    There is not one example recorded where it could be said Jesus was “teaching the law” in the sense of being justified by adhering to the law.

    Otherwise He would have contradicted Himself repeatedly every time He promised that whoever believes on Him has eternal life.

    “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”

    John 5:24

    Jesus assessed the heart motives and secrets of the thought life, areas the law could not deal with.

    And He commanded His teaching to be taught to every nation.

    It is all NEW covenant.

    So, the devil comes along and calls His teaching “old covenant” to try and stop it being preached and taught.

    Joseph Prince helped to popularize the idea that Jesus taught the Old Covenant.

    He is a prosperity preacher, and has become very wealthy through merchandising his message, and “his” church even owns a shopping mall.

    It seems obvious that his motive is to try and avoid embarrassment.

    He says Jesus preached law, not grace.

    Therefore they can dismiss or disguise their covetousness and ego trip under “grace” when the discrepancy between how they live and how Jesus lived is compared.

    Liberals do the same, but with them it’s more a moral dimension. They dismiss Jesus moral standards as “under law” and not applicable to them “under grace”.

    Here’s an example, would Jesus marry a gay couple?

    Of course not.

    But Liberals say that was back then, but now, under the new covenant He would.

    They put Jesus of Nazareth under the old covenant so they can excuse their sin.

    But all they’ve done is create an imaginary “Jesus”.

    You would think that the teaching of the Apostles as the implementation of the teaching of Jesus is simply a given.

    It would be bizarre to think that somehow the Holy Spirit working so mightily through the Apostles and early believers would have failed to demonstrate in real life what Jesus taught and commanded.

    But these are bizarre times we live in.
