Inside the Hebrew Roots Movement

This film exposes the truth behind the Messianic / Hebrew Roots Movement. The interviews are all of from ordinary people’s perspective. Their stories need to be told and the message behind this film is extremely important.

The target audience is for anyone that has an interest in what this movement really is, and it is for truth seekers who are being led away from the doctrines of men and toward to God’s Word and His way.

Misunderstood Verses of the New Testament. Part IV

Mark 7:15

Problem: There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.” Many understand this verse to mean Yeshua made all things clean

Solution: There are 2 things with this.
1. The audience Yeshua was speaking to was made up of Jews, including some Jews who already understood the dietary law restrictions and they were not in question here.
2. The context of the verse is regarding the disciples not washing their hands before eating, a rabbinic tradition not something from the Torah; he was not being accused of breaking the Torah.

The rabbinic teaching was that if a person did not wash their hands a certain way before eating, then what was being eaten was not ceremonially clean, thus it would defile them. Yeshua is telling them this is not what defiles a person.

 

Luke 16:16-17

Problem: 16 “The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John; since that time the gospel of the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. 17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one stroke of a letter of the Law to fail.” Many understand these verses to mean once John the Baptist came the law and the prophets no longer applied. The problem lies in the translation of the word “until” and meaning that it ceased once John the Baptist arrived.

Solution:
The Greek may be rendered this way as well: The law and the prophet[s] up to John, since then the kingdom which God evangelizing and all into it forcefully urged. The message of this passage appears to be saying you had the Law and the Prophets telling you how to live, act, and warn you about the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven. Then there were no prophets for a time period until John the Baptist, then he arrived and began strongly proclaiming the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven again, the need for repentance and turning back to God and His ways, not man’s ways.

 

John 3:16-17

Problem: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Many misunderstand what the word “believe” means.

Solution:
John 3:20-21 – For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who DOES THE TRUTH comes to the LIGHT, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” Walking as Yeshua walked means walking the same instructions that Yeshua walked (1 John 2:6). This is why ALL Scripture is instructions in righteousness (not just some of it) (1 Timothy 3:16). From a Biblical standpoint, believers are to do what they believe and believe what they do.

 

John 13:34-35

Problem: “A new command I give you. Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Many use this verse to show that Yeshua added to the Torah and what He commanded was different from what was in the Torah.

Solution:
Leviticus 19:18 – “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD” Yeshua is simply expounding, further explaining the commandment already given in the Torah. If Yeshua added to the Torah, then He sinned (Deuteronomy 4:2).

Misunderstood Verses of the New Testament. Part II

Matthew 12:1-8

Problem: Verses 1-2: At that time Yeshua went through the grain fields on the Sabbath, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat. 2 But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples do what is not lawful to do on a Sabbath.”

The Oral Law/Traditions says you can’t rub grain between your fingers because it is considered threshing which is work on the Sabbath.

Solution: Verses 3-5: 3 But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, he and his companions, 4 how he entered the house of God, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat nor for those with him, but for the priests alone? 5 Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath and are innocent? Feeding the hungry is greater purpose than rolling oats, when no actual work/profession is being accomplished.

Matthew 16:18-19

Problem: 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

There are two things here that are questioned, one is the understanding that Peter is the rock Yahweh builds a new church on; the other relates to binding and loosing and what authority is being given here and what the keys to heaven are.

Solution:

Regarding Verse 18-
Amos 9:11 11 “In that day I will raise up the fallen booth of David, And wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins And rebuild it as in the days of old; Joel 2:32-3:1 It will so happen that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be delivered. For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who survive, just as the Lord has promised; the remnant will be those whom the Lord will call. For look! In those days and at that time I will return the exiles to Judah and Jerusalem. Yeshua is the only rock upon which anything is built, He is the cornerstone, the foundation (The Word).

The nation of Israel is the only institution which the prophets mention that God would restore and build back up. There is no mention of any other structure that God would “build” in the “last days” except for the house of Israel.

Regarding Verse 19-
The grammatical construction in the Greek manuscripts is very important to the understanding of the meaning of this instruction. “Shall be having been bound” and “shall be having been loosened”. This is very awkward English, but it accurately renders the periphrastic future perfect tense. . It essentially means, “when this judgment is ‘bound,’ it shall already have been bound in heaven,” and “when the judgment is ‘to loose’ (release), it shall already have been released in heaven.” What Messiah was actually saying was, “the judgment which you render shall have already been rendered.” Why? Because the Law of Messiah’s reign is the Law of Moses. Any loosing or binding must be done in accordance with what has already been decided by God and written in the Law. Thus, when the elders decide to “bind” in accordance to the dictates of the
judgments of the Torah, then heaven has indeed already decided the case and has been “bound.”

Misunderstood Verses of the New Testament. Part I

Matthew 5:17-20

Problem: Verse 17: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Yeshua says He came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets; it is often taught or understood that “fulfill” means to come to an end, it is finished.

