This is part two of a two part Essay.

For this Torah Portion, I discuss that Israel was not permitted to have multiple worship centers, but to have one worship center where Jehovah established habitation.

I also discuss that the Tabernacle seems to have been located in different locations, but ultimately the worship center came to be in the city of David.

For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 4.5; 4.13-14, 4.15-18, 4.19.

In this essay, I will discuss that God is the originator of the words/sayings that Moses imparted to Israel, and that the Torah is for the Israelites.

I will discuss that the covenant was on stone but the new covenant is on the heart, and that with the stone covenant God used Moses to impart the teachings, but with the new covenant it is God Himself that does the impartation.

I will discuss the prohibition of making images, including some application for disciples of Jesus.

I will discuss the concept that what the Torah prohibits for Israel is not necessarily prohibited for all other nations.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 4.5; 4.13-14, 4.15-18, 4.19.

Deuteronomy 4.1-2

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

For this Torah Portion, I look specifically at Deuteronomy 4.1-2.

In this essay, I will discuss that Moses was an instructor of Israel and that Israel was the instructed. In this discussion, I will reveal that was what Israel wanted, but that arrangement led to difficulties between the instructor and the instructed.

I will discuss the concept of the new covenant prophecy and that the arrangement of instruction is prophesied to change.

I will discuss that God instructed Israel through Moses not to add to or take away from the Torah. I will discuss some aspects of Jesus and his teachings in light of that commandment from Torah as it relates to one of Jesus statements about Torah and the Prophets.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 4.1-2.

Discussing the supposition: Because polygamy is sinful…

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Given the nature of my stance on Biblical matrimony I find myself in interesting discussions. This is a presentation of a part of discussion I had with someone where we were Discussing the supposition: Because polygamy is sinful….

The discussion began by being focused on the question: What should be done in cases of polygamy, where they want to come to Christ?

I became part of the dialogue because I offered a counterpoint about polygamy, articulating that polygamy is not sin.

Their belief is that polygamy is sin, that Jesus teaches that polygamy is sin, and therefore polygamy needs to be repented of when coming to have faith in Jesus.

I interact with them, giving them the idea that polygamy is not sin and polygamy is nothing that needs to be repented of because the Scripture do not specifically identify polygamy as sin.

In my presentation of this, I provide some additional comments where I believe it clarifies or lends help to the original discussion.
