Is there any reason Torah-honoring followers of Messiah Yeshua should pay hold on to anything carried over from Latin, the language of Rome? The Protestant reformers found a few things worthy of keeping, and there is a line of thinking that the Torah Awakening among Christians today is a continuation of the work begun during the Reformation. Josh Ensley hints at that in this second segment of our three-part conversation with him. Specifically, he refers to the “Five Solas” of Reformed Theology:
1. Sola scriptura: “Scripture alone”
2. Sola fide: “faith alone”
3. Sola gratia: “grace alone”
4. Solo Christo: “Christ alone”
5. Soli Deo gloria: “to the glory of God alone”
In this part of our conversation, Josh shares more of his faith journey, which leads directly to our discussion of Pronomian Christianity, the name Josh and his colleagues use to describe the faith walk of those who follower Jesus Christ (Messiah Yeshua) and keep the Law (Torah). As he explains, the Five Solas are among the important elements of the Christian faith they deem essential to carry forward as we come into a walk that embraces the Torah our Messiah lived out.
This faith walk can be difficult at time, which is why Barry Phillips and David Jones share their thoughts on how to find Encouragement from our identity in Messiah. This message of encouragement inhabits the songs from our musical guests, Teshuva and Lenny & Varda.
