|Abraham with Isaac|
The New Testament (testimony) of what was always foretold had not yet been penned as a completed work
Acts 18:28 He was powerfully instructing contrary to the Jews before the crowds while showing from the SCRIPTURES concerning Yeshua, that he is The Messiah.
Acts 18:28 for he powerfully refuted the Jews, publicly showing by the SCRIPTURES that Jesus was the Christ.
Acts 18:28 For he with great force convinced the Jews publicly, shewing by the SCRIPTURES that Jesus was the Christ.
Jesus was Jewish and would not have gone against TORAH...HE IS TORAH or the LAW, or the instructor delivering God's Instructions, God's Torah, God's laws...perfectly! had he have gone against what Moses or even Abraham taught...no Jew in the world would have followed him!
Question: How do we show that Jesus is the Christ or the Messiah using only the Tanakh or if you are GREEK TRAINED...Old Testament.
Paul clearly was able to do this according to the WORD. Equally, most of Paul's letters were written, circulating through the region. Unfortunately, the Greek mindset which was more philosophical (Abstract, if you prefer) was dominant hence, this facilitated a cultural dominance away from an Hebraic identity or original framework. The New Testament survived with the Greek template as opposed to the intent of Rabbi Shaul. Paul, [Rabbi Shaul] quotes the Tanahk more than any other person in the scriptures. He understood who the Messiah was and used the scriptures to reinforce the facts He used the WORD as he wrote his testimony.
|They knew the Scriptures but had mixed into them a religious system. Sort of like exactly what the Gentiles have done too! 36,000 denominations is the best example of how that works.....really!|
