Preface

The contents of this book were originally planned as a supplement or appendix to the proposed Ebionite siddur, or prayer book. But at this time I feel that the size of the commandments list will burden the size of the siddur; and additionally, this book is badly needed due to its practicality for the 'Evyonim and perhaps its use for the general reader as well. It is hoped that in days coming a commentary on Torah commandments, or mitswot, will be completed. Such a commentary will be written from the Ebionite viewpoint and application, including any halakha we have developed around any particular commandment, and related information. The commentary has already begun but this volume is needed now and as a clearly directed, purposeful document; and so it can surely wait until a later time. In admission, Commandments of the Torah is not an original work as much as it is a compilation of many lists collected over the years and gone over and refined. The Rabbinic 613 enumeration can be found a multitude of places by searching the internet. So our claim is not to originality, but are confident of the usefulness of our lists. This book also mark the inauguration of the imprint of publications from the Ebionite Jewish Community, we call YES, the Yahwistic Education Society. We hope it is just the first in service to our movement. We hope to soon release our publications to the general public. So here it is with hope that the God of Israel will bless you as you strive to live by the gift of His holy Instructions to mankind— the commandments of His Torah.

Introduction

The Ebionites hold that the commandments of God's Instructions, or Torah, of our Scriptures are the authoritative source for living life, a system of legislation superior to any other, and thus it is very appropriate to have an aid in finding and reading pertinent commandments (mitzwot) that assist us daily as sons of Israel devoted to YHWH, the God of Israel. We hope that Commandments of the Torah will lie close by your Tanak1 to aid you in study of them each day. It is God's true guide to life, saving us from all the ideologies and religious cults, as well as simple ignorance and situation ethics. In this book the commandments of God's Torah are listed to find them in various ways more quickly. We are not so naïve to insist one theory or belief concerning the origins of those commandments to everyone as the unmitigated truth of truths. Documentary Source Hypothesis proposes that various collections of laws (and narrative passages, etc.) were composed in different times by scribes working from documents which they edited and rearranged. We provide a table for this information, without intention of promoting it as "true". Others contend that every consonant and perhaps every vowel-point of the ancient Hebrew and Aramaic of the biblical texts are perfectly holy and evidence of the design of God Himself. But whatever the position of the reader, we prefer the book aids anyone, regardless. Be that as it may, it suffices to say that we know no better and no holier and more just guide to human life, no better system of government, physically and spiritually, to live within. This analogy might explain Torah's importance to outsiders to the Ebionite Jewish Movement, perhaps to the benefit of a doubt they may have regarding the commandments: Many people attribute no miraculous holiness or perfection to the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States; however, they choose it as their social contract for life and gladly live or die by it. They see it as the superior way of life. We attach ourselves to the Torah of YHWH in this identical manner of love and devotion. The Torah is the "constitution" of our people and religious heritage. We are citizens of a very real Yahwistic2 nation existing for individual Jews wherever they may be. Recalling the old saying of the Christian writings, ...render unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar and unto God what belongs 1. Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim or Instructions, Prophets, and Writings; Miqra' or Scriptures, all being various ways of referring to the Hebrew Bible. 2. Yahwism is the religion based on the biblical revelation to the Israelites, especially to those at Mount Sinai.

ii

to God, also illustrates the Ebionite view clearly: Nothing belongs to Caesar and all belongs to God, especially ourselves. Such is our patriotism to God and His Torah. The Historical Ebionite Stance on Torah While the Christian religion, all too often influenced by the Hellenist Paul of Tarsus, has a negative or antithetical stance to God's Torah, either rejecting it altogether, ameliorating it to gentile culture, or manipulating it via allegory, etc., the Ebionites always maintained their allegiance to the God of Israel by Torah observance and believe the man Jesus of Nazareth also taught Torah observance. This is one of the hallmarks of ebionitism in polemics of the Pauline (Christian) Church. One of the earliest Paulines to speak of the Ebionites was Irenaeus (d. 200-203), a bishop at what today is Lyon in France [text in brackets supplied]: Against the Heresies, 1.26 "Those who are called Ebionites agree that the world was made by God; but their opinions with respect to the Lord [Jesus] are similar to those of Cerinthus and Carpocrates. They use the Gospel according to Matthew only, and repudiate the Apostle Paul, maintaining that he was an apostate from the law. As to the prophetical writings, they endeavor to expound them in a somewhat singular manner: they practice circumcision, persevere in the observance of those customs which are enjoined by the law [Torah], and are so Judaic in their style of life, that they even adore Jerusalem as if it were the house of God." Another early Pauline writer, showing some dependence on Irenaeus, was Hippolytus (d. ca. 235) and in his own heresy book, Against All Heresies, says: "The Ebionaeans, however, acknowledge that the world was made by Him Who is in reality God, but they propound legends concerning the Christ similarly with Cerinthus and Carpocrates.3 They live conformably to the customs of the Jews, alleging that they are justified. according to the law, and saying that Jesus was justified by fulfilling the law. And therefore it was, (according to the Ebionaeans,) that (the Savior) was named (the) Christ of God and Jesus, since not one of the rest (of mankind) had observed completely the law. For if even any other had fulfilled the commandments (contained) in the law, he would have been that Christ. And the (Ebionaeans allege) that they themselves also, when in like manner they fulfill (the law), are able to become Christs; for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in a like sense with all (the rest of the human family)." 7.22

