Galatians: A Torah-Based Commentary in First-Century Hebraic Context.
Originally published in 2006. Still, a best seller.
Softcover, 478 pages, with an extensive index.
About nineteen hundred years ago, a religion called Christianity supplanted the written Law of Moses and replaced it with its New Testament of Grace, quoting Paul who said:
"You are not under law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14).
Also about nineteen hundred years ago, a religion called Rabbinic Judaism added to the Written Law of Moses and appended to it a New Testament of Oral Law, reflecting what was later committed to writing by Maimonides during the twelfth century, saying...
"If there are 1,000 prophets, all of them of the stature of Elijah and Elisha, giving a certain interpretation, and 1,001 Rabbis giving the opposite interpretation, you shall "incline after the majority" and the law is according to the 1,001 Rabbis, not according to the 1,000 venerable prophets...God did not permit us to learn from the prophets, only from the Rabbis who are men of logic and reason" (Rambam's Introduction to the Mishnah).
The time has come to jettison all false New Testaments, peel off centuries of crusty Jewish and Gentile theological barnacles and sweep the house clean of carless interpretations erroneously attributed to Paul, particularly in Galatians. It is time to return to the true New Testament, as Yeshua taught in Matthew 5:17-19:
"Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfil."
This verse-by-verse commentary on Galatians will allow you to break through centuries of decayed dogmas built upon the shaky foundations of confusion and misapplications of Paul's teachings.
What are the "Works of the Law" (Galatians 3)?
Who were the "Tutors" (Galatians 3)?
What did Paul wish to convey with the analogy of Hagar and Mount Sinai (Galatians 4)?
What is the Yoke of Slavery (Galatians 5)?
Break the mold! Set the entrenched ancient doctrines of Rome on fire. Clean up the idolatry of Jerusalem and all Israel. Let's get back to the truth...Let's get back to the Written Word of Yehovah (YHVH). Learn that Paul taught his readers to hear and do the Torah and supported Yeshua in this same doctrine.
