Leviticus Chapter 19

This section of Leviticus is one of the most practical sections in Scripture. These commandments of Elohim are explained in terms of social life and action. Elohim intended His Torah to be demonstrated in the lives of those that believe and trust in Him.

Exodus Chapter 20

When we are delivered out of the slavery of sin, we are no longer to to act as if we are still in that bondage. We are to walk according to Torah in the newness of life.

Romans Chapter 13

Paul is giving the Roman assembly a lesson in Torah. Every person is to be subject to the governing authority (Deut. 17:12, Numbers 15:30-31). All authority is established by Elohim. This is a well established fact of Torah and Tanakh (Prov. 8:15-16, Jer. 27:5-8, Dan. 2:21-22, 4:32).

Romans Chapter 2

Elohim takes HIS time in judgement. He is long-suffering. We need to understand that this trait of long-suffering is what saved you and saved me. If Elohim doesn’t judge others quick enough to suit us, we should be thankful He doesn’t judge you or me quick enough to satisfy someone else.

Matthew Chapter 19

Once again, the Pharisees were trying to put Yeshua on the spot publicly. The dilemma (at least the Pharisees perceived it as a dilemma) is that Elohim says He hates divorce (Mal. 2:14-16). But Torah allows for divorce in the case of indecency in the woman (and probably in the man also – remez) (Deut. 24:1-4). The Pharisees thought they could publicly test Yeshua because there were two rabbinic schools of thought on divorce in those days. Some taught that it was allowed only in the case of some sexual indecency while others taught that it was allowed for trivial reasons. They probably brought this up in order to at least divide the crowd that was following Him.
