Was Jesus Under the Old Covenant?
I lost a subscriber to my Early Church History Newsletter yesterday. He disagreed with what I wrote in The Apostles' Gospel.

There's not much to disagree with in The Apostles' Gospel. It is a simple survey of what the apostles preached to the lost in the Book of Acts.
What he disagreed with is the implication of that survey because it forces us to question the gospel as we present it and understand it today.
He didn't mention any specifics that are in the book, but he did present a couple common modern arguments that I would like to address.
Are Jesus' Teachings Old Testament Law?
This person wrote:
The Gospels are not actually preaching the Gospel message to the church but preparing people under the law for the coming grace by showing them that their best efforts at keeping the law will end in failure. It's a transitional period of preparation for the Gospel of grace.
When a lawyer asks Jesus "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" Jesus responded, "What is written in the Law?" luke 10 Was Jesus lying? Was it too extreme? No he wasn't lying, YES, it was too extreme ...for any fallen human.