3. Gentile writers Cerinthus and Carpocrates stated that Jesus, i.e., Yeshua, was not divine but mortal born to human parents. Little is known of their other doctrines.

iii

"But the Ebionaeans assert that the world is made by the true God, and they speak of Christ in a similar manner with Cerinthus. They live, however, in all respects according to the law of Moses, alleging that they are thus justified." 10.18. These are the earliest mentions from the Pauline Church of the Ebionites before other attributions were made more than a hundred to three hundred years later of much more dubious nature. However scandalous to Paulines who had deified Jesus by this time, these early claims of Jewishness are easy to find with basis in the gospels and other Christian-Pauline 4 writings. In the gospels we find such statements as "Think not that I come to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I came not to destroy but to magnify...." We also see hints of controversy concerning Paul, his position on Torah, circumcision, disobedience to Ya`aqov HaTsaddiq (James), and valid accusations of Paul's apostasy from God in the Christian book, Acts (21:21ff.). We also read of Ebionite-Yeshuine devotion to Temple worship continuing as faithful Jews, just as Peter is confounded by a vision created to allow admittance of gentiles and indirectly attack kashrut (i.e., dietary prohibitions; Acts 2:46, 3:1; 10:11ff). It is clear that Irenaeus and Hippolytus are referring to (and attacking) the same faithful Jews, followers of Jesus, in Acts. It also reveals that these followers never received any teaching from Jesus that he was anything but a man upholding the Torah of God, striving to keep it purely as an example to them. However, the Church apologists sought to conform him to Paul of Tarsus as anti-Torah, and responsible for the general antinomian view of the Christian Church. In fact, if the earliest followers of Jesus were Torah observant in imitation of Jesus, then the Christian Church follows an antinomian parody of the historic Jesus as their messiah— as a zar meshîh (that is, a pagan messiah). Using the Church's own terminology, their Christ would be an anti-christ, a false anti-God messiah, the opposite of the historic Jesus. However, it is clear that both the Ebionites today and their predecessors of the Yeshuine Jewish "reign of God" movement were fully observant to the holy Torah and Jesus fully subservient and subordinate to it. Therefore, the Ebionites center upon Torah rather than Jesus, and Jesus' importance as a revered teacher in regard to a certain approach to living Torah. Even the question of his actual existence is at best of secondary consideration. We can be assured that the "Christian gospels" are not what the very first followers had or believed, and hardly of "one accord," and more edited and shaped than inspired. To find authoritative teaching in them is akin to searching for coins with a metal detector. Yet, we can easily resort to good teaching, inspired and inspiring from the Torah. This book is produced with this in mind. And so, the Ebionites are "Torah-centric" rather than "Yeshua-centric" and to show us that Jesus taught anything contrary to the Torah would change our estimation regarding him. We would discount him and remain observant to the Torah. We seek to return Jesus to Judaism at the expense of Chrisitianity. So now from Ebionite matters to those of Torah. The lists of Torah commandments are collected from too many sources over the years to list and 4. Terms: Christian, Pauline, Gentile all refer to the same "Church", i.e., Christianity. Yeshuine, Ebionite refer to the historic "Jesus Movement" as a Jewish sectarian group. Yeshua and Yeshuine refer to the historic Jesus, that is "Yeshua."

