Validity of Torah

Christian Misunderstanding or an Antinomian Assault?

Answering: No One Should Keep the Law

Answering: The Law as a Unit

Answering: The Verses Given Against Torah Validity

“Each of the passages listed—whether in the pastor’s original paper, or added to the list later—is preceded by its reference, and then a paraphrase of a common evangelical Christian interpretation. The verse has then been quoted from the 1995 New American Standard Bible, Updated Edition (NASU), which among conservative Protestants has often been considered to be one of the most literal Bible versions available, and notably uses italics to indicate most words that have been added to the English translation, as well as putting quotations or allusions from the Old Testament in small capital letters. Other major English versions I consult include the Revised Standard Version and New International Version. When references to the Greek Apostolic Scriptures are necessary, the text used comes from United Bible Societies’ 1998 Greek New Testament, Fourth Revised Edition, which is identical to the text used in the 27th Edition of Nestle-Aland’s Novum Testamentum Gracae. This critical text is used in most modern translations of the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament).”
