THE CASE FOR "THE LAW" WHY AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE?

The reason that I use the word in this instance "law" is because most people are familiar with it. When as a matter of fact, the word "law" was translated from the Latin word "legis" meaning something legalistic. But the original word in the Hebrew Bible is "Torah" which means "teaching and instruction" (from Adonai). In the beginning, the "Torah" was considered to be the 5 books of Moses, but after that, more "seferim" were written down and added.

We, as messianic believers, see the Bible broken down into, the "Torah" (5 sefarim of Moses) "Neveyim" (the Prophets) "Ketuvim" (the writings, Hebrew poetry, etc) and the "Brit HaDasha" (new Covenant)

BUT....all 66 books can be considered "Torah" as ALL are G-d breathed, and inspired by the Ruach HaKodesh, and are fit for instruction, correction, reproof, in all manners to direct a person in all righteousness (2 Tim 3:16)

Many ask "why did HaShem give the 613 mitzvoth (commandments) when knowing perfectly well that fallen man could not or even fulfill them?"

1. G-d gave HIS mitzvoth to show HIS perfection and righteousness to man
2. G-d gave HIS mitzvoth to show man his lost state of imperfection, and that try as he might,
he would never be able to fulfill them completely. So if we fail in only one, we are guilty of
breaking them all.
3. Yeshua came to fulfill the mitzvoth which we could not nor ever fulfill. He did this in our place,
lived a perfect life and died a sinner's death.
4. G-d developed a sacrificial system involving clean animals to illustrate what Messiah Yeshua
would do in the future. In sacrificing these animals, the offerers showed their faith based on
their obedience in bringing the animals to be sacrificed.

But scripture says that the blood of the bulls and other animals never had the power to erase of forgive sin, only COVER (from where we get "kippur") only "HaDam Yeshua" has the "cleansing and forgiving power" that the blood of animals never had.

No wonder Rav Shaul said we have a "better covenant" one that does not involve animal sacrifices, only our trust and faith in the finished work
