Great question.

The vast majority of Christianity will agree that we are to follow Jesus' earthly ministry as you ask.

Then they will go on to pick and choose what things to follow.

How do you think we got so many denominations today?

Jesus said clearly he was only sent to Israel during his earthly ministry. (Matt 10, Matt 15)

Hardly anyone in Christianity believes this.

The things you listed were directly to Israel, to whom he was ministering. (Compare Rom 15:8 and Rom 15:16)

These things must be rightly divided.

Jesus sent Paul to the Gentiles after Israel rejected their Messiah.

This is because Israel was supposed to be a light to the Gentiles as seen in the OT.

The things you listed cannot save us today.

Salvation today is by grace through faith in the finished work of the cross, not works.

Paul is our Apostle and Paul reveals the good news of the cross.

Gods purpose for Israel is separate and distinct from the purpose he has for the body of Christ.

Today Christianity has basically all moved to the allegorical interpretation of the Bible.

The kingdom Jesus came to set up is Israel's earthly kingdom just like the OT teaches.

Christianity has stolen this from Israel and spiritualized it to "Jesus ruling in our hearts"

Learn to read your Bible literally and all these questions go away.

"But will thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?"

Josef....God bless you for Posting all those things,...But none those things cd save mankind....Absolutely none OF THE WORKS OF the Flesh CAN SAVE US but a New CREATURE...By his mercy His blood ....Not by works of Righteousness which we have done but by the Regeneration of the H.G...Titus 3 : 5 KJV...The washing of regeneration, the renewing of the H.G.....An Israel of God....That Great Promise of multiplication n regeneration of Christ Jesus is the only way there can be an Israel of God.

.....For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision NOR uncircumcision availeth any thing ( nothing ) but a New Creature....Which is the Gift of the H.G. that New Creature...Gal 6: 15 Kjv....Not by Works or No Works...But only by the Blood of the Lamb he saved us.

.....Josef....We should still do all those things...but the only thing that plzs GOD is a NEW CREATURE...Which is the H.G. the Child of PROMISE....That we have to birth via his good seed the living word....Jesus commanded them to be bornagain of an incorruptible seed...Even by his Words....Our new heart and a new spirit is the only thing that plzs God..The H.G....She brought forth a man Child that was caught up to God and to his throne....And this Child will RULE all nations ....The Child is that New Creature....New to us but old to God....They will bring forth things out of their treasure ( our hearts ) things New and old...

.....Jesus said unless ya receive the Kingdom of God as a lil Child you will in no wise enter there in...The Child is the H.G. our New Creature..ok gbu

Amen to that Josef .


Josef's comment on 2022-07-09 19:44:13:

"Teaching them to observe whatsoever I have commanded you."

If you believe Jesus is God then aren't whatever He commanded his Disciples to do be things that we also should do? Baptize, repent, turn the other cheek, love each other, do good, be the salt and light of the world, feed the poor, care for the sick, widows and orphans, visit those in prison, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, give freely to those that need, expect no repayment, be careful that you don't strive after money and the things of this world, live humbly, share, be generous, pray, be careful how you judge, to name some.

Brother Dan's comment on 2021-06-26 13:18:03:

I do not believe the bible specifically states Saturday is the Sabbath. But I have also not seen mention of the other specific days of the week (ie. Wed, Thurs. etc.).

The Jewish people have always observed the Sabbath as Saturday. Jesus was a Jew and he observed Saturday/Sabbath as well.

Most everyone in the world will agree that Sunday is the 1st day of the week. Check all of the dictionary's and they will state that Saturday is the last day of the week.

So the last day, or 7th day of the week is Saturday and has been for centuries.

Here in scripture below reference to Jesus preparation for burial prior to Saturday/Sabbath.

Mark 15:42

"And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,"

Exodus 20:11

"For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."

Luke 4:16

"And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read."

So God rested on the 7th day, and he gave a gift to us, the 4th Commandment, to also rest our body and mind from our normal weekday working activities, among other things to pray, give thanks and reflect on God. A day to breath! It really is a wonderful gift!

God Bless

C, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

Man cannot see himself being something other than what he is now in this flesh.

Flesh and blood CANNOT inherit the next world. We have to be RE-CREATED to inherit the SPIRIT world.

There is no works that we can do to accomplish this.

The WORKS OF CHRIST will bring this about.

John 6:63 It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you the are SPIRIT, and they (the words that are SPIRIT) GIVE LIFE.

The flesh lives in a world of time, the SPIRIT lives in a world where time does not exist.

In the Old Covenant man was given laws,

One being to observe the seventh day as a day of rest; Physical SABBATH.

When the SPIRIT comes to you and HIS WORDS BECOME words of SPIRIT (life); time is no more:

The SABBATH became SPIRIT and we REST in SPIRIT; or we rest IN CHRIST.

We have ceased from OUR WORKS as he ceased from his works.

Hebrews 10:1 For the law was a shadow (not the real thing) of things to come...

Hebrews 4:10 For he that hath entered into HIS REST, he also hath ceased from his works, as God did from his.

Non believers use to say that the day you have set aside for the worship to be the sabbath so let me ask that.why is it that after creation GOD did not say that,everyone to choose his or her day of worship and keep it holy instead he insist on sabbath which is called saturday nowadays if you cant accept christ teaching they will continue missleading you


Dawne Amber's comment on 2013-07-30 13:58:06:

I love the entire Gospel of Matthew. It shows the side of Jesus I LOVE the most.
I totally agree with Anonymous' comment. After becoming an adult and reading the Bible for myself, I was so excited after contemplating and rationalizing with myself I discovered that we were eternal souls that didn't die. I told a few family members about it; saying that they should be happy because we were all God's people. Even though they said they "knew" that the soul lives on, it was almost as if I was "blaspheming" Jesus. It just pains me that people walk around saying they already know the Truth, when they have conflicting beliefs!!!!
It has been said many times throughout the Bible, particularly by Isaiah and Jesus, that the wise man LISTENED and UNDERSTOOD his teachings. I've said it so many times myself. I don't talk for my health, so you're not sparing my feelings by just letting me go on talking while you're ignoring me.

Instead of believing the truth, accepting the truth, these elders would rather lie and save face not realizing that the truth would come out eventually. Actually, the Truth (Jesus) did come out. Even today, some people would rather tell, and believe a lie instead of accepting the truth. We have to always remember the scriptures (if we will), John 14:6 says Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12, (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they; might be saved. (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (12) That they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


Trent's comment on 2012-06-28 05:28:22:

I wonder what the last name was of the other Mary, not Mary Magdalene? Or was Mary Magdalene actually both part of her first name?
