Don't Forget to
This teaching is a follow-up to the concept block teaching on honor and shame. In this teaching we will discuss the patronage system that was part of the culture and background of the New Testament and in fact existed in the ancient Near East as well as evidenced throughout the Tanakh (Old Testament). This will give us a contextually correct understanding of many of the sayings of Yeshua and the writings of Paul and other New Testament writers. It is most important in understanding that the term 'grace' (Greek: charis) was not primarily a religious word but was well understood throughout the first century world in both the Greco-Roman culture and the Jewish culture of the day. We will see that by understanding this patronage system, we will completely understand our duty of reciprocity towards our God and how this works hand-in-hand with our Biblical mandate of doing justice and righteousness.
This teaching is ~1.5 hours in length and is complimentary to the Honor and Shame teaching. Both of these subjects will be covered in even further depth in my upcoming series on the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 that will be featured on HRN as well as this upcoming year's Haftarah portions that will be available exclusively on Rooted in Torah. I pray that you enjoy this teaching.
