Let's talk about the "hasid of all Hasidim" and the so-called Jewish identity markers such as the bris milah, kashrut, Shabbos, etc Rav Shaul did not impose on non-Jews. Nor did Rav Shaul allow these to upstage the Besuras Hageulah of Moshiach Ben Dovid, whom Hashem set forth as a kaporah (see kapporet [Lev 16:2], place of atonement, mercy seat) in his blood, which is the source of a just G-d's justification of sinners, with saving faith (emunah) being salvation's only means, and with salvation itself being a product of sheer grace (Chen vChesed Hashem) (Ro 9:10-18). However,
HaDerech, the sect (Ac 24:14) of Judaism in Israel to which Rav Shaul submits his preaching, contains Spirit-filled Jewish believers [whose halakhah is in accord with the Derech HaChayim of the Ruach Hakodesh, see Ro 8:4] and who live a Torah-observant Jewish life in Shul on Shabbos and yet, at the same time, these Spirit-filled Biblically Orthodox Jewish messianic believers know that, because of the sin-prone "Adam in me" nature, remnants of which are still resident in the believer, they need the power of the Ruach Hakodesh, rather than merely and only the scrupulous observance of the letter of the Torah of Moshe Rebbeinu, in order to conquer sin and live under grace a frum messianic Jewish life of kedushah with victory over the flesh in holiness. They also know that their salvation from the wrath of G-d rests on faith in the kapporah Moshiach provided (Ro 3:25) and not on their ma'asei hamitzvot. Raising their children in the knowledge of their Jewish heritage is for the sake of preserving (Ps 137:5 Ro 3:1-9) their Jewish peoplehood (Ro 11:2, 30-31) so that the ultimate salvation of this people (Ro 11:25-26) would come through the Besuras HaGeulah (Ro 3:20; Ga 2:16 Ro 8:3; Ro 3:9). That said, note well: teaching that Rav Shaul "acted the hypocrite" in Acts 21 because he really had developed an anti-Jewish mindset toward his heritage--to teach such a lie--is heresy. There are people who don't understand Jewish ministry and teach this lie, which would mean that Paul's martyrdom in Rome all happened as a result of hypocritically play-acting the role of a Jew in the Beis Hamikdash (Temple) in Jerusalem. There are people who don't understand Paul. They think he had already decided that these Jewish identity markers were of negligible value for the sustenance and survival of the Jewish people as a people and therefore forbidden to messianic Jewish believers. Any teacher who sets forth such a "Pauline" doctrine is teaching false doctrine and has forgotten Rav Shaul's warning in Ro 11:18. When one discusses the Torah, there is more to talk about than legal justification. If a Messianic Jew is law-free in terms of legal justification, does this mean that the Torah should have no other place in the life of a Messianic Jew? Rom 7:4-6 and Gal 2:19 cannot be used to rob the Torah of its G-d-ordained Jewish peoplehood-sustaining function. Goyim who have no interest in seeing Jewish people remain Jewish are shortsighted in trying to abolish the Shlichus to the Jews in Gal 2:7. Gentiles are equally shortsighted in denying Jewish believers the right to build messianic synagogues with Torah services since, if Jewish people without messianic synagogues do not survive assimilation, then the promise of Romans chp 11 cannot be fulfilled, because the Deliverer will not have any surviving Jews left to receive the Ro 11:25-27 deliverance. Why did G-d have a Shlichus to the Jews and another Shlichus to the non-Jews if G-d wanted all Jews to assimilate and live and identify as non-Jews? Go back and look at Gal 2:7-9 again. We are not rebuilding the middle wall of partition. G-d wants the Jewish people to survive as a people. This is what we teach at our school. Non-Jews who love the Jewish people understand this teaching. The wild branches are not to boast against the natural ones. The Romans were developing a contempt for the Jewish people and the Corinthians wanted to pretend that the faith started from them, but Rav Shaul reminds them that salvation