One Torah, One Custom, One People: ISRAEL


Don't Forget to

In the Messianic Movement, there are issues that are causing division among the brethren. One of these issues is the question of whether the Torah is for all people. Should all believers in Yeshua keep the Torah or only the Jews? What about the laws of Noach? Can a grafted in believer teach in the assembly of Jewish believers? We will examine what the Torah says about this as well as what the New Testament says in regards to the Law. Rav Shaul teaches in Ephesians 2:19: Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God. If anyone identifies themselves with Israel, then shouldn't they walk in obedience to the God of Israel?

Rico Cortes

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

  1. Thank you Rico. This teaching confirms that our true identity is in Yeshua – One Torah, One Custom, One people: how thrilling! One day we will experience this reality.


  2. I’ve heard the ‘erev rav’ referred to as the evil rabble (Strong Mixture) who were essentially the ones at fault for compelling the Israelites to make a golden calf. These were also those that murmured and complained. As the story teller goes, it was these 3000 that were put to death, less than 1% of the population. Of course the story teller is Jewish and also indicates that the Israelites were “blameless”…. I don’t buy that but that is a way of discounting the “mixed multitude” from the covenant given at Mt. Sinai….

  3. Interesting thought I was having this evening:

    Was the erev rav (mixed multitude) that came out of Egypt referring to those who were not the literal descendants of Ya’akov, or is it possibly referring to those who as Paul was referring to when he said, “not all Israel is Israel”. Could it be possible that the 600,000 was a count of the number of households who were the spiritual seed of Abraham regardless of their bloodline and that all the others were of the other side, a multitude that included non-believing “Israelites”?


  4. This teaching, One Torah, One Custiom, One People: Israel, has finally killed all need for a physical ethnic identity. for years I have allowed myself to be held captive to hate, prejudice, envy and other evil inclinations because I felt like a lower breed human. Now that I know my identity is what is found in Torah, I’m at peace in my heart, soul and mind.

    Thank you Rico for making this teaching so simple that even a theologian would not be able to confuse me.
