Antimissionaries be like… Jesus Teachings Contradict Torah – Part 1


The Torah is the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, and it is the foundation of Judaism. Yeshua was a Jewish rabbi, and he taught his followers that he had come to fulfill the Torah, not to abolish it. Here are some ways in which Yeshua’s teachings are consistent with the Torah:

  • Yeshua taught to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Deuteronomy 6:5).
  • Yeshua taught to love our neighbors as themselves (Leviticus 19:18).
  • Yeshua taught to pray for our enemies (Matthew 5:44).
  • Yeshua taught to forgive others (Matthew 6:12).
  • Yeshua taught to give to the poor (Luke 11:41).
  • Yeshua taught to be merciful (Matthew 5:7).
  • Yeshua taught to be pure in heart (Matthew 5:8).
  • Yeshua taught to be peacemakers (Matthew 5:9).

These are just a few examples of how Yeshua’s teachings are consistent with the Torah. Yeshua taught his followers to live a life of love, obedience, and service to God and others. This is the same life that the Torah calls us to live. In addition to the specific teachings that Yeshua gave, his overall message was also consistent with the Torah. He taught that God is love and that we are called to love one another. He taught that we should live a life of peace and justice. And he taught that we should forgive those who have wronged us. All of these teachings are consistent with the Torah, which is the foundation of Judaism. Yeshua came to fulfill the Torah, not to abolish it. And his teachings are a beautiful example of how to live a life that is pleasing to God.

It is important to also note that Yeshua did not always agree with the way that the Torah was being interpreted and applied by the Jewish religious leaders of his time. (i.e. The Sabbath observance) He often criticized them for their hypocrisy and their lack of love and compassion. However, Yeshua never rejected the Torah itself. He affirmed it as the word of God and the foundation of Jewish law.

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
