Messiah here was talking to the crowd of followers and His disciples (was Paul a Jew so was he even a disciple the man changed things?) He told them to remain Jews.
Matty 23:1-3 Then Messiah spoke with the crowds and with His disciples 2″The Scribes and the Pharisees have sat on the throne of Moses. 3 Everything therefore that they will tell you to observe, observe and do but you should not do according to their works, for they are saying and they are not doing. (they don’t practice what they preach)
So how would a Jewish follower hearing and knowing this instruction from Messiah respond? What was the purpose?
Matty 22:37-40 Messiah said to him “You shall love THE LORD JEHOVAH your God from all your heart and from all your soul and from all your power and from all your mind.38 this is the great and the first commandment.39 The second which is like it is you shall love your neighbor as yourself.40 On these two commands depend all The Written Law and The Prophets.”
The Synagogue a house of prayer and Torah portions I have not looked through them all but most likely words of God.
Would it be possible that you then would be witness for the Messiah? Interesting things to think about. Therefore if questioned could share? Could mental prayer of agreement within Assembly apply to healing, binding satan? Why not see.
Matty 18:18-20 “And truly I say to you, everything whatsoever you will bind in the earth will have been bound in Heaven, and anything that you will release in the earth will have been released in Heaven. 19 Again I say to you, that if two of you will agree in the earth about any matter, which they will request, it will be done for them from the presence of my Father who is in Heaven. 20 For where two or three are assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