Solution: Verse 18: For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Nothing from the Law changes until heaven and earth pass away. Therefore fulfill cannot mean “to be completed” or “finished”. Instead it means to be made full, filled full of meaning, fully preached. Yeshua was the Word made flesh who taught and showed by example what the Law meant in its fullness and how it was to be applied.

Matthew 7:15-23

Problem: Verses 15-16: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? It is not always clear what fruit is and how to tell a false prophet. Some are taught that fruit is a large congregation, feelings of love, or only the Fruit of the Spirit.

Solution:
1 John 3:9 No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
1 Peter 1:23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
1 John 3:4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.
The fruit that we are to watch out for is the choosing to disregard God’s law. Everything else can be blended but there is no blending the desiring to obey and the desiring to disregard God’s Law. You either desire to obey it OR you desire to disregard it. It’s one or the other in the eyes of the Father. And remember, breaking one law is like breaking all of it.

The Mystery of Melchizedek

A Mystery Solved

The Identity of Melchizedek

He did so in the person of Melchizedek, priest of the Most High God. The book of Genesis only briefly mentions this mysterious person. But King David, and especially the New Testament book of Hebrews, does not miss His deep significance.

To understand Melchizedek’s identity, we must let the Bible interpret the Bible. Our breadth of understanding is augmented enormously when we join these three accounts together and consider them as a whole.

First let’s look at the Genesis account. After rescuing his nephew Lot from military capture, Abram, whose name was later changed to Abraham, encountered Melchizedek. “Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. And he blessed him and said: ‘Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High who has delivered your enemies into your hand.’ And he [Abram] gave him a tithe of all” (Genesis 14:18-20).

It is interesting to note that Melchizedek greeted Abraham with bread and wine, later to become the symbols of Jesus Christ’s Passover sacrifice of His body and blood. Also, Melchizedek addressed God as “Possessor of heaven and earth.” Around 2,000 years later, Jesus addressed the Father as “Lord of heaven and earth.”

Psalm 110, one of David’s psalms, is one of the most theologically significant. As pointed out in an earlier chapter of this booklet, it features both the Father and the Word in the opening verse: “The Lord said to my [David’s] Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand …’” It is Christ who now resides at the Father’s right hand (Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 10:12; Hebrews 12:2).

Keeping the general context of Psalms 110:1 in mind, notice Psalms 110:4: “The Lord has sworn and will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’” This is the same Lord who spoke to David’s Lord (the preexistent Word) in Psalms 110:1, still speaking to the same Being. This certainly helps to indicate the identity of this mysterious Old Testament personage. Yet it is the book of Hebrews that gives us the strongest evidence.

Hebrews’ commentary on Melchizedek

So important is this basic subject that one entire New Testament chapter is devoted to explaining the significance of just three verses in the book of Genesis. The topic is introduced in the last verse of Hebrews 6. The writer points out that Jesus has become “High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek,” as King David foretold so long ago in Psalm 110.

Then in Hebrews 7, the author goes on to consider the amazing attributes and qualities of God’s high priest of old. “For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, … first being translated ‘king of righteousness,’ and then also king of Salem, meaning ‘king of peace,’ … remains a priest continually” (Hebrews 7:1-3).

Consider that Melchizedek means “King of Righteousness.” It would essentially be blasphemy to apply this title to any human being because “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Only a divine Being would appropriately bear this awesome title.

Says The New Bible Commentary: Revised: “Note that Scripture pictures him [Melchizedek] as one who is a king as well as a priest . The combination of these two offices was to be a distinguishing characteristic of the Messiah” (1970, p. 1203, emphasis in original).

Melchizedek’s next awesome title is “King of Peace.” Of course, fallible human beings simply do not know the way to peace (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:17), and to apply such a title to any man would, again, be virtually blasphemous. Jesus Christ Himself is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).

“Like the Son of God”

The equation between these two great personages becomes clearer as we read on in Hebrews 7. Hebrews 7:3 describes Melchizedek as being “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, [and one who] remains a priest continually.” His priesthood never ceased! The only priest who could possibly have fit these qualifications was the preexistent Word, the great Being who was on hand before the very creation itself (John 1:1).

The description “without father, without mother” means far more than just the supposition that Melchizedek’s family connections were simply omitted from the Genesis account. He had no physical human parents! In context, the phrase “having neither beginning of days nor end of life” makes that point crystal clear.

Finally, the phrase “made like the Son of God” (“bearing the likeness of the Son of God,” REB) is further strong evidence of Melchizedek’s identity. He was “like” the Son of God because He was not yet, in actuality, the Son of God—that is, until He was later begotten by God the Father through the agency of the Holy Spirit.

