We, as believers in Yeshua (Jesus), have died to the Torah (Law, God’s commandments). This is the way Paul describes us as well as all of those who accept the sacrifice of Yeshua on their behalf. What has been a subject of confusion, however, is what exactly this means and what it looks like to effectively live our lives as dead to the Torah. In this brochure, we will examine the context surrounding Paul’s use of this phrase to get a good idea what it means and what its implications are for believers.

Paul, Part 3: Justification
The main theme of Romans is the justification of sinners. Justification is the way in which God accepts a sinful human being and sets them in a place of right-standing through Yeshua. The relationship between justification, faith, and following the Torah (God’s commands) is sometimes misunderstood, so let’s look at Romans and see what Paul is really saying.
Paul, Part 2: Jerusalem Council
The Jerusalem council recorded in Acts 15 is a crucial moment in the history of Christianity. Unfortunately, this passage is generally misunderstood. Most people today believe the decision made here by the council declares that Gentiles should not follow the Torah. We are going to go through this chapter to find out if this is correct.
Paul, Part 1: Who Was Paul?
Paul is the number one person who people quote when talking about Christianity. This is likely due to the fact that nearly half of the New Testament is attributed to his authorship. Although this is the case, Paul is probably the most misunderstood figure in the Scriptures. Even his own contemporaries found his words sometimes difficult to understand (2 Peter 3:15-18). Today, in addition to this we have the obstacle of time which separates us from him. For this reason it is essential that we understand who Paul was so we can understand his teachings.
