The Laws of Yeshua Ha Mashiach
Yeshua said in many places in the Gopels: If you love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me. And he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. John 14:21
If a man love me, he will keep my words, and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:23
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings. John 14:24
You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. John 15:14.

2Co 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of the Messiah ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living Elohim; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the hear
