Christ Is The End Of The Law! Really?

On December 6, 2012, in Bible Lessons, by Milton Carnes

2 Peter 3:15-16
15 and consider that the longsuffering of our savior—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

Romans 10:4
For Christ (The Messiah) is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Does this mean that I do not have to keep the laws of the Old Testament?

What is the law?
1. The first five books of the Bible. The law is contained in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy but mainly the latter four books.
2. The Directions and Instructions (our teacher Galatians 3:24)
3. The Commandments, Statutes, Ordinances, and Judgments
4. Love; Loving Yah and loving your neighbor (Deuteronomy 6:4 & Leviticus 19:17-18)
5. The Law is life and death; blessings and cursings (Deuteronomy 30)

6. The Law is truth. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your law is the truth. (Psalm 119:142)

7. The Law is spiritual. For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. (Romans 7:14)

First we must understand what has been said about the law.

1 John 3:4
Sin is transgression or breaking of the law

Matthew 5:17-20
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

Galatians 3:19-24
What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions (sin), till the Seed (Our Messiah) should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.

21 Is the law then against the promises of Alahiym? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. 22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Yahusha The Messiah might be given to those who believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore the law was our teacher to bring us to The Messiah, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a teacher.

Romans 2:12
For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law

Romans 3:20
Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified (made righteous) in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

It would be crazy to think that the law has been done away with because we see transgressions or sin everywhere.

What is the end of the law that is being talked about in Romans 10:4?

Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in The Messiah Yahusha hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Let us look at the Law Of The Spirit Of Life....

Matthew 19:17-22
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Alahiym: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 He saith unto him, Which? Yahusha said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Yahusha said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Question? Is the "end of the law" the end of The Law Of The Spirit in The Messiah? I think not! Then it must be the law of sin and death that is referred to in Romans 10:4.

Let's see!

Proverbs 10:16
The labor of the righteous leads to life, The wages of the wicked to sin (breaking of the law).

Romans 6:23
For the wages (payment) of sin (breaking of the law) is death, but the gift of Elohim (Alahiym) is eternal life in Yahusha The Messiah.

Galatians 3:13
The Messiah has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

What brings on the curse of the law? SIN! See Deuteronomy 28:15-68.

So what about Romans 10:4?
"For The Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes"

This verse, for a better understanding, should be read as .....

Romans 10:4 Revised "For The Messiah is the end of the law of sin and death for righteousness to everyone who believes"

The Name of The Most High Revealed

On December 6, 2012, in The Name, by Milton Carnes

Introduction

Many teachers and elders teach some form of the name to many followers. Most have not informally or formally taken basic Hebrew language classes. Some use logic to try to decipher the name. Some are passing along the name in which they have been taught without any research to verify whether the name is true or not. Even those that know Hebrew (scholars, seminary graduates and students) use faulty deductive reasoning (logic) in understanding the name of The Most High. This can easily be determined by asking a few directed and pointed questions. Many believers will not fellowship with one another because of the name.

What qualifies me to write an article on the Name of The Most High? My journey in learning the Hebrew language started informally. Then I formally learned the Hebrew language in seminary school. I also have training in linguistics from the U.S. Air Force. Do I know everything that there is to know about the language of Hebrew? Absolutely Not! Pray for guidance as you go through this study. This study is not to offend but to educate. ~~ Minister YahuYada

Is his name Jehovah, Yahweh, Yahwah, Ahayah, Ha Shem, Adonai, God, The Lord, Yahuah, Yahawah, Yahuwah, Yehuveh, Yehoweh or some other name?

The Lord
The name of The Most High cannot be “The Lord” as claimed by most Christians. This is more of a title as opposed to a name. How do we know this? Proper and personal names do not begin with a definite article such as “The” in any language. Names such as “The Lisa” and “The Jessica” are unheard of in usage. The King James Bible translators replaced the Hebrew name יהוה with the phrase “The Lord” throughout the Scriptures. The Hebrew name appears almost 6519 times within the Scriptures or Old Testament.

