Matt. 15:1-4 15:1 Then came to Yahshua scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of Elohim by your tradition? 15:4 For Elohim commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

  • After we have come to the knowledge of Yahshua we no longer need a schoolmaster.
  • Greek culture Schoolmaster-a trusted slave to teach the young men.
  • After the young men were taught the customs of that time they no longer needed the schoolmaster
  • Torah is part of us now, as is the Messiah.
  • We now live Torah.
  • Yah's law.
  • We have the law of the Spirit to draw us to Yahshua.
  • We have the law of Faith in Yahshua.
  • By living the law of Yah we live in the law of righteousness
  • Living in the law of righteousness through faith we find the law of Yahshua.
