And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' Mark 7:7 EMTV
(18) And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. (19) Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (20) teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.Matthew 28:18-20 EMTV
WHERE CAN WE FIND OUT ALL ABOUT JESUS?
You search the Scriptures, for you think in them you have everlasting life.
And they are the ones witnessing concerning Me. John 5:39 LITV. Luke 24:44

For out of Zion TORAH will go forth
Many peoples will come and say: Come, and let us ascend to theMount of Yahweh, To thehouse of theElohim of Jacob; And He shall direct us out ofHis ways, So+that we may indeedwalk in His paths. For from Zion shall goforth thelaw, And theword of Yahweh from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3 CLV
ONE LAW FOR BOTH JEWS AND PAGANS
Isaiah 56:1-8 YLT
“(1) Thus said Jehovah: `Keep ye judgement, and do righteousness, For near is My salvation to come, And My righteousness to be revealed.' (2) O the happiness of a man who doth this, And of a son of man who keepeth hold on it, Keeping the sabbath from polluting it, And keeping his hand from doing any evil. (3) Nor speak let a son of the stranger, Who is joined unto Jehovah, saying: `Jehovah doth certainly separate me from His people.' Nor say let the eunuch, `Lo, I am a tree dried up,' (4) For thus said Jehovah of the eunuchs, Who do keep My sabbaths, And have fixed on that which I desired, And are keeping hold on My covenant: (5) I have given to them in My house, And within My walls a station and a name, Better than sons and than daughters, A name age-during I give to him That is not cut off. (6) And sons of the stranger, who are joined to Jehovah, To serve Him, and to love the name of Jehovah, To be to Him for servants, Every keeper of the sabbath from polluting it, And those keeping hold on My covenant. (7) I have brought them unto My holy mountain, And caused them to rejoice in My house of prayer, Their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices Are for a pleasing thing on Mine altar, For My house, `A house of prayer,' Is called for all the peoples. (8) An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, Who is gathering the outcasts of Israel: `Again I gather to him--to his gathered ones.'
Matthew 5:17-18 RV
(17) Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill. (18) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.
