On the Fringe of the Law

Whether or not you realize it yet, this is a pun.

First, it is in our Father’s law to have a fringe on our garments. It is commanded to be all blue, or at least partly. Here is the command;

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
“And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the [Father], and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
“That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your [Father].”
Numbers 15:38-40

As a witness our Saviour had a fringe on His robe;

“And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.” Mar_6:56
” And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,”Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.”And [Savior] said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?” Luke 8:43-45

The second part of the pun is that this command is simply on the fringe of the entire law.

There are multiple “books of the law” (or Torah in Hebrew). Leviticus is one of them. Many folks believe the law -all or part of it- was done away with at Messiah’s death. I say you look into it yourself. NO ASSUMPTIONS.  Unless, of course, you want hindrances in your study… 😀          …But I know it’s kinda hard to leave ’em behind….

See the next little study: “Is it o.k. to feast with the Father?”

 

 

Pretend those fringes are blue…Although a little excessive!indian-fringe