Let us start out by looking at Psalm 68:4

Out of 13 different Bible translations of Psalm 68:4

6 translations use the name "The Lord"
5 translations use the name "Jah"
1 translation has the name "Jehovah"
1 translation has the name "Yah"

See for yourself and then let the scriptures speak!

What we do know for sure is that the Hebrew language both modern and ancient has no "j" sound in it. Therefore, the name "JAH" is incorrect.

Now let's look at some of the 48 scriptures containing the name "Yah" that has been replaced:


 
Lastly, what do we know about the name (YHUH) also called the Tetragrammaton?

YHWH or YHUH (Yod Hey Waw Hey) is listed as Strong's #H3068 but there is also a 3 letter spelling also listed as Yahu (Yod Hey Waw) from Strong's #H3068 (See Brown Driver & Briggs; ppg 397a & 397b)

We do know that the beginning of the name YHUH is "Yah" (The YH).
 
In the ancient language, these letters do not exist: J, W, V. The letter commonly called W (waw) and V (vav) is actually a vowel that produce the U or "oo" sound in English.
 
How do we know this? The Etymology of Hebrew Words or Root Words will clearly reveal this. This can be found in any good Hebrew to English Concordance. I suggest you use The Blue Letter Bible at http://www.blueletterbible.org/
 
The ancient language consist of mostly consonants. There are three natural vowels in the ancient language: A = "ah sound", U = "oo sound" and Y = "Y consonant" or "vowel I". The ancient language does not have the vowel points used by the modern Hebrew. The vowel points were added to the text.
 
Rules to the language
#1. When two consonants are together, the vowel "A" which carries the "ah" sound is added in between the letters or consonants. For example, YH becomes YAH and it is pronounced YahH.
 
#2. Every syllable must begin with one consonant and have only one vowel. The exception would be any word that start with the letter "U". Two vowels CANNOT be put together in a word or in a syllable. The letter "A" which carries the "ah" sound is never used before or after the letter "U" or "oo" sound.

#3. A Hebrew syllable begins with a consonant. A syllable can be either a consonant plus a vowel (CV) or a consonant plus a vowel plus a consonant (CVC).

Therefore YHWH or YHVH should read YHUH and this name should be pronounced "YA" as the first syllable and "HUH" (as in Winnie The Pooh) as the second syllable or YAHUH (pronounced YAHOOH) as the complete name. The final "H" is silent (Yahu). The short form of the name is "YAH" and the long form is "YAHUH" or "YAHU". We see the long form in the names of the prophets and the name of The Messiah.

* Hallelujah ("j" but pronounced with the "y" sound) which means "Praise Yah".


- Produces a "Y" or "I" sound.


- As a Hebrew letter, it produces the "H".


- Also called "Vav" or "Waw" but should be "Uau". As a Hebrew vowel, it produces an "oo" (u) sound.


- As a Hebrew letter, it produces the "H" sound in english. This letter is typically silent when it follows the vowel "U" with the "oo" sound.

We do know that YHUH is not pronounced "Yahovah" (YHVH) because of the Germanic influence on the modern day Hebrew language. There is no "V" sound in the ancient Hebrew language. JHVH commonly called JeHovah is closely related to YHUH but more accurately pronounced YAHUH.

The Germanic influence on the Hebrew language came from the Ashkenazi Jews. Ashkenazi Jews are descended from the medieval Jewish communities along the Rhine in Germany from Alsace in the south to the Rhineland in the north. Ashkenaz is the medieval Hebrew name for this region and for Germany.

Many Ashkenazi Jews later migrated, largely eastward, forming communities in non German speaking areas, including Hungary, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Eastern Europe. These were the people persecuted by Adolph Hitler.
 
