Do you realize that in order to title this as I have that it requires that Jesus was a perfect keeper of Torah, otherwise He was not the perfect Lamb of God. Had Jesus not kept Torah perfectly; then the Sanhedrin would have been justified to kill Him. They were not.

We overlook much within our own understanding; which translates into our teaching. We do this in order to justify our doctrine. Our own understanding is not God’s. We like to think that the perfect Jesus was called that because He was sinless, and He was, but that also meant that He kept the law.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (KJV)

Jesus was perfect in the keeping of the whole of the law. We are under a new covenant which also involves the law. The cross brought in that covenant.

Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) (KJV)

Believers are involved in a process. The new covenant is the promise of the law being written on our hearts. The Holy Spirit given to us to lead us into all truth is the one who changes us into a vessel for the Lord’s use. The Apostles refer to themselves as Bond-servants. We are committed to Christ. He is in the process of teaching and changing us. You and I are in Christ, and are now possessors of Israel’s promises and covenants.

Ephesians 2:12 [remember] that at that time you were separated from Christ [excluded from any relationship with Him], alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise [with no share in the sacred Messianic promise and without knowledge of God’s agreements], having no hope [in His promise] and [living] in the world without God. 13 But now [at this very moment] in Christ Jesus you who once were [so very] far away [from God] have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (AMP)

The blood of Jesus shed for you. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. We are new creatures because of the cross, which Jesus used to abolish for His people the need for old covenant blood sacrifice. The law however is not done away with, it is written on our hearts. This is God’s doctrine concerning who we are in Christ, related to us from His word.
