This study is done by Torah scholar and teacher Tim Hegg from the Torah Resource Institute. This is a long study but it really is an eye-opener in that he examines the oral and written laws during the “pre-destruction” period i.e. during Yeshua’s time here. You will see that the written Torah is the only authoritative word sanctioned by YHVH and that the oral traditions of today were not taught by followers of The Way. He goes into detail on such topics as:
The Oral Torah – A Definition
Written and Oral Torah: Keeping Them Distinct From Each Other
What Motivated the Sages to Require that the Traditions be Transmitted Orally and Not Written?
When Was the Oral Torah Transformed From Orality to a Written Entity?
How Widely Was the Oral Torah Studied in the Pre-Destruction Era?
Yeshua and the Oral Torah
What is the Seat of Moses?
The Apostolic Scriptures: Written, Not Repeated
The Ascendency of the Oral Torah Over the Written Torah
