The Church has prospered over the past 2000 years. Clearly God has blessed the Christian Church in many ways. For those in the Torah movement, a common question is often heard. “If the Torah isn’t done away with, how did the Church miss it?” Or perhaps another way it is said is, “how can 2000 years of Christianity be wrong?” In this article, Tim Hegg takes this question head on. Hegg shows the problems with the idea that the Church can be spoken of as a monolithic group. As a result, Hegg contends that if this line of reasoning were true, then the reformation would also need to be questioned.
In our modern times, many believers are coming to the realization that they should be keeping Torah. Friends and family usually have a huge problem with such a claim. Those who oppose such a view would say believers are not obligated to keep the Torah. But are they right? In this article Hegg suggests we are honored and blessed to keep the covenant God shares with us and in conclusion, that obeying God is an obligation which flows from love for those who have experience God’s love for them in Yeshua.
Matthew 5:17-20 gives to us the clear teaching of Yeshua Himself regarding the Torah. These verses are often referenced when discussing believers and the Torah. Are Torah pursuant believers missing something? Hegg looks at this passage line by line to gain a better understanding.
