The Laws of Yahuwah, Moses, and Yahushua are All the Same

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

In Mark's account of the rich young ruler Yahushua says – you know the commandments and then he starts to cite some of them. He gives six of them in Mark 10:19. Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and mother. Here, it is very crucial to note that five out of these six are found in the Ten Commandments listed verbatim in Exodus 20:12-16 and in Deuteronomy 5:16-20. Those are five out of the six, but not the commandment ‘do not defraud’.

‘Do not defraud’ is not found in the list of the Ten Commandments - that comes from Leviticus 19:13. The King James Version uses the word ‘defraud’ and it says thou shalt not defraud thy neighbor, neither rob him. The wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Some people get paid every two weeks or monthly and it's okay to have that agreement. If we're keepers of Torah, that agreement should come with the caveat that if a worker wants to be paid for that day's labor, it should be done. Most of the time a worker is not as wealthy as the employer and so they need the money right away. Some people have a hard time stretching their money. It is Yahuwah’s way that they should be paid daily to meet their needs on a timely basis. Other translations say do not oppress your neighbor, do not exploit, do not cheat, do not take advantage of your neighbor. What that means is to withhold pay from someone who has worked for you for that day. It is very important that we make note of this, because it shows that the Messiah was not telling the rich young ruler just to keep only the Ten Commandments. This is a popular teaching amongst some people that claim to keep the law. They say - keep the 10 and you're in - just keep the 10 Commandments, it is all that is necessary. We know you've got to keep the 10 commandments, but, they'll say, the other commandments are the laws of Moses. They put a differentiation between the Law of Yahuwah / the Decalogue and Moses's law which they also refer to as ‘the ceremonial law’ or the ‘handwriting’ that was against us. That is a false differentiation, there's no difference between Yahuwah's Law, the Law of Moses and the Law of Christ Yahushua. The reason it's called the Law of Moses is because Moses was the one who went up on the mountain, visited with Yahuwah, even had the glory of Yahuwah brighten up his face and brought the law written on the 2 tablets. Then Moses wrote in a book, the remainder of the law, spoken to him by Yahuwah. Yahuwah gave Israel [and the mixed multitude that was also present at Mt. Sinai] His whole law through the agency of prophet Moshe. So that's why it's called the Law of Moses, not because Moses made up laws apart from Yahuwah. So, there should be no differentiation apart from HOW the Law of Yahuwah was written and delivered.
