27 thoughts on “Yeshua Is More Than The Torah

  1. This is SO helpful to me. This message finds me within a month or two of “discovering” my roots as a Christian. This message probably saved me from YEARS of stumbling and false thinking. Thank you Paul.

  2. Yeshua IS Torah, if you do not know Torah then you do not know Yeshua. To seek after Yeshua is to seek after Torah, to love YAH is to love his instruction and to seek after it constantly.

    • Romans 3:20-22

      20
      Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works
      of the TORAH; rather, through the TORAH we become conscious of our sin.
      21
      But now APART (CRUCICAL WORD) from the TORAH the righteousness of God
      has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This
      righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

      CONCLUSION
      – Jesus is MUCH more than Torah. Pay attention to 21st verse – APART
      FROM TORAH the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ!

      So Torah doesn’t equal to Jesus

  3. I absolutely agree with this message. I am trying to keep a balance in Jesus along with everyday modern life with the Torah attached.

  4. Yes we need Jesus so much, him fully we can trust through life, and through death, and in eternity. Only his righteousness exceeds the scribes and Pharisees. Christ in you, the hope of glory!

  5. I have to say–this is one of the most important videos that Paul has put out. It needed to be said. We don’t need to be feeding any more demons of religion–in or out of the Messianic/Hebraic Community. I don’t always agree with him (but most of the time, I do)–this vid should be shared far and wide. Praise Yahweh forever.

  6. Yeshua is the foundation and our works are like a filthy rag…if we build upon another foundation than Yeshua then our works will not sustain the fire….

  7. “Yahshua IS THE TORAH. “By this we know that we LOVE the children of Yahweh, when we LOVE Yahweh and keep his commandments. For this IS THE LOVE of Yahweh that we keep his commandments, and his commandments are not grievous.” (1John 5:2-3)
    The “righteousness”of the Pharisees… NOT the love of the Pharisees. When we “love our enemy” that means we do not steal, covet or commit adultery with their spouse, etc.. My bible says, “Obedience is better than sacrifice.”
    “And this IS LOVE that we follow his commandments, and this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love.”(2John vs. 6)
    Read Matthew 15:22-28. Yahshua does not seem very loving toward the women and “answered her not a word… But he answered and said, Is not meet to take the children’s bread and to cast it to dogs.” Not nice. Man’s love and Yahweh’s love are NOT the same. The more I love Yahweh and I’am like “a servant,” the more I am able to truly, “love one another.”(“brethren”=those, “who do the WILL of my Father”) Again, Yahshua IS the Torah and the Torah is Yahweh’s COVENANT and/or MARRIAGE with us. PLEASE, be careful with this and read 1John, all 5 chapters. Ask Teddy! Shalom

    • He basically called her a “dog.” I thought the point was he came, “but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Nowhere did I say anything about not being kind or helpful, in fact I said we should “be servants.” My point is Yahshua IS the Torah/The Living word, the WORD made flesh. Literally!
      “After those days, says Yahweh, I will put my law in there inward parts, and write it in their hearts, and will be there God and they shall be MY people.”(Jer. 31:33) It seems VERY important to Yahweh. He kicked them ALL out of the land, scattered them and destroyed two temples because of this. I think it’s BOTH!

    • +Jack Kester there is both the context of the Gospels as a whole, and related to this same topic, as well as the very terms used that should be better understood to properly comprehend the ideas involved.

      to use them to say we should treat the meaning of love to be a form of indifferent and unemotional love, is not accurate nor consistent with the meaning found in these verses or for that matter any other on the topic of loving others (e.g. Luke 10:33 – 36, and a Samaritan was by the reckoning of that time a ‘pagan imposter’, so note who this identity was contrasted with).

      firstly Jesus is saying he is personally sent to Israel, not to the world, that his time on Earth was exclusively directed towards those of Israel. This is a very important idea to understand, and so when Jesus sent his disciples out to first proclaim the Messiah’s guidance and that the Messiah was present in Israel, Jesus told them to only go to those of Israel:

      These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

      But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
      (Matthew 10:5 – 6)

      but is this to say that the Messiah’s mission was not for the world, or that the Messiah showed no compassion to others besides those of Israel ? Needless to say this idea is the very opposite to what the Gospels teach us:

