#Israel #law #prophets #Yeshua
I did read Numbers 31, however, it is about the Israelites once again in complete disobedience to GOD’s Word. I also read the Gospel of Matthew (not quite half).
Yeshua explains the real meaning of the Law, the prophets and where our treasure should like, not in stuff or ourselves but in Him, storing up treasure in heaven. I truly believe GOD alone is our treasure, not crowns… He quotes the Tenakh heavily.
This, by the way, was highly disliked teachings by religious leaders, and likely freaked out the regular folk who couldn’t fathom being better than the Pharisees.
I read chap 1-11. Remember, Matthew, the writer of this Gospel, was a tax collector (vilified like the IRS…) but 1. Jewish 2. meticulous. He wrote the genealogy of the earthly father, why? Because it was tradition of Jewish history. Which is why you will find a difference between Matthew and Luke. Luke was a physician, again meticulous but a gentile, so he like doctors have done like, forever, took a full history and Mary’s genealogy was listed.
