    Read John 13 and 14.... it's all there.

    Jesus was with the twelve and one left. So he was talking to the remaining 11 apostles.

    Jesus fulfilled the law, it's purpose is complete. If you look at the sermon on the mount, no one is holy enough to obey the law completely. That is the message of the gospel, that Jesus died in our place, to satisfy the law. His righteousness is given to us. It is through faith, not the law that we are saved.
    Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

    I know that God wants me to obey His Commandments. This is observance of the Law. God does not want anyone to sin. God does not want anyone to transgress the law. Sin is transgression of the law.

    Jesus came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets. He did not come to abolish them.

    Salvation is by faith, not the Law.

    Shalom.

    I am glad that we agree. If you choose to obey the ceremonial law out of love for Jesus, as the OP says, that is a beautifal act of worship. Just consider that Jesus fulfilled the purpose of the law of Moses. It was meant to point to Him, and show how much we need Him to save us. Now the law is written on our hearts, with the Holy Spirit.

    This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.

    I am very happy to hear you say we are saved by grace.

    We are saved by grace through faith.

    No, I do not know what your ceremonial law is nor why you say it can be observed out of love for Jesus.

    Jesus taught us to observe and keep, to keep and teach, the Commandments. I just do not have a ceremonial law designation.

    We can learn what it meant to them and what it means for us. Do you accept what Jesus taught there? Do you accept it for you? Do you apply it to your life or have you applied it to your life?

    Shalom.

    Well the law of Moses is divided into three sections by theologians: the moral law, ceremonial law, and civil law. The moral laws are generally repeated in the New Testament, things like don't murder steal or lie. The ceremonial law was meant to keep Israel clean while God was in the Tabernacle and Temple, things like dietary laws and feasts and sacrifices. The civil law was meant for Israel as a society, things like boundary stones, sanctuary cities, and specific puniahments for the courts to enforce. It's not a sure thing, just a way of describing the general categories. since Peter was told he could eat unclean animals in Acts 10, gentile Christians have not usually followed the ceremonial law. That's what I am talking about. The Holy Spirit will convict you of the laws you need to follow.

    What do you mean by laws?

    I disagree with you in your presentation. What Theologians say may not have bearing upon my life as a Jew.

    Jesus instructed us to keep and teach the Commandments. It is my belief that no one is excluded from this, but to accept all of the commandments, well, I do not see any obstacle to that and this is what I have done and become a Jew.

    Shalom.

    Turning the other cheek is not good self-defense, and punishment given to Judah for disobeying God. Should we emulate it?

    I think can read his commandments, but consider one another, as I have considered ye (i.e. a first century israelite audience) does not apply to us. He is not considering us. But we consider others as Jesus did.