is of the Jews. Many latently anti-Semitic westerners, evangelistic sluggards when it comes to Jewish people, refuse to admit that the hard center of our faith is Spirit-filled Judaism. True, Rav Shaul preached the Besuras HaGeulah and not the bris milah (Ga 5:11). This was true for two reasons. He was sent to Goyim, number one. And secondly taking the yoke of 613 mitzvos via the bris milah and for the sake of salvation through legal justification was a dead-end street, meaning the person thus deceived has fallen from grace (Ga 5:4) and has come to see that Moshiach died for nothing (see Ga 2:21). However, as an identity marker the bris milah was given to Timothy whose mother was Jewish (Ac 16:3), disproving the rumor about Rav Shaul denying to the Jewish People these Jewish identity markers (Ac 21:21). Kashrut is not at issue in Rav Shaul's presentation of the Besuras HaGeulah in Romans, since sectarian abstinence from meat and wine (Ro 14:21) was not halakhah in the sect (Ac 24:14)of Judaism known as HaDerech to which Rav Shaul submitted his preaching. In Ro chapter 14 Paul chooses vegetarianism, a non-issue for Torah-observant messianic Jews, so that he can create a point of common ground to bring Jews and non-Jews to agreement on matters of Kehillah social ethnics. Notice here that it is not the Torah-observant messianic Jew that Paul places in the spotlight of contention. No, it is the messianic vegetarian, and not just any messianic vegetarian, but one who is perilously weak in justifying faith (Ro 5:1) and who needs loving and sensitive handling by both the other messianic Jewish and non-Jewish believers. So this is Paul's carefully laid out test case for his ethics exposition. Remember, his Shlichus is to the non-Jews (Ga 2:9) and he has no interest in coaxing Torah observant messianic Jews away from Shul on Shabbos--this was where Rav Shaul himself, if undeterred, was in attendance preaching! Rather Moshiach appointed Rav Shaul to build up non-Jews in the Messianic faith, and this means also that some messianic Torah observant Jews needed building up because they were weak in justifying faith (Ro 5:1) in "believing" (Ro 15:13) that Moshiach is the Mesharet Bnei HaMilah (Ro 15:8), just as some uncircumcised were weak in justifying faith (Ro 5:1) in terms of "the righteousness of faith that Abraham had in his uncircumcision" (Ro 4:11). See Ro 9:1-5 for Rav Shaul's high view of the value of his Jewish heritage, for from this source came his Moshiach, the Goel Redeemer of the Jewish People. As a religious Jew, Rav Shaul was familiar with Lev 15:16 in the Torah, that an impure person must immerse himself in a Mikveh, but when he came to faith in the Moshiach Adoneinu, he did not do the Mikveh immersion (Ac 9:18) as a mitzvah earning him merit, because he knew himself to be under grace, and he gives these warnings in Galatians 5:4 and Romans 11:20-23 against anyone who would use the Jewish religion or any religious act as a way to earn merit for salvation, for if salvation came through meritorious mitzvahs rather than faith in the Goel Redeemer then Moshiach died for nothing. See also the warnings in MJ 3:12; 10:26-29; 2K 2:20-21 and Yn 15:6. Nevertheless, Rav Shaul worshiped in a Messianic Jewish community wherein the Mikveh and the rest of his Jewish faith were used in the Ruach Hakodesh to praise the saving grace of Moshiach the Zoon Foon Der Oybershter, though not as mitzvahs to gain merit toward salvation. Anyone who quotes Gal. 4:8-10, Col.2:16-17, or Romans 14:5-6 to prove that the Jewish festivals are forbidden to Jewish believers in Yeshua is reading the Bible entirely out of context. Paul is not addressing these epistles to Jewish believers who are celebrating these days in the name of Yeshua; therefore, his words cannot be taken out of context as criticism of believers who are celebrating these days in the name of Yeshua. Moreover, in the book of Acts we see Paul himself hurrying to Jerusalem to celebrate the festivals. (See p.30 Everything You Need To Grow A Messianic Yeshiva.)

