"the instructor will teach all of the sons of light about human nature..."

Mankind has two natures in which he can walk until the time of his visitation.
These are the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit.
From the source of light come the generations of truth, and from the source
of darkness come the generations of deceit.

The prince of lights has dominion over the sons of justice because
they walk in the way of light. The angel of darkness has dominion over
the sons of deceit since they walk in the ways of darkness.
(Pharisees are called sons of darkness in the Dead Sea Scrolls)

God created all the spirits of light and the spirits of darkness.
He uses their works, paths, and plans.
God will love the spirits of light throughout all the Ages." (Believers are righteous in God's sight)
Qumran Essenes "Community Rule" Dead Sea Scroll 1QS

"(believing the Gospel) by this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error"
1 John 4

the Way was called "the Zadok way", or "the way of the Ancestors"
Zadok meaning just/righteous and the ancestors I think going
back beyond Abraham and Moses all the way to Adam, the first Melchizedek
the way of faith, as the Just (righteous in God's sight) live by Faith Habakkuk 2

"if you obey the voice of the LORD"
"...but if your heart turns away so that you do not hear"
"therefore, choose life, that you may live"
"obey His voice... for He is your Life" Deuteronomy 30

"my sheep hear my voice" John 10
"I am the way the truth and the life" John 14

"The Way of Light in this world is to enlighten the minds of
men by making straight the paths of true righteousness...


eternal goodness
potent wisdom
enthusiasm (for righteousness)
Holy purpose
magnificent purity

these are the foundation for the sons of Truth in the world
(there is) reward for all who walk in these..."


Christian liberty/Love fulfills the Law/walking in the Spirit (NKJV)

"Stand therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free
and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
I say to you that if you (do, then) Christ will profit you nothing.

You brethren have been called to liberty...
I...say then, walk in the Spirit
if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the (Mosaic) law

Now the works of the flesh are evident...
but the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, longsuffering/patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control
against such there is no law.

If we live in the Spirit, let us walk in the Spirit"
- Galatians 5

Are those in Jesus lawless then?

"This is love for God, to obey His commands. And His commands are not burdensome." 1 John 5
"Carry each others burdens. and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6
