1 Do the Words of Jesus Apply Today?
“MMLJBC Old Testament Teaching?” (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John Before Cross) (Part 1)

2 Why this Doctrine? Provides for fellowship with those in second marriages regardless of the cause of the previous putting away, Matthew 5:31-32; 19:3-9 Part 1

3 Why this Doctrine? “Christ’s Old Testament teaching on marriage, divorce and remarriage in Matthew 19 is not New Testament doctrine, but his restatement of the true law of Moses in contrast to the false rabbinical ‘traditions’ of the Jews on marriage, divorce and remarriage.” Dan Billingsly Part 1

4 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Jerry Bassett (Rethinking Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage) “It is often assumed that Jesus used The Beatitudes to introduce new qualities which would characterize primarily, if not exclusively, those who would become citizens of the spiritual kingdom he came to establish. Truly, these qualities are required of Christians… Part 1

5 Sermon on Mount Teaches OT
“…however, on the particular occasion when Jesus delivered the Sermon of the Mount, he addressed Jews who were still obligated to the Law of Moses. His purpose, as at other times in teaching the Jewish multitudes, was to call them to repentance with reference to the law under which they lived, the Law of Moses. Part 1

6 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
“In so doing, Jesus was preparing them for acceptance of the kingdom which God had sent him to establish…We should not be surprised, then, if we find Jesus directing the Jews back to the teaching of Moses, and of the Old Testament in general… Part 1

7 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
“…in The Beatitudes … everything Jesus declared to be essential to the enjoyment of spiritual happiness had alreday [sic.] been enjoined on his hearers, the Jews, by the teaching of the Old Testament.” (Pages 13-14, emphasis added) Part 1

8 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Jerry Bassett (Rethinking Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage) “The contention that Jesus’ words were intended to point the Jews to a higher, more spiritual plane than had Moses may be well intended, but it is false and misleading.” (Page 23, emphasis added) Part 1

9 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Samuel Dawson (Taped sermon: “The Sermon on the Mount, the Law of Moses, and the New Covenant,” 4/15/90, Sumner, WA) -On Matthew 5:17ff: “…a section that obviously is not part of the new covenant teaching. Jesus teaching Jews, bringing them back to the Law of Moses – and He’s going to be reinforcing exactly what Moses said.” (emphasis his) Part 1

10 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Samuel Dawson (Taped sermon: “The Sermon on the Mount, the Law of Moses, and the New Covenant,” 4/15/90, Sumner, WA) -On Matthew 5:19: The new covenant was “not going to be revealed for three more years!” Part 1

11 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Samuel Dawson (Taped sermon: “The Sermon on the Mount, the Law of Moses, and the New Covenant,” 4/15/90, Sumner, WA): -On Matthew 5:32: “Jesus is teaching the same thing in 5:32 that Moses taught in Deuteronomy 24:1-4.” Part 1

12 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Samuel Dawson (Taped sermon: “The Sermon on the Mount, the Law of Moses, and the New Covenant,” 4/15/90, Sumner, WA): “Don’t assume that Matthew 5 and Matthew 19 is addressed to Christians: It wasn’t spoken to Christians. He was speaking to Jews, and He was saying it in a context of ‘I didn’t come to throw Moses out, I came to get you back to Moses the way you ought to have been.’” Part 1

13 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Lowell Williams (Sermon: Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage, Part I, 5/9/10, Monroe Valley church of Christ, Monroe WA) “Jesus taught the Jews under the law. He was not teaching any Gentiles, he was teaching them what Moses had to say.” Part 1

14 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Lowell Williams (Sermon: Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage, Part I), 5/9/10, Monroe Valley church of Christ, Monroe WA) “Every preacher and eldership that I know of in the entire Puget Sound – you look at every last one of them – and they agree with what I teach. I do not have a weird approach. So, it’s not going to be an approach that I take that somebody else hadn’t had. It’s an approach that everybody in all of this area takes, and throughout the country, many, many, likewise.” Part 1

15 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Dan Billingsly: “Jesus revealed no New Testament doctrine during the thirty-three years of the Old Testament age described in MMLJBC.” (Letter to Dennis Ross, Nov-Dec, 2004) Part 1

16 “Sermon on Mount Teaches OT”
Dan Billingsly (www.biblestudiesbydanbillingsly.org) “Explains in detail why Malachi is not the last book of the Old Testament and why Matthew is not the first book of the New Testament. Explains why Matthew 27, Mark 15, Luke 23 and John 19 describe the ‘end’ of the Old Testament, and why the New Testament begins in Acts 2.” Part 1
