strangely, there are actually a good amount of christians that teach the law of moses is done away with but that there will be a third temple and sacrifices in the millennial kingdom. seems EXTREMELY inconsistent to me.
take a look at this website: http://www.gotquestions.org/millennial-sacrifices.html
Thanks brother Yekhezkel ;-)
i will be sure to look into all the verses you have supplied here!
But i have shown him a very insightful study on circumcision and the Apostles already and next i will show him a couple of false JW's prophecies that never came out & the Third Temple/Zekhariyah 14 & i will show him that what he thinks is "the new and revolutionary law of christ" is actually Messiah just mingeling the best and most godly parts of Pharisee/Essene already existing halakhot..
if he still does not accept Nazarene Judaism then, (that would be a sign to me that says eventhough he's my friend... "brainwasheeeed!!") then i will show him the verses you gave to me and if he still won't budge then i will let him give me all the verses that alledgedly say to him "Torah is done and certainly circumcision and Shabbat" and i will show the true Nazarene Biblical perspective on it which will clearly be pro- and not contra-Torah ;-)
thanks amen amen, and i will keep you guys posted on the discussion ;-)
I always point people to either Psalm 19 or Psalm 119.
Then I ask them, "Would you rather take the word from the king (David), or the opinion of the rabbi (Paul)?"
Never mind the fact that most (if not all) of Paul's references are completely misunderstood.
The animals in Acts 10 were not real, they were a vision. Like most visions of unreal animals, they REPRESENTED something. What did they represent? Chapter 11 tells us they represented the Gentiles who were coming to see Kefa (Peter). (To understand why these animals represented Gentiles, see the Book of Enoch, the "Apocalypse of Animals" section). Kefa was not being told to "arise kill and eat" the Gentiles. The command to "arise kill and eat" meant to arise kill and eat [a kosher animal] as part of the normal hospitality of recieving a guest into your home (See Gen. 18:1f for example).
Dag, they don't seem to know our laws, they don't keep our holidays...indeed very true what you said james but i don't get why so many people read Acts 10 as "we can eat everything, even pork woopie!!" i mean Keefa explains his vision clearly in the text itself that it is about previous unclean gentiles that are now clean for recieving Messiah and Torah...
