God gave Jesus to Israel through the virgin-birth of Mary (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew, chapter 1), and when he reached the age of 30 (Luke 3:23), Jesus became God’s voice in Israel. Fourteen (14) times in the book of John,Jesus declared that he was speaking and interpreting the law of Moses for Israel – rather than as many assume today – revealing New Testament teaching (i.e. John 6:38; 7:16-17). No divine author ever declared that God revealed any New Testament doctrine in the four books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – before the cross.

1. MMLJ/BC describe the last thirty-three years of the Old Testament age -- not the beginning of the New Testament age. Therefore, Malachi is not the last book of the Old Testament age and Matthew is not the first book of the New Testament age. This means that there is no New Testament doctrine revealed in MMLJ/BC.

2. In MMLJ/BC, John the baptizer of Israel and Jesus the Messiah of Israel were both Old Testament “prophets,” not New Testament“evangelists.” They both “restored” unfaithful” Jews back to God under the Old Testament law of Moses, they did not “save” alien sinners through faith in and obedience to the New Testament “gospel.”

3. In MMLJ/BC, both JohnJesus was an Old Testament “Israelite” -- not a New Testament “Christian.” Beforethe cross, Jesus was a member of the Old Testament “kingdom” of Israel -- not the New Testament “kingdom.”

4. In MMLJ/BC, Jesus declares more that 100 times that he is teaching the Old Testament law of Moses (Matt.7:12); not once did he ever state that he was teaching New Testament doctrine. In MMLJ/BC, several hundred times the Scriptures describe him teaching the Old Testament law of Moses; not once do they ever describe him teaching New Testament doctrine. This means that there is no New Testament doctrine revealed in MMLJ/BC.

The New Testament “Words” Of Christ – The Savior Of The New Testament “Church”

Because the mission and teaching of the Old Covenant “words” of Christ in MMLJ/BC were “limited” to only Old Testament Israel (Matt. 10:5-6), we must look to the books, chapters and verses of the New Testament“words” of Christ in Acts 2 through Revelation 22 for New Testament doctrine set forth for the Lord’s church  today.

Neither Christ, the Holy Spirit nor apostles ever considered Christ’s Old Testament teaching of the law of Moses in MMLJ/BC as New Testament doctrine – and neither should we today. Yes, the New Testament teaches that all of Acts 2 through Revelation 22 – not MMLJ/BC – are the New Covenant “words” of Christ revealed through the Holy Spirit and the apostles. This doctrine is what Christ“prophesied” in John 16:13; and what the apostles confirmed in 1 Corinthians 2:13 and 14:37. “All “ New Testament “truth” was revealed by Christ through the Holy Spirit to the chosen apostles in Acts 2 through Revelation 22.

Paul confirmed the New Testament word of Christ by the miracles of the apostles: “36What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? 37If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 38But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant” (1 Corinthians 14:36-38; see also Mark16:20).
