Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? – John 5:45-47
Many people today say just live in, study and obey the New Testament, that Jesus is the author or a newer and better covenant, that Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament when He died, that the LAW has no power over us. To the BELIEVER, that is TRUE. However, the above verses show that the laws of the Old Testament are still in effect today. Whether you believe in Jesus or not, you can’t go around killing people. Exodus 20:13 In fact, if you DO NOT believe in Jesus, you are going to be JUDGED by the laws of the Old Testament and Jesus is not going to be your accuser, MOSES is!
This concludes my notes and thoughts on John Chapter 5