Melchizedek couldn’t have been the Father because he was the “priest of the Most High God.” He could only have been the eternal, preexistent Word who later became Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

A response to IAMCS One Law, Two Sticks Position Paper

The following is Brad Scott’s response to the International Alliance Of Messianic Congregations And Synagogues (Iamcs) One Law, Two Sticks Position Paper:

“…[T]here comes a time when something comes along that is so self serving and so incredibly repugnant that I have to speak my mind. I am speaking of the publication of another missionary position paper on how wrong and unbiblical everyone but the authors of the paper are. I am speaking of the recent long article put out by the International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues or IAMCS. It is an article entitled: “One Law, Two Sticks: A Critical Look at the Hebrew Roots Movement.” The whole world has been waiting on pins and needles for these guys to finally solve the problem with this heretical bunch of Jewish wannabes. It is a very long article because it takes some time to impugn and slander a dozen or so brothers without coming to them personally. I am only going to address the first two paragraphs of this unsubstantiated diatribe.

I wish to begin with a disclaimer. These are only a few frustrated men that do not represent the whole of Messianic Judaism. Most leaders and members of Messianic Jewish synagogues and congregations that I have fellowshipped with are warm, loving people who just want to worship and please the God of Israel just as we do. But my friends, every time I hear this kind of rhetoric and sandbox baby talk I cannot help but think of the proverbial race card. Every word in this paper is pure racism, disguised as “Oh those poor Gentiles they want to be like us, oh God bless em.” It appears that it is okay to work on the plantation, boys, but ya gotta use the commode out yonder! Although the commandments of God are designed to bless us when we keep them, ‘you boys’ are on the wrong side of the tracks, the blessing are for us. Now and then these men attempt to feign brotherhood, but it is all condescending.

With that in mind, I have chosen to place the actual first two paragraphs from the paper first. Below that I have rendered my satirical translation that came easy to me as I struggled to read this thing. The words Jews and Jewish are replaced with white men. The Gentiles or non-Jews are replaced with Negroes and the law is the public bathrooms.

We, as Messianic Jewish leaders, have become increasingly concerned that there are a growing number of individuals and groups today promoting the idea that all the world’s believers in the Messiah – Jewish and Gentile alike – ought to be keeping the Torah,particularly the Shabbat, the feasts, and kosher diet. The doctrine which is the subject of this paper has been around since the day of the Apostles, in different forms, but today it has come to be known as “One Law One People” or just “One Law,” for short. It insists upon Gentile Torah observance universally. Most of those who teach it, also promote false theories about Israel identity as well. Recently, some of the more prominent One Law teachers have banded together and begun using the label “Hebrew Roots” to describe themselves as a movement. This nomenclature is regrettable from our point of view, since it causes confusion.

Obviously, the roots of the biblical faith are Jewish. Thankfully, many non-Jewish believers worldwide recognize the fact that their faith is rooted in a Jewish Messiah,Jewish Apostles, and a Jewish gospel. We note that many precious, well-meaning Gentile believers are drawn to Messianic Judaism because they wish to connect with Israel; they want to understand the Bible in historical context, or they simply have a desire to enrich their faith by acquiring a more Jewish understanding of the Lord.

Here is what I believe is really happening.

We, as leaders of the superior race, have become increasingly concerned that there are a growing number of individuals and groups today actually promoting the idea that all the world’s believers in the white Messiah – white and negro alike – ought to be using the same public bathrooms, particularly the sinks, the toilet stools and the soap dispenser. This kind of teaching, which is the subject of this paper, has been around since the days of the early Klansmen, in different forms, but today it has come to be known as ‘One People, One Bathroom’ or just plain ‘One Bathroom’ theology. These here people insist on negro public bathroom usage with the white man, universally. Did ya ever imagine such a thing? Most of the people who stand up for this abominable practice also promote false theories about white identity as well. Recently, some of the more prominent ‘One Bathroom’ teachers have banded together to sing the ole negro spiritual, ‘We shall overcome’, and they describe themselves as abolitionists. What in the world is that? This nonmanclatur, nomnanclayture, uh, numanclatetre, this word is regrettable from our point of view, since it suggests that the white man and the negro are one. Can ya imagine that?Obviously, the roots of public bathroom usage are white and belong to the white man. Thankfully however, there are many Negroes in the world that recognize the fact that their beliefs are rooted in a white Messiah, white apostles, and a white man’s gospel. We note that there are many precious, well-meaning Negroes out there that are drawn to the white man’s lifestyle because they wish to connect to the superior race of the white man and they want to understand the white man in his historical context, or they simply have a desire to enrich their lower class lives by acquiring a more white man’s understanding of God. Isn’t that precious, God bless ’em.

I speak to the men who felt the need to attempt to divide us all again by putting out this racist dribble: our behavior and desire to please our Father based on our ethnicity. I see it as nothing more than that. I suggest you publicly apologize, particularly to the men you spent a considerable amount of time trashing, and put your efforts into mercy and reconciliation. I suggest you focus more on the fruit of the Spirit. If there was ever a time in the history of mankind that brothers, who all love the Messiah and the God of Israel, should cling to each other it is NOW, it is this generation. Stop it, stop it, stop it.”

Shalom Alecheim!
