But it ALSO says . . .

Out of a little over 1000 verses in Mattityahu (Matthew), 112 of them or around 10% of them are direct quotations and references to verses in TaNaKh (Torah-Nevi’im-Ketuvim: in other words, the Old Testament).

When we arrive at chapter 4, we find the Jew Yeshua (Jesus) quoting the text of the Tanakh while facing the Tempter (Satan).  There are 6 verses used in this exchange between the Tempter and Yeshua.  Make no mistake, Satan knows the Tanakh.  He quoted it to Yeshua.  Yeshua showed Satan something we would all do well to understand when He said the following 4 words:

But it also says,”

So many seem to miss the significance of these simple words.  How so? you might ask.  I can answer it by stating and asking a question concerning the question “How so?”:

How many people build a theology based upon a verse or two in the text without considering “But it also says,”?

Let me ask a more pointed question based on the previous question:

How are you going to refute or rebuke any “tempter,” or “teacher,” or “teaching,” or “self-proclaimed prophet,” or “counter-missionary,” or “doctrine,” or “theology,” or “supposition,” or “religion,” or “movement,” or “healer” or “cult” or “manifestation” or “spiritual gift” that would lead you astray if you don’t know what “it also says?”

They may sound and look authoritative and biblically sound when you are introduced to them initially, however, knowing what “it also says” and understanding what “it also means” is the only real defense you have against any of the long list above.

In Chapter 5, we find the Jew Yeshua sitting down and teaching the Tanakh to his talmidim (disciples) as a result of seeing the crowds of people.

We might be tempted to think this is a private teaching or precursor as it were before He is to address the crowd so that they know what he is going to say and why.

We might be tempted to think this is mostly to Greeks, but many of His statements such as “your Father,” “like the pagans,” and “when you fast” indicate that it is mostly, if not all,  to Jews.  I would hope that you would understand why I point this out.  Did these Jews hearing this become“Christians” when they heard this?  Did the talmidim (disciples)? Do I need to remind you that Christian was first used some 30 years later in Antioch?  I do this so that you can see that Yeshua was a Rabbi (teacher) and Rabbi Yeshua is teaching Judaism – He is a Jew teaching other Jews lessons from the Jewish Torah, the Jewish Nevi’im and the Jewish Ketuvim.

By chapter 7, we find conformation that he was also teaching the crowds (“the crowds were amazed”).

We confirm he was teaching Jews (“He was not instructing them like “their” Torah-teachers”).

This is significant to understand because the Jewish Rabbi Yeshua didn’t teach these things to do away with Judaism, He taught these things to correct the perversions within Judaism!  Some of my Jewish brothers may be bristling up right about now – quit bristling!  Jeremiah and many others did the same thing! Man perverts God throughout history and needs the correction that comes from the loving Father!  Jews need it, Christians need it, Messianics need it.  No one is immune.  We ALL need it!

Ironically, Yeshua came to correct  wrong thinking and wrong doing like many of the prophets before Him, however, some false religions don’t understand this concept because they start their religion based on a new book that their “prophet” writes that supersedes and takes the place of the “corrupted” Tanakh.  The Tanakh is not corrupted!  Let me be clear – any religion that throws away even part of the Tanakh is a false religion – period!  I make no excuses for this stance.  If your religion teaches that the Tanakh is corrupt and therefore needs to be done away and replaced with your own auto-biographical personal prophecy, then I would say you are not only a false teacher, but you are a narcissistic megalomaniac as well!

For some of my Jewish brothers that don’t know what is in the Brit Chadashah (New Covenant), they would say, “Bill, you contradict yourself!” Do I brothers?  I understand why you would say this.  I understand that some of you are very skeptical about Christianity because some parts of Christianity say the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people.  I understand that if you see some in Christianity throw away the Jews, that you would see that as tantamount to throwing away the Tanakh and its promises to the Jewish people.  I see it that way too.  God’s promises don’t fail! Just know this, all of Christianity doesn’t believe that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people.  Many Christians read the Tanakh and accept its promises from God concerning his covenantal people the Jews without trying to insert themselves into those promises “in place of” the Jews.

You may say, “But they have thrown away Shabbat (Sabbath), they eat unclean animals, etc!”

Brothers, I would approach it in the same kind of way that Yeshua did when He said “But it also says,” by asking a simple question,

“Who among any of us is 100% Torah observant?”

We are all called by God to love Him, trust Him and obey Him.  Who of us can say that we do this in ALL things?

The Jewish Rabbi Yeshua was the prophesied Mashiach.  You will see some of that in the text below.  You will not see someone doing away with Judaism, you will see someone teaching and confirming Judaism.

For my Christian brothers that don’t understand Judaism, I hope that you will see it too.  I will do more of these on the other books in the Brit Chadashah in the future.