Genesis 10:1-3 (King James Version)
1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

IEUE

This is a Greek to English transliteration from the Hebrew. The Greek language does not have a letter for letter transliteration from the Hebrew language. In the Greek language, the letters "Y" and the letter "H" do not appear. Because of this, the Greeks used the letters that closely matched the sounds of the Hebrew language. Thus we have IEUE instead of YHUH. English is a better language for transliterating from Hebrew because of its ability to almost match Hebrew letter for letter.

YaHaWaH?

This name recognizes the "A-Type Vowel". However, the letter "W" is an English letter which does not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letter "W" carries the "U" sound in Hebrew. An example of this sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. This name and language type (Lashawan Qadash) was invented by Priest Ahrayah from Harlem, New York in 1960's. For instance, shalom would be Shalawam, Halaluyah would be Halalawayah and of course YHWH would be Yahawah. For a more detailed study on why this CANNOT be the language of "The Book" CLICK HERE

Yahweh?

This name partially recognizes the "A-type Vowel" in the first two letters but ignores it in the last two letters. The letter "W" is an English letter which does not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letter "W" carries the "U" sound in Hebrew. An example of the sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. The letter "E" appears in Modern Hebrew and it can only be generated through vowel points which were added to the Biblical Text. The “A-Type Vowel” is put in between two consonants, but the creators of this name forgot to put the “A-Type Vowel” in between the letter “H” and the letter “W”.

Yehoveh, Yehoweh, Yehuveh, Yehuweh?

These names partially recognize the “A-Type Vowel”. The letters “V” & “W” are English letters with German influence upon it. The letters “V” & “W” do not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letters “V” & ”W” both carry the “U” sound in Hebrew. An example of the sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. The letter “O” appears in Modern Hebrew and it can only be generated through vowel points which were added to the Biblical Text. These names also recognize that two vowels cannot be in one syllable nor can two vowels appear together in one word. The creators of these names made up a vowel consonant called the “OV” & “OW” to compensate for the two vowel rule.

"Yeh" is more of a Modern Hebrew name as opposed to YAH being more ancient. "Yeh" is used mostly by those that have a connection to the Jewish Community while YAH is mostly used by Hebrews. There are some exceptions because this is NOT absolute. Moses/Moshe/Masha/Musha would not have called The Most High "YEH" but "YAH". Psalm 68:4 reveals that "YAH" is more correct as opposed to "YEH".

Finally, the word Hallelujah (Halaluyah) is a transliteration of the Hebrew word הַלְּלוּיָהּ which is composed of two elements: הַלְּלוּ a command to "praise" יָהּ (Yah) not Yeh.

Nearly all English versions of the Hebrew Bible translate the word as "Praise (ye) the LORD. Rarely do they transliterate the word as either "Hallelujah", "Halleluyah" or "Alleluia". There is no Halleluyeh pronunciation of the word Halleluyah.

"YEH" is typically used in Jewish Circles when beginning a word or name but rarely used when ending a word or name. An example would be Eliyah but you will never see Eliyeh.

Yahovah & Yahowah?

This name partially recognizes the "A-Type Vowel". The letters "V" & "W" are English letters with German influence upon it. The letters "V" & "W" do not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letters "V" &"W" both carry the "U" sound in Hebrew. An example of this sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. The letter "O" appears in Modern Hebrew and it can only be generated through vowel points which were added to the Biblical Text. This name also recognizes that two vowels cannot appear in one syllable nor can two vowels appear together in one word. The creators of these names made a vowel consonant called the "OV" & "OW" to compensate for the two vowel rule.

Yahwah?

This name recognizes the "A-Type Vowel". However, the "W" is an English letter that does not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letter "W" carries the "U" sound in Hebrew. An example of this sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. The "A-Type Vowel" is put in between two consonants, but the creators of this name forgot to put the "A-Type Vowel" in between the letter "H" and the letter "W".

Yahuwah?

The letter "W" is an English letter that does not appear in Biblical Hebrew. "W" carries the "U" sound originally in Hebrew. An example of this sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh. This name also recognizes that two vowels cannot be in one syllable nor can two vowels appear together in one word. The creators of this name made a vowel consonant called the "UW" to compensate for the two vowel rule.

