My husband has 2 questions for you: The first is, where do you stand on the Hebrew Roots Movement? The second has to do with keeping the Sabbath day holy; isn’t Sabbath Saturday? Do we who consider Sunday as “The Lord’s day” wrong? My husband and I definitely believe the Sabbath is on Saturday, but we are not sure about the other teachings of the Hebrew Roots movement, but we know that you have studied the Bible inside and out, and we would like your insight on it. Are we still subject to “The Law”, as the Hebrews suggest, or is grace sufficient for our walk with God? We know we are saved, but are we missing something?
In Romans 7:1 – 6 Paul addresses the issue of whether or not a New Testament believer is under the Mosaic Law. In verse 6 he states: “But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held, that we should serve in newness of spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.”
While there are aspects of the Hebrew Roots teachings that can be beneficial in giving us insight and greater depth to many of the passages and parables, there is a difference between identifying “with” Israel from identifying “as” Israel.
The first day of the week, Sunday, is the day of worship for Christians in churches around the world. The reason for this is that Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the first day of the week. It is now called the Lord’s day. Through the book of Acts and into Romans and Corinthians, we find the church of Paul’s day worshipping on the first day of the week, the Lord’s day (Acts 20:7, I Corinthians 16:2).
