Yeshua (Jesus) is the Sheriff and HE has set us free from being condemned by the Torah (Law). Just as the Sheriff would expect us to follow the local laws, Yeshua (Jesus) expects us to follow Torah since the moment HE “freed us” by dying for us. The difference is we have the ability to repent for breaking HIS law. This does not mean we are free to quit following the Torah (Law). HE set those precepts in place to help lead us to living a “clean” life and be an example to others. We are often taught through mis-interpretations of Paul’s writtings that the (Torah) Law is gone. Remember this verse:
Romans 3:31 Do we then nullify the Torah through the belief (In Yeshua)? Let it not be! On the contrary, we establish the (Torah) Law.
Quick tid bit: the Word Law comes from the Greek word NOMOS. Technically the word Torah does not mean Law but we have been misled by the Greeks into believeing it does. The word Torah (1st Five books of the Old Testament) means INSTRUCTIONS. In the very expressive HEBREW language it is an term in archery that the archer aims for. In English that would be the BULLSEYE. SO let’s restate that.
Torah = Instructions = The mark we should aim for!!!!
