1 Do the Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John Belong in the Old or New Testament? Matthew Mark Luke John

2 The four books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, before the cross, must scripturally be placed in the Old Testament age and law of Moses as originally taught in the first century by Christ, the Holy Spirit and inspired apostles, and not in the New Testament and new covenant age as done today by uninspired Roman Catholic translators and publishers of our original modern Bibles. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

3 Many today mistakenly believe that preaching stories from the Old Testament, rehashing and misrepresenting the Old Testament work, mission and teaching of the Old Testament law of Moses by Christ in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John -- before the cross -- is New Testament doctrine. Such teaching is not now and it has never been the New Testament truth of Christ. All New Testament doctrine is in Acts 2 through Revelation 22. (BIBLE STUDIES...by Dan Billingsly The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

4 1.When did the authority and jurisdiction ( sic ) of the Old Testament end? 2.Was the time between the end of the Old and beginning of the New Testament the fifty days between the cross and the day of Pentecost, or the 450 years between the time of Malachi and Matthew? 3.When did the New Testament age and revelation of New Covenant doctrine begin? The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

5 Dan's Answer: No, none of Jesus' teaching in MMLJ/BC is New Testament doctrine. Jesus, as the last Old Testament prophet sent by God to Israel ( Deut. 18:15-18; Acts 3:22 ), a prophet like Moses, Jeremiah, Malachi, John the baptizer of Israel or any other Old Testament Mosaical prophets, spoke for God to Old Testament Israel only ( Matt. 15:24 ).... Don's Question 1: Is there ANYTHING that Jesus said in M, M, L, or J that specifically applies to the Christian under the New Testament? If so – what? I am willing to affirm that Jesus taught His disciples how it was going to be in the church age on many occasions, and some of the laws by which they, ( and we ) would be governed. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

6 Dan's Answer: Every word in the teaching of Christ in MMLJ/BC was His teaching of the Old Testament law of Moses to Israel... Don's Question 1: Is there ANYTHING that Jesus said in M, M, L, or J that specifically applies to the Christian under the New Testament? If so – what? I am willing to affirm that Jesus taught His disciples how it was going to be in the church age on many occasions, and some of the laws by which they, (and we) would be governed. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

7 Dan's Answer: While no one knows the exact date of MMLJ/BC;... the date of writing makes no difference - In all of the teaching of the law of Moses by Christ in MMLJ/BC, He was correcting the false teaching of the law by the rabbis and others (Matt. 15:1-10), and in this He was restoring and guiding the Jews back to faithfulness before God as the law was about to be abolished. Dons Question 2: When were these books written and for whom…were they written during the period governed by the Old Law and were they written for the Jews for guidance and instruction of their Law, or were they written during the New Covenant dispensation and for Christians to use to prove that Jesus was the Messiah and what He taught? The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

8 Don, I suggest that you select any passage from MMLJ/BC and show us by the Scriptures that it is New Testament doctrine. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

9 The Scriptures teach that the "Sermon on the Mount," Matthew chapters 5 through 7, is exclusively Old Testament doctrine. Affirm: Dan Billingsly Deny: Ethan R. Longhenry The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

10 When Jesus preached "the sermon on the mount" as the Old Testament Messiah sent only to old covenant Israel, His mission was to "restore" and "save" the "preserved remnant of Israel by "restoring" them from unfaithfulness to faithfulness in keeping their old covenant with Jehovah (Matt. 1:21). His mission was not to "save" alien sinners of the world. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

11 But I say unto you ( different from the Law of Moses !) Whoever is angry without a cause "Swear not at all"; " Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her... "; " Whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication... "; " whosoever shall smite thee... "; " Love your enemies "??? The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

12 But I say unto you ( different from the Law of Moses !) Jesus went further than Moses – Jesus was stricter! Jesus went to the heart of the matter – Hebrews 10:16 Jesus was dealing with kingdom principles – Matthew 5:3-10 The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

13 John 3:16 - Like all other passages in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – before the cross – was Old Testament teaching of the law of Moses for only the nation of Israel.... none of Jesus' teaching in MMLJ/BC is New Testament doctrine. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

14 Except one is born of water and the spirit (not Old Covenant teaching) The new birth of John 3:3-7 is the same new birth we read about in the following passages: ( 1 Cor. 4:15; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal 6:15; James 1:18; Eph. 5:26; Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:22, 23; 1 John 5:1 ). The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

15 This study... will show that all men today are not accountable to the Mosaical covenant law spoken by Christ in Matthew 19, nor will all men be judged by the human "traditions" among churches of Christ now surrounding this passage.... the Old Testament doctrine found in Matthew 19 certainly does not apply to anyone -- Jew or Gentile -- in this New Testament age! The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

16 And I say to you And I say to you ( Matt.19 is not Old Covenant teaching!) These brethren know that if they can convince themselves and others that Mt. 5:31,32 and Mt. 19:1-9 pertain to the law of Moses, they can discard this teaching as having been nailed to the cross ( Colossians 2:14 ). The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

17 And I say to you And I say to you ( Matt.19 is not Old Covenant teaching!) Reference back to the beginning– Genesis 1:17; 2:24 – Indicates Gods continual will– Matthew 19:4-6 – Jesus teaching different from Moses teaching– Matthew 5:32; 19:8,9 – Eunuchs for the kingdoms sake– Matthew 19:12 The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

18 Jesus Christ " came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God " (Mark 1:14; Matthew 10:7). Jesus chose twelve Apostles and " sent them to preach the kingdom of God " (Luke 9:2). Jesus told a man who promised to follow Him, " let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God " (Luke 9:60). Jesus sent the seventy and they preached the kingdom of God (Luke 10:9). The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?

19 Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it. The Four Gospels..Where Do They Belong?
