Hebrew Theology, Hebrew Roots

In college, I majored in Philosophy, and it was there I learned and really began to see that all people see the world through a certain paradigm, or world-view, if you will.  Christians hold a different world-view from Muslims, though at certain points they intersect.  Hindus and Buddhists have had much of their world-view covertly imported into the traditional Western world-view. 

The Biblical authors all had a Hebraic world-view, shaped by the author of the Bible Himself.   The world-view of the Hebraic peoples, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all had one thing in common, their Hebraic culture and world-view, shaped by the Torah, the instruction of Yahweh.

Abraham Isaac and Jacob all held a Hebraic world-view.  Moses had one.  So did Joshua, David, Joseph, Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Hosea, Joel, and so on till Yeshua. Yeshua had a Hebraic world-view.  He lived the word of God.  He WAS the word of God!  The word of Elohim in the flesh.  He was the Torah.  He IS the Torah made flesh!

The Hebrew world-view, the roots of the Hebrew religion, the roots of the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were shaped and put in place by Yhwh Elohim Himself, the great I AM.

When ministers and pastors come out against the Hebrew Roots followers, and label them as divisive, they are right.  Adonai Yeshua said, "Do not think that I came to bring peace to the earth, but to bring a sword" (Mt. 10:34).  The Word of Elohim is "sharper than any two-edged sword, dividing both soul and spirit, joints and marrow" (Heb. 4:12), separating out the wheat from the chaff.  But those of the "Hebrew Roots" are following and remaining true to the faith of Abraham (Rom. 4:12,13), and with Rabbi Paul, the Pharisee, they "celebrate the feast" (1 Cor. 5:8), for Messiah Y'shua was a minister of a better, re-newed Covenant (Heb. 7:22, 8:6, 12:24).

This is why Y'shua taught his disciples saying:

17 “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.
18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

19 Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Ps. 119:142 Your righteousness [Yhwh] is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law (Torah~ instruction) is truth.
