Mystical One-Law Thought of the Day (Courtesy of Mordecai of Chernobyl)

"Commenting on the phrase 've-zot torat ha-Adam' [literally:  'and this is the Torah of man'] (2 Sam. 7:19), the Hasidic master Mordecai of Chernobyl explained it to mean that 'the man himself becomes the Torah.'  The Torah becomes incarnated in him," Sherwin, Faith Finding Meaning, pg. 51.

The incarnation of the Torah sounds a lot like what happens in the New Covenant.  Something to ponder.
