Hebrew Roots Discussion -with myself

Hebrew Roots movement in the ‘Western Church’.

Have been listening to different teachers on Hebrew roots here are some of my thoughts:]

What does it mean to live in line with Hebrew roots?
What do they ‘do’ and ‘don’t do’ which is different.

There are different groups and different teachers’ people following in regards to this – different individual takes it to different levels.

Here are some of the things believers ‘do’:


1. Follow the laws, customs, believes and practices commonly associated with Judaism.
2. Using Yeshua instead of Jesus
3. Yahweh, Jehovah, Yehovah etc. instead of ‘The Lord’
4. Closely following the Jewish Feasts.
5. Observing the Sabbath instead of Sunday
6. Fulfilling mitzvoth –(‘commandments’ from the Torah and Talmud) like:
a. Praying Rabbinic liturgy
b. Put on kosher tefillin (strap around the arm or head with the Torah commands in them)
c. Not touching money on a Sabbath
7. Studying and talking Hebrew
8. Wearing a tzizit
9. Investigation your bloodlines to see if you have any Jewish blood.
10. Eating mostly Jewish food.
11. Women not praying without a head covering and men wearing beards
12. Circumcising their children and/or doing adult circumcision.
13. Do not celebrate Christmas or Easter as they are pagan.
14. Wearing the Star of David instead of crosses and other jewelry and post mezuzahs on their doors.

Why does ‘western Christians’ leave their churches and start following the Hebrew roots movement?


1. Disillusioned with modern day ‘Christianity’
2. A means of separating oneself from secular society.
3. Understanding the WORD (old and new testament) better with Hebrew exegesis
4. Try to please God with good works?
5. The danger is replacing one pagan based religion for a rabbinic religion – both cursed by God.

Does it make me righteous before God?


1. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor 5:21.
2. Jesus has become our ‘Torah’ He is the WORD made flesh
3. Jesus said: Mat 5:17 - Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
4. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:14
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

5. The plain answer is NO.
6. There is a basic benefit: it helps to increase a better understanding of God’s character and work leading up to Christ and the fulfillment of His promises in the nation of Israel to judge and bless the world.
7. I believe the feast are tools like pictures that God teaches us. The torah are a reflextion of His personality and help us to know Him, His names are eternal and gives us words to express our love to Him.
8. If we use 'Jesus or Yeshua - HE knows if we are speaking to Him, He is NOT stupid.
