3 What s on Tap Defining Called by His name Does this definition imply more than just moral laws? Is that possible for Gentiles joining Israel? Are the prophetic statements clear? Other witnesses Colossians 2:16-17: IAMCS & FFOZ How did it turn out? August 15,

4 Called by His Name Deuteronomy 28: Yahweh shall establish you as a holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto you, IF thou shalt keep the commandments of Yahweh thy Elohim, and walk in His ways. 10 THEN all nations of the earth shall see that thou art August 15,

5 Called by His Name Deuteronomy 28: Yahweh shall establish you as a holy people unto Himself, as He hath sworn unto you, IF thou shalt keep the commandments of Yahweh thy Elohim, and walk in His ways. 10 Then all nations of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of Yahweh Does this imply more than just moral laws? August 15,

6 Prophet Statements Once the Tabernacle of David is rebuilt, all the Gentiles upon whom My name is called, may earnestly seek Me They will take hold of My covenant Which covenant? -> Attribute examination People from all nations will stream to Yahweh s Temple August 15,

7 Prophet Statements I will bring them to My holy mountain, and give them joy in My Temple Their burnt offerings are accepted on My altar Their sacrifices are accepted on My altar Ezekiel 44:9 Thus saith Yahweh Elohim; No foreigners, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my Temple, not even the foreigners who live among the Israelites. August 15,

8 Prophet Statements They keep the Sabbath and don t desecrate it They say of their own free will: Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, and to the Temple of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His way We will walk in them (His ways): Why For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, and the word of Yahweh out of Jerusalem. August 15,

9 Prophet Summary They go up to the Temple To offer burnt offerings and sacrifices which requires ritual cleanliness To enter the Temple, they also must be circumcised in the flesh (males) and the heart They keep the Sabbath and don t desecrate it Of their own free will, they desire to be taught from the Torah and to walk in it August 15,

10 Prophet Summary What covenant explains these things? Sinai? Implications Are there other possible witnesses to learning Torah and obeying it by walking out what it says? August 15,

11 Other Witnesses Luke 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord s Christ. August 15,

12 Luke 2 Luke 2:27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Yeshua, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and blessed God, saying: 29 Now, according to your word, Sovereign Lord, permit your servant to depart in peace. August 15,

13 Luke 2 Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: 32 a light, for revelation to the Gentiles Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Isaiah 2:3; Micah 4:2 -> Thy word is the August 15,

14 Luke 2 Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: 32 a light, for revelation to the Gentiles Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Isaiah 2:3; Micah 4:2 -> Thy word is the Torah August 15,

15 From of old Genesis 12:1-3 [3] And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Literal Hebrew: Whoever treats Abram and the covenant with contempt as worthless, God will banish from the blessing. August 15,

16 From of old Genesis 17:1-14 [10] 2 I will make my covenant between me and thee 7 And I will establish my covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an olam covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 10 This is My covenant, Every man child among you shall be circumcised. -> Same for Gentiles: Ezekiel 44:9 August 15,

17 Genesis 18:17-19 From of old 17 And Yahweh said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; 18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? August 15,

18 From of old Genesis 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of Yahweh Genesis 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed My voice. Abraham and Luke 2 (Yeshua at birth) August 15,

21 Symposium Stavanger, Norway: April 28-29, 1998 School of Mission and Theology Symposium on the Mission of the Early Church to Jews and Gentiles Matthew 28:16-20 and the Course of Mission in the Apostolic and Postapostolic Age Peter Stuhlmacher, Professor Emeritus of the University of Tübingen, Germany. August 15,

22 Two Witnesses Matthew 28 The Great Commission Jeremiah 12:15-17 (12:15 referenced in James speech in Acts 15) August 15,

23 Matthew 28 The end of the Gospel of Matthew is of eminent importance for the understanding of the Gospel as a whole and the mission of the Early Church. p2 It may be defined in line with the OT narratives of the callings of Moses, Gideon, and Jeremiah. August 15,

24 Matthew 28 Matthew 28:18 Then Yeshua came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, discipling all nations 20 Teaching them to obey [guard] everything I have commanded you August 15,

25 Matthew 28 everything I have commanded you John 7:16 Yeshua said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent me. John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment (Torah), what I should say, and what I should speak. August 15,

26 Matthew 28 everything I have commanded you John 14:24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. Summary: Everything that he said comes from the Father And the nations are to obey it. August 15,

27 Matthew 28 Two possible positions: Matthew is an anti-semitic or From 28:20 it can even be said : The Gospel of Matthew wishes to make the Jewish Torah as interpreted by [Yeshua] binding in the form of his commandments for all peoples, Jews and Gentiles. p18 August 15,

28 Matthew 28 Psalm 82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for Thou shalt inherit all nations. p29 When James, the lord s brother, refers to the Holy Scriptures and speaks of the rebuilding of the fallen dwelling of David (Jeremiah 12:15), he had in view the blossoming evkklhsi,a in Jerusalem as the core and vanguard of the eschatological people of God. p40 August 15,

29 Matthew 28 That means, [1 Thessalonians 2:14a] For ye, brethren, became followers of the Ekklesia(s) of God which in Judaea are in Messiah Yeshua From the phrase pa,nta ta. e;qnh( common to Matthew 28:19, Luke 24:47, and Acts 15:7, one can conclude that Acts has the same perspectives in view as the end of the Gospel of Matthew.. p40 August 15,

