Jesus’ Gospel: Lection 79:1-9
Jesus Tells Priests, Scribes & Pharisees
A Greater Than Moses Is Here
Yet that Truth Had Been Hidden For Centuries
In the Beginning
Early Church Fathers stated in their epistles that the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, were all based upon Jesus’ Original Doctrine, and among the names they gave to His Doctrine were: the Hebrew Gospel; the Gospel of the Hebrews; and the Gospel of the Nazarenes. Today the Gospel of the Nazarenes is known as the Gospel of the Holy Twelve. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, within the King James Bible, KJV, and the Catholic Bible of the same era, contain Verses that are the same as those recorded within the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, and so does the Gospel According to John. Keeping that in mind, when you compare Verses 1 through 8 within the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, Lection 79, to the Verses within John, Mark and Luke, which are below, you will see the early Church Fathers’ statements, regarding the Synoptic Gospels, and my statement regarding the Gospel According to John, were absolutely correct.
NOTE: The Gospel of the Holy Twelve is available in a PDF format, and as an E-Book download, through this link:
Lection 79:1 = John 8:57 - Lection 79:2 = John 8:58
Lection 79:3 = John 18:20 - Lection 79:4 = John 18: 22-23
Lection 79:5 = Mark 14:56 - Lection 79:6 = Mark 14:57-58
Lection 79:7 = Mark 14:60-61 - Lection 79:8 = Luke 22:67-68
Verses 1 through 9, of Lection 79, identified above, convey the events which took place after Judas betrayed Jesus, and Verse 9 contains some important statements, which are not in the New Testament. The facts contained within those statements, reveal the exact opportunity Judas sought to betray Jesus, and the exact reason the Jews demanded Jesus’ crucifixion, wherein the New Testament does not.
Abolish the Sacrifices
The first section of Verse 9 that I will address is, “Dost thou abolish the sacrifices of the law, and the eating of flesh as Moses commanded?” The important part of that statement is, “abolish the sacrifices,” as it fulfills the Daniel 8:11 prophecy, which is, “and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away.” Jesus preached that fact in many Lections throughout the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, yet that information is not found within the New Testament. By the way, Verse 3 of Lection 28, which is below, contains this statement, “he cometh to put away the bloody sacrifices of the law,” and obviously, it also fulfills the Daniel 8:11 prophecy.
Behold A Greater Than Moses Is Here
The next important statement within Verse 9 is, “Behold, a greater than Moses is here.” Jesus preached, “Behold, a greater than Moses is here,” in several Lections of the Gospel of the Holy Twelve. To illustrate that fact, a few of the Verses in which He did, are below, and I have highlighted the applicable sections:
Lection 25 – Sermon on the Mount
Verse 8 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the law or the prophets till all be fulfilled. But behold One greater than Moses is here, and he will give you the higher law, even the perfect Law, and this Law shall ye obey.
Verse 9 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these commandments which he shall give, and shall teach men so, they shall be called the least in the kingdom; but whosoever shall do, and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven.
Lection 28:3 Ye believe that Moses indeed commanded such creatures to be slain and offered in sacrifice and eaten, and so do ye in the Temple, but behold a greater than Moses is herein and he cometh to put away the bloody sacrifices of the law, and the feasts on them, and to restore to you the pure oblation and unbloody sacrifice as in the beginning, even the grains and fruits of the earth.
Lection 51:18 But, behold, a greater than Moses is here! and they were wrath and took up stones to cast at him. And Jesus passed through their midst and was hidden from their violence.
It’s clear, “behold One greater than Moses is here,” is a prominent and very important teaching within the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, and the bold section above, within Lection 25, Verse 8, certainly fulfills the Jeremiah 31:31 prophecy, which I will soon discuss.
Sermon On the Mount
I included Verse 9 above, with Verse 8 of Lection 25, as it is required to make an extremely important point. Lection 25:8-9, which is from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, ties directly with Matthew 5:17-19, and when one reads Matthew 5:17-19, they will find that this section of Lection 25:8, “But behold One greater than Moses is here, and he will give you the higher law, even the perfect Law, and this Law shall ye obey,” is missing from Verse 18.
The fact that statement is missing from Verse 18, is extremely important, for it leads the way to keep in play the Hebrew Laws of the Old Testament that had their beginnings in Genesis and Exodus, which Jesus had preached against. When one reads Matthew 5:19, KJV, which is the same as Verse 9 of Lection 25 above, the reader is left with no other option than to believe Jesus had been talking about the Hebrew Laws of the Old Testament. In fact, Jesus brought us a new covenant, and it was made plain by the fact He preached against many Hebrew Laws during His Messianic Ministry, and as I already mentioned, that is the absolute factor which ultimately led to His Crucifixion.
Jeremiah 31:31 tells us, “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah. The statement that is within Lection 25:8, and is missing from Matthew 5:18, “he will give you the higher law, even the perfect Law, and this Law shall ye obey,” fulfills the Jeremiah 31:31 prophecy, yet the fact that Jesus brought a new covenant to the Israelites, is not found within the New Testament.
I should mention one commandment which Jesus gave to His chosen 12, is partially included in the New Testament, and that is found in John 13:34, KJV, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.”
That is a Commandment Jesus gave to His chosen Twelve during the Last Supper, which is found in Lection 76, Verse 5, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another and all the creatures of God. Love is the fulfilling of the law. Love is of God, and God is love. Whoso loveth not, knoweth not God.”
When comparing the two Verses, John 13:34 and Lection 76:5, one can readily see the significant differences, for these statements Jesus made: “love all the creatures of God;” and “Love is of God, and God is love,” have been eliminated.
Think about this for a bit: why would the author, or authors of John, have changed Jesus’ Commandment in the manner in which they did: First of all, if God’s creatures were to be loved, as Jesus Commanded, how could they have been utilized as a sacrifice to redeem mankind from their sins? The statement, Love all the creatures of God, would certainly set aside the blood sacrifice instituted by Moses in Exodus 24:5-8, wouldn’t it?
Second of all, since Love is of God, and God is love, why would He have demanded the sacrifice of His innocent creatures, especially when the creatures had committed no sin, to redeem mankind from the sins they had committed? And why would God have been vindictive, as He has been portrayed to be in the Old Testament? And why would God have helped to fulfill all the atrocities committed against his children, which are portrayed within the Old Testament?
