Matthew 1:1 Or The Death Of Christ On The Cross
Written by admin on April 4, 2018
When it comes to right division, we need to understand that the New Testament, doctrinally, does not start until the death of Christ on the cross of Calvary. the people of Jesus’ day are still under the law, and still making animal sacrifices. The New Testament did not start in Matthew 1:1.
Hebrews 9:13-18 (KJB)
(13) For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
(14) How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
(15) And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
(16) For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
(17) For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
(18) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.
Just think of our last will and testament. We can go to a lawyer and get one made, but it does not come into affect until we die.
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJB)
(15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
