Maran Yeshua Melech HaHaMashiach said to him, "’You shall love HaShem your God with all your heart, all your soul, and with all your resources.’ This is the first and great mitzvah. A second likewise is this, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ The whole Torah and the Prophets depend on these two mitzvot." Mattityahu 22:37-40
The Torah Cannot be Changed by any one: In the 13 Principles of faith of the Jewish faith (composed by the RaMBaM) we find that the ninth principle of Jewish faith has the belief that the Torah given to Moshe (Moses) on Mount Sinai is entirely unchangeable and never to be superseded by another form of Torah. In other words, the revelation of Torah is final and immutable. The text states: “I believe with complete faith that the Torah will not be changed nor will there be another Torah from the Creator, blessed be His Name.”
The RaMBaM explains, “If any prophet comes to alter the Torah, we immediately know that he is a false prophet. It does not matter whether he is Jewish or non-Jewish, or how many signs and miracles he performs. If he says that God sent him to add or subtract a commandment… he is a false prophet. The same is true if he teaches that the commandments were only given for a limited time and not forever.” This is true if some one who passes himself as messiah or even an angel said that the Torah of God is suspended for a time, that the Torah is abolish (no more), or that only parts apply today.
As written in the Besorah HaTovah (Good News of Messiah), Maran Yeshua HaMashiach adhered fully to the highest view of the Torah (as well as the Prophets and the Writings). Yeshua HaNasi (the Prince) Himself is / was a Torah-observant Jew. He did not come to abolish Torah, but rather to fulfill its inner purpose and reveal its ultimate nature (Mattityahu 5:17-18). Yeshua m’Nazareth is the end (the aim) of the Torah. If you do not see or find this fact about Mashiach from the Torah, then you are reading the Torah the wrong way! Yeshua HaMashiach did not come to abolish the Torah, but to bring a higher understanding of Torah, in other words Mashiach’s teachings reveal the inner dimension of the Torah.
Mashiach is the living embodiment of Torah and through the light of Mashiach flows our understanding of Torah. Without the Torah of our Mashiach our understanding of Torah is lacking… Learn some Torah!
