Everything Whatsoever I Have Commanded

Everything Whatsoever I Have Commanded

Matthew 23:1-3 — Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

His disciples
This was an instruction and command not only to the multitudes but also to Jesus’ disciples.
The Scribes and the Pharisees sat in the place of Moses, and commanded the observance of the Law of Moses, which is the Torah Law.
All … whatsoever
Every little thing that is commanded of the Torah Law.
It is because they sit in the seat of Moses and administer God’s Law.
that observe and do
Keep and do the Torah Law as commanded in every particular.

So here we have a clear command from Yeshua (Jesus) to His disciples to observe the Torah Law (Moses) in every detail. It is not a friendly suggestion, but a command. Compare Matthew 28:20.

Matthew 28:20 — Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