Yahuah?

This name is saying a lot.

The Hebrew letter “Hey” can be called a "Mater Lectionis" which means "Mother of Reading" which simply means "Vowel". The Hebrew letter 'Hey" can be used as a consonant represented by the letter "H" in English or it can represent the vowel "A" in English which carries the "ah" sound.

One problem with the Hebrew Letter "Hey" being a vowel (English letter "A") is that The GREEKS did not transliterate this Hebrew letter as an "A" because the GREEK language has a letter that represents the letter "A" and that letter is called "alpha". Instead The Greeks used the Greek letter "Eta" to represent the Hebrew letter "Hey" because this letter (eta) was closer in pronunciation.

If you transliterate the Hebrew name יְהֹוָה to English using the Hebrew letter "Hey" as a consonant, which is the English letter "H", you will get YHUH. If you do the same by using the Hebrew letter "Hey" as a vowel which represents the letter "A" in English, you will get YAUA and possibly YHUA.

Here is what I see has happened. It seems as if they have taken the transliterated letter "A" and replaced it with the sound of the letter "ah" so that you get Yahuah. This is one possibility. The next issue is this ...

Does the name YAHUAH violate the rules of the language?

Some would be scholars say that if the letter "D" (Dalet in Hebrew) is removed from the name Yahudah (Judah) then that would produce the name Yahuah. Logically in English, this sound correct but you cannot do this because it violates the orthography or spelling rules of the Hebrew language. The Hebrew language is very sophisticated just like any other language.

Here are the rules of the language again ....

#1 A Hebrew syllable must begin with a consonant. A syllable can be either a consonant plus a vowel [CV] or a consonant plus a vowel plus a consonant [CVC].

#2 Every syllable must begin with one consonant and have only one vowel. The exception would be any WORD that start with the letter "U"; the conjunction.

In the name YAUA (Yahuah), we have three vowels together and a syntax or rule #1 violation. Yahuah is three syllables. If we use this rendition YHUA, we still have three syllables Y-HU-A ... look at rule #2 of the language.

man

This name is closer in pronunciation to Yahuah ....

yahu-a

1 Kings 16:1 Then the word of יְהֹוָה came to Jehu יֵהוּא (H3058) the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying ......

The answer lies within the usage of the Hebrew letter Aleph. In the language spelling rules (Orthography), a Hebrew word and/or a syllable must start with a consonant and you cannot have two vowels together in a syllable or word. Words or syllables DO NOT begin with vowels.

The Aleph which is a consonant allows us to begin words or syllables with a vowel sound and it allows us to have two vowels together without violating the rules of the language. For instant, look at אָב "Ab" in English meaning father. The word starts with a consonant "Aleph", the vowel 'A' follows the consonant "Aleph" and then the Hebrew letter "Bet" or the letter "B" [CVC].

In Ancient Hebrew, the letter or vowel "A" with the "ah" sound is placed between consonants. Look at the name for Israel. It should be Yashara'al יִשְׂרָאֵל. The apostrophe symbol represents the Aleph in the transliteration into English. But look, you have two vowels together (the letter "A") and the apostrophe which is the Aleph (a consonant) separates the two vowels. A vowel/vowel sound follows the Hebrew letter Aleph. Jehu יֵהוּא or Yahu' has the Aleph at the end of the name. With this in mind, יֵהוּא would be pronounced in English as YaHU'a or Yahu'ah or Yahuah. YHUH or יְהֹוָה cannot be pronounced Yahuah because it violates the orthography of the Hebrew language both modern and ancient.

