until the baptism of John. in his ministry Jesus taught contrary to the Mosaic Law, He followed the ten commandments the covenant Law, not the mosaic Law, at least not during His ministry. two different doctrines, the law of moses which is for this purpose
deueronomy 31:26 " Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee. <<
the scripture says Jesus is the fulfillment of the law, it doesnt say He obeyed the mosaic Law, he clearly did not obey it Here is One example
john 8 "Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 2And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?( leviticus 20) 6This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.<<( deuteronomy 31: 26) But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground,<<( exodus 31:18) as though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. <<( exodus 34:1)
9And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: <( the effect of the Light ) and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more."
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 13The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true." <<< another accusation of the law of moses.
Here is Jesus teaching contrary to the law.
matthew 5 " Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Leviticus 24 " And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death. 18And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast. 19And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him; 20Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again. 21And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death. 22Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God. 23And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses."
this was so for adulterers also leviticus 20
instead of this eye for an eye doctrine of Moses, Jesus teaches forgiveness, turning the other cheek, blessing those who curse you, forgive and do not take vengeance...the law says take equal retribution.
they are two different things, before Jesus was annointed and began preaching the gospel, he surely followed the laws righteousness, when He was annointed He was giving the law, not following it. Moses mediated the law, Jesus the Gospel 2 contrary doctrines One for those under sentance of death, and one for those given eternal life
