For I have kept nothing back, but have showed
you the whole counsel of God.

Act 20:27

 

Torah / Pentateuch / The Law
&
“The Ten Commandments”

mosesIn the Bible; Matt 22:36 Yeshua (Jesus) was asked “Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law (Torah)”?

Yeshua’s response to this most important question;  (Matt 22:37-40) 37 “You shalt love Yahweh thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”.

When Yeshua answered in this way, He was clearly expressing an abbreviated summary of what is commonly referred to as “The 10 Commandments”.

The Ten Commandments then are simply a representation of the first five books of the Bible which are often referred to as the Torah, Pentateuch or “The Law”; and of course the remainder of the Bible (Joshua – Revelation) is based upon the principals expressed in “The Ten Commandments” as well .The Ten Commandments then are a summary of agreement that Yahweh God’s people affirm when they enter into covenant with Him.

Unfortunately, few people hear these things in many of today’s “Christian” “churches”. But in years gone by, the Ten Commandments and the Hebrew Roots of the Christian faith were common knowledge and typically taught in America’s churches.

 He that has my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves
me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

John 14:21

Apostle Paul said:
What shall we say then? Is “the law” (Ten Commandments) sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the (Ten Commandments
)“law”: for I had not known lust, except the (Ten Commandments) “law” had said, Thou shalt not covet Rom 7:7. He went on to say that through Yeshua (Jesus); The righteousness of “the law” (God / The Ten Commandments) might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit Rom 8:4.

“But, the moral law contained in the ten commandments, and enforced by the prophets, He [Christ] did not take away. It was not the design of his coming to revoke any part of this. This is a law which never can be broken …. Every part of this law must remain in force upon all mankind, and in all ages; as not depending either on time or place, or any other circumstances liable to change, but on the nature of God and the nature of man, and their unchangeable relation to each other.”Dwight L. Moody
