Rav Sha’ul Commentary:
In Galatians 3:17, Sha’ul talks about the written Law coming into existence 430 years after the oral Law. The Promise made to Abraham is not separate from The Law as Yahuah gave The Law to Abraham orally. Abraham was counted as Righteous for being Obedient to Yahuah Commandments in Faith. In this section, Sha’ul confronts the lie that Eternal Life is based solely on either the Promise or The Law. Righteousness before Yahuah is a function of keeping The Law and putting your Faith in His Promises found IN That Law! If you abolish The Law, you abolish the Promise of Salvation through the Passover Lamb with it.
Below is from the first book in this series, The Law & The Pauline Doctrine. In that first book, I explain the concept of transposition of The Law to help us understand what Sha’ul believed and understood.
In Chapter 1 - Keys to studying the Kingdom of Yahuah I defined the concept of transposition as follows:
One of the terms I use most in this book is Transposition. I use this term because it is the word chosen by the Apostle Sha’ul to describe the “change” that occurred in both the physical Law and physical Priesthoods. Sha’ul used the Greek word “metathesis” in Hebrews 7:12 when explaining how The Law and the Priesthood of Levi defined by the Mosaic Covenant “changed” in the Yahushaic Covenant. Metathesis is Strong’s 3331 and means "transferred to Heaven"... transposition.
Today, the word transposition is used in music and the musical application beautifully and very accurately illustrates the concept as it applies to physical to Spiritual transposition. “Transposition” in music is the shifting of a melody, a harmonic progression or an entire musical piece to another key, while maintaining the same tone structure.
This is exactly what happened with The Law and the Priesthood from the Mosaic Covenant to the Yahushaic Covenant and in fact all of Yahuah’s Commandments and Ordinances in the Mosaic Covenant. They were first given orally, then transposed to “written in stone”, and ultimately transposed to “written in our hearts” while maintaining their validity, meaning, and structure. They went through a transfer of position (transposition) from oral to written to Spirit.
Nothing established by Yahuah has ever been “abolished” other than the Decrees found within The Law for violating His Commands. Even those Decrees were not “abolished” they were covered by the blood of the Passover Lamb for those who believe, and condemn those who do not put their Faith in Passover. So actually, nothing Yahuah has ever done has been “abolished” by anyone or anything. No one has that authority.
Keep in mind that “transposition” is the transfer of position from one state to another without changing the structure, validity, meaning, or content. The Law of Yahuah, like the Kingdom of Yahuah, has always existed. Yahuah’s Righteousness is the same yesterday (Eternal past), today, and forever. Yahuah didn’t just make up the Law as mankind labored along in this age to “point out his sin” as Christianity would have us believe. No, like all other aspects of the Kingdom of Yahuah, The Law is a Spiritual Truth and was progressively revealed to man physically over time through covenants. We covered covenants too, as an essential “key” to understanding the Kingdom of Yahuah in Chapter 1 of this book. That doesn’t mean The Law came into existence over time; it just means that man didn’t know what The Law was and had to be slowly introduced to it.
The Law has existed in 4 states over the period of progressive disclosure through covenants:
1. The Mind of Yahuah – Transposition #1…
2. Oral Tradition – Transposition #2…
3. Written in Stone– Transposition #3…
4. Written on our Hearts
In the process of progressively revealing The Law of Yahuah to man, The Law went through 3 distinct transpositions as it passed from one state to the next:
1. The first transposition was from the mind of Yahuah to mankind orally in small doses. Man, then passed The Law down from generation to generation verbally.
2. The second transposition of The Law was from oral tradition to “written in stone” in detail defined as the physical act.
3. The third transposition was from written in stone (physical acts) to written on our hearts (Spiritual Intent).
With each transposition of The Law, it simply transferred states and remained fully intact in meaning, validity, structure, etc.
