of the Hebrew Roots in the Early Church!




House of David is a Hebrew Roots based Educational Fellowship in Richmond Virginia (currently meeting in Mechanicsville) that benefits the local community by teaching the Hebraic perspective of The Holy Scriptures. Our desire is to understand the events of the early church, more specifically, the first century church, and draw from that how to order our lives today.


At our fellowship in central Virginia, we have families attending that are within a 100 mile radius of Richmond which includes Appomattox, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Tappahannock, Gloucester, Suffolk, and Tidewater (made up of Norfolk, Va. Beach, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Newport News, and Hampton). Currently, we meet on the first and third Sabbaths (sometimes referred to as the Christian Sabbath) of each month. Our outreach is not limited to just the local congregation near Richmond but to all the 50 states in the union and whosoever in any country in the world through our Members at Large ministry.

Hebrew Roots and the Hebraic Teachings of Christ

Whereas most of Christianity believes that the instructions of our Heavenly Father (also referred to as "God's Righteous Standard" (Romans 3:20; 7:7)) were done away with at the cross, We believe the Torah of God emanates from the abiding goodness of God's nature and thus stands forever, God being unchangeable. The Law of Christ, therefore, are these instructions, interpreted correctly, or, looking at it from another angle, God's manual of how a redeemed society functions and lives.

Concerning our observance of the Torah, We believe it is a reflection of His Divine Nature resident within us. Joining in with ALL the churches in Asia in the first and second century, we affirm that the Gospel is the Torah, unimpeded by man's traditions, while accepting Yeshua as the final atoning sacrifice for our Justification, being Supernaturally changed into His image by the Spirit of Holiness.

Hebrew Roots Teaching & the Hebraic Perspective

Messianic...
The Wikipedia article on Messianic Judaism states that it is "a religious movement that adds to Evangelical Christian theology some elements of Jewish terminology and ritual." It goes on to state that "salvation is only achieved through acceptance of Yeshua as one's savior." Finally, it states that "Mainstream Christian groups generally accept Messianic Judaism as a form of Christianity."

While being considered Messianic simply means (to us) that we believe Yeshua is the prophesied Messiah, there are other differences great and small between Hebrew Roots as we see it and Messianic Judaism. This is why we have chosen to use the term Hebrew Roots or Hebraic Perspective when referring to our beliefs. Another way to identify us would be as a Torah Observant congregation or a Torah Observant assembly. Unlike Messianic Judaism, we believe the Torah is equally for all believers whether they were Jewish or Gentile before coming to faith in Yeshua. Therefore, this places us outside the purview of the Noahide laws which teaches that all that is required for Gentiles that want to follow the One True God are the 7 given to Noah.

Throughout this site, we have made our beliefs quite clear and have provided evidence (and will continue to add even more evidence as time permits) on why we believe what we believe and how we arrived at where we are. We look forward to input from the body of believers to interact with us concerning this Hebrew Roots position.

Concerning our view of the Scriptures
We believe in the supremacy of the Scriptures as the final authority for faith and halachah. Though we are sometimes viewed as having a na´ve approach to Scripture, reading and studying it outside of its literary context, just the opposite is the case. We receive the Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God that, by His all-controlling providence, was written by men who were borne along by the Ruach HaKodesh (2Pet 1:20-21). As such, we recognize both the divine and the human element that combined to produce the Bible. Therefore, we work hard to understand the language of any given biblical text in its linguistic milieu, meaning we take seriously the grammatical, syntactical, and literary structure through which the author communicated his meaning. This, of course, requires that we work hard to understand the historical context in which the text was written. But we begin with the premise that within the Bible itself God has given us His selfrevelation and thus His will for our lives as we seek to sanctify His Name upon the earth.
