Product Description

Did Yeshua observe the Law? Did Paul teach his congregations to abandon the Torah? Was the devout Jew, Peter, persuaded that the Commandments were cancelled? The answers you'll find in this book may surprise you. Even though many Jews believe that Paul taught against the Law, this book disproves that notion. Most Christians are disconnected from the Torah; reading this book will reconnect them. Dr. Friedman makes an excellent case for his premise that all the fist followers of Mesiah were not only Torah-observant, but also desired to spread their love for God's entire Word to the Gentiles to whom they preached.

    The book is a great reminder for the Church not to forget its Jewish origin. The author attempts to correct the common notion that equates Judaism in general (and Pharisaism in particular) as anti-Messiah by showing from the New Testament writings how the first believers were Torah-observant Jews. Although not the books intention, it would have been more balanced if the author tackled verses in the New Testament that apparently talk about the end of the law in the lives of the believers. I particularly like how the author describes grace, mercy, and love from the perspective of the Old Testament. He showed how these were never abstract concepts but intimately tied to practical realities in the lives of the Gods people.
