A matter that was touched upon in the J4J thread brought me to this question…
Christians (and please correct me if I’m wrong) don’t keep the commandments (kosher eating, blowing shofar on Rosh Hashanna, etc.) because they believe that Jesus came and fulfilled the Law.
However, I have also noticed that Christians DO observe some of the Law. I don’t see anyone saying that murder or adultery is permitted. That led me to wonder who decided (or what was the criteria to decide) which laws stayed and which ones went.
My first thought was that the Ten Commandments might be what stayed and the rest went. However, upon further reflection, I realized that the prohibitions of witchcraft, incest, usury and others remained event though they aren’t in the TC.
So, what was the criteria? Which laws from the Torah still apply today to Christians and which ones don’t?