The 19th Psalm says that the simple are made wise by the testimony of Hashem, which testimony is "sure."  In fact,
G-d's Word is called



temimah (perfect). (Tehillim 19: 7[8])


This means it is factually without error.  G-d is not the author of any lie or falsehood or misrepresentation of reality or false witness to the truth.  The Bible is verbally inspired.  This means that literally every word is breathed out in the very breath of the Ruach Hakodesh and that man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Hashem.

The Bible is the solid rock that will never pass away. Whatever is in the Bible is just what G-d wanted to be said and not the mere whim of human will. See 2K 1:21.  In the Scriptures are spiritual words taught by the Ruach Hakodesh to those believers who have the Ruach Hakodesh. See 1C 2:12-16.  See 2Ti 3:16 and Mt 5:18. 

We have no other written authority.  The words of the Hellenistic Jewish Synagogue of the First Century that comprise the last 27 books and the Hebrew and Aramaic words that make up the first 39 books are without error in the original autographs and have been preserved in the extant copies so that we have the infallible and inerrant authority that is able to make us wise unto salvation.  See 2Ti 3:15. 

Blessed is the man
who over G-d's Word does not stumble.  Just as it was possible for a proud disciple of the Jerusalem rabbis to look at the Galilean Carpenter and not "read" him but instead despise his lowly peasant appearance ("There was no special beauty or form to make us notice him or desire him" Isaiah 53:2), so there are proud readers who see apparent but not actual discrepancies in the Scripture.  For example, when you are reading Matthew 27:9 you might think that the text has a mistake until you realize that this is a composite citation (Jer 18:2-6; 19:1-2,4,6,11; 32:6-15; Zech 11:13) from Zecharyah and Yirmeyah.  And just as some turned away from the incognito King, Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach, so one's wicked heart might lead one to turn away from Matthew 27:9, but in both cases the error is not in what is read but in the reader.

Blatant disregard for the inerrant Tanakh will cost the soul of the one making deathbed viddui (confession of sin) of these words from the Talmud,

"May my death make kaparah for all my sins." rather than "T’hei mot haMoshiach kaparah al kol avonotai" "May the death of Moshiach make kaparah for all my sins." If the following six words from the Talmud
תְּהֵא מִיתָתִי כַּפָּרָה עַל כָּל עֲוֹנוֹתָי. [סנהדרין פרק ו,ב]
are erroneously preferred to these six words from the Tanakh it will be to the eternal lose of the nefesh
כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי
Let's repeat this so that there can be no confusion or question. There are two confessions here. Each contains six little words. One Jewish confession is the holy inspired Word of G-d and one confession is not the inspired Word of G-d. Confession of the Talmud instead of the Tanakh will cost one his immortal soul. Here are the words from the Talmud:
"May my death make kaparah for all my sins." Here are the Words from the inerrant Tanakh: "Kee neegzar may-eretz chayyim mee-pay-sha amee." So from these inerrant words we confess "T’hei mot haMoshiach kaparah al kol avonotai," which translates into English: "May the death of Moshiach make kaparah for all my sins." Now if
תְּהֵא מִיתָתִי כַּפָּרָה עַל כָּל עֲוֹנוֹתָי. [סנהדרין פרק ו,ב]
is erroneously preferred to these following six Hebrew words from the Tanakh, then that fatal choice will result in the eternal lose of the nefesh:
כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי

So we primordially and perennially, with disastrous consequences for ourselves, forsake the words of G-d and receive the contradictory words of HaSatan.

By the time we get to 2 Corinthians chp 11 we see that Satan wants to corrupt and ruin by means of Bible-opposing "knowledge," the so-called "deeper things of Satan." Instead of staying with the Word that was preached, the temptation of the Corinthians was to "go beyond what was written" and to be seduced by extra-Biblical knowledge (see Gen 3:5). Notice that Eve's "Bible" only has seven words in it. The seven words in her "Bible" warn that death will be the result of her moral autonomy, of her getting her "knowledge" of good and evil, in other words, from a certain lethal tree rather than from the "Bible" her husband has been given wherein the meager content of seven words ("oo-meh-ETZ ha-DAH-aht tov va-rah loh toh-KHOHL mee-mehn-NOO" ...of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat from it) will nevertheless tell her how to live and not die. But in the hands of the evil Serpent this "Bible" can be twisted and used to deceive her so that she hands herself over to a rival authority, a Bible-opposing authority, with fatal results. Anything that rivals and opposes G-d is an idol, and in the Book of Revelation we see that the believers will give up their lives as martyrs rather than compromise with the idolatrous religion and way of life of the pagan society of the last days. It is fair to say that one cannot be a believer unless one repents from all idolatry. Whoever tries to keep his idolatrous life will lose it.