YHUH has two syllables .... Y-HUH pronounced "YA - HUH" or "Ya -Hu"

The 'ah" sound is produced by the "A-Type Vowel" and not by the letter "H". We can see this in how the translators transliterated Psalm 68:4 H3050 Yahh

AHAYAH

Exodus 3:14 And The Almighty said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

15 And The Almighty said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, YHUH The Almighty of your fathers, The Almighty of Abraham, The Almighty of Isaac, and The Almighty of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Isaiah 42:8 I [am] YHUH (יְהֹוָה): that [is] my name: and my honor will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

The name YHUH/יְהֹוָה appears more than 6000 times in Scripture. My question is this if you are using the name 'AHAYAH', "What do you do when you encounter the name יְהֹוָה that appears more than 6000 times in Scripture?" Do you replace it with AHAYAH or do you say that it doesn't really appear in Scripture?

With the usage of AHAYAH, The Most High is making a statement about himself. He is introducing himself to Moses by saying "I AM THE EXISTING ONE". HAYAH is a verb that means "To Be,To Exist". However in verse 15, he states his name as a memorial to all generations יְהֹוָה(YHUH). Now ... let us look at the many uses in Scripture of the verb "hayah":

1--2014 8-58-46-1

The term (אהיה) "AHAYAH" appears within Scripture 20 times
outside of Exodus 3:14.

1. Genesis 26:3
2. Genesis 31:3
3. Exodus 3:12
4. Exodus 4:12
5. Exodus 4:15
6. Deuteronomy 31:23
7. Joshua 1:5
8. Joshua 3:7
9. Judges 6:16
10. 2 Samuel 15:34
11. 1 Chronicle 17:13
12. 1 Chronicles 28:6
13. Jeremiah 24:7
14. Jeremiah 30:22
15. Jeremiah 32:38
16. Ezekiel 11:20
17. Ezekiel 36:28
18. Ezekiel 37:23
19. Hosea 14:5
20. Zechariah 8:8

Ahayah is expressed in the form of the phrase "I Will Be." The first place "Ahayah" can be seen is in Genesis 26:3 but it appears as (הייתי) in Genesis 17:8. It also appears in Exodus 3:12 before it appears in Exodus 3:14.

Exodus 3:12 And he said, Certainly I will be (אהיה) with thee; and this shall be a token unto you, that I HAVE SENT YOU: When you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve The Almighty upon this mountain.

Verse 12 indicates the usage of "Ahayah" but Moses realized that this was not his name or even a name. This can be known because of the question Moses asked in verse 13.

When we get to Exodus 3:13, we have to be very careful in how we interpret Hebrew prose (writing style).

Verse 13 And Moses said unto The Almighty, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The Almighty of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, what is his name? What shall I say unto them?

The Almighty answers part of the question in verse 14 and then he answers part of the same question in verse 15. Notice in verse 14, he did not say that his name was Ahayah. Once again, Ahayah is also used in verse 12 but as the phrase "I Will Be."

Verse 14 And The Almighty said unto Moses, I WILL BE That I WILL BE (relative clause) and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I WILL BE hath sent me unto you.

[15] And The Almighty said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, YaHUH The Almighty of your fathers, The Almighty of Abraham, The Almighty of Isaac, and The Almighty of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

An interesting side note: When the Hebrew Scriptures were translated into Greek, AHAYAH was not transliterated as a name but translated as the phrase "I Will Be."

Jehovah (JHVH)

This name partially recognizes the "A-type Vowel" in the last two letters (VH). The letter "V" is an English letter with German influence upon it. The letter "V" does not appear in Biblical Hebrew. The letter "V" carries the "U" sound in Hebrew. An example of this sound would be in the name Winnie The Pooh.

The letter "O" appears in Modern Hebrew and it can only be generated through vowel points which were added to the Biblical Text. This name also recognizes that two vowels cannot be in one syllable nor can two vowels appear together in one word. The creators of this name made a vowel consonant called the "OV" to compensate for the two vowel rule. Lastly, there is no letter "J" or "J sounding letter" in Hebrew. According to Psalm 68:4, the first two letters in the name is YH pronounced as YAH and not JEH.

Ha Shem?

