Spiritual Aspect of Torah

in Jesus

Some say Jesus was the word, meaning Torah, who came to Earth as flesh and dwelt among us. Therefore, they apply Torah (books of Moses) legalistically.

However, Jesus taught at a higher spiritual level. He taught a spiritual aspect of Torah.

In the books of Moses, we are told "an eye for an eye." Jesus said this is what the ancients taught, but he went on to say that if someone smites you on the right cheek, turn to him the left also.

In Torah we read that adulterers were to be stoned to death. Yet, when an adulteress was caught in the act and brought before Jesus, he said let him who is without sin throw the first stone. Since no one was left to condemn her, Jesus did not condemn her either and let her go. Here he taught a higher spiritual aspect of the Torah. He was not legalistic in applying the Word of Torah.

In Torah, Moses said to give a wife a letter of divorcement if he was leaving her. But Jesus said Moses only told them to do that because of the hardness of their hearts. He taught that if a man put away his wife, except for fornication, and married someone else, he committed adultery. Matthew 19:8.

How much of the Torah was written as it was because of the hardness of the hearts of the Israelites? Apparently they were not walking the high level spiritual path of Abraham. They had moved away from the wonderful place of walking in harmony with our heavenly Father.

Jesus taught us to love one another. He taught that it is through unconditional love that we gain eternal life. Luke 10:25-28.

We are entering a new age. Humanity is evolving into a higher spiritual level of being. Those who enter the world scene following Armageddon and the Great Purification (prophesied by Hopi,) will walk the Red Road of unconditional love. According to Malachi, others will be burned to stubble. We read there also that the righteous will walk on the ashes of the wicked.

It is time to invite unconditional love to reside in our hearts if we would enter into life.
