God has dealt with mankind in three different ways and these are: The Patriarchal age, The Mosaic or Jewish age, and The Christian age.            

 

The Patriarchal age started from the creation to the time of Moses. God spoke through the family head, or fathers. Example; 

Noah in Gen. 6:13-14, 7:1; 9:8, Abraham, Gen. 12:1-3; 22:17-18 and Cain, Gen. 4:9.

 

Jacob's name changed to Israel by God. Gen. 32:27-28, Israel gave birth to twelve sons known as the twelve tribes of Israel. Famine forced them to Egypt, Gen. 45-46

 

Finally God raised a deliverer in a person of Moses to deliver His people from Egypt, Exodus 3:1-10. They became a great nation fulfilling the first two parts of the promise to Abraham, Gal. 3:13-14, 16, 19, 24-29.

 

Mosaic or Jewish Age covers approximately 1500 years, from Moses to the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. After Moses led the people out of bondage, God gave His laws to them at Mount Sinai, Ex. 20-21, this is the Ten Commandments, Ex. 20:1-18; Deut. 5:1-22. The ten commandments and moral, ceremonial, and civil laws formed one covenant, Lev. 19:1-37; 20:1-27; 24:10-13; 24:22. They were punished when they disobey any part of the law. Joshua 1:7-8, Deut. 28:58-68. Death was the sentence for any of the commandments they break and sin like adultery. Deut. 22:22-25; 21:18-21. The man who violated the Sabbath law. Numbers 15:32-36. Even changing the God's law of worship. Lev. 10:1-2. The law was designed to prepare people for Christ Jesus. Gal. 3:24-25, Heb. 10:1.

 

To be continued with the last dispensation, thus, Christian age.... Amen!

    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

    I am led to reach my hand out, in love, to those in need.

May I ask where the discussion is?

Discussion will come after last dispensation. Thanks and God bless you...

 

2 Timothy 2:15

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

I do not believe that it is easy to splice up the bible in different ages. Many use that type of thinking to teach that passages like Matthew 24 or the sermon on the mount do not apply to modern disciples of Jesus Christ today.
