Matthew 15:1-7 Yahweh’s (God’s) Law not Law of Moses

We are often taught to throw away all the Jewish Laws of the Old Testament including but not limited to Dietary Law and Feast Days.  Did you know that the New Testament quotes those “Jewish Laws” over 4000+ times.  In fact the Law isn’t Jewish at all it is Yahweh’s (God’s) Law. This is eye opening to us and hopefully to you.  Notice in the next verse what Yeshua (Jesus) says to the Pharisees.

Matthew 15 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Yeshua (Jesus) from Jerusalem and said, “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat.”  He answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of Yahweh (God) for the sake of your tradition? For Yahweh (God) commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’  But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to Yahweh (God),” he need not honor his father.’ So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of Yahweh (God).

Bet you still didn’t catch that.  We have read this verse a 100 times and just realized it.  Notice that Yeshua (Jesus) refers to the commandments as Yahweh’s not Mosheh‘s (Moses’) commands.  Notice HE actually says it 4 times throughout those verses.  The LAW was Yahweh’s (God’s) Law, not Mosheh‘s (Moses’).  So when we see our Messiah referring to the “commandments” He is talking about all of them, even the commandments given to Moses.  And John quoted Yeshua (Jesus) about keeping ALL OF THEM.

John 14:15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. Again, Yeshua (Jesus) is referring to all of them.