30 Jeremiah 12 Jeremiah 12:14 I, Yahweh, also have something to say concerning the wicked nations who surround My land and have attacked and plundered the land that I gave to My people as a permanent possession. I say: I will uproot the people of those nations from their lands and I will free the people of Judah who have been taken there. August 15,

31 Jeremiah 12 Jeremiah 12:15 But after I have uprooted the people of those nations, I will relent and have pity on them. I will restore the people of each of those nations to their own lands and to their own country. August 15,

32 Jeremiah 12 Jeremiah 12:16 But they (the nations) must make sure to learn to follow the ways of My people. Once they taught my people to swear their oaths using the name of the god Baal. But now, they must swear oaths using My name, saying, As Yahweh lives, I swear. IF they do these things, THEN they will be built up in the midst of My people. August 15,

33 Summary The Gentiles will take hold of a covenant that requires male circumcision to enter Yahweh s Temple They will offer burnt offerings and other sacrifices, which requires ritual purity They will be observing the Sabbath August 15,

34 Summary They are to be discipled by the Ekklesia in Jerusalem which Yeshua defined as Teaching them to obey [guard] everything I have commanded you This includes Yeshua as a light to the nations (Psalm 119:105) (birth blessing) These things were known from the time of Genesis and Abraham August 15,

35 Summary When these nations are called, they must make sure to learn to follow the ways of My people. IF they do these things, THEN they will be built up in the midst of My people. They say of their own free will: Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, and to the Temple of the God of Jacob, to hear the Torah and learn to walk in it.. August 15,

36 What s on Tap Defining Called by His name Does this definition imply more than just moral laws? Is that possible for Gentiles joining Israel? Are the prophetic statements clear? Other witnesses Colossians 2:16-17: IAMCS & FFOZ How did it turn out? August 15,

41 August 15,

42 Philip Carrington has studied the Christian time-keeping scheme in detail. He provides evidence that a Liturgical Year of the Hebrew type was established in early Christian communities. August 15,

43 Carrington then reconstructs the Christian Liturgical Year beginning with the seventh new moon from Passover and includes the temporal segments of Sabbaths, months, demarcated by new moons, and festivals that determine seasons of the year. August 15,

44 In English Please... The Book August 15,

45 A Study in the making of the Marcan Gospel August 15,

46 August 15,

47 Whatever the Lord has commanded us to perform, we ought to do in accordance with the appointed seasons. He commanded the offerings and services to be performed conscientiously and not at random or without order, but at appointed seasons and hours. August 15,

48 Since Clement goes on to refer to the high priests, the priests, and the Levites, it is clear that the appointed seasons which he regards as essential must be those of the Levitical Law. August 15,

49 If words have any meaning at all, a Liturgical Year of the Hebrew type must have been well established in Rome and Corinth by the 90's. Page 41 August 15,

50 August 15,

51 a Christianized form of the Hebrew Calendar was even then in existence There is no reason to think that there ever was a form of Christianity anywhere which dispensed with this Calendar. Page 43 August 15,

52 Primitive Christian Calendar The early believers followed a calendar keyed to the Feasts of Yahweh. Mark and Codex Vaticanus (B) August 15,

53 Colossians 2:16-17 Original point of IAMCS & FFOZ? August 15,

54 IAMCS To wit, that man is to be reconciled unto God not by faith in God, but by keeping the Law of Moses. Accordingly, no person can hope to be in a healthy relationship with God unless he or she is keeping the weekly Sabbath, the appointed feasts, and the dietary laws. The scriptures testify otherwise. (Col. 2:16) August 15,

55 FFOZ Aside from circumcision, though, the apostles provide no list of commandments from which Gentile believers are exempt. Perhaps Paul comes close to doing so in Colossians 2:16 where he lists the Sabbath, the festivals, the new moons, and the dietary laws August 15,

56 FFOZ Aside from circumcision, though, the apostles provide no list of commandments from which Gentile believers are exempt. Perhaps Paul comes close to doing so in Colossians 2:16 where he lists the Sabbath, the festivals, the new moons, and the dietary laws as matters for which the Gentile believers of Colossae should not be judged. August 15,

57 FFOZ He only says that Gentile believers are not to be judged regarding those matters--a statement he could not have made regarding Jewish believers. August 15,

58 Colossians 2:16-17 Original point of IAMCS & FFOZ? Journal of Biblical Literature, 114/2 (1995) But Let Everyone Discern The Body of Christ (Colossians 2:17) Who is doing the judging? August 15,

59 Colossians 2: Corinthians 10:24 has the same Greek structure as Colossians 2:16-17 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other s well being. In order to understand this passage correctly, one has to repeat in the second phrase the opposite of the beginning of the first phrase. August 15,

60 foreshadow things to come Colossians 2:16-17 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other s well being. Let no one seek his own, but let each one seek the other s well being. Therefore, let no one judge your eating and drinking as regards a festival, new moon, or Sabbath except the body of Christ. Which August 15,

61 foreshadow things to come Colossians 2:16-17 So let no one judge you but let the body of Christ judge you. Therefore, let no one judge your eating and drinking as regards a festival, new moon, or Sabbath except the body of Christ. Which Concerning IAMCS & FFOZ They have it completely wrong. August 15,
