Dr . Baruch of Loveisrael.org and Ric Joyner of Biblestudycompany.com discuss the topic of law-keeping. Dr. Baruch brings a unique perspective to our discussion, which is the Jewish Context. A biblical study principle is to know who the text is writing to, and an attempt is made to determine how the audience would understand what was said. Dr. Baruch lives in Israel and has a Ph.D. in Jewish studies. He also has Orthodox Rabbinic training.
Some gems Baruch lays out.
1. Judaism is not Torah Observant today. Those who claim to be Torah keeping need to be aware that over 250 "laws" or instructions are related to the Temple being in place. Thus, no one is a true Torah Keeper.
2. There are many versions of Judaism in the US.
3. The "Law" is a unit. If we cannot keep the "law" with no temple in place, the whole law is "broken." We can learn much about spiritual truth from the TORAH, and that should be our focus when studying the Torah.
4. We all must base our doctrine on the Word of God and our study with the Holy Spirit. We should not follow men.
5. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone as Abraham was.
6. In Ephesians 2, the penalty and the debt we owed to God from the Law was paid by our Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.
7. How does Christ fulfill the law? Watch the video or listen.
8. We must be careful not to disparage a group or church in our process or compare ourselves over other Christians. Keep our eyes focused on Christ.
9. Sabbath is a day of rest. We worship God EVERY DAY, ALL DAY.
10. The whole Bible is available to us, and we need to learn how to handle the Word of God rightly.
