In this session, join Eddie as he decodes the passage about the “One New Man” from Ephesians 2: 13-17 where it is written: “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.
Many have misunderstood this passage to say that Yeshua came to “abolish the Torah, the law of commandments contained in ordinances. Is that what Paul was really saying?
The other passage that Eddie takes a look at is Colossians 2: 13-15, which states:
“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of ordinances that were against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
Many in mainstream Christianity have interpreted this passage to mean that Yeshua nailed the Torah to the cross. Is that what Paul was saying?
