A central Jewish objection to Jesus is the New Testament’s…

A central Jewish objection to Jesus is the New Testament’s position on Torah-observance – “If the New Testament abolishes Torah, it is false. The New Testament abolishes Torah. Therefore, the New Testament is false.”

Here is a video that gives AN answer to this problem as posed by Romans 14:14,20. Kosher law remains for Jews, and is optional for gentiles – if they do it with correct understanding. This answers the Jewish objection and counters the dangerous claims made by “Hebrew Roots”/”One Law” groups. That said, the position offered by this video will still be controversial for many, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the matter. Especially if you think there is a better way to address this Jewish objection than what Dr. Rudolph’s argument offers.

    1. The Ten Commandments are the Old Covenant: Exodus 34:27-28;

    The 10 commandments were the first/old covenant! This is clear from both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

    The tables of the Ten Commandments are part of the abolished first covenant:

    Hebrews 8:13
    When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. ”

    Hebrews 9:1, 4
    “Now even the first covenant had … the tables of the covenant”

    Exodus 34:27-28:
    “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.” So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.”

    Deuteronomy 4:13:
    “So He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, that is, the Ten Commandments; and He wrote them on two tablets of stone.

    Deuteronomy 5:2-3:
    “The Lord our God made a covenant with us at Horeb. The Lord did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, with all those of us alive here today.”

    2. The Old Covenant was abolished: Hebrews 8:13

    The law is weak, useless and makes nothing perfect. (Hebrews 7:18-19)

    God has found fault with it and created a better covenant, enacted on better promises. (Hebrews 8:7-8)

    It is obsolete, growing old and ready to vanish. (Hebrews 8:13)

    It is only a shadow of good things to come and will never make someone perfect. (Hebrews 10:1)

    Jesus Gave Us A New Covenant To Live By: The New Covenant Is Superior To The Old Covenant In Every Way!

    Hebrews 7:22
    This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant.

    Hebrews 8:6-7 But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second.

    Hebrews 12:24
    and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

    Hebrews 13:20
    Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,

    3. Therefore: The Ten Commandments are abolished!

    Christians are told to live under the New Covenant ‘law of Christ’. Not the 10 Commandments.

    It is a New Covenant

    Are you a New Covenant believer?

    God has had different laws under each of the different covenants. That is just how it is. Each covenant makes its own laws.

    Each covenant is a new legal contract. A contract has to have all of its requirements spelled out in the contract. We are never old to keep the Law of Moses in the New Covenant. Just the opposite!