Let’s take a closer look at proof that The Law existed prior to Adam and witness the transposition of that Law from the mind of Yahuah to man orally… then to man in written form… then ultimately to the hearts of His sons.
in the Mind of Yahuah
The Apostle Sha’ul clearly teaches that even though at the time Adam lived, Yahuah (through progressive revelation over time) had not yet fully communicated His Holy Law to man. The entire Holy Law was still active at the creation of man, and the penalty for disobedience which is DEATH was imputed to every man who violated any part of it. the fact that death existed from Adam to Moses, Sha’ul says below, is PROOF that The Law existed in its entirety at the time of Adam.
Sha’ul says below that, the fact that many died for various offenses not related to what Adam did (don’t eat the apple), was proof that The Holy Law of Yahuah was a complex set of Laws and Eternally valid and active. Mankind (at the time of Adam) simply was not completely aware of what The Law contained. But Yahuah's Holiness was the same at the time of Adam as it was at the time of Abraham, Moses, David, Yahusha, and you and I today. And that Holiness is defined by His Holy Law.
The Apostle Sha’ul addresses the reality of The Law from Adam to Moses below:
What does all that mean? Let me break it down to clearly demonstrate what Sha’ul is talking about below:
13 To be sure, sin (breaking The Law) was in the world before The (written) Law was given (to Moses), but sin (breaking The Law) is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no Law. (so the fact that sin was in the world before the written Law is proof The Law existed all the way back to Adam)
NOTE: Keep all of Sha’ul’s writings in context; Sha’ul is proving that because there was transgression since Adam that The Law was alive and active. Because if The Law did not exist, neither would transgressions and death could not reign:
Continuing with Romans 5… (so Sha’ul is saying there must have been The Law at the time of Adam because there was transgression…) 14 Nevertheless (now Sha’ul says death is the proof of The Law), death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, (and DEATH is the penalty of “sin” or breaking The Law. So transgression and death is PROOF The Law existed from Adam to Moses) even over those who did not sin by breaking a Command, as did Adam (The Law was a lot more complex than anyone knew because people were dying for all types of sin not just “eating the apple”)
So, we see that The Law existed in the mind of Yahuah all the way back to Adam, they just weren’t aware of what all The Law required. Mankind was still held to account for The Law from Adam to Moses as made evident by death. Death being the penalty of transgressing The Law reigned from Adam to Moses and therefore is proof The Law of Yahuah is Eternal both past and future.
Man was in the initial stages of progressive disclosure. But rest assured, The Law still governed Yahuah’s Creation and death was still the penalty for violating it and sin was still being charged against EVERYONE who transgressed any part of His Holy Law. That is what Sha’ul is saying.
I needed to bring this to our attention because the False Religion of Christianity teaches us that “Sha’ul” said The Law came into existence 430 years after the Abrahamic Covenant.
Galatians 3 – The written Law introduced
Well, “if” Sha’ul actually said what Christianity teaches he said; he wasn’t much of a Pharisee and expert in the Torah; because not only did Sha’ul say The Law existed at creation, but Sha’ul knew Abraham was given The Law orally in detail!
Gen 26:5 – Abrahamic Covenant
5 Because that Abraham Obeyed My Voice, and kept My Charge, My Commandments, My Statutes, and My Laws.
Don’t worry, I will cover Galatians and explain it all along with every other false teaching of the Christian Church concerning The Law. We are going to address all of it in my upcoming book, The Law of Yahuah. Sha’ul seems to contradict himself and contradict every other Prophet and Yahusha concerning The Law (if you believe the Pauline Doctrine of the Christian Church that is).
In order to understand Sha’ul’s writing we must know what Sha’ul knew… the Torah and Prophets! We must understand the Yahushaic Covenant as it pertains to Faith vs. Righteousness. We will put Sha’ul into context (something Christianity fails to do) of all his writings and the Torah and the Prophets and see exactly what Sha’ul actually said, believed, and lived in my book, ‘The Law of Yahuah’. To stay on point in this chapter, I am establishing The Law as the governing constitution of the Kingdom of Yahuah.