      And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

      Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

      Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
      (Matthew 28:18 – 20)

      so even the closing verses of the first Gospel show us everything Jesus taught is for *all* believers, that it is not exclusively for the Jew nor anyone else, but those who keep the words and teachings of the Messiah:

      But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

      And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

      For *whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother*.
      (Matthew 12:48 – 50)

      the meaning here is indeed inclusive, we are all to keep the teachings and guidance of the Messiah. The point made that Jesus was sent only to Israel stands true, yet is often misused. These verses mean Jesus was personally present for Israel, that was his mission to call in as much of Israel as would heed the Messiah in actual person. It does not mean, and has not meant Jesus’ guidance (the teachings of the law) and role as Saviour was only for Israel:

      And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
      (Isaiah 49:6)

      moreover we can see important examples where it is those not even of the Tribes of Israel who Jesus not only assisted but specifically praised:

      When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

      And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
      (Matthew 8:10 – 11)

      there is a continual theme here, one that begins very early in the Tanakh (‘Old Testament’) and continued in the Gospels, but many take only limited verses even as the Bible shows that all who keep God’s ways are children and belong among Israel (Exodus 12:48 – 49, Leviticus 19:34, Leviticus 25:35 – e.g. as a Samaritan).

      so we must be very careful with how we understand Jesus’ role, the purpose and value of the teachings of the law for all who would live according to God’s good will, and also, by extension, how it is we can truly fulfil the law by loving others as ourselves:

      And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then *thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner*; that he may live with thee.
      (Leviticus 25:35)

      as to Jesus calling the woman a dog, to read more broadly what is said that there is a difference between the children and dogs, and it is only rightful that the children be fed rather than taking their food and giving it to dogs. But more than that, the word used is not the same word for “dog” as found in various other places, rather the meaning here is ‘little dog’ or in other words puppy, more generally the meaning to signify a pet (and not dogs in the earlier senses found in the Bible that were stray pack animals).

      even with the notable use of strong contrasts in Hebraic sayings which are not to be taken literal except to understand the essential gist being communicated this statement is not equivalent to calling someone a dog, it is saying they are in comparison likened to pets whereas it is the children that must be fed first (Proverbs 12:10 on the topic of animals and our relationship to them). Jesus knew the woman’s heart and allowed her the opportunity to express her humble wisdom (although not always explicitly stated, the opportunity to speak sincerely or not is often evident in the texts: John 4;16 – 18), wisdom that persists with us today and which we should all, Jewish or otherwise, hope to sincerely learn from (Micah 6:8, Zephaniah 2:3, Numbers 12:3). God loves us all and offers spiritual guidance for all who would be genuine and humble, and will learn to keep the teachings of the Messiah !

      Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
      (Matthew 11:29)

    • I’m not understanding where you’re getting “unemotional and indifference” from. Unless you’re talking about Yahshua’s reaction to the woman and the disciples wanting to send her away. My POINT is again, “Yahshua IS the Torah” you CAN’T separate them. He IS the WORD. That’s all I’am saying. The Father’s Word says, “if you LOVE ME you will keep my Commandments…” This is not my opinion. It also says, “this IS THE LOVE of Yahweh that we keep his commandments” again, not my opinion. I definitely think we need to have mercy and compassion, etc. . I do think, “obedience is better than sacrifice” too. Yahweh first, then people. Without HIM I can’t TRULY love people with the RIGHT motivation. I want to please HIM and not people. Remember, “the heart is deceitfully wicked above all things and who can know it?” We must be careful and be led by His Word(Yahshua) and His Spirit(Yahweh). Sincerely, take care brother and shalom to you.

    • Jack you are so right. This msg is false teaching. Yeshua is Torah, no Torah, no Yeshua. If they are preaching Jesus only, it is NOT the same Yeshua.

  8. Yeshua is the manifestation of the heart of G-d on earth. And walk as he walked is difficut sometimes, but not impossible. I desire to pursue this, but I admit is hard sometimes

  9. That is a oxymoron and your view is not what I am trying to please. I really care what you want to see , you can do nothing for me. Wake up and listen to what you are saying.

  10. 2:38 “I want you to know Me, more than I want burnt offerings.”

    Amen. Praise God.

    ..Oh, but wait! You don’t pronounce Yeshua’s name correctly! 😉 lol (satire)….
