  • Who is Torah? Is Jesus Torah? The Hebrew Roots Movement uses the word “Torah” in this equation in their teachings: “Torah is the Word. Jesus is the Word.

  • What is Torah? Read Part I of This Series The word “Torah” in Hebrew is derived from the root ירה which in the hifil (classification) conjugation means “to guide/teach” (see. Lev. 10:11).

  • The Law Makes Us Righteous? A friend involved with the HRM movement shared with me, “Justification (salvation) is through faith by grace.
