The Actor

Yeshua acting out the Torah as an Actor on the Stage of Eternity

An excerpt from Iyar 13, 5772

Understanding the Mesorah of the Master means that Yeshua was the personification of the Torah MiSinai and the Torah Shebe’al Peh or the Oral Torah i.e. Mesorah. Therefore, by investigating the life and actions of the Master, we are able to better elucidate the Torah MiSinai and the Torah Shebe’al Peh. The Nazarean Codicil is the toolbox for “investigating” Messiah. As a personification of the Torah, we see the Master enacting the Torah and the Oral Torah as a means of elucidation. The late Vendyl Jones, may his memory be blessed, suggested that we view the life of Yeshua as an actor on stage acting out the Torah.[1] This fits the words of Yochanan (John) who tells us the “Word was with G-d in the beginning.”[2] While these words are sublime in nature, Yochanan is telling us that we are to look at the life of Yeshua as a personification of the Torah, and by extension anyone who claims to be a Rabbi or Hakham.
