We Must Understand The Old Testament Age And Doctrine Of Matthew, Mark, Luke And John
-Before The Cross-To Understand The Different Covenants/Testaments In The Bible
WE MUST INTERPRET THE BIBLE By “Whole” Covenants - Not By Single “Individual” Verses
WHAT YOU MUST KNOW: Because the Bible is composed of a series of different old and new testaments/covenants, to understand the Bible one must study and understand the Bible by “whole” or “complete” covenants. One must not attempt to string together verses from one or all different covenants in the Bible. Each Old and New Bible Covenant, with its different commands and promises, stands separate and apart from all other covenants - for each covenant applies only to the people with whom God has made each specific covenant.
THE TEACHING OF EACH BOOK IN THE BIBLE INDICATES TO WHICH COVENENT THAT BOOK BELONGS!And the teaching within the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John show clearly that these books belong to the Old Testament.
NO ONE VERSE OF SCRIPTURE CONTAINS THE FULL MEANING OF ANY NEW TESTAMENT DOCTRINE! For example, John 3:16 does not even belong in the New Testament much less contain the New Testament plan of salvation.
MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN are in the New Testament only because the Roman Catholic Church moved them from the Old Testament to the New in 1486AD just to get Mary into the New Testament.
REMEMBER, THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMENT DOCTRINE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT!
What is the greatest hindrance today in understanding the Bible? Is it an accurate translation of the ancient Hebrew or Greek languages, the geography, cultures, difficult foreign names or unfamiliar places? Is it the number of the 66 books, the volume of the 750,000 words, 1189 chapters, and 31,000 verses of the Bible? Is it the selection of the right English version or translation of the Scriptures? No, in reality, it is simply the failure to "rightly divide" (2 Tim. 3:16-17) between the teachings of the Old and New Testaments.
To understand the dilemma of the modern Bible, we must realize that Roman Catholic publishers, translators and printers of the Bible in 1486AD "wrongly divided" the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John -- before the cross (MMLJ/BC) -- and placed them in the New Testament rather than in the Old Testament Mosaical covenant where they actually belong. Where Christ, the Holy Spirit and the apostles placed these four books in their inspired revelatiom and teaching. As a result of this Roman Catholic "heresy" in dividing between the books of the Old and New Testaments, millions have misunderstood and misinterpreted Christ's teaching of the old covenant law of Moses in MMLJ/BC as new covenant "teaching” or "doctrine.”