Transposition of The Law is what Sha’ul taught in all his writings. In teaching the transposition of The Law Sha’ul can be brought into agreement with Yahuah, Yahusha, the Prophets, and all the other commentators in the New Testament concerning The Law. Sha’ul was first and foremost… a Pharisee and lived a life of strict Obedience to The Law:
Acts 24:14 – Sha’ul
declaring his belief in The Law and Prophets
Philippians 3: 4-6:
Sha’ul was a Pharisee, a Jewish Rabbi blameless in keeping The Law until he died
If the way Christianity teaches Sha’ul’s writings is true, then the Apostle Sha’ul is not only a colossal hypocrite but he is a false teacher for directly contradicting Yahuah’s Prophets and the Messiah. Yahusha was a Torah Observant Jewish Rabbi who “didn’t come to abolish The Law and the Prophets”.
Christianity has been bearing false witness against the Apostle Sha’ul for 2,000 years. It is time we honor the Apostle Sha’ul and treat his writings with respect in light of his lifelong commitment to The Law. But like I said, Sha’ul properly taught the transposition of the Law and taught that The Law was active all the way back to Adam.
from the Mind of Yahuah to oral tradition
Now we know The Law was alive and active all the way back to Adam. We clearly see below; The Law was communicated verbally to our forefathers and defined the “terms and conditions” of every covenant long before the covenant with Moses. Each covenant between Yahuah and his sons are literally Marriage Covenants and The Law defines the Marriage Vows.
Note: It is through keeping these vows that we become one with Yahuah (the two shall become one through marriage covenant). The human marriage covenant is a physical to Spiritual parallel of the covenants between Yahuah and His sons. In the Yahushaic Covenant, Yahusha is the Bridegroom and the rest of Yahuah’s sons are the Bride. The covenant was consummated with blood; the 144,000 chosen from among the 12 tribes of Israel called Remnant Israel are “virgins” and so forth.
In the Abrahamic Covenant The Law of Yahuah was transposed from the Mind of Yahuah to our forefathers verbally as we read below, “Abraham Obeyed My Voice” and kept The Law of Yahuah:
Gen 26:5 – KJV – Abrahamic Covenant
So obviously in Galatians, Sha’ul was talking about “The Written Law” came 430 years after the Promise to Abraham.
Galatians 3 – Law transposed to stone 430 years earlier
We see below, that The Law of Yahuah was passed down orally to Jacob through his father Isaac… who received The Law from Abraham... who received it from Yahuah’s Voice:
Ps 147:19-148:1 – KJV
– The Law passed down orally to all our forefathers
The Law was transposed from oral to written in the Mosaic Covenant
In the Mosaic Covenant, The Law was transposed from oral tradition to written in stone. Let me clearly establish that the Commandments of Yahuah are Eternal to Israel (His chosen sons) - the bloodline of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob. They are for "all time" Eternal past and future, they are an Everlasting Covenant, forever.
Isaiah declares that it is the disobedience to The Laws of Yahuah, the violation of these Statutes, and the breaking of the EVERLASTING Covenant (which is the Sabbath Covenant), that the Earth is defiled and falls under a curse and is utterly destroyed at the end.
Isaiah 24 - Yahuah’s Devastation of the
3 The Earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. Yahuah has spoken this Word. 4 The Earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the Earth. 5 The Earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed The Laws, violated the Statutes and broken the Everlasting Covenant (the Sabbath). 6 Therefore (because we have abolished His Law and changed His Sabbath to Sunday) a curse consumes the Earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore Earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
I don’t know about you, but as for me and my house… we will study His Law and keep His Sabbath. I for one want to enter His Kingdom and be one of the “very few left” after Yahuah purges the Earth of those who deny His Law. I don’t want to be told “depart from me you Law breaker” by Yahusha and I don’t want to be rounded up and kicked out of the Kingdom for disobedience!
When you understand that The Law is the governing constitution of the Kingdom of Yahuah and literally the marriage vows of His Covenants, you realize only those who have it “written on their hearts” will be qualified to govern. If you truly Love Yahuah, that Love is demonstrated by keeping His Law:
1 John 5:3
Only those with a “heart for His Law” and Lovingly keep the Marriage Vows will be found trustworthy of Eternal Life. Yahuah can’t have a bunch of Lawless Unfaithful Eternal beings running around trying to govern the Universe in unrighteousness, now can He? Those who abolish The Law (Law breakers) will not make it past the “gatekeeper” Yahusha. They will be told “depart from me, I know you not, you who practice disobedience to The Law”.
