Yeshua is the prophet like Moses. He is also the teacher like Moses. When Yeshua taught Torah, He did so effortlessly. Torah rolled out of Him. Yeshua taught Torah so naturally that Bible readers unfamiliar with the Torah scarcely ever realize that He was doing it. He never formally announced to His disciples, “Gather around, we are going to learn some Torah now.” Instead, all of Hiswords and teachings were pure Torah, insights into Torah, interpretations on Torah and implications of Torah. It was the same Torah Moses received at Sinai and spoke at the Jordan, but it was ever new inthe mouth of the Master. The words of Yeshua are pure Torah, like the words of Moses beside the Jordan. They are the words of life, living water springing forth. Turn them over and turn them over again. Everything is in them.
Yeshua’s disciples knew the Torah, too. They had grown up with the Torah. Yet they did not always see it as He saw it. It was not always new in their eyes every day. AfterHis resurrection, “He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.” (Luke 24:45)
The Spirit of Yeshua is still with His disciples. He still opens our minds and makes the Torah new in our eyes.. He told His disciples, “Every scribe [of Torah] who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a head of a household, whobrings out of his treasure things new and old.” (Matthew 13:52)