iv

losing information from which to cite. For this we apologize. All the commandments are from the Tanak, and not from Rabbinic sources and codes except for the Taryag Mitswot (613)5 commandment list. In Rabbinic terms our lists are sh'biktav, those written in the text of the biblical Torah. It is the primary source of legislation around which all the rest of Scripture revolves. It is the standard to which Israel's spirituality and earthly sojourns must be measured; it is this measure to which the prophets point us in toward repentance; and it is rule that Israel rejoices in or laments the failure to repent in the Writings. In regards to Rabbinic law, based on written Torah but formed by additional development by a succession of devoted teachers who attempted to make Torah viable in succeeding generations according to the environment Jews found themselves in the world around them, there is some difficulty with our relationship to them. We generally do not hold that this sh'be`al-peh, or orally given Torah is binding although traditional Jews say that it was transmitted by mouth successively from the same time as the written Torah. From this oral Torah comes a whole range of Rabbinic legislation continuing in same form even today. A companion in Rabbinic observance of Torah can be found conveniently in the Yoreh De'ah (section of Rabbi Ya'aqov ben Asher's Arba`ah Turim) or Rabbi Yosef Karo's Shulhan Aruk. We do not disagree with it "oral Torah" on principle, and many of us do study it, finding good reasoning and viable opinion. Additionally, we believe the Reign of God requires compromises toward achieving the spirit of klal Yisrael, uniting all Jews as one people. One vastly important Rabbinic principle teaches that a commandment must be observed in a way that will preserve life since we are told to live in the commandments (piqqu'ah nefesh). We believe that the son of Yosef, Yeshua, also taught similarly, and we try to follow this very same principle. Yet another principle in our understanding of Torah is our desire to take the more simple, literal meaning (peshat) of a commandment. However, for Rabbinic interpreters there are other principles of exposition equally important. These differences must be dealt with in a different way, time, and format. But it all starts with Torah for every Jew, every worshiper of YHWH, the God of Israel. And so this book of lists presents commandments rather than commentary and interpretation.

D. A Rabbinic Enumeration By Subject

D. A Rabbinic Enumeration By Subject: Introduction The rabbinic authorities count 613 (acronym zevn b"ixz, taryag mitswot) commandments of the Written Torah (torat sh'biktav, or mitswot d'oraita) from which their additional Oral Torah (torat b'al peh, or mitswot d'rabbanan) is derived. Ebionites strive to observe only the Written Torah. Rabbinic Law involves more than Written Torah, and their Oral Torah is at least equally binding. The taqqanot (amendments, correcting extensions) are commandments which expand rabbinic halakha (rules, "way of walking") and may be found listed in the Shulhan Aruk, etc., but minhag (custom) and gezeyriyn (additional rabbinic provisions made to avoid breaking a commandment) also make up rabbinic halakha. Of these 613, 365 are negative (mitswot lo' ta`aseh, commandments not to do), and 248 positive (mitswot `aseh, commandments to do). Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan (Chafetz Chayim) identifies 77 positive commandments and 194 negative commandments capable of being kept today. He enumerates 26 commandments "contiguous upon the Land of Israel. This is of some interest to the Ebionites as most commandments seen as invalid today are dependent upon the existence of the Temple such as sacrifices, ritual purity concerning Temple attendance, and fulfillment of vows culminating at the Temple (e.g., the Nazirite vow). There are three commandments not to do and it is deemed to be preferable to die rather than commit them (yehareg we`al ta`avor): murder, idolatry, and perverse relations (see, Lev 18). (Another type is mesirat nefesh, commandments observed even through self-sacrifice.) The enumeration of 613 has not been universally acceptable and has been challenged in the past. Nevertheless, the number has become symbolic to refer to the entire corpus of the Written Torah. We make no claim that there are 613 commandments, but hold the position of doing rather than numbering them. From the article "The 613 Commandments," by Kaufmann Kohler and Isaac Broydé in the Jewish Encyclopedia: That the law of Moses contains 613 commandments is stated by R. Simlai, a Palestinian haggadist, who says (Mak. 23b): "Six hundred and thirteen commandments were revealed to Moses; 365 being prohibitions equal in number to the days of the year, and 248 being mandates corresponding in number to the bones of the human body." The number 613 is found as early as tannaitic times, e.g., in a saying of Simon ben Eleazar (Mek., Yitro, Bahodesh, 5) and one of Simon ben Azzai (Sifre, Deut. 67 Friedman's ed., p. 90b), and is apparently based upon ancient tradition (see Tan., Ki Tetze, ed. Buber, 2; Ex. R. xxxii.; Num. R. xiii., xviii.; Yeb. 47b; Shab. 87a; Ned. 25a; Shebu. 29a; comp. Bacher, "Ag. Tan." i. 413, ii. 436). The authenticity of the statements attributed to R. Simlai, however, has been questioned by authorities such as Nahmanides and Abraham ibn Ezra (see M. Bloch, in "Rev. Et. Juives," i. 197, 210; v. 27 et seq.; Weiss, "Dor," p. 74, note 50). The first to undertake the task of identifying the commandments was Simeon Qahira, in his "Halakot Gedolot." He begins with the prohibitions, which he classes in the order of the gravity of the punishments incurred by their transgression, while in regard to the