The Law was transposed from written to Spiritual Intent in the Yahushaic Covenant
Once The Law was gradually introduced to man over time orally from Adam through Abraham until Moses, then written in stone in detail, it was transposed to Spiritual intent in the Yahushaic Covenant. Sha’ul was well aware of this fact:
Hebrews 10:16 – The Law is the foundation of New Covenant
This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says Yahuah. I will put My Laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.
Yahusha’s primary mission was to fulfill (transpose) The Law of Yahuah, especially as it related to the Spring Feasts of Passover/Unleavened Bread/First Fruits/Shavuot.
Matthew 5 - The Fulfillment of The Law
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish The Law (Torah) or the Prophets (The Torah and Prophets are what we in error call, ‘the Old Testament’. So, Yahusha said Yahuah’s Word wasn’t abolished and is not “old” after all); I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them (bring them to their fullest meaning and Spiritual application through transposition). 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and Earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen (all 613 Laws remain), will by any means disappear from The Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these Commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven (that is if such a person even enters the Kingdom), but whoever practices and teaches these Commands (The Law) will be called great in the Kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your Righteousness (defined as Obedience to The Law) surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of The Law, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of heaven. (by this he meant The Law would be strengthened to attitude not the act. By applying The Law to Spiritual Intent, we can surpass the outward Righteousness of the Pharisees)
Ezekiel prophesied the same transposition of The Law in the New Covenant:
Ezekiel 36: 26, 27
24 So in this (that the Law reveals our sin and creates a need for a Mediator), the Law is our teacher, leading us into Covenant with the Messiah (Luke 24: 25, Romans 2: 13) so that we might be justified through the Faith (which is demonstrated through works of The Law, James 2:14-26).
25 But now that the Faith has come, are we no longer under the training of that teacher?
26 For you all are sons of Yahuah (Romans 8: 14 -- Spirits of sons. Romans 8: 19 -- Manifestations. II Corinthians 6: 18 -- My Sons. Galatians 4: 5 -- Adoptions. Ephesians 3: 5 -- Not made known to sons of men. Philippians 2: 15 -- Sons of Yahuah. Hebrews 2: 10 -- Many sons to Glory. Hebrews 12: 7 -- As with son. I John 3: 1-2 – gods, sons of the Most High Psalms 82:6. Then are you sons. Galatians 3: 29) through the Faith (which establishes The Law, works are proof of that Faith) in (Covenant with) Yahusha Messiah (John 17:19-21).
27 For as many of you as have been Mikveh’d into The Yahushaic Covenant, like the Messiah you must become (conformed to his Righteous example, Romans 9:29 and 1 John 2:6).
28 Is there not the Yahdai as well as the Greek; Gentile? Is there not the slave as well as the freeman? Is there not the male and the female? For all of you must be in unity (one with Yahuah) in Covenant with Yahusha the Messiah (John 17:19-21)..
19“For their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. 20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who enter into Covenant with me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in (Covenant with) me and I in (Covenant with) You, that they also may be in (covenant with) Us, so that the world may believe that You sent me. 22 “The Glory which You have given me I have given to them, that they may be one family, just as We are one family; 23 I in (covenant with) them and You in (covenant with) me, that they may be perfected in unity in the family of Elohim
29 And if you are (one with Yahuah) as the Messiah (is one in covenant, John 17:19-21. Hebrew lamed, meaning as. A Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament by Brown, Driver, and Briggs, Page 512. q. After Melchizedek. Hebrews 6: 20, Hebrews 7: 1-3. Remember Genesis 18: 18. Teach them Yahuah's Way. Matthew 7: 21, do the will of Yahuah) then you are a seed of Abraham, heirs according to the Promise.) Then you are heirs to the Promise of Abraham’s seed (co-heirs with Yahusha Romans 8:17).
