The role of the Torah is poorly understood within the religious communities of both Judaism and Christianity, but with varying causes. Its use in biblical salvation history is much more than the foundational text for Israelite existence, covenant, and stipulation. ""Torah"" is the Hebrew word for instruction, not law, and this sacred document contains, not only the well-known Abrahamic covenant of grace, but two core lessons: the serious nature of sin and the fearful necessity of transforming grace. Torah of Sin and Grace provides a fresh, honest, and careful examination of both the Torah and the relevant prophetic portions of the later Hebrew Bible, which will reveal the fact that the biblical writers themselves had a larger understanding of the role of the Torah, and that this understanding always incorporated the recognition of the failed Israelite covenant, resulting in the core lessons concerning the sinfulness of man and the supernatural grace that rescues him. Much of the book discusses the unfolding of this glorious rescuing grace for both Jew and Gentile, including the ""new things"" revealed by the prophets such as the new covenant, the Suffering Servant, the ingathering of the Gentiles, and the future of Israel and their land. ""Michael Tupek has written a book that clarifies the precious gospel that unites the two testaments. God has spoken and sent his messengers, Moses and the prophets, whose ministries anticipate the coming of the Son. Thus, the relation between the two testaments is such that the message of the Old Testament is not abrogated, neither is it conflated with or separated from the New Testament. One God has spoken, and we do well to listen to his message confirmed by the incarnate Word and by his Spirit."" --Willem A. VanGemeren, Professor of Old Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Michael Tupek is a self-taught lay theologian, having studied biblical theology, biblical Hebrew and Greek, Jewish studies, philosophy, and history. He resides in New Hampshire with his wife, and works as an IT technician, and is also a professional artist.