In Hebrew, this means "The Name". This is more of a title instead of a personal name. How do we know this? Typically in Hebrew as well as in English, Proper Nouns (Names) do not need a definite article "The" attached to it. We don't go around saying "The Percy", "The Nancy".

Adonai?

This is a Hebrew word meaning "The Lord" or "Lord". This is a replacement for the sacred name (YHUH). The JEWS thought that YHUH was too sacred to be pronounced.

GOD?

God is the English name given to a singular being in theistic and deistic religions (and other belief systems) who is either the sole deity in monotheism, or a single deity in polytheism.

The earliest written form of the Germanic word god comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic guđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ghu-tó-m was based on the root * ghau(ə)-, which meant either "to call" or "to invoke".The Germanic words for god were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the word became a masculine syntactic form.

The word GOD from strong's concordance means Elohim in Modern Hebrew and The Almighty in Biblical Hebrew. A better English translation would be "Mighty Ones".

What Was Nailed To The Cross Or Stake?

On December 3, 2012, in Bible Lessons, by Milton Carnes

What are the handwritings of ordinance that were against us that were nailed to the cross? Is it the law? No, and here is why. The Messiah said,

Matthew 5:17-18 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

1 John 3:4 “Sin is breaking/transgression of the law”. If there is no law, then that means there is no sin. Last time I checked in this world, sin is everywhere. The law simply tells us what sin is.

Romans 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified (made righteous) in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

If the law gives us knowledge of what sin is then how could it be nailed to the cross? Something else was taken out of the way … but what?

Let us go to Colossians 2 11 In him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of The Messiah, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of Elohim, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses (sins) and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses (sins), 14 having wiped out the handwriting of ordinances, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (some translations state in the ordinances/decrees/ certificate of debt).

[Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Elohim is eternal life in The Messiah Yahusha] (The Sin Debt we owe for breaking the law).

Certificate of debt (Strong's # G5498) (cheirographon from cheir = hand + grapho = write) is literally handwriting or a handwritten document and then a written record of a debt such as a promissory note. A document is written in one's own hand as a proof of obligation, e.g., a note of indebtedness. The word means primarily a bond written by a person pledging himself to make certain payments.

Figuratively in the only NT use in Colossians 2:14 cheirographon refers not to the law itself, but to the record of charges (for breaking Elohim's law), which stood against us and which Elohim symbolically removed by "nailing it to the cross," handwritten account, record of debts (Friberg, T., Friberg, B., & Miller, N. F. Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament. Baker Academic)

Colossians 2:15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it (through The Messiah's death and resurrection).

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge (pass sentence upon or condemn) you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. In verse 17, the word "is" does not appear in the text but was added by the translators.

The body is of Christ does not make sense. Colossians 2:16,17 should read:

Let no man therefore judge (pass sentence upon you or condemn you) you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body of Christ (The Messiah).

Only the body of The Messiah can judge you in respect of what you eat, drink, the holy days and the sabbaths contained within the law (directions and instructions).

Romans 10:4 For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes.

Which Law?

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yahusha hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Two parts of the Law ... law of life and law of sin/death

From Torah Deuteronomy 30

[15] See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

[16] In that I command thee this day to love YAHUH thy Alahiym, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou may live and multiply: and YAHUH thy Alahiym shall bless thee in the land whither thou go to possess it.

[17] But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

[18] I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

[19] I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

[20] That thou may love YAHUH thy Alahiym, and that thou may obey his voice, and that thou may cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou may dwell in the land which YAHUH sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

Did the Messiah redeem us from the whole law or from the law of sin/death; the curse of the law?

Galatians 3:13
Messiah hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:

What is the curse of the law?

Deuteronomy 28:15
But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of YAHUH thy Alahiym, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

The curse of the law can be found in Deuteronomy 28:16-68.

Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth..

Psalm 119:151 Thou art near, O YAH; and all thy commandments are truth.

John 8:32
And ye shall know the truth (commandments, law), and the truth (commandments, law) shall make you free.

Matthew 19:17
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Alahiym: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
