One Torah

One Torah

A clear difference of perspective has evolved within Messianic Judaism of our times. Some have taken the position that Messianic Judaism should be reserved primarily for Jewish people, encouraging non-Jews to remain as faithful members of the Christian Church. Others have taken a middle position, teaching that the Torah has a primary application to Jewish people, but that Gentiles are invited (and even encouraged) to espouse some of the Torah in solidarity with Jewish believers.

At TorahResource, we believe the Scriptures (both Tanach and Apostolic Scriptures) are clear in stating that the people of God are one people, and that the Torah (the teaching of God) is applicable to all who are in Yeshua, regardless of their ethnicity, gender, or station in life. This position has become known as “One Torah,” which TorahResource affirms without reservation.

"...do not let anyone take away from you the position you have in Messiah. All who are in Him are true sons and daughters, being chosen by Him to bear His name to a watching world. Whether Jew or Gentile, we are equally important and necessary in the family of God, for we have all been purchased with the same price, 'with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Messiah' (1Pet 1:19)"

What Has Not Changed At TorahResource

by Tim Hegg

  • Is the "One Law" message flawed?
  • Are we wrong to teach that God expects all of His children, whether Jew or Gentile, to obey the Torah and walk righteously before Him?
  • Are there two covenants that bind people to God, one for Jews and another for Gentiles?
  • At TorahResource, we remain firm in what has become known as the "One Law" position because we see it to be based upon Scripture.

The Unity of Torah

by Tim Hegg

  • Do you keep hearing that the Torah is for Jewish people and not for Gentiles?
  • What about the teaching that the Moral laws of the Torah remain, but the Ceremonial and Civil parts have been abolished?
  • Are some of God's family required to obey more of the Torah than others?
  • If so, read this essay that speaks to the issue of the Torah as God's instructions for all of His children, Jew and Gentile alike.

This short essay looks at the unity of the Torah and particularly how many times in the Tanach and Apostolic Scriptures, "commandment" or "word" is used in the singular to represent the whole Torah, emphasizing that the Torah is indivisible. Given this fact, the essay goes on to refute the teaching of some, that certain commandments of the Torah may be for people with Jewish lineage and not for non-Jews.

An Open Letter to The IAMCS

by Tim Hegg

In this open letter, Tim Hegg responds to the accusation (made by the IAMCS in their recent position paper entitled “One Law, Two Sticks: A Critical Look at the Hebrew Roots Movement”) that he “equates Torah observance to the gospel itself,” a “gospel of obedience to the law.” Accompanying the letter are quoted examples for some of Hegg’s published works which show conclusively that the charge made against him by the IAMCS is unfounded and blatantly false.
