In this teaching Christopher discusses two main concepts of this Torah Portion מִּשְׁפָּטִים. He discusses the role of Mishpatim law and how to interpret Mishpatim law as well as how it differs from Chukim and Mitzvos. Also, considering this Torah Portion encompasses the laws to be carried out by the Shoftim (Judges) Christopher asks the question, "How should believers see Torah She Be'al Peh (Oral Torah)?" and is there any proof of an oral torah in the Scripture. He looks at the Hebrew to investigate this.
In this week's study the discussion turns to how parshas Mishpatim and the concept of Messiah itself is intertwined in a level most Messianics and Christians do not realize
Studio Halakhot Teaching
Too often in the Messianic faith, Notzri Judaism, the Hebrew Roots etc difference in halakha or observance is seen as something that should bring division. Each person thinks they represent "the true faith" of Yeshua, yet the fact is even at Sinai we see this ideal of diversity and disagreement and diversity and disagreement is a foundation of Judaism and is not something that brings division in Jewish circle. The division aspect comes from various issues with one's yetzer hara and egotism. This is shown not only in this torah portion and the commentaries of the sages and rabbis but in various places in the New Testament
