The Old Testament “Mission, Words, Teaching, And Doctrine”
Of John The Baptist And Jesus The Messiah Sent Only To Old Testament Israel in MMLJ/BC
By Dan Billingsly
To understand the Bible – especially the New Testament, one must study, learn by “rightly dividing” between the Old and New Covenants. We must respect the difference between the Old and New Testament “words of Christ” revealed in their different old and new covenant ages.
To understand the Bible, one must know which books, chapters and verses of the Bible constitute the Old and/or New Covenants. The divine teaching within both the Old and New Testament Scriptures reveal the following divisions in the Bible.
1. The Old Testament Patriarchal Age:Genesis 1 through Exodus 19.
2. The Old Testament Mosaical Age: Exodus 20 through Matthew 27, Mark 15, Luke 23 and John 19.3.
3. The 50 days between the Old and New Testaments described in Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John20-21 and Acts 1.4. The New Testament Age:Acts 2 through Revelation 22.
4. The New Testament Age: Acts 2 through Revelation 22.
The Old Testament “Words” Of Christ – The Last Old Testament “Prophet” Sent To Israel.
During the Old Testament age of MMLJ/BC, before Jesus was anointed and appointed to be the universal Savior of all Christians in the Lord’s church for this New Testament age, God prophesied that his Son, Jesus Christ, would be his final “prophet” sent to “save” his old covenant people in Israel. That Old Covenant salvation for only Israel came through Christ’s teaching of the Old Covenant law of Moses as described in the four Old Covenant books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – before the cross (MMLJ/BC).
Deuteronomy 18:18-19 ( KJV ) “18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”
