Fellow Heirs: Jews & Gentiles Together in the Family of God by Tim Hegg
Fellow Heirs is an investigation of the Scriptures in order to answer the question of “belonging.” The mass of believers, even though distinguished by clear diversity of personal characteristics and heritage, have a singular identity as the children of the King. Tim Hegg shows from the words of Scripture that this is true. And in doing so, it gives a solid foundation for our “belonging.” It is when we understand who we are within the family of God that we are both enabled and emboldened to live in accordance with our identity as God’s children and to embrace the Torah, not as belonging to someone else, but as the King’s gift to all of His children.
