How Jesus views the Torah

Deuteronomy 6:4-8  Hear, O, Israel. The LORD our God is one LORD. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart. And you shall carefully teach them to your sons, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

John 14:6  Jesus sayeth unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
What is that way?
Psalms  119:1  Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law (Torah) of the LORD.

And what is the truth?
Psalms 119:142  Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law (Torah) is the truth.

And what is life?
Proverbs 13:14  The law (Torah) of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

The Helmet of Salvation(Yeshua) covers our head; protecting our eyes, ears, and mouth.

Isaiah 59:17a For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation (Yeshua) upon his head;

Proverbs 7:2  Keep my commandments, and live; and my law (Torah) as the apple of thin eye.

Proverbs 28:9  He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law (Torah), even his prayer shall be abomination! 

Malachi 2:6-9  The law (Torah) of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity, and turned many away from iniquity. “For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge , and people should seek the law (Torah) from his mouth; Foe he is a messenger of the LORD of hosts. But you have departed from the way, you have caused many to stumble at the law (Torah). You have corrupted the covenant of Levi,” says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore I also have made you contemptible and base before all the people, because you have not kept My ways but have shown partiality in the law (Torah).”

Psalms 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD and in His law (Torah) he meditates day and night.

Psalms 119:97  O how I love thy law (Torah)! It is my meditation all the day.

Psalms 119:1  Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law (Torah) of the LORD.

Psalms 119:44,45  So shall I keep thy law (Torah) continually for ever and ever. And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts. 

Isaiah 51:7a  Harken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law (Torah); 

We meditate on Torah, look at Torah, listen to Torah, speak Torah, walk in Torah, seek Torah, delight in Torah, the Torah is in our heart. There is liberty in Torah! For Torah is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. For Yeshua is the living Torah and we have the mind of Messiah! Isn’t it great to know He is the same yesterday, today and forever! He didn’t decide His past teaching was wrong and all messed up so He’d have to come and correct/change it! His initial Word could stand forever! Torah does not mean “law” it means “teaching” and is still good for reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness!!
