Yes, the New Testament does promote Torah!

The NT doesn’t promote Torah? Sure it does. We just have to read Scripture in context. Here’s just one example:

Acts15:21 For from the earliest times, Moshe has had in every city those who proclaim him, with his words being read in the synagogues every Shabbat." (CJB)

A fulfillment of Isaiah 56:1-9, where we see Gentile converts observing Shabbat and learning Torah as one body along with Jews. Unfortunately, not long afterward, Marcion (whom Polycarp referred to as “the firstborn of the devil”) built the first all-Gentile church to promote the insertion of pagan ideas. (Of course, no one noticed because it all “sounded good”; and people do what they've always done: They blindly followed; and, consequently, a new "religion" was born - one that totally detracted from Torah, YHWH's Divine Instructions in Righteousness, without which we would have no blueprint for moral, holy living.)

Marcion held his services on Sunday which blended with Zeus (the sun god) culture – which, of course was in total opposition to the teachings of our Jewish Messiah. (These modern theologies were based more on Hellenism than on original fundamental Hebraic values.)

Marcion coined the words “Old - New Testament” and did his level best to warn Gentiles away from Torah and “the God of the Old Testament.” He also invented theologies known as replacement, dispensational, supercessionism, etc., which are very popular among Christianity today. (Source: AENT)

  1. There are many Christians who "run for the hills" or get perplexed when a believer mentions Torah. Many Christians focus on "Jesus did it all" or "Jesus abolished the Torah" while paying little or no attention to the rest of Scripture.

  2. One thing that I find interesting is that the Torah tells us tattoos are an abomination (Leviticus 19:28). I was telling someone not too long ago about tattoos and their health risks. The person asks what health risks are associated with tattoos and I told the person skin disease. The person claimed I ruined their interest in getting a tattoo.