93

Phillips, Commandments of the Torah

mandates he follows the order of the parashiyyot, beginning with the Decalogue Qahira was followed by Saadia, Gabirol, and many others, who enumerated the 613 commandments in liturgical poems (see Azharot). In order to make up the number 613, Qahira and the poets just mentioned were compelled to incorporate many rabbinical laws. This method was criticized by Maimonides, who published a work entitled "Sefer ha-Mitzwot," laying down fourteen guiding principles for the identification of the commandments, which he enumerates accordingly. Some of these principles were attacked by Nahmanides and others, who showed that Maimonides himself had not always been consistent. New identifications were therefore proposed by Moses ben Jacob of Coucy, author of the "Sefer Mitzwot ha-Gadol" (SeMaG), and Isaac ben Joseph of Corbeil, author of the "Sefer Mitzwot ha-Qaton" (SeMaQ). The list that follows is given a designation of CC after the Chafetz Chayim's (Yisrael Meir Kagan, 1838-1933) Sefer Hamitvos Hakatzer (1931, The Concise Book of Mitzvoth, Feldheim: New York, 1990), with either A, Affirmative commandment, or N, Negative commandment, followed by the number of positive or negative commandment of Maimonides lists. The added designation of I indicates commands Kagan considers valid to be observed only in Eretz Israel. Where the Evyonim have a disagreement or variant view on a commandment as interpreted by the rabbis, it is noted or designated with italics type. These rabbinic views are left as they appeared in the original source to give context on the differences between the rabbinic and Ebionite positions.

Essay Is the Torah Impossible to Keep? Originally appeared as a post on the World Ebionite Communique listserve on January 11, 2009. Revised version reprinted here.

The other day I was browsing through Amazon Com's "Recommended for You" and I saw an interesting title. I won't do an advertisement, but the title was something like "A Year of Living Biblically" and so I clicked and read all about it. It was written by a young secular, assimilated Jewish agnostic who did research reading Torah, talking to rabbis, and scholars; and to maintain a popular appeal, I assume, he spoke to various Christians and ministers. Bad choice. His goal was to live literally by biblical commandments. The result was reported that he became a more spiritual person. So then I read some reviews as always and I read one that made me absolutely furious. It was by a condescending, arrogant, self-worshiping Christian minister who declared that the author had come to the true conclusion— nobody can live by the "Law." What else could he say since Christianity is based on the belief that Torah is impossible and therefore worthless except as an object to prove Christian "grace" and that only a divine person could keep Torah "perfectly." There's only a slight problem. Such a belief means that God is a liar. Deuteronomy 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of YHWH, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day. 9 And YHWH thy God will make thee plenteous in all the work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, for good: for YHWH will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: 10 if thou shalt obey the voice of YHWH thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law; if thou turn unto YHWH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. 11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not too hard for thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

Phillips, Commandments of the Torah

God says here that you can keep Torah! There is no talk of perfectly but instead that keeping Torah brings about a nation blessed by God on this earth. Christianity doesn't talk a lot about earth. They talk of Gnostic perfection and inhabiting higher planes of spiritual existence. The preacher reviewer glibly laughs in God's face as if He were a Lying Fool. If I want to know about Torah, its supposed difficulty, or anything about it, the last person on earth that I would ask would be a worker in the Christian Cult. I would not touch a religion that accuses God of lying with a ten foot toilet plunger. However, I do look forward to God flushing it away soon. It sounds as if the author of the book got some bad information. Without even reading the book it is revealed that the Torah was not in his heart or near to him. He actually went to those over the sea, gentiles of a church that follow a false revelation "from heaven" and imposes others, including Jews, to accept its own "law." Why would he go to idolaters to learn about YHWH alone and His Torah? God says, as best as I can understand, that His Torah is not too difficult to keep at all when you instill its teaching into your mind and heart and actually attempt to do it. Why do Christians hate God's Commandments so much? It is a civil, social, economic and morally spiritual set of legislation that cannot be bought and revised by money and politicians. Meanwhile, gentiles are in favor of their own laws rather than God's which, as we all know, are bought and sold, and that change to suit the powerful. And they are all laws we cannot keep perfectly, and they multiply daily, not in our hearts, minds, or in our mouth but only lawyers who keep gentile law far out of reach where only the rich man can afford it justice. So what do we do about these imperfect secular laws that we cannot keep perfectly? The secular law says we cannot murder, steal, or drive over the speed limit. But they are impossible to keep as is witnessed by the millions of people transgressing them regularly, many who sit in prisons. I suggest that we "do away with them" in the Christian way since the civil laws are impossible to keep. I suggest we do away with churches since millions of Christians do not attend them, and most people who do attend them are some of the worst kind of people. Certainly they are more evil than ancient Israel ever was. Christianity follows some simple "spiritual laws" like treating others exactly as you expect to be treated, and "love." But Christians have failed miserably at just these few things, both individually and as a religion. Let's do away with Christianity. God won't mind since He had nothing to do with it to begin with. You can live biblically for much longer than a year. You were not created to be perfect, but if you cannot believe God is telling the perfect truth, I invite you to show us a better body of legislation for humans. You won't find it in state, federal, or Christian precepts or principles. The Torah is God's ideal set before us for our own benefit, a perfect gift to Israel and mankind.
