by a study of the Scriptures within their historical and cultural background, seeking to let the text itself speak on its own terms.
  • Chapters and Audio sessions include
  • 1. Didn't Yeshua Declare All Foods Clean? (Mark 7:19)
  • 2. If We're to Keep the Torah, What About Animal Sacrifices?
  • 3. If Yeshua and His Apostles Changed the Sabbath to Sunday, Doesn't That Prove That the Torah Has Been Done Away With?
  • 4. Doesn't Paul Dismiss the Torah's Laws About Food, Festivals, New Moons, and Sabbaths in Colossians 2?
  • 5. In Peter's Vision (Acts 10), Didn't God Make it Clear that there was No Longer any Need to Keep the Food Laws of the Torah?
  • 6. Paul Make it Clear that we are "Not Under the Law." Doesn't that mean that we are no longer required to keep Torah?
  • 7. If Paul abolished the commandment of circumcision, doesn't that prove that the Torah has been abolished?
  • 8. Didn't the Jerusalem council (Acts 15) make it clear that the Torah was only for the Jewish people?
  • 9. Wasn't the Torah given to condemn sinners and not for a guide to live righteously? (1 Tim 1:8; Gal. 3:19)
  • 10. Didn't God abolish the ceremonial and civil parts of the Torah, requiring of us only the moral laws?
