    Shalom Yitzchak, thank you for the article.

    Can you clarify what are the commandments that Gentiles who believe in Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel should observe?
    It is my understanding that these commandments come from the Noachide Covenant.

    What can a person then do, who feels compelled from within to observe all the commandments through a heart of gratitude and love towards G-d?

    How can a Gentile believer change his/her status, and thereby take upon them the observance of all of the commandments in the Torah?

    Thank you

      You are correct about the Noachide Covenant, as for the rest of the commandments, to my understanding based on Acts 15 (“It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. 20 Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood. 21 For the law of Moses has been preached in every city from the earliest times and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath.”) one shouldn’t overburden himself, and each week you study the weekly Torah portion and learn something new. It is a process, not a decision of the moment.
