Continuing from part 7, Rabbi Steve teaches further on the topic of guarding the Torah and possessing the Witness. As he takes us to Luke 10:25 we see once again Messiah Yeshua being tested by someone considered as “learned”. We also see here the word “inherit” being used regarding eternal life. What does this mean? How does it bring a critical understanding to being “saved”? In this passage we also see the question, “What must I do…”; how did Yeshua respond?
Is salvation through Messiah the same as receiving eternal life?
In Luke 8 we find the parable of the Seed and the Sower. Rabbi Steve takes us backwards through Yeshua’s explanation of this parable in order to understand it in a very unique way. If the “soil” is symbolic of the heart of a person, are people locked-in to the type of “soil” they find themselves to be, or can people choose the type of “soil” they would like to be? To what is the “fruit” referring? What is the key word most people overlook when reading about the “good soil”?
In your excitement about discovering the truth of Torah, was your first reaction to run to tell your family and friends all about it? Rabbi Steve gives some crucial advice on how to avoid being blown out when starting your Torah-observant life.
Rabbi Steve continues to unpack and expand through scripture the understanding of this vital topic of the relationship between salvation, faith/belief and works.
