Was just thinking…
Shaul (Paul) said in 2 Cor. 11:2-5:
2 For I am zealous over you with the zealousness of YAHWEH. For I have promised you to one husband, to present you a pure virgin to Messiah. 3 But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your thoughts should be corrupted from the purity which is in Messiah. 4 For if, indeed one comes to you proclaiming another Yahshua, whom we have not proclaimed, or if you receive another spirit which you have not received, or another good news which you never accepted, you might have listened to him. 5 For I think that I am not in the least inferior to the highest apostles in anything.
This seems very similar to a text I remember as well in Deut 13:
1 If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams rises among you, and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder which he spoke to you occurs, saying, Let us go after other Elohim which you have not known, and let us serve them,
3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams. For YAHWEH your Elohim is testing you, to know if you love YAHWEH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 You shall walk after YAHWEH your Elohim, and you shall fear Him. And you shall keep His commandments, and you shall hear His voice, and you shall serve Him, and you shall cleave to Him. 5 And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall die, because he has spoken apostasy against YAHWEH your Elohim, who is bringing you out of the land of Egypt, and has redeemed you out of the house of slaves, to drive you out of the way in which YAHWEH your Elohim has commanded you to walk. And you shall put away evil from among your midst.
Could it be Shaul (Paul) was teaching Torah (the very thing many believe he taught we have been redeem from) in the “New Testament”? If Deut 13:1-5 is true (it is, after all, part of the Scriptures Shaul was speaking about in 2 Tim. 3:16-17), would it be even possible for Yeshua to teach against the Torah and still be Messiah? If Shaul (Paul) taught against the Torah, wouldn’t that make him a false teacher?
Could we be having the following situation going on?
2Pe 3:15 And consider the long-suffering of our Master as salvation, as also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him; 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them concerning these things, in which some things are hard to understand, which those that are ignorant and unstable pervert there meaning, as also they do the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 Therefore beloved, since you know these things beforehand, guard yourself, lest being led away by the error of the lawless you fall from your own steadfastness. 18 But grow in grace and knowledge of our Master and Savior, Yahshua Messiah and of YAHWEH the Father. To Him be the glory, both now and to the days of eternity. Amen.
