Torah Foundations

The Torah is the pivot of Judaism, for in the Torah is recorded the Creation, the Flood, the call of Abraham, the lives of the patriachs, the sojourn in Egypt, the rescue from Egyptian bondage, and the revelation of the priestly sacrificial system, which foreshadows the work of Messiah Himself. Any Messianic Jewish perspective, therefore, must be clear in its understanding of Torah and the early covenants God made with Israel. Our understanding is, of course, retrospective through the person of Yeshua, but it is an understanding that seeks to be fair to the original contextual meaning of the covenants as well.
