Hebrew Roots Movement, Pt. 2 – The Law

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Hebrew Roots

We will always find the disciples of Jesus in the New Testament preaching the “cross of Christ” and not ‘Torah (law) keeping‘. Only 4 recommendations found in Acts 15:28-29, to help us to keep on the right track, plus the 3 commandments from Jesus about love is all that is required to Christians.

If we are really in a New Covenant by the blood of the Lamb of God, then we have new instructions given by Jesus and He said His yoke is easy. We are not in a ‘renewed‘ covenant as HRM teaches. Can you imagine the yoke of all the Old Covenant instructions plus all the instructions of the New ? it would be a double yoke, & that’s is what Hebrew Roots Movement teaches.

But Jesus said: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is lightMatthew 11:25-30. Jesus is our Rest, our Sabbath & He was talking to Jews, about the yoke of the old covenant law.

We are not without any law, we now have the Law of Christ, Gal.6:2 & the doctrine (teachings) of Christ, we are in a New Covenant. The law of Christ, then, is to love God with all of our being, to love our neighbors as we love ourselves and He added a new commandment to His followers to love one another of the brethren as HE loved us.

Hebrew Roots Movement, Pt. 1

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Hebrew Roots

This is not a ‘heresy hunting’ blog, everything we post here about other doctrines it’s because has affected us personally (or our love ones), or are answers to questions made by others. 3 brothers & sisters in the Lord in a period of 1 week sent or asked for information regarding this movement.

I just hope and pray this information here may be of help to you. I also want to ask readers for your prayers, for God to help everyone affected by these doctrines of the Hebrew Root Movement (HRM).

Also it is important to clarify that this group HRM differs in doctrine from many Messianic Jews and some of their leaders have shown publicly their concerns about HRM. See ‘One Law Two Sticks

Jewish believer Stephen Katz expresses his concerns when he says, “Much of the Jewish Roots Movement is actually based on later Jewish/rabbinic tradition. More importantly, the question of whether Gentiles need to add Jewish lifestyle and return to Jewish roots was settled by the Jerusalem Council described in Acts 15. The remarkable news of the Gospel is that, in Y’shua, Jews and Gentiles have direct access to God” (“The Jewish Roots Movement: Flowers and Thorns,” March 1, 2001).
