Fifth, in MMLJBC, the old covenant “faith” of the Jews in the Messiah was a work of the Old Testament law of Moses (Jn. 8:24). There is not one mention of New Testament “faith” or “belief” in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ in MMLJBC.


Sixth, Malachi was not the “last” prophet or book of the Old Testament, and Matthew was not the “first” book of the New Testament. The New Testament clearly states that Christ’s death on the cross was the “end” of the Old Testament (Rom. 10:4), the law of Moses “ended” when Christ “nailed” the old  Mosaical covenant to the cross (Col. 2:14).  The Old Testament “age” and Mosaical covenant was “abolished” by Christ , not with


Seventh, MMLJ/BC reveal only  the Old Testament law of Moses for Israel on marriage, divorce and marriage in Matthew 19. Matthew 19 is Christ’s restatement of the law from the Old Testament law of Moses in Deuteronomy 24:1-4 -- in contrast to the false rabbinical “traditions” of Jesus’ day.. MMLJ/BC do not reveal New Testament doctrine on marriage, divorce and marriage, only 1 Corinthians 7 reveals new covenant doctrine for New Covenant “Christians” on these issues.


What About Matthew 19 And The Marriage, Divorce And Marriage Issues?


MMLJ/BC reveal only  the Old Testament law of Moses for Israel on marriage, divorce and marriage in Matthew 19:9. Matthew 19 is Christ’s restatement of the law from the Old Testament law of Moses in Deuteronomy 24:1-4 -- in contrast to the false rabbinical “traditions” of Jesus’ day.. MMLJ/BC do not reveal New Testament doctrine on marriage, divorce and marriage, only 1 Corinthians 7 reveals new covenant doctrine for New Covenant “Christians” on these issues.


Matthew 19 is not New Testament "doctrine"...because the apostle Paul stated that when Jesus spoke Matthew 19 Jesus was "a minister of the circumcision" in Old Testament Israel.  Jesus' Old Testament "mission" -- during his work as an old covenant   "prophet" to Israel -- was to "fulfill" the prophecies and confirm the promises that God had made to his old covenant people in Israel. Jesus' work in MMLJ/BC was not to establish the New Testament "age" and kingdom.

                    "Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers" (Rom. 15:8).

Matthew 19 is not New Testament "doctrine"...because every principle and prophecy of Jesus' teaching in MMLJ/BC  -- was taken directly from the Old Testament law of Moses in the books of Exodus through Malachi.


Again, more than forty times in MMLJ/BC -- Jesus quoted the law of Moses and showed his "fulfillment" of the Old Testament "prophecies" and teaching of the law and the prophets in the Old Testament.  Also, hundreds of  times, these four books describe Jesus teaching the old covenant law of Moses to the Jews of Israel  – in the Jewish temple and synagogues of his day.  Consider this example.

 JESUS SAID IN 33 AD: "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matt. 4:4).
