The Yeshua Roots Course is one of the most scintillating courses that I have ever taught. This course is teaching the Gospel from a 1st century perspective.
Below are questions from students taking the course:
1.How come people would be put to death if they worked on the sabbath?
Exodus 31:14-16 You shall keep the Sabbath, because it is holy for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. Whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death. Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing the Sabbath throughout their generations, as a covenant forever.
Answer: YHWH gave Israel explicit connands or laws to live by, and if Israel didn’t follow his commands, they had to pay a penalty. The penalty or wages of sin is always death.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The wonderful thing about YHWH through Yeshua is that the death we are to suffer because of our sin was suffered by Yeshua.
The Sabbath ultimately signifies a believer being saved and resting in Him and free from struggling and trying to free himself or herself.
Exodus 16:25-29 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is a Sabbath, there will be none.”
The word sabbath means rest. Six days man would work, but on the seventh he rested. However, YHWH would provide for man ALL seven days. For six days YHWH would provide Israel… Just enough for a day at a time. However, YHWH would give Israel provisions on the sixth day for the sixth day and the seventh. All Israel had to do was follow instructions. If they didn’t follow His instructions they suffered.
On the seventh day some of the people went out to gather, but they found none. And the Lord said to Moses, “How long will you refuse to keep my commandments and my laws? See! The Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Remain each of you in his place; let no one go out of his place on the seventh day.”

3.Why is a person always described as John the son of so and so, son of etc from the tribe of Judah?
