The Law and The Son

Thought For The Week 136

A Jewish man reading at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem

As I read the Psalm again recently I was challenged by the way the writing throbs with love and respect for the Torah; touched by the thought that the Torah was Yahweh’s revelation to Israel of Himself, it was what they had, what they knew!  I asked myself what it must have been like to relate to Yahweh through His Law, rather than through His Son.  When Yahshua came He lived that Law, He demonstrated the love which floods it.  Yahweh gave His Torah to Israel, under the Old Covenant, and His Son to Israel [and us] under the New Covenant.  Even so, there is an indissoluble connection between them, for Yahshua came to fulfil the Law and to gift those of us who believe with the power to live by its terms by writing it on our hearts. (Jeremiah 31:33)

I wonder if we fully appreciate just how interconnected they are?  All that Yahweh put into His Law foreshadows all that He gave to us through His Son.  The Torah speaks to us of Yahshua through the laws, the sacrifices, the standards, the Feasts, the prophets, and Yahshua upheld and fulfilled all that the Law requires.  To know Yahshua is to have the Law of Yahweh in our hearts.  The same adoration and passion one feels in Psalm 119 is, in the New Covenant, directed towards Yahshua by those who love Him.

Writing about this Psalm the NIV study Bible states, “The author had a theme that filled his soul, a theme as big as life, that ranged the length and breadth and height and depth of a person’s walk with [Yahweh].”

Read our latest thought for the week...We Need To Belong

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
