POSTED 07 JUNE, 2017 reproduced from The New Testament Validates Torah MAXIMUM EDITION Pastor: John 13:34: Jesus Christ gave us a new law of love to replace the laws of the Old Testament. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” Many people can be caught completely off guard, or not quite know how to react, when various Christian teachers or pastors communicate that the Messiah came to give a new law, a law that is only of “love.” The challenge is not with […]

John 1:17

UPDATED 07 JUNE, 2017 reproduced from The New Testament Validates Torah MAXIMUM EDITION Pastor: John 1:17: The Law was given through Moses; grace and truth realized through Christ. “For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Yeshua the Messiah.” In referencing John 1:17, it is easy to detect that the pastor is relying upon a rather simplistic understanding of God’s Law and God’s grace, presenting them as being polar opposites. Many, who have read John 1:17 isolated, have come to the false conclusion that grace somehow did not exist in the period of the “Old […]

And they said to her, ‘Woman, why are you weeping?’ She said to them, ‘Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.’ When she had said this, she turned around […]

So the other disciples were saying to him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’ But he said to them, ‘Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.’ After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them.

For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.

If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath? Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.’” 7:21 The dialogue between Yeshua the Messiah and various Jewish religious leaders, in […]
