Rabbi Yeshua was and is a Torah observant Jew. So I ask the question, why would he set that example and tell all who followed him, not to follow his example? Yeshua proclaimed at the Sermon on the mount in Matthew 5 to be a light to all men so that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in Heaven. I say that your good works are keeping God's Commandments.
"Let you light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I came to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets (Nevi'im); I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass away until all is accomplished (Heaven or earth pass away). Whoever annuls one of the least of these commandments and so teaches others, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven." Matt. 5:16-20 NASB
I know the Torah and the Prophets specifically say the same thing, that the Law/Torah of God is eternal and applies to the Jews and all who would join in with them to serve and worship our Great God and King. I would like to hear some comments from those who agree and from those who do not agree.
