Jesus didn't come to do away with the Torah; he came to write it on our hearts. He came to teach it to us so well, make us so conversant in it and so in love with it, that we would become virtuosos of the Law. He came to teach us how to make our lives masterworks of Torah, living the deep truth of it so deeply that we even seem to be breaking it sometimes. He came to teach us not to do away with it, but to fulfill it.

I have no idea what this means. So in love with it? He must be talking about a different 'Law'.

He might be thinking of what I think of as the 'Word', the problem you have is that you see the Word as what is written in the NT and the Torah as what is written in the 5 books of Moses maybe.

Read what the letter to the Hebrews says about the New covenant and the writing of his laws, word, torah, on our hearts and you may understand what this person is getting at in a different light.

The Word of God is living and active,
