What does it mean that Yeshua was born “under law?” Often, those within mainstream Christianity will argue that this means Yeshua was born in a time when the Torah needed to be observed, but after His death there is no longer any need to be “under law,” meaning “keep Torah,” but is this what Galatians 4:4 really means?

This week we look at the video Jeff Durbin and friends did that respond to our claims about the Torah in the life of a believer. Durbin suggests that the “holiness code” has been done away with because the apostles specifically tell us it did. Durbin points to passages such as Heb. 7:11 and Eph. 2:15ff to show that we are no longer bound by these commands. Durbin goes further to suggest that since we are attempting to “resurrect” these commands, we are enemies of the Gospel.
