The Torah has never been done away with or even diminished. It stands in perfect fullness today as the revealed path of righteousness that preceeded Creation. Selah.
The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
Psalms 19:7 NASB
…. then, ‘keep His Covenant and remember His precepts to DO them.’
(Yeshua/Jesus only offers freedom back into Covenant, not freedom from Covenant…)
Multiple points made in yesterday’s post about professor Daniel I. Block’s essay have been running through my head. The major one is one I’ve pondered before but am again relishing.
Simply, the truth recorded in Torah has not and cannot change. When יהיה said to keep His feasts forever (4x in Lev. 23), that is unchanging truth. When יהיה said to keep the seventh-day Sabbath forever (Ex. 31:16-17), that is unchanging truth. It can’t change, else He is a liar, and He cannot lie (Titus 1:2).
Therefore, if someone tells you these have changed, that person is lying. Period. (Now, they may be doing so in ignorance as I once was, but it is still lying.) Gently correct them with this thought: Does (or, can) God lie? Concerning the Torah, He says it is truth and everlasting righteousness.
