Misconception of Paul's Writings

In all of Scripture, there is no greater theological depth than in Paul's teaching on Yeshu, Israel and the Law. This teaching is central to the meaning of the Good News itself. Yet, how tragically this teaching in misunderstood, both by Yeshua's followers and those who do not follow Him. The error is usually one of carelessness. A verse is taken out of context and false conclusions are drawn, when the true meaning of the verse can be seen only in the light of Paul's whole connected presentation. Further, various meanings of the word law of nomos are not distinguished; all are lumped together. Yet in everyday speech, we know one word may carry several meanings according to the context of usage. In addition, there are plays on words, so loved by Jewish thinkers, but totally missed by the modern reader. We believe that Paul's teaching is thoroughly in line with his profession and example in the Book of Acts and fully accord with Messianic Judaism.
