(WHAT’S GOING ON WITH GOD AND MAN)
God the Father: In the beginning (He) created the heaven and the earth. Gen 1:1

Christ: Is the Light of the World, we who follow after him will not walk in darkness, but shall walk in the light of life. (John 8:12/John 9:4&5)
The Torah doesn’t save; it is the measuring rod, the teaching of how apart man is from God his creator. Salvation comes only by approaching God and asking him for forgiveness for our sin (archer’s terminology for missing the mark)
We don’t keep Torah to be saved, but we keep Torah because we are saved.
Torah is also called the "Tree of Life," as it points us to God as He reveals Himself in the Sephirot, and thus His salvation. Going back to the time of Moses, God Himself states that His Torah is the way of "life." http://www.yashanet.com/studies/revstudy/text/yeshua_and_torah.htm
