2. The teaching of Moses and the prophets about how many "witnesses" would be required under the law of Moses to put an Israelite to death. "At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death" (Deut. 17:6).
The teaching of Christ in MMLJ/BC about how many "witnesses" would be required under the law of Moses to put an Israelite to death. "It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true" (Jn. 8:17).
3. The teaching of Moses and the prophets to Israel on "loving" God. "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" (Deut. 6:5).
The teaching of Jesus in MMLJ/BC to Israel on "loving" God. "Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment" (Matt. 22:36-38).
Old Testament Teachings Of The Law Of Moses By Christ
That New Testament "Christians" Cannot Observe Today
While New Testament Christians can and should believe the historical veracity and "truth" of the Old Testament from Adam through Christ, none of these old Patriarchal or Mosaical covenants and their commandments for "faith" and the "practice of religion" are bound on the new covenant "church" or alien world today. The teaching of Christ in MMLJ/BC must be divided into two main divisions.
1) Jesus' "restatement" and teaching of the original law of Moses in "contrast" to the false rabbinical "traditions" about the law during the time of MMLJ/BC.
2) Jesus' Old Testament "prophecies" and "parables" in MMLJ/BC about the (then soon to come) New Testament "age."
Let us consider just a few of the following examples of Christ's "restatement" and teaching of the Old Testament law of Moses in MMLJ/BC that must not be taught as New Testament doctrine today.
1. Jesus under the law, just as Moses and the prophets before him (Lev. 13), taught the Old Testament Jews to offer animal sacrifices (Matt. 8:1-4). However, the New Testament church cannot teach that we should follow Christ's teaching and example in Matthew 8:1-4 for animal sacrifice today is contrary to Christ's new covenant doctrine (Gal. 5:4).
